February Favourites

Hello my friends!

It's about time I write a post about my February Favourites, isn't it? To be honest, I don't have many favourites this months since I have been using practically almost the same products but I thought you would be interested in reading about it!

♡ Face 

Garnier Pure Active Energizer Gel: I keep talking about this marvellous gel and I will be repurchasing it once I run out of it. It's perfect and doesn't cost more than 4 euros. I'm actually looking forward to buying the Miscellar Water now because I've read tones and tones of reviews so I think I may do it soon. Anyway, this gel is wonderful and it helps so much my skin when it's dry and even when it's dry/oily. 

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation: I'm so glad I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Although I think the tone is a bit darker on my skin, it ends up blending perfectly and doesn't look like I've used nutella as my make up - it actually makes my skin look less pale, a tiny little bit tanner and very natural - like there is barely a contrast between my neck and face. But anyway, this product is perfect!

♡ Eyes 

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: Still my favourite. It's the only palette I'm using at the moment although I have plenty of eyeshadows, I just can't get over how awesome the Naked Basics is!

♡ Lips 

Claire's Lipstick in 'Berry': I was very surprised about this lipstick and it still is. Although it's a dark tone and I don't think I'll be wearing this often anymore since Spring is coming, the matte tone doesn't leave my lips dry and I don't need to reapply it often either. Who thought Claire's would sell nice lipsticks? I think I'm going to repurchase from them, but a different colour for sure.

Claire's Crayon Stick Lip Butter in 'Strawberry Milkshake': This lip butter is quite nice. It leaves a pinky colour on my lips that I don't really like though; however I think the flavour is amazing and my lips are perfectly moisturised so good for Claire's again!

Labello Lip Balm: I'm pretty sure EVERYONE has a lip balm from labello. I got it not so long ago because I needed a new lip balm - a normal one, without any flavour otherwise I'd be tasting my own lips awkwardly in front of people - and I like how my lips feel moisturised and glossy. I've been using this one a lot since my lips have been feeling a bit chapped and when I go to uni, the weather is a bit different because it's closer to the mountains.

Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in '104 Passion': I love red lips and I think it's the colour that flatters me the most. I keep using this but I don't want to use it way too much! So I need to find a nice lipstick with a really good red shade. Which one would you recommend?

♡ Nails 

Both nailpolish made an appereance in my January Favourites post and they're the ones I've been using the most this month. I'm in love with them.
Rimmel London 60 Seconds in '200 Princess Pink' is such a lovely pink colour. Very classy and elegant although I use like 2/3 coats for it to look perfect for me.
Catrice Cosmetics Ultimate Nail Lacquer in '060 Bloody Mary To Go' my favourite red shade at the moment!

♡  Hair 

Thank god I found this hair mask! The Schwarzkopf hair repair mask for damaged hair is incredibly good. I keep recommending this to my friends. My hair feels soft and nice, specially if I combine it with the shampoo. It's perfect!

♡ Accessories 

My bargain brushes from DealExtreme are really good. They all have synthetic hair and they're incredibly travel friendly. I've been using these a lot since I got them so I recommend them. The hair doesn't fall off and the result is great! Everyone needs some bargain brushes every now and then.

What are your February Favourites?

I hope you're all having a lovely Saturday!
