February favorites :)

11. marec 2014


Hello lovelies! I know I'm pretty late with my February favorites but I swear... February went by so damn fast! Yes, it's the shortest month of all, but still... :) Anyhew... I have quite a few favorites to show you. A few have stayed the same but most are 'new'. 


MAKEUP




In the makeup department I've been absolutely loving my UD Naked3 palette. Ever since I got it, I used it practically every time I did my makeup. The shades I've been 'rocking' the most are Buzz and Liar (as I predicted) along with all the matte shades. It's a really stunning palette and I highly recommend it.

To help my eyeshadows last all day I've been using theBalm Put a lid on it eyeshadow primer and it works great! :)

My skin has been behaving all through February so I switched back to mineral foundation - Lily Lolo in the shade Blondie. I've been using my Ecotools Bronzer brush for applying it (I switch between this one and the Lily Lolo kabuki, which is the best brush ever).

Two new products that have quickly become favorites are theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter and Alverde LE lipstick in Velvet Kiss. I was a bit concerned about the highlighter being too shiny but I actually discovered it was just right - not too shiny and not too subtle (full review coming soon). The lipstick was something I bought on a whim after seeing it on Ina's blog (Lovely Little Luxuries) and boy am I happy I bought it. It's a gorgeous red lipstick that's really wearable for me (full review with swatches coming soon).



SKIN CARE




In the skin care departement I've been really enjoying La Roche-Posay Serozinc spray as a second toner (before I apply my face cream). It freshens up the skin and calms it down, a lovely product (thank god I'm stocked up on it - thank you Sanja!). The other toner I've been loving is of course Mario Badescu Glycolic acid toner - a great exfoliating toner that keeps my skin from getting congested and keeps those blackheads at bay. For my face I've been loving Antipodes Vanilla Pod day cream - the scent of this cream is aaamazing and I love it just as much as the Avocado Pear night cream (full review coming soon). :)

I've been having a lot of eye problems all through February (puffy, tired, irritated, even painful eyes - supposedly something to do with my sinuses though doctors couldn't really find out what was going on). They can still get puffy and irritated so I'm really happy I have the miracle that is Liz Earle Eyebright Soothing eye lotion at my disposal. I've been using it religiously and I can't tell you how much it has helped me. I'm running out of it so I'll have to repurchase it soon...

I've been also enjoying the new Garnier Micellar Cleansing water - it's basically the same as the L'Oreal one except it comes in a better packaging and there's more of it for the same price. I use this to clean up around my eyes when I'm doing my makeup, take off my red lipstick or sometimes to take off an entire face of makeup (since I haven't been wearing a lot of it - just mineral foundation with some mascara and a lipstick).

Last but not least... I've been using and enjoying both of my Sierra Bees organic lip balms (I get them when I order something on iHerb). I have one in my purse/pocket and one on my night stand at all times. I have the balm in Cocoa and in Honey and I love them both (I probably love the Honey one a bit more).



OTHER




The perfume I've been loving is still Illamasqua's Freak - I just can't get enough of it! Gorgeous scent! :) On my nails I loved two of my new Essie nail polishes - Demure Vix and Trophy Wife (I wore the latter for almost 14 days!). And speaking of nail polishes, I had to mention my favorite 'treatments/top/base coats' - Seche Vite Dry fast top coat (best top coat I've ever tried), Essie's Grow richer base coat/treatment (it really does help your nails grow quicker) and Nailtiques Formula 2 protein enriched base coat/treatment (great for strengthening your nails). I'll talk more about all three of them in a separate post. And because my hands have been really dry lately, I've been slathering on the Cacao & Orange hand cream from Yves Rocher.


So, here you have them... my February favorites. What do you think of them? What were some of your February favorites? :)

  5. Tudi jaz sem navdušena nad Garnier micelarno, doma imam tudi Mary Lou-manizer in se res lepo posveti na ličnicah, oz. tudi na vekah, kjerkoli pač želiš poudarit.. ni preveč shiny, mene je bilo tudi strah tega :D

    1. Ja, fajna je ta micelarna, pa veliko boljšo pakiranje ima kot L'Orealova. Mary-Lou Manazier je pa tudi meni čudovit highlighter. :D
