February Favourites

Hi everyone,
This is just going to be a list of things I have been using in February that I have been loving so enjoy!!
Frontcover Rainbow Eyes Reborn Palette
I finally got my hands on this thanks to my lovely mum! I am seriously in love with the amount of gorgeous colours. My favourites at the moment are Pink Lemonade, Blush and Clover for daytime looks. A little tip though is to not use the brushes that come with the palette, I am using sponge applicators with these as the shadow applies much more pigmented with these!!
Maybelline Dream Creamy Foundation
This is my new favourite foundation; I can't believe how much I love it. It's such a gorgeous texture and gives your skin a natural dewy finish. It's just gorgeous! The only thing is it runs out so quickly but that is not a good enough reason in my book not to repurchase!
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
I just use a tiny bit of this on my T-Zone area to give these a matte finish whilst the rest of my skin is dewy. This foundation combination is the best I have ever tried, I am just so happy with it - it's taken me a while but I finally think my skin is looking as good as it can!
Primark Ta Ta For Now Concealer
I bought this quite a while back and didn't use it for a while as I don't have too much of a problem with dark circles but I have recently just been using this to brighten up my eyes and it gives an amazing effect. They don't stock makeup in my local Primark but I hope that when I get to one that does they still stock this as it is really incredible for the price!
No 7 Skin Illuminator in Peach
I bought this with a No 7 voucher so it only cost me £5.50 and it is so good. It gives the ultimate dewy finish and it is such a gorgeous warm colour. I put this on under foundation or powder so I don't look too shiny!
Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder
This is the best bronzer I have ever used. It's the one in the chocolate like packaging and it is the perfect bronze colour without looking orange or muddy. It just warms up the skintone and gives a non-shimmery finish!
Natural Collection Blush in Sweet Cheeks
This blush is such a gorgeous colour, it's not too pink or plum colour it's somewhere in between. I think this was £1.95 and for that price it is amazing and so pigmented. I would definitely recommend this shade and think it would suit most skintones!
Sleek Inkpot
This is Sleek's gel eyeliner which I have done a review on... I have used it every day since I got it, it's just so amazing and stays put all day. It is suitable for daywear but is buildable enough to be used at night too!
Rimmel Max Volume Flash Mascara
This is my favourite daytime mascara. It actually really thickens your lashes without clumping. I love the pink packaging as well, if I tell the truth it was one of the main factors in the decision to buy this mascara but luckily my love of all things hot pink paid off!
Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara
So this is my night-time mascara. It is the best mascara I have ever used and just delivers exactly what it says it will; a Falsh Lash effect! I wouldn't wear this to work purely because my lashes do look so thick and long when I'm wearing this and I don't want to waste it on work!
Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash & Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturiser
This brand is amazing!! I cannot rave about it enough, my skin feels and looks glowing! I seriously recommend any of you with the occasional breakout and slightly sensitive skin to get these - they will refresh your skin just in time for spring!
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub
This is another skincare product that is making my face feel amazing at the moment. Yes I still have blackheads but they have reduced and I feel like my pores are less noticeable so I'm happy! I'm definitely going to try more from this range!
Collection 2000 Love Your Lips Lipgloss in No 6 Adore
This is the perfect lipgloss; a gorgeous natural colour with just a hint of red, non sticky and it stays put for a good amount of time. And it's pretty cheap as well. I really recommend this!
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in No 600 Soft Coral
Who knew coral colours suited me. I love this colour as it's not too bright but does stand out and looks a bit different. And this lipstick is just so moisturising, there is no need for lipgloss or balm over the top. A definite must have!
Lush Sweet Lips Lip Scrub
This is basically a sugar scrub that really exfoliates and softens the lips. My lips are in so much better condition since buying this it cannot be a coincidence. I think I will definitely be a repurchase!
Botanics Soothing Eye Makeup Remover
The best eye makeup remover I have ever used. It is so soothing (as the title suggests) and gentle on your eyes so you don't have to pull. This is a must have for maintaining gorgeous skin!
I hope you like my little rundown of my favourites. Let me know what yours are. Have you got any of the products I mentioned here? Let me know what you think of them!
Love you all lots,

Frances xx

  1. Yeah, I really like Sleek stuff, its amazing for the price. Have you tried Eyeko? You can buy it online and the quality is really good,especially the mascaras. Cute packaging, and they always run good offers.
    I've been trying the Primark TaTa For Now concealer too! But not as impressed as you - perhaps because I do have an issue with dark circles and the colour isn't yellow-toned enough. Still, their make up is great for the price! I've been loving their 'Happy Couple Blush/Bronze Duo' so see if you can get your hands on that! xx
