Most Loved: February Favourites

Favourite February Beauty Products

St Moriz Medium Self Tanning Mousse- Forgive me Vita Liberata for I have sinned!! I've tried the dark lotion but found the colour a tad strange, the medium looks more natural on my skin tone and with my purse a little empty I've been reaching for this mousse a couple of times a week!

Vaseline Rosy Lips- with Aloe Vera and Almond oil, and a lovely rosy colour I've been using this old staple throughout the day to give my sad winter lips some moisturising colour.

Rimmel Stay Matte ConcealerRimmel Stay Matte Dual Action Concealer in 030 Classic Beige- this is my favourite concealer of the moment, it can be quite stiff on bare skin but blends wonderfully on top of foundation. It also has a green core (that includes Salicylic Acid, Cotton Powder, Cucumber and Chamomile) which helps to heal blemishes and works as a subtle corrector on any redness.

Opi Euro Centrale Can't Find my Czechbook- I've been wearing this colour constantly since receiving the mini set and and have been complimented on its unusual colour, read my review of the set here.

Stila Eyeshadow in Makalu and Urban Decay Eyeshadow in RoachStila Mineral Matte Eyeshadow in Makalu- My 'signature makeup' always includes a black winged out shadow liner applied with an angled brush and this shadow is the best I've ever used for this purpose. The texture is soft, silky and so easy to sweep along the lash line. The colour payoff is the best of any shadow I own and even though it is blackest black it has very faint warm undertones when blended so doesn't look stark or panda-y.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Roach- I just love this rich metallic brown, if not blended out on my lid I've been using it as a thin line in the inner corners to give a metallic copper glint to the edges of a smoky liner. Urban Decay's X was also a big contender this month.

Maybelline 24 hour Gel Liner
Maybelline 24hr Gel Liner in Black- I love this liner for its deep dark colour and the way it can be easily swiped along the lashline. Unfortunately it didn't pass the naughty sleep-in-makeup test so on me doesn't last 24 hours (but I do have oily lids).

W7 Candy Floss and W7 Africa
W7 Candy Floss Brightening Face Powder and Africa Bronzing Powder-  The Candy Floss is a light sheer pink powder with a hint of light reflecting shimmer, a lovely colour to brighten and highlight the face. 
Despite being called a bronzer, the Africa powder comes out a bright brownish pink (looks much nicer than that description!) it does give a bronzed effect but ive been using it as a blusher and I love it for livening up the face. Reviews and swatches on both coming soon (possible Benefit dupe alert).
Stila Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser
Stila Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser- I picked this up as a bargain and think Stila have stopped making it but this is the only tinted moisturiser I have ever rated enough to actually wear out the house. There's quite a difference in colours so I use light 02 and 03 mixed together and as its so bendable I can use an extra layer anywhere I need more coverage. With SPF 30 this will be perfect for the summer.
Special Mention to Alien by Thierry Mugler- this is my all time favourite fragrance and its been the only perfume I've used in February. It's a gorgeous deep warm scent and it comes across to me as a night time smell (if that makes any sense). Ive got a refill bottle and it has lasted me ages!

Have you tried any of these products? What's your most loved of February?

    1. My friend said to me it makes her look dirty as well, it does have a bit of a strange guide colour. I wear it to bed but always wash it off before I go out!
      Ive seen the skin base on a few people and it looks lovely, will have to try it out I think! x

    1. It is really nice, it can be worn really lightly to brighten the face or built up a bit for a nice cheek colour. Not expensive either which is what I like to see haha x

  3. I am looking for a new tinted moisturizer or BB cream with a high SPF. The Stila looks perfect. Too bad they quit making it :( Great post!


    1. Its such a shame, I think I might stock up before stock completely runs out as £1.99 down from £22 is an amazing bargain x

  4. I have read some good things about the w7 blushers but I dont know were to buy them??


    1. I bought mine from Xtras-online, they do them at glitterstore.co.uk as well and they might have them in a chemist if you have a big one near you x
