February Beauty Favorites

links + small things


Let’s look back at a few of my beauty favorites from February!

Nails: dip powder in Lisbon Wants Moor plus chrome powder over top! This is my most worn color and my absolute favorite!

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench – I used this moisturizer years ago and then switched only because I wanted to try something else. I’m back to using it regularly and am reminded that it’s such a unique moisturizer because it sinks into the skin so effortlessly. It almost feels watery when you apply it!

Bobbi Brown Face Base – On particularly drier days, or days I’m wearing full coverage makeup, I’ll use this for an extra burst of moisture and prep!

Garnier Micellar Water – This is such an effective yet gentle makeup remover, especially for around my eyes. Somehow it melts away long lasting eye makeup without stinging my eyes.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Sheer long-wear in 3C2 – This is working for me as a light makeup day foundation. I was using a tinted moisturizer but I found it to be irritating my skin, so I tried this and have had great results. It’s very sheer, but does provide a flexible and layerable bit of color to even out my skin!

Kate McLeod Body Stone + Kate McLeod Body Stone Mini – This body stone is super hydrating and I’ve been loving it through the winter. It glides across my skin when I apply it right out of the shower too. It makes a really great gift as well!

Laura Mercier Tinted Bronzer (this was a dud for me!) – I ended up returning this because I just couldn’t get it to work after multiple tries. The color was nice but the formula was patchy!

Bumble and Bumble Spray de Mode hairspray – This is a very flexible, forgiving hairspray. I like it for relaxed hair days and when I just need a touch of hold.

Hourglass Lipstick in Reef – This coral color is such a fun, punchy pink for spring!

Thanks for your post!!
My question is how does the PTR water drench compare to the fresh youth preserve night recovery and lotus moisturizer you have used in the past?
I started using that sometime back based on your recommendation. I’m just wondering if it’s time for me to switch it up as I’m currently out of all my fresh cream now and feel with the season change coming on it might just be the right time. (East TN weather is a lot like Raleigh)
