January Monthly Favourites ft. Real Techniques and Bobbi Brown!

Half were essentials and replacement items!  Here they are, in all their glory, my favourites of the month… Featured in this post: Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil …

And which are not so well-loved, falling a bit short? Note: I don’t own a huge array of brushes (across different brands) so I won’t be able to compare these to others. However, that could be for the better! I mainly own Real Techniques and EcoTools.  Featured in this post: Expert Face Brush Blush Brush Powder Brush Core Collection Starter Set The brushes are colour-coded which to my knowledge, is unique to the brand.
