February has been such a cold and snowy month in Norway that I’m really looking forward to spring and sunshine!
I’ll have to start my monthly favourites with a lip balm because it has been a real saviour for my lips in the past few weeks. Kaufmanns cream is a relatively thick multi-purpose baby cream that works wonders applied on my lips. Thanks to this little tube, there’s no sign of the cracked and bleeding lips caused by the fierce wind in Norway.
Another skincare item that I’ve been loving is the Dermalogica Clear Start Overnight Treatment. It reduces the redness and the size of spots without drying out my skin and after a couple of applications, the blemishes are significantly diminished.
Dior has always been an impressive brand for me but in the past few months, their products really won my heart. That’s why I have two Dior items in my February favourites. Dior Addict Lip Glow in 005 Lilac (review here) has been on my lips for almost two months now and each day, I love it more and more. This lip product looks different on everyone, as it gives the lips a natural flush of colour that suits the skin tone of the woman who is wearing it. The formula of the balm is enriched with Wild Mango and Luffa Cylindrica to protect and moisturise throughout the day. It looks really flattering while conditioning the lips.
The ‘hardest to get right’ make-up item for me is foundation because I have combination skin but I also want to achieve a natural look with good coverage. The new Dior DIORSKIN Forever Perfect Skin-Perfecting Foundation SPF 35 (review here) is everything I want from a base to be! It’s lightweight and long-lasting, it’s matte but luminous, it’s buildable, looks natural and it’s just good skin in a bottle.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anita (review here) is the lipstick I reach for whenever I want an opaque and sophisticated vintage rose shade that feels comfortable on the lips and lasts a really long time. It has an incredibly special sentimental value for me and it’s one of my most-worn lipsticks in the month of February.
