February Favourites

It's monthly favourites time! February has really been the shortest month ever, it went so fast which means Spring is literally just around the corner. This month I've been loving a few bits of makeup, trying new products is my favourite thing ever and when I fall in love with something, I always want to share that with you. I've been buying so many new products recently, normally I'm so good at saving but recently I've just wanted to buy anything and everything in Boots! 
















First of all is one of three Makeup Revolution favourites, I honestly cannot recommend this brand enough at the moment, it just gets better and better! I actually received the I Makeup Naked Chocolate palette in January and I've been using it non stop, I find myself running to it most days because the shades are so neutral and you can create so many different beautiful looks. The shadows are all super pigmented, creamy and the lasting power is phenomenal and guess what, this palette costs a tiny amount of just £7.99 available from Makeup Revolution and Superdrug. 













My two other Makeup Revolution favourites include the Amazing Lipstick in Lady which is the most perfect true red shade ever, I actually love this more than my L'Oreal and Rimmel red lipsticks. The formulation of these is insane, they cost £1.00 and honestly, they are so so so good. If you've tried and like Makeup Academy lipsticks, you'll love these as they're even better. Then we have one of the single eyeshadows which are also just £1.00, this particular shade is called Touch Me and its the most perfect light, creamy white eyeshadow. I use this every single day on my brow bone and inner corner of the eye, its so brightening and so pigmented for the price, as you can see, I've already hit pan!














Moving on to this beautiful Shimmer Brick by Seventeen, I actually did a full review on this product which you can read here. The shades in this little palette are so stunning and I've been really enjoying this to give my skin that beautiful dewy glow, as well as using the shades as eyeshadows, swirled together it makes the perfect everyday eye look. You can also grab this shimmer brick in a more bronze shade which is pretty similar to by Bobbi Brown shimmer brick, but it is equally as beautiful as this rose shade! 

Lastly are two products by Benefit, a brand I have a bit of a love hate relationship with. Firstly I borrowed my Mums Porefessional Primer because I wanted to try something under my eyes to stop my concealer creasing and settling into the fine lines. I've really noticed a difference since using this around the eye area so I'm really enjoying it at the moment, I'd definitely recommend it if you do have larger pores or fine lines you want to fill to allow your makeup to apply more evenly. Finally its the oh so lovely and new Roller Lash, this is just a sample size I received in the March edition of Elle magazine but this mascara is really great. I have very straight, stubborn lashes that require waterproof mascara to look half decent but this little bad boy is some serious good stuff. I love how this separates every little lash and you can go from a very natural fluttery look to a more volumised look with just a couple of coats.

  3. Love all your Makeup Revolution picks! I wish the Superdrug near me stocked the range, I really want to look at everything in real life as I just can't decide what to buy online! The Shimmer Brick looks almost identical to the Bobbi Brown one which I've been lusting over for ages now :o I'm going to have to check it out!!

    1. Thank you, they're amazing products! Ah my local Superdrug doesn't stock them either, I've also found that the Superdrugs that do stock it, only have a very small selection so you're better off ordering online! x

    1. Ah is it hard to get hold of over there? I feel the same in the UK about brands such as NYX, so hard to get your hands on their products over here. x
