February Favourites

So lets kick of this reunion with my February Favourites!

Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet

This is honestly one of the nicest foundations I've ever used. It's so lightweight and smooth, it gives a gorgeous velvety finish and I would say its a light to medium coverage but you can layer it up for a more heavy coverage. Normally I go for medium to high coverage foundations as I suffer with blotches on my skin and can get very dark bags so usually my number 1 priority with foundation is that everything is completely covered. With this Chanel foundation, even though its a light to medium coverage, it still blurs out blemishes and evens out the skin tone without weighing your face down which is so lovely. It also lasts a really long time and I can get a rather oily t-zone throughout the day but find I'm only going over with a powder once, generally about 5 hours after first applying the foundation. At £33 it is rather pricey but I always feel that if you're going to invest in an expensive make-up product then it should always be a foundation, radiant velvet skin is a must have in my books! ps you can currently get 10% this product over at Debenhams, just click on the title link!

Anastasia Beverly Hills, DIPBROW and #12 Brush

I know that this is probably everyone's holy grail eyebrow product but nobody could ever explain just how much this will change your life! I picked both up in Sephora in NYC and was so so excited to try it out. Its is so easy to use and you can get your brows perfected and ready within minutes. Its such a clean and quick product to use, its waterproof and lasts alllll day. If you are having any doubts about purchasing this, or if your just not sure if its worth the money....trust me, it is!

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer

I love this for concealing my under eye area, there is an ever so slight shimmer/sparkle in the formula that works wonders for reflecting the light and giving the illusion of a solid 8 hours sleep! It disguises dark circles and brightens up your face. Its a great alternative to YSL's Touché Éclat. As amazing as Touché is lets be honest here, I don't want to be wearing it every single day as its a pretty pricey product. If I did wear it every day I'd probably be repurchasing it every month and that is not good for a girls bank balance! This Rimmel concealer is such a good cheaper option for everyday wear, I don't really rate the Wake Me Up foundation but this concealer is ideal for under eyes and I just stick to my Collection Lasting Perfection for concealing the rest of my face!

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Lipstick

It was my birthday in February and this lipstick was one of my birthday presents from my amazing friends at work. The colour that the girls picked is so gorgeous, its a relatively sheer berry shade, it's no 9 and is called Pink Caress. It can be layered up to achieve a darker look which I also love but to spice up your every day make-up I love to use just one slick of this lipstick. It lasts all day and almost fades to a stain which I love as it makes it easier when darkening the look in the evening but it also means you don't have to worry about wiping off your lipstick when you eat/drink! The actual lipstick tube is so pretty which is a great bonus :)

Vans Metallic Rose Gold Trainers

These Vans were my birthday present from Toms mum. I've wanted them for ages but I kept finding them out of stock in most places but luckily she managed to get them from somewhere. I love them so much and am excited to wear them out once the weather gets better (I don't want to ruin them in the rain!)

Ladurèe Macaroons

Tom and I went to Paris for a few days for my birthday and no trip to Paris is complete without picking up a few macaroons from Ladurèe! They are so yummy I could honestly eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The flavours in this box are (L-R) Coffee, Pistachio, Lemon, Raspberry, Blackcurrant and Chocolate.

So these are the beauty products and other items that I have absolutely loved throughout February, I hope you enjoyed the post :) let me know if you've been loving any of these too and I'd also love to have a read of your Feb favs xoxo
