February Favourites

Last months favourites were a week early which sort of makes up for the lateness of this one! I haven't got too many products this month as I stuck to most of the same favourites as last month because when I love something I stay pretty faithful.

Mac 217 Blending Brush:
I've had this brush for about 5 months and I absolutely love it. The soft tapered end makes blending so fast and easy. This brush is yet to shed which means it will hopefully last for ages. The only thing I don't like is that the writing is rubbing off the side and I wouldn't expect that from an expensive brush especially because it hasn't happened on cheaper ones. Non the less I really want to try more Mac brushes because the quality is top notch.

Pixi Brow Brush:
I picked this up on a trip to London and it's the first I have tried from Pixi. I really like the cute mint green handle, it's one of my favourite colours. The dual end makes it so handy and the angled side is small and firm enough to get neat brows.

Nars Deep Throat Blush:
When it comes to blush I usually change it up everyday so the fact I have worn this almost every single day since I got it three weeks ago shows just how much I love it. It's by far my favourite blush. Its mainly pink with a hint of coral and gold glitter so it gives the prettiest pink flush to the cheeks. It instantly brightens up my face and its just plain gorgeous.

Flawless By Nadia Mineral Blush in Dusk*:
I have already raved about  this but I loved it so much I had to include it. It's very pigmented and soft and the colour is stunning. I haven't got as much wear out of this as the Nars blush because it is mineral so it is not morning friendly. For a full review and a swatch click here.

Mac Shy Girl:
I featured this in a recent haul post and I have loved wearing it since I got it. It's the perfect peachy nude so its gotten a lot of wear during the day. I actually enjoy reapplying this because the texture is so creamy and luxurious.

Have you tried any of these products? What has been your favourites?

  1. I agree. Adore the 217 but it makes me sad that the writing is already rubbing off and I've had it for less than a year :(

  2. I absolutely love both the MAC 217 and Nars' Deep Throat, I just added a touch of clear polish over the numbers on my MAC brushes and they stay put! :)

  10. Hi! Following you on GFC :)

    I've written about the NARS Orgasm blush here: http://samantha--ashley.blogspot.sg/2013/03/oh-what-orgasm.html

    but what do you think it fares against deep throat though? Just wondering if I should get that too!

    1. Yay thank you! I think they are completely different colours so you can justify getting deep throat too x
