January Favourites

How I missed writing up my monthly favourites. If you’ve read my previous post, you’d know where I’d been for the past few months.

Anyway, my January was quite refreshing. I’m excited to share these new stuff that I’ve been loving last month. So, here they are:

  • NYX Lingerie Lip Matte. I bought the right one (Exotic) at first and I loved it instantly. So, shortly after, I bought the left one (Cabaret Show). They’re long lasting, feel smooth on your lips and affordable.

  • The latest Coach perfume for men. I bought this because I fell in love with it at first smell (from the tester). I asked my sister if it would be too weird to smell woody and musky? She said, it would probably just seems like I’m wearing my boyfriend’s top or coat or scarf. Oh well, that could work. Becauseย believe it or not, I didn’t buy it with an intention to give it to a man. Yup, totally keeping this whole bottle to myself. (I actually bought the one for women as well, but uh, I still love this one more)

  • Carmex lip balm in cherry flavour. Ohhh, the cherry smells sooo gorgeous! Anyone else a fan of Carmex?

  • E.l.f blusher in Brick Red. The story was that my sister wanted to try E.l.f cosmetics and I didn’t know what to buy (just so it’d be enough to get free shipping. Aha, yeah) but then I saw this blusher for only ยฃ3 (I know right), so I thought why not? Turned out, it’s actually way better than the MAC one that I’ve been using. It’s highly pigmented and actually looks like I have blusher on my cheeks, which I loveee.
  • Poetry book – Love Her Wild by Atticus. I don’t know since when did I start loving poetry, but I saw this book in Urban Outfitters and I had to get it.


  • The Crown has been keeping me entertained. A recommendation for a fan of history like me.

So, how was your first month of 2018?

Thank you for checking out this post.
May you have happy thoughts always,

    Everyone seems to love ‘Lip Lingerie’ but I bought one before and the formula was horrible! I don’t know if I just had a bad batch though because I see so many people talk about how good they are that I might give them another try! The NYX liquid suede are nice too!

      Aw noo, I’m sorry you’ve had a bad experience from it. You should have it refunded! But yes, you should give it another try because honestly, I’m picky when it comes to lip matte but I have to say NYX Lingerie is one of the best ones out there. I did check out the Suede range as well, but there are no colours that suits me sadly. Thank you for commenting ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

      • foundationsandfairytales February 7, 2018 / 9:06 pm

        I’ve had it so long now I wouldn’t get a refund and I never thought about it at the time! I’ll definitely get a different one to try and aw that’s a shame because they do some really nice ones! I have a metallic one that I love!xx

        • captaineverland February 11, 2018 / 8:48 pm

          Ooh, I don’t know if I’d pull off the metallic ones but I’d love to try. Hehe xx

    Carmex is a must for me! Itโ€™s such a good lip balm for chapped lips. That nyx lipstick looks so nice! Iโ€™m going to look into that book for sure

    • captaineverland February 7, 2018 / 9:13 pm

      Yes, Carmex is indeed! I hope you’d get to try the NYX Lingerie lip matte ๐Ÿ™‚ x

      Everyone has their own opinions but yes, you should try it as well. Aha, glad to hear I’m not alone. I mean, there are men using women’s perfumes too, right? Thank you for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚ x
