January Beauty Favorites

Happy Wednesday! How is your week going so far? I’m going to start sharing a few of my beauty favorites each month and give a little review about them. This month my top three favorites are the Mac Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Recollection, the Kat Von D Alchemist Palette and the the Origins GinZing moisturizer.

The MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in Recollection is definitely my favorite lipstick. Besides the beautiful color, the formula is amazing. I haven’t had issues with it wearing off much at the end of the day. It barely budges. I do have a problem getting it completely off because of how well it sticks, but that’s a good thing! It’s also very opaque so I skip out on the lip liner. The applicator is great as well. I prefer it over the usual doe foot most liquid lipsticks come with. I haven’t tried any other colors from this line, but I definitely will soon.

Next is the Origins GinZing Moisturizer. This is one of my favorites because it’s one of the few moisturizers that works well with my skin. I have combination skin, but it’s mostly on the oilier side. This moisturizer is very light and doesn’t cause my face to feel greasy. It also has a nice light scent that isn’t overwhelming so it’s very refreshing when you put it on. I always use it under makeup.

Lastly, the Kat Von D Alchemist Palette! The colors are so gorgeous and extremely pigmented. They would work perfectly as a highlighter or to add extra sparkle to an eye shadow look. I’ve added the shade {ultra-violet} amethyst over the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Recollection and it went perfect. I definitely recommend using your fingers to get the full pigmentation. When I use a brush it doesn’t seem to pick up as well, but from my experience that goes for any glittery shadow.

Shades from top to bottom: {green} emerald, {blue} saphyre, {ulta-violet} amethyst and {pink} opal
