February Beauty Finds

Hello all and Happy Monday! Today I wanted to share with you some of my recents beauty product finds.  I am nowhere even in the realm of a beauty blogger so bear with me, but I just liked these products so I wanted to share them with you!

Lush Oatifix Mask - I'm already in love with Lush but I had never tried one of their masks.  After taking forever to decide I picked this one.  It's made for sensitive, dry or irritated skin so I thought it would be perfect for mine. Oh. My. Gosh. I love it.  First of all, it smells like Banana Bread and I just want to eat it.  But once I took it off, my skin felt so smooth. I will definitely repurchase this.

Clairol Professional Shimmer Lights Shampoo - My hair stylist back home recommended this after I asked her about purple shampoos because my hair has a naturally reddish tint that I don't love.  I've never tried any other purple shampoos but I love this one! I could see the difference after one wash and even more after two.  It works really well and it totally took that tint I didn't like away.  The one thing I don't love is all the chemicals (I try to use more natural stuff), but you can't always have that.

Essie Mini  Neons Set - This is the 2015 neons set.  It's sold out in stores but I got it on Ebay brand new.  The colors are: Make Some Noise (electric blue), Coacha'bella (magenta), Vibrant Vibes (bright yellowish/greenish lime), and All Access Pass (Purple).  I have to start out by saving that these really shouldn't be considered neon.  The lime color is but the others are not.  That being said, I like the other three colors the best.  The blue is absolutely beautiful and the pink is a really pretty bright pink.  I didn't think I'd like the purple but I actually love it on.  This post shows what they look like on.  I was a little disappointed, not because they're not pretty colors (they are!) but because I was looking for neon colors and these were not.

Orly Nail Bonder Nail Treatment and Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Nail Coat - I mentioned these in my At Home Manicure Post last week so I won't go into all the details but they're definite game changers.

Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Hypoallergenic Facial Towelettes - When we took our roadtrip across the country, these were a lifesaver! I carried them in my bag so that when we were in the car for hours at a time, I'd at least be able to wipe my face off and feel a little refreshed.  I recently rediscovered them and they've been such a lifesaver for those nights I'm too lazy to actually wash my face.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge - This is a dupe for the Beauty Blender.  I've never actually tried a Beauty Blender (I can't bring myself to drop that much on a sponge!) so I don't know how they compare, I have been loving this one.  I love how my makeup looks when I use it.  It gives a natural look and I can definitely tell the difference between when I use this or a brush.

NYX Liquid Suede in Pink Lust - I'm totally new to Lipstick but I was really drawn to this color.  It's a bright hot pink and I love how it looks on.  It doesn't last all day and it's not waterproof like it claims to be but it's a beautiful color and it wears nicely.
Rating: 4/5

ChapStick Lip Moisturizer - I get the worst chapped lips, so I've tried a million different chapsticks.  I had never tried just the basic chapstick until I was in a pinch and my mom had an extra pack laying around.  I tried it and I really like it.  You still have to reapply, but really, what chapstick don't you have to reapply?

So if you all try any of these, I hope you love them! And if you don't, well don't hate me ;)
