Hi, guys! I hope you all are well. February has been a good month and seems to have gone by much slower than January! I had a pretty good month and yesterday was my birthday so March is getting off to a good start haha. Let me know what your favorite products have been this month and if there’s anything you’re breaking up with!
Makeup and Skincare:
Kat Von D – Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad in Plum
I am just so in love with this palette. I am so sad it’s being discontinued. The quality of these shadows is amazing! They blend great, highly pigmented. They’re just awesome and I’ve been using it a lot lately. This is the only palette I keep in my makeup bag, I think that says a lot.
This palette has gone in and out of stock at Sephora the last few months, so you might not be able to find it easily but if you do – it’ll be well worth the search.
Wet n Wild – Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette in Rosé in the Air.
I recently wrote a review about this palette (see link above) and I really love it. Any makeup lover can tell just by looking at it that it’s pretty dead on dupe for ABH’s Modern Renaissance palette. I love 9/10 of the shades and I find myself using them every day. I am so impressed by this palette. It’s only $5 and I think everyone should try it! If you’d like to know more of my thoughts, I recommend checking out the review I did, it’s pretty detailed.
This month I have really been loving this serum. It’s the first product I’ve tried from The Ordinary and it will not be the last. If you are unfamiliar with The Ordinary, the offer skincare at a very inexpensive price tag and have recently started selling at Sephora! When I saw they were expanding at Sephora I was SO happy because I’ve wanted to try something from them for so long. I was not disappointed! First, the price. $6.80. GASP. I’m blown away by the price. Second, this is a really good product. My skin has been really dry this winter and this product has really helped. My skin is still a bit on the dry side but I can tell this has made a difference in my skin.
One thing I will say about this product is to use a very small amount then build from there if needed. If you apply too much it starts to peel. Around four drops are all you need. Also, make sure it has fully dried before applying other skincare products. If you have dry skin I highly recommend trying this!
I used to use this toner a long time ago, I think I was 11 or so. I really liked it because it helped with acne and made my skin feel really good. So when I recently ran out of toner I picked this up to try again! I’m so glad I did. I feel like it has brightened and balanced my skin. It’s also made a big difference in my pores. I still have pores, but they have reduced very much. Like The Ordinary serum, this toner is so inexpensive. I picked up a 16 oz bottle at Walgreens for $6. That’s crazy! It works great, does what it says, and it’s inexpensive. What more could you ask for?
TV Shows and Albums:
Kelly Clarkson – Meaning of Life
I love Kelly Clarkson and I love this album. I think it’s one of her best albums ever and there’s just so many good songs on it!
Offspring is an Australian TV show with 7 seasons, it’s available on Netflix (in the US at least). Nina is a really amazing, unique character who is an obstetrician with a crazy family. I started this show on a whim, I’ve never heard anything about it before watching. It’s a really great show, it is pretty dramatic/a bit like a soap opera from time to time. I really recommend this show for a good binge but I would also recommend skipping the first season, it was pretty slow and I almost stopped watching the series because of it.
I’ve been on the fence with this eyeliner for some time now and I’m just done with it. My issues with it are
- It is not waterproof.
- It transfers to the lower waterline when worn on the upper waterline.
- It bleeds outside of the waterline.
- It is not that pigmented (for the waterline).
If you’re not using this on the waterline it would probably work better but I would still pass, it’s overpriced in my opinion. I think there are so many better eyeliners out there and for a much better price.
That concludes my favorites and makeup breakup! Let me know in the comments what you’re loving and breaking up with this month! Have a great day!
Let’s get social!
