February Favourites

I cannot believe it’s March already, I feel like such a parrot saying this but the past months have really flown by. In less than 50 days I will have been at my full time job for a year, which feels insane, but I’m still so excited – I also can’t wait for the weather to start getting warmer (cold is not my thing!)

Anyway, I really struggled for favorites this month as I spent far more on clothes for my holiday, so I have a small selection this week:

Chanel Chance
Everyone and their mum knows this perfume and has an opinion on this, so I won’t bore you too much by going on and on. I’m trying to use this up, some days I like it and some times I don’t. It’s quite a grown up scent and whether I like it depends on my mood, but I’m surprised I’ve been wearing most of the month!

Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Natural – Sun Power
I’ve talked about this so much, so I don’t want to go on and on, but its a lovely warm orange toned bronzer and I love it, the dome is no longer in tact which says a lot!

Origins Vita Zing Moisturiser
This is a really lovely moisturiser, I didn’t get on with it at first, but now I love it. It adds so much warmth to my face, and, with it being naturally on the dry side at the moment, it gives a really lovely glowy/dewy finish – which surprisingly I’m really liking!

OPI – Suzie’s a Chocoholic
Got this as a very late birthday present from my best friend, I love it and wore it for the majority of the month before my nails decided to break! (Wahhh! :’@) Its a lovely dark red with slight orange tones to it.

Collection 2000 Cream Puff moisturising lip cream in Powder Puff and MUA Lipstick in Shade 14 – Bare
I’ve been loving these to products both separate and together, I can already tell you that I will repurchase them when I use them up – and I am going to use them up! The lipstick is the perfect nude for my skin tone, not too white, not too pink and not too orange. Just perfect. The “lip creme” as it’s put, is slightly darker than the lipstick, but I still love it! The lipstick was £1 – which is amazing! Especially for the quality (its still quite creamy) and the gloss/lip creme is £2.99! I definitely recommend giving these a go!

Right, favourites over. Off to bed for me! So glad it’s Friday tomorrow, I need a good lie in and chilled out weekend. It’s also payday tomorrow – what will I buy? 😉

P.S A big thank you to Fee at Makeup Savvy (link) for mentioning my blog! I’ve been following her since I started blogging, so that was a really lovely surprise today!

    I've been wanting to try those Collection 2000 Cream Puffs for a little while now – is it sheer or opaque? Beautiful blog 🙂 !xx

      Thank you 🙂 I'd say its quite pigmented, but wears off quite quickly, so you dont get the full effect for a long period of time. x
