February Beauty Favorites:NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, L'oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation, Makeup Geek Contour Powder in Break Up, Niva Sensitive Post Shave Balm and Morphe E53 brush

February has come and gone! That means I can share the beauty products I have been loving this month. I feel like I've been trying (and buying...) a lot of new makeup this month. So I'm excited to share with you the items that have been really been working for me!

This month I have been loving the NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve, and let me tell you, this blush is stunning! It has a beautiful sheen that gives a healthy and gorgeous color to the cheeks. You can play with the range of colors in this to get a lighter or darker color. I love the feel and pigmentation of this, I have to try other shades!

The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer has been a much-loved product in the beauty community- and for good reason. I only own a deluxe size, but I love how this works on the under eyes. It really conceals my dark circles, without creasing. 

The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara has been my go-to mascara this month! This has been a mascara I use for my quick eye looks. Without much effort it adds a ton of volume and length to my lashes. It also doesn't flake during the day- which is a bonus!

The L'oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation has been the foundation I have been trying and using all month long! I have a full review you can read if you want all the details!

OMG. GUYS. The Makeup Geek Contour Powder (mine is in Break Up) contour powder has been my love this month! They have a ton of shades for every skin tone and undertone. It's super soft, which makes it easy to blend. Basically, my contour has been amazing this month.

For some new readers, this may seem strange, but the Nivea Sensitive Post Shave Balm has been my favorite primer for the month. I know it's weird. A men's after shave as a primer? YES! A little drop of this creates a perfect base for my makeup which keeps me matte and my makeup in place. You can look up on Google a ton of reviews if you would like more info! Bonus? It's super affordable!

My last favorite is the Morphe E53 brush. This has been my favorite multitasking brush. The shape of this is flat, pointed, but fluffy. That makes it great for blush, contour and setting under the eyes or any other areas of the face. The Elite collection from Morphe is amazing quality, so this brush is super soft.

  26. The Too Faced mascara is my holy grail. I've tried so many mascaras, but nothing compares to it. I use the Nivea primer every day, and I don't see myself changing any time soon. The MUG Contour Powders are a god send for us fair skin folks. I have Break Up as well and it's amazing.
