A Few February Favourites


Chanel Rose Ecrin & Illuminating Powder

Chanel's Rose Ecrin and Illuminating powder have both been firm favourites this month. Rose Ecrin adds a a pretty hint of natural colour to cheeks, and the Illuminating powder creates a beautiful, very subtle glowy finish. I keep meaning to write a post on the Illuminating powder, but the horrible, drab and grey weather here at the moment is making swatching impossible.

NARS And God Created The Woman Palette

The NARS And God Created Woman palette is a fairly recent purchase, but I've found myself reaching for it almost everyday since getting it. There are some really lovely neutral shades included that work together perfectly to create a variety of different looks. Alhambra, Kalahari and Galapagos are the shades I've found myself using the most over the past couple of weeks, and also Coconut Grove, which works really well as a liner shade.


All of the shades are nicely pigmented and apply and blend well, and used with the included Smudge Proof eye shadow primer, they last really well throughout the day. Overall, it's fantastic little palette.

Le Metier De Beaute: Fig & Armani Eyes To Kill

I'm still slightly obsessed with purple eye shadow at the moment, so on the days I haven't worn colours from the NARS palette, I've been reaching for Le Metier De Beaute's Fig.The shade is beautifully pigmented and rich, and the formula is excellent. I've only tried a couple of colours from the brand's eye shadow range, but I'm really impressed with both. They're exceptionally smooth and apply and blend like a dream.

I'm still working my way through a few sample sized mascaras, but my favourite out the three I'm currently using is Armani's Eye's to Kill, which adds a nice amount of volume and length and holds up brilliantly throughout the day. Will definitely be purchasing a full size tube when my mini size runs out!

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick: Rose & Chanel Rouge Coco: Jersey Rose

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Rose has been a favourite in the lipstick department this month. My dry lips don't normally do well with long-lasting lip colours, but the Opaque Rouge formula is excellent. It's comfortable and feels light weight, and lasting power is pretty impressive. 

Chanel's Jersey Rose has also been a favourite this month. The peachy pink shade works surprisingly well on my fairly pigmented lips and like the Opaque Rouge formula, the Rouge Coco formula feels comfortable and non-drying. 

So those are a few of February's favourites, I can't believe it's almost March already, this month's flown by! Are there any particular products or colours that you've been favouring this month?

  1. I really need to try a LMdB e/s, Fig looks like a lovely colour.
    The Hourglass Extreme Sheen lipglosses are always something I reach for often and this month I've been favouring more natural colours - MAC's e/s in Girlie is a current favourite.

    1. LMdB shadows are really lovely, Meeta, definitely worth checking out! I'm not much of a lipgloss fan, but I've heard really good things about Hourglass lipglosses, I'm kinda tempted to give them a go.

  2. Gorgeous favorites! I have been wanting one of the hourglass opaque rouges but none of the colors appealed to me. Maybe I'll try the orange one come summer!

    1. The orange shade does look great! Kinda tempted to give that shade a go, too, but I'm not sure if I'd be brave enough to wear it. The reds on offer look lovely, too!

  3. I love when favourites end up being a full face`s worth of makeup. My tend to cluster in one area -- I`ll be obsessed with cheeks for one month, and lips the next.

    1. Ha, I do do that some months too. I'm quite obsessed with eye shadow at the moment, but I think I've stuck with the NARS palette because it contains some really lovely, wearable shades.

  5. These are very gorgeous Nat shades! :) Since I've been trying to be creative, I've kind of been all over the place with products, so I don't think I have any fast favorites this month...although I did dig out my bronzer, and have been using that daily!

    1. I'm kind of boring with my make up and tend to stick to the same products throughout the month, I could definitely do with being more creative! I've been thinking about digging out bronzer, too. I might have to do that this month.
