It’s that time of the month again to review what you’ve been putting on your face. I start to like doing this kind of post as this reminds me to be more selective in buying products in the future (yeah right, like it’s possible haha…) well, at least I try not to buy everything 🙂
So without further due, let’s just get into them
- Tartelette Amazonian Clay
Y’all know that I’m trying to pan this palette this year so no wonder this now becomes my February favorite. I’m doing pretty good in using this palette. Not only because it’s basically a really solid palette for everyday look, but also for the so many matte shades that I can reach for every time I create a look, whether it’s for the crease or to set the eye shadow primer. I do mix this palette with others for some pop of color.
Side note: I don’t do as good with my Lorac palette though. I know I put it on my palette rotation and I did use it for a couple times this month, but my next favorite is the reason why I failed to use the Lorac palette more.
- Tartelette In Bloom
I know, I know, I’m terribly late to the hype of this palette. But, what can I say, since I got this on Valentine day I can’t stop using it. It smells so good (kinda similar to the Too Faced chocolate palettes scent) and the colors in this palette, especially the shimmer ones are STUNNING.. I don’t regret at all to choose this over the Tarteist Pro Palette when my husband asked me which one that I want. I feel I can use this palette a whole lot more that the Tarteist Pro, because yes the Tarteist Pro has more shades but it’s more warm tones. I love that the In Bloom palette is more neutral and daily use friendly. No wonder it’s on many people favorite (PS: Kandee Johnson and Kathleen Light love this palette so much)
- Too Faced La Crème in Juicy Melons (*)
I am not a fan of liquid lipstick, never was and never will. So, yes even though it’s kinda ‘old style’ I still and will always love conventional lipstick. It’s called lipstick so it should be a stick for the lips, and yes it should be in a stick form J Well, this lipstick in particular is so comfortable on the lips, creamy not greasy and has such a pretty warm pink tone. It doesn’t have the best staying power and I do have to re-apply it throughout the day but I don’t mind at all. I’d prefer to re-apply my lipstick over and over again but my lip doesn’t feel dry and I still can get away without exfoliating them every single day
- Milani Baked Blush – Luminoso
Again, another super late hype on a product. I really wanna bang my head and scream “where have I been?” This blush is sooo pretty. Well, I guess I don’t have to say much on this one. Pssst, I’m on the mission to get some other shades from this baked blush line. I do mix this blush with BH Cosmetics floral blush too. The BH blush is more on the shimmery side so I don’t use it as much
- Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer(*)
Hey everyone, my name is Fenica and I’m a chocaholic. I’m obsessed with this sweet delicious thing since I was a kid. You all know that good stuff about this thing. It’s a chocolate-y brown completely matte bronzer with enough warmth to bring some life to my slightly pale skin during the winter. Who am I kidding? I don’t only use it on winter of course. This bronzer is so good and quite versatile I might say. It’s suitable for light-medium skin tone but even if you’re fair you can still put this on without looking muddy. I use this yummy bronzer for contouring too.
PS: I don’t have any contouring product, always use my bronzers for contouring.
- Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – Mini Size
I just realized when I organized my makeup I have some mini mascara from my purchases so I’m gonna put mascara in my no buy list until mid of the year. I love this mini size Roller Lash so much. The curve wand is really nice to apply the mascara on top and bottom lashes. It gives nice natural curl even without curling you eyelashes first. I will definitely put this on top of the list of my favorite mascara and probably get the full size once I’ve used up all my other mascaras.
- Essence Pure Nude highlight
With my oily skin and big pores, blinding glowy rainbow highlight is not on my attention when I put my makeup on. I produce my own highlight on my skin J but anyway, this nude highlight really got me. It gives just enough subtle glow to balance out my matte products that I cake up on my face. I use this on top of my cheek, and a little on my cupid bow to give that lips a fuller look.

- Formula 10.0.6 PM Perfector
If this isn’t a best friend for oily skin girl, I don’t know what is. I bought this at almost the end of January, and I can already see the difference in my skin in about a month using it intensively. It really helps to balance my skin condition. Before using this cream, I always woke up with greasy oil all over my face, yes all over my forehead, cheek, nose, and chin. After using this amazing cream, I notice that it’s only my nose that’s still so greasy when I wake up. It’s great that Formula 10.0.6 sent me some products and this PM Perfector is included so I have backup. A little note, if you have dry skin I don’t think this night cream will do much for you because it doesn’t feel hydrating but it’s soothing and feel tightening when you first apply it. After it’s absorbed it’s just nice smooth skin feeling, and not much hydrating going on.
- Treat Beauty Lip Scrub
Holy Moly if I don’t hold myself I would have chewed this thing up. It smells so delicious, and taste sooo good too. I’m a lazy girl to the core, so if I can do something the easiest way, be sure that I will do it. I’m a fan of winter but I hate that my lips get dry so bad during that time of the year (it’s already above 75 degrees here, so winter is over here in SC) I love this lip scrub as much as I love conventional lipstick, because Treat Beauty makes it in the form of lipstick (the size is 0.5 oz, regular lipstick size is 0.11oz) Just apply this like you apply regular lipstick, well massage and rub it a little more and you’re good to go. Highly recommend this, it’s convenient, easy to use, travel-friendly and of course, smell delicious 😉 (Pssst..they’re always free shipping so you can buy only one product without paying shipping)
NOTE : Sad to say the Laneige sleeping mask and the yoghurt one makes my skin much more oily than usual so I stop using it. On the plus side, this will be a good alternative for the PM Perfector for the dry skin.
Now, as for the products that I’m putting on my March rotation are :
- Nyx Avant Pop
- Nyx Sweet Cheeks blush
- Nyx Strobe of Genius
- Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation
- Maybelline Fit Me concealer
