February Favourites

It's nearing the end of February so I thought I would be a step ahead, for once and blog about the products I've been loving this month!

As you can see, I'm a foundation junkie. I currently have about 20 foundations in my collection begging to be used but I can't help but buy more. I'm not going to say too much on the three beauties featured above as I plan a full review but this is why I love them..

Chanel Mat Lumiere
I absolutely love the packaging of Chanel foundations, minus a small issue with the pump. This is the best smelling foundation I've ever used. I can never put my finger on exactly what it reminds me of but it smells really sweet and delicious! Although it's expensive it exudes luxury and has a gorgeous finish.

Estee Lauder Double Wear
This is the newest addition to my collection, I was suckered into the Estee Lauder counter whilst browsing through Debenhams and once I saw it on I knew I needed it. I've been wearing it the last week non-stop and looove it. I don't even mind the bottle with no pump!

Illamasqua Rich Foundation
I've had this for a decent amount of time now and still have barely made a dent. The coverage it offers is completely ridiculous, it masks everything. So much so that I wouldn't dare to wear it alone and instead mix it in with my other foundations if I want them to have more coverage.

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Lipstick in 'Baby Pink'
I've already popped up a blog post on this here and another Sally Hansen lipstick I purchased, both cost me only £1.50 yet they're pigmented, moisturising and long lasting. Usually I buy lipsticks and just pop them on my shelf to admire and try on whilst bored but I've finally found a colour that is subtle, pretty and suits my skin tone.

Bourjois Highlighting Powder
I loved this when I was 17/18 and used it religiously until it suddenly disappeared from the shelves of my local Boots. Devestated, I lived without it until someone gave me the idea of browsing Ebay and finally found another for only £4. It gives a gorgeous, pearlescent sheen to the skin and makes blushes and bronzers look even better.

And finally the brushes..
Sigma F82 - Round Top Kabuki. I absolutely love this for buffing in foundations it gives the ultimate airbrushed finish.
Max Factor Foundation Brush - My boyfriend picked this up for me and it's the perfect brush for applying the Double Wear foundation. The synthetic hairs are extremely soft and easy to wash.
Revlon Blush Brush - I've had this for almost a year now and haven't had any hairs falling out, it's kept its shape and was great value for money.
