February Favourites!

It's that time again. I honestly feel like I blinked and February was over!? I'm also so surprised that its already nearly a week into March. Where is 2016 going?!

February was such a fun month for me, I had time off work and spent a lot of time on here! That being said.. I haven't blogged in a week!! I know, I'm sorry. I need to set up certain days to blog to be more consistent as I went from 3 posts in a week to none! But, I'm back and I recently got my hands on a lot of good products to let you know about I'm just trying them out first!

So, onto my favourites for last month..

I've been loving liquid lipsticks throughout February. I have also been trying to include more glossy/satin lips but I always come back to these! Twig Satin Lipstick by Mac and the Mac
Lip Pencil in Soar was my go to lip for nearly a year but recently I've been reaching for this Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick in Androgyny everyday for every look! Along with that I have been using my Stila Liquid Lipstick in Caramello a lot more. Originally I found this shade a little too light for me to wear as a nude lip, it felt a little foundation lips to be honest and we ALL know that isn't a good look! Instead I've been wearing a nice lip liner and using this liquid lip on the centre of my lips as a highlight or all over is perfect! For foundation my go to has been the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation Stick. This is perfect for a night out or just anytime I want full coverage. This makes my skin flawless and is easy to apply with a beauty blender. It can get oily on my skin and slide around if I don't wear powder and a good primer and I have dry skin. I take these steps daily though so this keeps mine in place. For a cheaper foundation and one I've been reaching for daily is my L'oreal Infallible 24Hr Foundation. This has great coverage and doesn't feel like I'm wearing makeup at all! I would say its medium coverage but with an extra pump it easily could be built to a full coverage. I wear this daily and keep getting compliments on it. It's a great foundation and is definitely my favourite drug store foundation. Another favourite is my Dolly Wink Eyeliner! The packaging is super cute which helped entice me to buy it. It then quickly became my favourite from the first use. The tip on this is super flexible and gives me the perfect flick and we all know I love my eyeliner. It's also a very black eyeliner and doesn't budge on nights out which is perfect for me!

I've been obsessing with my Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay Blush Palette this month!! To be honest I was never too keen on blush. It kinda scared me! I thought it made me look too caked. I bought this on a whim as I loved the eyeshadow palette and when watching youtube tutorials I seen all my favourite beauty vloggers wearing blush and I kinda thought I was missing out. Boy, was I missing out!! This blush palette was the best buy as I now have 6 new shades of blush with big pans so they'll last a long time they also are so multi-purposeful! There's shades I can use as a subtle contour, highlight, brow bone highlight, inner-corner highlight on my eye and as eyeshadows! These colours are so warm, bright and gorgeous! I love the formula too. It's definitely been a great buy.

I also have been obsessed with lashes the last while. I always wore lashes but now it's become more of a daily thing. My natural lashes are very straight and short so just wearing mascara on it's own doesn't really work for me. I searched online and came across these lashes. They look natural and cross which is a style I really like! There was 10 pairs for just over £2 including delivery. They were an absolute steal and I love them I'll definitely be repurchasing soon! I just use my Duo lash glue to apply these. 

Onto 'other' favourites from the month..

Music-wise this month I've had two albums on repeat. The first is Don't You by a band called Wet. This was released at the end of Jan and I've loved it throughout Feb. I came across this band as they were in my Discover Weekly Playlist on Spotify and I've been in love since. It's a female fronted band which are in the synth-pop kind of genre with a hint of more soulful sounds. This record is a perfect break up album and lyrically I adore it. Some of my favourite songs are It's All In Vain, Deadwater and You're The Best but honestly I have listened to this album from front to back multiple times. It's perfect.

The second album I'm including even though it only came out at the very end of Feb I feel it still might be my most listened to album. It's I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It from The 1975. I've been listening to the handful of songs released all month and my pre-order of the album arrived on my door step on release day. Perfect! The vinyl itself is gorgeous and I love the album. It has all my favourite things from previous songs and more. I love all the singles released but on this album my heart lies in She's American. This. Song. Ever since I gave the album the first listen this song stuck out! There's a slow build them BAM! It hits with the most perfect sounding guitar riff and full on 80's synth in the background. I love it every time I hear it. This song is so cinematic and I feel like it would be on a John Hughes brat pack film soundtrack. I can't speak any higher of this song. It's timeless and amazing, just like the rest of the album!

I watched only a handful of films this month in comparison to my usual long list. One that stuck out for me was definitely Deadpool! This film was everything I wanted from it. Deadpool's sarcasm was perfect and the amount of violence etc was perfect. They had all the traits a great comic book film should have and kept it light and hilariously funny. I laughed out loud so much! I loved it. 
An oldie but a goodie I watched was Dazed and Confused. I've seen this film time and time again and I still love it. The pace of this film is great and it's a perfect coming of age film. I love how it documents one day but the story line feels like a lot happens and nothing is dragged out or unnecessary. I always wanted my teens to be like this and it has that nostalgic feel now. It also rekindles my love for the 70's. I love the soundtrack to this movie, the fashion and just everything about it. I definitely recommend this to everyone. It's a fun film and a great watch!!

That concludes my favourites for this month, I hope you enjoyed it and let me know what some of your favourites are or what you'd like me to check out! Maybe film recommendations? Those would be greatly appreciated!!
