February 2014 Beauty Favourites.

February always throws me because it's such a short month. I've had a bit of a product declutter and finally used some things up that I've had for a little while, which has been nice. In the process I've rediscovered a few old favourites and there are a couple of new products that have made their way into my favourites too.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (£9.99)
This is my last bottle of this in the old packaging. For some reason I managed to accumulate 3 bottles at once a really long time ago, I think they were on offer at some point or I just went crazy and bought multiples because I really liked it. Either way, I love this foundation! I stopped using it for a long time because I wanted to try other things, but nothing has really overtaken my love for it. Is the formula in the new packaging pretty much the same? I hope it is!
Lily Lolo Mineral Blush in Ooh La La* (£7.99)
This month I've managed to shoe-horn talking about how wonderful I think this blush is into multiple posts already, so I won't waffle on too much here. If you like mineral make up and you're looking for the perfect pink blush, this is definitely one to try.
Canmake Cheek & Cheek blush
This came into my life courtesy of the beautiful Rachel and it's love. The two shades swirled together give the prettiest peachy pink flush that I know will become a firm favourite this spring. There's something very warming about the colour, it instantly makes me look and feel a lot more awake and glowy. It's lovely.
Seventeen Blow Out Mascara (£6.29)
I'm not the biggest fan of the packaging, but it's undoubtedly very easy to find in my make up bag each morning so it wins points for that. The wand is pretty small so it's easy to coat both those tiny little lashes and bottom lashes really easily. It's not the most volumising or lengthening I've ever tried, but it's pretty good and I like it enough for this to be my second tube.

Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 03 (£13.60)
As long as Clarins keep making these, I'll keep buying them. I own shades 01, 02 & 03 and I'm on my second tube of each. Yep. I love them a lot. At the moment I'm going through a real nude lip phase so this is the one I'm reaching for all the time. They're glossy but not sticky, really comfortable to wear and they smell like caramel. What's not to love?!

Odylique Balancing Citrus Super Tonic* (£15)
I do love a good face spritz and this is one of the nicest ones I've tried in a long time. I haven't used it for long enough to do an in depth review, but my skin feels more balanced and hydrated since incorporating it into my skincare routine. I'm interested to see if I keep seeing results, I hope so because I think this will be especially refreshing when the weather warms up a little!

Montagne Jeunesse Deep Cleanse Blemish Mud Mask (£1)
I love these little sachets, they're so affordable that it's totally okay to buy a couple of different ones to stash away for those evenings when you really want to relax and treat yourself. My current favourite from the range is this one. It leaves my skin feeling incredibly clean like it's has a good deep cleanse but it's also not drying at all. Perfect for when my skin is feeling a little oily and I have a few stubborn blemishes.

What were some of your favourite products during February?
