February 2011 favourites!

These favourite posts are a work in progress for me.  So they may appear differently from month to month until I find a format that I like.  Anyway, here are the things I've been using more than others this month! 

Foundation: Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse with MAC MSF natural to set - still loving this combination, especially as my skin is a bit more dry with all this freezing cold weather

Concealer: Lancome Effacernes Concealer-got this with my Lancome gift with purchase, review pending

Eye primer: MAC's Painterly paint pot-love, this is a must have product

Highlight: Tarte Smooth Operator illuminating serum-been putting this on before my foundation, beautiful results


Eyes: Nars Ashes to Ashes; Benefit's Creaseless Shadow in Skinny Jeans - recent purchases I've been testing, reviews pending on both

Cheeks: Maybelline NY Expert Wear blush in Plushed Plum - not sure if this was being discontinued because I got this on a clearance sale last fall, gorgeous deep plum color that I use as both a blush and contour; Hoola by Benefit - I forgot how much I love this bronzer, I've been scraping the last bits of it from the bottom of the pan, I haven't been using this on my cheeks as much but a few sweeps across my forehead to just to warm up my face a bit

Lips: Revlon Soft Nude; Balmshell mini gloss in Shopaholic; Aquaphor - not a lot of color I know but Soft Nude looks great with a bit of Shopaholic over top and Aquaphor is just great at keeping my lips nice & soft


Just a quick hair product suggestion.  I use whatever I can to keep my hair feeling moisturized in this dry, cold weather.  This is a great little leave in conditioner that smells amazing to boot.  Even better, you can usually find it for under $4 at the drugstore.

So what about you, what are your favourites this month?


  1. THese look great .. I've been wanting to try a nude lipstick for awhile now, as I actually don't own a single one! Maybe I"ll try that Revlon one.
