February 2013 Favourites!

Hi everyone,

I haven’t done a favourites post in a while so I thought I would write a February faves as there are a few products I have been using non-stop recently.

Essie Nail Varnish in Flirty Fuchsia

I really love this bright, neon pink nail varnish from Essie but unfortunately I think it has now been discontinued. I thought I would still give it a mention though in case you are able to find it on eBay or somewhere. It has a sort of matte finish but I usually put a top coat over it as I prefer it shiny and of course this also helps it last longer before it starts to chip :)

Marc Jacobs Eau So Fresh (£48 for 100ml)

My mum got me this perfume for Christmas and I have been wearing it almost every day ever since! It’s a lovely, flesh, floral scent that reminds me of spring and sunny days. Marc Jacobs always does really cute bottles for his perfumes and this one is no exception and it looks really pretty sat on top of my dressing table.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Peach Petal (£6.99)

I had been looking for a really nice nude lipgloss for a while and a few people had recommended this one to me. It’s perfect for a simple, nude lip and looks fab on its own or with a nice peach coloured lipstick. This is has quickly become one of my favourite drugstore / highstreet lipglosses and is great value for money.

Avon Ideal Luminous Highlighter in Rivitalised (£7.50)

This product is meant to be a highlighter but I have found that it’s very pigmented for a highlighter and have been instead using it as a blusher. You do need to build it up a bit when using it in this way but the finish is a lovely, glowing pink blush. It does make a nice highlighter too but I’ve found that you only need to use it very sparingly or it looks a bit too pink for me.

Carmex Vanilla Lip Balm (£2.49)

I’m a big fan of Carmex lip balms but I particularly love the new vanilla flavour they have brought out. I have had such dry lips recently but this balm has been great at helping to keep them soft and hydrated and the vanilla flavour is a bonus as I love anything that is vanilla scented or flavoured.

So there you have the products that I have been constantly reaching for throughout February. This month has gone so fast and I can’t believe we are already in March; it will be summer before we know it!

Which products have you been using non-stop this month? Have you tried any of the products I have mentioned in this post?

Thanks for reading :) xx
