January 2011 Star Products (January Favorites)

Hey ya'll!!! Its that time again...time to talk about my favorite products for the month of January 2011!

As my blogging journey continues, I feel that I am "getting better" at picking out my monthly favorites! While there are so many products that I love, my picks for "Star Products" of the month are items that I have reached for, and loved, continuously over the past month.

I generally try to choose an item in each category (so, a blush, skincare, etc). But, sometimes I don't have a particular Star Product at the time (so not all categories will have an item listed). I don't want to pick something just to list it. I want true *stars* on this list: total standout products!

See product list after the jump!

January 2011 Star Products!

  • GlyDerm Gentle Cleanser (see my full review!): As I continue to use this more, I love what it is doing for my skin! Great addition to the Skincare Routine!
  • Glyxolix Elite Facial Cream (see my full review!): My dry skin has been loving this cream.
  • Wet n' Wild Lust Palette (see my review!): This has become my fav of the WnW 6 Pan Color Icon Palettes. So pretty!!!
  • e.l.f. Mineral Shadow (Elegant): This beautiful buttery champagne shade is so pretty as a wash of color all over the lid (on its own or paired with a crease color). I have been wearing this frequently and it is just so lovely, and so affordable!!! 
  • Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner (Bold Brown): Love this pencil/gel liner!!! It reminds me of the formula of UD 24/7 Liners, but less expensive. This is a nice shade of brown. Glides on effortlessly and lasts all day with no smudging. My go-to liner of the moment. 
  • NARS Vanilla Concealer: This is an old fav which I have neglected until just recently. It is almost empty and I will certainly repurchase. It provides great under eye coverage in one easy step!
  • Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Body Lotion (Sleep Lavender Vanilla): I keep this by my bedside table and apply every evening. I love the lavender scent. Smells soooo good!!! Plus, I love the "placebo" effect of using a "sleep" lotion before bed.
  • Bath and Body Works Bubble Bath (Moonlight Path): I love taking baths in the winter!!! I have been loving the Moonliight Path scent for an evening bath. The scent is just very calming and rich for cold winter evenings.
  • Clinique Long Last Glosswear SPF 15: I got this full-size GWP while Christmas shopping. I haven't used a Clinique gloss for years, and I am thrilled with the texture of this gloss. It is just a great basic sheer shiny pink gloss with the added bonus of SPF. I keep reaching for this, so I must love it!
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 455 Paparazzi Pink: Revlon lipstick, where have you been all my life, lol!!! Really, you get such great quality with Revlon at a drugstore price! I purchased this lovely purple-pink shade on a whim because it was on clearance at the grocery store. I am so glad I did! It looks very pretty with my skin tone! It was hard to pick a star out of the Revlon lippies that are in heavy rotation for me right now, so stay tuned for an upcoming Revlon review with some of my other faves!
  • Hakken Cuticle Oil (sorry, I forgot to include this in the picture as it is tucked away in my nightstand!): My cuticles have been in rough shape due to the cold weather and all the hand washing I do. I apply this every evening and it helps. Plus, the scent is so yummy.
  • NYC Blushable Creme Sticks: (also not pictured, but had to include when making this list!) I can't stop using these. LOL, no matter what other blush I have. My NYC Blushable Creme sticks are the blushes that I reach for most often. I just love the textures and the shades.

Your favorites are awesome! I've been wanting to try those Prestige liners but it seems like I can't find them?? Maybe I'm looking past them as I know they have other eyeliners on their display. I used to loooove Moonlight Path but now I'm allergic :( I will occasionally smell my mom's just for nostalgic sake haha!

Great favourites. I only recently bought that WnW palette and haven't had a chance to use it yet. I haven't tried any of the other products you talked about but the Bath and Body works aromatherapy sounds great.

Pammy said...

Hey Wendy! Thanks!!! Awh, too bad you are allergic to Moonlight Path!

Thanks Sher! I have been wanting the new Revlon glosses too!

Hey Alicia-You will love that palette! :)


Barbie said...

Lovely list! I love B&BW!

Pammy said...

Thanks Barbie!!! :)

I have that Bath & Body Works scent in a spray, it's such a great scent. That ELF shadow sounds beautiful, I imagine it would be a hard one to take swatch photos of right?

Pammy said...

Hey Tracy! :) oohh, yes, isn't that scent so lovely! Hmm...the shadow would probably show up in a swatch photo as just a "shimmer" (my-lids-but-shimmery) kinda color which wouldnt do it justice. The shimmer is so beautiful! I am planning on doing an elf mineral shadows post, I will put swatches in there. They are all so pretty!

Jennifer said...

i love reading posts like these <3 i hope they will start carrying WnW where I live , lol! am loving their palettes!

Pammy said...

Thanks Jennifer! :)

The Honeyroom said...

Great list! I have had really dry facial skin this winter, so I definitely need to try out the Glyxolix facial cream,

Pammy said...

@The Honeyroom-I hope you like it! It has been a lifesaver for me this month! :)
