Hey there, bow friends!
I know. We are literally half way through February and I’m posting a favorites post. Not such a great start to being committed to my favorites, but I will get one up every month. It’s my destiny. Anyways, let’s get on with the favorites!
So I’ve been obsessed with two completely different lip colors. The Revlon Lip Butter in Wild Watermelon had made a comeback! I threw it on for a Lunar New Year Event and man. I forgot how much I loved the formula and awesome pigmentation. If you’ve been keeping up with B&B this month, you’d know I’ve been loving purple lips like the Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Brazen Berry. This shade is such a flattering, bright, spring time shade that fits the barely-there-makeup and neon lip trend perfectly. I’ve been wearing it constantly.
Two brushes too?! I must be really into pairs. The Real Techniques Powder Brush and Expert Face Brush have found permanent places in my heart. If you keep up with my recent purchases on my Luvocracy page, you’ll know I wasn’t completely impressed with the powder brush to begin with. After I washed it with the Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap (I love the hemp rose one, by the way.) it turned into what is probably one of the softest brushes I own. I don’t use it for setting makeup as I like to push powder on when I’m setting everything (I’ll use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush instead), but I love it for all over finishing powder as well as all over bronzing. The expert face brush is such a great density and size for pushing and buffing foundation into the skin. I love it so much, I even bought another one to use for cream blush. It is that good.
Now, I won’t go on about this too much because I mentioned it in my 2013 favorites, but I still can’t get enough of my MorrocanOil Treatment. It honestly makes my ends so healthy, keeps my hair incredibly shiny, and helps enhance my hair’s natural wave and curl. Speaking of curl, the Milani Eye Tech Extreme Liquid Eyeliner is a champion against a pair of eyelash curlers. I find that with other liquid or gel liners, when I curl my lashes it takes off some of my liner, which means I have to re-line. Blah. But I love this liner for so much more than that. The lasting power, the pigmentation, and the thin point are all impeccable. Thanks to this little beauty, I’m back in love with a good cat eye. Just can’t get enough.
Want a nice rosy flush for spring (LOL GOOD ONE TARA WHAT IS SPRING?)?In comes the Physician’s Formula Happy Booster in Warm. I’ve never tried anything from Physician’s Formula and I got a great first impression of the brand from this product. There’s one little corally red heart amongst larger, light mauve hearts and glittery baby pink ones too. Blended together they create a beautiful, healthy flush. I was looking to an alternative to heavy foundation to use everyday and one thing I’ve fallen in love with is the Dark Yellow Colour Supplement by Lush. The pigmentation is incredible and I think the yellow tone really suits my skin. It leaves a natural finish to my skin and has a pretty decent lasting power when set. Plus, I think my skin loves it. It’s awesome.
This has been a long one so let me make these last two quick. I’m still loving the wet brush. Here is why. And the Korres Jasmine Body Butter? Holy. So moisturizing. Such a nice relaxing sent and completely non-greasy. I’m in love. But more on that another day. Just know I love it.
And now for the moment you have all been waiting for! Drum roll please! The lucky winner is… Skylar Smiles! Congrats on your win! I’m so excited for you!
