February Favorites!

I haven't done a monthly favorites in such a long time. I like to really wait until I love a handful of things so much, my excessive use of them makes me have to write a post like this! lol Rest assured, if a product is featured in this post, it is something that I am bursting at the seams waiting to share with you! Maybe we are loving the same things at the tell me :)

Here we go:


L'Oreal Ever Strong Sulfate-Free Reconstruct Conditioner

  • Smells AMAZING! 
  • Nice thick consistency that coats your strands fully for great results
  • Leaves hair soft and gives you that great tingly minty feeling on your scalp upon use :)
  • Sulfate-free

One n Only Argan Oil
  • Great price point compared to some other argan oil treatments on the market at around $10.00
  • Smells absolutely fabulous
  • Doesn't leave hair greasy
  • Leaves hair soft and shiny
Origins VitaZing
  • Wonderful moisturizer with a slight tint 
  • No irritating fragrance
  • Priced at $35 (not too bad for a higher end moisturizer) 
  • Gives skin that healthy glow   

MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus
  • This stuff has lasted me FOREVER! 
  • I not only use this as a face powder on occasion but also a transition color when blending eyeshadows which it works wonderful for!

Buck Eyeshadow from the UD Naked Palette, Stila Kajal Eyeliner in Onyx, MAC Typographic Eyeshadow

  • I tweeted about nailing the perfect every time smokey eye and these are the products that made that possible for me. 
  • Stila Kajal eyeliners are all so creamy and super blendable
  • MAC Typographic is the perfect charcoal gray that one would desire when doing a smokey eye
  • Buck is my perfect shade for blending as a transition color in this look (for those with lighter skin tone, naked may work better!)

Revlon Lipbutter in Cotton Candy
  • Glides on smoothly and moisturizes well
  • Perfect wash of light pink color with a slight sheen to make the lips look "awake" :)

Do we share any of the same favorites?



  1. Hi. I have been wanting to try the Argan oil. Does it help with damaged hair? Lipbutters are amazing, and the Cotton Candy looks so fun.

    1. Hey Nika, yes aren't the lipbutters the best?! :) As far as the Argan Oil, I don't have super damaged hair so I don't know the legnths it will go to repair damaged hair, BUT I do have dry ends sometimes and when I add the tiniest amount of this it seems to hydrate those babies right up :) Hope this helps! xox

  2. I've heard so many great things about the Mac Mineralized Skin Finish, I am thinking of purchasing now that you did this review lol I always feel like so many people on youtube over hype beauty products then when I spend the money on the product I realize I could have done without lol
