Can you believe that in two days it is the end of February? Before we know it, it’ll be the start of Spring, but I don’t know about you but I’m very much looking forward to that. The clocks go forward, the days get longer and the sun starts to come out. Hopefully, it warms up a little bit too. But, anyway, I better shut up as it’s time for February’s beauty favourites.
CHARLOTTE TILBURY INSTANT LOOK IN A PALETTE IN BEAUTY GLOW
You’ve heard me rave about the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks before but until earlier this month this was all I had tried, despite much lusting. Since picking this up I have fallen completely in love with the product and it’s only made me want to try more from Charlotte Tilbury. I adore this palette, and love how pigmented and smooth each of the various shades are, especially the three eyeshadows. I shared a makeup look recently if you want to see it in action, but I will be writing a full review soon.
IT COSMETICS YOUR SKIN BUT BETTER CC+ CREAM*
The It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream* is a product that I’ve been wanting to try for what feels like literally forever, so it’s incredibly nice to finally try this product. It’s described as a full coverage base but I would actually say it’s more of a medium coverage but I have completely fallen in love with it. I love that it provides way more coverage than any other CC cream I have tried whilst feeling incredibly lightweight on the skin. I love that it has SPF in it, and how well it lasts too.
BENEFIT BAD GIRL BANG MASCARA
This is probably a controversial one to include in this months beauty favourites, as there are so many mixed views, but I’ve been really enjoying using the Benefit Bad Girl Bang mascara. I tried it in Boots the day it was released and I was so impressed with the results that I couldn’t resist picking up a mini, and I’ve been enjoying it ever since. The formula is thicker but very wet so can be a little tricky to apply but I really do love it. I find I do get a few little clumps but I can easily get these out with my nails, and for the incredible end result I really don’t mind.
COLOURPOP ULTRA SATIN LIP IN NOVEMBER
I think you all know my feelings towards Colourpop now, but after receiving a few bits as an anniversary/Valentines present I’ve completely fallen for a new shade of the Ultra Satin Lip formula. November is a gorgeous warm peachy pink that I had to include in this months beauty favourites. I love the shade and that it seems to brighten up any makeup look. It’s definitely one I can see myself reaching for a lot as we head into Spring.
CAUDALIE S.O.S THIRST QUENCHING SERUM
I realise I only mentioned I was using another serum sample in my recent beauty wishlist post, but somehow this has miraculously gone missing. Since then I’ve been using a sample of the Caudalie S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum and somehow I seem to be loving this one even more. It doesn’t leave my skin as glowy but it has been really helping with my dry skin, and it instantly makes my skin look better and more moisturised. I love that it’s a fuss-free product that just works so well.
CLINIQUE PEP-START EYE CREAM
Another sample product but oh my, it’s difficult to describe just how much I love this product from Clinique. The skin under my eye is slightly textured to go with my lovely dark circles, but since using this product I’ve really noticed a difference. The Clinique Pep-Start Eye cream is incredibly hydrating, brightens my eyes, and seems to have helped with the texture. It’s the first eye cream I’ve loved in a while, and I only wish I had started this sample earlier.
Okay, I don’t have a photo of this one, but last week my friend and I had LVL done on our lashes prior to her hen do, and I couldn’t not mention it. I’m so, soo impressed with the results and really recommend it to anyone. If you’re not sure what an LVL lash treatment it is, it essentially adds a curl through lifting, adds volume and lengthens your lashes. It also involves having your eyelashes tinted. Whilst having this done is the oddest sensation the fact that my eyelashes now have a curl and look super fluttery and like you’ve got a really good mascara on, is incredible. I can easily get away with not bothering with mascara, and I look far more together without makeup than I usually do too. The treatment lasts 6-8 weeks too!
What are your beauty favourites lately? Have you tried any of the products I’ve mentioned?
