Best and Worst of the bunch ~ January 2010 Edition

It’s coming to the end of the month now and I am due for this post so those who are still waiting on the many promised reviews shall have to wait until next week. I think a January post should be kept for January no?  But because of my time constraints, I shall not be too flowery with much of the description and will be very straight to the point.  So here are the stars of January 2010….

#1 – Lush’s Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar
Yes I’m still harping on about this product.  This is LUSH’s Wiccys Magic Muscle massage bar and it’s been so kind to me since all this stress from revision h as occured.  It helps out my back from slouching (bad, bad habit!) and it makes me feel alive when I use it.  I’ve been breaking bits off for a shower from time to time and I love it.  I massage all over after a shower when body is still drench with water.  I massage my joints and then dry off, leave the bathroom a happy lady!

#2 – Garnier Caffeine Tinted 2in1 Eye Roll-on
Having just done a review on this product I don’t feel to elaborate much on this product.  I’ve been using this day in day out, touching up and touching go.  I’m pleasantly pleased and would recommend this to a lot of people.  I’m considering getting one for my sister and mum, they’ll love it. 

#3 – Origin’s Wholegrain Make-up 
Unfortunately i Haven’t had the time to do a review on this yet but I did promise a subscriber so it will be done.  I’ve been using this every day and i love that it gives just enough coverage for daily use and doesn’t ever look cakey.  It’s very natural on the skin and apparently very natural on the inside.  I’ve not tried too many Origins products in the past but I’ve become increasingly interested so you will see more Origins products from me in the future. 

#4  DSC02498[8]- Maxfactor Second Skin Foundation
Having also talked about this quite a bit I don’t want to start a review here but I have to say it’s become one of my favourite drugstore foundations.  Other drugstore foundations I adore are such as Revlon Colorstay and Rimmel Stay Matte and while the first gives a full coverage look and the latter gives an also matte but medium coverage, this is fresh, dewy and also medium coverage.  I would say for me its similar to MAC’s Studio Sculpt except I find this goes on a tab bit smoother and is very blendable.  This makes my skin even in a flash and I especially love it for its effortlessly hygienic pump.  Second skin FTW!

#5 – Body shop facial brush
I use this about four times a week with a face exfoliant and it’s been doing my skin wonders.  It’s not only helps to deep clean but also brushes away my dead skin, leaving my face polished and pristine.   I’ve almost become a bit addicted to using it and have to stop myself from over brushing my face.  I think because of its stimulating action, the blood has been circulating well in my face and it helps my skin heal better and makes it glow so I’ve missed the January face blues!

#6 – BarryM Dazzledust in Chocolate
I know there’s three in this picture but of course I’m going to be doing about the chocolate coloured one in the centre.  I am in love with this brown.  It’s the first type of brown that doesn’t wash me out or end up making me look a bit dirty.  I can do a wicked warm and sexy smoky eye with this or use sparingly in the crease for a day time look.  I love BarryM dazzle dust and have many in my collection, this one by far, is one of my favourite!

#7 – NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Yogurt .
Having only a modest two NYX jumbo eye pencils in my collection, I’m not sure where to ever say all of these are fabulous.  Out of the two I have (cottage cheese and yogurt), I adore yogurt because it gives a fantastic base to  a lot of shadow looks let it be a brown smoky, a natural look or under pinks to create a more sea-shell pink/brown tone.  But besides the colour pay off which is amazing, I love it’s stay power and love that it does not crease on me.  These are, by far, way better than those lip and eye crayons from BarryM and I am not on the look out for more of these.  I am still waiting for the famous Milk colour and would really want Black Bean (although it’s ridiculous because they’re both essentially just black and white eyeliners but huge)

#8 – Kent Natural Shine Hair brush
I’ve been raving about these hair brushes to everyone recently because it’s honestly made a difference to the health of my hair.  I not only find blow drying quicker but my hair is a lot shinier and doesn’t fall out half as much.  These work a treat also in brushing out dry shampoo and pulling back into a pony tail.  I’m looking to get the Kent paddle brush and perhaps a bigger round brush.  I’ve been using it on my mum’s frizzy frail hair too and it’s become much stronger.  We’re both sold!

Luckily I’ve lived another month without any horrifying product experiences so there is no ‘worst’ this month.  Join me again next month for another product round up.  I hope you enjoyed this one!
