March is here, so it's time to look back at the main February favorites.
I love to look at other peoples previous months favorites so I finally decided to hop on the bandwagon and join the party.
Dove Pure Care Dry Oil has basically been a favorite ever since I got it at the end of last year. If you remember I talked about it in the end of January. If I had done the January favorites then it would have been in it as well. I guess this means I have to find a new hair product to test and talk about this month. Any recommendations? This little H&M notebook has been my pal for the past month and a half, helping me stay organised and store ideas that pop in my head. I guess having a notebook also makes me a little bit sentimental, with everything being mostly digital nowadays. What joy is there to have a digital notebook if you can't enjoy it's beautiful cover and the way how the paper feels under your fingers? You can't really enjoy so much how the app's logo looks like (but there probably are some who do). Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush was a rediscovered gem that was just collecting dust in my brush holder. It was kind of left behind after purchased, because I mostly used the buffing, contour and pointed foundation brush from the core collection kit. But after spending a whole afternoon going through Lisas Eldridges youtube videos I wanted to change up a bit how I do my makeup. So now, thanks to Lisa, I start with this brush and then blend it all with the buffing brush. But as I've seen everyone raving about the Beauty Blender that is finally available here in Latvia I kind of want to get it and try it as well. Though I'm having a dilemma - Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge or Beauty Blender? I think I may have forgotten to talk about Maybelline Master Sleek Brow before (how?). It's a fantastic product. On lazy days I just use it by going through my brows to make them look more presentable or go over the brows after I have filled them in so they stay put. I got mine on ASOS, because unfortunately you can't get it in Latvia. So if you're planning to order something from ASOS, pop this little bad boy in your bag before checkout, because it really is a great product. You are probably already tired of seeing the YSL Black Opium fragrance, because it is basically everywhere (I'm sorry for making you see, read about it again)! But I am so happy that I was one of the lucky ladies that got it as a gift on the day when it hit the stores, because I really do enjoy the scent and I've been using it since I got it. If you want, you can read more about it here. A little switch up also happened in the lipstick department after I picked up the Rimmel Kate lipstick in shade 102 - Rossetto/Rouge A Levres. I love my MAC's Ruby Woo to bits, but I wanted something a bit more light and spring like. Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo eyeshadow in 35 - On and on Bronze is an old favorite. I got it last year and with how much I've used it and how much still is in the tin (there is a long way till hitting the pan), I think I'll be using it this whole year as well. It's just a great formula that is easy to apply, blend and stays where it should stay. I really need to pick some other shades until they are still in stores.
