February Favourites | 2019

Hello lovelies,

Today I wanted to share my favourites for February with you, I apologise for it being a little late there have just been so many posts I wanted to do as well as this one.

I would love you know one of your favourites of February so comment down below!

The sun came out for a short moment in February and it was lovely but for most the month it was pretty chilly. My first favourite would have to be this lovely teddy bear jacket/coat it is so soft and cosy, it’s perfect for this time of year. I got this jacket from eBay, I had seen lots around on Depop and regular shops but decided to have a look on eBay and there were loads, I liked that on eBay there was much more variety with colour. I am definitely going to be ordering it again but in a different colour, perhaps orange rust or Khaki green. One of the other reasons I got it on eBay was because it was a lot better value than in the shops as some places are selling them for £50 and I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it so didn’t want to spend out before I knew.

My next Favourite is the Primark brow pencil, I did a review of this which you can read here Brow Emergency Kit | Review. I loved the kit and have actually been using it ever since. One of my particular favourites though is definitely the brow pencil, it’s so soft a buttery which I was completely not expecting, I thought it might have been tough and hard to get product onto the brows without hurting as it is with other cheaper product, but it really did surprise me. As it is so creamy you only need to press really lightly and it gives the brows a really natural but full look. I am very happy with this purchase and will definitely buy it again.

My next favourite is a pillow mist. I’ve been having a really tough time with my anxiety lately, making it hard to fall asleep is something that happens as a result. I thought I would give this “sleep serenity ” pillow mist a go. It is infused with camomile and lavender which are of course both very calming products. I have been spraying this on my pillow whenever I’ve had a really bad day with anxiety and I do feel it is helping me fall asleep faster. Before I used this I would lay in bed for hours just thinking, not being able to shut my mind off (I’m sure lots of you can relate). I got this product from Avon quite a while a go and it came in a set with a few other “sleep serenity” items. I believe you can purchase it on its own so when I have run out I will be repurchasing it.

My last favourite for this month is a bottle of perfume I received from my lovely boyfriend for Christmas. This perfume is called White Amber and it is from Next, I’ve been loving it! As it’s such a wearable scent I can wear it pretty much anytime. I love how it smells and it lasts all day which I think is great. I also adore the packaging I believe it works well with all of my other perfumes as they are all unique. The white ombré detail on the bottle as it’s something I don’t think I’ve seen before. This bottle of perfume is pretty big so I’m hoping it’ll last for quite a while.

Brow Emergency Kit | Review

Hello lovelies,

I hope you are all well. Today I wanted to write a review on this product I found while looking for a new brow gel in Primark.

I really like using their brow gel, it works really well and holds my brows in place for the whole day. As I was looking I couldn’t find any on their own, instead i found this Brow Emergency set.

For £2.50 I couldn’t not give it a try. As you can see within the set you get 4 items. The first is a little brow pencil, next is a spoolie, then the brow gel and lastly a pair of tweezers. For this price you are getting each item for around 62p which is incredible! I love the look of this little set, it come in a clear plastic container and on the back there is a set of pictures that are showing you the steps to this kit.

The set I got was medium brown I like the feel of the brow pencil and the gel as the packaging for both are mainly matte, i think it gives it a sleek design.

Tweezers

At first look tweezers are not the best quality in the world but for 62p you can’t complain too much. They are a classic silver colour and the size of them is pretty good as they are the same size as a regular pair. When it came to plucking the hairs they were actually pretty good, i wasn’t expecting them to be so precise and it didn’t hurt much at all!

The Brow Pencil

I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this brow pencil. As i said before I got mine in the shade  medium brown The texture of the pencil is really smooth and silky as it goes onto the brows , I  found that it also blended out really well. This shade is a little bit darker than what I would normally go for so it took me a little while to get used to them as it did give them a more bold look. To get this sort of tone you only need to press lightly on the pencil as it is really pigmented. I will definitely continue to use this product.

Spoolie

Next is the set is a little eyebrow spoolie. I love using spoolies as I find they help so much with getting the hairs all in the right direction and it helps to neaten the look up. My normal brow product is the Benefit goof proof brow pencil which comes with a spoolie on one end and the product at the other end. The handle on this spoolie is not the best quality as its plastic and quite small, apart from this its still easy to use and I think the bristles on it are really good, they are quite soft so the don’t scratch the skin underneath when you’re combing. Due to its size I think this would be a good product to put in your handbag/ travel bag.

Brow Gel

The last piece the this set is the Brow gel! As I mentioned above i really like the brow gel that Primark sell. This one has slightly different packaging and is a little bit bigger than the one i purchased previously but it works all the same. I find this brow gel really good for keeping my brows in place without putting too much product on them like other brands i have tried. What I like about this particular brand is that it doesn’t leave your brows hard or “straw like” as some other brands do. I will definitely be being this product again when it runs out.

Overall I think this buy was a success, I don’t know if i will continue to use the tweezers but I will keep them in my draw as a back up if i am going away or happen to lose my current pair. My favourite part of this set has to be the brow pencil as it really did surprise me with how well it worked.

Have you tried this brow set, or will you try it after reading? What brand is your favourite brow gel from?  Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading 🙂
