My February Beauty Favorites!


Most Loved Beauty Products February 2013

I haven’t done a monthly favorite in ages and I feel like I have so many products to talk about with so little time! I used so many different products throughout February, but I wanted to keep the list short and sweet. All of the products in this post have been used and loved throughout the whole month of February. Reviews will be up shortly for several of the products!

Physicians Formula Super BB Cream – $15

A moisturizer, foundation and SPF all wrapped up in one product. I honestly didn’t have high expectations for this product but I seriously love it. It’s been my go-to makeup every day for my “no makeup” makeup days and I even like it so much that I’ve been wearing it on nights out. The coverage is great for a BB cream and it makes my skin look like my skin but better!

YSL Multi-Action Concealer – $35

Two words when I first tried this. HELL. YES. This concealer is amazing and I don’t think it gets the proper attention it deserves. This is by far the silkiest concealer stick I’ve ever tried and it glides on the skin like butter. (I know some of you hate that analogy, but it’s seriously smooth – like a rouge volupte in concealer form.) It provides full coverage while remaining lightweight.

NARS Oasis Blush – $29

The moment I thought I didn’t need another Nars Blush, I discovered this beauty. It’s a really pretty rosy pink with a hint of plum and sparkles. Somewhat similar to Nars Sin, but rosier. Although it looks scary sparkly in the pan, they thankfully play a disappearing act once applied to the cheeks. I’ve been wearing this just about every day. Love!


MAC Please Me Lipstick – $15

This doesn’t really look appealing in the tube, but it’s a really great natural medium pink. When I’m tan, it gives off more of a bubble gum pink color, but when I’m not tan, it shows up a little darker and more natural. I love wearing this when I want my lips to look a little fuller.

Burt’s Bee’s Lip Balm – $3

I rarely ever venture out and purchase lip balms because none of them are ever moisturizing enough for my lips, but I’ve been loving Burt’s Bee’s Lip Balm. I apply it generously to my lips throughout the day and they stay super soft and hydrated.

MAC NC15/NW20 Chromagraphic Pencil – $16

I’ve been loving this fleshtone colored pencil to define my eyebrows and cupids bow, as well as my waterline to brighten and open up my eyes.

MAC Soar Lip Pencil – $15

A great plummy pink shade for pairing with pink lipsticks and glosses. I’ve been using it almost every day!

Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream – $18

I’ve started a new skincare regimen using all Mario Badescu products and the hyaluronic eye cream has been one of my favorites. I was really surprised to see the low review on Makeupalley (2.9/5 w/ 35% repurchase rate), but I guess it just goes to show that if a product doesn’t work for one, it doesn’t mean that it won’t work for another. I’ve been using this cream every night and I love the creaminess of it and how rejuvenated it makes my under eyes look. 

Mario Badescu Glycolic Cleanser – $15

This is a favorite among many, and I can completely see why. The more I’m using it, the clearer my skin has been looking and any blemish scars (from popping my pimples.. bad habit) are almost completely faded.

St. Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Med/Dark – $30

I recently rediscovered this past favorite of mine and I’m in love all over again. I’ve been applying this mostly on my arms and hands (no one is seeing my pale legs in the winter) and I love the color it gives me. It’s definitely not as orange as Jergens, and holds up really well throughout the week without looking patchy.

  3. I can see just how creamy the concealer is! Does it crease after you set it though, since it is so creamy? & also, have you tried any other bb creams (and if you have how does the physician's formula one compare?)
