February Favourites

It has been soooo long since I’ve written a monthly fave post, I can’t even remember the last time. I usually just stick to the products I like for a long time before trying out something different so, no point writing about the same product every month, I think. However, since the new year started, I did change my makeup routine a bit and tried out new bits that I have been using ever since.

First I wanted to start with a rediscovery, the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara I was obsessed with for so long, then I felt I wanted to try out different mascaras and I didn’t really use it for a while. Then recently I picked it up and I remembered how much I liked it! Don’t really have to go into the details, as I feel like we all own this mascara, but it gives length, volume, and just simply beautiful lashes that are not clumpy at all. If you haven’t tried it yet, then you definitely should, as it is one of the best, if not the best, mascara in the drugstore.

The next thing is the Rimmel Exaggerate eyeliner, I have been using on my tightline for the last two months. I really like it there, it stays put and most importantly it does not run down under my eyes. Granted I do use a setting spray but still, sometimes eyeliners still manage to run down and leave me stuck with patches of black eyeliner at the end of my eye. Not cute, and that have been a struggle for a long time. But a good eyeliner and a setting spray works wonders.

I have been loving another eyeliner that I got it in January’s Birchbox, and it is the Marcelle eyeliner in Charcoal. From the name I expected it to be black to be honest, but it is grey. I have been neglecting my winged eyeliner this year (although knowing me it will come back soon), trying out something different, which ended up being this eyeliner on the outer third of my eyelid. Giving sort of a smokey effect, but not too harsh, perfect for daytime.

Also here is an unedited swatch for both of the liners:

And my last fave for this month is an eyeshadow trio I got in February’s Birchbox ¬†,it is by the brand The Beauty Crop. I rarely buy new eyeshadows thinking I have enough and I should use those, so I was happy to receive a new one. It is a pretty staple trio, I like the gold and light brown shimmery shades with the dark matte at the bottom. I will say the same thing, I would like the matte one to be a bit lighter shade for the crease, but this way it is a perfect for lining my eyes. I have been enjoying to use this trio for the month of January.

February faves

Another month has gone from 2017, it is really crazy how fast time goes. But to be honest I can’t wait for spring and summer, and just generally more sunshine. In the meantime, while we’re waiting, what better to do than try out new beauty bits, and then blog about them, right? ūüėČ So let’s get into all the products I discovered and loved in the month of February.

The Body Shop Seaweed Oil Balancing Clay Mask

At the beginning of the month I took a trip to The Body Shop, because I wanted to try out new skincare bit and bobs. The first thing to catch my eye was the seaweed clay mask for oily and combination skin. Masks never really have been a part of my skin care routine, but always wanted to try a clay mask. So I did, and I have to say I really like it. It works like every clay mask I imagine, you put the clay onto your skin, leave it for 10 mins to dry and work its magic. My skin feels extra clean after it and really smooth. Beware though, that this mask will probably draw out your spots and zits, but that is all okay, because that’s what a mask is supposed to do. Also be careful when you’re taking it off, so wet your whole face before starting to wash it off, so that you won’t pull your face with dried clay on it (ouchhh!) .

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

I’m probably the only beauty blogger who hasn’t tried and used this sponge¬†yet. Somehow I was always using brushes and my fingers to apply foundation and to be honest I rarely think about changing things up in my make up routine, but I thought it was time to give this sponge a chance. So compared to a brush, using a sponge to blend in your foundation is a way better choice. With dabbing the foundation onto the skin, you can work it in really well, I find it gives more coverage as I’m not pulling my foundation on my face. Overall it gives you a better and flawless finish, it’s soo easy to use and absolutely worth the money and now I couldn’t go back to using my brushes or fingers.

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid

I am a sucker for a matte lippie. No matter how many I own already I know that I will always want more. I like wearing matte lipstick on my lips more than non matte ones. I like that they are dry and stay put all day, and because I have my teeth sticking out I don’t have to worry about lipstick getting on them all the time. So it was inevitable to try out some of the Body Shop matte lipstick as well. I got two shades Tapei Orchid which is a bright pinky shade, the perfect kind of pink I like, another one is Nairobi Camellia which is a darker pinky shade. They stay put for hours and they don’t dry my lips. Oh and they smell soo sweet and good. The formulation is thicker than the Too faced or Barry M ones, but they are very easy to apply nonetheless.

Benefit POREfessional primer

This was safe to say my best find in February. I splurged out on a Benefit Porefessional primer and it has changed so much in my make up routine. I have giant pores on my cheek near my nose, and I always hated them. I usually just used my foundation to cover them up, and make them disappear, but then I got a sample of this product last Christmas and tried it out and fell in love with it. It has a silky consistency, it is transparent and it makes your pores invisible. Win,win,win! I know it is on the pricey side, but everybody is raving about it for a reason, it is that good.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Mask

After the cold winter months, I find that using a moisturizer in the morning is not enough for my face anymore, it still feels dry like a plant that really needs watering. So I was very happy when I found this Body Shop Vitamin E sink in Mask. It feels like gelatin in a tub, and you apply it before going to bed, after you’ve done your skincare routine of course, and leave it in for overnight, wash it off the next morning. My skin feels so soft and nice after using it. ¬†Would absolutely recommend if you have dry skin, using it twice a week will work wonders, I can promise you that.

So these were all my fave for the month of February. What were you’re fave products that you discovered?
