Good morning loves, today I bring you my February favourites. I’ve been wanting to do monthly favourite videos for my YouTube channel, but I thought I would start it up here first. Rather than having an endless list of favourites, I thought I would do a post on my five beauty favourites of the month. That way I get to share with you the products I really have been loving a lot, and using over and over throughout the month.
1. Trilogy Rosehip Oil
Firstly, we have the Trilogy Rosehip Oil. I’ve been using this daily for around two months now and I am really impressed with it. My skin has been so dehydrated recently due to the cold and excess heating I use to warm my room up. This has been a saviour, it quenches my skin and makes it look and feel a lot healthier. It keeps my dry skin at bay, and has quickly become a product I reach for day and night. What I love more about it, is that is very affordable in comparison to other face oil products I have used in the past (Sunday Riley Flora – £70 a pop!). Also it doesn’t really have a scent to it, meaning it doesn’t aggravate my husband when I put it on at night in bed. I have just purchased Rosehip Oil from The Ordinary for a cheaper, so I will be doing a comparison post to see how it compares against this beauty.
You can pick this up [here] for £19.50
2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Dazed
Next, a liquid lipstick. If you caught my latest blog post [read it here], I talked about the Anastasia Liquid Lipsticks. My favourite surprisingly isn’t one of the nude shades, instead I have been wearing Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Dazed over and over again. It’s not too bright, but bright enough to make me feel like Spring is imminent. The consistency is perfect, and it feels good on my lips.
You can pick it up [here] in a set of 3 for £26.00
Top to Bottom: Peach Smootie, I'm Peachless (Duo Chrome), Cocoa Bear, Magic Act (Foiled), Havoc (Duo Chrome) and Pretentious
3. Makeup Geek Eye Shadows
Makeup Geek eyeshadows have really made a positive impact in my life. I rarely pick up any of my palettes and keep dipping into my custom Makeup Geek palette every day. The shadows are just so easy to work with, blend beautifully and have great colour pay off. Every time I wore eyeshadow this month, I dipped into this palette. Even if it is just for an under brow highlight shade, in the form of Peach Smoothie. I do have one complaint with one of the shadows, I don’t like the black shadow Corrupt. I will be replacing that with Anastasia Beverly Hills eye shadow in Noir, which is the best black I have ever used and is so rich and pigmented which unfortunately Corrupt isn’t.
You can pick some up [here] for £4.95
4. Fenty Match Stix
I didn’t think I would like the Fenty Match Stix quite as much as I actually have. If I am honest, I bought the Fenty Match Stix Trio in Medium 200 and left it in its packaging for months and months. However now that I finally have cracked open my package, I cannot get enough of the shade Mocha. Head over to my Instagram [link] and have a look at how I use it. This is the perfect contour shade for me, and so easy to apply and blend. I really love using it and it has got me back into contouring, which is a bit of a necessity at the moment as my face is filling up!
5. Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream
Last but definitely not least, Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream. So many people have raved about this and it took me a while to actually pick it up. It is such a generous little pot and a little really goes a long way. I use it daily and find that it really nourishes my under eyes, it’s a lovely texture and feels really nice to apply. It feels quite rich, which is exactly what my parched skin needs. I don’t know if has done anything in terms of reducing eye bags and fine lines, but to be honest I wasn’t expecting it to. I just needed it to make my under eyes feel better and anything more is a bonus. It is hands down, the best eye cream I have used.
You can pick it up [here] from £26.00
I hope you liked my give beauty favourites of February, I want to make this a regular thing so hopefully you’ll see a post or video like this on a monthly basis. I don’t think it is going to be easy thinking up items, as I am a bit of a creature of habit and like to keep using the same thing over and over, but at least you’ll get to see what products I truly adore. Let me know what your favourites are! Speak soon, Tanzina x
