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.

  1. I've been trying to purchase cruelty free brands recently too, I love the look of the lipgloss! x


  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)

  3. That blush looks really pretty I love Illamasqua blushers :) x

  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!
