It’s only fitting that for the short month of February that I only had a few favorite beauty products.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray | As I mentioned in my last beauty empties post, I’m thrilled that drugstore brands are finally releasing setting sprays. This one in particular is an exact dupe for the Urban Decay setting sprays at half the cost (around $13.99 if you don’t have a coupon). I use a setting spray both before and after I apply my liquid face products, kind of like a primer, and I haven’t had any issues with makeup wearing off during the day or having to touch-up with powder. I highly recommend this product if you’re new to setting sprays or are looking for a drugstore alternative to the higher-end products.
Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in 235 Warm Me Up | You guys – this is the PERFECT shade of lipstick. I imagine it would look good on nearly anybody. It’s the ultimate your-lips-but-better color – it’s not quite pink, but not quite nude, just somewhere perfectly in between.
L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Privee Lipstick in 600 Doutzen’s Nude | I believe this collection of lipsticks has been out for quite some time, but it randomly caught my eye at Target one day with the advertisement of all their famous spokeswomen. I’d been looking for a light baby doll-pink lipstick, and this one inspired by Doutzen Kroes fits the bill. If I want just a sheer swipe of lipstick, I’ll wear this on it’s own; otherwise, it can be layered with a light pink liner and a sheer gloss for an extra pop.
Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner Pencil | Unless I’m going out or it’s a special occasion, I haven’t been wearing much eyeshadow. Instead, I’ve opted for this creamy liner smudged into my top lashes for a bit of definition and drama. It requires minimal effort on my end, but it still looks like I made an effort.
American Eagle Outfitters Vintage Perfume | I’ve had a rollerball of this perfume for a few years, and it has become one of my all-time favorite scents for the fall and winter months. The best way that I can describe it is that it smells just like the store itself, but with a little bit more musk. Ryan surprised me with a full bottle of it for Valentine’s Day (even though we said no gifts …), and I’ve been wearing it everyday since.
