DHC Virgin Olive Oil Swabs* – At first I thought these would be a little gimmicky & not anything to write home about , but I was so wrong. If like me you wear liquid liner & are terrible at getting both eyes to look the same, or if you make a little mess when applying mascara then these swabs are so handy to have. They come individually wrapped & look like cotton buds (but they’re magic cotton buds) so if you’re travelling you can take a couple with you. You get 50 in a box & they’re double ended. One swipe with these and your liner or any mess that you’re trying to clean up has disappeared. No rubbing or tugging literally one light swipe & you’re good to go.
RMK Vintage Candy Cheeks in 01 Candy Pink* – I use this as a highlighter as it’s a little too shimmery to be a blush. It gives my cheekbones a pretty peachy glow & it look gorgeous when the light hits your face. I think the packaging is beautiful, it’s rose gold & comes with the a little mirror inside too. So elegant. I posted about the Vintage Sweets Collection a few weeks ago. It is limited edition so be quick if you have your eye on anything.
Burberry Body Body Mist- I haven’t tried a fragrance from Burberry before & I have no idea why, I have been using this one since December & simply adore it. The Body Mist is a lighter version of the iconic Burberry Body fragrance. I am TERRIBLE at describing scents so this is what Burberry has to say about it
‘Top notes of fresh green absinthe, illuminating elegant peach and refined freesia. Floral bouquet of natural rose absolute and iris blends gently with subtle warm tones of sandalwood to form the heart notes. Woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, sensual amber and musk compose the base.’
Because it is a body mist it’s the perfect scent to wear during the day, it lasts a good amount of time. The packaging is beautiful too, the frosted glass bottle is tall & slim with a rose gold lid. It looks pretty on my vanity.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rust – I have three of these NYX pencils but this is the one I use the most. I’m a big fan of cream shadows & find these jumbo crayons the easiest to apply. No dipping fingers into pots, you simply glide them over your eyelid and either use a brush to blend the product in or I find using my ring finger just as effective. This Rust shade is stunning metallic red toned bronze, it looks so pretty on. These never crease on my lids & they make a great base for powder shadow, especially if you want your eyeshadow to look more pigmented & last longer. NYX is so affordable & now stocked in many NEXT stores in the UK.
OGX Hydrate + Defrizz Kukui Oil Anti-Frizz Hydrating Oil* – Earlier this year I reviewed the Kakui Oil Shampoo & Conditioner and I have been using this leave in oil alongside them. This range uses the natural nut oil which is hydrating and locks in moisture as well as leaving the hair glossy and lightweight. l like to spray on to damp hair & it leaves my locks feeling so soft, it never looks greasy. If like me you have quite thick wavy frizzy hair you will love it, it really calms fly aways & makes my wavy hair look so healthy. It gives it bounce without the frizz. Its a wonderful addition to my haircare routine.
Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Bronze Palette – I have the Little Mix palette which is similar but when I saw that Collection had released 3 more palettes I had to get one. I am a neutral palette ADDICT! This Nude Bronze palette is beautiful and for an affordable brand the colours are pigmented and very good quality. I have swatched the 6 colours below & all apart from the first swatch which is a very first light cream shade have shown up pretty well. All the shadows have some shimmer in them, so if you want a more matte palette then the Nude Palette might be the one for you. The colours are easy to blend & have a little fall out but nothing that tapping your brush off won’t solve.
All three of these new palettes retail at £3.99 & I think that’s incredibly good value for money. If you have bought any of them let me know what one you went for & how you’re getting on with it.
So February was over in the blink of an eye. Let me know what you have been loving this past month.
