February 2017 Beauty Favourites

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY MONTH!! Am I excited?! Yes…. BUT also no, because who actually enjoys getting older?! Especially when your ‘IN’ your twenties and only getting further and further away from your teens…. certainly NOT me.

Last month, I was lucky enough to get the chance to try some new beauty products, that I instantly fell in love with using and am still in fact loving till this day! Some of which aren’t mentioned in this post because in all honesty, I don’t feel like I’ve been using them for long enough yet and I wouldn’t want to tell you my first impressions on a product in my February favourites! I’ve also just recently had some new products delivered to my door – and I’m really looking forward to trying them out and then sharing my thoughts on them with you all here on my blog! BUT apart from discovering new products, I can’t say that anything particular happened to me personally during February, WELL nothing to actually write home about shall we say. Although, I very gratefully got my hands on a beautiful new bomber jacker by Tommy Hilfiger. You know the one thats in collaboration with Gigi Hadid? It’s SO beautiful. I love it. In fact, I’ll leave a link for it below – just in case you want to check it out..

Here are the beauty products that I was loving throughout February!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream

I don’t know what it is about this cream that makes me like it SO much. Honestly, I can’t put my finger on it. I just really, really enjoy using it and have in fact asked for a full-size tub for my birthday (which just so happens to be THIS month 🙌).
SO what’s it like? Well the cream itself is quite thick, it isn’t sticky at all and it really melts and absorbs into the skin nicely. It also has quite a floral scent to it, which I admit makes no difference whatsoever for your skin but it does make the overall feeling of using this cream just a little bit more luxurious. My skin is naturally and normally dry, fairly dull and sometimes a little red. This cream does help to keep my skin hydrated and moisturised, plus I really like how this cream gives my skin a very healthy looking glow after using it.

Optrex Activist 2in1 Eye Spray

If your like me and spend a huge amount of time each day on a computer (or staring at a phone) then I can pretty much guarantee that somedays your eyes do feel the strain. Since using the computer A LOT more I like to spray a few spritz of this over my (closed) eyes – during the end of the day (every other day). For me, this spray has really helped. I don’t like to use it everyday because somedays I wouldn’t say that I’ve been on the computer long enough, and I wouldn’t want to use this spray just for the sake of it but for those days when I’ve been sat at a computer pretty much from 8:30 to 4, this spray is a massive relief and it certainly helps my eyes with that horrid dry, irritated and tired feeling.

Becca First Light Priming Filter – Jellybluesblog Review

Have you read my review?! NO? Then you need to. This is the primer that I was (and still am) reaching for each and everyday throughout February….
I love it!

Illamasqua Beyond Perfecting Illuminator
Shade: OMG

YES. I have a new favourite highlighter. It’s true… everyday I think to myself I need to use something different but everyday I turn to this. It was my found favourite during February, as I suspect it will be during March too. It gives my cheekbones, brow bone, cupid bow and basically anywhere else a pleasant (light shimmery) glow which appears quite subtle but also very pretty at the same time.

Clinique Beyond Perfection Foundation & Concealer
Shades: Alabaster and Breeze

Review coming to Jellybluesblog soon

WOW! This foundation is amazing. I wore the darker shade, out of the two which I own, everyday when tanned and I absolutely loved it! The foundation itself has quite a thick formula but then I wouldn’t call it heavy or one that suffocates the skin. It’s also very easy to apply, with the large doe-foot applicator and with that it’s also incredibly easy to blend! I like to use a damp beauty sponge. The only downside to this foundation for me is that the lightest shade available isn’t light enough – and because of which I still can’t wear this foundation alone on a normal day without any fake tan on.

Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow
Shade: Gold Goddess

Review coming to Jellybluesblog soon

I’m literally obsessed with this glitter liquid eyeshadow, I wore it on a night out a little while ago and got so many compliments whilst wearing it.
