Hello hello! Can’t believe we’re here again!

Such a short month and it FLEW by. I have a few new favorites from the month and few oldies but goodies that I adore. I wore makeup a lot more this month that I have in awhile – well, since the beginning of the year when I resolved to really GET READY every single day! Not tons of makeup, but at least the basics!

In good news, I also heard that Benefit Gimme Brow might be coming back next month? I hope! I have tried everything everyone has suggested and nothing is exactly like the product. I did try the Essence version and it’s VERY close… but not exact.

What else?! I’m still obsessed with the RMS luminizer. It is all I’ve used to highlight. If you’re looking to grab one thing, that should be it! Otherwise, here are my major February faves below. Can’t wait to hear what you’re loving. Woohoo.

Marc Jacobs Eye Conic Palette in Glambition. This is one of the palettes that I got back during the VIB sale and it’s become my go-to quick makeup when I actually put on real makeup. Like when I don’t have tons of time to do eyeshadow, but want something a little more. These colors are SO pretty! And I love how buttery and smooth the shadows are. It’s the kind of neutral palette that I love.

Peter Thomas Roth Hyaluronic Cloud Eye Patches. A bunch of you recommended the cloud cream from Peter Thomas Roth and while I haven’t grabbed that yet, I did get these eye patches and love them so far, despite only using them twice. I’m a sucker for anything with hyaluronic acid. I usually use the Skyn Iceland eye gels, but love how these come in a jar. I only use them for special occasions or when we are filming or something. Love love love.

MAC Patrick’s Powder. I finally ran out of the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder (which is the ONLY powder I ever use on my face other than blush/bronzer) and it’s what I set my concealer with under my eyes. I use just the lightest touch. I decided to try this instead and it’s perfect because it’s so pink! My skin is super cool toned and very very pink and this just blends in perfectly. Also sets the concealer really well. This contained is gigantic.

Oribe Apres Beach Spray. I love having a beachy waves spray on hand and this is the newest that I grabbed. I wanted a travel size so I can take it with me on book tour adventures. A little goes a long way but it doesn’t leave your hair feeling like straw. Really liking it!

MAC Fix+ Coconut! Oh my gosh – I wanted this SO badly when it was limited edition last year because I adore fix+ and adore coconut. So glad they brought it back and in large sizes. I’ve only been using it for a week but it’s just as great as the original.

Caudalie Moisturizing Toner. This is a toner that I’ve used for years, but I’ve been using it religiously morning AND night, with exfoliating cotton rounds (those are key!) and I’m convinced that it’s the reason, combined with the skincare I mentioned last month, that my skin tone is so even right now. This is such a comfortable toner and often what I will also use to cleanse my face in the morning when my skin is really dry.

Glossier Cloud Paint. This is still the ONLY Glossier product that I like. But wow – do I ever love it. Since buying it, it’s the only blush I’ve worn every single day. I’ve grabbed nothing else! Love it so much. This is the color Puff.

Annnnd that’s a wrap. Curious to hear what you think of the Too Faced festival/unicorn line! I’m obsessed with looking at it but don’t think I’ll get any of it. If I was 21… maybe. What else are you loving this month? And what are you looking forward to in Spring?
