Favourites: February 2017
For the last month of full-on winter I have quite a few long-time staples, some new favourites and a sexy perfume to share.
Burberry Eye Colour in Almond ( here )
As you can tell by the massive pan - I really love this eyeshadow. Formula wise it's fantastic - long lasting, buildable and easy to blend. The colour is also perfect - dark enough to really deepen the crease, but not so dark I can't wear it to work. I've barely used anything else in my crease for the past few months, and I will definitely have to force myself if I want to use anything else.
Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise Cream Shadow in 'Marie Antoinette' ( here )
Another item I've been obsessed with for the past few months, for basically the exact same reasons as with Burberry's Almond eyeshadow - formula wise it's long lasting, buildable and easy to blend. And the colour, the colour! Just the same as with Almond - dark enough to make a difference, not too dark for everyday office wear. It's also just the right amount of sheen and shine.
Filorga C-Recover Anti-Fatigue Radiance Concentrate ( here )
This is fantastic! I'm on my third "ampule" out of the three in total that come in the box. This gives my skin the most amazing glow and has really helped with evening out my skintone and fading pigmentation marks. I'm absolutely addicted and will be moving straight on to a new box after finishing this one!
Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Fluid Foundation ( here )
I've never in the past been able to use Guerlain foundations as they were never light enough for my skintone. With the release of the new Lingerie de Peau they finally came out with some light enough shades, and I was so excited to finally try a Guerlain foundation. I love it. It's light in coverage, gives a nice semi-matte glow, and looks super natural. It doesn't have the longest staying power, but other than that it's perfect. I use the shade 01N Very Light.
Gucci Bamboo Eau de Parfum Limited Edition ( here )
I haven't used many Gucci perfumes, but after smelling this I just had to have it. It's a beautiful floral and citrus scent, that is still quite sexy and dark. It has notes of orange blossom, ylang-ylang, bergamot, Casablanca Lily, ambergris, sandalwood and vanilla. If you like the sound of that, you better be quick because it's limited edition and seems to be quite popular!
