Winter Favourites

As a creature of habit I find it really difficult to find a different bundle of products for monthly favourites so today I have another seasonal favourites for you. I have previously written Summer and Autumn faves posts, but when it comes to winter it is clear I am all about the hydrating, perfecting products that somehow manage to keep me looking normal while the weather tries everything to make me look disheveled.

First up is the Nivea Express Hydration Primer I cannot put into words how much I have been loving this. I have always had dry skin in the winter months but this primer is like a second moisturiser. Foundation sits perfectly on this, it stays put all day and prevents it from dehydrating you skin. If you are not a massive fan of silicone based primers, this is the one for you. Review

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch pressed powder This is a rekindles love; because I have been using more dewy foundations this just makes everything look a little more matte. I only apply this in the morning and my face is shine free for the rest of the day. It's just the best powder for setting your make up in place. Review

Soap & Glory Mini Hand Food Who hasn't had dry hands this season? I normally never carry around a hand cream but this one smells so nice I actually enjoy applying this. 

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil Admittedly I was a little skeptical of this but after seeing various you-tubers rave after this I thought it was well worth a go, and I actually rather like it. I normally hate applying oil anywhere on my skin, and although I do have to use a cream cleanser to get rid of the oil texture on my skin, this is sooo good at taking eye make up off. 
Maybeline Forever Strong Professional Nail Varnish in shade Rose Podure. After wearing Essie's Bahama Mama throughout Autumn I was well and truly ready for some neutral shades and this is the perfect natural pink. The formula of these polishes is amazing! I can wear this all weak without a single chip. 

A new find last month CoLab Dry Shampoo Extreme Volume is now the only product I use in my hair. It makes 2nd day hair possible and gives a shed load of volume. Winter is just not about having limp looking hair.

I feel I needn't explain why I have been loving the NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette, I have not heard one negative review of this, all I will say is the NARSissist Blush Contour And Lip Palette Looks amazing and perhaps if they had come out at the same time I would have gone for that one. I have been using the Laguna bronzer and Sex Fantacy blush nearly everyday since I got this. Review

Lastly, Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer has replaced Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer for my go to concealer. I used to use this everyday about 2years ago and I totally forgot about it until the Skin Enhancer was just feeling a little drying on my skin. The Match Perfection is so creamy but it doesnt crease and it gives a really decent coverage.

I would love to know what you have been loving, let me know in the comments and leave me some links of your recent favourites post.
