February Favourites

February Favourites 2After a long and dreary January, it’s so wonderful to welcome February and all things pretty in pink! Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and to celebrate I’ve rounded up a few of my favourite things I’m loving at the moment, all in shades of pink, of course!February favouritesFebruary Favourites 1February Favourites 5

Lipsticks I Love
I always have a rotation of lipsticks in my beauty routine. Right now, I’m loving the neutral and easy to apply Lipstick Queen in The Whole Truth. Dior’s Double Rouge in Miss Crush for a pop of colour and for a classic pink, Essence’s Poppy Pink. I’m also a huge fan of Dior’s Lip Sugar Scrub. It’s perfect for gently exfoliating winter lips with a sugary sweet taste.

About Face
Your skin is easily dried out in the winter, which can make applying foundation a challenge. Korres Primer has been an ideal solution for a smoother complexion. It’s a water-based primer that also minimizes the appearance of pores and redness. It also comes in this really pretty tube which is perfect to throw in your purse on the go.

I’m a big fan of Dior’s beauty products, and I’ve recently discovered their Diorific Matte Fluid Velvet Lip & Cheek Colour. It gives you a hint of rosiness and blends in well on fair skin. It also doubles as a lip colour, which I’m really excited to wear this Spring.
February Favourites 1Pretty Polishes
I’ve been wearing a lot of nude nail polishes lately, mainly because it’s easy to maintain. For February though, I’m moving towards more dusty pinks, magentas and classic reds. For neutral shades, I’m loving CND’s Cashmere Wrap and Sally Hansen’s Colour Therapy and for colour, and I’m loving Essie’s winter collection for colours – Be Cherry and New Year New Hue.February Favourites 21Phone Case
Switching up your phone case is not only fun, but also necessary! We take our phones everywhere and the case is going to get dirty (and germy!) I found a super cute collection of Kate Spade cases at Winners for only $20 each, so I bought two! I’m enjoying changing up my phone case depending on my mood, or outfit.

Rose Gold Glasses
New Year, New Glasses! The team at Clearly obviously knows me well, because this pretty rose gold pair suit me perfectly!  I’ve received so many compliments, and it makes me so happy to respond, ‘They’re from Clearly’s Kam Dhillon line, and they’re very affordable!

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s day than with a few sweet treats? These rose flavoured macarons were the perfect addition to this February Favourites shoot, and a delicious treat for afterwards. TWG has a lovely tea salon at the Georgia Street location, and is serving a beautiful Valentine’s Day themed menu until February 14th. Be sure to check out my Afternoon Tea Etiquette feature for some tips about attending this decadent afternoon treat.

  • That Korres primer sounds since! Do you know if it’s silicone free? I’m loving all the pink!

    Effortlessly Sophisticated

    • Thanks Jennifer. Yes! It’s 95% natural content, and dermatologically tested. It also has a slightly nude under tone, so you don’t have to wear to much makeup with it. Worth testing out next time you’re at the drugstore.
      Happy February!

  • I could use a lip scrub. These all sound great!
