FEBRUARY & MARCH Favorites

These last two months have been quite busy for me, and I just realized that I didn't put up my February Favorites post last month because I simply forget and lost track. So here is a Monthly Favorites post that represents two months (for February & March)...


These are the products that I used the most for the last two months. It includes a hand wash that I got from Marks & Spencer which I use in my bathroom sink. St.Michael / Marks & Spencer are the brand that stands close to my heart because when I was a teenager my mom, aunts, and my older cousins would have the pretty bottles of St.Michael / Marks & Spencer on their vanity (they were all the rage at the time when there were not so many beauty brands available here). One of my favorite scent from them is this one, and how could you not love the pretty bottle of this Marks & Spencer China Blue Moisture Rich Hand Wash, right? ;)

Musk is also one of my favorite scent ever, especially The Body Shop White Musk collection (REVIEW) which I consider my "signature scent" ;p I love it so much and have been using their perfume for several times until now. Lately I've been using a range of products from TBS White Musk to amp up the scent even more. I'm using the White Musk Sumptuous Silk Shower Gel, Smooth Satin Body Lotion, and the Eau de Toilette all at once, respectively.


My favorite candle of the month(s) is the Soft Cotton Blanket candle from Candle-Lite. I love the soft subtle clean scent from it. Cotton is a little bit hard for me because most of the time I don't like cotton scent that reminds me of laundry / detergent scent, but this one is rather different. Instead of smelling like laundry detergent scent this one smells fresh and clean, it kinda reminds me of fresh morning dew ;)

Now on to make-up, there are a couple of things that I used most often during the last 2 months. I am trying to used up my eyeshadow palettes so I've been using this Revlon Photoready Primer + Shadow Palette in Impressionist (REVIEW) for almost everyday. This palette already comes with a primer / base shadow inside so it's quite practical to bring along everywhere. The colors are neutral too (brown/nude) and the primer makes the colors look even more beautiful on the eyelids.


Another makeup product that I've been loving currently is my new Sleek Blush in Flushed. If you read my recent haul post you'll see that I purchased 3 Sleek blushes and although I love all of them but I've been loving this one the most. Just like what many reviews said, this shade brings out a natural blushed/flushed color on your cheek that makes your face looks fresh. It's just simply beautiful and a little bit goes a long way with this one. You don't want to put a lot of this on to your cheek because this is very pigmented, I usually only use the tip of my blush brush slightly and the color would bursts nicely on my cheek.

Last but not least, I have been loving this MUA Intense Kisses High Intensity Gloss in shade Lips Are Sealed lately. I think this is the only lip product I wore for the last two months, LOL. I love the shade and also the texture of the gloss. It doesn't feel sticky and it gives a healthy shine to my lips. Not thick and wet, but just perfect consistency. It looks good when worn alone or when layered with other similar shade lipstick. I am now intrigued to try other shades from MUA Intense Kisses Lip Gloss range, I've heard so many good things about them.

Also, I would like to thank Lucie from the blog From Paris to Jakarta who have included me in her "Favorite Indonesian Beauty Bloggers". I'm so happy if my blog means a little something for someone else, honestly I always doubt if anybody out there reads my blog (;p) so when Lucie told me that my blog somehow inspire her I felt beyond ecstatic to hear that, so thank you so much Lucie!

I don't have a great experience with Marks & Spencer because of the body lotions I bought and that I don't like. But I've never tried their hand washes.
Thank you for mentioning me Yuri :D
