February 2015 Beauty Favourites

Makeup wise, it was pretty much all the same in February, and you can read about all the products here.  There is also something very different from  me this month – I’ve been loving nude lipsticks (which is  a complete shock for me), and I will write a feature about it soon.

February 2015 Beauty Favourites Balance me, Illamasqua, Yves Rocher, L'Occitane, Max Factor

There are only two other makeup products that I want to mention:

Illamasqua’s Nail Varnish in Nomad. I wore in for the whole last week of the month, and this gorgeous jade set me in the mood for Spring.  Not too pastel but not too bright, it is just perfect.

Max Factor’s  Creme Puff Blush in 25 Alluring Rose. This is a shade created for medium  and dark skin  tones, so on me it looks like a bronzer. It blends out beautifully and gives a gorgeous glow.  Look out for the feature about these new blushes this week.

As for the beauty products – I was very stressed and completely out of time  in February, so shower time was the ultimate luxury and “me” time when I could just think and reflect on what was going on. I have tonnes of shower products in my tiny bathroom, and have been loving all of them, but two

Makeup4all 6 years February 2015By the way, I was really touched that one of my best friends got me this shower gel as a present for the blog Birthday today.

To celebrate I will have a small giveaway later this month, so stay tuned.

I also have  gathered a lot of material and exciting interviews for the new magazine, yes really, and plan a re-design which I have been wanting for ages now. I just need to find time for that now, so wish me luck ;)

I know that a lot of readers are wondering what to get their husbands/boyfriends (or even brothers/fathers/male friends) for Christmas.

This is why I have asked “men from my life” what they would like to get – to share with you some ideas. I just hope that now they won’t think that I am getting all those things for them… ;)

I have promised not to give away their names, so here are just the quotes and age group. Most of my male friends are 30-35 but I have asked several younger and several older men,  for the variety.

I’d prefer my favourite brand, but it’s not that important, as long, as they are good” (At least four men said that).

Recently I fell completely  in love with the new Max Factor’s Shimmer Excess release, so I’ve decided to make a round-up of my favourite affordable cream eye shadows in general.

All of them are definitely worth the attention, and they prove that you don’t need to pay a fortune to get a high quality makeup these days.

I have published detailed reviews about each in the past, so if you want to know more – just click the links, included in this feature.

My Top 5 Hand Creams

Regular readers will probably know that  a good hand cream is a must have for me. If I could have only one beauty product with  me in my bag, that’d be it (and a lip balm, if I can have two).

I have very dry skin, especially on the hands, and I love to re-apply the cream whenever I need to do it or feel like doing it.

This is why I’ve decided to share my personal top 5 hand creams. Unfortunately, most of them are not cheap but I,  personally, am ready to pay for the quality.

My-Top-5-Hand-Creams-Elemis-Clarins-Yes-Nurse-LOccitane-Aromatherapy-Associates-Makeup4allElemis Pro-Radiance Hand Cream (review)

It is probably my favourite hand cream ever, it instantly makes the skin feel moisturized and smooth, such a relief, especially in the cold(er) months. Plus I could totally tell that my nails were in much better condition when I was using it.

The price is £24 from Feel Unique
