Monthly Favourites | February


It feels like such a long time since I did a favourites post - the last one I did was my 2015 favourites as last month I didn't feel I was loving enough new products to share. I always want my favourites posts to be full of products I really do love and would recommend you guys to try so I only do them when I have enough to share. With that being said, I'm excited to be posting about my February favourites as I've been trying and loving lots of new beauty goodies!


Elemis Nourishing Omega-rich Cleansing Oil; My favourite skincare brand is definitely Elemis - I love every single one of their products I've tried and the pro-collagen cleansing balm is my all time favourite cleansing product. Well, it was, until this new cleansing oil came along as it's equally as amazing as the balm but more ideal for use in the mornings. The cleansing balm is quite thick and a great one to use in the evening to remove the days makeup but I don't really need something so heavy in the mornings so the oil is perfect as it feels much lighter on the skin but still leaves it feeling really clean and fresh.


Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara; I can never normally tell the difference between high street and high end mascaras and often find high end mascaras to be a total waste of money but this one from Too Faced is on a whole other level. It has a thick and fluffy brush that picks up every lash and makes them look really long and fluttery. My favourite thing about this mascara is that it doesn't go clumpy which is one thing I HATE about certain mascaras. There's nothing worse than mascara that feels heavy on the eyes whereas this one feels completely weightless.

Too Faced Melted Chocolate lipstick; I'm not usually a fan of nude lips but this Too Faced Melted Chocolate lipstick in the shade 'Chocolate Honey' has completely changed my opinion and I've been wearing it almost every day both day and night. It's the most beautiful brown nude shade and looks amazing with a dark eye and bronzed skin. I usually find nude lipsticks wash me out which is the reason I don't like them but because of the brown tones in this one, that's not the case at all. The formula is amazing too - it's SO pigmented, it feels really creamy on application then dries to what  I'd describe as a semi-matte finish (matte without looking or feeling dry) and is super long-lasting! I can put this on first thing in the morning and it'll last for hours without the need for a top up.

Urban Decay NAKED lipgloss; I'm sure I've featured this lipgloss in a favourites post before but I've been using it every day so I couldn't not include it in this post. This is the lipgloss that is always in my handbag - it's my go-to for every day wear and I just love everything about it. The shade is 'Sesso' which I believe is limited edition as it was part of the On The Run palette but its a beautiful rose pink 'my lips but better' kind of shade - perfect for every day and one that will suit any skin tone. I love the texture too as it feels very nourishing and creamy on the lips and isn't sticky at all.


Madamme La La tan; I have to be honest, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to fake tanning. I find it such a mission and usually can't be bothered doing it, especially at this time of the year when I'm usually wearing lots of layers and not showing much skin. However, tanning does always make me feel more confident when I've done it so I've been trying to make a bit more effort with it recently and the Madamme La La has been my go-to tan. It's a mousse formula and really easy to blend onto the skin. The colour is lovely too - it's very natural but provides a deep tan after only one application. It smells pretty nice too which is always a bonus!!


Paco Rabanne Olympea Perfume; I say it every time but I am USELESS at describing scents so all I can say about this perfume is that I absolutely love it, it smells amazing and has been my go-to fragrance since I bought it just after Christmas. As well as smelling amazing, I also love the packaging. Rose gold gets me every time. Here's how the scent is described online - 'a unique olfactory adventure, at the crossroads between the sensuality of salty vanilla accord and the freshness of floral notes'. Take from that what you will, haha!


Eylure express lashes; I did a full blog post about these lashes here so I won't go into too much detail but I'm so in love with them so they just had to be in my monthly favourites. I wear lashes every time I go on a night out as I love the way they make my lashes look so the fact these ones are pre-glued make the process of applying them SO much easier. You simply remove them from the packaging and place them onto your lash line. Fuss free, mess free and so quick! I can't see myself going back to traditional lashes now as these are much more convenient, look just as good and stay put too! If you're a lash lover, you need to try them!

Have you tried any of these products? What have you been loving lately?!
