2015 || February Favourites

Hey Guys!
I know I'm a bit late with my February Favourites post, but better late than never, right? So there's only a few things I've been loving last month but I'd say that every single girl needs these in her life!
So to start off I've got the Vaseline essential moisture body lotion which is amazing for dry skin. Not only does it make my body feel soft but it restores broken skin and heals it! It also smells amazing!! I think it retails at £2.99 at Wilko's but I'm not entirely sure as I bought it at a reduced price.
The next product I've been loving is the L'oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint foundation. This product is very similar to MAC's Face and Body foundation but at a fraction of the price. It is £9.99 and I got it when it was on offer at Superdrug for half the price! Bargain!!! It feels great on the skin, almost like velvet and is actually pretty good coverage for a lightweight foundation.
I received the 1D perfume 'You & I' for my 19th birthday in January and actually love the sweet-fruity scent. It makes me feel really girly and it's perfect for the sunny weather we recently had in Nottingham.
17 has always been one of my favourite drugstore make-up brands and it has never disappointed me one bit. This eyeshadow trio is perfect for Spring as it brings out the colour of your eyes and goes with any lipstick whether you opt for a nude brown or a bright pink! I don't know the name of this product but I know that they have discontinued the range a while ago as this eyeshadow has been sitting at the bottom of my make-up case for quite some time now, I am pleased to introduce it back to my life.
Last but not least is the amazing Toasted Marshmallow scented room fragrance I bought from Poundland. It smells amazing of marshmallows and cookies, almost like Snowflake Cookie by Yankee. It's just so perfect for those long days of coursework, revision etc. when you need a little mood boost instead of lighting candles just spray this around the room.

What have you been loving this February? Have you ever tried any of those products?

Lots of Love,

Benefit Cosmetics Haul

Hi guys!
I know I have been slacking in the blogger world lately, and I'm very sorry about that! I have so much college work to focus on, especially as I have exams coming up next month. 
I recently purchased a couple of extravagant make up items from Benefit. It hurt my card to pay that much, however those items are so worth the money.
Hello Flawless and Brow Zings.
I needed a new professional pressed powder which would go well with my new MAC foundation. I was going to go to MAC originally, however I got side tracked by the benefit counter in Boots. I had my make up done by a lovely lady who worked there and decided to purchase this powder. I chose the ivory shade as my skin is very fair. The texture of the powder is very smooth and feels like velvet after it's been applied onto the skin. It comes with a mirror, brush and a sponge and costs about £25.50 from what I can remember.
I have always wanted to try benefits brow set, but could never get around to actually buying it as it is a little bit pricey. I spoke to the make up artist there and she asked if I wanted to try it on, so I thought 'why not?'. I applied the wax and then the powder onto my eyebrows and instantly fell in love with this product. I also got told that it lasts for about 2 years!! I couldn't be happier with an eyebrow product as I have tried many already. I chose this product in the light shade as I am blonde and do not wish for my eyebrows to be too dark as I thought it would look a bit funny. This is by far one of the best eyebrow sets ever at the price of £23.50.
I hope this helps and will make up for me being a lazy git not posting enough this month!
Lots of love,
