February Favourites 2015

febfaves

Well, it is finally March, one step closer to Spring! I can actually hear birds singing outside my window! Here are some of my favourite products from February!

Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow: these eyeshadows are amazing, they have been my favourites for so long now. I have extremely oily eyelids, and before I found these, I was packing on high-end primers on my eyeslids and my eyeshadow would still only last half the day. With the color tattoo formula, I do not need any primer and they last all day! They also act as a great base for putting other powder eyeshadows on top of!

Katy Perry Royal Revolution: Remember the Killer Queen scent? Well this perfume still has some of the base notes that make it familiar, however this perfume is more fruity. I love the bottle and even though I do tend to reapply this perfume throughout the day it still makes the cut, due to its scent. It reminds me of blueberry for some reason. It is a comforting, fruity, sexy smell.

Stila ‘stay all day’ waterproof liquid eye liner: I am somewhat cursed in the sense that whenever I laugh, my eyes water… really badly. After going through almost all the drugstore waterproof eyeliners and not finding anything that worked, I turned to this eyeliner. This eyeliner goes on so smoothy and has a fantastic tip that doesn’t lose its shape! I love how thin I am able to make the line with this tip! I will admit, this product still smears away when my eyes water really badly, but when I don’t have that problem this eyeliner stays put all day! Its the best one I’ve tried so far.

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara: this mascara has long been my go-to and I recently purchased the water resistant formula. The combination of this brush and the formula is incredible, I never get clumps, just beautiful, fully defined, long lashes. This stuff stays all day and does not flake. I also love that this stuff is so easy to remove, unlike most water resistant/proof formulas. After using this mascara for 2 years, I still haven’t found anything better and I keep coming back to it. Its won me over completely.

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask: This is a great face mask, as it works well at cleaning out pores and leaves my skin soft. I also love how this mask dries quickly so I don’t have to sit around forever waiting to wash it off. I use this once every 2 weeks and follow up with a deep moisturizer. I also use this as a spot treatment for acne and it really helps!

Willow and Sage Magazine: This is my new favourite magazine, it is everything that I am about. You need this magazine if you like making your own natural beauty products and learning about natural health!

DIY Makeup Repair!

Eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers, any type of pressed powders are usually expensive however they are prone to breaking quite easily. I was almost at the point of throwing this palette away even though I loved the colours, so I decided to try the rubbing alcohol trick. This was actually a great, easy and cheap quick fix! […]
