February Beauty Favorites

Another month has come and gone. Do you know what that means? It is time for my FEBRUARY FAVORITES!!! This month I have decided to do 2 blog posts on this. One will be my beauty favorites and the other will be my non-beauty related favorites. If you can tell by the title, this post is about the beauty items I have been loving for the month of February.

This month I have fallen back in love with my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in the shade Light. I would say that this concealer is medium to full coverage. It doesn't look cakey when I build it up to get my desired level of coverage. The concealer is very creamy and doesn't settle into  my fine lines. I haven't found anything that can take the place of this concealer.

The next item I have been loving is a tool. I bought the e.l.f Studio Kabuki Face Brush at the end of January and I am so glad I did! I mentioned this brush in my e.l.f. haul and said it was one of the softest brushes I have. It really is. It applies my powder beautifully and evenly. So far, I  have not had any problems with the brush hairs falling out and getting all over my face. I really just love this brush and would recommend this to anyone looking for a inexpensive, good quality kabuki brush.

This next product I am going to mention is one I have had for quite some time. It is the Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer. This primer gets the job done. It makes my makeup last a few extra hours and it makes my skin smooth. I even notice a slight difference in my pores. It doesn't make them vanish, but it does make them look smaller. I do not know why I never used this much before, but I am glad I have started using it again!

I am pretty sure I have talked about this next item in a previous post. It is the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder in Translucent. I have been using this with my e.l.f Kabuki Brush and I have been loving it! It is the perfect setting powder for my foundation. This powder is good for those days when you do not want to wear any makeup but you also don't want to look shiny. The powder keeps the oil on my face at bay and I have been using it nonstop.

Eyeshadow  Quad in Chai Latte
The last beauty product I have been loving is my Maybelline Eyeshadow Quad in the shade Chai Latte. The sticker on the packaging says that it is new, but I'm not sure how true that is. The shadows so have some fallout and they aren't crazy pigmented, but that's okay with me. I really like the colors in the palette. There is a shimmery champagne shade, a shimmery copper shade, a matte light brown, and a dark brown with some glitter in it. The picture above shows swatches of all of the shadows in the quad. I am sorry that the quality of the picture isn't that great and it is kind of hard to see the champagne shade. I do like the over all look these shadows provide and they last all day with an eyeshadow primer.

I hope you liked reading about all of the products I have been loving this month. check out my other post on my non-beauty related favorites for the month of February! Feel free to tell me in the comments section below what products you have been loving this month!


  1. I've always wanted to try that Coty Airspun powder because I love the retro packaging. I never was sure what to use it for though. Maybe I will pick some up and give it a try as a finishing powder. And I saw those Mabelline concealers the other day and I really want one! Good to hear it lives up to the promise. I will have to give it a try too!

    1. You should definitely try the Coty Airspun powder. One thing I forgot to mention about it is it does have a strong smell. If you can ignore the smell, I am sure you will fall in love with it! The concealer is great! I believe Maybelline makes the best drugstore concealers.
