Happy weekend my loves! Today’s post features my high end beauty favourites for the month of February. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favourite high end beauty splurges so you can all confidently purchase any of these items knowing you’re not wasting your money!

Lipstick: This Chanel lipstick is the most perfect nude shade! The colour is very deceiving, but in an excellent way! When initially looking at the lipstick in the packaging, it looked like a dark nude/brown. After applying a couple layers of the lipstick, I noticed it applied more shear than expected. My favourite part about this shade in particular is that it lets your natural lip shade shine through! You will NOT regret purchasing this lipstick.

Lip Maximizer: To be completely honest, I purchased this Dior Lip Maximizer near the end of February so I haven’t used it for all that long. What I can say is that the results I have noticed so far are very promising! As instructed, I have been applying the maximizer to my lips every morning before I do my makeup, and every night after I’ve washed my face (before bed). After 15 days you are suppose to notice a positive change to your lips (more plump, fullness, etc). My results so far have been exactly what Dior states the product will achieve! I will definitely be repurchasing this product.

Foundation Brush: Sigma is my absolute favourite makeup brush brand, so it was no surprise to me when I found myself reaching for this brush every time I was about to apply foundation! This is such a high quality brush and it proves so when distributing your foundation! Let Sigma know I sent you if you decide to purchase this brush.

Mascara: I am usually very picky with mascara and have always had a great deal of trouble finding a mascara that I stick to/repurchase. I purchased this mascara at Sephora (on a whim) and ended up LOVING it. Not only does it make your eyelashes look like falsies, but it is very easy to apply and the end result looks beautiful. I do have naturally full/long eyelashes, but even so, I love the way the brush for this mascara distributes the product throughout my lashes with just a couple blinks.

Face Cleanser: For those of you who have been following me for a while, you are probably aware that I have sensitive/acne prone skin. When it comes to makeup and skincare, I have to be super careful about the products I use. First Aid Beauty carries a variety of skin care products that are all safe for sensitive skin. I use this cleanser with my Clarisonic (in the mornings or before bed) when I have a fresh face without any trace of makeup.
