It’s that time of month again, and boy has this month gone fast (I know I say that every month but seriously). Although this month is a short one, I still have a bunch of products which I have been loving during the month of February.
Staring out with skincare, and theres two products which I have really been enjoying using! Starting out with the Garnier Moisture Match in the Mattifying formula. This is great if, like me, you tend to get oily skin during the day. The formula is almost silicony, meaning it not only leaves a great base for foundation, but it leaves the skin with a matte finish. This has really been something i’ve been enjoying recently and one I would recommend with those of you with combination to oily skin.
On my more lazy days, makeup wipes are my bff. I must point out however, I only use these in and out, certainly not on an everyday basis. But the Soap and Glory makeup wipes are great. They take off your makeup effectively and whats more they smell divine!
Now onto my favourite part, the makeup! One that’s probably not a shocker to most is my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. I can’t say enough good things about this..I could literally sit here and rave about it all day. But that would be boring and slightly repetitive so i’m going to keep it brief. THIS IS AMAZING. There, I said it. Seriously though, the pigmentation of shadows are gorgeous and the shade range is perfect for neutral lovers like myself.
February was the launch of an exciting new product from Benefit. As you all know, Benefit’s They’re Real is my all time favourite mascara, and one that I use religiously. So when I heard that they came out with their new Roller Lash I was beyond thrilled. Now £19.50 isn’t cheap for a mascara, so I wanted to try it before I decided to pick it up. That’s why when I saw that ELLE had a travel size mini in their March issue, I grabbed it asap. Lets just say March may be the month that I buy the full size of this, it grabs every lash to give the illusion of fake lashes, perfect for girls with short lashes like myself.
Soap and Glory is one of my favourite drugstore brands and they’re Kick Ass concealer is also a new favourite. This high-coverange product has been perfect for covering up those pesky blemishes, and with a power to set it all in place, what’s not to love?! Along the lines of drugstore makeup, Maybelline’s Brow Gel has also been a top contender this month. It sets those brows perfectly in place..trust me they won’t budge!
And last but not least, my drugstore gem. Natural collection isn’t a brand that I would typically swerve towards whilst browsing the isles of boots, but I happened to this month and picked up an old friend. Their lipstick in the shade Raspberry is stunning. Not only the formula incredible for it only being £2.99 (don’t hold me on that price) but the colour is gorgeous, and ideal for spring/summer.
