A BIG HELLO to everyone! Hiya’!!:lol:
Each month, I will let you in on my Holy Grails and favorite products for that month. Although I have many favorites, I will try to limit them to fewer than 10 each month. Many of these products I have had for several months and I am barely getting to use them. Yes, I am a makeup hoarder, don’t judge me. I have a habit of getting stuff and storing them away for later. Okay, let’s get down to business.
This month I had 5 favorites. Yes, only five for this month :(.
The Favorites for February:
OLE HENRIKSEN Truth To Go Vitamin C Wipes.
I love these wipes. Very light scent of orange (love the smell of oranges). Very gentle cleansing wipes that provide moisturizing and age defying properties. Vitamin C and micro algae to help firm, brighten and smooth the texture of your skin. Super yay! Not only do I use this to remove dirt or makeup from my face but also in the morning to clean my face with them and then follow up with the foam cleanser that I use from this line that I am obsessed with (product on my January favorites). I really love the Ole Henriksen line, pricey but worth the $$$$ spent on their products.

Too Faced Love Sweet Love palette
This palette was part of their 2012 Holiday line and was also given as a free gift with a $50 purchased on their website in February 2013. I really love this palette for a natural simple look. The palette looks like a cute little booklet with a mirror inside along with three different makeup looks guide. Palette contains 6 eyeshadows, two blushes and two lip pans. Colors I dislike from this palette are Strawberry Cream, Burnt Sugar & Licorice Glitz.
Vanilla Sugar- pale off-white with light sheen.
Mocha Ice - medium metallic warm brown.
Ganache - medium brown with a light sheen.
Strawberry Cream - shimmery pale pink. (seems chalky to me)
Burnt Sugar - medium taupe shimmer. (seems chalky to me)
Licorice Glitz - charcoal grey with silver micro-glitter. (seems chalky to me)
Pink Caramel - light brownish pinkish shade (love this blush)
Lollipop - bright candy pink. (a little chalky looking on me)
Raspberry Truffle - sheer medium rose pink.
Bubble Gum - a light sheer shimmering/icy pink.

NARS blush in Dolce Vita
How I love this color in all their products and how this is my #1 favorite blush color to use. A little of this goes a long way. Dolce Vita is a dusty rose color with a matte finish.
NOTE: NARS is cruelty free (their parent company is not)
Where: Sephora or NARS website
SOAP & GLORY: A Great Kisser Lip Moisture Balm in Juicy Peach
I love the smell and the feel to this balm!!! Love it, love it, love it! Very creamy and light. Goes on very sheer and I smell the peaches!!! Contains mango butter to moisturize, apricot berry protects your precious lips from those cold cold winter winds and lingonberry oil for hydration. Non-greasy feeling.

Milani ANTI-FEATHERING LIPLINER
I love this lipliner! If you’re looking for a cheaper version of UD Ozone ($20) and Make Up For Ever lip line perfector ($19) well look no further, Milani’s anti-feathering lipliner is at your service for just $4.49. This is a transparent lipliner that prevents lipstick & lip gloss from feathering. I also use this as a lip primer & liner filler to extend the wear of any lipstick or lip gloss.
