February Favourites


February Favourites




Thanks to 6 months of getting paid incorrectly at work, I've been extremely skint this month. So, my favourites this month are all items I've been using for a little while. 

February Favourites

After posting about my rekindled love for the Make Up Academy Palettes (here), I've been using them pretty much daily! The colours are so bright and pigmented and give the perfect payoff for a smoky eye, so I've been trying to wear different shades every day to get the most out of them.

February Favourites

The next two products I've been using almost daily are cheek products - Bobbi Browns Shimmer Brick (review) and MACs Soft and Gentle Skinfinish. I won't go into too much detail about the Shimmer Brick since I only just wrote about it, but I love the soft shimmer and colour it gives to the cheeks. MAC's Soft and Gentle gives off a lot more shimmer, but it looks so natural that I've been wearing it on its own as well as on the cheekbones on top of which blush I decide to wear.

February Favourites

Another product from MAC that I couldn't live without it the Brow Gel in Dirty Blonde. My brows are so fair that I tint them every few weeks, but recently I've noticed the seem a little more sparse in areas so need filled in a lot more. It took a while to get the technique of a gel down to pat, but now I'm in love as I can have my eyebrows darker and more defined when I have a dramatic eye look, or softer and blended when I have a more every day look. My Scandaleyes Kohl Liner is starting to get a little short - it's amazing for giving that soft smoky look, without rubbing off or needing topped up during the day. It's super soft and smudgeable, without ending up halfway across my face!

February Favourites

The last item in my February Favourites is the only non make up item. I dropped my iPhone 5 down the toilet by accident and fucked the SIM card, but since I hated O2 anyway I decided to pay out of my contract (I being my mum, I'll pay you back I promise!) and get an iPhone 6 on EE instead. So obivously I needed some new transparent phone cases! I decided to re buy the Ariel and Alice ones I have before, as well as a Minion case and this Stitch case. I mean, how could I resist when he's eating the Apple?!

    1. They really are, as I said it's the perfect amount of shimmer!

      You're on blogger right? It's one of the widgets from the layout page! Although the way mine is layed out is done by the pipdig template I have :) Hope that helps!
