February Beauty Favorites

February came and gone so fast! Can y’all even believe that tomorrow is March? By the way, I know I say that every month. February was so darn busy for me. My play went up Valentine’s Day weekend and I felt that I pretty much lived at the school. Working from 7 am til 10 pm was rough on not only me, but my husband and Kennedy too.

With all of my time spent at school, I didn’t have that much time to focus on makeup and skincare, so things that work quickly for me and last all day have been my go to. And on that note, let’s take a look at my February Beauty Favorites!

As a side note, I have been on a “no buy” month, so I have not purchased any new products. Okay, well, last week I did purchase the YSL Rouge Volupte and the Naked Flushed palette I mentioned in my wish list post with a Sephora giftcard, but that doesn’t count. Right? Right.

If you’ve been reading a while, you know I am a die hard Colorstay lover. I have strayed since I first sang its praises, and I have used the whipped creme version as well. I went back and bought a darker shade (shade 180) of this in January and oh my goodness, is this foundation better than ever now that I have the absolute perfect color! It has been great to use on days when I’m in a hurry (this goes on easily for me just using my fingers) and lasts all day without any shine. Safe to say, this truly is my holy grail foundation of all time.

Last week I posted a full review on this product, and I seriously think I didn’t use any other eyeshadow palette in the month of February. I love it that much. Read my full review here.

I love natural cleansers without a myriad of chemical ingredients. St. Ives has really been impressing me lately, and among that is this cleanser. It does a great job of getting the job done while also has blemish clearing properties. Love!

This is a rather big fluffy brush if you are planning on using it for eyeshadow, but I actually think this brush is the best for many different things! It can be used for so many different things! I like to use this for using highlighter on my face, blending out eyeshadow, or setting my concealer underneath my eyes with some HD powder! Love love love this brush. By the way, if you are familiar with the MAC 224 brush, this is identical. Sigma brushes are seriously the bomb.

I have previously mentioned this mascara before as one of my favorites, and it even was my favorite mascara of 2012. I started using Cover Girl Lash Blast at the beginning of this year, and I have since then gone back to this and remembered why I loved it so much, so it’s here on my favorites list. I like a drier mascara that is pretty fiber-y. This is pretty much everything I like in a mascara.
