What I've been loving in February


So I know it's quite late for a February favourites post but better late than never I suppose. I haven't got as many favourites as I usually do this month but I've had a little bit of a shake up with a few new pieces in my make-up collection.
Firstly I've started by trying out some new eye shadows, I've been lusting after Urban Decay's Naked Palette forever now but I'm still not ready to commit to buying it as I still can't justify it as most of the time, I can't be bothered to wear eye shadow- I'm also a bit of a noob at applying it but we'll forget about that. I've really been loving this Sleek Storm palette at the moment. Every shade is absolutely gorgeous and they are beautiful quality. They seem much more expensive than they are! I'll be doing a post on this palette shortly with a few different looks that I have been creating from it.

With me being a loyal lover of Loreal Volume Million lashes mascara, I haven't tried a new mascara in a long time. I picked up Maybelline the Rocket Volume mascara on a whim and I am well and truly converted! It doesn't flake or smudge and creates length and volume like no other.

Recently I've been addicted to skincare and when I picked up Una Brennan Super Facialist Rose Hydrate Calming Creamy cleanser when browsing my local boots I instantly knew I just had to pick it up. I love using this after I've removed my make-up before I go to bed as the rose scent is really calming and relaxing. My skin is left feeling baby soft and lovely before bed which has me hooked! After the freezing cold weather, my skin has been left very dehydrated so this little beauty has solved all my troubles. This is designed to be used after the pre-cleanse oil in the same range, which I'm going to have to pick up too!

My favourite foundation combination of the month has to be Revlon Colorstay mixed with Boujois Healthy Mix Serum. On it's own I really do not like Revlon Colorstay. I just found it to look quite cakey, not blend well and I just generally didn't like the feel of it on my skin. I absolutely love Boujois Healthy Mix Serum on it's own as it makes my skin look glowy and healthy. But as it's quite low coverage, if I'm needing a heavier coverage I just add a drop of Revlon Colorstay to pump up the coverage whilst still having a healthy looking base.


What have you been loving this month?

    1. It's a great one to pick up if you're just getting into eye shadow as it's around the £8 mark so not too pricey! I'm completely addicted to it now!x

  3. Sleek's Storm palette looks very similar to MUAs Heaven and Earth! Being a sucker for neutral eyeshadows, i'll probably by this on the weekend!

  5. Colorstay didn't work for me either - maybe I should try it with something else! I want the Rocket mascara as well, I've heard so much about it.
