February 2012 Favorites

Going to try and not list 50-11 thangs for this month lol!


I've been loving Benefit's They're Real Mascara this month.  I think I mentioned last month that overall I have pretty decent eyelashes.  Also I can't get into the whole false eyelash thing.  This mascara is super black (super black? ha!) gives you length and volume.  I know some people get into the whole debate on "high end" mascaras since mascara is one beauty product that you should cycle out often.  If you like it and you're fine with your purchase then do you.  I have some drugstore mascaras that are favs as well.

Bare Escentuals Big & Bright Eye liner in Black Coffee has been my go to liner for the longest time.  I don't think this is available for individual purchase through BE's site which sucks!!  You might find it via a seller on Amazon or eBay.  I originally got this in one of their holiday sets and got a back up from another smaller set.  For me this is the perfect liner to go with any eye look.  Sometimes black can be too harsh and other times brown doesn't give you enough (if that makes sense).  I'm hoping that they make this one a permanent edition to their line. *shakes fist*

Bare Escentuals Drama Eyeshadow is just *sigh* lol!!  I can't remember how I stumbled upon this color but it's my go to when I don't know what to do.   Or if I can't be bothered doing a whole lot for an eye look.  Usually I wear it alone all over the lid and up into the crease, line my eyes with Black Coffee and call it a day.   It's a glimmer shadow but it's not loaded with glitter like some shadows.  I don't experience any fall out with it.  It's hard to describe but it's a cool brown bronzey color with a hint of pewter?? *scratches head*   I scooped it up from Ulta awhile ago when it was on sale for $6.  I got two.  Don't know why since it'll take forever to use just the one lol!!

I stumbled across the Smashbox Shadow Brush #32 when I was switching out my brushes.  I got in a set that came with other items.  It's no longer on Smashbox's website.  Amazon and eBay is the way to go if you're interested in it.  I haven't used this brush in a while.  I forgot how much I really liked it.  I usually don't do extreme eye looks.  So with this brush I can really do my whole eye look.  You can pack on and blend color with ease.


The Gloss D'Armani Lip in Rouge #405 is from the spring collection.  Crystalis007 reviewed this lip gloss on her blog and showed in a haul video on her youtube channel.  I was transfixed and haaaad to have it lol. I posted a comment to her blog when I received it (ordered it online) that the lip gloss whore in my swooned when I tried this gloss.  I think this is one of the second most expensive glosses I own.  I've never tried Armani lip glosses.  Love the color and the feel of this gloss on the lips.  It's long wearing which is strange to say for a lip gloss.  The color is a perfect everyday color.  It's a your lips but better color at least on me.  Lightweight tempted to get a back up.  I know terrible right?

MAC Marquise'd Lipstick is described a sheer pinky nude and it's just that.  This was a part of MAC's Wonder Woman collection.  A nice pink color when you do want to have a whole lot going on your lips.


MAC Amazon Princess Blush was also a part of the Wonder Woman collection.  I not a big MAC fan but I lost my mind when it came to this collection lol!  I pulled out this blush and have been loving how it looks.  It has two pink shades.  One medium pink and a deeper pinky purple shade.

Real Techniques Powder Brush is a super duper soft powder brush.  One peeve I have with the Real Techniques brand is that I wish more of their brushes were available for individual purchase versus the sets.  This brush is available on its for $9.99.  Other than that I love to use this brush with my Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder.  I've also used it with Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil.


I've been into Taupe/Taupe Purple and dark blue polishes this month.  I've been loving Essie Mink Muffs, Sephora by OPI Metro Chic, Zoya Pasha and Butter London Big Smoke.

This and That

I think I first tried Cascadian Farm Organic Granola Bars in one of those snack boxes you can buy on flights.  I got a $1 off coupon from Target's website and was like what the hey.  I've the Chocolate Chip and Vanilla kind.  They're quite tasty.

Carol's Daughter Goddess Flower "delicate floral scent of orchids and jasmine" on Carol's Daughter's website.   I can't describe it other than  a wonderful scent.  I the set that includes the shea souffle,  body wash and dry oil spray.  I also have the rollerball.  I've worn this for a good part of the month.

A song that I have been jamming to pretty has is Another Round by Fat Joe featuring Chris Brown.  I've been playing this song back to back to back *shimmys*

See not too bad this month :)  See you in March!
