Jan. ’19 Friday Favorites: Beauty Edition

Drumroll, please!

I’ve decided to bring back Friday Favorites this year! For those of you that are new to the blog, on the last Friday of every month, I will do a roundup of my new favorite things to spread the goodness with y’all! This month is beauty edition, because I got some great stuff for Christmas that I want you to know about.

1. Too Faced Sugar Cookie Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette

My sister-in-law got me this cute little eyeshadow compact for Christmas, and I love it! The colors are so fun, and there is a great mix of matte and sparkly shades. And the palette actually smells like cookies! I found this great tutorial video to help figure out what colors to use where. I’ve used it for work and for a fancy event, it’s a really versatile palette!

2. NYX Professional Makeup Super Skinny Eye Marker

This is not a new liner to me, but I had to put it on here because I love it! I am SO bad at eyeliner but I wanted something that would help me get better at it, and I really wanted to get that crisp winged liner look. I love this marker because it doesn’t smudge like a pencil and it’s easier to use than a brush!

3. Yves St. Laurent Mon Paris Eau de Parfum Spray

I have a confession. Most of my “perfume” is still Bath and Body works spray. I know, I’m a grown woman and I should probably get rid of it. I just can’t bring myself to spend so much money on perfume. But after I realized I had some money left on a gift card, I decided to look for a new travel sized perfume, because I have commitment issues with buying an entire bottle. I bought the Yves St. Laurent Mon Paris spray, and I decided that this is going to be MY perfume. It. Is. Amazing. I love that it’s a spray rather than a roll-on, and it’s easy to throw in your purse. It’s so elegant and fresh!

4. Flying Horses ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip

This lip gloss was another gift from my sister-in-law (she has great taste) and I love the color! It goes great over lipstick or by itself, and the best part is it’s not sticky. It’s a sheer dusty rose color and goes well with everything!

5. Seize the Gray Nail Polish

I’m a big fan of Sally Hansen insta-dri nail polish – they have great colors and it goes on so smoothly! I grabbed this light gray nail polish before the holidays, and I have loved it. It’s close to white, but it’s very opaque so you don’t need a lot. It looks like it’s not being sold in stores anymore, just on eBay, but here is a similar color!

Hope you guys enjoyed my Friday Favorites reboot! If you have any great beauty products you’d recommend, let me know!
