It’s a short month and some of the items you’ll see in this list of beauty favorites started standing out in my collection a month before. The only reason I’m sharing these now and not in January because I wanted to make sure that these are actually the beauty products I’m using and loving almost every single day.
I featured this product times and times on the blog, but it’s so good that it’s worth repeating. Without the doubt, that’s the most unique and effective mascara I tried in a while — and for that reason only it deserves to top my February favorites list! The product provides a natural lengthening coverage while used on its own and it improves the performance of any other mascara you use underneath it.
I’m an OG lover or the brand’s Almond line, but lately, their Shea Butter line has stolen my heart. It’s so gentle and delicate to my skin — I also love it for the delicious scent and luxurious feel. Not to mention that my skin feels so much smoother and hydrated ever since I started using it—and it’s the middle of winter in New York!
My friend SJ told me the other day that in England there is a nail polish color guide created for queens and princesses and it lists a perfect nude. I totally understand that – and I can’t really imagine Queen Elizabeth rocking the hot red nail polish. Why I’m saying it because I think this shade of perfectly white undertone pink is my take on the royal nail polish shade. It’s so elegant and so pretty!
My skin has been reacting very positively on Vitamin C treatments and this lightweight cream is my absolute favorite at the moment. It gives you a nice skin tightening and radiance improving boost and works ideally underneath makeup. No wonder the cream is sold out almost everywhere — it’s so amazing!
I’m doing my brown by myself and great tools are important if I want to have a salon-style experience. Until recently I was thinking that Tweezerman tools are overpriced, but when I lost my old tweezers somewhere in Florida, I decided to give these a try and I was blown away. These tweezers perfectly catch even the smallest hair so making your own brows become easier than ever!
I was never truly addicted to a face primer until I tried this one. It has a slightly gooey consistency which helps the product to “catch” foundation in the best way possible. It also has all sort of skincare grade ingredients that ensure that your skin looks glowing and smooth. Combined with my all-time favorite Giorgio Armani Luminous silk foundation, this primer helps me to achieve the most glowing skin I’ve ever had!
I have a huge liquid lipstick collection, but somehow, I didn’t have any products in that beautiful mauve shade. I wore this lipstick so many times on Instagram and blog that at this point I think it doesn’t require any additional comments – it’s affordable, it’s comfortable on your lips (I mean, as comfy as liquid lipstick could go)—I just love it!
I started using this cleanser just a few weeks ago, but I’m already blown away. There is something shockingly amazing about this probiotic cleanser that leaves my skin incredibly smooth and nourished. I love that the product doesn’t leave an oily cast on my skin and balances my combo skin type.
I believe it’s the exact same formula that the brand had for a few years now but in the different packaging. If you are an OG reader you know that I’ve been wearing the 01 Nude Pop religiously – I believe I finished two full tubes of this shade that happens SO rarely to me. I don’t know why I never tried the red shade, but when I had a chance to do so I immediately fell in love with this gorgeous hue that feels so comfortable on my lips.
As you already know, I have a massive fragrance collection (and it expands every month!), but in February this charming scent has stolen my heart. It’s so feminine and delicious, but not too sweet – next time you are at the fragrance store, definitely check it out!
