A Very Pink February

Even though Valentine's Day was a week ago, can anyone really get enough of pink? Didn't think so. When I think of February, not only do I automatically associate it was love, but a bunch of pinks, reds, and any other hue from that side of the spectrum cloud my mind. Here's a round of great products packaged in (or is)  pretty pink that I've been using a ton lately:

Too Faced Hangover Primer / I always seem to pull this primer out when the colder months roll in. It's known to give you a surge of moisture while also priming your face, getting it ready for your makeup base. Since my skin gets dry when the temperature drops, this is pretty much the only primer I've been using - well, besides the Benefit Porefessional, but that one doesn't come in cute pink packaging

Benefit High Beam Liquid Highlighter / I tend to always neglect this thing, so this month I decided to give it a little spot on top of my muji drawer in hopes that I would use it more often. I often forget the beautiful glow it gives to my skin and how natural it looks compared to a powder highlight. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette / Pretty much my go-to pink-toned palette. This one definitely doesn't need an introduction over here as I've talked about it countless times. I bought this last year and still I can't get enough of it. It's just contains the most pigmented shadows I've ever tried, not to mention they blend like a damn dream. See some swatches over here

Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Kit in Gradient / This is fairly new to my collection, but I can't seem to put it down. I especially love using the top left shade. I've mentioned in a previous post that these blushes are super pigmented. The pan size is generous too - I don't know how I'll ever get through them all. 

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask / My holy f*ckin' grail. I have yet to see a bad review about this little thing. I don't know if you could tell from the photos, but I've literally been scraping the bottom of this tub trying to get every last bit of product left in there. There's no doubt that I'll be repurchasing this very soon (I'm talking this week) as this seems to be the only product that keeps my lips nice and supple. 

MAC Lip Pencil in Stripdown / Admittedly, mine is on the verge of being a little nub but that goes to show just how much I'm obsessed with this thing. It's more on the deeper side of the pink spectrum, but still I'd call it a kinda pink. This pretty much goes with any lipstick shade that I own - with the exception of reds. Whenever I don't want to through on lipstick, I'll quickly line my lips with this and it looks so natural but also gives that nice definition to the lips. 

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick in OG Lolita* / Whenever I get a new lipstick, I wear it everyday for like a month straight before it gets lost in the bottom of my purse or lipstick drawer until I rediscover it on my next clear out. February's lipstick of the month was this beauty. Such a pretty shade that goes on smoothly without drying out my lips. Definitely a winner for me!
