Hi Lovelies, hope you're all okay, I've been feeling really rubbish had a throat infection and a awful cold so i've been a bit down in the dumps over the last few days but hey ho! I'm quite happy too see the end of Feb to be honest with you, it's never really been a month i've loved that much and i'm hoping that March will bring us some much needed sunshine and some signs of spring. Anyway, I have quite a lot of stuff to show you so I shall get on with what my favourite products of February were.
Mac Studio Fix Foundation NC15 - I love this foundation, this and the Rimmel Wake me up foundation are definitely my two holy grail make up products and I love them both a lot, for days when it's rubbish weather I find that I want a bit more coverage and the Mac Studio Fix gives amazing flawless coverage and lasts all day. It's not too pricey for a 'high end' foundation either which is quite good it retails at £20.50 I think! Anyway I just really enjoy using this foundation and for a night out I wouldn't really choose anything else. I really want to try the Mac Studio Sculpt foundation next so please leave me your opinions in the comments if you've tried that one too!
Maybelline the Rocket Mascara - Love this! I have a massive love affair with Maybelline Mascara's and to be honest i'm not really someone who likes many of maybelline's products. Firstly I love this mascara because it has a massive brush and it really does lengthen my lashes and it holds a curl in my lashes too which is good because my lashes are normally dead straight. I'm not sure that this is the most voluminousness mascara (which it claims to be) but you can definitely build it up depending on how much va-va-voom you want your lashes to have! I really like this product and I think it's a really good drugstore mascara.
Chanel Bronze Universal - EEEE, i love this so much! This is the first Chanel product I've ever tried and I love it, I was eyeing up this product for so long and then I got it and I've just fallen in love with it, it looks so natural on the skin, blends flawlessly, smells amazing and is pretty much everything you want in a bronzer, it lasts so long, you only need a tiny bit and it's just a super product! I couldn't rave about this particular product enough & this is definitely my stand out product of the month, it is gorgeous.
No 7 Nail Varnishes - I was looking through my nail varnish collection the other day and I saw that I actually own quite a few of the Boots No 7 Nail Varnishes, I think I've had a few gift sets with them in and I used to purchase them quite often when I could get them for £2.00 when I had a No.7 £5.00 off voucher, so anyway I was looking for some more bright colors for the spring months and I have been really loving this bright light blue & dark navy blue by No.7 and I've been wearing them quite a bit, they are long lasting, super easy to apply & very opaque coverage and I just think they're really good quality and they have a really nice shade range. You can read a full review here.
Elf Blush - Flirt - I've been cracking out my old Elf products recently and have vowed to use them more otherwise I think that they should go to a new, more-loved home, this has been a product I've been really loving, it's a cream blush in such a gorgeous pink color, it's quite bright but I apply it with a stippling brush to get more of a natural blush color and I find that this compliments the Chanel Bronze Universal really well. I would say that this color will look gorgeous in the summer months with more of a tan, but I really like the formula it's almost a bit like play-dough consistency.
Charlie Pink Perfume - I got this in a cheap gift set just after Christmas and thought i'd just use this as a perfume for work or around the house because I go through perfumes so quickly and I wanted to save some of my more expensive scents but in actual fact I find this one smells sooo amazing and it's so cheap. It smells quite sweet which is my preference and is a mix of red fruits, tangerine and vanilla which just smells gorgeous. You can pick a 30ml bottle of this up for about £5.00 or you can get the spray perfume but I just think it smells really elegant and feminine.
Urban Decay the Glinda Palette - I won't talk about this product too much because I did a full review on my blog of it nearer the start of the month but I've been using this palette loads and I love how the shades are so individual but actually quite wearable considering they're not really neutral shades. I just really love Urban Decay and their eye shadows are second to none in terms of quality. If you want to read a full review of this product you can find it here.
Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Body Milk - I don't think I could actually do a monthly favorites without including one of the many products that I love from Soap and Glory I actually have a whole drawer full of their products because I am that addicted and this has been the one I've been loving the most this month. This is just a body milk that is to be used after you've showered, and I find it moisturizes the skin really well and keeps my skin smooth and it also smells really good. It says it a mix of almond, cocoa, yogurt oat and honey and I just think I smell like a cake or a cookie and I literally smell good enough to eat which is a bit weird but I really like it haha and I just love how moisturizing it is! You can read a full review here.
Anyway I hope you all enjoyed my monthly favorites, please let me know what you've been loving this month and I will speak to you all soon! :) xxx
