February Favourites

Hello everyone!

I'm showing you the products I've been loving this month and using almost on daily basis.
I'm loving those and I would definitely recommend you to try them.
You can see a lot of lipsticks here. This is because I'm addicted to those. Lipsticks are essential part in my make up. We all like when our eye shadows are vibrant and last long, don't we? I do anyway. I also like when my lips are pigmented and stay like that for ages. It is also important for me to find the right shade of lipstick to compliment the overall look.

Anyways, this month I've been loving nude & neutral lipstick shades. Even though neutral colours are pretty simple and sometimes you think they don't give you much colour etc. For some reason wearing these shades I actually thought I looked very nice. Though I like to wear bright colours myself, I also like to enhance my natural beauty and feel attractive. These shades are just great for everyday wear, when you don't have a lot of time for make up or fantasy and are great for complimenting the natural beauty. 

It's not only the colours I've been in love with, it;s also their formula's. 
I've been loving matte or semi-matte lipstick formula lately, especially for neutral shades. I just find them looking very natural and attractive at the same time. It is just difficult to describe the amazement of how good neutral matte shades can actually look. Matte shades can be quite drying, so be aware of that. I don't have problems with them personally.

OK, now the list of the lipsticks I currently LOVE:
  1. MAC Viva Glam II - gorgeous pink nude with an edge in my opinion, my favourite amongst them all, I feel natural and sexy wearing it, though many found this shade unwearable, so it makes it quite a difficult shade to pull off. I would suggest to try it first.
  2. Illamasqua Test - this makes my lips look so full and pretty, this is more a soft neutral pink shade, absolutely gorgeous lipstick, recommend it to everyone!
  3. MAC Honeylove - is another nude pink shade, that is warmer than Viva Glam II, but still gorgeous, looks extremely natural, looks great with many looks.
  4. MAC Brave- this is a beautiful warm sophisticated neutral pink shade. This shade looks very feminine and romantic.
  5. MAC A Perfect Day - is a little lighter than honeylove but still is a great nude shade. It makes my lips lighter without washing out. It's a shame this is limited edition, would love it to be available all the time.
Soap&Glory  SHOW GOOD FACE 2in1 skin energising foundation & primer in the shade- Fairest of them all
I've been loving this product lately, mainly because this foundation has such a natural finish almost like no foundation at all.. It looks just flawless..The only problem with this is covering spots. I have to use a good concealer with it. Other than that it's perfect and lasts a long time, does get a bit oily on my T zone at the end of the day, but it happens with any foundation I use, even those that suppose to control oiliness.

Illamasqua Freak fragrance
I have a few samples of this from my orders from Illamasqua website.
I love this perfume.
It's difficult to describe the sent, but this is definitely the type of sent I normally go for. It comes across as a dark, mysterious but still feminine and sophisticated sent. I can wear this day and night. This could be my signature sent.. but I still have to get hold of a bottle.. I hope one day it will be mine :)

 VIVO baked blush in Cinnamon Glow & Baked bronzer Healthy Glow in shade 3
They remind me of MAC mineralized finished. I think they give similar sort of effect. I love Cinnamon Glow colour, I wouldn't mind to find a matte or a cream blush with similar colour. I usually use this over other blusher to give a pinkier glow and bronzer gives a really nice healthy glow to the face. I absolutely love the Healthy Glow bronzer and I use almost every time. I think Healthy glow is the lightest bronzer shade from VIVO. It's gorgeous. Definitely check those out in Tesco's :)

Clearasil Spot Clearing Cream(vanishing)
The reason why I've been loving this product this months is because it helped me with my spot situation. My skin has improved with this and it is so easy to use. I applies like a moisturiser without drying the skin. This is a good product I enjoyed using this months.

I hope that wasn't too much info for you :)
Let me know your Feb favourites!
