Products of the month: February 2013

♥ Vichy Normaderm Total Mat ♥

Since Leanne recommended this a while ago, I'd been meaning to try it and I finally found it in Meadowhall a few weeks ago. Total Mat is a hydrating gel primer which helps to control oil and shine by mattifying the skin with its blotting effect micro-powders. Pretty nifty huh? It applies well, sinking into the skin quickly and easily and doesn't feel greasy and isn't heavily scented. I find it helps keep oil at bay for longer than any other product I've used.

♥ L'Oreal Color Infallible Shadow in 015 Flashback Silver ♥

I picked this up on a whim a while ago (yeah, the spending ban sort of went out of the window!) and I've used it so much. Its just gorgeous. Don't let the name put you off. It's sort of a lilacy silver but its so, so pretty. I've been wearing it with a little black liner. Simple, easy look! I was eyeing up the myriad of colours available on Make Up Geek but disappointed to see we can only get a handful in the UK. Sad times!

♥ Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose ♥

I'd seen these all over the blogosphere back at the beginning of January so I thought I'd pick one up. The tin is cute and the product smells amazing. I think it tastes like those little pink shrimp sweets you used to be able to buy. Yummy.  As a lip balm, I'd say its average. Longevity is nothing special but it does help to keep your lips in tip top condition.

♥ Rimmel Nail Rescue ♥

I mentioned this in my latest NOTD post, and I absolutely love it as a base/top coat simply due to its longevity. Although I've found it doesn't have as good a longevity when used with other Rimmel polishes. Strange!

Which products have you been loving lately? Has anyone managed to find the L'Oreal shadows in the UK or bought from the US?
