A Rather Late January Favourites

Now 83, Don't Judge A Girl By Her Cover By Ally Carter, Maybelline Great Lash, Maybelline Super Stay 24hr Concealer, The Body Shop Born Lippy Lip Balm in Pomegranate
A rather late round up of my favourites from the previous month. Can't believe we are already a whole month into 2013!
I started reading the Gallagher girls series I think a couple of weeks ago and I instantly fell in love with them. I'd been wanting to read them for a while and I am glad to say I was not disappointed. I did think that they would just be about spies and they're romances and not really any mystery of intrigue like most other spy books but how I was wrong. These books are seriously addictive. 
I got Now 83 for Christmas and I have been listening to it on my Ipod since then. It filled with some of the most popular and some of my favourite songs of 2012 and I love it.
The three remaining things are basically the only makeup (bar my powder to set it all in place) products I have been wearing for the past month. Maybelline Great Lash is a really good mascara - it is super black and adds quite a bit of volume and definition. Its not great at separating and takes a bit of time to get them looking right ,so if your often rushed for time it may not be for you, but if you do have a extra minute or so it looks amazing!
I've been looking for a good dupe, available in the UK, for the Maybelline Baby Lips and I think I may have found it. This Body shop Lip Balm is just perfect . It is super moisturising and smells amazing but what makes it what I've been wanting for ages is that it has a pretty red tint. For someone who would love the wear red lipstick but isn't brave enough this is perfect for me. it just adds a subtle hint of red to your lips which looks absolutely gorgeous. I might do a separate review with swatches if anyone would like that?

But my stand-out over-all favourite is the Concealer. Unfortunately, my beloved No7 concealer was drying out my skin quite a bit and looking cakey. So I bought this one. Oh My Days. This stuff is frikkin' insane. When you wear it, it looks like you have perfect skin and are wearing no make-up. Perfect colour, not cakey, not drying..... need I go on? Best concealer ever. Full stop.

Also, I bought a new camera! ^_^. It is a Canon Ixus 500 HS and it is already making my photography so much better. I used it in this post (to be honest these pictures don't do it justice) and hope to use a lot more pictures from it on my blog.

I hope February will be great for all of you!
Lots Of Love, Helena
