February Favourites + Alternative Follow Links

Hi lovelies,

I can't believe how quickly February has gone, it seems like yesterday we were welcoming 2012. Anyways onto my favourites for this month, I know the one product was mentioned in my last post but it has also made my favourites for this month (will keep it brief).

Here we go:

1. Sudocrem

My beloved little pot of Sudocrem, I love using this product when my skin is bad it really helps to reduce the redness of spots and I find they go quicker when using this product. 

My mom will sometimes mock me for my white patches but I don't mind it does help my skin when it's bad. Before spots would sometimes take up to a week to disappear now it takes around 3 days.

2. Accessorize blush - Quiver

A while back this made my top 5 blushers, and I must admit I had forgotten about this until this month, and without fail I've been using it the majority of this month to wear while at uni.

I love this product and to be honest was quite a cheap product but a lovely light shade of pink, and would consider re-purchasing this once it's finished.

3. Maybelline Nude Airfoam - Ivory

This has become my most used foundation since getting it, the idea behind it was a bit confusing for me before I got my hands on it. However I do love it now, I find it blends really well and considering the lightness of the product it does give really good coverage - even when I'm having a bad skin day.

However I have seen on some blogs people have got 'light' colours but have when applied been very dark and orange so I would say where possible try and test it in the shop.

4. ELF Mineral Lipstick - Party Pink

Lipsticks are one of those I try and use a different one everyday, however I've found myself this month keep going back to this lipstick. I do like it, I find it gives out a lovely natural colour - perfect for everyday use.

Considering the price of this price it does last well, and gives great payoff. Probably one of my favourite ELF lipsticks from the range.

5. China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat

This product is a godsend for me, I find when applying nail polish I always end up denting it while it's drying so I figured I'd get myself a quick drying topcoat. This works really well on different makes of polish which is great.

I got this product from the states so it was fairly cheap but it can be purchased over here. I will get a new one of these when finished as I love it, and find within a couple of mins (if that) my nails are bone dry.

6. OPI Nail Envy

If you're a fan of OPI you will have heard of this product, when I first heard about it I was a little skeptical - especially because of the hefty price tag attached. However QVC were selling this in a double pack with the matte Nail Envy for £18 so I thought I'd try it out.

I find this works really well on my nails, it's helped them grow quicker that it normally would and when my nails become long they are definitely a lot stronger. Something I find when my nails get long they tend to become weak and flaky - however this product helps on both of these.

What else is great is that this can be used as a base coat and top coat either on painted nails or unpainted. 

Hope you enjoyed my February favourites, what are yours for this month?

Lastly with the announcement of GFC closing (which will also affect blogspot users) I figured I'd link you to other platforms to find my blog:
