I have a natural weakness for highlighters. I'm obsessed already with healthy glowing skin, and so highlighters are often my best friend. When I first saw pictures of the beautiful Belladonna Highlighting Palette Armani was set to release as part of their 'Effeto Nudo Collection for Spring 2014' I knew I had to have it. My love for highlighters paired with my ongoing love affair with Armani makeup made this my "ultimate makeup product".

February has flown by! I've been giving away and throwing away a lot of products, both skincare and makeup. Doing so has left me feeling less guilty about using only my favourite things and in so I've stuck to most of the products you see here. The February weather got very mild very quickly and it looks like winter is over in Norway for this year. The snow has certainly disappeared and it doesn't look like it's coming back. I'm already in a spring mood and ready for the temperature to rise even more! Now if only we would get some sunshine...

After a sample-heavy January I decided to put that project on pause and just enjoy my regular sized products during February. At the beginning of the month I started going through my makeup and actually getting rid of some stuff. Midway through the month a lot of products started finishing. I had a week where I was finishing full sized products every day, sometimes more than one. Finishing makeup was especially exciting. After trying to get through products for a while now, to finally see it pay off was very motivating. I had a friend visit that I almost never get to see that wanted some of the makeup I had put aside and decided to let her have it even though I hadn't featured it here yet. I'll add it still to the count and mention the products at the end of the post.

Spend five minutes in the beauty blogging world and you're quite likely to stumble upon a post on this little orange number by REN. Undoubtedly one of, or the star product of their line I've read nothing but raves about the glycolic acid based peel mask. When I received this a few months ago, naturally I was quite excited to finally see what all the fuss is about.

I use SPF 50 every day on my face. Winter, Summer, Spring or Fall. Every single day. Even if I'm at home. I've previously taken this around my eye area as well, but wasn't sure if it was really the best idea. This because you always hear warnings about how you shouldn't really take products too close to the eye that aren't specifically meant for it. Then one day I saw the Clinique Superdefense Age Defence Eye Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 20. Having read no reviews, never heard it mentioned, nor even bothering to read the incredibly long name fully - I grabbed one and went straight to the cashier.

The GinZing eye cream has been a long time blogger and youtube favourite. When the news spread last year of a moisturiser with the same name being released it understandably got everyone really excited. And the product didn't seem to disappoint. All over the internet this orange pot of seemingly liquid gold got raves from everyone that tried it. Of course I had to try it for myself.

The last half of 2013 I got introduced to Aesop, and I've loved most of what I've tried and everything I've bought. One of the first purchases I made was the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Toner.

I don't buy many Dior polishes. This is only because I'm so smitten with Chanel's offerings that I usually try to limit myself to just that brand. Partly because it helps curb my spendings, but also because having all Chanel nail polish bottles looks very aesthetically pleasing. A few times I've regretted not picking up a Dior polish though. I'm not sure why, but when I saw this gorgeous pastel shade of Blue was coming out as part of Dior's spring collection I just knew this would be another one I'd end up regretting not having, so for once I took the plunge.
