January Favorites!

My white holiday lights may still be hanging up in my room and adding a touch of cozy flair, but with January nearly gone and past, there's no better time to gear up for a few (quite petite, actually) big ol' favorites coming your way. P.S. a bit of unnecessary info, but I was thiiis close to typing "favoUrite" in that little title box...a bit too much UK blog perusing...

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
Yup! A new base favorite landed at moi casa (bilingual, eh?) My everyday base of choice, Miss Mercier has got some big *bleep* wishlists with her name on it in my book. For more info, check out my review here.

NARS Blush in Deep Throat
First up, excuse the (perhaps) prolific language in that title. Thank you so much NARS - you practically turned my beauty blog into porn. Regardless, I haven't touched this blush in ages....perhaps centuries. Luckily, a bit of a clear out and this peachy pink beaute landed a prime place right in my everyday makeup bag. The perfect subtle pink tone that tends to embrace my naturally rosy flush, but in the up-most flattering way. 

Now onto the skincare...as for my recent obsession.

Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream
Although I may have done a bit too much research, I still am technically a skincare noob. Although this eye cream does leave many gaps in the cooling category, it is really great in the mornings as an eye brightener. With tiny reflecting particles, it's like concealer....but in an eye cream.

Origins Super Spot Remover
If you need a spot treatment, then this Origins one has got your back! More often than not, a pesky little red spot pops up on my face. Before I cry myself a river and bring out the old "my stomach hurts" trick (okay, maybe an exaggeration), a bit of hi-impact salicylic acid from this small little tube and "spot be gone!" (my words exactly.)

Origins Dr. Weil Mega-Bright Serum
A bit too many trips to the Origins counter and your monthly favorites will look like this too. If you read my rambly ol' Winter Skincare Routine post, then you'll know that I suffer from chicken pox. Not really, but make them a bit smaller, concentrate them just on my forehead, add a little "post acne" info and you get the jist. A bit too graphic per say, but you get the idea. I finally decided enough with all the concealer and covering and off I went zooming on another Origins trip. Enough with the ramble (perhaps a post if you're really persistent), but about a month with this serum day and night and my "chicken pox" are pretty much all gone. AMEN!

Bumble and bumble Surf Spray
Well, this is the first time that a hair product has graced the ground on a SugartoGlitter favorites post. Rightfully so, because you got another big *bleep* favorite here! You could say that my stick straight hair does leave some desirous, but non moi. Beachy, sexy...no time! I can get halfway there though with this subtle beach babe! A beauty editor favorite, the Bumble and bumble Surf Spray adds a nice *subtle* texture to the hair without making it feel dirty. It leaves a bit to be desired in the fragrance department, but overall, an editor favorite that is now mine too.

Enough with the chit chat! Off I go to do a bit of Valentine's Day chocolate shopping...for myself that is! I wish you all the best for February and (as always) leave your favorite products of the month below!
