February Beauty Favourites


february, beauty, favourites, skincare, makeup, body care


February flew by! It wasn't a great month for me, in fact it was possibly the worst of my life, which is a shame since it's usually one of my favourites with it being my birthday but hey, we'll talk about that another time.

I have five beauty products to share with you this month. My most used, most favourite products. You know, the ones that never quite leave your dressing table as you're reaching for them pretty much everyday!

I have a gorgeous lippy, the best body butter in the world, two eyeshadows and a must have skincare product.

You're welcome.

Alpha H Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid (£33.50 full size / BeautyBay)

I'm a bit late to the party with this little beauty I know. But I was very excited when my friend bought me this mini version for Christmas. 

Liquid Gold is a powerful, resurfacing treatment that promises to firm, diminish wrinkles and sun damage. It tightens pores and gives a brighter, clearer complexion.

Wow. Even after the first use I noticed a massive change in my skin. It most definitely clears, brightens and firms. I now see what all this fuss is about, it's amazing stuff and I'm really enjoying using it!
I use it as part of my evening skincare routine, every other day, in place of my toner. It also recommends not to use a cream afterwards for a really powerful, overnight facial treatment, so I do that now and then too. You need this stuff in your life!

Blankety is one of my all time favourite lipsticks, ever. It's been a firm favourite for a fair few years, but I've definitely been using it a lot this month (as you can probably tell!), it's such a good all round colour that suits any makeup look. 

It's a soft pink beige shade from their amplified creme range. MAC lipsticks are most definitely my favourites, they're creamy, vanilla scented, non drying and long lasting. I quite possibly own most of their nude shades! 

I've been wearing this non-stop, every day lately. During the day time and out in the evening too. It's a gorgeous colour, don't you think?

I have two eyeshadows to share with you, as I have been using the both of them, usually together, lots of this month. The first is Amber Lights by MAC, a beautiful copper shade with a frost shimmer.  I've used this shadow in many different ways, for everyday looks and for nights out. Sometimes as a transition / crease colour, sometimes blended all over the lid and sometimes as a little pop of colour in the outer corners.  

It makes a change for me to go back to separates as I usually just reach for a palette, but these MAC shadows are super pigmented and blend nicely so has been a firm favourite this month.

The Body Shop Cocoa Butter Body Butter 

Now I'm going to need a moment here. Whilst trying to find the link for this amazing here product, it has come to my attention that The Body Shop seem to have discontinued their cocoa butter range. I repeat, NO MORE COCOA BUTTER! Are you kidding me?? I've been using this stuff for years and years! My Dad & Step Mum buy me cocoa butter goodies from The Body Shop every Christmas! I can't believe they've taken this away from me. Rude. 

I love the body butters from these guys, they absorb easily, are super moisturising and the fragrance lasts all day long. My skin is pretty dry and I suffer from KP so I need a really good, nourishing moisturiser and The Body Shop body butters are my all time favourites. Cocoa Butter was always my go to and I'm truly gutted they've discontinued it!

MICA Bella Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow in Deep Secrets (£13.46)

I understand this brand has been since rebranded Mica Beauty. This is a beautiful, loose shimmer shadow in a golden brown shade. I've often packed this into my outer corner, or even blended all over for an every day look, it's so smooth and easy to use.

Their mineral makeup promises to be crease free, long lasting and gentle, being free of preservatives chemicals, dyes or talcs.  It is the only product I own from Mica Beauty but I'm very impressed, this shadow is a beauty!

  2. I am loving all of your choices, I have heard really good things about the Liquid Gold but haven't got around to trying it yet. I love a good MAC lipstick too and their nudes are just gorgeous! I recently got a few NYX lip products, they are just as good but so cheap!
