February Favorites

"Favorites" posts/videos discuss the products (and other misc things) you loved for that month. The products can either be purchased that month or (old) "rediscovered" items. Favorites are published at the end of the current month or at the beginning of the following month.

makeup, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

CoverGirl & Olay Simply Ageless Eye Concealer
This concealer is made for under the eyes; on me, it creased badly under the eyes.  But I use this everywhere else on my face it works great.  The concealer provides great coverage and it's swirled with Olay moisturizer; it's the most moisturizing concealer I've ever tried.

Prestige BrowPerfection Marbleized Brow Pencil
I was tired of paying $15 for my go-to brown pencil, MAC Fling, every few months.  I found this just for $4.00!  It works just as good, if not better than MAC. Unfortunately, it isn't mechanical.  However, it does have a lot more product compared to MAC. I really like that it's double ended pencil and brush; it makes filling in my eyebrows a lot faster.

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer: Color Correcting Adjust
Lately, my face has had random red, blotchy spots.  I dislike foundation and it was getting to the point where I was caking on concealer.  I decided I needed to cancel out the redness rather than just attempting to cover it.  I used the original formula of Smashbox Photo Finish awhile back and liked it, so I decided to pick up the green one.  Originally, I purchased the smaller tube; I used it a few times and really liked it.  Although it's a lot more pricey, I realized the larger tube is a better value - so I returned the small one and purchased the larger one.  It's great at canceling out all the redness on my face, it minimizes pores, and it makes my face feel really silky smooth allowing a flawless makeup application.  The primer also acts a wind barrier, which is great for the cold weather.
