February Beauty Favorites

Monthly Favorites time! I'm going to do the opposite of the usual cliché and say that this month felt long. Ironically enough seeing as it's the shortest month of the year. Maybe it's because I'm so excited about things coming up in the Spring, or maybe because I'm just ready for some warm weather! Anyways, I'm welcoming March (and this round up) with open arms!

Diorskin Nude BB Crème & Forever Fluid* : The Nude BB Crème was part of my "January Beauty Haul" (linked HERE) and the Forever Fluid came my way towards the end of the month, and both rank high on my list. Dior bases are nothing short of fantastic. They are long-lasting, give a flawless finish, and both create luminous bases in different ways. The BB Crème is hydrating, dewy, lightweight, and evens out skin tone beautifully. The Forever Fluid is a luminous matte that has a bit more coverage, but still feels lightweight.

MAC Lipstick 'Kinda Sexy' : This is a gorgeous peachy nude that is matte but not flat or super dry. The best way I've seen this shade described (and I agree) is an 'Angelina Jolie nude'. This shade looks gorgeous when paired with a deeper liner and even a gloss over top. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz : I went a few months without a Brow Wiz and missed it so much. It's funny how you branch out and other items are good, but once you get an old favorite back in your life you realize just how amazing that original product is. I have fuller brows to begin with, so I love the smaller nib that the Brow Wiz has. It allows me to go in and fill small gaps and be precise with my application.

Sephora Pro AirBrush #55 : Another purchase from my January haul that was a total success. I love that this is a fluffier buffing brush than other's I have used in the past. Since it isn't quite so dense, it gives a lighter (yet still flawless finish). This helps to keep makeup from looking caked on, but it still has a very airbrush finish.

Dior Addict Lip Glow Liner* : Not only is the packaging on this product stunning, the product inside is fantastic too. It's not a traditional liner, but still unique and great in it's own way. The formula is super creamy and the color adjusted to your lips to create the perfect pink shade. I love wearing this on it's own all over the lips and want to snag one of the Dior balms or glosses to pair with it too!

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder 'Iridescent'* : I did a full review on this highlighter a while back (linked HERE) and it has consistently stayed in my rotation since then. It is a gorgeous soft highlight that stands out on the cheek bones, yet still looks natural. The shade Iridescent is a gorgeous pink that gives off a healthy glow.

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize 'Marie Antoinette' : Again from my January Haul this product has been a perfect one to use on mornings when quick and easy is the name of the game. I apply this with my fingers as a wash of color all over my lid. It blends out easily and looks perfect paired with jet black liquid liner or on it's own.
