Monthly Favourites | February 2014

The sun is shining and if this is a sign of things to come then I'm ready to welcome March with open arms! A month full of new beauty launches always goes down as a good month with me and February kept churning them out - a couple of which have made the cut into my favourites. And in completely none beauty related news...bring on pancake day!!

These are definitely one of the best launches of February, Revlon have got it so right! A drug store brand matte finish with a close to perfect formula and an amazing shade range - could we have asked for anymore?! The shade Elusive has been my go to daytime lip colour recently, it's a work appropriate dusky pink that applies easily and stays put!

I primarily got this to try and fade some marks from a breakout that I could just not leave alone (I'm a picker and I will never learn!) Which it's actually worked really well for and I'm really pleased with the results but it has also made my skin so baby soft and smooth and all dry patches are now a thing of the past!

MAC Eye shadow Palette
I don't know why I didn't make my own eye shadow quad earlier! There hasn't been a day since Christmas that I haven't used this in some way, the quality is absolutely amazing as is the colour pay off. The four shades that make up the palette are Shroom, All that Gitters, Satin Taupe and Espresso so I've got a highight shade, a couple of shimmery shades and something for the crease or eyebrows - I love a multifunctional shade!

A bit of sunshine and the promise of Spring means it's not long before I'm raiding my nail varnishes for pastels! Cornflower Gleam is one of Models Own newest Hyper Gel collection which have a glossy, smooth finish and come in a selection of vibrant shades.

This stuff is amazing, it's creamy and the coverage is heavy duty, it also doesn't budge for a good few hours and I can forgive the tiny bit of creasing because it works so well. This is one of the best under eye concealers that I've tried in a long time and the price just makes it better!
