*Contains Mixture of Purchased & Gifted items

There are still quite a few of the same products from last month especially the Giorgio Armani and Cover FX foundation combination which i mentioned in my January Favourites. Another foundation that made it into this months favourites is an old love the Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation. Now as i mentioned in my original review i have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. I hate that it clings to my dry patches and enhances the lines around my mouth ( the good old laughter lines ) other than that it gives the most beautiful flawless finish to the skin. I have lost count of the amount of people who have complimented my skin the past month. I know that it is a mixture of my Skincare Regime ( which we will talk about shortly ) and the foundations i have been wearing.

As a huge lover of NYX products i was super excited when they came to Boots in the UK. I no longer have to worry about buying in bulk from the states with huge customs, and it's assuring that i can buy a small amount of products and they arrive within a couple of days. Last year i fell in love with the Makeup Geek foiled eyeshadows so when i saw that NYX had their own foiled, high-shimmer eyeshadows and i could purchase them in the UK, i knew i had to get them.

It is hard to believe that just a few years back in my very later 20's i started wearing lipstick! I never wore lipstick as i hated how high maintenance they were; My whole adult life i was just a simple lady who loved a tint of colour from a lip gloss. Years later, beauty blogging opened up a whole new makeup world to me and before i knew it i had found lipsticks that i actually liked, and have since realised that not all lipsticks have to be high maintenance, unless you want them to be of course. For me wearing a lipstick that is comfortable is the most important thing. It has to suit my personal style, age, lifestyle and my complexion.

I remember just over a year ago i was embarrassed that i had over 50 MAC Lipsticks and vowed to get my collection below 35. I managed to get it below that amount and was so proud of myself, yet somehow it has crept back up and doubled in size. I counted that i have a shocking 75 MAC lipsticks in my collection and even though some are collector editions, the majority i just don't find myself reaching for. I thought i would do a quick blogpost with all 75 lipsticks in my collection before painfully parting with some.

Last year i was very kindly sent my first ever Becca blush by the lovely Kerry who is a style director for  BECCA . The shade i was sent was Nightingale which is a beautiful super pigmented berry shade that is perfect for the fall time and deeper skin-tones. I loved the texture and formulation of the blush that i wanted to order more. Sadly all the shades i want are not available to purchase in the UK, so i decided to order another blush from Sephora and chose the shade Wild Honey.

 I believe that a foundation should be the one make-up item that we invest very wisely in, because once our base is perfected, everything else we apply on top just looks better! Finding that perfect foundation involves really getting to know your own skin type; your undertone, what consistency you like, coverage, finish etc. Of course this involves a lot of trial and error ( thank goodness for brand's that give out tester samples ); But finding the 'Perfect Foundation' really is one of life's makeup missions. Every body has different skin-types, skin-tones, textures and preferences. Just like with mascaras we all look for different things when it comes to a foundation and our base; hence why so many foundations get mixed reviews. Remember what may work for one person may not suit another, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bad foundation. So hopefully i can help with the task of finding you a perfect foundation match......

I wanted to get this post up last week but it was such a busy week and the lighting was not so great for taking photos. I was super excited to receive a package a couple of weeks ago full of new goodies from Gosh Cosmetics, containing some of their new Gosh SS16 collection. The range launches in just two days on the 10th of February and some of the items are very exciting! The collection has a natural and neutral focus, so this is a range that will appeal to a lot of people. I personally have waited a long-time for them to release one of their '9 Colours To Wear In' eyeshadow palettes in everyday neutral shades, so i was over the moon when i saw they had finally made one, Yay! If you want to see what else is in their collection then keep on reading.

I thought i had a lot of foundations when i did a blogpost dedicated to my foundation collection the beginning of 2015 ( which you can view here ); However i think i have accumulated an unreal amount of foundations throughout the year of 2015. I literally found myself purchasing a new foundation ( or three ) every month to try out for all you lovelies. who are always ask me about my foundation recommendations. Not only high end but i tested out a lot of drugstore foundations also. As we are transitioning into spring i decided to do a declutter series of my makeup, including my foundations. So i decided to dedicate the next few months to hammering out foundation reviews. Talking everything foundation related, from foundation and bb cream reviews, tools for application, primers, which skin-type suits which foundation and much more. Foundation is by far my favourite makeup product to test out and purchase, and its the one area ( along with tools ) that i put the most money into. I treat my foundations as i would skincare. In the mean time lets get started with my entire foundation collection and look at some of the items that will be getting mentioned....

Now, it has been a few months since i last did a monthly favourites. I had aimed to do my yearly favourites but my health decided to throw a spanner in the works. I found myself in December and January battling one thing after another, The Flu, Viral infections and Tonsillitis. I tried to keep active on my Instagram at least. I am still not 100% myself but i have more energy than i did so am glad to be back blogging. My last favourites were back in November which you can view here and quite a few products in that are still favourites of mine. I tested out a great deal of new products in December before i got ill and throughout January i mostly concentrated on skincare items. I am excited to share the items that i have loved throughout December and January...
