February 2018 Favorites

I am not usually a creature of habit. More or less, I'm stuck on my latest newest products, but this month I've come back to some of my oldies. I am mostly featuring products I have already reviewed and that are very much loved through the whole year. I'm also concentrating more on skin care bits, since the cold weather is not doing my skin any good these days.

Papa Recipe Bombee Whitening Honey Mask Pack

I loved this mask and especially love the fact that it had so much essence in the pack. I am still using essence for about 5 days now. The sheet is one of the thinnest I have tried so far and it fits well on my face. It's a very nourishing and makes my skin look much plumper. It also visibly brightens skin tone. I love the scent that it has, it reminds me of honey and oranges. In general it's just one of the best sheet masks I have tried so far and I love that there is so much leftover essence in it that you can use for the next week.

I go back to this BB cream whenever I am the palest and the weather is the coldest. It's one of those grey colored Asian BB creams, but it feels and looks so good on the skin. Coverage is amazing for a BB cream and it also looks very natural. I love that it feels hydrating on the skin and never looks cakey, but it gives you good coverage. It's the perfect BB cream for those cold days and the grey shade actually blends into my skin well. I also love the fact that it's actually very light and I don't need to mix it with anything else. It's the best of skin care and foundation in one.

This is just so lovely. I adore its citrusy scent, velvet finish on the skin and the fact that it feels so lightweight. Sun screens are usually not the best for applying under the makeup, but this one works great. It's one of my favorite sun screens that I use on daily basis, especially in the colder months, when I'm using more acid based products. This is my second tube and I am already planning on ordering another one, because I use it up so quickly.

Pinch Me is one of those older products in my collection that I just love to pair with looks that I don't want to be too pink nor too peach. It's that perfect mix of red, peach and brown and it just looks so good with different makeup looks. It's not too pigmented and stil looks a bit sheer on the skin which I love, because I'm not big on pigmented blushes. It also lasts really well on the skin.

Another oldie that I adore. This is one of my favorite highlighters and it's perfect for winter, because it's pale enough, but has that light golden sheen to it. It's essentially light champagne shade with pale gold. It has fine shimmer that makes it look natural, but it still packs a glow. I've already made a dent in it, so you know I love it.

NYX Eye And Eyebrow Pencil in White Blanc and NYX Faux Whites Inner Eye Brightener in Vanilla

So I don't usually use eye pencil on my tight line, but I've started using them again on my lower tight line. I use both of these pencils to add brightness and make my eyes look bigger. Just on those days that I feel my eyes aren't too dry, because I have problems with that. White Blanc is a bit stiffer pencil in that proper very white shade. Vanilla is a lot more creamy pencil with a white base and light yellow tint to it. They both last well on my tight line and make me look just a bit brighter and fresher. 

Somehow I always get bold spots in my brows in the winter. I have a few patches that are more sparse with the brows anyway, but those bold spots drive me crazy. This is the only pencil I can find at an affordable price that actually sticks to the skin where there isn't any brow hair. It has that grey toned medium brown shade and I love how precise it is. You can just draw it on where you need it without it looking too bold. It's my must have for the brows.

Catrice Prisma Lip Glaze - 010 Enchanted Gold

I haven't been that excited about a lip gloss in a while. In the packaging it looks like a very pale yellow gold, but it also contains small pink shimmers that give it that gold pink sheen. Shimmer is just big enough that it pops and sparkles under light, but it doesn't look glittery or too much. I love applying it on top of lipsticks on the center of the lip, but it also looks amazing on its own. Formula is not too sticky and wears very comfortably.

Bioderma Atoderm SOS Spray

I'll have a separate review on my blog in a few days, so I won't go into details now. But it's basically quick relief spray for those that have problems with itchy dry skin. I have eczema on my hands and this really helps me when I have that attack of itchiness that I can't hold myself back. It's basically a milky white liquid that coats your skin and reliefs itchiness as well as protects the skin from further irritation. Must have for irritated and itchy skin.

I have quite a perfume collection and it's rare that I use up half of one bottle, let alone a whole bottle. But this is one of those rare perfumes that I already used up more than half of it. It's the most sophisticated oriental sweet fragrance that isn't too sweet, but has that basic oriental notes of sandalwood and amber. It's just sweet enough and feels way more sophisticated than most of my other sweet scents. I can't get enough of it.

The Bold Type

As for my non-beauty favorites, I've been loving watching The Bold Type. It's a TV show inspired by the life of Cosmopolitan editor in chief, Joanna Coles. I've always loved movies about that high paced New York lifestyle of beauty editors for magazines. It sort of reminds me of Sex And The City and movies like How to Loose a Guy In 10 Days. Something about this format just feels so light and fun. This show is all about the lives of three young women who work at a Scarlet magazine. One works on their social media, one is a journalist and one works in a fashion department. I'm on my first season now, so don't spoil it for me. But it's just a fun show to relax with at the evening.


  1. The Bold Type sounds amazing! It's a shame we can't seem to get it in the UK... will (not so patiently) wait for Netflix/Amazon to pick it up! Haha!

    1. Oh that's a shame. I'm sure you'll get it soon. Or on Netflix ;).

  2. Me res veseli, da ti je maska tako všeč :) Jaz tudi potem še nekaj dni uporabljam preostalo esenco, čeprav na Redditu pravijo, da menda tega ne smeš, but I don't care :D

    1. Zakaj ne? Ker je prišla v stik z zrakom? Meni je to smešno, jaz vse porabim. Ta maska je dejansko imela toliko esence, da sem jo skoraj en teden uporabljala. Res je super :). Moram še original verzijo preizkusiti. Hvala, da si mi jo poslala :) <3

    2. Ah, vedno nekaj govorijo o higienskih razlogih. Tipično pretiravanje, kot da ti bo faca stran padla, če uporabiš nekaj kar je bilo odprto včeraj *rolls eyes* Jaz isto od Papa Recipe uporabljam še kar nekaj dni po odprtju. Ni za kaj :)

    3. Meni je to tudi hecno, kot da potuje do nas že v sterilne okolju z res popolno temperaturo. Saj to nikoli niti optimalno ne pride do nas. Pa še bolj bedasto, če itak vse na sebi uporabiš. Razumem, ko nekaj rabiš na več ljudeh, ampak zase?!
      Me je prav presenetilo koliko je bilo v tej eni mali vrečki :).
