Hello! February has started so we all know what's about to pop up…hundreds of favourites posts and videos, gah I love them ^_^
This month has been a good ‘un for favourites because although I have been shopping my stash a lot, I’ve also discovered some pretty wonderful new products from my spending during the sales in December and I’m excited to share them today!
E.L.F Lip Exfoliator – This is something I didn’t love when I first tried it because I found it a little tricky to use. It’s essentially a lip exfoliator scrub in a more solid form than one you could make yourself (in a lipstick bullet). But since winter my lips have been SUPER chapped, so I felt I really needed to try and put this to use. After a few uses I like this a lot! You just rub a little over the lips and then gently buff away the dry skin with either your finger or a soft toothbrush. This makes the world of difference because you have get instantly softer lips, which are easier to care for and of course look better with any lip product!
Rimmel Nude Liner – This pencil has popped up on my blog soooo many times! But in the month of January especially, with a tonne of deadlines and lack of sleep it has been such a life saver. It’s a little crazy how much difference a simple nude liner can change your whole face, and the fact that this one is creamy and opaque makes it a winner!
Soap & Glory Butter Yourself Moisture Lotion – I picked this up on a whim, and I’m so glad I did! I have previously used the body butter and whilst I can’t fault it, I’ve found this lotion a lot quicker to use. It sinks into the skin quickly, but still feels moisturising enough. It’s not a grown up scent, but at the same time I find its a little different from the typical S&G scents –a little more mandarin? adore it!!
E-bay Brush (LINK TO REVIEW HERE) - This brush has been wonderful, and I really have appreciated it a lot more in the last two weeks. It not only works fairly well for contouring, but I feel like it applies colour in a beautiful way! Especially pigmented blushers, because it really adds colour in exactly the place you want rather than going all over the cheeks and making you look like a clown! On top of that, its great for highlight, again because of it’s precision. I couldn’t have asked for more considering I paid £1.99!
Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade ‘Chocolate’ - The newest product from their line, I’ve had a fair amount of time to play with this brow stuff and am excited to write a full review. When I first used it I was unsure if the colour and whole concept was right for me, but now that I’ve been using it for a few weeks I really love it! I can create natural brows, more dramatic brows, blend it easily and it really lasts all day! An essential? Not by any means, but I have adored my brows since picking this up, fail-proof once you get the hang of using it ^_^
Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Perfume - OK BEFORE Y’ALL JUDGE ME this celebrity perfume smells lovely! I know Minaj hardly has the best rep, nor do celebrity perfumes, but the way I see it is I’m 18, and if I like a certain smell and it doesn’t cost £70 a bottle I’ll wear it! I really hope I have the same mind-set in 10-20 years too because if it smells good, then why not?! This smells sweet, yet fresh and not offensive at all. I personally hate musky woman scents so this is a big thumbs up from me! (Even if the bottle is a little scary!)
Illamasqua Blusher in ‘Hussy’ – This is such a new favourite I really wasn’t sure whether to include it, but after putting it on again today I knew it HAD to be! After my haul, I decided the first one I wanted to try was the much talked about hussy, and now I 100% understand why this has gotten so much love! It’s a BEAUTIFUL matte pink blush, with a tinge of peach but leaning heavier on the pink side. It looks so fresh and unlike any other colour I’ve applied to my cheeks before and again I’ll have to do a proper review with swatches on here too because I’m sooo excited about how stunning this is, plus the longer lasting time in comparison to many drugstore blushers!
