January Beauty Favourites

january beauty favourites ruth crilly

Ah, here we are again. Monthly favourites. Apologies in advance; I have been on a bit of a beauty “hiatus” this month, partly because I spent the first two weeks of it watching The Good Wife and partly because I still haven’t properly sorted out my beauty room. I don’t know where anything is and I also seem to have mislaid a box of foundations during our house-move. (If any east Londoners find a huge box filled with approximately eighty bottles of foundation, some so new that they’re still top secret and some so old that they may have grown hair, please do let me know. There’s no monetary reward (I’m almost glad not to have to test them) but I will take you for a glass of wine if you turn in the goods!)

Anyway, back to the point: a beauty hiatus means that my faves are a bit thin on the ground this month. A few of the things (Origins concealer, No7 Tinted Moisturiser and Illamasqua highlighter) have actually been knocking about in my makeup collection for ages, but I don’t see the harm in revisiting trusted old favourites. (In fact, perhaps they’re more significant than new finds. There’s definitely something noteworthy about products that pop up again and again, don’t you think?)

If you want to skip the video then there’s a list of items below, along with the winner of the 200,000 Subscribers giveaway and a couple of other links to things that I mentioned at the start of the vid. If you’re reading this via email then please click here.
