February Favourites

February was unintentionally a very spendy month for me. I guess I got a little carried away but I can't deny the fact that I've found a lot of fantastic products and clothing items that I adore, so this month's favourites is a good one.

Una Brennan Cleansing Oil: I am so glad I found this product, and that it works so well for my skin too. I'm always wary when trying new skincare products as to whether they're really working or whether I'm just having a particularly good skin day/week. I feel confident enough though so say that this is really working. It takes my make-up off well and leaves my skin feeling extremely nourished and after using it both morning and night for a couple of weeks, my skin is looking so much brighter and even. At first I thought that £10.99 seemed like a lot of money for it, but you literally need a tiny amount for each use and it's such a huge bottle that it really is worth it in my eyes.

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara: I actually had this mascara when it first came out and liked it but for some reason didn't repurchase it. I was after a new on recently so decided to go back to his, but the waterproof version. I really like the size of the brush as it enable me to get really thick, voluminous lashes and it doesn't smudge at all so it's been great for nights out.

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Powder: If you saw my Soap and Glory haul at the start of the month, you'll know how much I loved the products so I have actually bought a couple more since then. I've been using the Rimmel Stay Matte powder for years now but was feeling a bit fed up so thought I'd try something a bit different. This powder is slightly yellow-toned although applies fairly translucent and does a great job of setting my make-up in place but isn't as matte as the Rimmel. Plus I love the packaging- the compact is light but sturdy and has a great size mirror in side so is definitely worth the price.

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss and Matte Lipstick: I've pretty much been alternating between these two lip products all month. The lipstick if a lovely berry tone that has a creamy matte finish and is great for both day and night. It's long lasting yet doesn't dry up on the lips. The other is a plumping gloss which I adore for nights out. It applies as a sheerer version of what it looks like in the tube. It feels quite thick but is not overly sticky and I like that it's easy to reapply without a mirror. It just makes your lips look glossy and plump, and although it feels incredibly tingly on the lips I'm a big fan!

Statement Earrings: I'm very lazy at times when it comes to wearing earrings and most days I just don't bother but I've recently bought a couple of pairs that I just can't take off because they're something a bit different. The pearl ones are from Dorothy Perkins and they're great because one pearl is a stud with the other hanging from a bar below the ear so they're really interesting and pretty. Secondly is this jeweled ear cuff from Topshop which just clips on to the side of your ear at the top and is great because I can put it through my second lobe piercing and still wear a stud in the other.

New Look: I feel like I have to include New Look as a whole this month as I've just been shopping there so much lately. This new bag for one has been wonderful as it has the choice of short handles on top or a longer strap and is deceptively big so I can fit loads in there. I've also bought a few dresses which I adore and can't wait to take into spring (no doubt they'll be in some outfit posts soon!) and my big batwing cardigan is still my best friend. I've also got my eye on a pair of shoes I plan on treating myself to soon!

  1. I'm desperate to try the Una Brennan cleanaing oil but like you I'm worried it just won't agree with my skin-maybe I'll just have to give it a go!
