Humble Beauty #14 {oldies & Valentines faves!}

I've been loving the Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in "Copper Chic" which is a shimmy quad, 
that I talked about in my last humble beauty opinion post
Then I saw this quad from lolalynnmitchell on instagram and the matte colors, 
I knew I needed to find it! 
Loving the highlight, still playing around with this quad

Speaking of mattes, I am LOVING this Sonia Kashuk "Eye On Neutral" palette from Target, 
it is AMAZING! I've been using it almost everyday! 

All my current eye make up routine is a mix of these guys: 

I LOVE the eye make up and brush that came in this month's ipsy bag!
I've been wearing them together and loving them 
{as seen this week in my black, blue, and fancy post}

I also got back on the PinchMe bandwagon, 
have not received my little box yet, but excited to try the body wash!

Something that I am In Search Of "ISO" is this Loreal polish in "Masked Affair"
as recommended by the YouTuber KathleenLights on instagram! SO PRETTY!
maybe I will purchase after my shopping ban 
{along with hair dye... getting some roots gurlll}
This month's empties & reviews:
Bath: "Cozy Nights" Target candle {MY FAVORITE} / Yankee Candle tea light candles- "Witches Brew" & "Christmas Cookie" / Glade "Cashmere Woods" candle- not a fave, will not repurchase / Be fine lip exfoliator- I enjoyed this but the packaging is TERRIBLE, no product comes out / Origins "High-Potency Night-A-Mins" cream- I enjoyed this, very rich / L'Occitane "Immortelle Precious Cream" nice moisturizer not nice enough for the $$ / St. Ive's Apricot Scrub- ABSOLUTLY HOLY GRAIL / fresh rose hydrating eye gel cream- smelled nice and I enjoyed the gel texture 

Beauty: Matrix Biolage- nice cream enjoyed it / fresh umbrain clay mattifying serum- was never sure how to use this but enjoyed it as a moisturizer type product / Clinique "Stay Matte Oil-free Makeup" I enjoyed this product would consider using it in the future but I have tons of foundations to get through / Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner- I traded this over email from ipsy, it was nice for a few times but it leaked and dried up pretty quickly but I would probably try it again / Nivea Cocoa Butter- loved this will probably purchase it, I've been so ASHY lately / L'Oreal Pore Vanisher- nice but not my favorite / Dr.Jart+ BB Beauty Balm- I am enjoying this as like a light foundation
In anticipation for February & a month full of love, 
I wanted to share some of my favorite pink & red products!

{BTW: 14 days of pink/red/love themed outfits coming your way too, starting tomorrow!}
One of my favorite times of the year to get dressed! 
After all pink is my favorite color!
Also- I have made it a WHOLE MONTH without purchasing A THING! 
No new makeup, no clothes, NOTHING! 
With February starting tomorrow, I am taking things very slow...
I have come to terms with the fact that I am a shopping addict 
{mainly due to the fact I've been binge watching Nurse Jackie lately...}
I am considering a $100 monthly budget for spending,
 I am still playing with continuing the No Shop New Year all together,
 but I do need hair dye & want the Jaclyn Hill Favorites Palette by Morphe Brushes
So lets play it by ear... but so far so good!
