February 2016 Beauty & Lifestyle Favourites

It's March and spring is on it's way!! If you're in Canada, don't let last night's snow storm fool you. But before we can celebrate, you know the drill, it's time for another favourites post! Here are some of the things I loved most during the month of February:

Beauty Favourites:
BH Cosmetics Glamorous Blush 10 Color Palette
For some reason I have been using the pale, pinky-peach shade (top row, second on the left) from this palette like it's going out of style. It compliments my fair skin tone and adds a subtle glow that I absolutely love!!


Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
I've been wanting to test this beauty sponge for a while now, hoping it would indeed be a dupe for the coveted beautyblender as many would claim. It's definitely not the same but I do really like it - especially the cheaper price tag! The slanted, flat-shaped edge fits snuggly under the eyes to buff out concealer and it applies foundation flawlessly. The only downside is that it's a little too squishy when wet and seems to absorb more product than I would like. Otherwise, I'm hooked and I will probably be buying many more of these over the years.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague
NYX is finally available at Shoppers Drug Mart! I spotted the display a few weeks ago and could have easily spent too much of my pay cheque. But I didn't! I limited myself to just one item and decided on this beautiful matte lip colour. My favourite way to wear the magenta hue is with minimal makeup - some mascara and golden highlight on the cheekbones.


The formula is a nice creamy, whipped consistency that dries to a matte finish but doesn't suck the moisture from my lips. It's not exactly transfer-proof but does last a fairly long time. I can't wait to pick up some more shades to play with, especially bright ones for spring and summer!

LUSH Pink Flamingo Bubble Bar
My bubble bath stash was pretty non-existant at the beginning of February. To get my fix, I tried using shower gel but it just wasn't the same! During a recent trip to my favourite fresh handmade cosmetics store, I spotted these adorable, neon-pink flamingos and couldn't resist bringing one home with me. It's a reusable bubble bar on a stick and smells almost exactly like PEZ candy.


Lifestyle Favourites:
Alessia Cara
This Canadian artist is killing the music scene lately! My favourite songs of the moment are Wild Things and Outlaws. I actually work from home four days a week, but the one day I do go to the office I have had these songs on repeat!! They make my morning commute on the train and subway much more enjoyable.



Until next time...
