February Favourites

Another month gone, time for a post to share my favourites from February. Pretty much all of these are beauty products, but hey, it’s what I’m digging at the moment!

Colour Pop Double Entendre Palette

Another ColourPop palette. I’m straight addicted. I want them all. This one is their neutral everyday palette. I have a nude every palette from Maybelline too, but I prefer this one. There’s definitely less fallout, and the colours are a lot warmer! Plus the packaging is just cuter. I’ve been wearing it everyday since I bought it a week ago.

Becca Shimmering Skin Opal Highlighter

You may recognize this from the Sephora kit I bought recently. This highlighter had been on my try list for so long, and I’m so happy it didn’t disappoint. It’s so creamy and pretty, and like with the above, I’ve been wearing it everyday since I received it. I love it!

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer


Another thing on my list for ages. The formula for this is again so good! It’s not drying, and doesn’t settle into creases. It offers full coverage, covering up blemishes, uneven skin tone and brightens up my under eye. I will say though, that I got the medium shade which works well. But I sort of wish I got light medium so it brightens more as well as conceals. Plus, as my tan fades when I get into the colder seasons, it may not work as well. But that’s a problem for future Angela. Right now, I am loving this shade and this concealer!

Derma E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum

I got a sample size from a subsciption box last year. I loved it! It smelt delicious and did help to brighten my skin after continued use. I was sad when it ran out and decided to try other products. However, this has been in the back of my mind still, so eventually I caved and bought a full size. I am so happy I did, and use it everyday!

Oasis Water Bottle

The only non beauty product. But I’ve been loving this all summer really. It’s important to stay hydrated, but obviously even more when it’s hot. I go through at least two bottles a day, sometimes more as I keep up with doing exercises in the evening. Lately,  I’ve been preferring doing yoga. It’s just too hard to keep doing a high-intensity workout with it so hot. Also, this is the type of water bottle that keeps cold water cold, which is my preferred form of water.

I also thought I’d like to include five of my favourite posts from this past month!

The cutest DIY I’ve seen on Pinterest! I had a lot of fun creating these.

Weighing in on the conversation of whether to take photos with your phone, or a DSLR.

Another beauty post, but this time I try out a sephora kit, which took forever to get!

    1. It is a neutral palette, and I could see how the shades would be quite common. Lucky, my collection is small, so I was happy to add these haha!
