This month, we’ve discovered these beauty products and couldn’t wait to share them with you. From eyebrow tools that are real game-changers to innovative hair care products that are sure to be restocked in your cabinets monthly. Gimmick’s aside; these are our top January beauty obsessions.
We don’t leave the house without applying Patrick Ta’s Major Brow Lamination Gel. This cult favorite is typically sold out at Sephora, so we stockpile this item when it’s available. If you enjoy the look of laminated brows but are afraid to commit, we recommend trying Patrick Ta’s Brow lamination gel instead. It’s free of parabens and is vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free- yes, please!
An old-school product with many uses, where do we sign up? Smith’s Rosebud Salve has been around since dinosaurs roamed the earth. Kidding- but the original formula was created in 1892 and patented in 1908, making it a classic. This mini moisturizing balm can save chapped lips and combat areas of dry skin with ingredients like cottonseed oil.
Urban Decay nailed their latest palette launch, Naked Wild West. With twelve desert-inspired eyeshadows that include creamy mattes, metallics, and shimmers, this palette is every makeup lover’s dream. One of our favorite hues from the palette is Bud. This shade looks like a turquoise blue that is oh so gorgeous. We’ve seen blue shadows on IT girls like model Sydney Harper shown in our gallery cover photo. Yes, we’ll admit we’ve been influenced and can’t wait to be bold and cover our eyelids in shades of blue.
Cleansing our faces morning and night is like the rules of feminism (said in our best Gretchen Weiner voice). Trust us; we get it! Doing a seven-step skincare routine may not be for you, but have you considered adding a toner to your regime? Freck Beauty’s Cactus Water Cleansing Lactic Acid toner is our current go-to. It’s unscented and is mild enough to use daily morning and night. Ingredients like lactic acid and cactus water will help eliminate any dead skin and visibly brighten your complexion.
Move over aerosal dry shampoo’s there’s a new eco-friendly oil reducing liner sheet that’s coming to take your place. Not to be confused with a dryer sheet, Mira’s brush liners will keep your hair brush clean, limit static frizz, and keep second day hair fresh.
We know… this is the second brow product to make it on our list. However, having a proper brow game can make or break your face, and we don’t want to catch you guys walking around with busted eyebrows. That’s why Revolution Beauty’s Create Soap Styler Brow Brush came in at number six on our list. We usually reach for this tool when we’ve run out of brown gels or liners to fill in and fluff our brows. Wet the angled brush head, then rub it on a soap bar and brush through your brows in upwards motions. Since applying a thin layer of soap to your brows will likely not clog your hair follicles, you’ll eventually give your brows a chance to fill in.
Jade Roller, that’s so passe. Have you heard of a Gua Sha Tool? Gua Sha massage tools can be used all over the body but are beneficial when used on the face. This tool helps improve circulation and supports lymphatic drainage. The technique was used in Chinese medicine centuries ago. But before you start carving away at your cheekbones and undereye bags, we recommend watching this video to understand how to correctly use a Gua Sha on your face.
