I’m not really sure where February has gone, it feels like I’ve blinked and its over but hopefully March brings with it some sunshine and puts a stop to this endless rain! February is one of my favourite months: its my birthday which means lots of wine, cake and time off work! I got to spend a weekend with my favourite people and a much needed week at home seeing the family. My blog reached 100 followers which is incredible and I can’t thank you all enough for your support! As the month of love its safe to say there are a lot of products I’ve fallen for this month and here are my top picks for the month.
Bioderma was a recent purchase after my L’Oreal Micellar Solution ran out (a lot quicker than I anticipated) so I opted to trial something different. I only purchased a 250ml bottle and I’ve used this everyday since the start of the month and I still have over half a bottle left! This stuff is incredible, there was no oily residue left like the L’Oreal offering and the bottle allows for easier pouring so there isn’t as much product wastage. I find this removes my make up with minimal effort, just a quick swipe and my skin is clear ready for a cleanse. Its safe to say I will be repurchasing this for years to come!
Originally I received a sample of the POREfessional in my January birchbox and immediately fell in love with this primer. With its velvet smooth finish and texture, this left my make up looking flawless and photo ready! I haven’t tried this on the top of foundation as I find that a bit of a strange idea but I’ve loved using this underneath to achieve the flawless finish. Luckily I received a full size of this for my birthday in the Benefit POREfect kit but I would say this is definitely worth the price tag.
I recently reviewed the Revlon Highlighting Palette but this had to make an appearance in my monthly favourites. I have literally used this everyday since I bought it. I love how easy the colour is to build up and the overall finish of the product is not too sheer or glittery. I’ve been using my Real Techniques Stippling Brush to build up the colour and I’ve found one swish is enough to leave my cheeks with the bronzed glow I love. I will 100% be purchasing the Rose Glow palette come payday.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation is an old favourite which I’ve recently rekindled my romance with. To be perfectly honest I don’t know why I ever stopped using this foundation I love it so much. Its easy to build up and the coverage is light to medium depending how thin you apply with the finish being a dewy, radiant glow. I’ve been using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush from the core collection set to buff in the product for maximum coverage. This remains my favourite foundation of all time with such a natural finish it leaves my skin looking incredibly flawless.
Finally the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms which I’ve had a bit of a love affair with since they were released. With only Unapologetic and Mischievous missing from my collection, its safe to say I am obsessed with these. They are so pigmented and wearable and for a clumsy oaf like me they are a dream to apply. I love the fresh, minty scent they carry and the matte finish is just spot on. Revlon have seriously hit the nail on the head with these! My favourites at the moment have to be Elusive and Sultry – both quite pinky shades which are so so gorgeous on!
