February Beauty Favourites

Sorry I'm a bit late with this post. I haven't been loving my blog lately so I haven't really wanted to post but I figured this is a good post to get back into it. I actually tried (*cough* bought) new things towards the end of January/beginning of February so I've got a couple of new products to report on.

I'm not massively into blushes. I suffer with quite a lot of redness so blush doesn't always seem necessary. This Makeup Revolution Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice was too pretty not to pick up. I'd be lying if I said I didn't buy it solely for that top highlight shade. Having said that, I haven't used that yet. I've been using the two left hand shades of the top row on rotation for the past few weeks. I've really been loving having a more peach toned blush.

This 'Nails Inc' Nail Polish in Battersea Park has been on my nails for the vast majority of the month. This has actually been one of my favourite nail colours throughout the whole of autumn and winter. It's a fairly deep green with a definite khaki tone. 

My Boots doesn't stock the Soap and Glory makeup range so this mascara is the first thing I've tried. When it says 'super volume' it ain't lying. One coat is all I need to define my lashes and bonus points are awarded for the fact that it doesn't transfer or smudge. 

 There really is nothing like the smell of a MAC lipstick. Brave is one of their satin finish lipsticks. I'm slowly starting a collection. I don't want hundreds, I kind of want one for each of the bases. I spent hours on google looking at swatches and, in all fairness, there isn't much difference in a lot of the shades I was looking at. Brave seemed to be one that most people have in their collections and I went with that as my pink based nude. I can't imagine it will take me long to need a new one it as I've been reapplying it like crazy since I bought it.

P.S. Love is Primark's beauty range. I don't live anywhere near a Primark and they don't have an online shop (sort it out Primark!) so I haven't had much chance to check out the range. As I mentioned earlier I have an issue with redness. These colour correctors seem to be everywhere but, as a natural skeptic, I didn't want to spend much on my first go. When I finally got to Primark and saw they had some I decided to give the green one a go. I actually love this. I much prefer the look of applying it on top of foundation as opposed to putting it on beforehand. It cancels out any unwanted redness and lasts all day. It's only £1.50 and did the job so I'll definitely be repurchasing this when I run out.
