February Favourites

Another month, another lineup of favourite books and beauty goodness. There's also a candle in there which I'm really regretting not buying another one of. Seriously, the regret is super real. There's also a bunch of eye products worth writing home about as well. Here's what I've loved during February...

Aesop Resurrection Rinse-Free Hand Wash-A handwash seems like such a bizarre inclusion but y'know what, Aesop do it really well. Cult Beauty describe this as an upper class hand sanitiser and it really is. Would I say this is an essential? Not really but unlike other hand sanitisers that make your hands feel gross and are drying, this one feels really nourishing. It helps that it smells divine as well, and a little goes a long way so it's not something you'd have to repurchase tonnes, unless you are a germaphobe. 

Don't Worry, It Gets Worse by Alida Nugent-Twenty-somethings and soon to be twenty somethings, you need to read this book. Alida Nugent's collection of life essays are so relatable, it's kind of scary. At the same time though it's also reassuring to know you're not the only one who doesn't have their life all in order. Does anybody actually ever have that though? I highly recommend this book if you want something both hilarious and insightful to read.

L'Oreal Superliner Superstar*-This is the liquid liner for liner klutzes like myself. It's super easy to apply and it lasts all day. There's not much more to it than that. If you're in the market for a new liquid liner though you should definitely check this one out.

Isehan Heroine Make Mascara-There's just something about conditioning, polymer containing mascaras that I love. It lengthens, curls and makes your lashes look all kinds of fabulous. It's not the easiest to remove, which seems to be typical of waterproof mascaras but I can overlook that. 

Ecoya Sweet Fruits & Pink Champagne candle, limited edition *sobs*-I feel mean talking about this candle because as far as I know it's no longer on sale anywhere. Cue Kim Kardashian's crying face. This candle smells divine, like tropical juices or fruit smoothies. It's quite possibly my favourite candle ever, aside from Diptyque's Figuier. If Ecoya bring it back this Christmas I am definitely going to buy the largest size of this. It's amazing.

Carol by Patricia Highsmith-This was a book I don't think I expected to enjoy as much as I did but I loved it. You can read my initial thoughts here. Carol, or The Price of Salt as it was initially titled is beautifully written. It's the kind of novel that you want to read extra slowly to savour, but at the same time you won't want to put it down. It's that captivating. You should definitely check out the movie as well. It's one of the most visually stunning films I've seen in a long time.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Leather in Creamy Beige*-The color tattoo that changed my tune on color tattoos. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only blogger person on the internet that does not get the mass hysteria surrounding these cream eyeshadows. As I said in my original post, if this is a reformulation it is spot on. This applies so creamily and helps to neutralise the lids. It's one of those colours that just adds a little something extra to the eyes and I love it for that.
