Soft Pastels | What I Wore


Jacket: similar  |  Sweater: similar  |  Jeans: New Yorker  |  Boots: Deichmann 


Welcome to another What I Wore Wednesday post! We finally got a bit of good lighting in order to get some good full shots of the outfit, and since spring has arrived, I will try to do these more often actually. Today's outfit is one incorporating soft pastels, which I am loving now that the weather is finally getting warmer. I've been wearing this roll neck sweater a lot and I feel like it goes really well with a simple leather jacket on top for extra warmth. My jeans are also type lighter type, not really those dark navy type of colours. I paired this outfit with my black ankle boots and a navy bag. I wore this outfit whilst running some errands the other day, in case you were curious. 
Just as a side note, I recently placed an order for some more spring fashion items and I was wondering whether to do a haul post about those when they arrive. I am really excited to get them and try on different outfit combinations with them. I'll keep you updated on that! Thank you for reading!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner



If you've followed my blog for a while now, then you will know I am a big fan of Rimmel products in general. I feel like most of the products I have tried from their range have been really good quality ones, especially considering that they come from the drugstore and that the prices are very afforable on these. I have tried a few of their eyeliners as well, including the GlamEyes Liquid Liner, the Scandaleyes Kohl Pencil and, now, the Scandaleyes Micro Precision Liner. 

I have to say from the very beginning that this one that I'm reviewing today has got to be my favourite so far. Although they're all pretty pigmented and last really long on your eyes, I prefer using this one over the others for just one simple reason. It helps me achieve a straight (ish) and clean line on my top lashline with very little effort. I find that it makes the job a whole lot easier for me and, even though this one is the least pigmented out of all three that I mentioned (although it still IS pigmented enough), it is my go-to eyeliner at the moment.  

If you've not noticed this from the pictures already, it has got a pen-like applicator, which is probably why I find it way easier to use and I really do feel like it gives you more precision, as it claims to do. It lasts the entire day on my eyes and I honestly don't have much to complain about when it comes to this product. 

Have you every tried this eyeliner? What's your favourite eyeliner to use so far?

February Beauty Favourites


I feel like I have not posted one of these monthly favourites on my blog in what seems like forever, in spite of having posted videos on my channel of these. I figured it was about time I took them to the blog as well, so here are the products that I have been using and loving the most in the month of February. 

My beloved Urban Decay Naked 3 palette absolutely had to be included in this, since I've been wearing those eyeshadows pretty much every single day - I just feel like the Naked palettes are the most trustworthy ones, you know they'll look good and stay on for a long time on your eyes. I've been also enjoying very much to combine these eyeshadows with the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Pink Gold, which is just the perfect base for this palette. The last eye product is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Precision eyeliner, which I'll be doing a full review on very soon. I like that it helps me make a very precise line (as it claims) and just makes the job a whole lot easier for me. 

My favourite lip combo of the month has been a base of Essence Lipstick in Natural Beauty (shade 07) and a dab of L'Oreal Shine Caresse Lipgloss in Lolita on top, both of these being rosy colors with a lilac-y tone to them. 

For skin and body care, I also have two products worth mentioning. The No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration mask is an absolute life saver when it comes to dry skin. If you've been struggling with dry skin (like I have for the past winter months), then you'll adore how this product makes your skin feel. For bodycare, the Zoella Beauty body lotion has been my go-to moisturizer. I just adore that lovely and subtle scent it has, plus the fact that it dries really quickly.   


Hope you enjoyed reading this post! What products have you been loving in the past month?
