Current Beauty Obsessions - February 2016

Hey friends! Here are some beauty products I'm currently crushing on. Each of them have been used over and over by yours truly, and I'm going to tell you why I love them so much.

L'Oreal Magic Lumi Cushion Foundation: Wow, that's a mouthful! This foundation starts with a light, dewy coverage but you can easily build it up (without looking cakey) if you want more coverage. I find that it's long lasting (super quick to apply) and makes your skin look great.

Maybelline Brow Drama Gel Mascara: I may have talked about this before, because I've been using it quite a while and really, really love it. They have a clear version, and tinted versions (I use soft brown) and it grooms your brows nicely, keeps them in place all day and (as long as you aren't too heavy handed) looks completely natural, not like the overly sculpted, overly "done" eyebrows I see all over Instagram. I do the Subscribe and Save option through Amazon, and have it delivered every two months. Doing it this way is always about $1.50 cheaper than buying it at Target, and makes it so I never run out.

SkinFix lip repair balm: This one is newer to my arsenal, but it's fantastic. Just a deeply moisturizing, unscented lip balm. It's made with coconut oil and keeps my lips hydrated for hours. I also swipe it on right before I go to bed.

Ciate London lipstick in Praline: This color has been on heavy rotation with me for months now. It is so long lasting (without being at all drying) and the color is gorgeous. The website described it as a "deep, rich nude" and that's exactly what it is. If I'm having a minimal makeup day (maybe some light foundation, and a swipe of mascara) I'll just put this beautiful lipstick on and I feel instantly polished.

Hello Kitty for OPI Laquer in Let's Be Friends: I just adore this color. The website describes it as a cotton candy pink, but I have to say it's more of a milky pink. Much lighter than what I consider to be cotton candy pink. This color is light, but packs a punch. It's not at all sheer (I hate how many light colors are semi-sheer) and if you don't have it yet, you neeeeeed to get it while you can!

So, there are my current beauty favorites. Have you tried any of them, and if so what did you think? What are YOUR current favorites??
