Hi Lifestylers!  Here are my five favorite beauty products that I’ve been loving in January.  Make sure to comment below and tell me your beauty faves! XOXO Sarah!

1. NYX Cosmetics Lip Liner

NYX Cosmetics Lip Liner The Lifestyle Reporter

I recently bought my first NYX Cosmetics lip liner and I have to say, it lasts a long time, and the color was absolutely gorgeous.  It cost me only $3.49!  I love their brown tone colors, including “Natural,” “Peek-a-boo Natural” and “Mauve.”  It’s also a cruelty free item so definitely something I will buy again in the future.  There are so many pretty colors, and soo much cheaper than MAC!  You can still get the Kylie Jenner lip colors for a fraction of the cost!

2. OPI Matte Top Coat

OPI Matte Top Coat The Lifestyle Reporter

I love matte nails and OPI’s matte top coat does the job!  Simply paint your nails any color you like, let it dry, and then paint one to two coats with the matte top coat.  My favorite thing to do is paint my nails matte black!  The matte top coat usually lasts about 1 to 2 weeks depending on how careful I am!!  It costs $9.50 at Ulta.

3. KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray

KMS California Hair Play Makeover Spray The Lifestyle Reporter

The KMS Dry Shampoo has a yummy scent and it gives your hair amazing volume!  You just spray it in your hair and it’s not hard to brush it into your hair.  It’s also not too expensive and lasts a while.  This is a great product if you have oily hair or if you just want to have more volume.  It can be purchased at Ulta for $19.99 (for a 6.7 oz. bottle)

4. Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream

Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream

While in Utah, this lotion was an absolute lifesaver!  By the end of the day, my hands were always so dry and cracking.  At bedtime I would put this lotion on, and by morning, my hands were so smooth! It also smells great–like apricots and vanilla.  I’ve had mine for over a year and it still does the job.  I throw it in my purse and use when my hands are super dry.  It can be purchased at Sephora for $22 USD (but currently out of stock 🙁 ).

5. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Sugar Rosé 

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 Rose Tint Lip Balm The Lifestyle Reporter

This stuff works wonders on chapped lips! It makes my lips silky soft!!  I like to put it on at bedtime because when I wake up, my lips become so soft and its makes putting on lip liner a lot easier.  I love this color, the red tint, if you just want to wear a red look out but don’t want to commit to red lipstick.  It also has SPF which is very important!!  It’s pricey–$22.50 for one, but they do last a long time.
