February was an awesome month. I cant believe it is over already. I did not change my skin care or makeup routine too much. I was pretty much using the same things this month. I did, however, buy a few new products. So read on to see what I have been loving in this past month.
Stilla Stay All Day 10 in 1 HD Illuminating BB Cream
Phew! That was a long name. I wasn’t in the mood to wear too much make up last month. So I dug into my stash and started using this BB cream again. It is an amazing BB cream. It comes only in one shade but surprisingly, the shade suits most skin tones. What I really like about this one is that it makes my skin glow when applied and it does not contain any glitter particles. It has medium coverage. It does, however, contain SPF.
Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate
I got a sample size of this product and used it during my trip to Goa. I save up all the samples I get for trips, as they are super easy to travel with and don’t take up any space. I have been using the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate since almost one and half years now and I have to say that I cannot live without it. So when I got this Daily Reviving Concentrate I was excited to try it. I use about two drops of it in the morning. It is such a light weight oil that it completely dissolves into my skin and I then go on to apply moisturizer. Sometimes I use it without the moisturizer too. I have been getting a lot of compliments these days for my skin. So I think the credit goes to this serum. It moisturizes my skin and makes my dull skin look nice and plump. I am definitely repurchasing a full size bottle of it soon.
Clarisonic Mia 2
During the Black Friday sales in America, I got a little crazy. My husband told me some relatives are coming back so I can order a few things. One of the things that I really wanted to get was a clarisonic. So when I spotted Clarisonic Mia 2 at the price of Mia 1 at the Sephora website, I didn’t waste any time and ordered it. I got a lot of samples also with it. Clarisonic is a device for deep cleaning your skin. I have been using it 3 – 4 times a week and my skin feels so soft after using it. I put 2-3 pumps of my Forest Essentials face wash on the brush and move it in circular motions on my forehead, cheeks, nose, chin etc.
Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days Gel Nail Polish
Maybelline recently launched these nail polishes in India. I picked up Mint for Life because I loved the colour and I haven’t seen a similar colour in any other brand. First of all, I loved the color and secondly, I loved the formula. I applied 2 coats and had it for about 8 or 9 days and stayed on quite nicely. I noticed very few chips by the time I removed it. I am surely going and buying a few other shades in this range.
MAC Eye Shadow Quad
I have reviewed this Quad in detail in a blog post. Click here to read. I picked up Sable, Cranberry, Folie and Expensive Pink. I have just been using this palette ever since I bought it. It is amazing for an every day look or for an evening out. In love!!
So these were my favorites. Do let me know what you have been loving recently.
