February Favorites & Empties

It's the end of the month so it's time for another favorite and empties post! Like usual, I'll be starting off with my favorites.

My favorite products for February include the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation, TONYMOLY Cats Wink mascara, Urban Decay Feminine Palette, MAC Flatter Me Pearlmatte, OPI You Callin' Me a Lyre? polish, MAC Strawberry Malt Lipglass, and OPI The Spy Who Loved Me polish.

Revlon Nearly Naked has easily become my most favorite foundation, so having it as a monthly favorite was a given. You can read my review of it here.

The TONYMOLY Cats Wink mascara is another most favorite I discovered this month. My rave review of it can be found here!

I found myself using Urban Decay's Feminine palette a lot this month. Actually, it was almost the only palette I used! This shadows in this palette have a lovely formula and the shadows are really beautiful. My review and swatches of it are right here.

Next up is MAC's Flatter Me pearlmatte from the Archie's Girls collection. I used this everday (well everyday I wore makeup)! I love using it as either a highlight or blush (or both!). It's so pretty on the face as well as in the pan. The hearts in it make me smile each time I use it, haha. My review of it can be found here.

OPI's You Callin' Me a Lyre? and The Spy Who Loved Me were really nice polishes for February. The Spy Who Loved Me was the perfect polish to wear for Valentines Day, and You Callin' Me a Lyre? is the perfect polish to wear when you want a natural yet polished look to your nails. I don't have a post on You Callin' Me A Lyre?, but you can find my review and swatch of The Spy Who Loved Me here.

And my last favorite for February is MAC'S Strawberry Malt lipglass, which is also from the Archie's Girls collection. I love this gloss, and as you know I'm really not a gloss girl. I've worn this lipglass so much throughout the month. It's really beautiful and easy to wear with lots of different makeup or outfits. I loooove it. My review and swatches of it are here.

Alright, now for the products I finished up this month. I have four, but only three will be pictured.

The products featured here are Lancome's Hypnose Doll Lashes mascara, Soap & Glory's The Scrub Of Your Life, and the Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream. Not pictured is (you can probably guess) yet another pack of the Clean & Clear Cleansing Wipes.

I loved my Lancome Doll Lashes mascara for a long time. It gave you pretty and fluttery lashes just like a doll. I've kept this tube longer then I really should have, though, and it's also getting pretty dried out. I don't think I would repurchase just because I'm very happy with my TONYMOLY mascara, and there are also lots of other great drugstore mascaras.

This tube of The Scrub Of Your Life by Soap & Glory has lasted forever! I got it back in June and I just recently finished it up so I definitely got my moneys worth! I did really like this scrub but at the moment I won't be repurchasing as I have another scrub to try out.

And my last empty is the Camera Ready BB Cream by Smashbox. I never did write a review for this but I quite liked it. It does a nice job of evening out the complexion, and the finish isn't matte or oily looking - just natural. I used it more in the summer for the SPF and since it was something light to wear with all of the heat. As the colder months came and I became more pale I stopped using it for a bit because it was a bit too dark for me. When I started using it again I just mixed it with some moisturizer to lighten it a bit. I used it a lot in the summer, but I've just been using it on lazy days or natural makeup days. This also lasted forever which is nice since with taxes it came to about $60CA  - yikes. I liked it but not enough to repurchase (especially with that price!).
