January & February Favourites!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013
Here are my January favourites first, I know it is very late but I wanted to fit my January and February favourites together. 
1. Laura Mercier Lip Glace (Sweetheart): Firstly a gorgeous lip gloss from Laura Mercier. I am usually a lipstick kind of girl but since I bought an amazing value Laura Mercier set (£12 in the spaceNK sale, link here to my haul). The colour is gorgeous on the lips, it make my lips look fuller and smooth - it glosses over dry areas so well. Love it!

2. Simple Rich Moisturiser: I have been using this moisturiser for years, I have gone through about five bottles of this stuff - I love it although if my skin is dry then I will use another moisturiser but this is great for everyday, especially in the summer. 

3. Kiko Anti-age foundation: I received a Kiko package on Christmas eve and this was one of the things I ordered. I have been using it on and off since then, as I have been trying out other foundations but I do really like this product. I have the shade '01 peach rose' which is not my perfect shade but it is quite good. It is so smooth and silky and it applies really well. If you want a fill review of this product, or any of the products featured, just leave a comment!

4. Clinique Airbrush Concealer: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this concealer! I received this as it was a free gift with purchase and I adore this product. I illuminates and covers really well - although it doesn't cover my dark circles completely (nothing will do that!) but it is a fantastic concealer!
Here are my favourites for the month of February!

1. ELF Tone Correcting Concealer: I have been switching between the Clinique air brush concealer and the ELF concealer this month. I love the clinique concealer and I love this. The elf concealer has very light coverage but it is really moisturising! And the shade is a fantastic match for my paler than pale skin tone!

2. Real Techniques Expert Face Brush: I have bee using this brush for my foundations for the past four months or so I love this brush. The paddle shape allows foundation to glide on so quickly and easily and it blends so well.

3. Vichy Eau Thermale: I received this in my Birchbox this month and I have been using it ever since! I have been using this as a toner and as a setting spray. I find that if my makeup looks a bit caky or if it has emphasised some dryness, then a good spray or this onto my makeup and it really help!

4. Illamasqua Blush Brush: I love this brush, it is quite expensive at around £28 but it is worth it! It makes applying contour and bronzer so quick and easy. The bristles are very smooth and soft. It is the perfect shape, thickness and density for contouring.

5. Clinique AirBrush Concealer: Again this is in my favourite for the month of January and February I have been liking this although I do find that if you apply too much then it can look a bit caky.

6. Yves Rocher Sexy Plump Mascara: A favourite mascara of the moment and possible of all time! I love this mascara, I received the sample tube from a beauty box I think and loved it from the first time I used it. It makes my lashes look fuller, longer, black but natural. Love it, I wish they made a waterproof version though, then I could use it daily!

    1. I just realized my mom has the Vichy Eau Thermale but the bottle didn't give any instructions, from what a sticker on it didn't cover, so I wasn't sure how/what to use it for but you cleared that up so thanks!
