February Favourites | 2016

So February flew by and before I knew it, we are now in the middle of March and I have not put up my February Favourites for you guys... but now were here, better late than never right. February was a very busy month between my two jobs and home life, to heres to March slowing down a little bit and having a little bit more time to set aside for you lovely people, because I feel bad neglecting my blog and everything around it. Anyways without anymore of my rambling lets get into my February Favourites

Mac Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Sin
I absolutely love this lipstick colour, its a nice deep blue red. The fact it is cool toned works great with my skin tone, even though were coming into spring now I still really love dark bold lips, but I am sure once we actually get into spring I'll go back to liking nudes, and more mauvey types of colours. I think they only thing I dislike about this lipstick is the fact its very drying, most matte lipsticks are though so they kind of go hand in hand, but as long as you exfoliate your lips and use a lip balm before you apply it, you should be golden!

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray
For only being about $10 this setting spray is pretty good, it keeps my makeup matte and helps with its lasting power. Whenever I am on a budget I always get this from my local drugstore because its cheaper than my Loreal Infalliable Setting Spray, and they are very similar this one is just cheaper which is always a plus for me!

Moroccanoil Treatment Light
I cannot explain how much I love this product, I have been using it religiously for years, and then I took a break for a bit ( I'm still not sure why) and I recently started using it again and have fallen in love with it again. The smell is amazing. I use the light formula because my hair is so fine, but it absorbs instantly when my hair is wet and when I use this when my hair is dry it only takes a few minutes to absorb. I use this multiple times a day and it never ceases to work perfectly. A girl I work with always says, if I could bathe in Moroccanoil I probably would. 

Redken Pillow Proof Blow-dry Express Primer
This is my favourite product to start my haircare routine with, its a primer so its the first product that is used, and then everything else follows. This primer is fantastic because it makes your hair dry up to 30% faster and it has a heat protectant in it. Some of the benefits of this spray is heat protection up to 450 degrees, anti breakage and it cuts blow-dry time. This is a great first step in my haircare routine.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Spearmint Lip Velour Lip Scrub
One my friends gave this too me one day a while back and I wanted to finish up my Lush lip scrub before breaking out this one, and I have to say I absolutely love it. Its a little bit rougher than the Lush one but that is perfectly ok with me considering I live in Canada and its very dry here, so therefore I need to exfoliate my lips and moisturize them very well all the time. This scrub keeps my lips in check at all times!

Morning Skincare Routine

Happy Thursday loves, 

I thought for today I would give you guys a updated skin care routine for mornings because its been a while since I have done one of these and my routine has changed quite a bit in my opinion so here it is!

Neutrogena Rapid Clear All in 1 Daily Scrub
I have been using this scrub every morning for the past few months, and I have to say it has helped my acne quite a bit. I still do have quite a bit of acne on my forehead, and chin area but this has helped quite a bit. I love how it is a exfoliating face wash but it is gentle enough to use every day! 

Clean and Clear Blackhead Cleaning Astringent 
This toner has been my holy grail toner for years now, I have tried other ones and they just don't seem to have the same affect on my skin as this one does. I think I will keep using this for years to come. I find it to be quite gentle on my skin and that is definitely a plus for me. 

Garnier Ulta Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream
I got this in a product box I used to order and decided to start using it because I'm trying to start using up all the products I've been holding on to. I quite like this eye cream, I don't know if its going to be a holy grail product for me but it does a really good job on moisturizing my under eyes and that is all good with me, especially because having moisturized under eyes makes my concealer crease less! 

Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery
This is a fantastic facial moisturizer, I have been using it for the past month and its been amazing. It has a spf of 50 which is fantastic because UV rays can be very hard on your face. This is a anti-aging facial moisturizer with polypeptides that encourage collagen producing activities. I think this is going to become a holy grail product for me even though I have not been using it for very long I love it. 

Blistex Lip Medex
Every skincare routine also needs to have a fantastic lip balm and this Blistex lip balm is my favourite. I have them stashed all over my house and I am always using this during the day. Living in Canada we have a very dry climate so a standup lip balm is necessary and this one is fantastic for being just that! 

If you guys can think of any other products I should try and add into my routine please let me know!

Until next time xo
