Make Up Bag: February 2015

Choosing a few things from my make up collection at the start of last month seemed to work out really well. I used them pretty consistently so I've done the same for this month. If I really like them then I'll make sure to keep using them regularly, but if not I'll be parting with them because there's no sense in them just sitting in a drawer unloved.
Illamasqua Blush in Unrequited 
This was one of my very first high end beauty purchases and I've only held on to it because it's a bit sentimental, which sounds a little silly because it's just a blush. I don't think they make this shade anymore but it's a really pretty pale pink. Something tells me I'll wear this a few times and then it'll find its way back into the drawer. I should probably part with it but it reminds me of first starting my blog and I know that I won't. But I think that's okay.

Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara
A bit of a sneaky addition because this tube is almost empty and one I was using last month when I wasn't wearing Thick & Fast from Soap & Glory. I do like it but all Rimmel mascaras seem to take forever to dry on my lashes so it's one I can only wear when I have a bit of time to carefully apply it.

Lily Lolo Lip Gloss in English Rose
I'm quite keen to be more conscious with the products I purchase from now on and as Lily Lolo are cruelty free I have a feeling their beautiful products will become a very large part of my make up collection. I've had this gloss for a little while and I haven't given it enough love recently so I'll be changing that this month. Their mascara is something I'd like to try very soon too.

January Recap.
» The Collection Blush is even prettier than I remembered it being
» The Thick & Fast mascara from Soap & Glory is really good for achieving fluttery lashes.
» The Stila Lip Glaze is much too sticky & I had more hair in lip gloss incidents than anyone should ever experience.

What's your favourite thing inside your make up bag at the moment?

  2. Pink everything looks so cute together! :-) I am back in love with the Clinique cheek pop, in Ginger. It lasts really long which surprised me so much because I didn't expect that from a in between formula (cream/powder)

  4. I've not heard of Lily Lolo before, but I think that I need to look into this (any excuse!). I agree about Rimmel mascaras - they do take forever to dry, and this is not ideal in the mornings when dashing for the train!

  9. Aww your make-up bag is so cute and
    I love the colour of the blush - I always use
    quite a rusty red colour on my cheeks, but I am
    looking for a bit more of a rosy tone for spring. :)
