What's in my February Makeup bag?

As I've stated previously (see here) I've been switching up my makeup alot more so as to get better use out of my collection, but there are certain products that I just can't empty from my makeup bag because they're so darn good.
Bourjois' Healthy Balance powder is a must for me. It's the best powder I've come across for adding a little coverage and matte-ing things down without any sort of cakiness whatsoever. This is a firm contender in my makeup bag. 
Another one that has yet to leave is my NARS Sheer Glow foundation. Again, I'm finding it really hard to fully part from this badboy lately. It's just so good at making my skin look flawless and I never want to be without it. This foundation has also been working really well in conjunction with Maybelline's Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. I was a little sceptical at pairing these two, but they seem to have become the best of friends. 
As my previous post also stated, I've been rekindling my love for Maybelline's Better Skin concealer. Not the best shade match for me, granted but it does cover well and doesn't stick to any dry patches which January has left a fair few of on my face.
Eye-wise, I've been loving the Rimmel Glam Eyes Professional Liquid Liner. It's my go-to when it comes to winged eyeliner - it's black, dries matte and doesn't budge all day. I've been pairing this with the new Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, the only thing I hate about this mascara is that it isn't waterproof but it's great for adding separation and volume to my lashes. 
For brows, I've been sticking to my trusty H&M Eyebrow Fix - it keeps my eyebrows tamed and in place all day and all for the measly price of £2.99. Since it is so cheap I should probably pick myself up another, my current one's looking a little bit worse for wear nowadays. 
To add colour to my cheeks I've been obsessed with the Makeup Revolution Vivid Blush Lacquer in Rush - it gives the nicest, natural tint to the cheeks with the smallest amount of product. I've also been using Benefit's Hoola as my everyday bronzer/contour. It's cool toned enough that it can be used for either. For a cheekbone sheen, it's got to be the Makeup Revolution Radiant Light in Exhale - the most gorgeous highlighter to ever be made. EVER.
Lastly, my lipstick of choice has been Rimmel's Kate Moss Lasting Finish in 03. A lovely, browny-nude that goes with any skintone and it wears off like a dream too.
