February Favourites with Pixi, Becca, Nars and more

It's monthly favourites time! February has quickly come and gone, and beauty wise my favourites have been a no-brainer. I've discovered (or rediscovered) a few absolute gems this month, let's see them together!

Nars Make Up For Ever Burberry Pixi Ren Becca Spring Glow Tonic Pale Barley Narsissist

REN Clearcalm 3 Clarifying Clay Cleanser
Targeted towards blemish prone skin, it contains French Kaolin Clay alongside other naturally derived ingredients to prevent spots, smooth pores and control excess oil. It has a lovely creamy consistency that is not drying on the skin and I find it really calming: my skin has been rather spot prone due to hormonal reasons lately, and this is the cleanser I've been turning to every time my skin has been looking a little bit angry. I love it!

Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner
With the exception of a few annoying spots (that are still behaving quite nicely, if I have to be honest!) my skin has been looking amazing lately, smooth and radiant, and I'm pretty sure this is the product I have to thank for. It contains the star ingredient Glycolic Acid to gently exfoliate, Aloe to soothe and Witch Hazel to tone the skin among others, and I like to use it at least once a day on clean skin on a cotton pad. A new must have!

Becca Backlight Priming Filter
This illuminating primer is my new obsession: I've been wearing it almost non stop and I'm so glad I got it! It gives to the skin the most lovely glow, but without being over the top or leaning too pink or golden like other ones I've tried. It looks perfect underneath the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint, as it gives that layer of moisture and luminosity that it might need, and they've been my favourite everyday base duo.

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint
Fully reviewed in this post, it's been my favourite everyday base this past month. Matte but not flat nor drying, it gives a good medium coverage that lasts all day and feels lightweight. The huge size makes it amazing value for money and the tube packaging it's simple and practical. It's love!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation
The days I haven't been wearing the Nars base, it's been this. The amazing shade range and invisible texture has always made the HD formula from MUFE a winner, but this innovative Ultra version is even more amazing. Virtually invisible on the skin, it gives impressive coverage and it's that little bit less mat than the Nars base without compromising the lasting power. A must have!

NARS Impassioned Blush
I have a thing for Spring pinks blushes (last year I was obsessed with this work of art from Chanel), and this year's love is the latest Nars launch, Impassioned. Described by Nars as Pink Orchid, is a light pink mat shade that gives to the cheeks a lovely dusky pink glow that's really flattering. The formula is spot on as usual, and with the Nars Yachiyo brush it applies like a dream and last all day. Nars, you've done it again!

Burberry Eyeshadow in Pale Barley
You probably know my love for this already, as I spoke about it in my last post, but this eyeshadow has barely left my lids this month. The shade is incredible and the formula is amazing: I've been loving wearing all over the lid on its own for a polished and natural look, and I'm still struggling to use anything else. Definitely something worth investing on!
