I was going to write about Nutella today. But then I realized that it's the last day of this short and sweet month, and there are some beauty gems that need to be included in a monthly favorites post!
My skin has behaved very well throughout February, and I attribute that to the (re)discovery of two new products. This month I was recommended the REN Hydra-Calm Global Protection Day Cream for my sensitive skin, and it's the perfect formulation and consistency: even though it contains shea butter, it's not too heavy for my combination-oily skin and works well as a base under makeup. I raved about it more here. I've also ditched night cream in favor of a few drops of Josie Maran Argan Oil pressed into my face. As I mentioned here, no matter what skin type you are, I really recommend trying argan oil.
For makeup, I've been using my Urban Decay NAKED Basics Palette almost every day to define my eyes ever-so-slightly before applying tarte skinny smolderEYES in "slate" to my upper lash line. Black eyeliner can look a little too harsh on me, so this dark grey is a great alternative. The tarte pencil is buttery soft and pigmented, perfect for a smudgy eyeliner look but not so conducive to a fine, precise line. On my lips, I've been wearing the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in #14 "Fuchsia Filtre," which I talked about a long time ago here. It lasts for ages and fades evenly. I have all of these products on above... just don't mind the "bird's nest" hairdo (Mr. E's words, not mine)!
I enjoy looking down at my hands and seeing something pretty, and this month I've been wearing OPI Nail Lacquer in "OPI Red" (you can see it on me here) and a J. Crew bracelet from my mother.
And now I'm off to eat as much nutella toast as I can justify is "reasonable." Let me know what you've been loving lately!
