What im wearing on my face ... February !

Ok so I know we only have about half an hour left of February but I thought I would post a "what im wearing on my face" blog for this month as im sure by the time March comes along I will have tried a load of new products!

So lets start with the foundation! I am using Rimmels Lasting Finish foundation in shade 201. I have been using this product for well over a year and love it! It really does do what it says on the bottle! last all day and gives a even coverage! I really would recommend this. This product can vary in price from around £6.00 to £8.99 as usually alot of Rimmel products are on offer in Boots.

Now moving on to my eyes and eye liners that I am using. I usually apply a pencil eye liner to the top and bottom of my eyelid, I am using yet again another Rimmel product the Rimmel Soft Kohl eye liner pencil, I only have to apply it once a day and find it doesn't leave dark smudge marks around your eyes. On the top of my eyelid I will use Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid eye liner in shade midnight black. I like to have a defined liquid eye liner along my eyelid to give my eye a more of a defined look.

On my eyelashes this month I have been using a AWESOME mascara, It is the "There Real" Mascara from Benefit. Its quite an expensive mascara costing £18.99 but it is totally worth it, within a few brushes across my eyelashes you can see the difference in length and volume. Im rather lucky and have pretty long eyelashes anyway so this product totally opens my eyes up and gives me the fluttery lashes I want! I have received quite a few compliments when wearing this mascara, with people asking if im wearing falsies, but I can proudly say no there all mine! I would totally recommend anyone who is looking for a new mascara and doesn't mind spending a bit more money than your average mascara would cost to rush out a get one. 

Now for my cheeks! This month I have been using a highlighter I have for quite a while but never used it. I got it free with some perfume I bought (Britney Spears - Curious) and when I tried it I was really impressed. I use it on the top of my cheek bones and for a added bonus it it scented! - wouldn't have a clue where to go out and buy it from now though as I got it for a gift with the perfume! The blusher I am using is ELF Pink Blush I got this when I purchased a few eye shadows last month and for a cheap blusher it has done the job and lasted quite well. I think it only cost about £2.99 so was definitely a bargain! When it comes to purchasing a new blusher though I will have a scout around and  see what else is out there for me to try! I would then usually apply Vaseline Cocoa butter onto my lips throughout the day to keep them smooth and moisturised. 

Well that's about it for my everyday make-up post!

  2. ah desperate to try the benefit mascara! xx

  3. Its brilliant! I would seriously recommend it, I was wanting it for months but didnt really want to spend the £18 on it in case it didnt live up to the hype so I decided to use some Christmas vouchers on it and I am so happy I did! Its totally worth the money, i've nearly run out and as soon as I do I will not be hesitating to buy a new bottle
