January Beauty Favourites :)

I feel like I say this everytime but this month went really fast! I put myself on a spending ban to save some money and I've been trying to use up a lot of products so haven't bought that many new things but these have been my beauty favourites for this month.
My skin has been looking so pale recently and this has been a real savior! I've tried a few of the gradule tanners and this is my favourite. It smells of apricots and leaves my skin so soft and gives me a natural tan that isn't orange but makes my skin look healthier.I use this all through the year and I love it so much. 
I got this in a Soap & Glory set at christmas and i've been using it all month. It's a lovely floral scent that last really well for a body spray. It goes really well with my Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume I got for christmas too. 
I've had this a while now and never thought it did anything amazing since I was using it at night. Now i've started using it in the morning and I really like it. I always use Tea Tree products in the morning to help with my acne and this is really refreshing and light on the skin. I can't wait to use it in summer to freshen up with. 
This is my morning moisturiser and I love it. It leaves my face feeling soft and matte so is perfect under make-up because it's really light. I did a review on some First Aid Beauty products here.

I was so happy when this came out this month. I love the first Naked palette and i've been using this pretty much everyday since I got it. The shades i've been using the most are, Foxy, Bootycall, Tease and Busted for a simple everyday eye look.
I've mentioned before how much I lvoe these lipsticks, they're so moisturising and feel like you're just wearing a lipblam. Both the colours I have are great everyday colours and I use them all the time because they're so easy to wear.
I've had this since last summer and I've used it so much and still shows no signs of running out. It's completely matte and doesn't look muddy or orange on which is perfect since I have pale skin. It is also perfect to wear in Winter to warm up my complexions without looking over the top. I couldn't recommend this bronzer enough and it smells of chocolate! 
This has been my go to blush this month. It's a cream blush but it so easy to blend and apply. The colour looks so natural so is perfect for everyday. I will definitely be trying some more of their blushes since they are such good value and so easy to use. 
I bought this a few months back and I've just started using it again and I love it. It keeps my face matte all day and makes my foundation last longer and doesn't go patchy. This is one of the best drugstore primers i've tried and would definitely re-purchase it.
This was my go to everyday eye before I got the Naked 2 palette and it's a great trio. The shadows are so pigmented and easy to use. I use a primer with them so they don't crease. For the price of this trio you really can't go wrong. Here's some swatches:
So thats my favourites for this month. As I said i've been trying to use a lot of things up so not as many new make-up thigns but i've definitely re-discovered some old favourites this month which is always good.
