January 57th 2020… Isn’t it lasting foreverrrr?
January is a confusing time of year, we’re caught between the blues of Christmas being over and the optimism of ‘new year, new you’. The month even consists of Blue Monday which is given to a day in January that is claimed to be the most depressing day of the year.
We all know that the little things can mean the most when you’re feeling a little low, so we have put together some little beauty hacks that can help lift your spirits over this last push in January.

NYX Cosmetics have released their new range of lip butter glosses. With a buttery soft and silky-smooth formula, the decadent Butter Gloss is now available in 12 more sumptuous shades! Each glossy colour delivers sheer to medium coverage that melts onto your lips and is never sticky – leaving your lips soft, supple and kissable. All this and more for an affordable £5.50 each!
