My monthly favorites posts are some of my very favorite ones to write.  It gives me the perfect excuse to reflect on the month and really take a look at what I was enjoying and what I wasn’t!  I love this because then I try to make an effort to increase my favorites and eliminate the things that I didn’t enjoy.  This month seemed to be the month of skincare for me.  Let’s call this the month of moisturizer.  HAHA!  This has become somewhat common since my skin has been so much more clear!  I don’t want to leave you hanging so let’s just jump right into it!

 

MAKEUP

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz – I seriously love this brow product. This is one of my favorites because I have very thick eyebrows and I’m able to use this to just fill them in and make them more bold.  But, I know tons of people who use this even if they have the most sparse of eyebrows.  It looks so natural, lasts all day, and doesn’t leave a waxy feeling on your brows.  I can not stand when a product feels dry or waxy on my brows and this one does neither!  I use the shade Dark Brown (it used to be called Brunette).

Laqa & Co. Cloud Lips – I received this product in the shade Daydream in my GlossyBox this month.  To be honest, I had never heard of this brand.  I really only gave it a shot because the shade is stunning.  I would call it a mauve-pink shade.  You could wear this and make it super bold or you could also rock this for a gorgeous everyday look.  I would call this formula a matte-satin.  It looks like a matte but isn’t drying and looks even better on the lips than on this swatch!  I was super impressed and I will definitely be picking up a few more shades from the Cloud Lips line from Laqa & Co.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Colour – I LOVE THIS.  This is a super buildable eye color.  I like to use this two ways.  First, I like to use it as a base for my shadows because it really holds pigment well and also adds a nice tone and shimmer to my look.  I also like to use this as a standalone product if I’m not going all out with my look.  You can just rub some on your finger and apply it all over the lid or you can apply it straight from the stick for a more vibrant look.

 

SKINCARE

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser – This cleanser feels so amazing on the skin.  So many cleansers dry my skin out and make it so that I have to layer on the moisturizer to keep from looking flaky.  This cleanser is not like that.  You can use it all over your face and even right on your eyes.  It’s super gentle but really gets the job done!

boscia MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil – This cleansing oil has been a total game changer for me.  I usually have to scrub to get waterproof mascara off and I still get done and feel like my skin isn’t completely free of makeup.  This cleansing oil changes that.  I use this all over and it feels amazing from the instant that you apply it to when you are completely done.  It has such a great cooling effect and really takes off the stubborn makeup that other cleansers would leave behind.

Algenist Recharging Night Pressed Serum – I had never used a pressed serum before this one.  At first glance I felt like there wasn’t very much product in the container.  However, once I started using this… my opinion changed.  You just need a tiny amount and once you start massaging it into your skin, it really turns into a serum and melts into the skin.  Algenist did such an amazing job on this one.  This just may be my favorite serum of all time… that’s saying something!

La Roche-Posay Clarifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes – I also received these towelettes in my GlossyBox.  The package included 10 of the towelettes and I’m already itching to order them so that I don’t run out before I have more.  I generally just use any makeup remover wipe and don’t really think much about it because all of those that I’ve tried have performed the same for me.  However, these towelettes are not the same.  They are perfectly saturated and leave your face feeling softer and more moisturized than before.  I have not yet used these to remove makeup, however, these are perfect for those no makeup days that you just want to feel fresh.

SOL Bum Bum Cream – So this cream melts into the skin and leaves you feeling moisturized without that nasty greasy feeling.  I started using this about 5 months ago and I just use it about once a week.  I need to get in a routine of using it more often because it really does make a huge difference in my skin.  I’ve never used this on my face, however, I love this cream on my hips, belly, and arms especially.  I have super dry upper arms and this really brings back the moisture that I need so badly!

Dr. Jart Hydration Lover Rubber Mask – This mask is super fun, hydrating, and such a fashion statement!  HA!  This mask comes with the actual rubber mask and a bit of hydrator.  You start my cleansing your face like you normally would, then you massage the hydrator into your skin.  It actually is a lot like the rubber mask that you mix up in the Shake and Shot mask by Dr. Jart.  After you have massaged the hydrator into your skin, you apply the rubber mask.  It comes in two pieces and is super easy to apply.  The packaging says you can leave it on for 30-40 minutes.  I left mine on for 40 minutes to try to get the most out of the mask.  WOW!

I was shocked at how well it worked.  Seriously, my face is so moisturized and feels amazing.  You won’t get that greasy feeling like when a moisturizer just sits on top of your face with this mask.  You will get intense, deep hydration.  SO IMPRESSED.

MISCELLANEOUS

Elizabeth & James Nirvana Amethyst – YES, I’m still completely stuck on this scent.  This is my favorite perfume of all time.  HANDS DOWN.  I actually got this from a Christmas Gift of those sets that you get a ton of perfumes to try and then you can get one full size for free.  This one immediately stood out to me.  It smells so amazing and can be worn during the day or at night and isn’t really season specific, in my opinion.  The packaging is gorgeous.  I also really love Elizabeth & James White and the Black scent, as well.  Those two are especially amazing when worn together!

Flora Bloom Market – Guys, I got the CUTEST earrings of all time!  If you know me, at all, you know that I LOVE BASEBALL.  Of course, she has tons of super fun other choices and also carries headbands!  I love all of her items but these are one of my favorites!

Well, I think that’s it!  Check out my GlossyBox unboxing to see more fun items that come in these subscription boxes!
