5 February Favorites

I've decided to try to make posts of 5 of my favorite beauty products each month.

1. Curel Extreme Care Intensive 24-hour Moisturizer - I keep a tube of this with me in my purse and use it on my hands often. I have a big bottle at home for my entire body. This stuff is a life saver in these dry winter months to help keep moisturized!

2. MAC Flowerosophy lustreglass - This came out a few years ago with the Culturebloom collection I believe. This is a rediscovered favorite that I've been using like crazy all month. I love light pink colours like this one.

3. Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express mascara - I always seem to have a few mascaras in rotation at all times, but I find I've been reaching for this one most often lately. It's a great volumizing formula that doesn't clump on me.

4. MAC Azalea Blossom Blush Ombre - I have been in love with this since I first picked it up at the Spring Colour Forecast unveiling event. The way it goes from pink to purple is so pretty, not to mention how smooth the formula of this is. It's quickly become one of my staple cheek products.

5. MAC Nanogold eye shadow - I am so glad that I was given this accidentally when I went to purchase my Spring Colour Forecast haul, I wasn't planning on picking it up myself. I hate returning things though and decided to give it a try. So happy I did! It's become one of my favorite lid colours, and it also makes a great highlight.

Have you tried any of these products? What are some of your favorites this month?


  1. Oh, there's nothing like redsicovered favorites! I actually haven't tried any of the products, but since you recommend the mascara (and I'm going to need to purchase a new one this month), I might give it a try. I'm always looking for something that'll give my lashes voluem. :) As for my 5 favorites, you know what they are, haha. Great post!

  2. I've tried the mascara and really like it. But I like to try different mascaras so I haven't repurchased it. You need to try the Aveeno hand lotion. You will really like it.

    If I had to pick 5 faves for February, they would be:
    Nars Sheer Glow in Barcelona - I think it's become my HG foundation
    MAC's Studio Fix Lash - separates & lengthens my lashes
    Yes to Carrots Body Butter - I don't like heavy lotions but it's been cold in SF and my skin has been drier than usual. It just sinks into my skin & leaves it feeling so soft.
    Miss Dior Cherie & Carolina Herrara's 212 - I have about 10 perfumes and found that I reached for these two the most in February.

  3. @Mellie - I know, I really need to look in my own stash more often before buying so much new stuff. Way easier said than done of course, MAC is always tempting me with new limited edition collections! :)

    @marisol - I really want to try NARS Sheer Glow, and I have yet to try any MAC mascaras. It's good to know that one works well for you, I'll keep it in mind. I've heard good things about Yes to Carrots line too, maybe I should try some out! Thanks for the list! :)

  4. I love the mascara!! and for body lotion the Eucerin calming one I didn't get that blush but ripe peach rules :D
