February 2018 Beauty Favourites

February Favourites when it is the end of March…It is better late than never, right?

I am still using/loving all the products which I have featured in my January favourites  but there are a few other products which I have added to my routine.

Max Factor Glossfinity Nail Polish in 85 Cerise (review and swatch)

I am having a break from my gel manicures so I am re-discovering the joys of changing the nail colours every few days, and of course Cerise from Max Factor made an appearance. I am on my third bottle, and I am obsessed with this bright fiery red which looks opaque with only one coat.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in  Red Carpet Red (Cult Beauty and Net A Porter.)

Great formula which can be worn as an opaque true matte (ruby) red, or as a stain by gently tapping it in with the fingers. This may sound like such a cliche but I feel so glamourous  and confident whenever I am wearing it, the lipstick for dates. The formula is also nice, I do not find it to be drying.

Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow in Black Chocolate Review and Swatches

I was very excited to try this beauty from Bobbi Brown – Sparkle Eye Shadow (LE) £20/€30 in Black Chocolate which is a part of  Uber Basics Pretty Powerful collection.

This is a dark brown eye shadow with sparkle and, if you are a regular reader, you will know that I love my dark browns.

Here is how it looks like in the pan.

I was worried that it may  be  a bit too much for the day time but the best thing about this eye shadow, is the fact that it looks different in different light. In the day the sparkles looks wearable, you don’t end up looking like a disco ball. But  in the evening, when you need some oomph, the glittery bits look fantastic in the electric light, they  do sparkle!

Although these are glittery eye shadows, the texture is very smooth and

Clarins Ombre Minerale Eye Shadows Review and Swatches

Clarins recently launched a new range of eye shadows ( £16/$20) in 16 shades which are divided into four groups.

I actually did get three eye shadows to show you, so here they are. I have: 01 White Sparkle Illuminator, 03 Petal and 16 Vibrant Violet.

Although these are not the shades that I would choose for myself, I do like all three a lot.

01 White Sparkle is a silver glittery eye shadow which I personally use all over the lid with an eye liner and lots of mascara. It can be also used on top of other  eye shadows. This is a great shade for Christmas actually.

 03 Petal is a very beautiful  satin baby pink that is a great all-over-the-lid shade, looks great paired with a dark shade in the outer corner. I think such shade would also look great on mature ladies.

16 Vibrant Violet  is an iridescent violet with blue micro shimmer. It reminds me of the violet from this Clarins palette, so if you have missed it, you may want to pick up this eye shadow.
