This month I've become obsessed with quite a few products. I'm going to post a more detailed video on my YouTube Channel, so I won't bore you with too many details here! I'll include links to make it easier for you to find these items online :)
Mario Badescu Botanical Facial Gel
This month I rediscovered my love for Mario Badescu's Botanical Facial Gel. I used this cleanser in high school and then COMPLETELY forgot about. Thank goodness I happened to see it online one night! This cleanser is not soap-based, so it doesn't lather at all, but it's really effective at controlling oil without completely drying out your skin. LOVE. You can buy it here!
Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub
Another skincare fav for February is Neutrogena's Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub. I don't know about you, but I really like it when skincare products just feel like they're working :) This scrub's menthol content gives it a really addicting tingly cooling sensation. You can buy it here!
Exuviance Moisture Balance Toner
One of the girls working at my Ulta store recommended this toner to me. I'm usually a sucker for toners with high salicylic acid content, but she insisted that I try a gentler toner this month. The Exuviance Moisture Balance Toner smells ridiculously incredible- kind of an apple-raspberry-floralish scent- and it's has miraculously helped control my oily skin this month. It's kind of expensive, but I've only gone through about 1/4 of the bottle in one month. You can buy it here!
Tarte Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess
Oh my goodness, I cannot say enough good things about this bronzer. This is definitely my holy grail bronzer, and I will have to do a more detailed review on it asap. Tarte's Mineral Powder Bronzer in Park Ave Princess is literally everything I could ever want in a bronzer. In real life, it's darker than this photograph, but the color is just the most perfect slightly shimmery bronze color. The powder gives good color without being so pigmented that your skin looks streaky, and the coverage lasts even in high heat and heavy humidity. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Do yourself a favor and buy this now!
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
I used to be a huge StyliStyle eyeliner fan, but Urban Decay has converted me once again. Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero is the perfect black eyeliner Highly pigmented, smooth application, super longlasting, and just the right amount of waterproof-ness! It will stay on your waterline all day, but it comes off easily with makeup remover. I have these pencils in several colors, but Zero is definitely my favorite! You can buy it here.
Smashbox Lip Enhancing Sheer Color Lipgloss in Illume
Since spring is just around the corner, I've been reaching for lighter lip shades. Smashbox's Illume lip gloss is the perfect pinkish-nude color with just the right amount of shimmer. I'm not super crazy about the brush, but I love the texture and color of the gloss! I've been wearing this gloss almost every day! Buy it here.
Maybelline Great Lash BIG Mascara in Blackest Black
No matter how many high-end mascaras I try, I keep coming back to Maybelline. They just have the best mascaras for the best price. I'm currently in love with the Great Lash BIG collection, especially the color Blackest Black. I brush is ridiculously big, and the mascara builds volume and length without clumping or smudging. I highly recommend you go buy some!
Urban Decay Book of Shadows III NYC Palette
I have a problem. I cannot stop buying Urban Decay palettes, BUT I definitely do not regret buying the Book of Shadows III. First of all, the palette lights up! How cool. Urban Decay eyeshadows are so luxuriously siky and super pigmented, and I loved the mix of bright and neutral colors in the palette. I got another one of my FAVORITE 24/7 Eyeliners in Zero and Ransom along with their awesome Primer Potion. This palette was limited edition unfortunately, but you can still buy one here! Unfortunately, it's quite a bit more expensive than it originally was!
Essie Nail Polish in Turquoise and Caicos
It's been cold in LA lately, so I've been lusting for summer almost every day. I can only be excited about sweaters and boots for so long! I need sunshine! Essie's Turquoise and Caicos is such a pretty light turuoise. The coverage is slightly sheer, so I used about 3 or 4 coats to get it really opaque and beautiful. You can try it for yourself here!
Davines Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle Deep Conditioner
I'm constantly on the lookout for deep conditioners for my color-treated, dry, and damaged blonde hair. My hair stylist recommended Davine's Nourishing Vegetarian Miracle to me recently, and I really feel like my hair is much stronger and more resilient since I started using it. I love this formula because while it's super moisturizing, it is not greasy or heavy at all. It's so light that my stylist recommended using it EVERY time I washed my hair before my normal conditioner. Awesome product. Buy some here!
That's all of my favorites for now, but I will be adding some additional favorites to my video....so be sure to check it out and subscribe to my YouTube Channel!
