February was kind of a sucky month for me. It has been so freakin’ cold and my arthritis meds stopped working for me which put me in an instant flare up. I have started new meds so hopefully I will be feeling better soon.
I have kept February pretty simple in terms of products. I needed stuff that is fast, easy to apply, and long lasting. Because when you’re achy touch-ups take a backseat.
For the Face:
Again the Lise Watier Teint Age Control Supreme is a favorite. I love how this medium coverage foundation has a semi-dewy finish. I will be posting a review later on this month about the Lise Watier Teint Age Control.
MAC ProLongwear Concealer in NW20 - This stuff is so awesome. It covers everything, stays put and doesn’t crease. I even use it as an eye primer.
Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray – like I mentioned before, I need my makeup to last as long as possible as I didn’t have the energy to keep up with touch-ups. The All Nighter Setting Spray makes sure that my makeup lasts for the whole work day looking great. It helps set everything a nice finish. I have had this for awhile but I only started using last month. What was I waiting for?
The blush I have been reaching for the most this month has been the Balm’s Frat Boy. It is a great peachy pink. It is pretty pigmented so a little goes a long way.
On My Eyes:
The main palette I have been reaching for is my Urban Decay Naked Basics. Simple and fast! I love my Basics palette. I have a review of it here.
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly - I have been using this as a base to even out my tired eyes. If I forget to apply the Mac ProLongwear concealer on my lids then this is what I have been using.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze - Yeah sometimes I get real lazy and just use this cream shadow. It is gorgeous even on its own. Just apply to the lid with your finger and blend out in the crease and you are good to go!
I almost embarrassed to show my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl liner in Nude. My dog got a hold of it and chewed the end off of it. I sprayed it down with some Beauty So Clean and replaced the lid and it is good again. Albeit a little beaten up. But this liner is great for the lower waterline to wake up some tired eyes.
Lastly for the eyes, I am back to using my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. I find this so easy to apply and it lasts. Gel liners rock!
On the Lips
L’Oreal Colour Caress Wet Shine Stain in Rose On and On – I really like this shade but on its own it is very drying on my lips. So now I make sure I really prime lips with some EOS Lip Balm or my new Epic Green Apple lip balm. Both help this stain to work on me. It’s a bit of a pain to apply balm before a stain/gloss but better than super chapped lips in three days!
I can’t forget to mention my favorite lip liner, Annabelle lip liner in Demure. This is the perfect liner for a pinky nude lip. Sometimes I just wear it on its own.
I did forget to take a picture of my primer. It hasn’t changed for the past few months. It is the Annabelle CC Cream of course! I think it will be on my favorites list for a long time!
February has been pretty much all about simple. I can get ready in 10 minutes using these products. Which happened a lot last month LOL. I cannot wait for spring and warmer weather. What about you guys? Sick of winter already?
What was your favorite product this month? Do you use any of the products I mentioned?
Blog Name Update:
Just to let you guys know, I have made the change to all my social media to reflect my new blog name/url; www.themakeupnut.com. On Twitter and Instagram, you will see me popping up as @themakeupnut. Bloglovin’ was great and made the update for me. So I will be popping up there as ‘themakeupnut’ too.
But I had to create a new Facebook page for the new blog name. I requested to have my page name changed but I was DENIED! I had over 200 likes so you have to apply for a name change. My new name was too different from 99Raina99 so they said I had to create a new page. So now I have new page: Themakeupnut. My goal this week is to re-Like everyone pages again LOL. AGGHH Facebook you suck sometimes!
I updated all my social media links in the sidebar.
