February Favourites


I'm not the best at being a frequent blogger but the lighting hasn't been very grateful for bloggers recently either! I thought I would round up my favourite products from February for you today on my day off from college!


La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo [+] LINK
I was reluctant to try this after finding out it has a new formula and I think my skin is happy to have this back! It did make a slight improvement on my skin at first but it is definitely a product to continue using for it to keep working! Grab it now before it goes up to full price!

Nivea Soft Moisturiser LINK
My favourite moisturiser for my makeup base ran out and when it isn't available in my closest Boots store, I decided to try my Nivea Soft Moisturiser that has been sitting on my drawers for a while. I personally don't prefer it to my original Aveeno Moisturiser but I still think it does the job well and makes a good base for my makeup


Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer - 15 LINK
Similar to the majority of bloggers, the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is the best I've tried but when it wasn't available in either Boots or Superdrug I had to look around. I normally read many reviews before I buy something but I couldn't start looking up reviews in the middle of Boots! I decided on the Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer after remembering Zoe from Zoella include it in a favourites video. This concealer blends really well and has better coverage than I thought. It isn't thick and does feel thin on the skin again with excellent coverage!

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - Light Porcelain LINK
I have been loving the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation but with even the lightest shade too dark, I needed a cheap foundation to mix it with to lighten the shade. I have wanted to try this foundation since they changed the formula and with it also being on offer for £5, why not? It mixes really well, and both foundations together last all day. it seems like it would have light coverage if used on its own so this would be perfect for anyone who wants a lighter base

Estée Lauder Eyeshadow Duo - Raisins
I have mentioned this before after using the lighter shade but for a while I have been blending the darker shade on the outer corner of my eye after using the peach shade. The pigmentation is amazing and both shades blend effortlessly, unfortunately this has been discontinued but Estée Lauder have a new trio palette called 'Sterling Plums' with very similar shades

Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo - Pink Gold LINK
Getting the train to college and getting up at 6am means I don't always have time to be blending eyeshadow, so this has been my staple 'go to' quick eyeshadow recently. As the name suggests, it is a very nice pink shade with a hint of gold and subtle shimmer. Should definitely be a staple in everyone's makeup bag!

L'oreal Colour Infaillible Eyeshadow - 021 Sahara Treasure LINK
I have had this in my collection for a while but it seems like it managed to drop through the cracks whenever I would be doing my makeup. I decided one day to give a go and it is such a gorgeous shade! It is a pressed pigment so it isn't messy to carry around but has excellent colour payoff. It seems the 'go to' shade for this time of year is bronze shades on the eyes and natural makeup and this eyeshadow is perfect for that!

Essie Nail Polish - Mint Candy Apple and Saturday Disco Fever LINK
Two colours I have been loving recently are orange and mint green. Mint Candy Apple is the perfect mint shade and I have been using this shade at every opportunity when I'm not at college. Saturday Disco Fever is a bright orange shade that I have been loving using on my toes although looks a lot better with a layer of white polish underneath

Maybelline Baby Lips - Pink Punch LINK
To keep my lips moisturised whilst adding a hint of colour, the Maybelline Baby Lips is the perfect way to go! Similar to my eyeshadow, I needed something quick to put on before running out the house. I'm surprised at the amount of colour you can get from this at the same time as it being very moisturising! Again, something to always be kept in your makeup bag :)


Breaking Bad LINK
You're probably getting annoyed by the amount of people talking about Breaking Bad, but if you haven't watched it, seriously where have you been?! A few of my friends had been telling me to watch so I decided to use the free trial on Netflix to watch it, setting myself the task of watching all 5 seasons before the trial was over! Honestly, I did get a bit addicted to watching this and when the next episode was going to start 'in 8 seconds' I couldn't not watch it. I think I finished watching all seasons in 1 and a half to 2 weeks, it's that good!

That pretty much sums up my favourite products and one TV programme in February! What were your favourites? Have you watched Breaking Bad?
