So it’s been awhile again, I am at my parents babysitting the dogs while they are on vacation, and I still will be when I post my next post, (which I have already written.) so my opening paragraph may be similar.
I didn’t buy anything in January and I only bought a few things in February, I wasn’t planning on buying anything but then my mascara went bad and almost gave me an eye infection, it was red for like two days so I threw it away and bought a new one. Well while I was there I got a few things. This is not going to be a long post because it was only three new things and a tried and true favorite.
I am just going to briefly mention the tried and true favorite, it is also the thing that expired and made me look like I had pink eye for a day and a half. My NYX Worth the Hype mascara, I still love it because normally I am not a person who will purchase a full sized mascara anymore, if it is a prestige brand I tend to lean toward the travel sized products just because once you open a mascara they have such a short shelf life before they go bad and when you spend so much money on a product you can only use for a few months.
Next, onto the new things, so Colourpop is now in my Ulta and I am excited to be able to see the products in person instead of looking online and hoping that I get colors right. So I got Colourpop’s No Filter Concealer in I think the shade Fair 02. I have heard mixed reviews on their concealer but I like the shade range because the shade that I got is lighter than most of the concealers that I have seen on the market.
A few months ago I got a sample size of the All-Nighter Setting Spray from Urban Decay and they have a display of them on the counter in my Ulta so as am impulse buy I purchased the travel size because I really enjoy the setting spray. I don’t wear setting spray every day but when I do I reach either for that one or for my Colourpop All-Star Setting Spray.
Last but not least I have been experimenting with facial oils and I decided to pick up another one to try out. I have very sensitive combination skin and I always have to be really careful with the combination of products that I put on my face but I like Pacificia, I used their makeup wipes for quite some time while I was in college so when I saw their Flower Power Rapid Response facial oil. It has rose and blue tansy and I know that my face doesn’t react to rose and I was excited to see that. I can only use it about once a day or sometimes even once every other day because of my skin but it has been a really great addition to my skin care routine.
Did anyone else get anything new in beauty in February? Is there anything you are currently coveting when it comes to skin care and beauty?
I’ll be around with another post Saturday, so I’ll see everyone then!

Some great picks it sounds like!
Mascara going bad is SUCH a pain.
Thank you, that is the first mascara i have ever had that went bad so I was a little surprised but it happens.

Is it really worth the hype?! I stare at it everyday at work and wonder whether I should get it. I’m slowly going to try every single one of them that we sell TBH. I really like the Kush one by Milk that I was using but it leans more towards volume and I so love extra-lengthy mascaras! Which one did you end up getting?
For me it is for sure worth it, the price point isn’t too high so it is great for everyday wear. I actually have a top five mascara post coming out late next week, of my favorites. I know that everyone has different lash concerns so what works for me may not work for you. That is why I tend to get travel or sample sized mascaras to try out before I commit to the full sized product.
