February 2017 Beauty & Fashion Favorites


Beauty
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon (get it here!)
I'm a loyal Jo Malone wearer, but when I got a sample of this in my Sephora PLAY! Box, I immediately ran out to buy it. It's unlike anything I've ever worn, and it's definitely my favorite of the Nirvana line. MK&A are really killing the fragrance game here. The notes listed are vanilla bourbon, oakwood, and tuberose (which I looked up for you, its a Mexican flower).

Kiehl's 'Ultra Facial' Oil-Free Gel Cream (get it here!)
My new go-to moisturizer. I had been using LUSH 'Enzymion' for years, but my face needed a break. This is super-moisturizing, without making my face too oily, and also without being too matifying. It's the perfect moisturizer for oily-normal skin.

NARS Blush in 'Outlaw' (get it here!)
NARS always has the most incredible blushes, but this is not one I would have just grabbed. It's somewhat intimidating in the pan, but it's a beautiful, deep pink/red color with some gold shimmer. (Sephora describes it as a 'soft rose' color, which I am not entirely sure I agree with, so go swatch this one yourself). The girl at the Nordstrom NARS counter got me hooked after using it on me. It was my go-to holiday blush and I've found myself reaching for it as an every day blush now too.

Yuni SHOWER SHEETS (get them here!).
These are amazing. There are definitely people out there who are going to read this and think I'm disgusting, but I know the majority of my audience is with me on this. These obviously don't replace your regular shower schedule, but they're extremely helpful when you workout and aren't able to shower/go home right away (which is frequently the case with me). They smell great and are big enough where you only need one per use. Definitely recommend them, and have been loving learning more about this brand, which is new to Sephora.com! They're also probably going to make an appearance in my 'How Not to Wash Your Hair for a Week" blog post.

Lipstick Queen Cupid's Bow Pencils in Apollo and Ovid (get them here!)
I cannot believe it took me this long to discover Lipstick Queen! This product specifically has been one of my favorites from the line thus far and may be my favorite lip 'pencil' that I've ever tried (yes, even beating NARS). They're so smooth and creamy, and I never have any problems with feathering! Plus, they're $5 cheaper than NARS. Apollo is a wine color, and Ovid is a deep blue-red. Both are amazing, and there are six other shades to choose from!

Fashion
Beyond Yoga Inner Light-Weight Tank (get it here!)
Beyond Yoga has become my go-to athlesiure (and athletic) brand recently. It's not cheap, but the quality is incredible and 100% worth it. The leggings and tanks are so comfortable and soft, unlike any I've ever worn. If you can swing it, I highly recommend picking something up by them, specifically this tank!
