February Favourites

So its nearly the end of February and these are the products I have been loving this month.

 Simple hydrating light moisturiser
The consistency of this is very much what the name says, 'light' but still  really moisturising, its a great everyday moisturiser.

 Soap & Glory Hocus Focus
Ive done a whole post dedicated to this recently and as mentioned I love to wear this under my foundation.

 Herbel Essences Beautiful ends intensive mask
This leaves my hair so soft and sleek, this is the split end protection one, its really inexpensive, I will definitely be trying out some of their others.

 Revlon matte lipstick - 002 pink pout
I was after this for a while and got it at the end of January and have been loving it, do like it on its own but also like wearing it with a gloss over the top, usually a pink shade by Barry M.

 Bourjois highlighting powder - 53
This is the white version of the chocolate bronzer, I use this for the tops of my cheekbones just to add a subtle shimmer.

Soleil tan de Chanel
The more I use this the more I love it, it can look very over the top if im not careful as I am so pale, I have found the best way for me to apply it is to use my ELF stipple brush which gives a lighter application.

What's your favourites this month?

Sleek blush by 3 (limited edition)

 So, I was browsing around Superdrug and came across this beauty, The limited edition Sleek blush by 3.

 Lace (367), Crochet, Guipure, Chantilly

There are five different ones and I settled on this one as I found this was the only one where I liked all three shades and I found the others were quite dark. Ive always thought about getting a Sleek blush but never purchased one for some reason but loved that with this there are three different shades in a nice little compact palate.

Have you tried these, Which one is your favourite?

Soap & Glory's Hocus Focus

 Soap & Glory Hocus Focus instant visual flaw-softening lotion

The bottle reads
'use Hocus Focus alone as a cheekbone highlighter, mixed with moisturiser as a gorgeous skin brightener, or blend 2-3 pumps into your foundation. For a youthful, dewy, luminous look.'

I bought this product around the middle of last year, used it a couple of times then forgot about it again, until recently that is and I have fell in love with it. I apply this under my foundation and it just illuminates the skin and gives a lovely glow. I sometimes apply it to my cheeks as a highlighter but I do prefer it as just a base. I have also used it mixed in with my foundation but I find applying it on its own (using the same brush as my foundation) works better for me.

 Here's what the product looks like.

Here's what the product looks like blended in (as much as the camera will pick up)

I would definitely recommend this product, it is quite pricey at £13.00 but its 30ml and you only need a little. I have been using this everyday lately and will definitely be using it in the summer months to help give me a lovely glow in the sun.

Has anyone else tried this? What are your thoughts?

Love this no7 polish it's so natural looking which is great for wearing with false nails so they don't appear as false as they are!

January Favourites

Urban Decay Naked palate
Ive been reaching for this practically everyday this month, didn't really use it much when I bought it but love it now!
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (ivory 100)
Rimmel's newest foundation and thought I would give it a try and love it, gives such a nice glow with medium coverage.
Loreal Super Liner (carbon black)
Been a lot more into eyeliner this month and this one is so easy to use and stays all day.
Yankee Candle lip balm (vanilla cupcake)
How cute is this lip balm! Ive had quite dry lips recently (probably due to the fact that it has gone absolutely freeeeezing here in the UK recently) and have been using both this and carmex to help them out.
Carmex lip balm (cherry)
This is amazing for soothing and moisturising dry lips, works so quickly.
17 blush (china pink)
This adds a lovely flash of colour to the apples of your cheeks.
Tangle Teezer
I have loved this for months but for some reason it hasn't appeared in my monthly favourites so I thought it was about time it was. Since having this I don't use any other kind of brush, its amazing and really has helped my hair feel better since using it!

What are your recent favourites?

Glossybox - Valentines edition

I know Many people have already blogged about this but I thought id post about it still as some people like to see the different products that people get. Here's what I received:

Weleda - One step Cleanser and Toner
Will definitely try this out as I loved the Weleda body oil that was in a previous box.
Murad primer
I don't tend to use primer even though I have a few - will try to incorporate this step into my routine as it looks and feels great.
Orly nail polish - Ruby
Love the colour and will definitely be using this!
FAB gentle body wash
This is a body cleanser that claims to cleanse, calm redness and relieve dry skin. Interested in trying this as its different to the usual shower gel/body wash texture.
Eyeko Skinny eyeliner - plum
Not really a colour I would use but like the look of the product.
Glossybox sweet - Yum!
