February Favorites

Saturday, March 1, 2014


Its that time of the month again. This past month I tried a couple new products and rediscovered some old favorites. Here are my february standouts.
  1. Pond's Luminous Clean Daily Exfoliating Cleanser. Early on in February my skin became extremely dry and this product has helped my skin get rid of any flaky/dry patches without drying out my skin. 
  2. Pond's Luminous Finish BB Cream. Right off the bat I'm going to say I do not wear this because it covers any of my spots, because it doesn't. This has absolutely no coverage, I use this as a primer/moisturizer under whatever base. However, I do use this because I wanted to see if the tone correcting properties were true and luckily I have been noticing my dark spots fading. 
  3. Nars Tinted Moisturizer [I'm in the shade St. Moritz]. I love wearing this on days my skin isn't too dry. This has a lovely satin finish and has decent coverage for a tinted moisturizer. 
  4. Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser [Neutralizer]. I haven't quite figured out what the culprit for my intense raccoon eyes this past has been, but I have found my self reaching for this more than normal. I tried really hard not to like this product because I absolutely detest the packaging. But the product is really great, though I have to be careful because this can be to drying under my eyes at times. 
  5. Naked Basics Pallet. I picked this up about two weeks ago, so a new found favorite but I have used it non stop since I picked it up. It has also been great for traveling. 
  6. Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl liner in nude. Again I have no idea why this month my eyes have just looked super tired, but this liner has helped me look alive when I needed it to. 
  7. L'Oreal Lipstick in Volcanic. I have had this shade for years but have never tried to use it. It wasn't till I read orange lips were in for spring and I tried it and now I'm kinda hooked. This isn't a bright orange but a orange-red shade. I think its great for just getting into orange lips. 
  8. Essie Polish in Navigate Her and Sand Tropez. These two shades have been my transition shades from winter to spring. Navigate Her is a beautiful soft creamy green, where Sand Tropez is a beige/taupe shade. 
What were some of your favorite products for February?

Have a great day!

  6. I rediscovered a bunch of old products too this month! That Essie polish looks really beautiful- the color is so unique! I need to try the naked basics palette eventually too! I'm so late on the bandwagon!

  7. I love the age rewind concealer, but I'm 100% with you and hate the packaging. In February I fell in love with hourglass. I finally decided to try a couple of their products and I love them all.
