February Favorites 2012

It is March! I am pretty happy :D February has been a pain in the arse and I really wanted it to be over. But it was a very month as far as makeup is concerned. I have tried a lot of new products and started using some of my unloved products. Here are the things I used the most this month:

EYES
1. Wet n Wild 'Greed' Palette

I have had this for a while, but only now have I started to use it. I am really in love with it! It is a great quality palette and it was so inexpensive (I paid $1.79 since it was on sale). I was able to create two looks that I ended up loving! You can check those out HERE and HERE and swatches and review of the palette HERE.

2. Artistry Mascara
I have been liking this mascara a lot. My mom gave it to me to try out, and I actually really like. I don't think I would purchase it with my own money since it is slightly more expensive and I am usually very cheap when it comes to mascaras.

3. MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in 'Desires & Devices'
I bought this from the Felines collection a while back, but I never even opened it. I am so amazed with this! It is freaking beautiful! Although it can be a little watery for a liquid liner, it still is incredibly pretty. I will have an EOTD with this soon :D

4.Dolly Wink Pencil Liner
I am surprised that I like this. Pencil liners are very frustrating for me. They always smudge and do crazy stuff on my eyes. This one stays put very well though! I am so happy I ended up trying this. It is more expensive than I would like though...I hope it doesn't run out soon!

CHEEKS
5. Illamasqua Moral Blush

♥ LOVE. I have been in love with this blush from the second I swatched it. It is sooo beautiful. It is a buildable purple-magenta color with a gorgeous sheen. It looks super bright, but it really isn't. This is going to perfect for spring/summer! Oddly, it smells good too. The only bad thing I can see about this is that the sheen might be a little too much for people with oily skin, but I wouldn't really know since I have combo skin.

6.NYX Peach Blush

This is a must for all of you pale skin ladies. This pale peachy-pink is PERFECT for spring/summer. It is so flattering on my skin. Not just the color, but the paleness and softness of the color really compliments fair skin. It is really inexpensive too. I have been reaching for this a lot and I see it as my "transition to spring" blush.

LIPS
7. Lancome Color Fever Gloss in 'Hibis-kiss'

This is a gloss I purchased eh...late last summer I think. I have been using it A LOT! Again, it is a good transition to spring color because it has a hint of coral, but it is sheer enough that it is not overpowering. It is glossy, sparkly, and oh so much fun! Although I like it, it is kind of expensive, so I don't think I would repurchase it.


8. MAC Supreme Sheen Lipstick in 'Asian Flower'
Ah, what more can I say about this beautiful shade of purple/pink? This is seriously my HG purple lippie. It is not too cool-toned and suits my skin tone so amazingly. It brightens up my complexion with a pop of color, but it isn't so bright that it will call too much attention. I am almost finished with my first tube :/ Must buy a backup soon! You can see a review and swatch HERE.


What are your favorites for February?
