February Favourites

March 11, 2014

Seriously, where does time go?! It's almost mid March and I've only just made it round to combining my most loved products of February. At this rate I should start getting ready for Christmas now!

After squeezing out the last dollop of my Phyto Clarifying Detox Shampoo, I decided to give Bb's clarifying offering a go. This stuff is highly raved about in the beauty world and I can really see why. It washes away any build up of oil and chemicals that have accumulated throughout the week (yuk!) whilst leaving hair feeling soft and nourished. It's perfect for a Sunday afternoon detox - or any day really, I just can't help but use it on a Sunday because of its name...

February was the month the new Hourglass Blushes launched, and boy are they beauts. I have the shade Luminous Flush, a gorgeous pink toned coral with golden veining that is pigmented enough to inject a healthy rosy glow without looking too powdery or shimmery. Like most Hourglass products, the packaging is also divine. I'm not sure if I can resist adding another shade to my collection!

I'm really not much of a lip gloss girl. I just can't be doing with the whole sticky mess and 'hair stuck to your lips' thing. But upon hearing nothing but good things about this Maybelline gloss, I decided to give it a whirl (It was also 3 for 2 at Boots, the perfect enabler!) Let me start by saying that this is one of the best, non-sticky glosses I've ever used. Other than the slightly strange scent, I can't fault it. The shade Cashmere Rose, a nude pink, is also gorgeous and looks great worn both alone and over lipstick. If I thought I would use them I would run out and buy several more colours, but to be honest, one is probably enough for now!

I've fallen in love with white nail polish. Naturally, I have the Essie formula (obsessed much?!) but there are cheaper alternatives if you're still a bit unsure! I know some liken it to tippex, but I just love how clean and crisp it looks on the nails. This is definitely going to be one of my spring and summer staples. 

What have you been loving lately?

  1. I think as long as you have a top coat on a white polish so it's nice and shiny, and that it's painted well it can look really classy and chic! I've been hearing sooo much about those glosses, I would love to get them but sadly we have a different colour sensational gloss here in Australia (the same as in the US) which I don't think is the same formulation :(

  2. I have the same tray. :) I would love to get some white essie polish, it is my favorite nail polish brand, along with OPI. I am really hoping they make a pastel collection soon!

  5. I need one of the Hourglass blushes in my life, they look all so beautiful. The Maybelline lipgloss is calling my name, even though I'm not a huge lipgloss fan as well, but it looks and sounds so nice!
