February Beauty Favorites

February was a month full of favorites! Texas had terrible weather a majority of the month, so I pulled out a lot of my favorite "dry" skin weather essentials. 

Skin Care Favorites:
1. Ponds cold cleansing cream-this stuff has been my ride or die this year. I love to get all of my makeup off with this, and then leave it sitting on my face for a few minutes to let it do its magic. It leaves my skin feeling SUPER clean and moisturized, which is kinda hard to find in a moisturizer. If you are struggling with dry skin and looking for a new cleanser, I highly recommend this. 

2. Chantecaille Jasmine & Lily Healing Mask-I have been using this mask for 2 years now and have absolutely no complaints about it. On days where my skin is feeling dry and sensitive, I love to sleep in this mask. As I have said before, I suffer from sensitive skin that is prone to red splotchy breakouts. When I went to the Chantecaille counter the lady working there suffered from the same thing and said this product turned it all around. Read more about it HERE.

Makeup favorites:
1. The Body Shop Radiant Highlighter- I bought this a few months ago based on the stellar reviews on their website. I love to use this product on days where my skin is dull. I mix it in with my foundation, or I use it as a primer. It doesn't appear to shiny or sparkly, just perfect. I highly recommend this. Pick it up here
2. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer-I picked this up in my local Ulta in December, after being recommended by one of the sales associates. She said that the manager suffered from dry skin and that this product made a serious difference. The first time I used it, I worried my skin was too sensitive for this product because it burned a bit, but I continued to use it and now my skin LOVES it. I really do notice a difference in my makeup on days when I forget to use this versus when I use it. When it comes to staying power I would say it does the job, but I wouldn't buy this if you are looking for a heavy duty makeup primer. I rely on this product to prime my face and hydrate my skin before putting on my foundation. Pick it up here!
3. Physicians Formula Eye Boost Instant Lash Extensions Kit-I will say I do have a few complaints about this mascara, but overall this month it has been a favorite. This mascara looks AMAZING on. I have a full review blog post coming this week on this. You can buy it online here.

4. Elf Essential Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer-this stuff is crazy good, and crazy cheap. I love that it has a bit of pigment to cover any veins or discoloration on your eyelid. This product is an absolute EVERYDAY essential for my routine. LOVE IT. Link to buy.
5. Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Single in Brûlée- I bought this when I heard Tati from Glamlifeguru talk about how much she loved this product. For 99 cents I couldn't resist. This shadow provides such a great base color for your eye shadow look. I wear it everyday, even if I am doing a no makeup look. Link.

I hope you enjoyed my favorites!

  1. Love your post on your favorites. Most especially on the Too Faced Hangover Rx primer. I have been wanting to try it out becuase I have very dry and sensitive skin. When I saw that it has coconut water infused, I was all like I have to get it lol. Great blog! I will definitely be coming back to read more! After reading your post, I am for sure now going to buy the primer! :)
