February favourites featuring Urban Decay, Charlotte Tilbury, Sarah Chapman & more!

So it's the end of another month - I love this time of year because there's a real touch on Spring in the air - although it's still cold, the days are brighter and longer and I can start to banish the dark clothes to the back of the wardrobe! I have a variety of products to share with you this month and all have been firm favourites for the past four weeks!

The first product is Sarah Chapman Morning Facial, which I bought earlier this month from QVC as part of a bargain bundle. It is a serum oil and I apply it daily before my moisturiser. It doesn't interfere with my foundation and on no make-up days, it helps my skin to look plump and radiant. I wince at the price but it is a truly beautiful product, especially if you have dry or dull skin.

For haircare, I have been loving Sachajuan Hair Repair. This is an intensive treatment that I apply after shampooing and leave for at least 10 minutes, but more often than not, it's for at least 30mins to an hour. When I first used it, I was unsure if it would be hydrating enough on my dry and damaged hair but I actually love it - it left my hair really soft and glossy. I've had a few comments on how shiny my hair is, so that's a thumbs up for this product!

The primer I have used most this month has been Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer. Apart from the (faint) coconut scent, which I am a fan of, I absolutely love how hydrating, light and non-greasy this primer is and my foundation applies so evenly over it. It is perfect for those with normal/dehydrated or dry skin. Marc Jacobs is now easier to get hold of in the UK (and Ireland via ParcelMotel) because it is sold in Harrods.

I started using my DIOR Diorskin Nude Perfecting Hydrating Concealer again this month and have been loving it. It is absolutely perfect for the under eye area, especially if you have dry skin in that area or fine lines because it doesn't crease or settle into any lines. I only need to use a tiny amount under each eye and my dark circles are banished because it is pretty full coverage without being heavy or thick. I would highly recommend it to those with dry skin or mature skin because it doesn't settle into fine lines or highlight them.

The lipstick that I have worn most often this month is Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in the shade Between The Sheets, which is one of her latest releases. It is the perfect everyday pinky nude and although matte, is very comfortable & creamy on the lips! Love it!

Finally, my favourite of all favourites this month has been the Urban Decay/Gwen Stefani Limited Edition Blush Palette. This is an absolutely stunning palette and although it is described as a blush palette, I would say that there are three (possibly four blushes depending on your skin tone), one bronzer and a highlight (or two, again depending on your skin tone!). The blushes are buttery soft and so easy to blend and really pigmented. I will do a full review soon but I loved it so much that I bought one to give away on the blog (find the link below to enter). This is limited edition, so if you like it you'd better buy it soon or get entering!

I would love to know what products you have been loving this month? Please tell me in the comments below!
