February Recap

by Joyce in


This month totally flew by - with a too short trip to NYC at the beginning of the month, and general exhaustion and despair over winter for the rest of the month... 

I also started taking a figure skating class to get some exercise, and I'm super excited to pick it up again. (I skated as a kid but wouldn't say I was all that great at it!) 

Here's a peek at some of my Instagram snaps over the last few weeks. If you're not following me already, do visit and say hello! :) 

Posts This Month: February Empties // Makeup On The Go // Love/Hate: Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask // Goldfaden MD Hands to Heart // Overnight Hydration Masks // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes // Tatcha Gold Camellia Lip Balm // Lush Lots of Love // Products That Didn't Work for Me // Instead of Roses // Bite Beauty Lip Lab // NYC Beauty Purchases // Perfect Palette Tag

Products I Loved: I rediscovered my Burberry Dark Sable eyeshadow. I just love that shade as liner or for a bit of natural smokiness on my lids. Yay Burberry! On the perfume front, I'm still loving Balenciaga Rosabotanica, a new and slightly spicy yet fresh floral scent. I'll be sharing the rest of my February favorites in the next few days!

Product Disappointments: No disappointments this month, but I'm still haven't made my decision about Smashbox Always Sharp 3D Liner and Nars Matte Multiple. Have you tried them? I'd love to know your thoughts.

Beauty Purchases: Aside from my purchases in NYC, some fake lashes from Ulta, and a few small items from Sephora (UD Grindhouse, Bite Neutral Lip Duo, Beautyblender Solid Cleanser, Sephora Eyebrow Stencils and the previously mentioned Nars and Smashbox) I did very little shopping in February. I did pick up my first Mac Paint Pot in Tailor Grey that I have yet to try. 

Added to the Wishlist: There's always a million and a half things that end up on my wishlist, but I'm definitely eyeing some Tom Ford (still) and the new shades of Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eyeshadow... 

What's been on your radar this month? Are you surviving this cold winter?? :)
