Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil – Cruella

I got this lip pencil as a part of a set, I also have this in a different colour. I like them, I’ve heard some bad things about it saying it comes off in flakes but I’ve haven’t had that problem plus I believe anything matte is drying so you need to make sure your lips are nice and moisturized! This is a good product though, it stays on and colour lasts. You can get this at Sephora for $34.00.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil

I got this when I got the Sephora Favourites for Dry Skin. I was skeptical of this product at first since I just thought it was going to make my skin extremely oily but it didn’t, then I was surprised at how many things you can use this product for. The list of things you can you it for, as Sephora recommends are:
-For face: warm two to four drops in your hands and lovingly press the oil into your skin day and night. Use on top of serums and creams
-For under-eye area: use to intensely hydrate and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
-For hair: use to treat split ends and minimize flyaways.
-For nails: use to condition cuticles.
-For body: use to firm skin soften rough patches.

I have used it on my face and it didn’t make it oily, probably because you’re only pressing it on your face and not rubbing a lot into it. This product lasts a very long time depending on how much you are using it and for where but I do recommend this. You can get this at Sephora for $60.00 for standard size, $20.00 for the mini.

Aveda Pramasana Exfoliating Scalp Brush

This is the first part of a multi-step treatment for your scalp. Dry brushing the scalp is the first step to cleaning the scalp, it helps loosen build up and also increases circulation. The brush feels amazing, as you look in the picture they’re loops that dry brush the scalp this helps loosen the build up. You can get this treatment in an Aveda salon but you can also get this for home for $30.00.

Spring Miriradia – Dark Beige Smooth

I got these because I have a “fall verison” of these and I wanted a pair that I could wear in the summer. These are super comfortable shoes, it shocks me when I put heels on and they’re already comfortable to start with. They’re easy to walk in and stay on your foot, it’s a great summer sandal. Spring is a great store, I got these for $59.99.

Simons Shower Cap 

I randomly saw this when I was at Simons shopping for clothes but fell in love with it since (a) it has cats on it, (b) it was $5 and (c) I needed a shower cap cause my hair was getting wet. Now I don’t wash my hair everyday, I just use to put my hair in a bun and hope I was good enough at not getting my hair wet. Some days I was and some days I failed. This works wonders but I have to say eventually it does scratch out eventually after using it for a bit but what do you want for $5! It works, it keeps my hair dry! You can get this at Simons for $5.00.

February Favourites 2015!

Make Up Favourite

tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant

I believe I got this for Christmas 2 years agao and I still have it and lots of it. It’s not an everyday make up routine, maybe once a week. I tend to use it whenever I have chapped lips that just started to get bad. It’s great because it gets rid of all the dead skin and your lips start to feel good again. You can get this product at Sephora for $21.00.

Dove Revive Dry Spray Antiperspirant

I saw all the commercials for this new product and I wanted to try it out for myself. I use the normal Dove deodorants so I’m familiar with the company, I must say I’m pretty impressed. It smells great and you don’t have to worry about those clumps that can happen. Now the bottle says it’s 48 hour protection – that’s a straight up lie – it works like your normal deodorant, you’re gonna have to reapply. You can get it at any local store that sells beauty supplies, mine was roughly $6.00.

Organix Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Extra Penetrating Oil (Dry and Coarse Hair)

I got this because we all know I work in a pool and it kills my hair. I’ve been using this for about 2 years now and love it, you don’t need a lot, maybe a little drop, rub it in your hands than put it in your hair. I mostly put it in the ends because that’s where it gets the worst. You can put too much in your hair and make your hair greasy looking. You can get this at any beauty supply/drug store roughly for $6.00 to $7.00.

St. Ives Oatmeal & Shea Butter Hydrating Body Wash

So the story with this one was I ran out of body wash at my boyfriend’s house and forgot to buy more. When I was in the shower one of the roommates body wash was there. She’s my friend so I just used a little bit. It made my body feel so soft and clean, I went home and bought some for myself; and it smell pretty good too. The best part is after I come out of the chlorine and I use this my skin isn’t dry and itchy anymore. I got this at Target for $4.00.

the-loop-premade-drinks-girls-night-out-sangriaGirls’ Night Out Sangria – Flavoured Wine

My good friend decided that she was going to have a wine and cheese night, and I’m not much of a wine drinker but I do love sangria. My boyfriend got me hooked on it, anyways, I started looking online and I know the Girls’ Night Out brand is pretty good. I found sangria flavoured wine! It’s pretty damn good, I shared it with my family before the wine and cheese night, and we finished the bottle pretty damn fast. In the summer you can totally put it in a jug, cut some fruit up and sit outside with it. It is definitely a good starter wine. Here in Canada we have a alcohol store called the LCBO, you can get it there for $8.95.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera – Black

I’ve wanted this camera for years but it’s so popular and kind of hard to find. My sister found it for me and gave it to my for Christmas. The pictures are smaller than normal Polaroid cameras you grew up with or that your parents had but you can get a camera with that size film. The camera is $99.99 at Best Buy, it comes with 2 film packs (20 pictures), the only problem is finding more film, they sell out fast and cost $12.00-$21.00. You also can only get photo albums for it on Ebay right now, they haven’t gotten that for, nor do I think they will. They seem to focus on the cameras only. It is still an amazing and fun camera, old things are coming back!

Alright and that’s it for February Favourites, let me know what you think of my products or tell me what your favourites were this month.
