Yet another month has absolutely flown by without me even realising, so it’s time for another beauty favourites post! This month I have been super busy with work and getting ready to move, so I haven’t really had time to try anything new or rediscover anything and I’ve been pretty much stuck in a beauty rut! There are a few products that I’ve found myself reaching for more over the past few weeks for various reasons though, so let’s dive right in and get down to business!
Radox Nourish Bath Soak: Santa bought me three big bottles of this Radox bubble bath in a range of scents and I have been loving using them, especially this ginger and shea butter one. There’s nothing better than having a nice long soak in a hot bath after a busy day, and these makes tonnes of bubbles, smell amazing and leave my skin soft.
Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara: I picked this up a while back but didn’t really get round to using it until a few weeks ago. When it comes to mascara I tend to just use any as I have fairly long thick lashes anyway, so don’t feel the need to splash out on anything special. This gives a really nice curl and blackest of black colour without feeling heavy. I really like the rubber brush too as it means I can get product right to the edges easily.
The Body Shop Hair Chalk: You probably saw my review on this, and if you did, you’ll already know how much I love this! It’s such a quick and easy way to add some colour to hair without the need of dyes and is really affordable at just a fiver!
Redken Real Control Intense Renewal Mask: I’ve been suffering from very dry hair lately and had to have a lot of dead ends cut off at the hairdressers a couple of weeks ago, so I’ve been trying to look after it a lot more as of late. I love this mask and have used it for a while now as a deep conditioning treatment once a week to get some moisture back in and keep it looking soft and nourished.
Avon Super Extend Eyeliner: My niece recently started working as an Avon rep, and I actually used to be one myself, so knowing how good their products were I decided to order a few bits from her. First up was this eyeliner which I have been loving wearing. It’s a felt nip nib and is so easy to use. It’s has quite a long, fine point on it which is a lot more precise than other felt tip style liners I’ve used in the past. It also has some awesome staying power and stays put all day long without smudging.
Avon Perfect Kiss Lipstick in ‘Kiss Me Pink’: Another item from my Avon order than I’ve been using a lot lately is this lipstick, which I stupidly photographed with the lid on – duh! You can see a swatch of it here. It’s a lovely wearable pink which is half way between a baby pink and a hot pink, making it perfect for day time. It’s a really nice satin consistency too and is really pigmented too. I’ll definitely be trying more colours from this range.
Lola Kabuki Brush: A recent addition to my make up brush collection is this Brocha Kabuki from the Lola make up range at M&S. I’m really enjoying using this for applying my setting powder after my foundation, and it’s also the perfect size to throw in my make up bag and take away with me for touch ups. It’s super soft and washes really nicely too. I’m not usually a big fan of Kabuki brushes but this one has really impressed me!
Illamasqua Blush in ‘Nymph’: This is one of my all time favourite blushes and has featured in my favourites posts a couple of times in the past. I’ve been reaching for this one a lot lately after forgetting about it for a while, and it’s still just as good as I remember! It’s a gorgeous warm candy pink that flatters my pale complexion nicely. If you’ve got fair skin like me and are looking for a pink blush I would definitely recommend this one!
There we have it, another month of favourites done and dusted! I’m hoping to give some new products a whirl throughout March, so if there’s anything you’d recommend for me to try then let me know in the comments below!
