January 2013 [Beauty & Fashion] Favorites

It's crazy to me that we are a month into 2013 already! I've filmed my first monthly beauty & fashion favorites video for you, and I've listed the products down below with a link if you can still purchase them online anywhere!

Beauty Favorites
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler (get it here!)
I finally splurged and got the world's best eyelash curler. I don't know what is so different or ingenius about this eyelash curler, but it's incredible. Well worth the $20, I promise you. The only place you can get it is on the Shu Uemura website (linked above).

Benefit 'It's Potent' Eye Cream (get it here!)
I've been on the hunt for a really good eye cream, but I've never really found one I've been in love with. I tried a sample of this eye cream, and I've never seen such instant results. It completely brightened my under eye area, which is my biggest concern because I have genetically inherited dark circles. I don't know how it works as far as wrinkle cream or anything like that, but it definitely hides the darkness.

Dior Diorshow Brow Styler (get it here!)
I love my Anastasia brow powder but I wanted to try something quicker and easier for my lazy mornings (i.e. a pencil). I picked this up and I love it. It's a universal shade, which I don't really get, but it matches my eyebrows. It has a twist up pencil on one side, and a spool on the other. Overall, a great brow pencil!

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara (get it here!)
This is another mascara from the Covergirl Lashblast line, and it's my favorite one thus far. It has a curved brush, and combined with the awesome Lashblast formula and my eyelash curler, it's a knockout.

Bath & Body Works Pink Grapefruit Body Lotion (not available online)
I think this is ultimately my favorite B&BW scent. It's so fragrant & I love that this scent lingers on my clothes after a few hours. If you like grapefruit, I highly recommend it.

MAC Electric Cool Eyeshadow in Superwatt (limited edition)
This eyeshadow was from a limited edition collection & the reason I ended up geting it is because of the consistency. It's a mix between a powder and a cream, and I can't really explain what that's like. The sheen of the eyeshadow is incredible, and it's a perfect all-over lid color.

Fashion Favorites
David Yurman Midnight Melange Stack Ring (get it here!)
This is a ring I've really wanted for a while; it's simple, classy, and elegant, and goes with everything. It's similar to the Tiffany & Co. braided ring, but it's thicker and cable as opposed to thin & braided/twisted. I think I actually like the cable better now that I own and have worn both. Either way, it's beautiful alone or stacked.

Michael Kors Sicily Aviators in Rose Gold (get them here!)
I don't have an aviators face (believe me, I wish I did & I've tried on so many different pairs), but these ones actually look good on me. I tried them on a while ago, but didn't pull the trigger until recently because I wear prescription sunglasses regularly when I drive. But I finally caved; these were too beautiful to pass up.

North Face Venture Jacket in Vibrant Blue (get it here!)
I love these jackets (I have one in yellow and a Columbia one in black) because they are perfect for southern weather. I was looking for an excuse to get a new one, and is selling a bunch of colors for $69.99 (from $99.99), including the blue one I got. Now that I have a blue one & a yellow one, I'm all set for Michigan football games in the fall!

Manolo Blahnik 'Something Blue Carrie Shoes' (no longer for sale online; available at Bergdorf Goodman)
There is no explanation necessary for these. They are and have been my dream shoes for the last 3-4 years (since the movie came out, I immediately went home and googled them), and they're finally stopping production of them. So when I was in New York at Bergdorf's and tried them on, I couldn't walk away from them.

So those are my January 2013 beauty & fashion favorites! What are some of your favorites from the beginning of 2013? Let me know in a comment below!
