FAVOURITE PRODUCT OF THE MONTH-FEBRUARY EDITION.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone has been doing well! Long time no post… recently I have been feeling a little uninspired and unmotivated, a feeling I hope some of you might be able to relate to. Nonetheless, in a bid to shake this unwanted feeling off, I am back today with a very belated ‘favourite product’ post for the month of February. So, if you would like to find out what item of makeup I have chosen this time, then please keep on reading!

Throughout the month of February there was one product in particular that I constantly reached for, and so it only made sense to choose it… my Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in the shade ‘Leo’. Whether it was in the day or at night, this liquid lip was my go to.

I love the colour; I would describe it as… well the word ‘rust’ springs to mind, although that doesn’t make it sound very appealing! The product description on the brand’s website describes it as a ‘ true matte honey brown’, in case my efforts didn’t do the colour justice 😉 But I have also left some pictures of the product at the end of post as always, so you can see what the colour looks like both on the lips and a swatch on the hand for comparison. The colour matches so many eye looks, my personal favourite to wear it with is a dark red/ orange eye, which I use my Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette to achieve, as I think the colours compliment each other very well. Moreover,  believe it is a great ‘in-between’ shade that everyone can wear; it is still in the nude colour spectrum, so is wearable for day-to-day ( like I wore in the picture, with minimal eye makeup), but because of the darkness of the shade, it can be worn with a more dramatic look, perfect for nights out, and also it isn’t too dark for those who might not be confident enough to rock a statement lip!

The product itself, like all others in the range, lasts a long time, which is why I feel I can wear it out to dinner or drinks and not worry about it smudging or coming off… you can’t say that about many dark lipstick shades! The ‘matteness’ of the product is definitely another bonus, as well as the fact that it dries down from wet to matte very quickly, good for applying makeup in a hurry or on the go!

Overall, I just love ( guessed I love it by now, huh?) the versatility of this liquid lip, and I really am surprised that this shade doesn’t get more recognition! I know I am going to continue wearing throughout the next months; definitely a product that can worn all year round no matter the season! IMG_6457

I hope you enjoyed this short post, and I am looking forward to sharing my March edition with you soon.

Favourite product of the month-January edition.

Makeup

Welcome back to my blog! I hope everyone is well and having a good week! I can’t believe we are in February already… where did January go!? For today’s post I thought I would share with you my favourite beauty product for the month of January. I plan on starting to make this post a monthly tradition, with a new favourite each time! So, to find out what item of makeup I chose for my ‘Product of the month- January edition’, then please keep reading!

Deciding my favourite product for this month was definitely an easy choice for me … the Makeup Revolution highlighter in the shade ‘Golden Lights’! I am sure that you may have heard the hype about this product by now, as everyone in the beauty community, including Jeffree Star, seems to be buzzing over it! The product is a white highlighter with a gold iridescent shine/ gold reflects that look amazing when they hit the light. Not to mention that it is extremely pigmented, which provides a blinding glow when applied to the high points of the face, but it can also be made to look more natural, or indeed, more intense by building up the product (which is what I normally do). Also, the texture of the product is another bonus, as the gold glitter within the product isn’t too chunky, but it is quite powdering, which I don’t particularly mind as I love the way it looks on the skin, which is the important bit!

Additionally, I think the highlighter would look good on any skin tone due to the high pigmentation and colour/ iridescent nature of the product; I have pretty fair skin, but the gold shine helps to warm my complexion up, whilst the white base brightens my face an makes my highpoints really stand out. I usually apply the product to my cupids bow, the end of my nose, my inner eye corners, underneath my brow bones, and of course, above my cheekbones! This creates a full face glow that finishes off any makeup look every time! In comparison to highlighters I have used in the past, including ones from luxury brands, I have to say this one beats them all. There isn’t much more you could ask for in a highlighter! But, the best bit is yet to come… it only costs £3! Incredible! I definitely think that I need to purchase another one (from Superdrug) as a back up for when my runs out! Although I might not need one for a while as the pan size/ amount of product you get is impressive for the price (10g).

To wrap up my favourite product post for this month, I have to say I can’t recommend the Revolution highlighter enough; I use it everyday and have no plans to stop! Below are some images of the product, both with and without flash, but I would suggest going to your local Superdrug to test it out for yourself! I have also used the highlight in some of my previous posts ( ‘Makeup by me’ and ‘NYE outfit and makeup’), so if you want to see how it looks on the skin/ how it photographs then be sure to check those out!
