Monthly Favourites - February 2011

Products I've Been Loving!

A bit late, but better than never :)
These are the products i've been really liking this month! I totally tried to film a video for this months favourites.. and itd mean so much to me if you guys took a peak and subscribe to my youtube channel :D

I had fun making this video, and i really hope it turned out okay lol.. its a bit weird talking to a camera haha but im sure i'll get used to it soon! to be honest, i didnt think so at first, but editing and filming was definitely very time consuming! lol anyways, for those who still enjoy to read.. here are my feb favourites :)

Eyes -

MAC All that Glitters & white frost & Satin Taupe
swatch & review here

Buttery, smooth and pigmented, these are my go-to shadows for my daily makeup!

Glamour Doll Eyes - He Loves Me Not & Brown Eyed Girl
swatch & review here

finely miled, pigmented with gorgeous shimmer, these are great for everyday use but i prefer to use these when i want to pack on more color and shimmer!

Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Whisky and Zero
swatch & review here

This came with my naked palette and ive been using it a ton! They are really creamy, apply like a dream, and lasts all day long :) only downside is that whisky is not available separately so im going to be pretty sad when i run out! :(

Face - Blushes

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Natural
swatch & review here

Super cute packaging and design, pretty rosy pink shade with a nice sheen. Also has a light floral scent which i LOVEEE! :)

Rimmel Powder Blush in Santa Rose
swatch & review here
A muted natural pink shade that gives off a really pretty natual looking flush. I use this everyday for schooldays just to brighten up my skin without overdoing it :)

Hard Candy Blush in Honeymoon
swatch & review here

My go-to blush/highlighter! I always layer this on top of whatever blush im wearing concentrating on the higher points of my cheeks to give a really pretty glow. Its a gorgeous light peachy shade with lots of sheen so it works great as a highlighter!

Lips & Skincare -

Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine
Smells soo good, quite moisturizing and has a light sheer pink tint. Ive been using this alot to prep my lips and i really love the smell of this!

Mentha Lip Shine in Spiced Latte
Clear gloss packed with tons of gorgeous silver shimmer! Although when swatched it looks like way too much shimmer, you dont notice it too much when applied. This has a super yummy minty caramel-y smell and is great because the formula is not sticky at all!

Neutrogena Oil Free Fresh Moisture
My all time favourite moisturizer! I've switched back to using this and my skin is totally loving it :) its very light and fresh, absorbs into your skin quickly and then dries to a smooth surface. love love love!

Brushes -

Sedona Lace 12 Piece Professional Set in Pink
pics & review here (face) and here (eyes)

This set has all the essential brushes i need! great quality, super soft, and for a really good price!

Sigma F80 Flat Top Kabuki Brush
pics & review here

My favourite brush to apply foundation with :) The flat top works really well to stipple and buff in your foundation and the bristles are really great because they dont absorb in a ton of foundation allowing you to waste less product!

Nails -
Forever 21 polishes
swatch & review here

Really impressed with these! Bought 2 for about $3-4 each and tested it out by appling two coats with one layer of topcoat. One week later, i only had minimal chipping! Definitely impressed because im usually really rough on my nails and most polishes only last several days on me haha.

Barry M nail paint
swatch & review here

Won this from a twitter giveaway from BarryM and i LOVE this shade! Its a bright fun hot pink and the formula is great too! easy to apply with minimal streaking and it dries to a nice glossy finish :) you probably could pass with one coat although i usually like do two coats :)


and thats it! those are the products that i've been really liking this month. i would love to hear what yours were :D have a great week everyone!
