February Loves and Blehs

This month, there were some things I fell in love with. There were also some that I grew to hate. In terms of beauty discoveries, February was a month where I bought quite a lot of makeup, since I had a Macy's giftcard left over from Christmas. I hit up Inglot and walked away with a pretty decent haul. I don't feel the need to review every Inglot eyeshadow individually, because basically all you need to know is they're amazing, and consistently so.

I'm currently planning on purchasing the new YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain (wow, mouthful of a name) in the color #15, so that will be my big purchase for March, and probably my only one. Anyway, here's what I loved this month:

Rain Cosmetics Undercover Concealer in Master of Disguise - new favorite concealer, has the best coverage out of any concealer I've ever tried. Matches my skintone very well, since it has yellow undertones (yay)!
theBalm Hot Mama Blush - I did a review on this here. Basically, a fabulous every day blush!
Inglot Pearl Eyeshadow in #434 - a complex grey-purple shade. Perfect to smoke out a look, to place in the crease, or in the outer corner.
L'oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Perpetual Purple - the texture and pigmentation of this is lovely, and I love the color! A full review of this is coming.
Deborah Lippman Nail Polish in Glamorous Life - this was limited edition, I'm not sure if it's still out. It's a ridiculously beautiful rose gold color.

And then, there were things that I just didn't really like. You can't have good things all the time, every time. There's bound to be some duds. I mean, I wish that I could love every single makeup purchase I made. Unfortunately, I can't. This month, there haven't been many products I disliked, but there were definitely a couple.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lip Gloss in Cherry Boost - the applicator doesn't apply color well, and the smell is unbearable for me. It's honestly not worth returning (I got it on clearance for 75% off). I did a review on this here.
Lorac Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in 4D - I bought this months ago and lost it. I found it recently, and tried it. The first time I tried to apply it, the applicator was as hard as a rock. I had to sort of splay the bristles of the brush out until it softened. The color was also absolutely not for me, it was too much of a whiteish pink. It looked dreadful on my skintone. The formula was sticky and applied gloppy. I really dislike this lipgloss.

Overall, it was a pretty decent month for me. My major new loves were the L'oreal eyeshadow and the Rain Cosmetics Concealer. Happy beginning of March & start of the weekend!
