This is my first monthly favourites post of the products I've been enjoying and using very often in the past month. I'll hopefully do a round up at the end of each month if you guys enjoy it?!
Chanel Bagatelle Glossimer Lipgloss - This is one of the first items I picked up from many of the spring collections for 2012 out there. It's my favourite lipgloss so far! You can wear it alone or on top of any pink lipstick and it really looks beautiful with it's warm and shimmering pink sparkle. This is a limited edition glossimer from Chanel so grab it while you can!
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Socialite Pink - This gloss is my number one favourite gloss of the month! It is absolutely gorgeous! A true milky baby pink with pearl and shimmers, non sticky comfortable formula. It adds a dash of colour and is perfect over a lipstick or on it's own.
YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #13 Peach Passion - If your a true beauty addict then you will need no introduction to Rouge Voluptes! I rediscovered this lippy in my stash and have been enjoying wearing it this month quite alot! It's smooth, creamy, moisturising and very pigmented and I did a review couple of weeks ago on this!
MAC Lipstick in Lady Danger - I love matte lipsticks and really wanted a orange toned lipstick, so Lady Danger was the one I picked at the beginning of the month. It's a bright coral red shade with a tinge of orange perfect for a bright lip combo for days when I'm feeling brave!
MAC Lipstick in Modesty - This is my all time holy grail lipstick, it's a my lips but better shade of lippy, I've been trying different shades of natural, nude and pink lipsticks so this got side tracked but I'm back to using it all over again and repurchased it again this month. Highly recommend for golden skin tones.
Balm de la Mer - This is a true winter lip saver, hydrates, softens and keeps lips moisturised so they don't get chapped and dry during the cold months. The beginning of the month was really cold and the best things you can do for your lips is use a lip balm! And this balm is the best I use it everyday and more thaN my Keihls #1 lip balm.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Epatant - I really fell in love with the Chanel Illusion D'Ombres when they first came out but what I've enjoyed wearing the most this month has been the shade Epatant. Epatant is a pewter-golden khaki with a hint of silver which comes through more than the green. But it's a perfect all over eye lid colour, simple, classic and beautiful. Sweep of liner and mascara and your eye makeup is complete!
YSL Creme Gel Eye Liner in #1 Deep Black - I bought this at the beginning of the month, tempted by the long lasting 24 hour gel formula I was sold. To my suprise this is excellent and I use it all the time now, it has replaced my liquid liners and kicked my Bobbi Brown Gel liner out the window too. It's very smooth and creamy and it is long lasting, doesn't remove till you use a eye makeup remover and that's exactly what you want!
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly - I use this on it's own as a lid colour with Espresso in the crease and my natural eye makeup is done! But it's brilliant paired under other eyeshadows as a base due to its neutral skin colour base tone. I'ts my to go product for the eyes!
MAC Eyeshadow in Espresso - A medium matte brown shadow perfect for all over lid colour or mostly I use it in my crease. I usually use Cork but switched up to this. You can also use it on the brows blends perfectly with my new brunette hair shade.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Blonde - My favourite highlighter of the month! I've always used Dior Amber Diamond Skin Poudre Shimmer as a highlighter and that's why never looked up any other highlighter till I read the hype on the Blonde Skin Finish from MAC, a limited edition repromote and I'm so glad I snapped one up! It gives my skin a natural and beautiful radiant glow!
Nars Blush Gaiety - Absolutely must have blusher! A pretty bubble gum pink in a matte formula, gives a natural glow I've only had it a few days but have reached for it so much I had to include it. I reviewed this blush last week and lucky for us it's a permanent new addition to Nars blushes! Yippee!
MAC 187 Duo Fibre Stippling Brush - I use this for my new MAC Mineralize Skin Finish, it applies it lightly and beautifully, the brush has soft synthetic fibres that pick up product lightly and can be used to be built up. I've been using it for my foundation, powder, blushes and highlighters.
