February was the month of new discoveries and after January's monthly favourites incorporated some old favourites, this month I dabbled with less familiar products.
The foundation When I first discovered the extensive range of w7 cosmetics that TJ Hughes carries, I knew that at under £5 a product, trying a varied amount of products would be possible. I opted to try the 'Captain Matte' foundation that I talked in more depth about here. The creamy formula blends nicely into the skin and looks subtly matte without looking too chalky. Like any drugstore product, touch ups are required throughout the day but for the most part my shiny t-zone stays oil free when i've used this foundation.
The cleanser Admittedly, this is an old favourite of mine which has barely had any air time here on GGMH but it is a saviour product that I come back to when my skin is playing up. The rose scented balm is warmed in the palm of your hand and then blended into the face with warm water quite literally, melting the make-up from your face.
The lipstick For the days when I don't want to use the final ounces of my 'Girl about town' lippy, I turn to 'As you want Victoria' by Rimmel to give me my punchy pink fix. The super moisturising formula keeps the lips hydrated whilst displaying highly pigmented colour.
The eye lashes I don't want to say too much about the Jica eyelash extensions as there will be a post popping up on Tuesday all about this magical product. Think super fluttery, voluminous (looks-like-you've-had-extensions) lashes incorporated easily into your everyday mascara routine.
The eyeshadow 'Toasted' by Urban Decay has long since been one of my favourite eye colours to wear, the perfect mix of lilac toned bronze that can be worn for a day or night look. The buttery soft shadow isn't too powdery and works best when pressed into the eyelid.
