February Favourites!

Hello everyone! 
As some of you may already know through my Instagram , I am currently in the process of transitioning into cruelty-free makeup products! It's been tough to do as there are so many brands that I love, but I disagree with the way some products are produced. However, I do still have a lot of products from companies who aren't cruelty free which I have decided to finish using before I completely make that transition. Keep in mind that this is just my opinion and I am in no way bashing anyone who chooses not to make this choice with me.  Now, on to the point of this post! It's already March and almost Spring here in Holland.  Over the course of this month I've been using the products listed below and thought I'd share them with all of you. Let me know what your February Favourites consist of! 

1. Stila Baked Trio Eyeshadow in 'Bronze Glow'
I love how pigmented this product is. It's incredibly long lasting and it consists of three gorgeous shimmery colours which are great for multiple uses such as highlighting the inner corner, all over lid colour and even as a bronzer! I wrote a full review on this product which you can read here
2. Catrice Ultimate Stay lipliner in ''040 Love The Way You Plum'
I am a huge fan of Catrice lipliners. They stay all day, don't smudge and are incredibly pigmented. I currently own three of their Ultimate Stay lipliners but I'm definitely going to stock up on these. I highly recommend them if you're looking for lipliners but don't want to spend a ton of money, as these are very inexpensive and such great quality!

3. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
This mascara came in the Naked On The Run Palette. I am obsessed with it for various reasons; aside from making my lashes appear darker and more voluminous, it doesn't clump and actually separates the lashes therefore making them look a lot longer. Urban Decay products are quite pricey, but if you're looking for a great mascara (along with a blush, highlighter, eyeliner, bronzer and six eyeshadows) the Naked On The Run palette is a must-have and is great for traveling!

4. YSL Perfume in 'Baby Doll'
I've been using this religiously throughout February. It's incredibly sweet but I like it as it's a perfect feminine, day time fragrance - very light too, which is perfect for spring. 

5. Victoria's Secret Body Moisturizer in 'Love Spell'
You all know how much I love the Victoria's Secret body mists and lotions. Love Spell has always been one of my favourite scents, so of course I've been loving the Love Spell Body Lotion. It's incredibly hydrating and makes my skin feel super soft after I've applied it. Although the scent is very light, there is no need to apply a perfume after using this product. I'd recommend using the Love Spell body wash along with the moisturizer, for extra staying power.

6. Maybelline Blushed Nudes Palette
I'm not usually a fan of colour palettes - much less palettes that have loads of pink, purple and shimmery shades. That changed when I started using this palette - it's perfect for the upcoming Spring and great for easy day looks or dramatic night looks. It's girly, flirty and very pigmented. It's been my go-to eyeshadow palette throughout this month and probably will be making my March favourites too!

7. Rimmel London Rita Ora Nail Polish in 'Go Wild-erness'
During Winter I always tend to wear dark clothing. Wearing a pop of colour is a must for me, and that pop of colour is usually on my lips or nails. The Rimmel x Rita Ora nail polish is a gorgeous light pastel purple colour. It's long lasting, easy to apply and dries very quickly. In my opinion, it's a very happy colour, as well as a bold one. A great pick-me up during those gloomy Winter days.
