Top Five Favourites Of The Month – February 2013

My 5 All Time Favourites - 02-2013

Hello everyone, here comes another month of favourites. This month’s top five products were quite a task to pick because I have been using and enjoying so many lately. Have been away most of this month and several of these items have been in my makeup bag throughout.

First up, I have the amazing NARS Happening Eye & Cheek Palette. It comes in a convenient, slim compact which is travel friendly. Eye colours in this palette can bring me from day to night, from natural neutral to sultry smoky. I wish the blush is something else other than Orgasm but it works wonderfully on me, so I ain’t complaining.

The prize for getting this palette is – I finally own a piece of Laguna, the most raved about NARS bronzing powder.

Have been in a hot pink nail polish craze recently and the Lancôme Rose Macaron Vernis In Love* is my pick. I love everything about it. The texture is smooth, colour is brilliant and its last power is good.

I hardly talk about mascaras because I always use it under my false eyelashes thus I won’t be able to fully justify if the formula is volumizing/lengthening or if the curl stays. But I would love to give this YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Waterproof Mascara* a shout out.

Because it’s waterproof, I experienced no smudging throughout the day. The wand is narrow enough to give my bottom lashes a fix – I forgot my trusty Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara and am so glad this came along in my bag. The formula is a little more difficult to remove with cleansing water, I use cleansing oil to do the job.

For the past month, I have been using lots of half false eyelashes, just for the ends of my lashes. I find this mascara holds the curl very well and has brilliant staying power – for over 8 hours on a hot humid day. Am impressed.

Tom Ford Lip Color in 07 Pink Dusk – a stunning colour for soft smoky eyes and it compliments The Happening palette a lot. Thoughts and look coming right up.

I brought along a sample of this REN Morrocan Rose Otto Body Wash during one of my recent travels, I am in love with the scent. I picked up the full size a week ago and I can’t wait to enjoy it every night. The scent doesn’t quite lingers but the entire bath room is filled with a mild blend of rose after a hot shower, nothing but love.

What are your favourites this month? Share with me below.

Thank you for looking.

  1. I like the look of the NARS palette but I also wish the blush is something esle! So I didn’t get it in the end. This month, I am loving NARS light reflecting powder and Shu Uemura Tokyo lights (thanks to your gorgeous photos). :)

  2. I too have the YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara but not in the waterproof version. It is AMAZING! All I need is just 1 coat of mascara to make my lashes fuller whereas other mascaras will require at least 2-3 coats just to get the same effect. It is truly smudge proof too, and very very very easily washed off with warm water.

    However the only peeve I have with it is that their burgundy (which is the color I got) looks like purple :( And the color does not show up on my lashes……. But other than that it is really fantastic and definitely a recommend!

    Ok no wait there’s another thing.. It is very very wet….. A lot wetter than other mascaras. Have to be extra careful with application or it will end up all over your eyes. Was your waterproof version wet too?
