February Favorites


I can't believe we are already well into March!  I picked up a lot of new products towards the end of February but didn't want to include them in my favorites since I am still testing them out. You will mostly see these products pop up through the month of March though. With that said lets get into my most used/favorite beauty products for the month of February!

Satin Lips Lip Balm – This has been my cure for my dry cracked and peeling lips! I don’t think my lips have been in better shape and I love it!
Korres Anti Aging Face Serum – Since adding this into my skincare routine I have seen such improvement in my skins tone and texture. Its helped fade my hyper pigmentation smoothed out my skin.
Real Techniques  Expert Face Brush – I picked this brush up at the beginning of February. I had gone to ulta to check out the new bold metals collection from the brand and more specifically to check out the contour brush. Unfortunately my store was sold out of them so instead I decided to try this one out. It’s a good size and shape for buffing in my contour powder and is much cheaper than the bold metals brush. I still want to try it out though.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer – This is a great neutral colored bronzer not too orange or red just a nice cooler toned brown, which makes it perfect to use for contouring. I actually use this specifically to contour my nose and cheeks. Its matte so no worries of shimmer allover your face and the texture is extremely smooth and blends out like a dream.
(you will have to excuse my messy products... its a tell tale sign they are loved though)

It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation Illumination – I have found my new staple powder foundation in this one from It Cosmetics. I have always been a fan of powder foundations since they offer high coverage and the matte finish I crave.  This one is amazing as it gives a matte finish but still certain radiance to the skin. The coverage is also quite wonderful you really get a full coverage look without feeling completely cake faced.
Morphe Palette – Jaclyn Hill is one of my favorite YouTube beauty gurus to watch. When she came out with this collaboration with Morphe I knew I would have to get it. This palette is to die for, the shade selection is wonderfully diverse you get plenty of matte and shimmer shades ranging from champagne and neutral browns to bright orange and purple. The texture of these shadows is extremely buttery and smooth you barely need any on your brush as they are highly pigmented. I just can’t say enough about these shadows… Did I mention the price?! This palette was around 28 dollars and the shadows as individuals sell for $2. That’s right 2 DOLLARS!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer – I have fallen in love with concealer and have been using it every day since picking it up! It works so well as an under eye concealer, blends out nicely without settling into any of my lines and you can’t beat that drugstore price!
Oscar Blandi Texture Spray and Dry Teasing Powder – Lately I have been wanting more texture and volume in my hair and my products of choice have been these two from Oscar Blandi. The texture spray is light on the hair but gives the hold and texture I look for on my fine hair. The powder gives instant lift and volume at the roots, I have tried other similar powders but none work as well as this one.
