Hello March, jeez you crept up quickly! it felt like two minutes ago I was heading back for my second term at university and now I’m less than two months away from finishing.. what a terrifying but relieving thought that is haha. Anyway, I thought I’d share with you a few of my favourite beauty products I’ve been gravitating towards this February. It’s a pretty good mix! usually, I’m a firm favourites kind of gal but I’ve tried and tested a few new things from high street brands such as Rimmel and Maybelline this month and I’m pretty impressed!
Before I get into it, 980 Bloglovin’ followers – how mental is that?! I remember the days when I’d sit here and look at my thirty followers and think oh my god am I ever going to get anywhere? if you’re reading this and feeling disheartened by that pesky old number – don’t. I’m living proof that a bit of self-motivation and pixie dust will get you places. So thank you to all of you who have stuck by my bad lighting days and uncontrollable rants, you’re the best.
Ok, so first things first I thought I’d talk about my beloved brow gel. This product has literally revolutionised my brow game and I don’t think I could ever be without it again. As I usually just use my ABH dip brow, I’ve never really seen a use for setting my brows, so I just bought it on a whim thinking I might try it for no makeup/effort days. I’m so pleasantly surprised, I use the clear gel to set my brows into place and since it’s a gel, this helps the pomade glide on effortlessly, it’s like they were made for each other – and for around four pounds it’s a great price to repurchase. The other Rimmel product I’ve been loving lately is my Magnif’eyes palette in the keep calm & wear gold shade. This palette is gorgeous since I’ve been getting into eyeshadow a lot more lately I’ve been leaning towards this for neutral everyday looks. It’s a perfect balance of matte and shimmer shades and the shimmers are really pigmented – especially if you apply them wet!

This is a lippy I’ve featured before in one of my monthly favourites but I feel it deserves another mention because I wear this pretty much non-stop. I’m such a huge fan of Soap & Glory’s skincare and bath and body range so I wasn’t really sure what to expect from their makeup range but I’m really impressed. I’ve repurchased this ‘Perfect Day’ shade three times now and really I don’t think I can live without it. It’s a perfect nude brown, velvet teddy-esque shade for an everyday wear, but without a Mac price tag. The lasting power is pretty good too, though if you are to top it up during the day it doesn’t get that awful gritty feeling like most lipsticks do.
The next brand I want to talk about is another high street favourite, Maybelline. You know when a product is so good that you feel like you want to personally thank the person who created it for making your makeup so damn good? that’s how I feel about the new Falsies Push Up Angel Lash (even though I forgot to get a close-up pic). I won’t go too much into it because I feel like pretty much every blogger on the planet owns this mascara, but I 100% recommend it. I was quite sceptical at first because the brush is.. ‘odd looking?’ but I think it’s the way the brush has been designed that makes the mascara so good – if you’re a lover of the Falsies range, definitely try this new one! I also picked up another shade of the Colour Tattoo eyeshadow’s to try – this being the Eternal Gold shade. It’s super pigmented though, so when I wear it i tend to blend it with a few darker colours so it’s not too in your face, but overall it’s a gorgeous shimmery shade and the lasting power is amazing.
Last but not least, the honourable mentions. Thank you to Anastasia Beverly Hills for always allowing my contour to stay on-fleek with the Cream Contour Kit in the shade Light . Even though I hate that you don’t sell the cream refills yet and I have to fork out almost £40 everytime I need a new shade, you’re worth it I guess. The Sleek Solstice Highlighting palette that doesn’t even need a write up because I’m sure everyone knows that this is the best highlighter you can get your hands on. And a huge thank you to Real Techniques for the Deluxe Crease and Angled Shadow brushes, making my eyes always perfectly blended this February.
