February Favourites!


The belated February Favourites is here! SCREW YOU ENGLISH WEATHER, I WIN! This is the month in which I realised I have a full-blown, uncontrollable addiction to makeup shopping. Oh dear. Let's look at all the stuff I have been loving and trying to smear all over my face. In one go. Here come the pictures!
I liked a lot of stuff this month, so let's get started with the eyes!
L to R; Topshop Wax and Wane, MAC Blue Brown Pigment, Barry M Starry-Eyed Palette
Let's chat first about my never-ending love for eyeshadows, shall we? As you already know, I got the Lorac Pro Palette 2, back in January, and you can read my review of it and check out the swatches right HERE, and it has become pretty much my go-to for all of February. I am especially in love with the matte shades which I am using to blend out pretty much every makeup look. A new addition to the collection is the Barry M Starry-Eyed Palette. I'll admit to being a little bit of a snob when it comes to drugstore brands, but this palette has been such a pleasant surprise! I posted about it on my Instagram a while ago, which you can check out HERE, and I've been using it since! I also posted about the GLORY that is the MAC Blue Brown Pigment. Guys, this might be one of the most beautiful things of all time. Like, ALL TIME. The duo reflects are out of this world, I've already told my loved ones that I want to be buried with it. A fairly new addition is the Topshop Chameleon Eyeshadow in Wax and Wane. I bought this when my sister was over visiting at the end of February and I cannot stop looking at it. It is gorgeous and has most gorgeous sheen and the multi-facets are just beautiful. 
 Onto face products I've been loving! Since I bought the Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit it has not left my makeup table. It is such a great product, especially for my Caspar skin. I had struggled to find a good contour that was easily available in the UK (unfortunately my NYX Taupe Blush has seen better days) and this has got such a lovely cool tone. It does look a little darker in the pan than what comes out but the quality was really impressive for the price. I would say do use a light hand and blend out well, but if you've been looking for a contour, then this might be for you! The other face products are the Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray, which has quickly become an absolute essential for me. This just guarantees that my rosy cheeks are held at bay for a little while longer! The other favourite is the MAC Prolongwear Concealer and mine is in NC15, and this is definitely worth the hype. The pump is very temperamental, there is definitely more of a scent than my other concealers, but the product is SO GOOD. I have always had creasing under my eyes and this is the first one I've ever used that isn't totally destroyed after 10 minutes, for that alone, it's love. I could probably have gone a shade lighter (Caspar for life) but it does a great job hiding my dark circles. 
L to R; MAC Rebel, Topshop Armour, MAC Hang Up, Revlon Matte Colourburst Balm in Shameless and Sultry.
 These were the lipsticks I was loving in February, all are new additions (I know, I have a problem!) except MAC Rebel, which was a Christmas present from my lovely sister. It is a gorgeous red-purple, which can appear more one or the other, depending on your skin-tone. On me it tends more towards purple, which is even more perfect because purple lipsticks are my favourite! Which you can also see with my Revlon Colourburst Balm in Shameless. I has lusted over this for SO LONG, and then one fateful day I found it in Boot's and it has been love ever since. The other MAC lipstick I am loving is Hang Up, which is a much darker red than it is showing up in this photo which is so disappointing. It has a slight brown undertone that I am especially happy about because I am discovering a new obsession with brown lipsticks at the minute. It's like the 90's are happening all over again! This brown obsession is where Topshop Armour and Revlon Matte Colourburst Balm in Sultry. The Topshop lipstick is a glorious metallic brown affair which I would normally run a mile from, but for some reason I am in love. The Revlon Balm is a more red-brown than it is showing in the pictures (SO ANNOYING) and it has become my go-to 'neutral' shade (I don't go very neutral. Ever). 
 And finally, film of the month is the UNBELIEVABLE The Guest. I already have a review of this up which you can read right HERE. When my sister was here I made her watch this (wasn't too hard, it has Dan Stevens in it. She literally SWOONED at him. SWOONED.) and I remembered how amazing this show is. It is batshit insane in the best way. Everyone should watch this immediately. Especially since Dan Steven's is now going to be the new Beast in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast! Fall in love with him before everyone else and then you can be a total hipster about it. Top life tip!

Alright, I have rambled on for long enough so I'll leave it there for tonight. Let me know all your February Favourites, or if you've tried any of these products, let me know your thoughts on them! You can hit me up below or find my on InstagramFacebook or Twitter. I will chat to you soon!

Be happy and be kind,
