February Favourites

It's that time again when i tell you my loves of the month.  I know everyone says this and it's pretty much said every month, but where did the month go??  So here they are...sorry for the pants photo.

..1... Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Glisten 
Oh my god, this is so lovely.  It gives a lovely beautiful glow on the cheeks.  It makes you look fresh faced.  It looks shimmery in the close up picture, but it is so fine and not too noticeable. Love it!  I heard of this brand from the lovely Amarixe aka Allison who I follow on YT and Blogger.  If you don't know who she is I suggest you check her out :- ) On the blog and YT channel she has spoken about Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes.  So when I was in Ulta and saw the Tarte stand I instantly went looking for the blushes.  Glisten caught my eye, the colour is so beautiful.  I use it on the apples of my cheeks and it gives you an fantastic glow.  It just makes you look healthy.

..2... Macadamia Healing Oil Spray
All I can say about this is O.M.G.!!!!  My hair just looks amazing when I use this.  I'm going to use this now till I die I think.  Spray in damp clean hair, style, spray again. You're done.  It soften, protects, gives manageability, moisturises, shine....my hairs life saver.  A little expensive but soooooo worth it.  Give it ago.

..3... NYX Trio Eyeshadow TS15 -Aloha/Mink Brown/Deep Bronze 
I'm a sucker for all this neutral and when I saw this in Ulta in the US, it was instantly a hit.  The colours are all me colours.  Perfect for work as very compact.  Colours are very pigmented. I wish we had NYX in the UK :-(

..4... Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara 
I had a sample of this for ages loved it, so purchased a full size one.  I only use this on my bottom lashes as normal mascaras smudge on me.  This one do not move an inch, stays on all day.  I love this

..5... Kiehls Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
This is one of my SMS (shopping my stash) items.  I'd used it tonnes, left it then found it again.  Lovely creamy consistency which really moisturises the eye cream.  Only downside, it's an expensive little pot.  Otherwise it's great.

..6... Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast 
Another US purchase which I love it's probably the cheapest item in my favourites.  Tastes so yummy you just want to lick your lips all the time.  Contains SPF15 and makes your lips super soft.

..7... Victoria Secrets Luminous Mineral Blush in Surrender 
This two tone mineral blush with baby and hot pink gives an amazing natural glow to the cheeks, a bit like the Tarte.  Makes you look amazingly fresh faced, but I think this is more on the highlighting side than a blush side.  It is definitely illuminating.

..8... Sephora by OPI in Wild About Shimmer
I almost didn't get this polish.  I only purchased it when I noticed the sales assistant in the Sephora I was at had a beautiful manicure.  We were having a bit of a chat and I was like 'oooooo i like your polish' to which she responded and said 'yea we sell that here'.  She ran over and picked out the colours for me.  It is so beautiful.  Completely worthy of its own NPOTW post, which will come soon.  A sheer shimmery champagne with micro/small gold shimmer glitter.  Truly amazing.

..9... Olay Total Effects 7 in One Touch of Sunshine Light Sunkissed Glow 
Well Olay could of shortened the name, but I suppose they can get away with it.  This is one of those products I  bought and then stopped using as I forgot about it.  Happy i found it again as I'm loving this.  This product gives you a sun kissed glow as it has self-tanner in it but also has 7...yes 7 healthy skin benefits from pore minimisation, evening, moisturising , toning, brightening...need I go on???  I think this is definitely looking at.  It even has SPF 15, a true wonder product!
