February Favorites | Everything I Have Been Loving

February is here and so are my February favorites! These are some products I loved all throughout February (and before then), and I wanted to share with you! Find my must-have haircare, lipsticks, foundation, and bronzer. If you're looking for new products to try, my February favorites is the perfect place to start.

The end of a month and the beginning of a new one can only mean one thing… Monthly Favorites! I haven’t done one of these in a while so I thought I’d share the products that I have been loving recently. These are not just February-specific, but products that have been my go-to the last couple of months. I love learning what others love so make sure you share your February favorites in the comments! In today’s post, I will be sharing some makeup and hair care products. If there’s any other type of “favorites” you’d like to see, make sure to let me know. Now, on to my February favorites!

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray

Recently, I have been obsessed with Briogeo products. I previously reviewed their exfoliating shampoo and deep conditioning mask, and I have now tried this leave-in conditioner. This time, I was looking for something that would detangle my hair after I washed it. My hair gets so tangled up, I want to prevent as much breakage as possible. Before this, I had been using the Davines Oi All in One Milk and that worked great. This Briogeo Leave-In conditioner makes my hair so soft, it smells amazing and makes brushing my hair so much easier. It deserved a place in my February favorites. If you’re looking for a product that will detangle your hair, check this one out!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I am not going to say much about this one as I have mentioned it multiple times on my blog, but this bronzer is amazing. It is not super pigmented which makes it easy to work with. They’ve also released additional shades in the last couple of months. It smells like a trip to the beach. If you haven’t tried it yet, make sure you do.

The Ordinary Serum Foundation

When I reviewed these, I wasn’t too crazy about the Serum foundation, but it has been my go-to foundation lately. I love how natural it looks, and how well it works with all the other products I use. In that review, I also shared my thoughts on the Coverage foundation, so if you’re curious about these make sure to check it out!

Grande Cosmetics Lash Primer & Lash MD

I was lucky enough to win these on a giveaway hosted on Instagram. The prize was the Grande Mascara, the Grande Primer, and the GrandeLASH Enhancing Serum. The mascara is good, but what I have been really loving is the primer. This primer makes every mascara look bomb. I’ve used it with several, and they all look amazing. I can’t even explain how wonderful it is. The other Grande product I have been loving, is the lash enhancing serum. I can definitely see a difference in my lashes in the month or so that I have been using it. It is recommended to be used for three months straight, so we will see how it goes. If you have short lashes, or not very full lashes, I definitely recommend you give these a go!

Buxom Cosmetics Va-Va-PLUMP Shiny Liquid Lipstick

This is another product I won in an Instagram giveaway. I had a lucky streak for a while, but you should definitely participate in these! There’s no need to comment a hundred times. I commented once for each of these and won. These lipsticks are amazing. They have the shine of a gloss, but without the stickyness. They have the pigment of a matte lipstick, without the dryness. It is the perfect formula in my opinion. I love how they feel on my lips and the fact that it doesn’t feel like my lips are falling off at the end of the night. My favorite shade (I was gifted three) is Getting Warmer. I love a brownish nude.

Pixi Beauty MatteLast Liquid Lip

I received five of these lipsticks in my first PR package. I was so excited when I saw the Pixi box. I’ve been a fan of Pixi products for a while, mainly their skincare, but I was so excited to try these. If you haven’t seen these before, these are a recent addition to Pixi’s collection. They are infused with rosehip oil, smell amazing, and wear beautifully. As any matte lipstick, they are still a tiny bit drying, but nothing too horrible. I love wearing these on an everyday basis. The shades that are currently available are very subtle and natural. If you’ve been looking for a good matte liquid lipstick from the drugstore I would recommend these or the Physicians Formula Healthy Lip.

Have you tried anything on my February favorites? I’d love to know what you have been loving recently. Make sure to comment one of your February favorites below! Also, I don’t try enough new products each month so this won’t be a recurring thing, but let me know if you like this type of posts!

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼

Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
•
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
•
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
•
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
•
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
•
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
•
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!

@sephora @saturday_skin #sephora #saturdayskin #OctolyFamily
  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.

What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?

Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
