Hey gang and happy Wednesday! Hope your day went well, mine was a bit of a shit show considering it was a day after a major holiday, I work in grooming at a dog kennel, and of course, everyone wants their dogs clean after staying in a kennel. Groomers are definitely taken advantage of and not appreciate, well in general, but especially around this time. But who cares, this is my happy place and I am here to chat about makeup! Specifically my makeup basket for January! I’m super excited about this month’s basket and if you are curious to see what I’m putting in there, well keep on reading!

Let’s start out with what palette I’m going to be pulling in this month and that is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette. I’ve played with it a few times but haven’t really gotten a good feel of it. I want to really play with all of the shimmer/metallic shades, try out some new techniques, and hopefully by the end of the month give my full thoughts on it.
For foundation, since I’m no longer working on a project pan, I wanted to play around with other foundations in my collection. So I thought I would pull in the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation. I’ve worn it once but didn’t really pay attention to anything, wear time, if it broke down or not. I would like to do a review with a full days wear test for Friday, play around with it for the rest of the month, and then do an updated review at the end as well. We shall see!
As of late, I’ve been really trying to expand my blush collection so to utilize my growing blush stash, I thought I would pull in my Milani Baked Blush in Rose D’oro and my Wet N Wild ColorIcon Blush in Pearlescent Pink. Both are more glowy blushes. The older and more experienced I’ve become with wearing makeup, the more into a more overall glowy look.
Highlight, highlight, highlight. Good grief, I am definitely not short of highlighters in my collection. For this month I really want to pull in my Wet N Wild ColorIcon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana, as well as Black Moon Cosmetics Moonlighter in Centipede.
For lips, I genuinely am really good at working through and rotating my lipsticks. However, I have been neglecting a couple that I would like to incorporate more of this month. Those being my Kat Von D Beauty Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick in Bow N Arrow and my Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Psychic Medium.
That’s it, gang. I want to start making my makeup baskets more refined like this. I do love switching up products often, however, this is more of a guide on a few products that I would like to incorporate more than others because they are either new or have been neglected a bit. I’d love to hear about what products you are working on this month or I’d love to hear if you have used these products, what your thought on them was. I think that’ll do it for me today gang. I hope you have a great rest of your night, or day depending on where you are, and I will catch you back here Friday!
