February Favourites

Here are the products that I've been loving this month...

Bobbi Brown 

I really needed to get some new brushes and decided to try a new brand and invest in Bobbi Brown.  I wanted brushes that were going to be versatile so picked four from the range that I thought I would get most use out of.

Sheer Powder brush £30

This brush I have so far been using for highlight and contouring.  It is fairly compact so perfect for dusting a little highlight on the cheekbones and sweeping through the hollows of the cheeks to contour.

Eye Blender £25.50

I normally use MAC's 217 to blend eyeshadow but find the bristles are quite course.  The bristles on this are a lot softer and so nicer to use, particularly on clients.  It is also perfect for dusting highlight down the bridge of the nose and cupids bow.

Touch up £24.50

This brush is designed to 'touch up' foundation or concealer but is also great for blending shadow under the eyes.

Eye Smudge £24.50

Bobbi's 'eye smudge' brush is perfect for blending shadow through the eye socket and also under the eye area.

Maybelline Gel Eyeliner £7.99

I have recently started using this again and find it much easier to use than liquid liner.  It comes with a brush but I use my own fine angled brush with it.  If you use MAC's gel liner but find it dries up far too quickly then this is a great alternative.

L'Oreal Paris 'Color Riche' lipstick in 'Julianne's Red' £6.99

I love L'Oreal's Colour Riche lipsticks.  They are completely matt, highly pigmented and long lasting, which is amazing for only £6.99.  They are available in various shades of Red and Nude's. Julianne's red is a beautiful bright red and more importantly is great for redheads which is why I picked it.  I paired it with MAC's lipliner in 'Cherry'

Dior Diorific High Fashion Lipstick in 'Delicate Shock' £27.50

I adopted this lippy from my Auntie and absolutely love it.  I've been trying to wear more nude lipsticks but sometimes struggle to find the perfect shade.  I have been loving this as it still carries a bit of colour without being too washed out.  It consists of two tones, One being a lovely creamy matt and the other a pretty gold shimmer. I paired it with MAC's lip liner in 'Spice'.
