Hello Everyone! It has been a while since I did a favorites post so here were some of my favorite things in February!!
1: NARSissist Smokey Eye Compact
I have been loving this palette since I got it for Christmas. It comes with three eyeshadows ( Madrague I, Bali and Mekong) which are great together. The eyeshadow does go on quite dark so I do not wear it during the day but when I go out, I generally will put this on. It also stays on for a long time which I like because I do not need to worry about it. This palette also comes with the Wide Contour Eyeshadow Travel Brush #43 and Via Veneto Mini Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner. I have not used the brush, but I really love the eyeliner and will be buying the full size when I run out of the mini. This is a great palette for someone that is looking for darker shades to make a smokey eye and I highly recommend it.
2. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
I cannot say enough good things about this mascara, I absolutely love it and it has been a favorite of mine for quite a long time. I really like that the applicator brush is big and that it does not clump up your eyelashes which is something that really bothers me with other mascaras. I also like that the mascara itself goes on black and you do not really need more than one coat in my opinion especially if you are also putting false eyelashes on. You do need to take your time applying it because it can be a bit messy if you are in a rush but all in all this mascara is worth purchasing.
3. Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
This is a new favorite as I only bought it a week ago, but this product definitely lives up to the hype. This product lowers the temperature of your makeup which is meant to keep it in place for a longer period of time and it does a great job. It is nice that when you are wearing this, you do not need to worry about how your makeup looks when you are out and about as much. It is a bit pricey for the 4 oz bottle ($36 CAD) but totally worth it if you find that you are needing to touch up a few times during the day or when you are out.
4. Bobbi Brown BB Cream SPF 35- Fair
This is another long time favorite of mine and I use it everyday. It is so important to wear makeup with SPF in it, especially if you burn easily like me! This is usually all I need as far as face makeup goes besides a little bit of setting powder. I like how easily it goes on and it does not leave my skin looking dewy which I like. As far as higher end BB Creams go this is a bit pricier than others you can get at Sephora
($53 CAD) but a little goes a long way; I use it everyday and I just bought a new one after 4 months. If you are looking for a new BB Cream and are willing to spend a bit more, I suggest trying this.
5. The Theory of Everything
This was such a great movie and if you have not seen it yet, you should. Everything about this movie was good from the it was acted to the score. Before seeing this movie I did not know much about Stephen Hawking's life and I found the movie really interesting. It is based on a book that Jane Hawking wrote called Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen and since watching the movie I have been reading the book as well. Anyone that knows me well knows that I can cry fairly easily and I cried all throughout this movie. It did a beautiful job of showing how ALS has not only effected Stephen Hawking, but those close to him as well. I also thought the love story between Stephen and Jane Hawking was unique and made me think if I would be as strong as Jane if I was ever put in a similar situation. It deserves all the recognition that it has been receiving and I am looking forward to buying this movie when it comes out.
Those were my monthly favorites, I am curious what were some of your beauty or just in general favorite things in February?
