February Favourites

Wow we're in March already! I'm so excited for Spring, a change of season and hopefully weather. But before I start going on about my love for pastel nail polishes, let's go through what I loved in February.

CHANEL Holiday 2013 Ombré Matelassées Eyeshadow Palette in Charming
This is one of my most precious possessions, and not just beauty related. It is so exquisite, I actually kept it in it's perfect little box on my dressing table for almost a year, completely untouched. But this Christmas I wanted to use it, and I'm so glad I did because I love it more now than when it was pristine. 
These five neutral shades are perfect for creating a sultry plumy smokey eye. I actually really enjoy playing with a few different eyeshadow looks with this palette, so I might dedicate an entire post to it.

L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in 376 Cassis Passion
I adore this lipstick - the colour is a perfect dark berry/plum with a hint of raspberry so it's ideal for the transition from Winter to Spring. The formula is lovely and it glides on to the lips without clinging to any dry patches (which I've been suffering with during these cold months!). The lasting power is superb... I recently went to a wedding (watch my Get Ready With Me) I applied this lipstick at 11AM and it was still there well gone midnight - champagne sipping and all!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush This has genuinely changed the way my foundation looks on my skin. I have been a huge fan of the Real Techniques Buffing Brush for quite a while, but there's something about this that's just so - amazing. Perhaps it's the oval shape to the brush head, it just applies foundation so evenly and really works the product into the skin to create a flawless finish.

I love Lush - who doesn't? I think I have been especially loving having bubble baths lately because I've had so many Christmas products and presents to use that I've been having pamper nights 2-3 times a week! Plus, the gorgeous Easter/Spring collection is out now which is my favouriteee so I need to go to Chester and fill my basket up pronto!

L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray Lumiere Supreme Hold
This stuff is seriously awesome. Straight, waves, updo, anything! I've always been a fan of the L'Oreal Elnett hairsprays since I was about 18, but this one in particular is so lovely, it smells like Chanel No5, it doesn't leave my hair crispy, it holds a style all day and it makes my hair super shiny.

Malki's Dead Sea Natural Black Mud Mask Soap
This is great on both body and face. I use it in the shower, rub in my hands to create a thick lather (don't worry - it isn't black!) and massage it all over, leave for 2-3 minutes and rinse off. Pretty standard procedure for any soap - but this leaves my skin sooo nourished and it really does work a deep clean. AND it helps to stimulate blood circulation which (correct me if I'm wrong) battles cellulite!
