Products on a Pedestal, February 2012

Products on a Pedestal is our version of a monthly favorites recap. The products that especially rocked the makeup bag and caught our attention. Last month, Kayla shared her favs. This month, I’ll share mine.

Every brand that is not YSL wants to have a Touch Eclat. Some come close, others not so much. For the price, Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer is perhaps the best budget option I’ve encountered yet. The color ‘Radiant’ has just enough pink in it and does a good job concealing and diffusing.  

What a nice surprise! Versace Yellow Diamond is so fresh and floral. I definitely enjoyed wearing this all month, and it is getting me in a spring state of mind. The base is amber and musk but it’s a very sheer scent with tons of floral and a touch of fruit (lemon and pear). Also, I LOVE the big yellow diamond cap.

A bright pink cheek feels so appropriate in the winter. And NARS Gaiety Blush is the perfect pink. The bright hue totally awakens the face. I love that it is matte, so I can wear it that way or layer with a highlighter for more glow.

My wear with everything gloss this month was Tarte’s Maracuja Divine Shine Lip Gloss in Glisten. It’s a peachy nude, so it goes with everything and I remain enchanted by the floral tube. Can you tell I’m excited for spring?!

Benefit Instant Brow Pencil in shade medium helps bring natural fullness to my brows. I love how I barely have to press the pencil to my brows to get the effect I’m after. The spoolie on the other end is so convenient, too, and helps pull my entire look together in 3 seconds.
