I haven't done a monthly favorites post in what seems like ages, so i figured i'd try and start doing them again. Not making any promises though! ;) These products are either newer ones that i've just discovered & have really liked or old favorites that i've rediscovered over the past month.
What have you been loving this month?
♥ Dove Heat Defense Therapy conditioner. This is one of the products i've rediscovered. I used to use this everyday but i realized that it was contributing to the product buildup in my hair. I put off using it for a long time, but have come back to it. It makes my hair smooth & helps protect my hair from the heat. I generally use this on the days i blow-dry my hair (i usually shower at night & leave my hair to air dry). This is the old packaging of this conditioner, but this stuff is still available!
♥ Favorite mascara combination. I've been loving super thick, dark lashes this past month (well, every month really!) and these two products together help achieve the look. Clinique's High Impact mascara is my favorite mascara i've ever tried, but in tandem the sample of Lancome's Definicils mascara, it's even better. I probably won't buy the full size of the Lancome mascara as i'm not made of money haha, but i'll enjoy the little sample while it lasts :)
♥ Favorite eyeshadow combination. I've been finding it hard to get out of bed & putting the effort into looking super done up this past month. But to prevent looking like a total mess, finding a quick & easy makeup routine in the morning was an essential. Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in RSVP (review here) was something i ordered from Sephora a little before Christmas and MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow is an old favorite of mine. I put two layers of RSVP all over my lid & into my crease (as a base & lid color in one) and using a MAC 217 brush, i put Satin Taupe in the crease & build it up into the outer v. Both quick & easy, but it looks nice and put together.
Clinique cream eyeliner. We'll see how that goes!
♥ Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes. This was one of the products i purchased in my recent skincare haul & since then, i've been able to try them out for a while. Many of you commented on that post saying you loved these and they didn't disappoint! These are really gentle on my skin & get my makeup off really well. The towelettes are actually pretty big & since i'm quite cheap i cut them in half and find that's enough to do the job! I use these to remove my makeup when the day's done, before i cleanse my face. If i'm feeling particularly lazy, i'll just quick wipe my face with these, apply a bit of moisturizer, and go to bed! Love these.
