February Beauty Favourites

Another month is over and like last month in February I have been trying to use up products that are nearly empty to clear space. In doing this I have used up 4 mascaras this month! I haven't actually bought many new beauty products because of this but these are some of my favourie products I've been using this month.
At the start of the month my skin was breaking out pretty bad so I really focused on perfecting my skin care routine to help this. I think the products i'm using at the moment are really helping so I will do a Skincare Routine post soon.
Now I've been using the Clarisonic since the middle of January now and I really do think it's help my skin a lot. Mainly when I am breaking out I know that this is getting my skin really clean. I know not everyone can afford this but I would still recomend it. 

I heard good things about this brand so this month I tried two of their products. The Efaclar K is meant to help troubled skin and redness. I use this in the morning under my make-up and I think it definitely helps with reducing oil throughout the day as well as reducing the redness on my face. This stuff is definitely worth the money!

I got this cheap on a trip to York this month at the Designer Outlet. I think it really helps reduce the size of blemishes and get rid of them faster. I use this at night and apply it all over my face on a cotton pad, it can be drying but that doesn't bother me since I have oily skin.
This brushes became available in Boots this month so I had to get some after hearing such great reviews. I use the stippling brush every morning to apply either foundation or to blend BB Cream and it gives such a flawless finish and makes the products last longer. I would really recomend it. I use the Buffing Brush for powder or bronzer and again it gives such a great finish. I love all the Real Techniques Brushes I've tried so far and will be getting some more soon.

I've already done a review on this so won't say too much but this is a great BB Cream and gives such a natural but still flawless finish. It also lasts very well even though I have oily skin.

I've been using this under my eyes all month and I love it! What I really like is that it gets rid of the blue tones I have so well which a lot of concealers don't do. I would definitely recomend it if you can afford the heafty price tag.

I still need to do a review on this because it is such a good product. It reminds my a lot of the NYX Jumbo Pencils but waterproof! The cream colour can be used as a primer and the brown as a liner/shadow and it won't budge all day! Great if you are looking for long wearing make-up.

I got this whilst there is a 2 for £10 offer on in Boots on Revlon lip and nail products. This is a lovely pink shade that will be perfect for spring/summer. It lasts well and isn't trying at all. It's a great everyday shade.

I've been loving this for a while now, this month I've been using it on nights out because it lasts so long so you don't have to worry about topping it up all the time. It also doesn't transfer whilst you drink or eat which is good. I just wish they had more shades to choose from.
Top Revlon 'Pink In The Afternoon' , Bottom Collection 2000 'Cotton Candy'
This is a great affordable blush. It is very pigmented and lasts for a long time on the cheeks. 'Rosey Glow' is a great buildable colour and isn't too harsh for everyday. It is a great if you're looking for a good blush on a budget.

I love this stuff and I think this might be my 4th bottle! It goes really well with lots of perfumes and is not overpowering so I wear it alot during the day. I also love the Strawberry one which I can't wait to start using again in Summer!

So thats my beauty favourites for this month, I hope you liked it. What were some of your favourites this month?
