Makeup favorites from Jan-March 2015

I don't do monthly favorites because I tend to use the same makeup products consistently unless I ran out of something or I've tried something better to replace the current ones I have.
Recently in the month of Jan to March, I've rummaged through my existing makeup collection and decided to give some products a second try. Turns out, I loved them even more now since they work better with my new hair color!

M.A.C 'Ladies Who Lunch' Mineralize Rich Lipstick
It is a medium blue-based pink with a cool undertone and a sheen finish. The pigmentation is lovely and the product glides onto my lips really effortlessly. It has a lightweight formula that is creamy, non-sticky plus really moisturizing on my lips as well. Like all other M.A.C lipsticks, it is vanilla scented and I am absolutely in love with this product.
The first time I wore this out, I got a compliment from J who said I should wear this colour out more often as it looks better on me than the other red tones lipstick that I've been using!
The packaging is also amazing as they have a magnetic strip between the cap and the tube so that the cap won't come off by itself when you drop it into your handbag. Talk about innovative product design!
I have a sudden urge to get the rest of the colors in the Mineralize Rich lipstick makeup line.

SLEEK Pixie Pink blush
It is a barbie pink colour with blue undertone and a matte finish.
I've never touched this product before even though I have this in my collection since last year. Since I was using my M.A.C Ladies Who Lunch lipstick, I thought I would match my lips and blush so I dig this out to use.
On a side note, I have never hit pan on any of my is that even possible?! However, I do believe that I will hit pan on this blush eventually since I have been searching for the perfect blush color for my skin tone and this fits me perfectly.
All Sleek blushes are highly pigmented and I adore them. So far I only have 3 of them in my makeup collection (Rose Gold- dupe for NARS Orgasm, Pixie Pink and Antique-which I've yet to try too).

NAKED Basics palette
I used to use this a couple of years back when it first come out but then I stopped and switched to other palettes. Now I'm back to using this again because it is just really easy to get the neutral semi-smokey eye look that I like to have.

Out of the six colours available, I only use two of them.
VENUS across my eyelid and inner corners of my eyes.
FAINT as a contour shade at the outer corners of my eyes.
I find that this combination works better on me as it doesn't look too overdone.

Penhaligon's Peoneve
Last but not least, my new favorite perfume.
I love rose scented perfume but Penhaligon's Peoneve is slightly different. It has a slightly spicy undertone in addition to the rose scent which makes it even more alluring to me. I find the harmony of the notes used in this perfume really smooth and addictive....I can't stop taking a whiff of it every once in a while!

So that's all of the products that I have been loving so far.
I'm currently testing out the BB cushions from three of the Top Korean brands to see which works better! I'm on the third BB cushion now but I kept forgetting to check how it looks like at the end of the day, after a long night out, before I remove my makeup.
