This Month's Favourites | February 2015

A picture of the best beauty products of February 2015
With another month almost over, it's time to get stuck into the products which stood out for me the most this February.

My skin has been pretty happy recently, with a solid skincare routine both morning and night that seems to be doing my skin the world of good. Whenever my skin has needed a little more TLC than the products in my everyday routine, I've been turning to the Antonia Burrell Mask Supreme 7-in-1, 50ml £57. The most expensive mask in my skincare stash but one which works wonders to keep my skin clear and happy, working to provide 7 skin benefits in 1 simple mask; it hydrates, smooths, detoxifies, repairs, clarifies, illuminates, protects and perfects. You can check out my full review in my recent 'Brand Spotlight | Antonia Burrell' post!

On those rare occasions my skin decides to go against me and there's a sign of a spot or blemish on it's way, I've been turning to my favourite for keeping spots at bay - the coveted Origins Super Spot Remover, 10ml £15.50. I usually use it at night - but if I'm going makeup free then during the day too. It works wonders to make spots and blemishes disappear with ease, and without them getting to the point where they're sore or leave a mark. You can check out my full review here

I've been adoring budget primers recently and the one I'm reaching for the most is the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer, 30ml £10.99. It's a light-weight primer with the perfect consistency that works wonders to keep oil at bay and makeup in place all day. You can check out my full review in my post 'Top Primers for Oily Skin'.

Another Max Factor product I can't get enough of at the moment is my beloved Max Factor Whipped Creme Foundation, £9.99. My foundation high-street base by far, I love the way this makes my complexion look even, healthy and with a slight glow, whilst staying put all day. I've never found a creme foundation that works with my skin as well as this one; a base I'll be repurchasing for years to come! You can check out my full review here.

February has been the month for rekindling my love for my Beauty Blender, £16. I love my base brushes, but few brushes leave my bases looking as flawless as my Beauty Blender. It's quite the cult product, and for me a must-have. 

For a subtle touch of highlight I've been smitten with the Topshop Glow Highlighter, £8. It's perfect against my Mediterranean skin tone and provides just the right amount of glow to cheekbones for a flattering highlight. You can check out my full review alongside some more Topshop beauty products in my recent post, 'Exploring Topshop Beauty'.

I always adore berry lips in winter and I've got the perfect combo down to a T. The Sephora Pleasant Plum Nano Lip Liner, $5/£3.42 is the perfect way to line my lips before applying MAC Rebel Lipstick, £15.50, the most perfect berry lipstick ever. You can check out my full review of Rebel along with the other purple MAC lipsticks in my collection here.

The Korres Plum Lip Butter, £6, is the perfect alternative for berry lips when you don't want to go all out with a liner and lipstick. A gorgeously soft lip butter with keeps lips feeling soft throughout the day, with a beautiful plum colour pay-off. Lovely for toned-down makeup days. 

I've really fallen back in love with my Sigma makeup recently, and I am just smitten with the Sigma Beauty Individual Eye Shadow, £8.95, in Notre Dame. A beautiful taupe with shimmer finish and touches of lavender, it's just insanely pretty for a wash of colour over the lids. You can check out my thoughts on Sigma makeup in my recent post, 'Sigma Beauty Makeup Favourites'. 

Last but not least, I am well and truly addicted to my Models Own HyperEyes Mascara, £5.99, which I featured in my recent 'Top Budget Mascaras' post. I just love the way it lengthens my lashes and has the perfect wand for picking up even those little pesky awkward lashes lots of mascara wands can miss. It holds a curl really well, doesn't smudge or budget throughout the day. A lovely, simple and long-lasting mascara.

    1. They are both such fab products! I think Max Factor in general is such a great high-street brand to turn to for high quality products. I can't wait to try Glow in the summer! xo

  4. I can't believe the month is nearly over already! Rebel is such a beautiful shade, and there's nothing quite like a beauty blender for a flawless base look.

    1. 2015 is definitely whizzing by, before we know it it'll be Christmas again! I adore Rebel, such a cult MAC shade and so utterly perfect as a winter shade. I'm not sure what I'd do without my Beauty Blender, it really does deserve it's hyped up cult status :) xo

  6. I've never really looked to Models Own for anything but nail polishes, but their mascara sounds really good! I also had a bit of a Topshop Beauty spree recently - two of the lipsticks, two cream blushes and the lip primer (the latter particularly intrigued me!)

    1. I didn't know Topshop had any primers, so I will have to check that out! xo

  7. Ooh, I didn't know Models Own had a mascara - definitely checking that one out. I've recently been loving the Topshop Glow Pot too. I got it last year, didn't like it and threw it in the back of a drawer and rediscovered it in January! xx

    1. I'm glad to hear you've rediscovered Glow, it's such a lovely highlight. Let me know what you think to HyperEyes if you decide to give it a try :) xo

  8. I think Max Factor have it down with foundations I really do. I'm currently loving and using the Facefinity one, which I love, stays all day and gives a lovely finish. I've also recently finished the Whipped cream one, and would purchase this again for sure, soft and creamy, easy to apply and again a great finish. I used to use another of their liquid ones called Second Skin I think it was years ago and that was gorgeous and I'm planning to try the Luminosity one next, but I've another whole bottle of Facefinity to use first!! I really do think they do a good base at a great price.
