February Favorites

I feel like it was just yesterday that we were all celebrating New Years and now we're in March already.  WHERE HAS TIME GONE?  Seriously though.  Enough about that let's get onto my February Favorites.  I went back to school in mid-january so since then I've been wearing minimum amount of makeup to go to class, that will explain the little amount of makeup products that I have for this month.

Beauty Favorites

Maybelline The Falsies Flared Mascara:  I did a review on this mascara in a previous post.  I basically raved about how much I LOVE it and I've been using it religiously since then.  Mascara Review.

Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer:  Like I previously stated I've been wearing very little makeup this month.  This concealer has been my "foundation" for the last couple of weeks.  When going to class I really don't feel like wearing my higher end foundations so I just wear this under my eyes and the problem areas of my face.  Then I set it with my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish which also gives me a little bit more coverage.  I really do like this concealer, it does the job.  I will be repurchasing this again.  

L'oreal After Hours Nail Polish:  I also did a post on this polish,  I feel like this is the perfect dark shade for year round.  I find myself wearing this constantly.

Up & Up Nail Polish Remover:  I bought this from Target recently and it's an acetone remover.  As much as I love painting my nails, I wouldn't switch up colors as often because I would hate to remove my nail polish since it would take forever, specially when using dark shades.  Now with this acetone remover it's SO EASY removing nail polish, you just dip your finger in the container and it's gone.  I'm constantly changing up my nail color now.  

Boots Expert Anti-Blemish Cleanser:  Oh how I wish I lived in the UK, so I could be able to buy from all the different beauty brands that they have available.  I bought this from Target since they have a few (probably like 2 or 3) British brands available.  This foaming cleanser I find it very similar to the foaming cleanser by Clinique.  I used the Clinique cleanser like two years ago when I had really bad acne, and it really did help A LOT with clearing up the acne I had.  I find the Boots cleanser as a pretty good dupe for the Clinique cleanser.  It has been clearing up the few acne issues I have at the moment.

Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Refreshing Toner:  I love this for removing my makeup (except eye makeup) and then after I use the foaming cleanser that I mentioned above to wash my face. 

When I watch or read other's favorites I always enjoy it when they mention other things that aren't beauty related.  Since this is my first favorites post I thought it would be a good idea to show you other things that I have been enjoying this past month. 


One Way Or Another by One Direction:  One Direction made a cover of this song for the official single of Comic Relief.  All the proceeds of this song go to Comic Relief which is a charity that helps those in need in Africa & the UK.  I really like how they added their own special twist to the song.

Champagne Supernova by Oasis:  This song links to one of my favorite t.v. shows for this month.  All I will say is that Arnold Peters made me rock out to this song.  I hope at least one person reading this knows what I'm talking about.

Mirrors by Justin Timberlake:  I first heard this song when JT performed it at the Brit Awards.  I've never really been a fan of his but I fell in LOVE with this song when I saw him perform it.  The lyrics are beautiful and I must say Jessica Biel is one lucky girl.

T.V. Shows

Scrubs:  I have been OBSESSED with this show, it's all I've been watching on Netflix for the past few weeks.

My Mad Fat Diary:  A British t.v. show which is based on the book "My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary" by Rae Earl.  I found out about this show through the many GIF's that were going around in my tumblr timeline.  The series follows teenage Rae as she recently was released from a psychiatric hospital, after she attempted to hurt herself.  It's so upsetting that series one only has six episodes.  I'm now anxiously waiting for series two.  Since this show is only aired in the UK, I watched all of the episodes on Youtube if anyone outside of the UK is interested. Champagne Supernova was played on the series finale.
