February Favourites

February is over! And now so is winter, although mother nature may have missed the memo. I've decided to start doing a monthly favourites post with my favourite products and other random things I've been loving this month.

Soap and Glory's Thick and Fast Mascara, Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner in Nude & MAC Lip Liner in Soar
If there's one product I thought that I was already happy with, it was mascara. Between my various Maybelline and Lancome products I had everything I need. However, the Thick and Fast mascara was included in a Soap and Glory gift set I received for my birthday at the beginning of the month. And I absolutely love it. It's volumising and  lengthening, plus it lasts a really long time. I'd definitely recommend it!

Despite a vow to save money for my new camera, I've ended up being a little spendy this month. I was hoping that March would be better, but given the launch of Cinderella, the MAC Cinderella line and upcoming trips to London, it appears unlikely this habit will be broken any time soon. 

One of the products I splurged on this month is MAC's Soar Lip Liner, which may well be my perfect pink ever. I've been wearing this on its own as well as a base for other shades, and it works wonderfully as both. The only issue with wearing it alone is its tendency to clump on the lips after a while, yet this is a problem shared among lip liners.

The last product in my favourites this month is Rimmel's Scandal Eyes Liner in Nude. I have a rather red water line, a weird, and admittedly minor issue to have, yet when creating makeup looks it does stick out a lot. I don't tend to use black on my water line, and a white liner is often quite harsh. This nude liner allows for me to create a natural yet polished look, which I love. This doesn't have the best staying power ever, but can be easily topped up.

Other Favourites

Confession time. I've always wanted to watch Community after seeing it everywhere online, but I was never able to watch it. This month the complete Seasons 1-5 were uploaded to Netflix. I finished them all within 10 days. The show is pure gold, easily one of the funniest and smartest shows of our time. I'm so happy that the shows returning in two weeks on Yahoo Screen!

Seriously though. This show is a gem. Like. Amazing.

Jamie Dornan in 'The Fall'

The second programme I've been loving is The Fall, starring Jamie Dornan and Gillian Anderson. I've only seen series one so no spoilers please! Series two is en route to me and I am super psyched to see it. The show is dark and gripping, and I appear to have developed a deep love for both Dornan and Anderson. If you're a fan of crime thrillers you'd be mad not to check this out. 

The last favourite I have this month, and I admit this is nauseating, are my friends. They've made me laugh a lot this past month in spite of some hard times, and I am very grateful to them. If any of you girlies are reading this, I love you!

And that's it for this month! Hope you have enjoyed this post and be sure to let me know you're favourites down below.
