First we have MAC lipsticks, a definite favorite of mine. I'll probably always mention one or two. My February shades are Shy Girl and Party Parrot. I mentioned them in my MAC Haul post. Because it feels like spring here, I thought it was time to brighten up my makeup looks.
|Party Parrot (Matte)- Bright pinky coral|
|Shy Girl (Cremesheen)- Peachy nude|
I had a bit of a splurge at Sephora before my strict budget was a thing. I immediately headed to where the Bobbi Brown color corrector was. I knew I needed that, I have awful under eye circles even though I get almost 10 hours of sleep a night (when homework isn't calling my name). Drinking water is the other part of the equation, which I should have more of, but until I get into that habit, the color corrector does wonders for me.

One problem I had with this box is it doesn't fit in my makeup bag, which makes bringing it on trips a bit more difficult. I still brought it with me to California, but it is too bulky for my taste. I'll definitely be purchasing the regular Coralista blush which I will hopefully have a bit of an easier time with.
My final face favorite of February (say that five times fast) was the St. Ives Apricot Scrub. It's oil free, which is fantastic for my oily t-zone and really does leave your skin feeling so soft and looking radiant. Plus it smells pretty good.
My final favorite is the Kiko Milano nail polish in a sea foam green.
It's an absolutely gorgeous color and it lasts for ages. I picked this up while I was in Italy last summer along with some other colors and I'm in love. The makeup at Kiko is super affordable. There is a downside though, one that makes me want to cry a little. They don't ship to the US as far as I know. You're in luck if you live in Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Portugal or the UK though! I'm extremely jealous of you if you have access to Kiko products.
Is it worth a trip back to Italy for this nail polish? Probably not. Is it still a great product that I'll get when I have the chance? Definitely!
So those are my February Faves, sorry it's mid-March when you're reading this. I have lots of exciting posts in the works right now though, so stay tuned!
