February has come and gone and once again I am sitting down to write this post last minute on a Sunday evening. Some things never change. With it being a Monday I will keep this post short and sweet, therefore without further ado I will jump straight into my monthly beauty favourites.
The first product is an oldie and is one which I for the longest time refrained from picking up. The Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curlers have had their fair share of hype and I can honestly say they are worth every single penny. These are typically an everyday beauty staple of mine and I always notice a difference in my lashes when I use them. They add a beautiful curl to my lashes which stays in place throughout the entire day, I honestly cannot fault them and I truly would recommend them to anybody.
As a huge fan of the By Terry Ombre Blackstar’s I found myself looking for a more affordable alternative and I have most certainly found that in the Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick. The shade I have is Rosy Brown which I think is pretty similar to Misty Rock by the ever loved By Terry, if but a fraction of the price. For just under £7 these are a fantastic alternative as they are so easy to blend, they’re super creamy and stay put throughout the day. Of course eventually they do crease, much like every other eyeshadow out there, yet these will last me throughout my working day which is all I really want.
It isn’t often that I sing the praises of a high street foundation these days, the only reason for this being is that I haven’t got any left baring the one above. The L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation rivals most, if not all of my high end foundations as it is a great match for my skin tone, it looks beautiful on and has fantastic coverage. Every morning I opt for this foundation as I know that it will see me throughout my day and will also not come off so easily. I do wear glasses and have known to really struggle with my foundation caking up along the bridge of my frames in the past, even when using a setting powder. If you have combination to oily skin and are looking for a new foundation then it is well worth taking a look at this next time you visit Boots or Superdrug. I like it, I like it a lot.
The Kiehl’s Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment has been my favourite eye cream for the past two years and to this day it continues to remain so. Just this week I have come to the end of my third pot, therefore I will have to make a trip back to the store sometime very soon. It is a lovely eye cream which I find perfect for hydrating my under eye area, it also works really well under make up too which is a bonus.
My final beauty favourite comes as no surprise as it wasn’t too long ago when I wrote about my love for the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade. This is a gorgeous highlight which is quite cool in tone, making it different to the typical champagne shades that I normally choose. Generally speaking I use this on the tops of my cheek bones and softly along my brow bone as I think it makes such a difference to my overall make up look, in fact it is very rare that I do not reach for this at the moment, making it one of my most used products in 2016.
