Hey! So today I have the beauty products I used the most during February to share with you. A few of these things I just recently purchased and LOVED throughout the month, and a few were old favorites.
My first favorite was the Clean & Clear Persa-gel 10. Since I had my son in August, my skin has been TERRIBLE. I thought it was just stress at first, but now I'm sure it's hormonal. Either way I have never had so much acne before. I usually use Clean & Clear Advantage spot treatment which the main ingredient is salicylic acid. That has always worked well for clearing up existing acne, but it was no longer helping as much. So I decided to try something new. Sticking with the brand I love, I bought the Clean & Clear Persa-gel 10. The main ingredient in the persa-gel 10 is benzoyl peroxide which Clean & Clear claim it's the same prescription formula recommended by doctors. This acne medication has helped so soo much with clearing up and preventing acne. My skin is almost back to normal, and I seriously would recommend this product. You can get this at Walmart for about $6.

Hiii! Today I am reviewing NYX's Highlight and Contour Pro palette. As soon as I saw this palette on Instagram, I HAD to have it asap! I was about to finally give in and buy the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit which is $40, but then I saw this NYX palette for $25 and decided to try it first . This palette had 8 shades which made it an even better deal than the Anastasia one. I have never used a NYX bronzer/contour shade, but I have used their illuminators which I LOVE. My favorite one is Ritualistic, it is a gorgeous light golden highlight. So I had really high hopes for this highlight and contour palette, but unfortunately I was disappointed. These were really powdery and made a mess every time I put my brush in them. That I could live with, but they also do not blend well. I used multiple different brushes to see if maybe my brush was the problem, but I was still left with darker, muddy looking patches on my face. It seriously sucks because there are some great colors in this palette. I do however, like the highlight powders. Even though they are a bit powdery, I will keep using them. I especially like the banana powder to set my under eye concealer. Overall, I sadly would not recommend the NYX highlight and contour pro palette. Even though $25 is much better than $40, $25 is still quite a bit and I would expect better quality. I definitely think in this case, it is worth spending the extra money to get the Anastasia contour kit.

Hi everyone! Today I decided to to review Tartes new Tartelette Amazonian clay matte eye shadow palette. I bought this a couple weeks ago and I love it so much, I've used it everyday since. This is the first Tarte eyeshadow palette I've purchased, and I seriously have been missing out. The quality of the eyeshadows is just unreal. They are super smooth and every single one is crazy pigmented. I also noticed these eyeshadows last a long time, with or without primer. Normally my eye shadow starts to look worn after 6+ hours, with these I've notice even 10-12 hours later my eye shadow still looked perfect. This palette is great for an everyday neutral look, or even a super dark sultry look. Ive been able to do so much with this palette and I plan to share some looks soon. So I'm going to show you all the gorgeous colors and some swatches and if you like what you see, I seriously recommend going out and getting this palette asap!
