Like the month itself, this February Favorites will be short and sweet. Five items stood out to me during the past four weeks (which, by the way, seemed to fly by). It’s also been an extremely busy month and I’ve looked to products that I can rely on to get me through without having to think about anything too much.
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows Custom Palette: So, if you’ve caught any of my posts over the past few weeks, you know I’ve purchased a new palette (or two…..three). These need additions, coupled with rotating in my other palettes means I haven’t really used one long enough for it to be considered a favorite of the month. BUT, the companion to almost all these palettes (with some exceptions), have been my Make Up Geek eyeshadows. My small Z palette contains 7 matte MUG shadows which I use almost everyday as crease/transition/blending shades. Check out this post for details and swatches, if you’re interested.
YSL Tint in Oil Pink About Me: A product I’ve grown to really love since first purchasing it a couple of months ago. This hydrating oil formula leaves behind a gorgeous fuchsia pink stain that is so natural looking and as comfortable as a balm the lips. I’ve featured it in two posts here and here.
Estee Lauder Double Wear High Cover Concealer: I don’t think I’ve talked about this concealer since featuring it in my first CCO Haul back in December. Although it is potted concealer, I find it sufficiently creamy to use under the eyes, but not so creamy that it creases. The coverage is also on point if you’re looking for something on the fuller end.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light: Most days, especially in cooler months, I use either my NARS light reflecting powder or the Hourglass Ambient powder in Dim Light to set my makeup. It creates a subtle soft focus that I love and the peach really compliments my skin’s undertones.
Dr. Dennis Gross Acne Eliminating Pads: After trying some samples of the pads, I was so impressed that I purchased a full size which retails for $32.00 USD and contains 45 pads. If you use these everyday, they will last you a month and a half. However, the method that works best for me is to use the pads for five nights in a row, after cleansing and before moisturizing. This usually clears any bad breakouts that I might have – and then to maintain I use one pad every third night. Using them this way, they should last me a few months. They’ve completely replaced any topical creams I was using to treat acne breakouts.
That concludes my February Favorites. What have you been loving this month? And no worries, Social Media favorites will be back in full force next month!
