February Favorites

I'm back again with a few of my favorite products for February and with that comes a new giveaway!

I recently did a review of these amazingly well crafted, stylish product that's great for holding pan-cosmetics. You can find out more about these palettes by following the link to my review and you can enter my giveaway to win your own UNII Palette HERE!

Available for purchase on

Hard Candy Sheer Envy Face Primer

I've been using this primer for a majority of February and I really do like it. It works really well for helping my foundation apply effortlessly and wear longer; plus, you can't beat the $8 price tag! For my review of this product,including info on where to buy it, please go HERE.

MAC Trace Gold Blush

I've had this blush for a while now but lately I've been using it nearly every day. It's just the most perfect neutral color that goes with any makeup look be it natural, smokey, or bright.

Available at MAC counters and stores, as well as on the MAC website.

Seche Vite Top Coat

This is, hands down, the best top coat I've ever tried. I'm personally completely incapable of sitting still while my nails dry. Every time I give myself a manicure or pedicure, I mess up my nail polish within the first 5 minutes. During those rare times that I don't ruin it, and the polish *seems* dry, it turns out it's not and it ends up a mess anyway. Basically, I have problems with nail polish. Or shall I say "had." Seche Vite is seriously fast drying. If you haven't tried it, do it now! After 2 or 3 coats of nail polish just wait about 5 minutes, and then apply a coat of the Seche Vite. Moments later your nails will be 100% dry.

Available at Ulta and Sally's Beauty Supply; or you can Google it to find it online.

Benefit She Laq

I've been using this makeup sealer a lot lately to make my own liquid liners with loose pigments and it works wonders. With She Laq the liner becomes waterproof and lasts all day fading, transferring, or flaking off.

Available at Benefit counters, Ulta, and
