February Favourites

2 March 2013

Maybelline Super Stay Gel Nail Color in Mint For Life
I have a bit of a thing for green nails, and this is my favourite mint shade, as featured in this post
Wet n Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink
I got this in my drugstore swap with Michelle (post to follow shortly), and have fallen in love. This is the nicest pink blush I've ever come across, and is packed with a flattering shimmer
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush
My perfect berry lip. Moisturising, a little bit glossy, and a lovely shade. This has sold me on the Revlon balm stains
Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation
My favourite drugstore foundation, and the one I'm reaching for on a daily basis as I'm nearly out my YSL. I like to mix the shades 120 vanilla and 130 shell for a skin-like finish
Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Conditioner
I've been making do with 'cheap' conditioners lately because I'm skint, but I saw this at a CCO for £16 and decided to give it a go. I've only used this a couple of times but I'm really enjoying it – it feels lightweight but nourishing
Tea Tree Oil
I mentioned in my recent skin care routine post that I've been really enjoying steaming my face with tea tree. I've got through almost a full bottle of the stuff this month so I think I need to use it more sparingly, but I've already bought a back up
Elf Powder Brush
Another product from the lovely Michelle (I'm a lucky lady). This works really well at evenly distributing a light layer of powder, and I want another for blending foundation – I love it so much that I've thrown out my Real Techniques powder brush
Sephora Glass Nail File
I never really bothered looking after my nails, they were always healthy enough, but since having acrylics over Christmas they've become really weak and flakey. This feels much more gentle to use on nails than your traditional emery board

So there we have my first ever monthly favourites post. I know it's a bit of an essay, so let me know if you don't want to see these going forward! Which products were you loving through February?


  1. Nice post and I definitely think you should continue these each month! I just bought the Revlon foundation yesterday and I'm really excited to use it over the next few weeks! x


  2. the nearly naked foundation has been a big rave this month, still not sure if to buy it, but great post! :)


  3. i used to love the elf powder brush, it applies foundation so nicely too, not just powder! revlon's balm stain in crush really does give the perfect berry lip!xx

  4. Glass nail files seem so much better for your nails, I definitely prefer using them to a standard emery board. I love the elf powder brush, I always used to use it to apply my liquid foundation but then I purchased the Sigma F80 so I'm addicted to that now!

  5. LOVE the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation. I've defintely been finding mixing shades has been the best option for me too. The colours all seem a bit too dark/too light!


  6. Everyone seem to love the Revlon foundation I haven't gotten on with it as well. x


  7. The elf brush is one of my favorites! It works wonders and it's only 3 USD
