Spring Tag

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted recently I've had no ideas for good blog posts but it's half term now so I have two weeks off and I should be posting a few soon! Seeming as its spring I thought I'd do the spring tag just so I could post something because I feel so bad! 

1. Favourite Spring Nail Polish
100% the Rimmel London I heart Lasting Finish in number 45 - Misty Jade

It's a pastel/minty green colour and its my favourite colour in spring 

2. Must have spring lip colour

I don't really wear much colour on my lips but I know I'll be wearing my Mac lipstick in the shade 'faux' it's a pinky/nude colour which goes with everything (I went into more detail about it in my February favourites!)

3. Favourite item of spring clothing?

I've had this for over a year now and I wear it all through summer and spring - it's a bomber style jacket that's floral & sheer. All my friends call it a 'granny jacket' but I love it especially over like jeans a plain top or a plain play suit etc

4. Favourite flower

Cherry blossom - it's so pretty and I think I take a photo every time i see some!

5. Favourite spring candle

My Rhubarb and custard candle because it reminds me of summer and it's smells amazing and exactly like the sweets which are my favourite! Also it seems to last for ages!

6. Favourite perfume/body spray

Recently I've been loving the Soap and glory spray because it's so fresh and so affordable!

7. What is spring like where you live?

Currently it's chucking it down with rain but recently it's been sunny but there's always a breeze which drops the temperature down:(

8. Favourite thing about spring?

I love the clothes, e.g I can still wear jeans but with cute little crop tops 

9. Any plans for spring break?

I call them Easter holidays but I'm going  to London next weekend which im very excited about because London is my favourite place and next Thursday im going to Alfie's (pointlessblog) book signing which I'm so so excited for and I might do a blog post on it!  Apart from that I have a lot of revision to do which is boring but has to be done

I hope you enjoyed this mini post and I promise I'll post some more, better posts soon!

Answer some of the questions below if you want and I'll see you soon!

P.s I did skip a few of the questions because I had no answer🙈

My February Beauty Favourites

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've had mock exams at school but they're finally finished and my next exams aren't till mid June. Anyway, as it's already March (how) and I really wanted to get a post up im going to do my February Beauty Favourites💫

First off, I'm going to start with my favourite of them all and it's my Mac Lipstick on Faux. I've been wanting a Mac lipstick for ages and I was over the moon when I finally got one. I decided to go for a more nude colour so i could wear it to school and at weekends. 

It looks a lot more darker and red on the photo but it's a lot more suttle! This lipstick is a matte therefore quite drying. Well at first it felt moisterising but later on in the day it started feeling drying. It lasted quite a while but not as long as I would've hoped for. However, it doesn't bother to much!

Next, is my Collection Nude Eye Shadow Palette. It has 8 powders and a cream highlighter. The best thing about this palette is each eye shadow has number and on the back it had steps to tell you where to put it. It's great if your starting out on eye shadows (which I have because I only ever wear mascara.)

My next favourite is the Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream.

 I got this just to wear on days where I'm at home and just lazying around. It's not great on coverage, but I don't mind as its only for around the house. As it says on the packaging it's an '8-in-1 BB cream' - it:
Conceals imperfections
Helps protect against the appearance of blemishes
It's oil free & non greasy
Minimises the appearance of pores
Clarifies the skins look
Conceals redness
Hydrates and smoothes
Complements skin tone

I agree with all of these actually! It also has 2% salicylic acid in which is in spot treatment (the same amount that's in my avon emergency spot treatment) which is a bonus!

Now, onto more skin care products. First of the two skin care products is a product ive seen so many people rave about! It's the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. It states that it Removes make up + cleanes + soothes and can be used on your face, eyes and lips.

I use a tiny amount of this on a cotton pad and it removes all my makeup and my eye makeup! It's amazing, there's no harsh chemicals and it's for sensitive skin so even better! It's usually around £5 but there was a 1/3 off offer so it was only £3.30 or something but due to how long it lasts and it's quality it's defiantly worth £5!

Finally, my last beauty favourite of the month is the Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-free moisturiser in pink grapefruit. 

I have oily skin and usually with moisturisers in the past ive had to sometimes skip moisterising as it made my skin to oily. But with this I don't have that problem! It smells nice, and hydrated my skin however I have to use quite a lot! It's only a small bottle but it's the best moisturiser for my skin ive found! (If you know any other oil-free moisturisers you recommend please comment them!)

So they're my February Beauty Favourites! Thankyou for reading and comment below your February Favourtie! Also comment any blog posts you would like to see in the future!

Byeee! xox
