January MVPs

3 Feb

We’re a few days late on this, but here are our MVPs for the month of January. These are the products we found ourselves picking up almost every day to use.


Benefit Blush in Sugarbomb –  I love this blush for an everyday look. It gives a natural flush, and had a matte finish. I like to pair it with Benefit’s High Beam or Urban Decay’s Urbanglow Cream Highlight for extra sparkle.

Stila Eye Shadow Trio in Bronze Glow – Red got me this eyeshadow for my birthday and it’s recently been my go-to shadow look. I use the medium shade on the lid, light shade as a highlight and then contour in the crease with the dark brown.

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Brown – I have Buxom’s Lashliner in black, and a wanted a brown version. Instead of paying $15 for Buxom’s, I decided to give Maybelline’s version a try. It works just as well, and I’m really happy with it. I was a little iffy about the brush that comes with it, but it works great! Definitely my current favorite eyeliner.

L’Oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator  in Black Copper (for blue eyes) – Red told me about this mascara a couple weeks ago, and found it at Target. I possibly made a special trip there to get one, and I’m glad I did because I haven’t been able to find my color since. This mascara is amazing – it makes my lashes look sooooo long, doesn’t smudge and I love the hint of sparkle. I want to try it in Black Crystal too, but I’ve been unable to find that shade since I decided that I needed it.


NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk – I bought this pencil a while back and only used it a couple of times. Apparently this month, it’s been calling my name because I’ve been using it like crazy. I like to use it on my lid and layer a shiny light color over it. I also use it in the inner corner of my eye and under my brow for a highlight.

Lorac Baked Matte Satin Blush in Velvet Rope – I purchased this blush a while back to and have been using it almost every day. It gives my cheeks a nice rosy pop of color, especially during this drab time of winter.

L’Oreal Double Extend Eye Illuminator in Black Bronze (for green eyes) – Like Pants, this has been my go to mascara this month. I love the way this mascara looks on my lashes.  The hint of shimmer definitely livens things up a bit too.
