With February being such a short month, there weren’t that many products I loved, or even tried for the first time – anyone else have this problem? Anyway, I thought I needed to still post a monthly favourites, so here it is...
The first product I need to mention is the Cute Nutrition Strawberry Daiquiri protein powder. I’ve been using it a lot to make overnight or baked proats for breakfast, during the week. I won’t lie, I originally bought this because of the flavour and the packaging – there’s also a ‘pornstar martini’ variety, which is probably just passion fruit, but I don’t know how I feel about it!
I LOOOVE my Mango tailored trousers, as anyone that follows me on any form of social media will know. I bought these when I was in Madrid at Christmas, because I was looking for some work bits and instantly fell in love with the style and pattern. Plus they are a size 8! I never shop at Mango in the UK, but maybe I should – there were so many nice bits and all of them affordable. I wear these once a week, as they’re so comfortable and just great office attire.
Next up, we have the perfect duo for fleeky AF brows. The Soap & Glory Archery 2-in-1 Brow Filling Pencil & Brush is probably the best brow pencil I’ve come across; it’s certainly a lot better than Benefit’s. Even though I bought this in ‘blonde’, it’s still quite dark and actually matches my natural brows perfectly. I use this every day without fail before using Benefit’s ready, set, brow! It’s just great for shaping and setting your brows in place. Although it’s a little pricy, it’s oh so worth it! I definitely need to get mine tinted and re-shaped before the end of next month, though.
And finally, I am obsessed with Barry M’s Flawless Mist & Fix – so much so, I have about three bottles of this stored away. I used to set my makeup at weekends only, but I’ve also started to for work, just to keep it in place all day. I found the atmosphere, particularly with the permanent air-con, played havoc with my skin and my makeup just used to slide. As this is a spray and quite dewy, it’s probably not ideal for this time of year – but I couldn’t find one with a powder finish. Let me know if you have any recommendations below.
I know this wasn’t the most exciting favourites post – but I’ll be back next month!
What were your February favourites?
Love, Lucy xx
