February

1 Mar

Hi lovelies!

February favourites time. I’m so glad February is over. It’s always my worst month, filled with deadlines and money woes. This is the last year though, so hoorah! (fingers crossed I pass Uni, and it is the last year) Let’s get cracking!

Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer – £7.99

This is a pretty new favourite for me, but it’s the best concealer I’ve tried in a long time. As someone who has pretty desert-y skin, with super parched under eyes, most concealers I’ve tried have just not lived up to the hype. Including the Nars Radiant Creamy and the Urban Decay Naked Skin. Major sad face. This feels light as air, provides dreamy coverage and doesn’t cling to any dry patches. That’s all I want! *snaps for Bourjois*

M.A.C Eyeshadows in ‘Omega’ (left) and ‘Patina’ (right)- £13 each

From ‘don’t believe the hype’ products, to ‘totally believe the hype products’. These shadows combine to make such the perfect barely there smokey eye look on my pale, pale skin. ‘Patina’ has long-been my favourite, and ‘Omega’ is such a perfect crease colour (as well as a universal brow powder, if you’re searching), and together they are perf. This combo is pretty much foolproof, not even ‘eye’ (haha, get it) can mess it up.

Also, these shadows are pretty much appropriate for any occasion. They’re perfect day to night-ers, I always just grab the duo and a Sigma E40 and buff on a bit more ‘Patina’ for night. And the pigmented, but non-creamy texture means they’re super long lasting.

Dior’s Glowing Gardens Illuminating Powder in ’01’ – £40

I hunted high and low for this baby. Like, seriously high and low. I had three other people on the lookout for it during my no-buy. And it’s still the only beauty product I’ve bought all year. I think I can definitively say that it’s my favourite highlighter of all time. Yep, I went there. I have so many highlighters, and this one is the cream of the crop. For all you fair-skinned girls out there, you just can’t go wrong with ’01’, and for everyone else, there’s ’02’. It’s silky, the perfect balance of glisten and glow, and it looks perfect. Just perfect. Look!

Too Faced Melted Lipstick in ‘Fig’ – £19

Now. When I first got this just before Christmas, I almost hated it. I swatched it and went ‘Noooooooooo!’ I remember this clearly, because about a week afterwards, I went to London for a Twitter Q+A with Tina Fey. Yeah, nbd guys, just, you know, one of my heroes. And I picked this up at 6am, and thought, ‘I’ll give it a go again, I suppose.’ Thank goodness I did, because this baby is the perfect winter pink for me. It’s not dark enough to be berry, and not light enough to be nude, it’s that perfect balance, and I just adore the way it looks.

Zoeva brushes – prices vary

I’m so in love with my Zoeva brushes that I couldn’t pick just one as a favourite. I got these in the glorious 5 days between Christmas and New Year and oh my. The best value for money brush ever, the best presentation ever. Fab fab brushes, and if you’re a little wary of splashing the cash on a set (these are the Rose Gold Vol.1 Eye Set), please just pick up one, fall in love, and thank me later.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

I thought this was totally kick-ass. I described it as The Hunger Games meets The Selection, which will possibly only mean something if you’re into YA. The author has just released book 2, Glass Sword, and has said there’ll be two more books. Very exciting!

Room-2015-Movie-Poster

Room

I saw this at 9.30am, alone, on a Thursday morning, in an empty cinema. It’s one of those films you leave the cinema thinking about, and spend the next week turning it over through your mind, churning through thoughts and feelings about the subject matter. I’m so so thrilled that Brie Larson won Best Actress at the Oscars, she was phenomenal, and Jacob Tremblay, who you’ve probably seen owning awards season and charming the socks off everyone he meets, has one of those faces that the camera just adores. Can’t wait to see what he does next. I will think about this film for a long time.

Carly-Rae-Jepsen-Emotion

E.Mo.Tion – Carly Rae Jepsen

Yes, you heard right. Carly Rae Jepsen. This album is total bubblegum, and it knows it. Jepsen is no Taylor Swift, trying to sneak in little thoughtful ballads, or wanting to play with the media through lyrics. She just wants everyone dancing. I love this album, and February thanked me for discovering it. But beware, it’s pop. I mean, sickly sweet pop, so proceed at you own risk.

And that’s it for this month, lovelies. I can’t wait to get March out of the way. Once I hit the end of the month, I will have finished every single lecture of my Uni course. WAHOO.

Have a great day, or evening, wherever you are.
