February Favourites 2014

1. L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Extra Black Mascara

I picked this up on a whim despite not actually needing any more mascara at the moment. I have way too many already that need using up. I didn't intend to get the "Extra Black" one and I'm not sure how much more black this is than the original one. Black is black isnt it?
It gives my lashes exactly the right kind of volume that I want and some length too and it has quickly become one of my favourite mascaras.

2. Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil

I've been using this for about a month now and I really like it so far. I don't want to say too much about it though because there will be a blogpost about it on the blog later this week.

3. Essie- Forever Yummy

I was looking for the perfect classic red nailpolish and first wanted to get Essie A-List. When I compared them in the shop though I found that A-List was a bit too blue toned for me so I picked up Forever Yummy instead and haven't looked back since. It is opaque with one coat although I usually apply two coats, just to make sure. It is easy to apply thanks to the wide and rounded brush and it dries fairly quickly aswell. But most importantly, it looks wonderful.

4. Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops

The one thing I really dislike about painting my nails is waiting for them to dry. Nine times out of ten I've been waiting patiently for my nails to dry only to leave a dent or mark on the polish at some point because they hadn't dried completely through to the bottom (if that makes sense). Now that I'm using the Essence Nail Art Express Dry Drops this problem has got a lot better. The clear, slightly oily liquid is super easy to apply because the little bottle comes with a pipette to drop one or two drops on each nail. I'm not sure how the magic works here (I think it evaporates some ingredient of the nailpolish and makes it dry quicker because of it) but it does the trick. Somethink I'm definitely going to repurchase.

Have you tried any of these products?
