5 favourites – February

The last winter month has come to an end, and I’m really looking forward to spring. I hope the weather will soon become more spring-like though. Sadly, February has been a month of illness in my case; I’ve been ill the past week, and I was also ill a couple of weeks back. Hopefully, the arrival of spring will change my unfortunate situation. But anyways, on to this months favourites.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar eye shadow palette: I just want to mention right away that I had quite a few make-up favourites this month, but I’ve boiled them down to three. My absolut favourite make-up product this month has been my Chocolate Bar palette. This palette is amazing, and I’m so glad I finally bought it. I did a full post on it here.

Stila Convertible Color in Lillium: Yes, my two purchases from BeautyBay.com have definitely been hits this month. This dual lip and cheek cream has been one of my most used blushers this month; I love the colour, and I love the more dewy finish a cream product gives the skin. I would love to get my hands on more Convertible Colors from Stila.

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in 210 Keep It Classy: I’ve mentioned this lip product several times this past month and for that reason alone I had to feature it in this post. The reason I have mentioned it a lot is simply because it’s sooo good. It’s so smooth and easy to apply, and it’s quite long lasting as well. I would say it has a semi-matte finish, and the colour is absolutely amazing. I’m wearing it here.

Friends

Friends – TV-series: I don’t remember if I’ve mentioned it before (I probably have), but Friends is my all-time favourite TV-series. I’ve watch all seasons so many times, but I still find it amusing. Due to the fact that I finished the last season of Sex and the City (again) which is my second favourite TV-series, and the fact that I’ve been ill a lot, I started watching Friends again, and it never grows old in my opinion.

McBusted (album) – McBusted: I think we have established by now how much I love McBusted, and I really wanted to get my hands on their debut album which came out in December last year, but you can’t buy it in any music stores in Denmark. I had thought about buying it somewhere online, but without me knowing about it my mum had bought it for me, so you can imagine how excited I was when she told me. I was a bit sceptical about the whole McBusted thing in the beginning (due to the fact that I’m such a huge McFly fan), but I have to say McBusted has won me over big time. I would probably still like to have McFly back at some point, but right know I’m really into McBusted, and their debut album is everything I hoped for. I knew a couple of the songs already (which I loved and still do), but I was so stoked to finally listen to the whole album, and the sound is just the perfect mix of McFly and Busted. Well done, guys!

Bright red

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. It’s not that often that I wear a bright red lip like the one I’m wearing in these pictures (I’m more into darker reds), but I really liked it with this look, so maybe I should do it more often:)

(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – MAC Keepsakes Plum Eyes eye shadow palette (shades: Subtly Elegant + Fashion Beat) + Stila All Over Shimmer Duo highlighter (lightest shade on browbone), mascara – Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express, eyeliners – Maybelline Color Tattoo in Permanent Taupe (40) + MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lips: MUA Intense Colour lipliner in Red Drama + Rimmel Moisture Renew lipstick in 500 Diva Red)

Casual, but dressy

Here’s what I wore Friday January 30. I love this type of casual, but dressy outfit. The sweatshirt is obviously very casual, but the trousers can be dressed up or down depending on the way you style them. The shirt and red lips, of course, add some more dressy elements to the outfit.

Chocolate Bar

I’ve been drooling (pun intended) over this palette for almost a year, and I’m so glad that I finally decided to purchase it about a month ago. It’s (obviously) the Too Faced Chocolate Bar eye shadow palette and I purchaced it from BeautyBay.com alongside this Stila Convertible Color. This palette has an amazing colour selection; it’s mostly neutrals, but mixed in with some more colourful shadows. The palette contains 16 eye shadows, and as far as I can see and feel the shadows come in three different finishes/textures; there are 6 matte shades (White Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Triple Fudge, Salted Caramel, Semi-Sweet, and Strawberry Bon Bon), 4 (slightly chalky) glittery shades (Gilded Ganache, Black Forest Truffle, Candied Violet, and Cherry Cordial), and 6 (buttery) metallic shades (Marzipan, Amaretto, Hazelnut, Créme Brulee, Haute Chocolate, and Champagne Truffle). My favourite finish/texture is definitely the latter. They are so buttery smooth and incredibly pigmented (my favourites right now are Marzipan, Amaretto, and Hazelnut). I love the matte shades as well which are mostly neutral shades (I’m in love with Salted Caramel!). The only disappointing thing about this palette is the glittery shades. The colours look gorgeous in the pan, but are quite chalky, and not as pigmented as the other shadows. All in all I do absolutely love this palette, and I would highly recommend it. Oh, and how cute is the packaging and shadow names:)

Barbie in black

Here’s what I wore Thursday January 29. I hadn’t worn my Barbie T-shirt in a long time, so I decided to style it with all black to make it stand out.

Feeling pink

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing another one of my favourite lipsticks at the moment which is the Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick in the colour Feel Pink. It’s just such a gorgeous neutral pink that goes with pretty much any eye make-up.

(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – MAC Keepsakes Plum Eyes eye shadow palette (shades: Subtly Elegant + Nocturnelle + Shadowy Lady + Taupeless + Sensibility), mascara – Maybelline The Rocket Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White.
