February 2019 Lifestyle Favorites

Yesterday I talked all about my favorites from the month of February, those were all of my beauty related ones and like every month I am going to use this day to talk about all of the other odds and ends that I have been loving during the month of February. And I tried to keep a list of the things that I wanted to talk about this month so hopefully, this will be less scattershot than usual.

November 2018 Favorites + Face

November 2018 favorites (2)

On the second day of Blogmas, my true love gave to me a bunch of favorites! I am terribly sorry if that song gets stuck in your head, it’s been stuck in mine along with a bunch of other Christmas songs. When it comes down to it my head is really just all Christmas songs cycling through over and over, I’m sure this will be how it is for the rest of the month. But anyway, last month I had some unexciting favorites and this month I don’t have very many exciting things to talk about but I do have some new things, so let’s dive right on in.

For your enjoyment here is a fun and festive playlist you can listen to while reading blogmas.

June 2018 Favorites + Face

It’s time for another monthly favorites post, June has gone and July has come, which is still so strange to think about, before I know it summer will be over and I will have to start wearing pants again, ah my least favorite time. Anyway, last months favorites were a little bit boring and I think this month are even more, but I really didn’t wear makeup a whole bunch this month. Let’s jump right into the few picks that I really did love.

March 2018 Favorites + Face

March 2018

April is here, I really hate April Fools Day, anyone else here hate it too? I just don’t like being messed with or people trying to play pranks on me. I’m just so glad that it falls on Sunday this year which means I don’t have to worry about co-workers messing with me this year. Anyway, the month of March is over which means that it is time to start doing monthly posts and to kick this month off I am doing my monthly favorites and face, last month was pretty boring but I think this month was a little more interesting.

December 2017 Favorites + Face

December 2017Favorites + Face.jpg

I know, this may start to get repetitive, which I said in my last post, but I wanted to talk about my favorites for the month of December because I had a few and not all of them made it into my yearly favorites. My yearly favorites was more of a list of things that I constantly went to throughout the whole year and were just staple products, whereas my monthly posts are a little bit of that but also a lot of fun things that I have been enjoying for a month or so, so I thought it was perfectly acceptable and okay to write about my monthly favorites as well.

November 2017 Favorites & Face

november2017favsface

If you read my last post then you know I am excited about the Holiday season and the month of December, but I am still trying to give November its fair share of time in the spotlight, just like I do with every other month. So, that means it is time for my November Favorites and Face post, where I talk about all the things that I’ve been loving during the month of November. I have a few of the same favorites this month as I did last month, but I still want to chat about them a bit so let’s get into looking at some great products.

October 2017 Favorites & Face

OctoberFavorites

It’s November, Happy November! I am excited about this month because it means it’s finally acceptable for me to talk about Christmas, depending on who you ask they might say it’s not but everyone around me says it is and I am excited about this. This month has gone by in the blink of an eye, it feels like just yesterday I was writing my September favorites and now it’s time for the October ones, so I guess we can just jump into it.

July 2017 Favorites + Face

July 2017 MonthlyFavorites & Face

The start of a new month means tons of posts about the last month are coming your way, and by tons, I mean four total, this being the second of the four. And today I am talking about my favorites from July, of course, so let’s not waste any time and just get into it.

20170729_160600

I know, this mix does look a little bit like last months, however, I did mix in some other things. I just had a few things that I have really been loving and just needed to be shoved in this month’s favorites too.

Mac Prep + Prime Fix+ – Yes, this is back once more, I am obsessed and I really don’t know what more to say about that. This is just something that I really love, find myself reaching for a ton and just keep shoving in all the blog posts. It’s going to be a sad day when this runs out, although I do have this product in another scent so I guess it won’t be so bad.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe – I’ve never really been super into brow products, mostly because I have pretty nice brows naturally and I’m not really a big fan of the ‘Instagram’ brow. When I am feeling in the mood for just a little bit more that’s when I whip this guy out, it’s really quite natural and easy to use, I think it adds a little something to my eyebrows without making them overwhelmingly obnoxious. Because of that, this has been something I’ve been reaching for a lot this month.

Physicians Formula 2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black – This is a huge favorite of mine because this is the type of eyeliner that changed my eyeliner game and really made it super easy for me to do, the one that did it for me was the Kat Von D one but this one is almost the exact thing I feel like. The tip is like a really pointed, exact brush and that’s what I love about it, it’s really precise and this is really black.

City Color Contour On The Go Palette – This is one of the most surprising products that I’ve ever tried, meaning I picked this up at a five below and expected nothing out of it, but it’s turned into something that I frequently find myself using and at this point almost exclusively used for contour. I mix the bottom two right shades and it’s just a perfect mix for me, so I’m a huge fan of this, especially seeing as it was five dollars.

Deva Curl Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip – Something that may seem a little bit strange if you’ve been here a while, I rarely talk about hair products, mostly because I don’t really fuss with my hair ever but I did get this in a travel set that I got for when I went to Florida and I love it! In fact I’, e already been through another travel size of this product and am really considering purchasing the full size. I like this because I think it makes my hair a little bit more manageable and I also like it because I feel like it makes my hair look a lot wavier than it would on its own, which is a huge plus for me.

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Noir – This is here because this is the black eyeliner I use to tight line, and sometimes in the waterline but that’s far less often. I use this because I find that it doesn’t really budge in the eye area like some eyeliners do, if my eyes get a little water I don’t really notice any transfer and that’s a fantastic thing if you ask me.

Derma Blend Loose Powder – This is really surprising to me, loose powder seems to be a thing that everyone is using and that everyone loves, but I never expected to even like one let alone love one like I do this one. I enjoy this one so much that I am actually debating picking up the full size once I run out of this little sample, which will be very soon, but I’m not one hundred percent sure yet. Until then I plan on enjoying this powder while I have it.

 

I feel like this is a pretty standard thing that keeps happening, I have a really consistent base for the month to share but the eye looks are never consistent enough for me to be like, yup, that’s the eye look the represents the month of ___. So, because of that, I’m thinking I might start just doing a feature look of the month, I’m not sure though but I guess I have a month to decide. This month I chose to do this look because I’ve been testing out some new palettes and have been using a lot of colors this month.

June 2017 Favorites + Face

June 2017 Monthly Favoritesand Face

This is my last monthly post, my monthly favorites, and face for the month of June. I kept it a little simple this month and kept it to the simple things that I loved this month, which means that I mostly focused on face products this month because I was really about a good base this month. Now, let’s jump into talking about my favorites for June.

20170624_141850

Mac Fix + Coconut. I am obsessed with this stuff and I think that’s probably clear by now because I talk about this way too much, but I just really love this stuff! The light smell of coconut is so refreshing combined with the fact that it really tones down the look of powder on the face, I just really enjoy this stuff.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation in Porcelain. I posted a review of this a couple of weeks ago and by that review, you can probably tell that I love this foundation! This is a really amazing summer foundation I think, it’s light weight, looks fantastic on the skin and is just overall a great foundation.

City Color Contour Palette On The Go. This is something that I recently spoke about in my Five Below Finds posts, it was probably the star of that post and something that has made it’s way into my favorites post, which says something I think. This is completely affordable, has a little range of shades and the powder just feels really nice. I find this easy to work with and that it looks great on the skin, so I’m a big fan of this and it was really surprising.

Tarte Shape Tape in Fair is something that is well loved pretty much everywhere on social media and I can completely understand why this is a really thick and has high coverage, which is something that I actually find myself enjoying a lot. There is completely a reason why this is hyped up.

Buxom Full On Lip Cream in White Russian. I have a mini of this and this is something that I am for sure going to get a full size of once I run out of this. This is another product that I think has a cult following on the social media and I can understand why these are fantastic lip glosses and this color is just so neutral and flattering.

Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor. This is a blue lipstick and it changes to the perfect mauvey kind of shade on the lips, it’s really sheer, glossy and super comfortable to wear. It doesn’t have a lot of lasting power on the lips but it’s really pretty and I just love putting on blue lipstick and it not actually being blue.

Dermablend Loose Setting Powder. This is something that is on my project pan list and as I’m using it I’m falling for it more, it’s a really finely milled powder, it sets my makeup amazingly and lasts all day long.

Now, on to the look I created using my monthly favorites and some other things. I went for an eye look that I’ve worn a couple times this month just because it seemed to work. To the list of products I used for this look.

Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation in Porcelain

Tarte Shape Tape in Fair

Dermablend Loose Setting Powder

City Color Contour Palette On The Go

Laura Geller Baked Blush-N-Brighten Blush in Pink Grapefruit

Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops in Morning Light

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir

Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner in In The Nude

Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Perversion

Pur Volume Vixen Mascara

Essence Make Me Brow in Soft Brown Brows

Mac Fix + Coconut

Lipstick Queen in Hello Sailor

And those are all of the products that I used for this look, a good mix of high end and low end and pretty much all of the products that were on my favorites list this month, so it’s a good look that represented the month of June I think.

What are your favorites from the month of June?
