HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!

I have been dying to write about my February favourites for ages. As soon as I started using the products, I was instantly in love.

So let’s get straight into it, below is a picture of everything I am going to talk about today. If you like what you see…keep reading.

Now I know there are 3 eyeshadow palettes there…but I couldn’t narrow them now. I have used all of them throughout February and I couldn’t pick between them.

MUA Burning Embers Palette – £8.00 

17093922_10158354316060319_89137801_n

I saw this palette on Emma’s Rectangle who I follow on YouTube and she said this was a close dupe to the Anastasia Beverley Hills Modern Renaissance palette. Now I can’t compare the two, as I don’t have the MR palette, but this palette is gorgeous in it’s own right.

Pros: 

  • Great pigmentation
  • Good range of colours
  • Sturdy and attractive packaging
  • Good value for money
  • With the amount of colours, this would be good for travelling as you can create so many varied looks

Cons 

  • I had to buy it online as it wasn’t available in my store
  • Not enough matte colours for my liking
  • The glitter eyeshadows aren’t as pigmented but with Fix + it’s great
  • The first two colours in the palette (top left) I can’t use, they don’t do anything for me, they are too light

I Heart Makeup Chocolate Vice Palette – £7.99 

17035262_10158354316155319_11352179_n

This is the second palette I have bought from the I Heart Makeup range, this isn’t my favourite out of the two I have, but this one is still good.

Pros: 

  • Good value for money
  • Great pigmentation on both the mattes and glitter shadows
  • Love the pink colours, great for spring

Cons: 

  • Too many glitter shadows, even some of the mattes have a hint of glitter to them
  • Not keen on the packaging, it’s sturdy, but I don’t like the black case

I Heart Makeup Salted Caramel Palette – £7.99 

17078489_10158354316290319_622349011_n

This is the first palette I bought from this brand and I instantly fell in love with it. I have talked about it in a previous post, but this is probably my go to palette at the moment. Out of the 3 palettes I have mentioned, this is probably the one I would recommend…if I had to pick…HAD TO.

Pros: 

  • Perfect colour selection for me, full of warm toned eyeshadows
  • Fantastic pigmentation in all colours
  • Smells gorgeous
  • Can create so many different looks

Cons: 

  • The only con I have is the colour ‘Cake’ the second from the left on the second row. It’s chalky, it’s not a nice colour at all and on application it crumbles away

Rimmel Brow This Way Eyebrow Kit – £3.99

17077915_10158354316345319_801677339_n

This is an oldie but a goodie!! This is something I’ve had for a long time and stopped using for a while so I could try other products but I have gone back to this and fell in love with it again.

Pros: 

  • Great value for money
  • Easy to use
  • Compact
  • Great to apply
  • If you make a terrible eyebrow mistake, easily fixed and blended away

Cons: 

  • The brushes that come with it, I don’t use but this isn’t the end of the world, minor con
  •  Even though its easy to correct a mistake, they do easily come off…BUT they still last me all day
  • Not keen on the wax, so I just uses the powder

Zoeva 106 Powder Brush – £13.00 

17092300_10158354316430319_782300507_n

I wanted a new powder brush to set my face with that wasn’t too big and this had great reviews on it.

Pros: 

  • Incredibly soft
  • Picks up and distributes products well
  • Even though it’s a big brush, it still can get into the difficult places
  • High quality for a low price
  • Cleans well

Cons: 

  • No cons with this brush as of yet, does what I need it too

New Look Glow Baked Highlighter Powder in Pink Pearls – £7.99 

17078728_10158354316465319_619081862_n

I watched a lot of hauls recently on YouTube and everyone seemed to be checking out the New Look range. I decided to take a little look and blow me away…it was 3 for 2….YAY!!!

Pros: 

  • Great pigmentation
  • Love the pink tone to it, makes a difference to make natural golden ones
  • Soft and not a chunky glitter
  • Very illuminating
  • Good value for money
  • Good size
  • Love the simple packaging, black yet you can see through the top

Cons: 

  • I think it smells like marzipan (I hate marzipan) but not noticeable on the face, only when you smell the pan

Primark PS Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon in Mushroom – £2

17078104_10158354316515319_1647770906_n

While I was in Cornwall, I decided to check out the range in Primark and my friend was wearing on their lipstick crayons, so I had to check out these.

Pros: 

  • My FAVOURITE colour lipstick EVER!! I haven’t seen a colour like this anywhere else and I have nearly used it all
  • AMAZING value
  • Smells like chocolate
  • Creamy formula
  • Not uncomfortable to wear

Cons: 

  • I’m scared to sharpen it as it doesn’t look like it will sharpen well if at all
  • It’s not long lasting, but for £2 I don’t mind re-applying

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – £7.99

17094131_10158354316570319_656263451_n

This is something I see Emma’s Rectangle use on her YouTube on a regular basis and I was in the market for a new mascara, something that makes my eyelashes flutter.

Pros: 

  • Lengthens my lashes
  • Good value for money
  • Separates my lashes well
  • I like the wand

Cons: 

  • Now this is my problem, but I keep getting it on my lid when I apply it. I don’t have this problem with any other mascara, but pretty much every day I manage to do it

Well, that’s it guys, those are my February favourites. I hope you have enjoyed reading, as always, like, comment and follow. Love checking out my followers pages as I love reading my blogs as well as writing them.
