Febbie Faves...

Howdy doody folks?

As we have well and truly kissed goodbye to February, it's time for Febbie Favourites!

Now these are just going to be things I'm loving right now that I havent previously raved about already (nope no more E45 and Volume Million Lashes all get the idea I love those all throughout the year).

I recently finished my E45 and thought, I'll wait a while and finish one of my many accumulated moisturisers before re-purchasing so I've been loving my Body Shop Mango body butter.  It's specially formulated for very dry skin and has a very thick consistency. I've been using this on my face for those stubborn dry patches at night, on my footsies to get them nice and prepped for spring and summer and anywhere I've needed it really.  It has a bit of a mango yoghurt sort of smell which I love and the smell lingers on the skin for a good few hours.
I've given my Photoready a rest for the past few weeks as my skin has been in pretty good nick and I've been using a sheer wash of clinique's supermoisture foundation, It's a lightweight yet kind of thick foundation with buildable coverage and leaves your skin with a dewy finish (think photoready but lighter).  It doesn't feel heavy on the skin, in fact I hardly even notice it when I'm wearing it.
I've also given my elf black cream liner a rest and been using a pencil liner smudged on the top lash-line and top and bottom water-lines for a bit of a more smokey look than a solid cat-eye.  The one I happen to be using at the mo is Revlon's grow luscious in 001 Onyx, It stays put for  fair few hours but will fade on the water-line after about 4-5 hours and will smudge a little if you have oily lids but to be fair I kinda like that lived in smudgy liner look.

For my lips I've pretty much just been using balms and tints, not really a lipstick or a lipgloss sorta girl unless I'm wearing a full face of makeup but the past few weeks have been minimal makeup weeks so I've just been using my Body Shop sweet lemon lip butter sometimes with a bit of Sleek pout polish in powder pink over the top.

For the lids I've been using my Sleek limited edition eyeshadow pallette from the Avoir La Peche collection, it has some lovely spring appropriate colours, great pigmentation for the price and a lovely mix of matte and shimmery shades with a few smokey colours thrown in for good measure.

Those are really the only 'new' products I've been using last month, I'm still loving my Mac paintpot in Rubenesque and my Look Beauty blush in Rosy.
