I can't believe how quick February went, feels like only a couple of days ago I posted my January favs! So for the end of the month I gave up buying makeup.... I'm a student so I'm on a very tight budget and kept buying so much during the first few weeks of February but so far it's going well! Of course being February, many stores released a Valentine's Day collection but I only got my hands on a few Lush products for Valentine's day. So here's what I've been loving this month....
Eylure Lashes 101/107
When people say 'only start wearing lashes if you're ready to be addicted to them' listen to these people! Eylure have always been a brand I love for false lashes as they're so affordable, come in a wide variation of styles and are very easy to apply. As you can see I tend to buy mine in packs of 3/4/5 etc as you get a better value for money. These two styles are my current favourites with the 101s being quite a bit more lightweight and natural where as 107s are still natural looking but just a bit fuller, especially at the end. I use Duo lash glue in dark to apply these lashes and they always seem to last all day or night!
MAC Lily-White Pigment
I got this pigment about 8 months ago on holiday in St Lucia as I desperately wanted to buy it but it had sold out in the UK! It was released with the Fantasy of Flowers collection and straight away was a top seller. I only own one other MAC Pigment but this just makes me want to buy them all! It is so pigmented, especially when applied with MAC Fix+ and the shade is the perfect yellow/white hence the name! I love using this all over the lid with darker colours in the crease.
MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick
This is a lipstick that I've had for a year now but never really knew what to do with it. Personally I thought that this was too brown for my complexion but as soon as I got the perfect nude lipliner sorted I knew I immediately loved this lipstick. It is a more browny nude but is a lipstick that you can pair with some many liners and other lipsticks, it can make any makeup look come together and look beautiful.
Morphe Brushes Blending Brushes - B80, B81, M139
I have always been the biggest fan of MACs 217 Blending Brush however recently the hair on my brush became quite stiff and blending with this brush could hurt my eyelids. In a recent Morphe Brushes purchase I picked up some of their blending brushes which were only around £2 each, a fraction of MAC prices! The ones that I am currently using and loving are B80, B81 and M139. These brushes honestly blend any shadow out perfectly and their shapes allow for perfect movement, they are also so so so soft!
Lush Valentines Day - Prince Charming, The Kiss Lip Scrub
Last year was when I only really got into loving lush. I'd always tried out products from them but would never bother with any collections or limited edition products. And how wrong I was! I went into my local lush on Valentine's weekend and it was so busy I only managed to pick up a few things with only 2 of my items being from the Valentine's day collection. I picked up The Kiss Lip Scrub and Prince Charming shower gel. I haven't used the lip scrub yet as I'm trying to use up my Bubblegum lip scrub from lush however I LOVE the shower gel. It is very thick and very sweet and almost smells like Jelly Tots mixed with Jaffa Cakes!? Either way I only picked up a small bottle as I'm in between about 5 shower gels at the moment and I wish I picked up a bigger bottle!
Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint- Lychee
This is my second bottle of Lychee as I lost my last one! It was very well used anyway so I wasn't too fussed but as soon as I realised I'd lost it I knew I had to buy a new one ASAP! Lychee is part of the Gelly collection from Barry M which means it has a very glossy finish to it and doesn't necessarily need a top coat. The colour to me is the perfect nude shade and it's perfect all year round, I can't put it down at the moment!
Morphe Brushes Eyeshadows
I recently did a a post on my Morphe Brushes Eyeshadow Swatches as I had just ordered 15 shadows and I am in LOVE with them all. They are all so creamy and pigmented and honesty replicate MAC shadows however they're only £1/£2 rather than £15. I've chosen my favourite 9 which I'm currently loving and these are (going from left to right in each row starting at the top) Secretive, Velveteen, Porcelain, Gun Powder, Radiance, Bronzed Ivy, Starlight, Pretty in Pink, 80. I love all of the shades that I own and will definitely be making another purchase soon when I'm allowed to by more Makeup!
So that's all for February! I can't believe it's already March?! What have you guys been loving over the past month? Let me know and I'll check it out!
Hope you enjoyed,
