February Loves

I've decided to start a 'favorites of the month' post. I made one last summer, but I basically just threw everything into one post.

So here are some of my favorite products from February (can't believe it's already March! It seems like it was JUST Christmas!)


Ecotools Bamboo 6 piece eye brush set, Maybelline Falsies Volum express mascara

My sister bought the brush set for me when she was in the states and I LOVE THEM. I had read so many wonderful reviews about these brushes, that I was honestly expecting to be a little disappointed. I definitely wasn't! These brushes are super soft and pick up eye shadows wonderfully. They are earth-friendly and cheap, too! I can't wait to get my hands on more of them!

The Maybelline mascara also surprised me. I didn't like it at first, it was way too runny and smudged every where. But the second or third time I tried it, it worked really well. I've used this mascara the most. I just loved the results so much that I didn't want to try out other ones!

 Nutraderm Lotion

This was recommended to me by my dermatologist. I've been suffering from severely dry skin all winter, but when I reacted to that facial, my skin also began to majorly peel. This does have liquid paraffin, an ingredient I try to avoid, but I haven't experienced any breakouts yet. I also sometimes apply this as an eye cream and it has drastically reduced my fine lines due to dehydration.

NYX Rouge Cream Blush - Rose Petal, Sephora matte dark brown shadow

This is the blush that I have worn the most this month. It's so easy to wear and I can wear it on bare skin. I apply it to my cheeks with my fingers and then blend it out with my Sigma slanted kabuki brush. It gives me that 'I just got in from a run' kind of glow.

The Sephora eyeshadow is one that I picked up at the Okku event. It's the perfect color and texture to fill in my eye brows. I use it with my Mac 263 brush and it works really well. It's also a great shadow to use in my crease and it's very buildable. 

Those are my favorite products of February, 2011! What have you guys been loving?

PS. Just a really quick note, Musings of a Makeup Maniac just posted about companies and animal testing. I'm trying to be more conscious of issues like this. Here's a link to the blog post. Apparently Maybellline are not totally open about their animal testing, so I will not be repurchasing their products. Unfortunately, I JUST bought a new mascara from them! Anyway, it's a good post and she also has a link to Pixiwoos blog post on the subject from last year.

  6. I haven't been using a NYX cream blush, but I have been loving cream blushes myself recently! I have found them so easy to blend, with the right brush!

  7. That NYX cream blush looks gorgeous. I have one of their cream blushes but definitely want more.
    I tried the Maybelline Falsies mascara after seeing so many raves about it, but to be honest, I dont think it works for me. I don't see a difference when I use it and I find it clumps on me a lot.

    The Peach, they are so easy to work with and you can throw them in your bag without worrying that they'll break! :)
    Alicia, I also have the orange one and I like that one too. The quality is great and the colors are so pigmented. Sorry you didn't like Falsies :(
    Beauty Addict, they are just the best! haha I don't know if I'll be repurchasing the Falsies mascara (cuz of the animal testing) but I'll definitely be buying more ecotools brushes! because I totally need more brushes! haha

    Nora I really recommend them! They're such great quality for the price. I was actually kind of worried about animal testing, but it turns out that there are loads and loads of companies that are cruelty free! so yay! :)
