February Favorites.


It took me a few days to figure out what to include in my favorites this time, because honestly I didn't wear that much make up within February, so it was hard for me too choose what products to show you guys. Most of them are rediscoveries from my make up stash, so I apologize for the lack of variety in my favorites post this time. But anyway let's see what I loved the most last month:


Mac ProLongwear Concealer NC20
I know that in my last haul post I mentioned that I wasn't quite sure if I liked this product or not, after trying to apply it with many different ways, I figured out that it's quite good. Yes it's still a little dry for my undereye area, but I use an eyecream anyway, and yes I should have gone for the NW20 shade instead but I like its liquid texture a lot and the coverage is also really good, better than Seventeen's Ideal Cover and almost as good as the Mac Studio Finish one.

Sigma P82 Precision Round Brush
This is the brush I found out that works the best with the Mac ProLongwear concealer. I tried applying it with different brushes such as Mac 217 and Sigma P86 Precision Tapered, which is pointy, but both didn't work as good as the P82. It's rounded and somehow it does the exact same job as fingers do, but with more precision, and blends the product into the skin way better than fingers do. What I like to do is first dot the concealer under my eyes with my fingertips and then use the P82 brush to blend it.


from the left top row clockwise: Arena, Time & Space, Bronze and Cork.


Mac Arena, Time & Space, Cork and Bronze Eyeshadows
These are the 4 eyeshadows I used the most last month, they are my "safe" eyeshadows when I have no clue whith what eye look should I go one day, I always reach for these 4. I use Arena all over the lids, Time & Space on the middle of my lids, Cork on the crease and Bronze on the outer V and on my lower lashlines. I bought all 4 of them seperately, and except Time & Space the rest of them are in Mac's permanent line.



Korres Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Shade 1
Well when it comes to my brows I go through phases, sometimes I want them to be very light colored and as natural as possible so that's when I use Mac's Lingering or Mac's Omega eyeshadow for an even more natural look. Other times I prefer them to be a little more bold, that's when I use this brow pencil from Korres. It's a medium cool toned brown not too dark, but it's darker than Lingering, and with a soft formula. What I love the most in this pencil is that it has no red tones in and it's not too ashy either like Omega eyeshadow.



Mac Fleurry Blush
I know I've mentioned this blush before, too many times actually, but I can't help it, I love it so much! It's the perfect peachy pink blush that goes with any make up look,it's the safe choice .Until now I haven't found a blush with a similar shade, from any brand, too bad it was limited edition!



Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture #6 Rose Bergamasque
This is one of my HG lipsticks but I've only mentioned it once, many months ago, and that's because I haven't used it for quite sometime. It was about time to start using it again, because it's the most perfect warm pink shade I've found so far. This and Mac's Way To Love are my HG pinks, but Way To Love it's a little more pink and cool toned where Rose Bergamasque has more peach in, but it's still pink on my lips. The Pur Couture lipsticks have an amazing formula, they glide on lips really well but they're not glossy, they have a very lightweight texture that is something between satin and glossy, and that's what makes them unique! Here's a swatch for you:

 Here it looks more peachy than pink, but it's just the lighting and my pale hand that makes it look like that, on my lips it's definitely more pink.



Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Mask
You propably know already how much I love the Korres Pomegranate Scrub, I've talked about it so many times, last month I rediscovered that I also own the mask but I've totally forgot about it, so I gave it a chance. I have to say that it's a very good cleansing mask, especially for blackheads. I'm using the Vichy Normaderm 3 in 1 one that I got in December but I haven't notice any difference on my skin or my pores. I used the Korres one twice within a week and I already saw a small difference on my blackheads, especially on my nose. My only complain in that Korres keep selling all their masks and scrubs in small 16 ml packages, please Korres make them in biggers packages, I love them so so much!




Non Beauty Favorites



I totally forgot to mention non beauty favorites in my last monthy favorites post so I'm doing it this time! The past few months most TV shows have really dissapointed me, I don't know why but their plots are just getting so boring. I didn't really like the first half of Pretty Little Liar's third season, except the few last episodes, but now I'm quite enjoying it. I like the second half way more and I like the fact that they decided to make Spencer a little more dark and intresting character, because I used to find her the most boring one. And it's weird because I'm pretty sure that the majority of the people who watch the show did not like Spencer's change, but oh well it's just my personal opinion.


This is it!! This is my number one obsession for over 4 months now. I have my tumblr page for a year but the obsession became worst since last fall. If you don't know what tumblr is and you're just starting exploring it, I have to warn you that is really really addictive, so please be careful!
But if you do have a tumblr page, you can follow me here , I'd be more than happy to follow you back, and become really good tumblr friends!







Well these were my favorites for last month, I hope I didn't bore you that much! 
And if you've tried any of the products I mentioned here let me know if you like them!
