My January Favourites

These are my current favourite beauty products of the month. #favourites #hair #beauty #makeup #skincare

OGX® Penetrating Light Hair Oil
OGX® Penetrating Light Hair Oil

This stuff is amazing. I got it on special for $10 from Countdown and it's fabulous. I apply it from midway down my hair to the ends after showering and let my hair air dry and I makes my hair super #soft and #healthy looking. It smells fresh and does a fabulous job, especially for the wonderful price. #bargain

OGX® Coconut Water Shampoo
OGX® Coconut Water Shampoo

Both the Coconut water shampoo and conditioner are my new holy grail hair care system. Not since the Tigi Dumb Blonde product range have I repurchased and shampoo and conditioner. (And that was only because I was 13 and love the name of it.) I'm pretty fickle when it comes to shampoo and conditioner as I just love to try all the new ones coming out (and I'm a sucker for believing all the lofty claims on the back of the bottle.) BUT I have bought this stuff 3 times now. THREE! It lasts for ages, smells like summer, makes my #dry and #brittle #hair look like I actually styled it when really I just Beyonce'd it. #IWokeUpLikeThis. Also if you wait until they're on special, you can get them for like $14 each from Countdown. #bargain

Algenist Splash Absolute Hydration Replenishing Sleeping Pack
Algenist Splash Absolute Hydration Replenishing Sleeping Pack

This is my holy grail nighttime moisturiser. I use it after washing my face at night by applying it to my face and neck. It is so gentle on my #sensitive #dry skin, smells AMAZING and leaves my skin feeling so #hydrated and #fresh. I highly recommend it, yes it's a bit pricey at $65 NZD, but it's so worth it. It's permanently in my favourites list on sephora.nz

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara
Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

Ok, so I own both of these. They are both amazing. I first bought the original Better Than Sex Mascara from Mecca Cosmetica in Melbourne and was so excited to try it. The packaging is SO lush! A beautiful light metallic pink, and so weighty making it really feel like a luxury item. The wand looked amazing and I was so set to go. Aaaaand then I HATED IT! It just didn't look right, was hard to use and I was getting seriously PO'd, threw it in a draw and went off to work in a huff. (Very dramatic I know, but I hate wasting money on mediocre products.) But, a few days after my slightly pathetic hissy fit, I opened the draw and decided *graciously* to give it another shot. Thank God I did. I don't know what I was doing the first time, but this time it made my lashes look stunning! I think I was forcing it to do something it didn't want to do and it was like; 'Sarah, stop girl, just let me sort this shit out on my own.' So I did, and it did. I bought the waterproof one to continue my love affair with the range and it did not disappoint, the packaging is ADORABLE, with the 3D element of water drops on the metal tube and it holds a curl beautifully. Give this Mascara a shot, hopefully you'll realise its beauty a lot sooner than I did. #waterproof #mascara #toofaced

Soap & Glory Clean On Me(TM) Creamy Moisture Shower Gel 16.2 oz
Soap & Glory Clean On Me(TM) Creamy Moisture Shower Gel 16.2 oz

I regularly alternate sing-reading the label as "Lean on me" by Bill Withers and "Take on me" by A-ha when taking a shower these days. Both options make for a fun way of jooshing... zhushing?* up a usually mundane task. *double checked with Google, both are perfectly acceptable according to Urban Dictionary. Anyway... I have #Psoriasis which makes my skin super sensitive to #scented body products and basically life in general, so it is of huge joy to me that I can use this product with no horrible reactions. It smells AMAZING, and feels great. Highly recommend, I buy mine from meccabeauty.co.nz.

KLEANCOLOR Madly Matte Lip Gloss - Mauve Orchid
KLEANCOLOR Madly Matte Lip Gloss - Mauve Orchid

Ok so for some reason the colour I love isn't showing up, but it's called CLAY and it is in the 'Mauves' section of the Madly #Matte #Lipgloss range. CLAY is so fabulous, it's like a lovely dusty, #thistle colour (which sounds like it'd be uncomfortable and prickly to wear, but don't worry that's just my ingenious use of adjectives.) The formula is long lasting, thick- but not gross thick, and easy to apply. I bought this from shopmissa.com, which is a dangerous site to visit at 1.56am whilst in bed, mentally making space in your makeup vanity for more crap. Everything is $1. YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT, ONE DOLLAR! Well $1.32 (give or take a few cents depending on the strength of the mighty NZ Dollar.) Visit, add a few face masks to your cart and fly like the wind!

MAC Lipstick
MAC Lipstick

MAC's lipstick in the Shade SNOB is a light neutral #pink, with a highly #pigmented #satin formula. Not only is the name fun and makes me feel like a rich, hoity-toity bitch, the colour is wonderful. A dear friend gifted me my first ever MAC lipstick in the colour 'Playing Koi' and I instantly fell in love with it. However because all good things must apparently come to an end, it was discontinued. Since then, I have been on the search for a versatile pink to wear when I want to look like a #natural #beauty... *cough* Anyway I think I've found it in SNOB. I get so may complements from people every time I wear it, and as we all know, approval of our physical appearance from complete strangers IS all that we should be striving for in life. *cough* I seriously should get this cough checked out...

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick

YAAAS QUEEN SLAY! Ooofh do I love this colour!! No Tea, No Shade is one of Jeffree's newest #metallic #liquidlipstick's and girl it does not disappoint. Love him or hate him (I'm on the former team) he sure does make a #quality product. The colour is so unique and fun and I love the name, it makes me feel like I give no F@#K's about what anyone thinks, even though I really do. Try it, just... try it!

tarte Tartelette in Bloom Clay Palette
tarte Tartelette in Bloom Clay Palette

Such an amazing palette full of beautiful colours! The matte shades that make up the bulk of the palette blend like a dream, and the shimmer shadows are very delicate and add some interesting dimension. Seriously it is so easy to create a lovely eye look with this. Aaand as if all that wasn't enough... the shadows SMELL beautiful too!
