Products on repeat: February Favourites

This month I’ve developed a few new firm favourites in foundation and fragrance. After a couple of months of testing all these recent purchases (and Christmas gifts) I wanted to shout out about a few just in case you were considering a little splurge…

First up: the face base. A couple of years ago I gave Armani’s Maestro foundation a go and with it being the first of it’s kind in dry oil foundation formulas, I gave this rave reviews and wore it for months. Sure enough my inherent love for a dewy finish eclipsed the need for ‘barely there’ coverage and back to my liquid formulas I went.

THEN Maestro Glow (£40, happened. I thought this was initially a liquid highlighter but saw a colleague quickly educated me otherwise and I’ve been besotted ever since. This is the ultimate Sunday foundation as it leaves your skin feeling nothing but naked.

Boasting fusion technology with a whopping SPF 30 it’s the perfect option for when you’re on holiday. If you’re suffering from lots of pimpled then avoid this as it will highlight imperfections in the skin – wouldn’t hurt to mix your higher coverage with a few drops of this to keep the glow…

Moving on to lips…A couple of months ago I stayed over Cat’s house and honestly, this girl makes me so proud. As someone who doesn’t work in the beauty industry her collection is shocking – I mean some would say she has a problem and it’s just beautiful. I digress – so I nabbed the tiny white pot, tried the lip balm on and the rest was history. Imparting a tingly, peppermint layer on the lips. the hydration this Eve Lom, Kiss Mix (£16, offers lasts for hours and is uber glossy in its finish.

For colour I’ve found the ULTIMATE nude for my skin tone. Olive skin girls – this is the nude lippie for you. Huda Beauty Bombshell Liquid Lipstick (£18, offers a Bridget Bardot-esque full, dusty rose pout that in a formula that will last forever.

Ever since I saw Byredo on Kate Lavie’s Instagram I wanted it. Yes, simply because the packaging was so beautiful. I did a little recon on the ingredients of Mojave Ghost and after reading the Fragrantica description it was all over.

“Top notes are ambrette (musk mallow) and sapodilla; middle notes are violet, sandalwood and magnolia; base notes are ambergris and cedar.” –

Need I say more? It was the definition of my favourite notes in a bottle. Mojave Ghost ( £95, Selfridges.comwas gifted to me by my beau for Christmas and my younger sister got me the hair mist (yes every girl needs a hair mist). I can’t leave the house without spritzing both all over.

Okay there they are! Just a handful of beauty faves for the month. Let me know if you’ve tried any and more so…please feel free to let me know which of our beauty favourites I need to check out. #enableme

    Your post is beautiful, I like how percise and compact the actually writing is ( lol need to take notes of that for my own blog ). I’m now convinced I must find a shop I can smell the Byredo fragrances in Toronto
