Five Things I’m Loving | February 2021

It’s been months since I’ve done one of these! Despite being a magpie for new products I am also a creature of habit and it takes me a while to start using things consistently enough to form an opinion on. But, today I’ve got five firm favourites!

The NARS Soft Matte Concealer in Light 2 Vanilla has actually featured before in my Best Beauty Discoveries of 2020 post but I just need to mention it again as it’s my new go to! My favourite concealer, the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer was discontinued and I picked up this and the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer around the same time but I’ve barely touched the MAC as I haven’t found it as good as the NARS! This is matte but not drying and it has great coverage! I don’t experience any flaking even on my drier than normal skin at the minute and the colour match is perfect for me! I was using a concealer buffing brush when I first got it but have switched to my finger tip and prefer this method of application! I think when I use a bit more I will have to go back to the brush to get everything out of the pot but it’s a small price to pay!


The Lanolips 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm also featured quite recently in this brand overview post and it’s been on my lips non-stop since then so deserves another mention! It’s a pet peeve of mine to wake up in the night and my lip balm to have worn off but with this there is no chance of that. Although it has lots of uses - dry patches, cuticles, nasal passages, lips, you name it, I use this mainly for my lips and sometimes I also rub a tiny bit inside my nostrils as they are so dry and prone to nosebleeds at the minute as I’m on accutane and it works a treat! It is so thick and hydrating and stays put all night long ensuring I don’t wake up with uncomfortable dry skin on my lips! 

 

Next up, the Scientia Beauty Dusk Elixir* has filled the face oil void I’ve had in my life since I finished my beloved Trilogy Rosehip Oil last year. It contains a blend of 23 oils including Rosehip, Moringa and Bakuchiol and feels super rich and hydrating. Overnight, this works to regenerate and repair skin and tackle early signs of aging. I wake up to soft, plump, supple skin every time! The scent makes me feel like I am getting a facial and is so therapeutic and calming, perfect for before bed! The products are also cruelty free and this bottle is huge at 50ml and its £32. I have a brand review coming soon with the other products I was sent but this one has really stood out to me so needed a mention!

Now, for another couple of makeup bits that haven’t left my face over the last few months – the NARS blush in Behave being one! I am so glad I picked this up before Christmas when Cult beauty had 20% off. It’s a beautiful, warm, pink, matte blush that is buildable and lasts all day for me. It’s one I don’t need to think about and even though its matte it’s not flat and it adds a little somethin’ somethin’ to my cheeks! This is my first full size NARS blush but I already knew I loved the formula as I have four minis in Dolce Vita, Impassioned, Deep Throat and Orgasm (from most to least liked).

 

The Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips in Pillowtalk popped up in my recent Mask Proof Tinted Lipbalms post and has been getting more love than usual now I am back in the office with my mask on a lot more. This is the most long lasting lip balm I own meaning even through mask on/off, tea drinking etc I still have some colour on my lips and most importantly hydration! It’s a pricey option at £25 but once I know I will repurchase when I run out because it works so well for me!

  6. I really want to expand my NARS blush collection since I only have one mini which I like (Orgasm) but I think I would like other shades better. This one looks like something I would love! Also, that Charlotte Tilbury lip balm looks so good I want it!
