February Favourites

photo 1 (2)

I’ve only got four products this month as I haven’t really been doing a whole lot!

The first product is the Urban Veda Daily Radiance Face Wash, this was actually a sample out of February’s birchbox which I started using because my Body Shop Tea Tree face wash started to smell a little funky and this was the only other face wash that I had available and I love it!! It comes out as a clear gel with a clean fresh ‘grown-up’ smell. It makes my skin feel so soft and it is made out of natural products so it’s a win-win situation.

I’m not too keen on Rimmel’s Soft Kohl Eye Pencil (in Sable Brown) as an eyeliner but it is the best eyebrow product that I have ever used! I very lightly (and I mean REALLY lightly) brush the colour over my eyebrows and it looks natural but well-groomed!

This one was a rediscovery of an old love! It is Mac’s Eye-shadow Satin Taupe which 99.99% of people who know anything about make up will have heard of! I bought this when I first got into reading beauty blogs and watching YouTube. This is one of 4 mac products have so I am by no means Mac-Obsessed but I love this eyeshadow, it is the perfect crease colour and the purple tones in it make my eyes look even greener than they are! I have not been able to bypass this whilst putting my make up on at all this month, perfection!

For anyone who is subscribed to me and read last week This Week I… post (and for those who didn’t you can find it here) it will come as no surprise that Rimmel’s Match Perfection Foundation is in my favourites for this month and I can’t really say anything about it that I haven’t already said!

What have you been loving this month?

This Week… I got a Haircut and a New Foundation

This week was half term which meant no 7am starts, no bus journeys and whilst I do have to go back to college tomorrow, I now have two weeks of work, so I have several post ideas that will heading your way in the next fortnight!

This week has been a time of trying new things, which for me is a big thing. It takes a lot to get me out of my comfort zone or even try a new foundation! But alas, that is exactly what I did. I recently invested in the Rimmel London Match Foundation in Ivory, I know, I’m two months late to the hype as usual, but I only tried this because I left my usual foundation at my boyfriend’s (who is still hobbling around due to his leg) flat so I had to use my sisters whilst home for a couple of days and this is what she was using. I only wish I had jumped on the band wagon and bought this when everyone else was discovering it! It promises ‘Light perfecting radiance foundation [which promises] traceless coverage for flawlessly skin under any light’ and lasts all day, it also has SPF 18. This is a pretty bold statement and all for a price tag of £6.99.

I was blown away by this foundation! It is bloody fantastic! I actually prefer this to my £25-a-pop Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation. It has good coverage and a shine without making my skin look oily but rather fresh. The actual product has an almost gel-like texture but feels creamy on the skin and it lasts all day yet doesn’t look cake-y, which is useful when you have an 8 hour shift at McDonalds and don’t want your foundation to be dripping on the till or like you’ve applied your make-up with a trowel.  Overall, for the price, packaging and lasting power this is sure to be gracing my shopping basket again!
