February Beauty Favorites

Hello loves! It's been too long since I've posted my monthly beauty favorites here on the blog. So I decided today would be the perfect time. Lately, I've been obsessed with a few products, some new and a couple that I shopped my stash for. I just wanted to take a moment to share some off the goodies I've been reaching for the most. Perhaps you're looking to try these beauty products yourself or you have tried them and could share more about them with me. Check them out below and be sure to tell me your thoughts in the comments!

rimmel eyeshadow palette purple reign

Rimmel HD Union Jack Palette in Purple Reign- If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I picked up this eyeshadow palette (along with True Union Jack) from Walgreens several weeks back for only $1.59! I wasn't familiar with the Rimmel HD Union Jack Palettes, but I believe these palettes had been out for quite some time. As a lover of purple shadows, I was elated to add this palette to my collection. The eyeshadows are rich and pigmented, and with primer, they are quite long-lasting. Have you seen this palette at your local drugstore? Have you tried it?

I've been using these three products on my eyes almost every day for the last month. Purchasing Wet n Wild Mega Impact Mascara has been a pleasant surprise! I got this mascara for around $3, as I searched for a quick-fix mascara that wouldn't break the bank. It gives my lashes just enough volume with one application and doesn't clump if I use two applications. I decided to try Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Nude some weeks back after Lisa raved about it. I use it on the waterline above my lower lashes and it doesn't budge! It gives my eyes a bright, awakened look when I venture out in the mornings, whether I'm fully alert or not. Rimmel Glam'Eyes Precise Design Liquid Eyeliner in Black Glamour is totally holding things down as far as my liquid eyeliners go. The applicator is precise and the application lasts until I remove it!

Rimmel Stay Matte Primer may be my favorite beauty product out of the bunch. I came across this item in passing recently when I was out looking for a new primer. On the hunt to find an affordable primer that would give my foundation a long-lasting matte finish, I scoured the shelves of my local drugstores. There was a display at Walgreens for Rimmel Stay Matte Primer along with a $1 off coupon. When I got to the register, the primer rang up for $1.99 with the coupon, making it the cheapest primer I've ever purchased. I won't say it's the best yet, as I haven't had the chance to wear it on warmer days. But it has kept my makeup matte and fresh lately. I'm in love! If you would like to see a more in-depth review of this product on the blog, let me know in the comments!

I've been using the Makeup Forever HD Kabuki Brush I got in the MUFE HD Complexion Starter Kit for some time now. I've been grabbing it more often here lately because it's so multi-purposeful! I've used it to apply my MUFE HD Microfinish Powder, e.l.f. HD Powder, and MAC Mineralized Skinfinish powders. I've used it to blend in blushes, highlighters, and to buff in powder foundations. The synthetic bristles of the brush are so soft and feel like luxury when smoothed around the face. It's small so it travels well in your purse or makeup bag while you're out and about too, unlike my other makeup brushes.

Wet n Wild Fergie Shimmer Palette in Carnaval in Rio is one of the prettiest face products I've ever purchased. I just love the warm glow this product gives my complextion. I've been looking for a bronzer to give my skin a nice sun-kissed glow and I was quite satisfied in finding this highly-pigmented shimmer palette. It's rather huge, so there's plenty of product for the low price of $5.99. Many have compared these palettes to the MAC Mineralized Skinfinish powders, but these shimmer palettes are pressed (not baked) and are larger. Have you tried this product or any other products from Fergie's Wet n Wild lines?

I switch up lip products quite often. I love trying different shades, finishes, and lipsticks. But these last few weeks, I've used these two products quite frequently! Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in Sweet Pink is a girly bubble-gum shade of pink that I'm loving so far. It applies as a smooth pigmented balm, and later fades into a stain. And I scored it for the low price of $2.99! I would recommend this balm stain to anyone who is a fan of the balm stains that have been circulating the beauty scene. This one is a steal as it is great quality for a low price. NARS Lipgloss in Orgasm is a reoccurring favorite of mine. Whenever I want to add a hint of shimmer and shine to any of my lippies, I apply a coat of this gloss over it. And who doesn't love adding a little shimmer to their life? I can't wait to add Turkish Delight to my collection. Have you tried either of these lippies?
