February Favourites (BEAUTY)

Here are the makeup and beauty  products I've been loving during the month of February!

Face brush
(I use 2 of the same brush; one for liquid foundation, one for powder foundation)
ELF powder brush - godsend! Stippled liquid foundation on perfectly!

Soap & Glory Kick Ass concealer - Favourite concealer ever, blends like a dream! Full review here!

Foundation (liquid and powder)
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation (Ivory) - looks really dark here, especially next to the pale powder, but it's my perfect shade!
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder - Perfect setting powder to my liquid foundation. Together, they give me a flawless look.

Eyelash Curler
 ELF gem tools eyelash curler - favourite ever! Gives my lashes a gorgeous curl and it holds all day

Eyeliner (pencil and gel)
Catrice Kohl Kajal in Ultra Black - darkest eyeliner I've ever tried, love it! Lasts for hours with minial touch-up, easy to blend when needed.
Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H - Absolute must have. Glides on, and lasts over 24 hours! (I fell asleep wearing it the other night [bad!!] and it was still perfect the next day!) Full review here!

Eye brushes
Catrice angled eyeliner brush (I use the bent end for gel liner, opposite end for filling in my brows)
MAC 242 shader brush - perfect for packing on colour!
MAC 217 blending brush - soft, blends colours easily!
Fluffy brush (from fake MAC brush set on eBay) - Fake MAC, yet works almost as good as real MAC, and it's perfect for blending.
ELF Professional Blending Eye Brush - perfect for applying colour to the crease with the rounded shape.
No 7 Smokey Eyeliner Brush - Perfect for crease colours and applying thinly under the bottom lashes.

Eyebrow kit
Catrice Eyebrow Set - words can't describe my love for this set! I use both colours, mainly the dark one! comes with a mini angled brush (with spoolie) AND cute mini tweezers!

L'Or√©al Volume Million Lashes - holds a curl, gives volume, length. What more could you want? Full review here!

Rimmel Lipstick in 006 Pink Blush - perfect light pink! My everyday lipstick. Lasts for hours with minimal touch-up needed.

Rimmel blush in Autumn Catwalk - perfect for anytime of year, gives a cute rosy pink glow.

Eye makeup remover
Simple Eye Makeup Remover - kind to eyes, removes all eye makeup, even waterproof and I find it even removes traces of false eyelash glue. Perfect!

Facial Cleanser
Boots Simple Sensitive Cleansing Lotion - removes all makeup, leaves my skin soft, and feeling mosturised! Perfect for sensitive skin, as the name suggests.

Facial Toner
Simple Soothing Facial Toner - refreshes my skin, keeps it clear and supple.

Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser - I have THREE bottles of this, that's how amazing it is! It leaves my skin feeling so well moisturised and hydrated. And it's REALLY cheap!

Armani Code - you have to smell it to see how amazing it is!! 

False lashes and glue
Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive - best I've EVER tried! Goes on kind of bluish, dries clear.
ELF Dramatic Lashes in Black - Favourite lashes ever!! Will upload a picture of them on my eyes.
