February Beauty Favorites

I'm a little late to the game on this months favorites since it's already March. I apologize again for the lack of posts lately, and I know I said last month that I was kind of meh about doing monthly favorites posts. I didn't have anything else planned or any pictures pre taken, so I picked out a few things this morning that I've been using a lot to share. 


First up is my Too Faced semi sweet Chocolate bar palette that I got last month. I've been using nothing else for eyeshadow since I got this. I'm completely obsessed and it's just my favorite makeup item in the world right now. 

For blush I've been using this one I got in my ipsy bag last month from ModelCo. It's easy and gives a natural flush of pink. I've also been loving the a Maybelline Fit Me matte and Poreless foundation, which I also got last month and did a review on not to long ago. 

For my mascara I've been layering the Urban Decay Perversion with the Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes. I didn't care for the UD one at first but I like it layered with the Maybelline one!

Lastly I wanted to show this super beautiful compact mirror that my friend from work got me while he was in Thailand! I was in such awe when he brought it to me from when he was visiting home in Vietnam last month. It's so pretty and I love how one side has the flowers and the other has the elephant! Random fact about me- I love elephants haha! Anyways I think this is so pretty and I'm starting to collect compacts so I decided to include it in this post!! I also love things from different countries so this is super special to me. 

Thank you all for reading! I promise I'll have more exciting posts up soon!

  1. The compact mirror is so lovely and that is really lovely for your colleague to get you one! I've yet to do a February favourites post, I am such a terrible blogger. LOL!

    I am planning to pick up Maybelline Lash Sensational today, been reading that it's a close dupe for Benefit Roller Lash, have you tried it?

    1. Haha you are not a terrible blogger!! I only did this because I didn't have anything else to do!!

      I love the Maybelline lash sensational!! I will warn you that it's super wet though but after a week it's anazing. I haven't tried the benefit one though but I heard that as well!!

    2. Eeek! I hate super wet mascaras, they make me look like I have 4 lashes on each eye. :-( Will definitely have to let it dry a little first.

  3. I would love to get my hands on that palette. I'm so glad that the maybellines foundation worked so well for you, I am still a little scared to purchase it because of the original fit me foundation, besides, I'm quite happy with my rimmel foundation, so why fix something when it's not broken? That compact mirror is SO cute. I love them, they are so handy to have :)

  4. Beautiful compact and it's GOOD LUCK because the elephant's trunk is UP! So pretty! Glad you're loving your Too Faced eyeshadows. The pigmentation is awesome. I didn't think about layering mascara. I think that is so cool. Just great products Ashley. Have a great weekend doll.

  9. Does elephants have anything to do with Cage the Elephant, haha ;) Glad to see you're enjoying your semisweet chocolate bar palette - people either seem to hate it or love it. I've definitely been enjoying its sister palette!
