Hello my lovelies,
Well hasn’t February just flown by!? In my personal life February has been an awful month I battled with pneumonia, spent weeks in bed not able to do anything for myself. Spent valentines in hospital with my boyfriend, so romantic! Luckily I am now on the mend and actually the past week or so I have trying to do as much as I can without pushing myself too much. Why is it though when you are feeling unwell that your skin decides that it’s time for your skin to have a meltdown too, seriously!
Make Up Forever – Step One Radiant Primer see here
This is one of my first ever Make Up Forever products and I am seriously impressed. It’s a cream like consistency which sinks into the skin effortlessly. Although I’m not really one for radiance as this can just make the oils in my skin worse this has actually made me look healthy. When you are unwell you do not ‘have a glow about you’ in fact it’s the complete opposite and this has helped me feel more human. Keeping my foundation on I feel as though it is pretty average as primers go but radiance glow wise, complete live saver!
Stila – Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Bronzed Ball see here
So this was mentioned in my Cult Beauty Haul earlier in the year and this was the product I was most excited for. This would of been in my January Favourites however as much as I loved it from one application I couldn’t write how much I love it, it isn’t fair. Although for the amount of pigmentation and glitter from this little baby it’s hard to find occasions to wear this however I now wear it whenever I please. I want to wear it all the time. This is the best thing I have put on my eyelids for a long time. It has changed my life. These are complete glitter goals and the shade range is so impressive. If you like glitter, go pick one of these NOW.
Zoeva – Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette see here
I know I have mentioned this in favourites posts before, I just love it so much. I love the colours in the palette, they blend beautifully and the pigmentation is pretty impressive. I have been creating a look recently which involves the shades: Substitute for Love, Freshly Toasted, Warm Notes and Pure Ganache. It creates the perfect soft cranberry smokey eye. I have had to consciously stop using this and bring out some other palettes as I am using this so much. Zoeva eyeshadow palettes are amazing, I have a couple now and I am still deciding on what one I want next, too many decisions!
Nip + Fab – Glycolic Fix Overnight Purifying Gel see here
I recently picked this up which I mentioned here and I was unsure if I was going to like this or not with it being an overnight mask and the whole sticky face vibe. I will have to eat my words a little because I am seriously impressed. I started using this when my skin started to just get worse and worse and nothing else was working. I popped this on after my skincare and yes it is fairly sticky but after around 5 minutes it goes, the product is sunk into the skin. Impressive right? I really think this has been a product that has helped my skin, my pores are reduced and my skin looks all round better! I will be doing a full review on this so keep your eyes peeled.
Estee Lauder – Pore Purifying Cleansing Jelly see here
Another skincare savior and recent purchase. I have been using this as my second cleanser and my goodness my skin loves this. It’s quite strange to apply as it’s fairly sticky for a cleanser but once you work it into the skin I have no idea what happens but my pores instantly look so much better. The amount of blackheads I find on my face has significantly reduced and all round my skin looks so much better. I definitely feel as though it’s down to this baby along with the Nip+Fab overnight ask. Very happy bunny and so pleased I picked this up.
Katy Perry – Killer Queen Perfume see here
It’s not very often I put a perfume into the mix in my favourites but here I am with quite a crazy perfume. By no means am I a Katy Perry mega fan. Years ago I was given this for a birthday/Christmas at the end of the day a scent is a scent right? I also love the bottle however it takes up a fair bit of room in my perfume collection! I started using this when I had a perfume shake up and I fell completely in love with this all over again. Although I would say it is on the sweeter side of the scale, at the same time it’s definitely an ‘adult’ scent. I don’t know if that makes sense but it’s not a silly girly scent it has some other notes to it I just can’t pick out what they are. If you ever see this in a shop, smell it weirdly it’s blooming lovely. Its the only scent I have worn this month I just am a little addicted.
That’s all folks! Let me know if you have tried any of these products and what your thoughts are on them. Hope you had a lovely February.
