February Favourites

It doesn't seem like two weeks ago that I was writing my January Favourites, I know it's a cliche but this year is already going so fast! I don't have many favourites this month and the beauty ones I got a couple of weeks ago but I've used them a lot already. 

The Soap and Glory Thick and Fast mascara is so good, my old Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express mascara has been an old favourite for a good few years, I think I've had four or five of these beauties and I decided it was time for a change and it would be something else to write about in this blog. I'd read quite a few good reviews of this mascara so I thought I would give it a try and seeing as I've been loving Soap and Glory this year I didn't expect to be disappointed. The brush is really nice to use, it's really big and thick. The best thing about this mascara is that I only need a few layers before my lashes look so much longer and bolder, with previous mascaras I've needed to keep going over it to get the desired effect. 

The next two products are both Revlon, another brand I've recently got into and I'm loving, I think the way they package their products is so classy and simplistic which is nice. The product on the left is Revlon Highlighting Palette in 003 Bronze Glow. I use this as a bronzer with a big brush so it picks up a bit of all the colours. I have to be wary not to get too much on my brush as I'm pale skinned and it can look like I have overly orange/bronze cheeks if I overdo it. If I do accidentally overdo it I tend to get my powder brush that still has a bit of powder on and buff my cheeks a bit to even it all out. The great thing about this highlighter is that with all the different colours it would be great to use as an eyeshadow, I haven't used it as an eyeshadow yet but I am planning on doing so.

The final product is Revlon Powder Blush with Brush in the shade 002 Haute Pink. I really should have taken a picture of the blush with its brush but I took it out as it's a bit small and would just get in the way and I'm not sure where it's gone. This is a really bright blush as you can see from the picture so the tiniest bit is needed but it just gives me a really nice glow. 

My other favourite of the month is a random one... Easter (I know it's not Easter yet!) mainly Creme Eggs They're just so yummy and we can only get them in the build up to Easter so I love it. 

Ta ta for now
