February has gone so fast! It's also been an awesome month for my blog with heaps on new growth that I am so grateful to all of you for. Also, because I was away in January, I didn't get a change to do my monthly favourites so I have been saving up some really excellent new products to share with you.

Skinstitut Moisture Defence Ultra Dry Mosituriser $30.15
Skinstitut Moisture Defence Ultra Dry Mosituriser review
I picked this up when I last got a facial at the Laser Clinic and took it with me to Europe. It was such a lifesaver in the dry weather and negative temperatures. My skin didn't get dry or flaky at all which really shocked me and it was all thanks to this moisturiser. It is a slightly thicker and richer cream which still absorbed quickly. Basically, I love it and I have already purchased my second tube. If you have really dry and dehydrated skin you need to check it out because it is easily one of the best I have used.

Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer £4.19

We really need to get Collection in Australia but for now you can find this on eBay for a fairly reasonable price with shipping. I had heard so many good things about this so I had to pick it up when I was in the UK and I was not disappointed. It is light enough for me and has a fantastic creamy and pigmented formula that sets down well to last throughout day. I am so happy to have found a drugstore concealer I love and can actually used which is why I bought backups. Even buying it at a higher price on eBay in Australia is way cheaper than the Nars concealer I was using. 

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Love Liberty $49

I have been wearing my new Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks non-stop this month but since I already reviewed Valentine and Pillow Talk (here) I figured I would focus on Love Liberty. It is an absolutely gorgeous wine shade that looks way better than I ever would have thought on my pale skin. I'm so glad I bought this shade on a whim because I wanted something different. The Matte Revolution lipstick formula is also super comfortable, pigmented and generally perfect. It's one of the few matte lipsticks I like to wear on a daily basis. You guys need this lipstick!

Bobbi Brown Blush in 11 Nectar $46

I had heard great things about this shade so when I spotted it seriously discounted at the Estee Lauder corporate store I had to leap on it. It was the one of two blushes I took with me on my month long holiday and I love it! I have been using it more than any of my other blushes since I got it. It is the most beautiful corally pink matte shade that has the most blendable and gorgeous formula. It always looks incredible. It's my first Bobbi Brown blush and I've already bought another one!

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector $44.20

I recently reviewed this in my Valentine's Day haul from Ry (here) and I have been using it all month. It is definitely a lot more hydrating than my faithful favourite Bobbi Brown Corrector ($42). While it isn't as pigmented it is really illuminating and is absolutely perfect for everyday. I think if you have dry skin and serious dark circles like me, this one would be a huge winner.

  3. I finally looked up the price of CT lipsticks and they seem to be reasonably priced on Beautylish for Australians, similar to MAC! Makes me inclined to pick up a few but I am trying to remember to apply lipstick I already have 😂

    1. Careful. Even when you have Beautylish set to Australian delivery, all the prices are still in USD. The CT lipsticks are just under $50 AUD. They are kind of worth it though.

    1. Me too! You should definitely give it a swatch next time you are near a counter. It is definitely way prettier on the cheeks though, the swatch doesn't do it justice.

  7. Love this post! That lipstick is beautiful! I've also been loving the Becca Under Eye Corrector! I used to use it all the time, but then stopped for some unknown reason. I picked it up again recently and I don't know how I lived without it for three months!
