Beauty Scoped…February 2013


This month actually dragged for me and I don’t know why considering its the shortest month of the year. Eh. However, this month, I really became borderline obsessed with beauty and skin care products. Here are few beauty-related items that I was really obsessed with this month.

  1. Lancome ‘Blush In Love – Peche Joue-Joue’ blush, $49 – Spring is almost here and the need for a new perfectly peach blush has arrived, too. This blush from Lancome’ is designed to compliment all skintones with just the right amount of light peach and deep coral. It’s beautiful in person.
  2. Caudalie Hand and Nail Cream, $15 – My cuticles have really been hating me recently. They are dry and crack, no matter how much or many moisturizing I introduce to them, with the exception of this hand cream by Caudalie. Not only does it nourish your hands and nails, but it also acts as an anti-aging cream for your hands. Did you know that your hands can be a tell-tale sign of your age? Well, it is, so think about that!
  3. MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation, $36 – I’m on the hunt for a new foundation. Well, I’ve actually been on this hunt for the past few months, but I’ve been coming up empty handed with bottles and tubes of foundations that don’t give me the coverage I desire and/or agree with my crazy combo skin. Hopefully, this new powder foundation by MUFE will be the one. I just ordered this and can’t to try it! You can apply it wet or dry and it has buildable coverage, which always comes in handy for me and my bi-polar, semi-acne probe skin.
  4. Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat, $30 – When it comes to my nails in the spring and summer, I usually rock bright pinks and the occasional neon shades or orange or yellow. However, there are times when I just want to sport a clean and natural nail, but that can be hard when all those fun colors I mentioned before leaves behind yellow tinted nails. This pink gel coat seems like something I need to add to my nail polishes and treatments collection. The gel creates a sheer pink coating that not only strengthens and hardens your natural nails, but also gives your nails a barrier while bringing out the natural shades of pink and white in your own nails. I need to get this!
  5. Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Foundation, $27 – Did I mention that I’m looking for a new foundation? Well, I’ve used this foundation in the past and from what I remember, it was pretty great. It helps prevent acne while giving you a soft and natural look and glow. I might need to pick this up again.
  6. Pond’s Rejuveness Anti-wrinkle Cream, $11.99 – This is another product that I’ve used. Actually, I’m using it now and it’s been amazing to me and my skin. I bought the small travel size for $1 at Walmart and I use it day and night and still have plenty left. It gives  my skin just the right amount of moisture with leaving a greasy film or interferes with my make-up application. This is probably the best drugstore anti-aging moisturizer I’ve ever tried and I will definitely be buying the regular size as soon as I run out of the the travel size.

Stay Stylish!
