With tonight being the last home basketball game for my beloved alma mater, the Iowa State Cyclones, I almost forgot to post about my favorites for February! After an exciting and bittersweet win over OSU (the seniors’ last home game ever *tears*), I remembered tomorrow is March…oops!

There are SO many great items I’ve been using lately, but there are a few that I just kept reaching for. These items range from permanent faves to new faves, and even stuff I’m just having a “moment” with…lol!

Anywho, here they are:


NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer– I love this because it has a perfect amount of coverage when I want something lighter, and because it doubles as sun protection.  It goes on easily, and lasts almost the entire day when set with powder.  Also, I won’t let myself buy the new Velvet formula until I use this up…lol!  You can get it at Nordstrom, just click the banner below to get free shipping and free returns all the time, NO minimum!  You can also get it directly from NARS, just click the banner to get some freebies!

728x90 April TOA: STAREDOWN

em by Michelle Phan Valentine Life Palette in Secret Admirer– I reviewed this palette here, and while I felt the pigmentation was very inconsistent, I kept grabbing this palette almost on a daily basis.  The colors are not only gorgeous, but they are well-coordinated, and they blend SO easily.  You can get the palette at emcosmetics.com.  You can also sign up for Ipsy, and get products through them!

Manna Kadar 3-in-1 Shadow, Highlight & Blush in Fantasy– I got this awesome product from Beauty Box 5, and being so busy lately, it’s been a lifesaver!  The formula is a great multi-tasker, and easily buildable.  Love, love, love, love!  You can read my full review here.  It’s available at mannakadarcosmetics.com.

Diorshow Mascara– This is my favorite mascara for every day wear.  It gives the perfect amount of length and volume without looking overly “done” or fake.  Plus, it doesn’t clump, flake, or weigh down my lashes, and it lasts all day.  There’s a reason this is the fave of runway makeup artists!  If you’re in the Shreveport, Louisiana area, you can get this from Troycie at Dillard’s in St. Vincent.  If you’re not in the area, you can get it at Nordstrom- click the banner below to get free shipping and returns, all the time, with NO minimum!

Starlooks Custom Lip Liner in Sultry Sangria–  This is another fab find from Beauty Box 5- you can read my full review here.  The formula glides on easily, and the color is so versatile it will go with almost anything.  Check out starlooks.com or beautybox5shop.com for more info.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil in Cranberry–  Bite Beauty is one of my fave lipstick brands ever.  This shade is very wearable and it’s about as pink as I get…lol!  I wore a nude lipstick over it, and got the most stunning shade!!  You can get it at Sephora.
