Hey everyone, so it's the end of February and since I'm new to the blogging world, I thought I'd share some of my favourite products recently so you guys can learn a little more about me and you could tell me what you've loved this month!
Real Techniques Brushes
I've loved these ever since I've got them. The buffing and stippling brushes apply foundation so quickly that it's cut my makeup application time in half. The contour brush is perfect for Chanel Bronze Universal and I don't have brush hairs in my product as these insanely soft synthetic brushes don't shed.
Armani fluid sheer #10
Got this on eBay for a lot cheaper, and glad I did. The shimmer is so fine, so it's perfect to mix in with your foundation for some all over radiance or to use separately as a highlighter wherever you want to attract light on your face, collar bones etc. #10 is a lovely golden colour with a slight hint of peach and has a easy to control pump so it's unlikely you would waste any product. As far as highlighters go, this is probably the most sophisticated one I've used.
I missed out on Modern Mercury, but will pick it up when I'm in India as everything releases late over there and thank god for that as I have been dreaming of what kind of glow that would give me! Topaz Chameleon is a highly pigmented very shimmery copper that looks absolutely stunning on tan and dark skin tones but can also be used with a very light hand if you have a lighter complexion. I like to use this over my Nars Casino as it awakens any bronzer to make you look like the golden glowing goddess like models that pop up in Vogue & Harper's Bazaar in the summer.
Inglot Liquid Blush #87
This blush is dummy proof. Seriously so easy blendable and simple to apply with fingers and a lovely everyday subtle colour. Lasts really long feels smooth on the skin
Nars 'Casino' Bronzer
Mac 'Woo mee' Kissable Lip Colour
Amazing texture, repromoted with the Shop/Cook Mac Collection - might need backups! Long lasting, doesn't dry out the lips and a great pinky nude!
No 17 'Peach' Mirror Shine Lipstick
One of my all time favourites, on my lips its a hot pinky coral. The best kind of lipstick formula as its so hydrating. I pretty much carry this colour everywhere, especially in the summer with a tan. Also a great way of joining the 'orange' lipstick trend if you're not brave enough to wear a full in orange. If I could describe this is in one word: JUICY
Was always scared of this but now have no idea why - picked it up free when I was Back to MACing and now it's pretty much the only light pink I use.
Topshop Infrared Lipstick
Gives envious orange lips, great formula and very affordable at £8
Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara
Free in Elle's March issue. In my opinion, this mascara is on par with Diorshow. Nonetheless, everyones lashes are different, and what works for me might not work for you but its such a good deal so don't miss it!
Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner
All time favourite eyeliner. Stays on even until I wake up in the morning. It's the richest black I've every used, and I've tried so many (Chanel, YSL, Many Arabic and Indian brands etc) The only con is that it's so soft that I have to sharpen it with each use but that just might be because I wear A LOT of eyeliner. I highly recommend it.

Illamasqua Emerge Cream Pigment
I came across this as my Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Peach was finishing and I was angry! I was angry because of the fact that i paid £17 for 1.4grams of product. It might be a great product but that's no excuse. Anyway the MA at Illamasqua applied this underneath my eyes and it cancelled and concealed each and every ounce of dark circles. Highly recommend if you're medium olive skintone like I am, lighter or darker complexions may have to layer your normal concealer over it.
