Janurary/February Favorites

Hi Everyone. Its the end of the February and I noticed I have a lot of products I love and couldnt live without these past few months. I didn't have time to share my favorites last month so I figured I would combine last months favs and this month favs.

The first few products I want to talk about are from Bare Escentuals. These products were previewed at the beginning of February so I was able to get my hands on them early. Bare Minerals are launching their new solid READY Blushes and Bronzers. This is a big deal for BE. Usually all their mineral products are in loose form. These new compacts are great for traveling, throwing in your purse, touch ups, and on the go people.I really liked these color because they are great for everyday, easy to apply, and goes on so smooth.

The 3 colors I picked up (from left to right in the picture) are "The Aphrodisiac Blush", "The High Dive Bronzer, " and "The One Blush." 

The blushes are very pigmented on go on really smooth. The bronzers are pigmented and add a great wash of color on your face for a perfect tan. To see more of my review, check out my blog posts here and here  .

This month my lips have been incredibly dry. I was interested in finding some great lip balms I could wear everyday, but still give me a little color. I heard about ELFs lip blams from friends and bloggers online. I ordered them from their website and got every single color. I love them! Instantly moisturize and add the perfect amount of color. Very nicely pigmented for a lip balm. 

MAC launched a new line in February and happened to have 4 lip balms in the collection. I ended up getting 3 of them and also really like them.

So I have been stuck in a rut when it comes to my eye makeup. I have been wearing lighter colors on my eyes lately and I kind of like it. This has been my go to palette from Bare Escentuals. They are both matte shadows and are perfect basic brows. I use the color on the left (guru) as a base, and the color on the right (namaste) as my crease color. I definitely recommend this duo if you like neutrals and basic browns. 

I cant stop talkin about these!  These Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips are the BEST! I feel like I rather use these then regular nail polish. They stay on so much longer and dont chip nearly as fast as a nail polish. These hold up on my nails so well when I am working. Usually if I paint my nails the day before I work, they end up chipping the next day just from random tasks I need to take care of at work. They come is so many different colors and patterns. I'm hooked! Here is more info on them here

Have you tried any of my favorites? What do you like about them? What have you been using a lot this month?

  1. I've tried those nail polish strip things before and I didn't like them... but I wanna give them a try again because they come in such fun designs! What is that BE duo called? Looks great! I know you use it a lot too

  2. Bed bath & beyond carries Sally Hansen nail strips for $8 and I use 20% off coupon ;)) I love them <3 Question: lasting power on BE blush/bronzer? I have tried Tarter amazonians, Nars, etc etc and I always go back to my Milani ones! I am a nanny and milani blushes honestly last all day! <3
