Let’s start with the base. After my week skiing in the Alps wearing no makeup, I liked the feeling of my skin being naked and decided to go with it so the only thing I did all month was wearing my beloved Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and the Neve Cosmetics High Coverage Mineral Foundation in Medium Warm. Despite the name, I don’t think this powder is high coverage at all but it does a good job at uniforming and mattifying my skin. The lasting power is just enough to get me through a day of work. I bought the sample size pot and after three weeks of use I’m far away from finishing it, but I think I will repurchase full size when the time comes.
Now to the unpleasant bits. I mentioned above how I religiously use the Maybeline Fit Me Concealer, so when that ran out I thought I would branch out and try another concealer from the brand, the Maybelline SuperStay 24h Concealer in 2-Light Beige. I though this shade would fit me, and the shade looks just right, but has a horrible grey undertone that makes me look as if I just came out of and episode o the Walking Dead. Not pretty, I tell you! Too bad because the formula is really nice. Other fail product is the Maybelline The Colossal Go Extreme! mascara, and the reason is simply because it is all that the Lancome Hypnose is not. It has a huge brush that is difficult to use without smearing mascara everywhere, it takes 5-6 coats for me to get the look I’m going for and finally the moment a tear or a drop of water comes near it, it runs all over the place. No, just no.
So here we go, these were all my favorites and unfavorites of the month of February! Have you tried any of these before? What were your favorites this month?
