This favorites is a liiiiittttllee late this time around but somehow the weeks are just flying by!
I don’t have too many favorites or makeup favorites this month. Most of the products I’ve been using are old favorites that I’ve already mentioned. But I do have a few things so let me tell you why I love them.
Semi makeup related are makeup brushes and how you care for them. I picked up this IT cosmetics brush a few months ago when Ulta had a special on the IT cosmetics CC Cream. This brush is the IT brushes for Ulta Airbrush Blurring Foundation Brush #101. This brush is a light synthetic brush perfect for blending and buffing in foundation. Whether that is a liquid, cream, or even powder foundation. This brush doesn’t leave streaks in your foundation and just blends seamlessly.
My other new favorite is how I clean all my makeup brushes. Ask anyone with a lot of brushes if they like cleaning them and the answer will probably be No! It used to take me so long to clean my brushes and I hated bending over the bathroom sink to do it. That is until I found the Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner. I was in Sephora and they had the little travel kit available. I picked it up to give it a try and I immediately fell in love. The next day I ordered the larger size from Amazon (I wanted it sooner) and its the only way I clean my brushes now. I pour out a little bit of the solution, dip in your brush (not all the way), and wipe it on a cloth or paper towel until no more residue comes off the brush. The solution also dries very quickly, no need to rinse. Its seriously amazing.
One makeup favorite I do have is a lip gloss. I’ve mentioned how much I love the Lorac Alter Ego lipsticks and lip glosses before. But lately I’ve been reaching for one in particular, the lip gloss in the shade Minimalist. This my-lips-but-better shade just goes with everything. Its not an overly warm shade so it suits a wide range of looks. And since its a gloss its easy to just put it on and I don’t have to worry about it the rest of the day.
My other makeup favorite is the new Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer. I did a whole review on this that you can check out here. I really love this concealer, not just for highlighting but to also conceal spots on my face. Makeup Revolution just announced they are adding 7 new shades to the range which is awesome!
I did a mini review of this on my Instagram (which you should totally follow me if you don’t) and I can’t wait to buy the full size of this product. I got this in one of my recent Sephora Play Box’s and I’ve been in love ever since. It has done wonders for my complexion.
My mom gave me two of these Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Intensive Hand Cream’s for Christmas and it is so good. I hate hand creams that are too oily or just sit on the skin and don’t absorb. This one is so moisturizing and absorbs so quickly and they smell AMAZING.
