New year, new name. Monthly Favorites have been the solid mainstay of every blog, like mine. It’s one segment in every blogger that I look forward to come every first week of the month. That sneaky feeling of coveting someone’s favorite and trying them out to see how well it really works. If you’re lucky, you could find a gem and share it also to your friends. If not, you try to figure out where you’ve gone wrong. That at least for me. You might find some products familiar since maybe it’s also included in your lists. So for the month of January-February combined, here are my picks.
Pink Sugar Our ‘lil Secret Concealer
Making on the lists of Preview’s top beauty picks of 2016, this concealer didn’t really caught me at first use I should say. The romance didn’t work beacuse I find it too drying and tight causing to crease in every place that I put it. I was at the brink of handing it to someone that will find it of best use but I stopped myself. I had this habit of giving a product some rest upon it’s first use or prior to opening. I don’t know if you also do this but sometimes when these products were given some enough shelf time before you use it again, they seem to work pretty much effective than they originally do. If that makes sense. So on the second time around, this was already my baby. I use it to conceal my under eyes since the shade that I choose is a bit lighter than my tone. They still tend to dry up into patches but I know my trick now. Dabbing it with a lil moisturizer or moisturize the area that you are suppose to use this to avoid caking. And it also helps that I apply it using a beauty blender.
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream
BB Creams doesn’t really do well on my face. Aside that it’s too oily, I couldn’t find any that will give a good coverage. I usually would end having breakouts after using failing me on the attempt of finding the perfect one. And so I gave up thinking that BB Creams would just only work well for those who have semi-perfect skin or the younger ones who only has a little imperfections. No large pores like mine. So when I found of last year that a lot of my favorite vlogger who also has the oily skin type as mine, swore by this product I quickly added it on my wish list. But I still have to lower my expectations and don’t give in right away and find a at least trial size first so I wouldn’t cry that much in the end. Indeed this by far has lived up to my hopes and expectations. What to love about this product is that it makes you skin radiant and glowing that no other bb creams that I tried hsas given me. The perfect dew that keeps your skin looking healthy not oily.
Garnier Miscellar Water
I guess you could say that I’ve been living under the rock for sometime now. Yes, I do wanted to have a miscellar water to help me with my makeup. But with the height of it and the countless brands in the market, my chosy self is the main culprit why I took so long. I really haven’t gotten any to at least try on and base my comparison. I just simply jumped into the best. So far, their complaints would be stinging especially in getting off that eye makeup which I really hate. And I guess my long wait has paid off when I chose Garnier. The only down side is that it couldn’t help on taking off my Heroine Make Mascara.
Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara
I have a very sparse and short eyelashes and my eyes hurt whenever I use a mascara. I really would love falsies but I couldn’t perfect putting them on just yet. So I wonder if there is a mascara that would have a similar effect as putting those falsies on. And yes there is and I found it in Heroine Make. I love that it could really make your lashes look naturally longer in a long, really long period of time without wearing off or smudging. Proof to it is that no makeup remover can get this thing off your eyes. You really need to buy their mascara remover.
Ipuda Facial Masks
Ipuda may not be your leading masks as for the quality of sheets per se but the thing is for me, a good masks is the one who is soaked in an overflowing serum which suprisingly I found in this product. I often had so much left from the serum that I soak another facial sheet tablet ( available in Daiso, Mumuso and Miniso) in it and it’s good for another use.What to love more is that this is so affordable that you won’t have any trouble stacking and following the Korean skin care routine every night with this.
Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint
I recently did a review on this lip tint and from the moment of purchase it was love at first use. I must say that OR01 is surprisingly my favourite amongst three even if it’s RD01’s the main reason why I bought this was. One of the lip tints that didn’t gave me a chappy lips after a day long use. It’s also nice to have these cute little wine bottles in your makeup kit.
I wish to add more unfortunately I lost track of the products in my vanity. But surely I’ll be seeing you again next month and let’s have fun counting a lengthy list.
