February Favorites

febfavs

Happy Monday!! I hope y’all enjoyed your weekend. I am a little sad that the weekend has come and gone. Today I am sharing with you my favorites from February. I’m a little late, but better late than never. Let dive right into my favorites!

  1. Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette $58// This palette right here! I am in love! One because they collaborated with Gwen, whom I have loved since the No Doubt Tragic Kingdom album. Second, I feel that this is one of the best palettes that Urban Decay has done in a while. It is so versatile and so pigmented. I love that you can create a lot of neutral looks with it, as well as dramatic looks. Look for my review & swatches coming soon.
  2. Macadamia Deep Repair Masque $36// Seeing that I color my hair every 6-8 weeks doing a repair masque is essential. This masque leaves my hair feeling so silky and smooth. It’s color safe, cruelty-free, contains no parabans and is sulfate & gluten free.
  3. Philosophy Fresh Cream Body Lotion $17// I love how smooth this makes my skin feel. It also smells absolutely amazing! It is so moisturizing and absorbs very quickly.
  4. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation $39// This foundation is amazing! It goes on smoothly and blends easily. I love that it hides the redness in my cheeks without having to cake on a ton of makeup. It looks extremely natural and makes my skin have a natural glow. This is hands down one of the best foundations I have tried in a while.
  5. Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Lipstick in Rock Steady $18// This is a deep red wine cream lipstick. It is such a pretty red and it goes on extremely smooth. I am not one that is big on wearing red lipsticks but this made me change my mind. Swatches coming soon.
  6. Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Lipliner in Rock Steady $20// Seeing that I loved the lipstick, I also had to have the lipliner. I was really impressed with this lipliner, because some can be extremely dry but this is not the case. It is also very creamy and goes on smoothly.
  7. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer $28// After hearing my favorite beauty guru Jaclyn Hill rave about this concealer, I had to try it out. I was not disappointed! It has great coverage and very light weight. It does not feel like you have concealer on.
  8. Tarte In Bloom Palette $45// This palette is a great palette because it has a mixture of mattes and shimmery shades. I also love that it is a neutral palette. The shades are very pigmented.
  9. Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer $39// This hands down is one of my favorite primers. My makeup looks extremely flawless when using this primer. It is very moisturizing and contains vitamin E & C.
  10. Burt’s Bees Brightening Daily Facial Cleanser $9.99// I love how smooth my skin feels after washing my face with this cleanser.
  11. Kendra Scott Alexandra Earrings  $65// I have a slight bit of an obsession with Kendra Scott jewelry. I love these earrings because they make me ready for Spring/Summer. They are such a bright pretty color.
  12. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer $24// I could not think of a highlighter that is more perfect than this one. It’s not overly shimmery which I like because some highlighters look like you stepped into a glitter shower.  It also makes you look like you have a natural healthy glow.

So here are my favorites for February! What were your favorites for last month? What are you currently loving?

  2. Lovely items, I just rarely put on more than a little mascara and lipstick. For someone who uses self care products this is a great review and inspiration to try them.

    AH! MIstle! You are making it IMPOSSIBLY hard for me to resist buying makeup! I need to make it a couple more weeks! But, my sister came to visit me a couple weeks ago and brought her Tartlette in bloom palette and I LOVED playing with it! The shades were SO buttery and smooth! My stylist also recommended that Macademia Mask and I’ve been meaning to get my hands on it!

      Cara the palette is so amazing! I really think with the exception of the original Naked Palette, it is one of their best palettes. The review should be hopefully up next week. 🙂

  14. I love macadamia oil! I grew up in Hawaii, and macadamia was everywhere and it really is so beneficial for the skin! These are some great favorites. I also really want/need that Gwen Stefani palette!

      Jamine I am so jealous that you got to grow up in Hawaii! I visited there for two weeks and fell in love. It is beautiful there. The hair masque is absolutely amazing! If you get the Gwen Stefanie palette you will not be disappointed!

  22. I’m a huge fan of the Macadamia hair mask!! I just recently purchased it because my hair has been getting so dry due to the winter, but it really has made a huge difference. I’ve also been wanting to try that highlighter – but I just purchased a Becca one, so my pocketbook needs a break 😉 great post!

      Mattie I love the hair mask! It has done wonders to my hair. I feel that it made it softer and brought it back to life again, seeing I color my hair every 6-8 weeks. I love the highlighter. I have never tried any becca products but I have heard that they are amazing. I may have to try out the highlighter soon. 🙂
