Beauty Trove's Top 5 for February

Hi Everyone!  Sorry I have been gone for a hot minute.  Things have been somewhat hectic at work and I have been playing catch up for the last couple of weeks.  I will be updating Beauty Trove with new sales, hauls, and favorites.  For now, I will start with letting you all know what my favorites have been for February.

1. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Matte and Poreless ($7.29)For the past few months, I have been trying on drug store foundations.  And I have to say that the drug store lines are stepping up their game.  During February I wore Maybelline's Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation nonstop.  I
just love this foundation for a demi-matte and flawless finish.  I find that I can wear this foundation for up to 8 hours with minimal breakup.  The Fit Me line can be built up for medium coverage.  I also like that the foundation is not too heavy.  If you have not tried the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless foundation, you should definitely stop by your drug store or Ulta and check it out.

2.  Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder ($5.89)I have paired the Fit Me Foundation with the Fit Me Loose Powder during Feburary.  The hype over this powder is real.  The powder is finely milled and applies beautifully over skin.  The powder creates an airbrush appearance and sets makeup nicely.  I think this may be my favorite drug store setting powder.  And at 5.89, it is worth every penny. 
3.  Coloured Raine Cheers to the Beauty (orig. $50, sale $40)I bought this palette at the original price during the winter holidays.  I came across this on the colored raine site and thought it looked absolutely gorgeous.  In person, it is just as beautiful and does not disappoint.  The eyeshadows are hyper pigmented, buttery, and apply smoothly.  It is almost effortless to blend the colors out on the eyelid.  I especially love using this palette for evening parties.  I would highly suggest picking this eyeshadow palette up even if it was not on sale.

4.  MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double Gleam ($34)MAC highlighters especially the one in double gleam is a classic for a reason.  Double gleam is a smooth, light gold-silver highlighter that melts flawlessly into the cheekbones and other high points on the face.  This highlighter is not for the faint of heart.  It truly is for those who want a highlight that will outshine Apollo himself.  I am so
glad I have finally picked up this MAC highlighter. 

5.  ColourPop NKLA x Laura Lee Super Shock Eyeshadow Quad ($18).  Colourpop has paired with cosmetics influencer/youtuber, Laura Lee and No Kill LA for this lovely super shock eyeshadow quad.  The quad features 2 metallic/glitter and 2 matte super shock shadows in the warm tone shade family.  I could not be happier with this purchase.  The glitter shades are to die for.  I love wearing them alone and on top of a regular eyeshadow for an extra pop of shimmer.  The matte shades are super creamy and blend out nicely.  I am planning on picking up another quad as a backup.  Most importantly, the proceeds from the eyeshadow quad go directly to No Kill LA, a no kill shelter group for stray pets.  Help support NKLA while looking bomb by picking up the Laura Lee x NKLA eyeshadow quad.

Beauty Trove's Top 5 for January 2018!

We are officially done with the first month of 2018!  I don't know about you but the start of 2018 feels a lot like 2017 did.  I seriously think I need to stop watching the news during the weekend and just catch up on Saturday.  Luckily, the makeup I have been trying out and loving this month has giving me a bright spot during the month.  If you want to know what I have been loving in cosmetics and beauty this January, keep reading.

1.  The Lorac Mega Pro 4 Palette ($59.00).  I picked this one up from Ulta on sale based off of a review by EmilyNoel83.  I am so happy with this purchase!  I love Lorac shadows and the Pro 4 did not disappoint.  This is a really fun palette with some truly unique shades.  I really love the FairyTale, Lotus, Unicorn and Steel Wool shades, they are simply some of the best metallics on the market.  All the shadows blend out like a dream.  I will be using this palette again in April.  It has a spring vibe about it. 

2.  Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection in Comfort Zone ($2.49).  This palette is simply icon.  The formula is extremely buttery and I wasn't expecting such a high quality given the price tag.  I love the greens and the dark neutrals.  The palette is currently on sale on the Wet n Wild website since its new formulation.  I would pick this one up while you still can.
3.  Elf Cosmetics Flawless Finishing Foundation ($6.00).  Elf has stepped up its game with this foundation!  I use a beauty blender with this foundation and it gives me the perfect look.  I look airbrushed and flawless.  This is also a great foundation for the winter since it is hydrating.  I think this would also work for those with combination skin but may not be appropriate if you are more oily.  This is definitely worth checking out and you can't beat the price.  The packaging is really good as well.  I love the glass bottle with the pump dispenser, it feels very high end. 
4.  J. Cat Beauty You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in Bella Rosa ($8.99).  What a beautiful highlighter!  This highlighter blends easily on the highest points of your face and this shade in particular gives you the most beautiful pink glow.  I really love this highlighter and will be picking up more.  J. Cat Beauty has three new shades in and I can't wait to own them all.  This will be a great highlighter for February and in the spring.
5.  Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Elusive ($5.99).  I hate having dry lips during the winter and have been using hydrating lip products throughout January.  One of my favorites is the Revlon ColourBurst Matt Balm in Elusive.  This formula is extremely hydrating, plumping, and cooling.  There is quite the shade range and I hope that Revlon will start creating some new colors.  Elusive is a pretty true pink.  This shade is a nice complement with the J. Cat highlighter and Lorac Pro 4 palette.
