One of the funnest things to participate in when you have a Beauty Vlog is a monthly favorites video. This is where I get to talk about my favorite beauty products for the month and also any products I may regret purchasing. Sometimes mine won’t strictly be beauty products, I might show you a new phone case I bought and really like. It can pretty much be any product that is a current fav, but I do generally like to stick to beauty products for mine.
Here are my favorite beauty products for the month of February 2012 (all items are pictured above):
The Republic of Pink Bliss body mist in Perfect Pomegranate: This is seriously one of the best smelling body sprays I have every encountered. The scent is flirty and fresh- perfect for the upcoming Spring and Summer months! My only gripe is that lasting power, I would say the scent lasts no more than 2 hours if i’m lucky
CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara: Definitely a favorite mascara to keep around. Although it was a little pricier than most drug-store brand mascaras, it achieves the quality of many high end mascaras. The bristles on the brush are similar to that of Urban Decays Skyscraper mascara. I’d say it works just as well or even better.
Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette: Although I’ve already done a vlog review and written an article review on this palette, it IS a current favorite, so I mentioned it again. Great colors and great quality shadows. I haven’t purchased a palette this nice in a while. The colors are PERFECT for spring.
Retreat Shea Butter and Honey Lip Butter: A great find at my local Fresh N Easy store. I just happened to walk by and see this sitting on the shelf, and I liked the “natural” look it had. Simple look, but a really good lip butter. I use it to prime my lips for lipstick and lipgloss and I also like to wear it by itself to give my lips a light sheen.
L’Occitane Hand Cream: Typically I don’t use hand creams. I can’t stand any type of greasy residue on my hands so I don’t generally seek out lotions for them. I just happened to sample this at Sephora and was really impressed. It leaves a light and soft feel to my hands. It’s not greasy or wet feeling and it has a very light scent. Nothing too distracting.
Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer: To put it simply- this is a really nice lip primer. I use this to avoid “eraser marks” on my lips after applying lipstick and it’s also a nice “go between” when wearing lipgloss (it helps my lips feel less sticky from the gloss). Lip Insurance definitely does it’s job extending the life of lip products.
Lorac TANtilizer Baked Bronzer: Amazingly enough, this was a BirchBox item. Every other month I tend to get a product that I really love from BirchBox (more on that in another article, another day). One month, it was this and I have re-fallen in love with it this February. It has a really nice “vanilla sheen” to it and is very long lasting… I would definitely say this is a must have for Spring and Summer.
I’m always excited to hear what everyone else’s favorites are, comment and let me know!
