February Favourites.

February always seems to drag even though it’s the shortest month. Saying that though, 2017 is already flying by! But I am happy that it’s almost spring, the weather is getting slightly better (if we completely skip the force that was Storm Doris) and the evenings are getting longer which just makes me a lot happier in general. I’ve been trying out a lot of new products this month, I should’ve been on a spending ban but as I mentioned in my last post, My Recent Makeup Purchases, that went completely out the window!

So without further ado, here’s what I’ve been loving this month..

My most reached for eyeshadow this month comes from Tanya Burr’s line of cosmetics. Considering how reasonably priced these palettes are, they are such good quality like you’d expect from your more higher end brands. The palette contains 4 wearable shades – Nude Delight and Gold Coin are my most used shades, great for a nice subtle look when you don’t want anything too heavy. Nude Delight makes a great base shadow too. Enchantment is a stunning bronze with glitter chunks in it, it’s really beautiful and Bookworm is a lovely warm brown. I also love the packaging – it’s compact and would definitely be a palette to take with you travelling. 
Since getting my eyebrows waxed and shaped at Benefit’s Carnaby Boutique in late January (I definitely recommend, by the way) I have started using my Benefit brow products a lot more than I used to. Goof Proof is a brilliant pencil which comes in 6 shades, I currently use 5 – Deep which I think may be a little dark for me, however, for now, it works. I will pick up 4 – Medium when I can. If you’re a bit cack handed and not a brow whizz, Goof Proof is your best friend. This makes filling and shaping your brows so easy. 
I’ve already written a full review on these gorgeous liquid lipsticks from Stila here, if you fancy a read. My favourite shade is Perla and I can’t stop wearing it! A gorgeous dusty pink, I was certain this would wash me out but it doesn’t. I love the formula, it’s creamy on application and then dries to matte within a matter of seconds, super comfortable too! 

This product is raved about by so many and I can see why. An exfoliating toner, I use this pretty much every morning to smooth out, brighten and nourish my skin to achieve a glowing complexion. I find this has reduced my pores, blackheads and the tiny bumpy spots I have on my forehead have significantly reduced too. I’m now running low but I’ll definitely be buying another.
My current go to facial oil, this is perfect for dehydrated, sensitive skin and contains a whole bunch of amazing ingredients such as Strawberry Seed, Chamomile, Arnica and Primrose Oil. It leaves the skin feeling calm and strengthened.

Adult colouring books are all the rage at the moment and I absolutely love them. When I came across this fashion flat lay book, I was over the moon. It’s a must have for any fashion fan, it’s a great way to just relax and chill out when you’re feeling a bit stressed or bored.

  • I originally didn't think I would like Tanya burr's palettes, but I had Birthday Suit and I couldn't stop using it for ages! The pigmentation is actually really nice and am thinking I now need to get my hands on that palette! Pixi is amazing and the glow tonic did wonders to my skin! I'm running low on it too though! xx


  • The Tanya Burr eyeshadow palette looks so pretty. Definitely my kind of shades. x

  • Same, I'm always a bit sceptical of 'celebrity' brands but they are really nice palettes! I've just ordered Birthday Suit actually! x

  • It's really lovely! xo

  • Thank you! xo

  • Is this a coincidence that we've both included pixi glow tonic in our february favourites posts or is it because we are both genius' and know a good product when we try it? haha! I really want to try some more of Benefit's brow products
