February Favourites 2016

Where has February gone?! There is only 2 days left! Well its true what they say, time flies when you have tons of work to do!
Anyway, seen as its nearly over *and I didn't want to post this in mid-March*, I thought that, today, I would share the things  I have been loving through February with you!

The Stuff I Have Liked Putting on My Face (and One Thing I Liked To Use to Put it On)

As explained in the very long title, this section is about make up! This month I was in a panto *there is another little fact about me! Read 25 More Here!* so I have been using a lot more make up than usual, meaning I have been able to get a lot more testing done on products. Okay, you're probably bored by now, let's go!

In The Buff Eye Shadow Pallet - w7 Cosmetics

You are probably sick of me talking about this by now, as I have mentioned it at least twice before in Valentine's Day Make Up Looks 2016 and w7 'In the Nude' Pallet Review . Ah well, I love it. I have been using this quite a bit this month as the colours are pink-y tones and I thought they looked nice around Valentine's Day. I use this pallet all year round for a variety of occasions, but this month, it has been my go-to pallet!
Ultra Sculpt & Contour Kit (in Ultra Fair) - Make Up Revolution

I love this! As you can *hopefully* see from the picture above, it is so pigmented! I used this for panto, and I am definitely going to use this as an everyday product as well! The bronzer is matte, whereas the highlighter and blusher has little flecks of sparkle in them, which I love. The highlighter leaves a really pretty shimmer. The colours are all natural and I can't wait to start using this more!
*Side note : my friend, lets call him Joshua (that is not his name, btw), never uses make up, but he didn't mind me putting this on his face for panto, so that's saying something!*
Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lip Gloss - Afternoon Tea

I love this a lot! It is not sticky at all and is a really nice, smooth consistency. On my lips, it doesn't leave too much of a noticeable colour, as it is very natural and coral-y/pink. This is really nice as it gives a shimmer and a sort of 'my lips but better' effect. 

Real Techniques Blush Brush
I bloomin' love this sooooooooooo much! Even though it was a little price-y, it is definitely worth the money! I use to apply blush and highlighter, and then when I have all my face make up applied, I use it to make sure everything is blended in and that there is no excess make up on ma face.
Lotions and Potions

Fruit Salad Body Wash - Imperial Leather
As you may have guessed, I love this! This smells incredible and the best bit is, it actually smells like Fruit Salad sweets! Unlike a lot of body wash/shower gel/ whatever you want to call it, the (beautiful) smell of this lasts ages!
Mango Temptation Body Spray - Victoria's Secret
I have wanted Victoria's Secret body sprays for soooooooooooooooo long *that amount of 'o's is accurate*. And so, when I walked in Superdrug a couple weeks ago, and I saw this (and Love Spell) and kinda had a mini freak out. I love it. A lot. *Side note : they are so photogenic. Kinda 25% of the reason I bought it, ngl*
It smells fruity and quite mature. *Is that really what you're going with Charlotte? Okay then, good luck* Its like quite a grown up fragrance, it ,might just be the fact that its Victoria's Secret, I don't know. I have been loving this so much recently, but I don't want to use it too often, so that it lasts longer.

Hand Food Hand Cream - Soap and Glory
This month, for some unknown reason, my hands have been really dry, and now they're not! I love Soap and Glory products, and this is no exception! It smells incredible, like all Soap and Glory products! On the bottle, it says 'non-greasy and hydrating' and it is exactly that! 
Micellar Water - Garnier
I bought this in January and I like it for taking off my make up and just cleansing ma skin (its in my skincare routine, if you want to have yourself a little looksey). I only have little bottle, because I wanted to try it first, but I will definitely buy a big bottle when this one is empty!
So that's it for this post, I apologise for how long it is and I am impressed that you stuck it out for so long! Leave one of your February favourites below and if you did your own February favourites, leave me the link so I can check it out!
Parle bientot,
