February Favourites | 2016

It feels like this month flew by, even though it's the shortest month of the year it definitely should not feel so short. I haven't had too much time trying out new things but I'm here to show you a few things I've been loving this month anyway.



Provoke Touch of Sliver Brightening Shampoo
I actually bought this shampoo during the summer when my hair felt really dull and have been using it on and off since then, so not that much. I recently re-dyed my hair, so it's basically blonde now, and decided to try it again since I had it to keep the blonde bright in my hair. It's very pigmented purple and leaves anything it touches with a purple stain so definitely keep it away from anything other than your hair. I feel like it does work really well and my hair does have more of a bright shine after using it. The best part about it is that you only have to use a tiny bit of it every time you wash your hair so it's really handy and you don't waste it quickly at all.

Essence Long Lasting Lipsticks
I've been loving the Essence range of lipsticks lately, they're not the best quality but for some reason I'm really liking that right now. There's only one in the picture above but I've been loving the shades 'Come Naturally' and 'On the Catwalk' which is the one above. They're not very pigmented but I like the really subtle look about them recently I've fallen back in love with minimal effort things again and I like these lipsticks for just that look, plus they're super cheap and affordable. The downside is they don't stay on too long but I like to use them as more of a lip balm/butter rather than a lipstick. 


Maybelline New York Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
This has been one of my favourite products over the last few months and I keep forgetting to post about it. I had loved the Babylips products in the past so I kinda knew I would love this product. This primer is for 'smooth, poreless looking skin' and I feel like it does make my pores look smaller and skin clearer. I use a tiny amount of it and rub it in the area around my nose, where most of my pores are. It makes your skin ridiculously soft, literally like a baby, as it suggests. I use it for priming my skin before makeup everyday and I do feel a difference with and without using it. It helps keep my makeup on all day and also helps blend makeup easier as my skin is smoother. It's definitely worth a try. 

Topshop Nail Varnish's 
Summer is on it's way and I've been feeling the need to buy more bright coloured nail varnish as I only usually wear dark colours. I picked two very pastel summer colours up in the shades 'Tickle Me..', the pink and 'Breakfast Club', the yellow. They're really light shades and need at least three coats before the colour looks as it does in the bottle. I love the yellow one the most as it's a matte shade and I'm really loving matte nails, even though my nails are a disgrace. I find that they chip a lot but I'm bad at keeping nail varnish on for ages anyway so it's hard to tell if it's just me or not.


Urban Decay Eyeshadow 'Sin' 
My last favourite is Urban Decays eyeshadow 'Sin' which was gifted to me by a friend. I feel like I have this eyeshadow in another palette somewhere but I've not checked. I've been so minimalist with my makeup this month that I've rarely worn eyeshadow or eyeliner, college life. This eyeshadow is so easy to pop all over your lid minimally and easily and still look like you've put more effort into it, perfect. It's not very noticeable on the eyes but adds shimmer.

My last favourites are music and film and this month I've been loving, obsessed whatever, with Zayn Malik's 'PillowTalk'. I've not been a One Direction fan in the past but maybe I could be a fan of them all once they've gone solo, looks good so far. Plus Gigi Hadid is in the music video and she looks stunning. My other music favourite is Disney, which is usual for me, I've been listening to the soundtrack to the Hunchback of Notre Dame way too much. It's such a good movie and I listened to a female version of 'Hellfire' and got completely stuck into the soundtrack. The composition of the whole soundtrack is so beautiful, it's mixed with old style church dies irae music and current holy songs and movie soundtrack beats and it's just mixed so well. 
The movie I've been loving this month is Zoolander, I saw it for the first time this month. I didn't think I'd like it I don't usually like 'funny' movies like that but I genuinely did enjoy it surprisingly.
