February Beauty Favorites


Feb Beauty Favorites

As a girl constantly battling shine the Urban Decay Setting Spray has been a life saver.  Lightly mist it on your face before you apply your primer. Then again once you've put on all of your makeup and you'll be solid for hours.

While I've been loving the dark lip trend this winter, I just haven't been able to pull the trigger and wear anything too deep on myself. Lately I've been loving Revlon Lip Gloss in Peony. We all know I love anything revlon does for a lip, and this gloss is a little bit milky and has some glitter. I absolutely love it!!!

Thanks to my roommate Becca for introducing me to the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation last year. I recently finished my third bottle of the stuff and I'm so obsessed. It's a medium coverage liquid foundation, and is definitely buildable. I love to use a damp sponge to apply it (like the beauty blender) for an airbrushed finish.

So I've been using theBalm Hot Mama Shadow/Blush solely as a blush, and then I actually read the cover and tried it as a shadow and now I'm even more obsessed. I've been using it as a crease shade with a nude over all shadow for a neutral look. You NEED to try your blush as a shadow y'all! Go home right now and do it.

I received theBalm Put a Lid On It Primer in my January Birchbox, seen here. At the time I still preferred a creamier primer to this more liquidy version, but this product has completely changed my mind. I can't even believe the staying power of this primer. I'm completely obsessed.

I'm kind of loving NYX Cosmetics The Smokey Shadow Palette. The pigmentation is insane for the price. I've been loving these shades too.

I too am obsessed with that blush from Hot Mama. Did I already tell you I ordered the full size version as soon as it arrived in my Birchbox? Well, I love it. I haven't tried it on my eyes though. Perhaps I will do that tomorrow. Love the idea girl!

I love All Nighter. It is my go to for my long days (and long nights), and it lasts FOREVER. I got the Balm Blush in my Birchbox last month...I haven't used it because I'm saving it for when my Benefit Coralista runs out--but thanks for the tip about the shadow. oxo

I really need to try that urban decay spray then, I have major shine on my face after even an hour after applying makeup. I'm glad to hear of products that actually work! Thanks for highlighting these girl :)
