2011 February Favourites ♥

Photobucket
Hi everyone, this is a post dedicated to my top 10 favourite/most used makeup products of February 2011, excluding my staple/base products which are featured in this post. These are in no particular order!

1. MAC Espresso eyeshadow. Matte dark brown. I have been using this on the crease for almost all my looks this month. It makes for a fabulous, neutral crease colour.

2. MAC Vanilla eyeshadow. I have been using this to blend out Espresso on the brow bone area using a fluffy MAC or Sigma 224 brush.

3. MAC Cloudbound eyeshadow. This is a frosty white-gold colour. It was a limited edition shade from the quad from the Balloonacy collection. The most recent MAC dupe was Solar White eyeshadow; I think MAC Nylon is the closest dupe from the permanent line.

4. MAC Golden Lariat MSF. Ever since I got it, I fell in love with it. It has a contour, blush and highlight colour in one product. Only thing its missing is a mirror! Read my review and see swatches here.

5. Benefit Hoola bronzer. I believe I have found my HG bronzer. Its a matte bronze colour that's perfect for my medium yellow-toned skin.

6. Benefit Coralista blush as part of Powder Time Lover Trio. This is a peachy pink with gold shimmer. I love this blush for its brightening effect on my cheeks!

7. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick. This has been out for about 1 year now, and I can't believe I have just picked this up! Its a gorgeous reddish coral colour in my favourite MAC lipstick finish, lustre.

8. MAC Cut a Caper lipstick. This is another limited edition shade, a light peachy pink from the Tartan Tale Christmas collection.

9. MAC Oil Control lotion. This is a runny white lotion, which dries quickly on your face leaving a smooth soft matte finish. It looks and feels like perfect skin! *my boy is a big fan of this!* It provides the perfect makeup base that keeps shine at bay. I only wish that it has a version with SPF to really use daily.

10. No7 Exquisite Curl mascara. This still doesn't replace my staple Maybelline Colossal Volume but its an easy-to-apply mascara that provides my lashes length and volume! Not so sure about the curling though, but I always curl my lashes anyway. Click here to read my review!

And here are the swatches...

Well those are my 10! What were your favourite makeup products last month? ♥

  4. Golden Lariat looks great but the lack of mirror is a real packaging design fail and turn-off for me.

  8. @Tina- Haha! What a coincidence. You should definitely purchase it if its still in your area. I believe it should be gone soon.

    And no problem, I hope you'll be able to try the Oil Control Lotion! Its really nice. x
