February Beauty Favorites

Happy February Beauties!!! Seriously.. can you believe that February has already come and gone!? I seriously can’t! I was thinking to myself today… “Wow, I really graduate college in a little over 8 weeks.” LIKE WHAT!???? Yeah, I totally freaked myself out. Haha. Anywhoooooo, I am coming at y’all once again with my monthly favorites! This month’s makeup exploration was very interesting, to say the least. I came across so many products that I loved and some that… Well, I just wasn’t too pleased with. That’s how it is sometimes, though. Am I right?? Haha. This month’s beauty favorites are all about “everyday products” that can benefit you in so many ways! Sooooo, let’s take a peek at what I fell in love with!


Uhh, all of the products above have done me so much good!

Maybelline New York Volum’ Express The Colossal Big Shot Washable Mascara 


I usually stick to the same Maybelline mascara, Lash Sensational, but I was feeling a little daring one day and decided to try out the Big Shot mascara. GOOD thing I did! I really loved this mascara because of the applicator. It really allowed for a root to tip application that made my eyelashes look so voluminous. I am not a fan of clumpy mascara, so I am glad that this applicator allowed for my eyelashes to separate and look so smooth. Not to mention…when I used it my eyelashes actually looked longer. That is just my opinion. Haha. Lately, I have been using this mascara along with the Lash Sensational mascara to make sure that I get that extra lash separation that I am looking for. I highly recommend trying this mascara out, you can’t beat it for the price!

The next two products that I have been loving are Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream 8-in-1 Skin Protector & Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer. If you don’t know this by now… Which you probably should… I am Maybelline OBSESSED! I am sorry y’all! Their products are simply amazing for the price. I have yet to find a product that I truly do not love. I probably also love it so much because it was the very first product line that I actually started using on a daily back in high school.



 Okay so let me tell you why I have been loving this BB cream and pore eraser. I know I am not the only person who hates wearing a full coverage foundation EVERY SINGLE DAY.  Am I right!??? Well, this combo will be life changing! I am always on the go, so spending a  lot of time on my makeup in the morning is not always possible. On my busy, I “want my face to breathe” days haha… I throw on first the pore eraser and then the BB cream (light/medium). I truly love this combination.The pore eraser simply primes my face for the BB cream and gives my skin an added smooth touch.  I still get that natural “no makeup” look with a touch of moisture that leaves my skin looking glowy and hydrated. Who doesn’t love that?? I sure do! The BB cream is not an oily or heavy formula at all, which is great! I will say that if you are looking for full coverage, these products will not be the best option. It is a very lightweight formula and you can see a few of my blemish scars. I am not complaining though because those are a natural part of me! You all should definitely try this if you want something light for those busy days.

LOVE LOVE LOVE, MAC Lipstick- Craving.


This lipstick is such a great shade of pink/rose! It has been one of my everyday lips with a neutral eyeshadow. This is an amplified lipstick which has a creamy and high coverage finish. Not to mention, the shine is an added bonus. I love that is has a glossy look to it which makes my lips feel hydrated. Overall, I love this color for the spring season!

Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar is hydration at is finest!


This moisturizer has really been saving my skin lately! I have been on a skincare journey. I have been trying to venture out and find new products that are suitable for my sensitive skin. I use Renewed Hope it in the morning before I apply my makeup and at night after I wash my face. I have been really loving the extra hydration it provides. I truly feel like it is slowly bringing my semi-dry skin back to life, for a lack of better words. Haha. Also, it smells lovely!  I am going to continue to use it and I will definitely give y’all an update soon!

Last but not least, I have been LOVING the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.


If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you know that I have been talking about this TLSP a lot! So I am not going to talk much about this product because it deserves it’s very own post. Coming very soon! I promise. I will say that… it has transformed my entire foundation and contouring look and it was complimentary, thanks to Influenster and Sephora! I am so in love with the “dreamy” look it has been leaving my face with. I am so grateful that I received this product from Influenster… more on this coming soon! ❤

That is it for this month! Hope you Beauties enjoyed! Tell me what products you were loving in the month of February or products that you’d like to try out down below!
