February Favourites

Hello lovelies! Wow, can you believe February is over already?! The fact that all of my exams are in only 3 months time has all of a sudden just dawned on me. This year is going seriously really fast but in all seriousness, we aren't going to complain that summer is pretty much round the corner now! In today's post it is of course that time of the month again where I share with you everything that I have been loving throughout the past month. So sit back, grab your coffee and enjoy!









NARS Stick Concealer in 'Chantilly'
I do already have this in the creamy radiant concealer form but in 'light vanilla' which I love, it gives such an amazing coverage and so this month I decided to pick it up one shade lighter and in the stick form. I am definitely not disappointed, I find this works perfectly for covering up any unwanted blemishes whereas the creamy radiant style formula is better for the under eye area to help brighten those bags! I couldn't recommend the NARS concealers enough, there consistency is super creamy and thick, creating a flawless barely there finish alongside a glowing base.

Dove Style and Care Hair Serum
I hate my hair. No, seriously I really hate my hair. It's frizzy, dry and greasy all at the same time. It's definitely a bit of a nightmare to manage. Dry shampoo usually works a treat to cure those greasy roots but what about my dry ends?! I barely ever even use heat on my hair and yet they are still brittle, weak, dry and filled with split ends. But then, I came across this beauty in Superdrug. All you do is simply apply a couple of pumps to the ends of your hair and even after only using this for a few days I can see and feel the difference in my hair. My spilt ends appear less visible, my hair feels much softer and why of course, this has me so much happier about the appearance of my hair. You can also use this prior to heat styling which acts as a brilliant heat protectant for your hair.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in '05 Lovely Pink'
Another purchase from my recent trip to Superdrug. Now of course when you see a product is the last one in stock, you go back again the next day and see it's still there it's definitely fate for you to pick it up, and so of course I did. This is such a gorgeous, natural colour and although you can see shimmers in its packaging when applied it adds such a lovely matte flush of colour to the cheeks. This has been definitely appropriate throughout this past month, or the month of pink as I like to call it.

Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer
This is really pathetic but besides fibre lashes I have never tried an actual lash primer before. But now I finally have I am never going back, I tried this out for a meal I went to for my auntie's birthday a few days ago and oh my this genuinely all day like I am talking from half 11 in the morning in the morning when I was getting ready until 1am when I finally decided to take my make-up off. I applied this underneath my current favourite mascara, of course that is the one and only Roller Lash by Benefit Cosmetics. This primer helped to add further lift, better hold, longer lashes the absolute lot. And I have short eyelashes, so I need all the help I can get!

MAC Matte Lipstick in 'Velvet Teddy'
Now, we move on to the product that has took the beauty world by storm recently and pretty much every blogger and every YouTuber is talking about the lipstick. I'm usually not a massive fan of matte lipsticks just because I do tend to get really bad dry and cracked lips, especially in the Winter time but I find adding a peach lip balm over the top of this looks incredible. For a matte finish as well, I find this to be unusually but brilliantly quite a creamy formula. The colour is stunning, it isn't quite brown but it isn't quite peach or nude either. I find this shade to be so versatile and matches pretty much every skin tone. I am looking for a lip liner to match this shade, I've heard good things about 'Stripdown' but it is sold out genuinely EVERYWHERE. So if you have any other recommendations then please do let me know in the comments down below!

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in 'Light' 
Lastly, an old but well loved favourite of mine. This month I have been returning back to my beloved BB creams and this one by Maybelline has always been one of my favourites. I have combination skin but at the moment it has been drying out quite a lot particularly around my nose area and the section between my eyebrows which looks disgustingly noticeable with foundation for some reason at the moment. To solve this I have been opting for a light base for now so I don't have to worry about my skin looking as dry as a bone. 


So there you have it then lovelies, that is everything that I have been loving throughout the month of pink! I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments down below any products you have been loving lately, I would love to hear all of your recommendations. Until next time, 


What were you loving in February?

  9. I've heard so many good things about the Maybelline BB cream! The only problem is that I seem to be simply too pale for every shade that they do ^.^''

    1. Wow that's such a shame! But you're right they definitely should invent more shades, having only 2 is very limited x
