February Favourites

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I finally caved and bought the Naked 3 Palette at the beginning of February. I'm so pleased I did because I've been loving it and have barely used any of my other eyeshadows. I love that all the shades are really wearable and that they can all be worn with each other.  

Garnier Body Intensive 7 Days Nourishing Lotion

I've heard great things about this body lotion and also saw this featured on another blog although my memory fails me and I can't remember whose blog it was! Anyway I love anything mango scented so decided to try this for myself. I don't know how I survived without it! I have never used such a fast absorbing lotion before, which is great because I hate sticky creams that take ageeees to soak in!

Real Techniques Powder Brush

Along with many others, I love all the RT brushes and own quite a few! For powder I used to use a MAC brush, however my one has seen better days and is really past its best now. So I decided to treat myself to a new powder brush and of course it had to be the Real Techniques one! I absolutely love it and it was definitely a worthwhile investment!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light

This has been a product in my makeup kit for quite a while now. Originally I had the Medium shade but it was far too dark and the Light shade is perfect! I use this daily and take it out with me too for touch ups during the day. 

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle

This was a product that had been on my wish list for quite some time. I finally caved in and bought it at the beginning of January with my MAC voucher. I absolutely love it and it's the perfect highlight. 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser 

I bought this way back in November to try because I was fed up with my makeup sitting in my pores and highlighting them for the world to see. I tried it and absolutely hated it. I didn't like being able to smell the tea tree throughout the day and it made my makeup so patchy. However I recently decided to try it again and I have fallen in love with it. It's so soothing and creates the perfect base for my foundation. I have no idea why I hated it so much before!

The Body Shop Vitamin E Illuminating Moisture Cream

I love the Vitamin E range from The Body Shop and already own a fair few products from the range. This was one product I hadn't tried so when they emailed me with a promotion I decided to give it a try. I absolutely love this and use it as my daily moisturiser now as it gives me a lovely subtle glow without being a bright and shiny beacon!

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in 07 Plum

I've wanted to try a cream blush for a while now and came across this one whilst having a mooch online. On Feel Unique this blush comes in three shades, however in Boots, it only comes in this shade. On FU the Plum shade was sold out so I ordered it from Boots instead as it seemed like a popular choice. I absolutely love the shade and although it's called Plum, it's actually quite pinky. I love the consistency and finish of this so definitely want to try the other shades now!

The Body Shop Brow Definer in Brunette

I'm a big fan of MAC's Eye Brows which I've used for quite a while now. However for £13 it is quite expensive, so I decided to look for a cheaper brow pencil and save my MAC one for special occasions. I ordered this one from The Body Shop when they had 40% off which meant instead of £8 I got it for £4.80. I'm not sure I would pay full price for this but it's the perfect shade and a lovely consistency. 

Finally I have a couple of non-beauty favourites this month too…

The first of my non-beauty favourites is this No Wheat chocolate and orange wafer bar. I have to admit the packaging isn't exactly enticing but I have definitely formed an addiction to these! I'm not meant to be eating wheat or chocolate at the moment so these are the perfect substitute being wheat and dairy free!

My second non-beauty favourite is my new phone case. I've been after a new phone case for a while as my one had seen better days and had cracks all over it! I took to ebay to find a new one and saw this one. I'm a fan of the Lion King but the main reason for buying it was the meaning behind Hakuna Matata. 

What were your February favourites? Were any of them the same as mine?

    1. Mmm the smell of the Vitamin E range is so lovely! I don't like anything that is too strong smelling or sticky so it's perfect! X

  7. I will have to try the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, it sounds so dreamy like the perfect highlighter! And I love the Vitamin E moisture cream as well, so hydrating and light on the skin. x
