January Favourites | NARS, Elf, MAC, Red Cherry Lashes & Lots of Swatches! ♥

Hello again everyone!

 Here's my December/January favourites. I wanted to show you what I've been loving lately, but more in detail with some swatches to help give you a better idea of the products!

Hope you enjoy :)

Overview:  NARS Bronzer in Irresistblement
 Kabuki Brush from eBay 
NARS Copacabana illuminator 
Red Cherry Lashes style #43 
Maybelline Lipstick in Honey Beige
NARS Concealer in Chantilly 
Face cleanser (little pink thing!)
Elf Cosmetics Contour Kit
MAC Liners in Boldly Bare, Oak, Spice & Stripdown (all swatched below)

Swatch of NARS Concealer in Chantilly. Palest shade with a slight pink undertone, very similar colour to my skin tone which is AMAZING as I am so so pale! This concealer is very similar to the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer, however I prefer this consistency and coverage.

Elf Cosmetics Contour Kit
The darkest shade is a cool toned deep brown, with  very slight shimmer to it. I use this for slight contour and eyeshadow.

Nars Bronzer in Irresistblement 
Quite a warm shade light-ish bronzer, not to be used for contouring, especially not on pale skin as it comes off quite orange. Nice for warming up the face for a bronzey glow.

Swatches of the bronzers! Elf  bronzer on the left and NARS on the right.
The ELF bronze colour is more of a contour shade, however NARS irresisiblement on the right is more of a warm tone lighter shade, better used for bronzing than contouring as it can look slightly orange.

10 Synthetic kabuki face & eye brushes for £7.99. Bargain ! The quality is absolutely lovely, so soft and the fibers blend out foundation with ease. I've heard these look and feel very similar to Sigma Brushes.
I've linked the same brushes but for even cheaper here -->

A swatch of NARS Illuminator in Copacabana. Oh my. It is out of this world!! The pic above is just a thin layer over the back of my hand. It is the brightest and most pigmented liquid highlighter i've ever used, without a doubt. Its very thin in consistency however blends beautifully into the skin to give you an amazing rosy glow!! Amazing.
I really wanted to swatch the MAC Liners as I was curious about the actual colours before I bought them myself. I wanted to know how different the colours were in real life rather than images. Above are the swatches for Oak, Boldly Bare, Spice & Stripdown. Boldly Bare is my favourite as it's a nude pale pink which looks best on my pale skin. The other liners look a little bit better suited on tan/darker skin as they don't then look as orange. 

Thanks all for reading,I hope you all enjoyed my December/January favourites! If you have any questions please comment down below and i'll reply as soon as I can :)!
