February 2017 Favorites

It’s been a while since I have done a favorites post. I’ve been using A LOT of new products the last fews months so I really want to tell you guys about them.

img_0438I want to start off with the items that have been saving my dry skin during these winter months.

Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid and Cream Duo $34

ceramidin

I purchased this duo at Sephora for $34. It comes with 1 oz of the Ceramidin Liquid and 0.5 oz of the Cream. I tried out the cream whenever Sephora had them as a 100 point perk. I love how moisturizing it is. A little goes a long way. I like to be stingy with this so I only use it in my really dry areas – nose and other dry spots. I do the same with liquid. I use the Belif Moisturizing Bomb on top all over my face. I would choose the cream over the liquid. I’m also interested in trying their tinted moisturizer. All of the Ceramidin products have amazing reviews.

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Water-Max Sleeping Mask $48

This mask is supposed to lock in moisture while you sleep. I use it after I apply my serum and moisturizer (Origins Night-A-Mins). The mask basically seals your moisturizer so it can hydrate your skin all night. I love how calming and soothing it is. I wake up in the morning with soft skin. If my skin is super dry and flakey, I use it like 3-4 nights in a row and it definitely helps. I purchased mine during the Sephora VIB Sale. The regular price is $48.

Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation $40

This has been a great foundation for winter! I will tell you right now, this foundation isn’t meant for all skin types. I would stay away from this if you have very oily skin. It’s made with pure Argan Oil which is one of Josie’s most popular products. This foundation has a medium coverage. It’s very moisturizing and gives you beautiful glowing skin. It can cling on to dry patches but not nearly as bad as other foundations do. I also love the smell. I purchased mine on QVC for $40. It also came with a duo fiber brush. I prefer to use a beauty sponge to apply though. I chose the shade Medium RG50.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer $23

I was honestly so surprised I liked this product. My mother actually had this and I decided to try it. I may or may have not have permanently borrowed it from her (hehe). I LOVE how natural it makes my brows look. It’s super easy and fast to use. It applies the perfect amount of product and blends effortlessly. I’m wearing it in the picture above.  I also feel like it lasts wayyyyy longer than the brow wiz does. This along with her brow gel is the shiiiiiiii… It’s $23 and the brow wiz is $21, but it contains more product than wiz. I’ve been using it everyday for a couple months and it’s still going strong.

The Balm Manizer Sisters $28

I’ve been wanting to try the oh so famous Mary-Lou Manizer for the longest. When I saw this I knew it was the perfect time to try it out. I love how compact it is. Perfect for my makeup bag and traveling. I like the highlight, but I don’t think it’s as amazing as everyone claims it to be. I really love the blush. It has the perfect amount of shimmer. The bronzer was a bit too orange for my liking but it’s still pretty. I have used all three products together and you would think my face looked like a disco ball, but it worked. You can buy this product for $28. Sometimes The Balm has sales on their website so I’d keep an eye out for that.

Eve Pearl Dual Salmon Concealer $43

I remember when I first started getting into makeup this product was all the rave. Six years later I finally purchased it and I’m glad I did. I bought on QVC.com for $43. It also came with a brush (that I really like btw). This contains a salmon colored corrector on the right and your skin shade on the left. The salmon shade works great to cover dark spots. I typically use the concealer shade to shape out my eyebrows. I don’t use both under eyes because it will cause major creasing. The only way I can apply this product is with my fingers. The warmth of your finger makes it really blend in. It doesn’t blend well with a brush at all. I think it’s because my undereye area is too dry. So far this is my favorite orange/peachy corrector!

Caudalie Grape Water $13

My friend told me how much she liked this product so of course I had to try it. I’ll be honest this product doesn’t do much to my skin, it just makes me feel fancy AF. It is pure grape water. It is very soothing and does calm any redness or irritation. It’s not life changing by any means, I just love the way it feels. I like to use it in the morning and night after removing any makeup. I will definitely be repurchasing.

I mentioned quite a few skin care products in here. I have been using so many new skin care products lately. I will have a blog post on just skin care soon.

Thanks for reading.

XO, Diana
