Just a quick post, for today, sharing with you my Latest in Beauty picks for January 2018. I get the 3 product subscription, for LiB, but you can pay a little more and pick 6 or 9 products, depending on what you want. I love that you can chose what you get for this service, it makes a nice change from getting disappointing products in certain boxes, though of course you do lose the surprise element with these. You can see my December subscription post here.
And here’s my selection for January 2018. I always find myself drawn towards the makeup items, so they won’t be any surprise, and I’ve become much better at remembering to do fast masks, now, so am really enjoying using them more often. The 5th Season ‘Strawberry & Yogurt’ snacks were the added extra item for this months, I seem to have lost them though so can’t tell you how nice they are – They remind me of the smoothie melt snacks that my toddler gets, though, so I expect they’ll be lovely.
I went for the Masque Bar mask because I hear so many good things about this brand so any opportunity to try something from them is good. The ‘Pore refining’ mask was the one that found its way in to my sub, this month, simply because if anything promises to help my pores then I want to find out if it can, my pores are awful!
A sample of the Lancome ‘Hypnose’ mascara was a welcome surprise from the list of options. There’s often some great skincare brands on the Latest in Beauty list but, normally, the cosmetics are more likely to be full sized high street stuff. Now, admittedly, full sized high street stuff makes me very happy, but it was nice to see this one and I haven’t tried this mascara for a few years so I wanted to give it another go.
I really like the brand Collection so the blush sticks caught my attention and I went for the shade ‘Tickled Pink’ as it looked to be the more subtle option – There was also a more orange shade and a more plummy shade. If the deeper shade is still available next month I might pick it up but, either way, the shade I got this month is beautiful and I’m looking forward to giving it a go. I used to wear a lot of cream blushes but I haven’t for a while.
