February Favourites

Hello Lovelies!

Can you believe that February has come and gone already? Absolute craziness! I hope you all had a good month and are looking forward to March! March is my favourite month, because it's my Birthday month! Yay!

This month I've had quite a few new products to try out and the majority of my favourites this month are new products!

Essie Fiji & Barry M's Ruby Glitter
I have been wearing this nail combination for the past couple of weeks. I was originally looking for the L'oreal Confetti Topcoat but I couldn't get my hands on it anywhere, so I picked this Barry M one up on a whim just to see what it was like and I have fallen in love! I think it's gorgeous over Fiji which is a gorgeous baby baby pink- it's almost white it's that light! This combenation has been firmly on my fingers and will be for quite some time!

Sally Handson Insta-Dri
Three nail polishes in one favourites post? Yes yes I know..but it totally is justified! This stuff works miracles! I was originally using Ciate's quick dry fast coat but when I ran out of it I was quickly on the hunt for a replacement! I adore painting my nails but there is nothing worse having to sit there for ages not been able to do anything because your nails are still wet or slightly tacky! This stuff is amazing! It claims it drys in 30seconds! I'd still be abit nervous moving around that quickly so I'd give it at least a minute! But apart from its amazing drying qualities, it leaves amazing shine on my nails and it lasts so long!

Expert Face Brush
I bought this brush while I was in Dublin a couple of weeks ago. I actually bought it with my Boots points so tecnically I got it for free woohoo! I have become obsessed with this brush quite quickly, I literally use it for everything! I use it for my foundation, my blush (both cream & powder) my contouring and for powdering under my eyes! Such a handy brush to have! I orignally bought it because I thought it would be similar to the buffing brush, it's not but it's still amazing!

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
I bought this in a Blog sale from the lovely Lottie. I had been eyeing this up for ages and I thought instead of paying over €30 for it and I might end up hating it, I bought it from her to see what it would be like. I have to say I absolutely love it! I am a big primer user and I would try to use it nearly everyday! This is such a gorgeous lightweight primer, it sinks into your skin lovely and it really has helped my make up last all day!

MAC Twinks
This was one of the first ever MAC eyeshadows I bought. I bought it for its sheer beauty in the pan. It's a gorgeous plum/brown shimmer eyeshadow. To tell you the truth after I got this I kind of regretted it because it was such a bold colour I thought I would never get away with it! But having played around with it in the past month I have grown to love it and I actually like the way it looks on my eyes! I would wear it in the outer corner of my eye and sometimes in the crease just for some definiation!

Nivea Hydro Care Lipbalm
This is a bit of a random addition to my favourites but I have had such chapped and dry lips the past couple of weeks and this has been my life saver! I've literally used it every day and it has helped stop the nasty dryness! Also its so compact I can just throw it in my handbag or coat pocket and be gone!

Rimmel Apocalips Celestial
I've done a whole review on the colours here but the one that I have worn the most and loved the most has been Celestial. It's a gorgeous muted pink, a slightly rosy shade. Perfect for everyday! I still can't believe how amazingly pigmented the Apocalips are! Since I wrote my blog post I bought Big Bang and I'm loving that too!

Shu Uemera Eyelash Curlers
I finally got my hands on these this month and I have fallen in love with them! I was debating for along time on whether €24 was a crazy amount of money to spend on eyelash curlers, and some of you may think it still is. But these eyelash curlers have changed how my eye make up looks! They are literally miracle workers! They widen up my eye completely and because I have a hooded eyelid it's quite hard to see my eyelashes some times but after using these my eyelashes seem miles longer than they are and paired with my They're Real mascara it's a match made in heaven!

So those are my Febuary favourites! I hope you enjoyed them! Let me know what your favourite products of this month are!
