Monthly Favourites: February


Eeeeek we've finally entered March, basically the best month ever (it's my birthday month obvs). In February I kind of ditched all memories and makeup associated to Winter and made my way into Spring (a little bit early, I know).

Of course we had to start with the foundation that I have literally non-stopped been raving about on my Instagram, Twitter and here on the blog. I've been obsessed with the L'Oreal True Match Foundation since I picked it up earlier this month and I do think it has completely replaced my Rimmel Match Perfection. I did an entire post on the foundation on my blog here but the ultimate rundown is, if you're looking for a drugstore, glowy foundation perfect for dry skin with medium coverage, you NEED to try this - the new formula is 100x better than the old! 

Of course my Nars Duo in 'Alhambra' has swiftly made it's way back into my favourites. I've started becoming obsessed with the left shimmery pink/champagne shade when I've been trying to achieve the ultimate rose gold eyeshadow. The quality of the shadows are beautiful with great pigmentation and application. 

For lips I've had two favourites this month. Another product that will be no surprise to you is the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution 'Pillowtalk' lipstick. You must all be sick to death of this lipstick by now but I am definitely not! I literally wore this for around 2 weeks straight in February and it was getting a little bit obsessive. Of course a lipstick like this needed it's own post entirely so I did do a full review here and I just have to say, anyone who has been wanting to try something from Charlotte Tilbury, this is the one everyday lipstick that you need in your collection.

Lastly is of course another product I did a full review about here, the Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit 'Go To'. I originally was a little bit skeptical when it came to this lip kit, we've all seen the many drugstore brands who have been jumping on the bandwagon, but this formula really impressed me. I originally didn't have a Kylie Lip Kit to compare it to, but now that I do (full comparative post to come up soon) I have to say, this definitely is a close dupe. These have been in and out of stock for ages, my local Superdrug barely has been restocking just because they are that popular, and for a good reason. I wish they weren't limited edition and I definitely wish they came out with more shades

Let me know in the comments below what you've been loving this month and if it includes any of the above!
