Hi there! It’s the end of the month, so it’s time for my monthly favourites. As always, I picked three favourites of all the products I reviewed this month. But since I loved more than three products, I have a few honourable mentions as well. So let’s get to my favourites!
3rd place – Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner 038 Allure
I love this lipliner. Whilst it’s not my all-time favourite, it’s definitely one of my favourite lipliners. If you’d like to read the review, click here.
Runner-Up – L’Oréal Youth Code Luminizer Serum
I’m glad that I bought this serum when I found it at my local B&M Bargains store. It’s so good! I reviewed this serum a few days ago. If you’d like to read my review, click here.
WINNER – Flower Pharm Wild Rose Body Products
I know the winner should be 1 product – but I don’t think it would have made sense to have these 3 Flower Pharm products take gold, silver and bronze. So I decided that Flower Pharm’s entire Wild Rose collection would be my number 1. Hey, it’s my blog, and I can do whatever I want with it! 😉 I reviewed these fantastic products earlier this month.

Now onto the honourable mentions! I really enjoyed Superdrug’s Orange & Black Lava Face Mask and Montagne Jeunesse’s Glacial Spa Face Mask. These two masks were new to me, and I’m glad I finally tried them! I also need to say that I fell in love with Madly Kenzo again. This fragrance is just lovely!
Have you tried any of these products? Which products did you like best this month? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Thursday 23 Feb – Nail Of The Day
Friday 24 Feb – Superdrug Orange & Black Lava Exfoliating Face Mask
Thursday’s post was another nail post. I did a colourful foil mani. Click here to read the post. And on Friday I reviewed Superdrug’s (fairly new) Orange & Black Lava Exfoliating Mask. If you’d like to read this post, click here.
Oh, and I’d like to give you an update on the progress I’ve made with my Sleek Au Naturel palette. A little while back I told you that I’m trying to finish this eye palette. If you’d like to read the post, click here. Anyway, I’ve now emptied 5 of the 12 pans, I’ll be emptying 2 more pans soon (pans 3 and 6, top row), and I’m also concentrating on the dark matte shades (pans 3 and 5, bottom row). Not bad, eh? Feel free to let me know what you think! 🙂
And this is it for this week. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Hi there! If you’ve read yesterday’s post, you know that there are quite a few beauty products that I have several back-ups of. So I thought it would be very fitting to make today’s post about one of these products. 😀 Now meet Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner 038 Allure.
Allure is one of my favourite lipliners. It’s a true full-colour lipliner that doubles up as a (matte) nude lipstick. This lipliner is on the softer side, so it’s quick and easy to apply. However, lipliners can be drying, so I always use a bit of lip balm (for a demi-matte look) or lip gloss (for a slightly glossy look – like in the picture above) before I apply any lipliner.
Whilst the lip balm (or gloss) underneath the lipliner will lose its sheen within a few hours, the colour (= the actual lipliner) will stay put all day. Sure, if I eat fatty and greasy foods for lunch, the lipliner will suffer. However, when I’m at work I don’t eat junk food for lunch, so I’m pretty safe! 🙂
What I actually wanted to say is… I think this lipliner is great. Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners are available in several colours. This shade, 038 Allure, seems to have been discontinued. However, I just had a look at Rimmel’s web site, and it appears they’re still doing two brownish nude shades.
What do you think of using lipliners instead of lipsticks? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading! 🙂
