February Favorites.

Finally a monthly favorites post! I haven't done one in a while because to be honest I didn't have any favorite products to show you. I haven't been wearing make up that often and since I got some new products within the past month I wanted to start using them for a while and decide which ones I like the most and include them in my February favorites.
 Benefit It's Potent! Eye Cream
If there's only one skincare item that I've been loving a lot these past few months it's definitely the It's Potent eye cream from Benefit! It's hard for me to find the best eye cream, it has to be moisturizing but not too greasy because my concealer will crease like crazy, and I don't like thinner eye creams because they do not moisturize my undereye area at all. This one has just the right texture, not too thin and not too thick, it moisturizes really well without being heavy and the concealer just sticks on top really well.
Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream
I don't know why but I was never into BB creams, lately I'm just sick of using foundation as a base whenever I want to do my make up, it's just too much for an everyday look to go and run some errands or just go for shopping, and that's why I got this BB cream in the first place. It's not the perfect one for sure because I do get oily really quick but I just love how fresh my face looks with this on, and I don't mind if I need to blot my face a few more times throught the day.

Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer
A primer is also a product that I rarely use, because the majority of the ones that I've tried in the past had that silicone texture which after a few hours made me look even more oily. This one has a totally different texture, it's like a moisturizer that dries up on my face really quick. It gives a fresh luminous look that you notice only after you put your make up on, and the best part is that it doesn't make me oily, even though it says that it's for dry and normal skintypes, it's definitely better than Benefit's Porefessional when it comes to oil control.
Benefit Dallas
I rediscovered Dallas in my make up stash recently and I wanted to start using it as a bronzer again. It's not the typical brown or peachy shade of bronzer, it has rose undertones, and because of that I skip blush sometimes and I only wear this. The quality of this powder is just perfect, it's so finely milled and highly pigmented and that's the main reason why I wanna try Hoola sometime in the future.
Maybelline Babylips Peach Kiss
Recently I went to a Maybelline event for the launch of their new products here in Greece, including the very famous Babylips and I was very happy that they gave us all six of them to try out. The one that I instantly fell in love with is the Peach Kiss one, as I do with every single peachy lipstick or lipgloss or balm! It's not the most moisturizing lip balm I've ever tried, they're not creamy and waxy they're more glossy, for sure they cannot beat my beloved Liposan (Nivea at other countries) but the peachy taste and the light beige glossy shade it gives on my lips are the two things that I love with this one.

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee
I haven't really been wearing the NYX Butter Glosses at all since I got them, mainly because the Mega Shine lipgloss in Beige stole my heart, it's the only lipgloss that I've been wearing for months. But I wanted to start using the Butter Glosses too so I saved the Apple Strudel which is a summerish color for the spring and summer and now I use the Creme Brulee. It's a beautiful kind of nudish beige-pink shade, if that shade decription makes any sense to you, it has mauve undertones but it's not cool toned, it's a neutral shade that goes with every make up look. Also it makes my lips look really plump and full with no shimmers in, my kind of perfect lip gloss!

Non Beauty Favorites
Sleepy Hollow is a new tv series, I watched the whole Season 1 in just a few days, well it's only 13 episodes, but anyway it's actually really good! At first I refused to watch it, I thought it would be a silly "Sleepy Hollow" knock off (you know the 1999 movie with Johnny Depp) but it has nothing to do with that one, it has its own unique plot which gets better and better in every single episode! If you like supernatural tv series you should definitely watch it!

Lately I've been obsessed with Drop Dead Diva, I watched all 5 seasons within a month and I wonder why I never watched this show before! It's so cute and funny, very well written and Jane is such a goddess! I read that the upcoming 6th season will be the last one and if that's true then I will be really sad, because I think that it's the perfect summer tv show, I hope that it's not true.

And for my music favorite, it's of course Beyonce's new self-titled album! It was such an amazing surprise when she released her album in December out of nowhere, with no promo, and each song comes with a video. The songs that I love the most are Partition, Drunk In Love, XO and Flawless. Out of all her five albums I think this one is my second favourite after her first one, which will always will be my top one. And if you haven't heard this album yet, what are you doing with your life? Just go and do it!

So these were all my favorites from the previous months. Have you tried any of the products that I mentioned? Did you like them? I wanna know!


  1. Χρησιμοποιώ κι εγώ την κρέμα ματιών αυτή την περίοδο μόνο και μόνο επειδή ήταν σ'ένα σετάκι της Benefit κι είχα και μία περιέργεια να τη δοκιμάσω. Μ'αρέσει αρκετά, αλλά ίσως με κέρδισε και η συσκευασία της, δεν έχω καταλήξει ακόμα. Το Peach Kiss μ'αρέσει για τον ίδιο ακριβώς λόγο, όπως και η ΒΒ! Πολύ ενδιαφέροντα αγαπημένα!

    1. Σ'ευχαριστω πολυ Μαριαννα! Πραγματι εχει πανεμορφη συσκευασια, οπως ολη τους η skincare σειρα.
