February Favorites!

For some reason I feel like this month was just not very exciting in terms of beauty products for me. I've spent most of this month just kind of lounging around, so this month I have a few beauty favorites as well as a couple of random favorites!

Let's start with the beauty favorites.

Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color -- Punch Drunk. For most of January, I was trying to hunt down the perfect orange lip color. I didn't want it to be too neon or blue-toned, but I didn't want it to be too warm-toned either. I just wanted a very true, vivid orange. This lip pencil was the perfect color for me! I adore this lip pencil, and it's so hydrating and vibrant, while still have some good staying power. This month I've consistently been looking for excuses to wear this color, and orange lips is a huge trend for this spring!

Essie Nail Lacquer -- Bikini So Teeny. "Bikini So Teeny" came out with the Summer 2012 nail collection, and ever since I first saw it, I fell in love. It's a color that I always told myself I would buy, but never did, and after my first bad experience with Essie polishes (with a light green color that I can't remember the name of), I told myself I'd never buy Essie Polishes again. Of course, I did again, with "Butler Please," which I wasn't a fan of, and then again, with "Vested Interest," which I fell in love with. And yet again, I have found an Essie polish that I love! "Bikini So Teeny" is the perfect periwinkle color. It is a bit sheer, so be patient when applying it, but when it's on, it's absolutely gorgeous.

Physicians Formula Glow & Mood Boosting Powder -- Translucent. This product was a happy accident. I'm not exactly sure what I was thinking when I bought it, I guess I expecting a very, very pale blush, but it is actually a setting powder! It's got the slightest iridescence to it, which helps to blur any imperfections and add a glow to the high points of your face, without making you look oily. Plus it smells good! It works really well for me, especially in the areas where I tend to get dull and dry.

Aeropostale "Can U Not" Graphic Tee. If you follow me on Instagram, you'll probably be familiar with this shirt already. This graphic tee is from the Bethany Mota collection by Aeropostale. Like I said in my Teens For Jeans post, I worked for Aeropostale for two and a half years, and I think it's such a wonderful company! Plus, they have some great, affordable jeans that are almost always on sale. But this is a crop top graphic tee and on the front it says "Can U Not." Anyone who knows me in real life knows that these words come out of my mouth multiple times on a daily basis. My best friend and I were being mall rats, and when we saw this shirt, I knew I had to have it! Like all of Aero's graphic tees, it's super soft and goes from sizes XS to XXL.

Cartwheel by Target App. I feel like I spend a good portion of my life in places like Target. A few months ago, Target came out with a coupon app available in both the App Store and on Google Play, and of course, as soon as I heard about it, I had to download it. It was super helpful during Christmas time, and I feel like, over the past month, I've been obsessively using this app for everything. It's basically couponing made easy -- you just sign in via Facebook or email and select your coupons. Once you get to the register, just scan the app barcode! If you have a Facebook, you don't have to sign up or give them any information, which makes it even easier.
