This months favourites are products that I’ve had for a while (minus the Lancome Mascara) and I’ve really realized how much I love them this past month. These products are slowly becoming some of my staples in my makeup collection and what’s even better is that most of them are all from the drugstore! Yay for saving money….. and then going out and buying more makeup (anyone else with this problem?). Let me know any products that you guys have loved in the month of February! I always love hearing about new products!
Sonia Kashuk Brush: This brush was from their Fall Anniversary set. I’ve had it for a while now, but have only really started using it this past month. It’s become my favourite brush to apply my bronzer and use for a light contour. I’m still getting used to contouring and only do it on days where I want a full face of makeup. This brush has been great for learning and slowly easing in to contouring. I apply my bronzer with it in a line on the hollows of my cheeks (suck in your cheeks and you can see the natural line from your ear to mouth). I then use a smaller brush to blend it out. It’s been working pretty well and I love that it gives a more natural look.
Lancome Mascara: Ok, I might have mentioned this before, but I’m a bit of a mascara snob. I always think I like to try new mascaras and will reach for new samples or testers. However, after trying them a few times I always regret purchasing them and go back to my tried and true CoverGirl Mascara (my holy grail). So, of course when I had heard so much about this Lancome mascara I just had to give it a shot. At first I was honestly not impressed and again went back to my CoverGirl mascara. However, I made myself try it again and guys I think I might have found a new favourite. This mascara is amazing, it makes your lashes longer and gives them crazy volume. I’m still on the fence if it’s worth the $40 or so dollars for it, so I’ll get back to you on that!
CoverGirl Lipstick: I honestly don’t even remember when I bought this lipstick… I think sometime in the fall? But I rediscovered it this month and have been loving it. It has such a great colour and I love that I can make it really strong or just dab it on my lips a few times for a light stained look.
Milani Blush: This is another product I’ve been using for the past few months but never knew how I really felt about it. However, I was applying it the other day and realized just how much I love it. I’ve been really loving more purple toned makeup colours this winter, and this blush gives off an amazing plum colour. It also has some bronzer and highlight to it, which is perfect for winter since my skin needs all the colour it can get! (If you’re in Canada and looking for Milani products, I found mine at the Superstore)
