Favorites, Top 5s & 10s

February Favorites 2016

So… February has flown by, just like I expected it too. I’ve really been liking my classes this semester, I think I might have talked about that in my January favorite, but I’m too lazy to check. I really have been liking a bunch of products this month. I made it my personal mission to actually use my products. I took a good look at my stuff and I realized I have way too much makeup. I’ll never finish it in my life (probably) I at least want to actually enjoy my products, not just wear it once & then put it away in my makeup drawers to die slowly.

So the first thing is the Vice 4 palette from Urban Decay. I have been using the hell out of the matte shades. I have a 7:30 am class on Mondays (I don’t even know why I took it) and on those days I want a quick swipe of shadow & a thin coat of mascara. My favorite combination is bones on the lid & framed in the crease, then I’ll smudge some eyeliner out. I did an eotd with this palette, which you can see here

My corpse like qualities come out during the semester, what is sleep ? To counter the fact that I don’t get enough sleep, I have been using the ABH glow kit to add some shine to my face. I fool people into thinking I look healthy, when in reality I’m probably on 4-5 hours of sleep. My favorite shade in the glow kit is Bubbly. It makes me look so radiant, I could cry. I did a review on both glow kits, here

The ABH eyeshadow in Peach Sorbet, does the same job that the glow kit does. Except it’s for my eyes. I’ve been using this shadow in the inner corner to give my eyes a lift. The eyeshadow has a intense shine. I did a post dedicated to these eyeshadows, here

I have been over the moon about Luxie Beauty eyeshadows. I’ve been using them with other eyeshadows that I have and been creating some really great looks with them. My favorites for this month are 56, 164, & 105. I did win these in a giveaway that Boxycharm was having.

The M.A.C Viva Glam Ariana Grande is my favorite VG that has come out. I love the lipstick and the lipgloss is so pretty. I actually want to wear lipgloss when I see it. I love pairing the lipstick with some winged liner and fluffy lashes. I’m not a fan of them together, I don’t like the feeling of lipstick and lip gloss mixed.

Those were my star products for the month of February. I’ve been loving a bunch of new things that I’ll be sure to review here on the blog. SO many products and so little time. I’m really excited about YouTube, it’s been a little bit weird trying to get used to talking to a camera and figuring out editing on IMovie. If you haven’t checked out my YouTube channel, please do so and leave a comment telling me that you’re from the blog.

♥XOXO♥, Crystal Emme
