January Beauty Favorites

January 2014 Beauty Favorites feat. Hourglass, GlamGlow, theBalm, Revlon, Tocca, MAC, NARS, LORAC, and more!

It’s that time again… beauty favorites time! It seems that it was just yesterday that I was doing my year-end favorites for 2013! It’s crazy how quickly January has flown by. But it puts us another month closer to spring (warmth!!!), so hey, I’m not complaining!

I realize that this post is a little late, but the video itself was uploaded to my YouTube channel last week, so make sure you’re subscribed to see new videos when they become available!

Check out the video below, or on my YouTube channel, for my January beauty favorites! I also included a couple of random faves at the end, so let me know if you’re interested in seeing those each month or if you’d prefer that I keep things solely related to beauty!

      I am SO jealous that you got to get away! I need a vacation!

  • Alison Lumbatis

    Love your videos so much! I tested out the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm a few days ago and really liked the feel of it.

    • http://www.glossyblonde.com/ Niki Caron

      I do too! It wears really comfortably!

  • http://www.alwaysmaylee.com/ Always Maylee

    I think I want to try the Clinique shadow tint! I also love your lip color. I need a lipstick in a similar color, maybe I will try that MAC one! Seriously I need so much help with my makeup, haha. Every time I go into sephora I get overwhelmed.

    xo, Yi-chia

    • http://www.glossyblonde.com/ Niki Caron

      Thanks Yi-chia! The lipstick I’m wearing in the video is one of the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms – the shade is Elusive! You can get it at the drugstore! The MAC one I mentioned in the video is a great one, too! Seriously you can’t go wrong with a “my lips but better” shade! I’m always happy to be a shopping buddy if you’d like ;)
