Since I’ve had a bit of a break from the blogging I’ve merged my March and April favourites. Doing this means it’s going to be a bit of a long one so be prepared. As I get closer to my goal of being a makeup artist I’ve really tried to branch out and try a few different things but I’ve also had to keep my personal purchases on a budget because let me tell you, building a MUA kit is by no means cheap! So although there’s a high end product or two included if you’re looking for some tried and tested cheap alternatives, you’re reading the right post! Continue reading “March + April Favourites!”
February for me was a good month, as part of getting over a bad bout of anxiety I am making a big effort to be more positive and to stop talking about negative things if I don’t need to. I’ve got some great stuff to look forward to this year and I’m very happy on a whole. How have you been feeling this month? Continue reading “February Favourites”
I am so so excited to be doing my first favourites post. It’s something I knew I wanted to do on my blog from the beginning. Here’s what I have been loving this month.
I wrote about this in my Makeup Revolution Review 2 – Palettes and I have honestly loved it since. It’s what I have been reaching for pretty much every time it has such a good mix of colours the possibilities are actually endless! I feel as if I could use it everyday for months and still be doing a new look every day. I love the presentation of the palette and the pigment for most of them is to die for. There is such a good variation of colours but still a scheme to it which I think is amazing. 30 colours for £9.99 is just a steal!
I received this in a set for Christmas. The other product I didn’t really like which I will be including in a post soon. This shampoo left my hair feeling brilliantly soft but also so easy to style which isn’t a combination you can always get with freshly washed hair. I usually pair it with a Dove or Herbal Essences conditioner and I’ve found it doesn’t make much difference which one. I will definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out (I’m currently hiding it from my mom and sister because I don’t want it to!).
Now I really love to be tanned but I think fake tanning is such a pain in the arse, to be honest. I hate when it goes streaky and horrible it looks when it’s coming off. So I’d got this for Christmas and I thought it would look just like a moisturiser so I crapped myself when it came out brown! I applied it and was so happy with the result! It’s perfect if you have your shoulders or arms out and want a healthy glow. It washes right off but doesn’t go patchy if it rains or heaven forbid get a bloody drink spilt on you on a night out! It’s such a big bottle as well I can already tell it’s going to last such a long time.
I spoke about how badly I wanted this in my Boots Haul and it has not disappointed me! I’ve reached for it all month and I am just loving the consistency of it and the colour is lush. I fully recommend the NYX liquid suede’s to anyone and I feel bad for neglecting my others lately! They’re definitely one of my favourite lip products ever.
I picked this up earlier in the month because I really want to try more foundations, especially high-end if anyone has any recommendations! At first I wasn’t sure of the matte finish because it’s not as easy to blend concealer on top but I’ve found if I use a little bit more foundation than usual it’s easy. It’s also such a full coverage foundation that it completely covers some of my blemishes which is brilliant. I’ve been using this constantly now and I dread the day it runs out! It really does last a long time with or without a setting spray.
I think one of the main reasons I am loving this so much is the fact that it’s only £3! The packaging and the colour is to die for. It last’s so long and it’s the perfect nude. It’s described as buildable colour which it really is. You can have it quite sheer or a full coverage and it doesn’t affect the feel on the lips which I think is just so clever.
I really wanted to try and use masks more regularly, one of my new years resolutions was to take better care of my skin. I ordered this along with some others and I am obsessed with it. It really clears all the crap from your skin and leaves you feeling so clean and fresh. I love to use it on a night because you don’t want to put anything else on to tarnish your skin afterwards because it feels so clear! This has become a firm favourite in my skin care routine.
I was so excited when I seen this and for some reason I forgot to include it in my boots haul. I think it’s because it very quickly became a staple product of mine. I don’t like the small beauty blenders/sponges because I don’t like the lack of grip you have. This is just like a small bb/sponge but on a wand meaning you have complete control and it works so well in the contours of the face. It’s only £4.50 and such a good tool to have! It’s a little hard to wash as it feels as if you squeeze or pull too hard it might come out but I haven’t had too much trouble with it yet.
I’m going to keep this short because I did already review this palette but I have been reaching for it constantly for blush and highlight and I am just living for the glow! It does such a brilliant job at brightening the face and I can’t get enough of it.
That’s what I have been loving this month! Let me know if you have been loving any of these products or one of your favourites this month that you think I would like to try!
