February 2016 Favorites

by How She Styles

February was a really great month for me! I started a new job and had a really great Valentine’s Day.  It’s really starting to feel like this year is going to be great! I just feel like I am moving closer to reaching my goals and I feel so excited about the future!


Throughout this month, I’ve tried a lot of new products and really found a lot of great things!  Here are favorites from fashion, beauty and everything in between.

Wet n Wild Brow Wow Tinted Eyebrow Gel in Nothing But Bru-Nette


Everyone loves the Maybelline Brow Stylist Plumper, but that brow gel just didn’t work for me.  When I saw that Wet n Wild came out with a tinted brow gel for less than three dollars, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on it!  I love the texture and the way it makes my brow hairs stay in place without making my brows feel like plastic.  The only thing I would change about it is the brush—it’s just slightly larger than I would like, so there is a bit too much product to distribute through the brows.  However, the formula completely makes up for it.

Lorac Pro 2 Palette





I got this palette for Christmas, and whenever I don’t know what look to wear, I always reach for this palette.  It has more cooler toned eyeshadows than the original Lorac Palette and I’ve found that it has more shades that fit my skintone.  The shades I am really drawn to are Rose, Jade, and Mocha.  The Lorac shadows are always so buttery soft and blendable, and I can’t get enough of them!


Girlactik Matte Lip Paint in Starlet

This was a new find.  Nicole from the youtube channel Young, Wild, and Polished has been mentioning these liquid lipsticks for a long time, but I didn’t want to buy them without trying them out first.  When I saw them displayed in Walgreens I was so excited!!  I grabbed the color Starlet, and it looks like I’ll need to get the color Posh next! These liquid lipsticks are amazingly good.  They wear for a long time and they are so comfortable on the lips.

Clinique Chubby Lash Mascara in Jumbo Jet



My mom actually gave this to me because it wasn’t working for her, but I love it!  This mascara has a huge wand which may not be for everyone, but it does an outstanding job of gripping every single one of my lashes.  This is quickly becoming one of my favorite mascaras.

Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream Moisturizer for Dry Skin



I ran out of my day cream and wanted to try something new.  Garnier is really killing it with their skincare and Micellar water so I decided to try this strange gel moisturizer.  It promises to smooth and hydrate, and I’ve found that it does a great job of that.  It sinks into the skin very quickly, and I can really feel the texture of my skin changing for the better as soon as I put it on.


Garnier Soothing Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes for Sensitive Skin


I’ve been looking for makeup removal wipes for my sensitive skin, and these wipes from Garnier are the best I’ve tried. Some makeup wipes seem to irritate the skin around my eyes, especially when I  try to rub off long-wearing makeup.  With these wipes, my skin only gets irritated if I rub my face too firmly, but even then, that rarely happens.

Belted Boots by Crown Vintage c/o DSW


I love these boots.  When I need to dress up for work and it’s cold outside, these are my go-to pair.  They go with every look and I can put these on with everything!


Calvin Klein Faux Leather Trim Jacket

I wore this jacket to an event last week and it really made my outfit feel much more chic.  Between the bouclé with faux leather accents and the fit, this is the perfect jacket for any event.  I just can’t get enough of this piece!
