February 2016 Faves
St. Ives Even & Bright Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub – I’ve always been a fan of St. Ives so when I saw this at our local grocery, I didn’t hesitate. This one smells so good and it’s not as abrasive compared to the other ones that I’ve tried from the same brand. It’s a good exfoliating product but I only use it two to three times a week because it can be a bit too drying if used daily.
Etude House My Beauty Tool Facial Cleansing Brush – I don’t know how many of these facial brushes I own already. All from different brands, different sizes, types, etc. However, prior to owning this one, I thought all of them were the same. But this one’s a lot more gentler for some reason. I use this with my Safeguard facial cleanser.
Banila Co. Clean it Zero Cleansing Balm – This one saves me time in removing my makeup especially if I’m wearing layers and layers of them. Also a lifesaver when I’m swatching lip products. I reviewed this one here just in case you’re interested.
Iope Air Cusion XP – A lot of beauty gurus have been raving about this cushion fondie and finally, Althea Philippines can now ship this directly to our doors. This cushion foundation covers like no other cushion fondie does, and it also gives that beautiful youthful glow. I’ll be reviewing this soon so stay tuned.
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Orange Concealer – My dark under eye circles are getting worse so I asked my blogger friends for their recommendations and Genzel suggested this one. It does work wonders, however, I prefer to mix it with a tiny bit of a skin tone concealer because the orange shade can be a bit too strong for my taste.
Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Foundation – I lah-ove the coverage and finish of this one. My skin looks so healthy and glowy when I use this one and the coverage is indeed promising.
Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray – I finally get the hype about this product. This can indeed extend the longevity of my makeup without making it look too dry or flat. I am definitely impressed.
Chanel Rose Initiale Joues Contraste – This has been my go to blush ever since I got it. I was browsing at the Chanel store at Vivocity when I asked the sales rep what their best sellers are and she recommended me this one. This is more of a peachy pink blush with tiny specs of gold. It’s really beautiful.
Pink Sugar Cosmetics Sweet Cheeks HD Blush in ‘Sin City’ – This is a beautiful yet subtle highlighter ideal for those who would like to try highlighters but are not into “strobing” yet. It definitely gives an oomph to your usual makeup look.
L’oreal Super Liner Gel Intenza – If you have been reading my blog then you’ll know that I am a liquid eyeliner kind of girl. But lately, my eyes have been watering like crazy. I decided to browse and see what gel liners have the best longevity. I’ve tried a few but most of them smudge like crazy and they dry within just a few weeks. I decided to buy this one from BeautyMNL because a lot of bloggers have been raving about it and true to its claim, it’s indeed creamy, pigmented and it stays on for a long time.
Majolica Majorca Linehunter – I was also looking for a liquid eyeliner since I ran out of one and I was looking for a cheaper alternative to my K-Palette so I got this. It also last a decent amount of time and I love the tip. It’s a bit finer than K-Palette.
LA Splash Lip Couture in ‘Latte Confessions’ – It’s more of an MLBB shade only it’s not because it’s super matte. I like using this when I run errands or when I spend time with my friends and family because I don’t need to retouch often.
Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Mysterieuse – THIS is an MLBB shade. I like using this when I want to take a break with all of the liquid matte lippies that I’ve been using. It’s very moisturizing it feels very lightweight. Though longevity may bean issue, it’s still my fave.
Tangle Teezer – I have been using this for years and this brush survived many ‘arbors or akin na lang…’. My niece really liked this but for the life of me, I can’t give this one up. Especially when I had my hair bleached. If you are having a hard time brushing/combing your hair, and you think a wide toothed comb is not enough, you might want to invest to this one. I bought this for Php 700+. Quite pricey, I know but it’s definitely worth it.
So those are all of my favorites for the month of February. How about you? What are your favorite products last month? Have you tried any of these? Let me know! I would love to hear your thoughts
