Monthly Faves: February 2014
Celeteque Hair & Scalp Care Cleansing Shampoo &
The Cream Factory Scrub-In-A-Tub in Goats Milk & Cinnamon
I have been using the Celeteque Hair & Scalp Care Cleansing Shampoo ever since I got it and it really changed my hair care regimen. My hair felt lighter and well, cleaner. It really got rid of all the gunk that was caused by all of the hair products that I have been using. I use it once a week and my hair never felt softer ever since.
The Cream Factory Scrub-In-A-Tub in Goats Milk & Cinnamon I can’t get enough of this product. This was in my latest Weekly Raves and I really can’t stop using this. It feels so good and smells so yummy. Don’t eat it though!
Ellana Minerals Chai Tea Latte Loose Powder Foundation – PhP 460;
Ellana Minerals Chai Tea Latte Pressed Foundation – PhP 650;
Revlon Age Defying Targeted Dark Spot Concealer Treatment – PhP 400 @ Bon Marche
These are my goto face makeup if I want a lighter makeup. Both the Ellana Minerals loose powder & the pressed powder offers the same type of coverage that I want. They don’t look cakey on me and they’re not extremely matte. The concealer offers the right type of consistency. It’s a bit thick but it goes a long way and has a nice coverage.
Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow in ‘Bad To The Bronze’ – PhP 300+;
Ellana Minerals Combo Quad Eyebrow/Shadow in Wish, Beloved, Hush & Intense – PhP 350
I have been using my Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow in ‘Bad To The Bronze’ ever since I got it. It’s pretty easy to apply and it makes me look like I’ve made such an effort in my make up even though I didn’t. All I need is my pinky finger and my blending brush and that’s it. Even my nieces love using it, and they kept asking if they can take it home (No way! Hehe).
I love using the Ellana Minerals Combo Quad Eyebrow/Shadow in Wish, Beloved, Hush & Intense not only an eyeshadow but also for my brows. They’re so pigmented and they have a really nice consistency. They last long even without a brow gel.
Ellana Minerals Blush Duo Compact in ‘Kitten & Peach Passion’ – PhP 450
I really like this blush duo because there’s not a shade in this blush duo that I don’t use. I use ‘Kitten’ as much as ‘Peach Passion’ and vice versa. These are the blushes that I use to give me that subtle glow. ‘Kitten’ is this gorgeous pink blush that is best worn when you want that subtle, romantic look. While ‘Peach Passion’ is this beautiful peach blush that you can wear for days when you have either a heavy eye makeup or you’re wearing a bold, statement lipstick. Both of these lipsticks are arleady shimmery and they already give you that nice glow so you don’t need to wear a highlighter.
Revlon Matte Balms in ‘Elusive’, ‘Shameless’ & ‘Sultry’ – PhP 400 (@ Bon Marche)
I cannot tell you how much I have been loving these lippies! I wanna get all of the available shades from this line. They’re matte but not totally. They’re what I prefer to call ‘creamy matte’. They’re moisturizing and they stay on the lips for quite some time as well. They’re not the most affordable lip product available but it’s definitely worth the prize.
Beauty Cosmetics Precision Flat Top Brush, Benefit Hoola Bronzer & Mememe Blush Me Brushes
& 6 Princess by Takashi Murakami for Shu Uemura Heart and Flower Curler
I have been using the Beauty Cosmetics Precision Flat Top Brush in order to buff my concealer It’s perfectly dense and just right to blend in my concealer. The brushes from my Benefit Hoola bronzer & Mememe Blush Me boxes are really very useful. I have been using them to contour my cheeks, and the nice thing about these brushes is that they don’t look streaky and they blend on to my cheeks nicely.
It took me quite some time to finally learn how to use my 6 Princess by Takashi Murakami for Shu Uemura Heart and Flower Curler. I found it difficult at first, but through time and practice, I learned to love it. It’s great because you get to curl every part of your lashes and that doesn’t happen in an ordinary eyelash curler.
So those are my February Favorites. I actually have a ton but I decided to trim it down to just a few. I know that most of these items are from Ellana Minerals, but for some reason, I’ve been totally hooked. Their products are so good and their packaging is so cute!
How about you, lovelies? What are your favorite products this month? Let me know!
