Phanie's Prized Products: February 2011 Edition

 I'm sorry I've been MIA lately and have been lacking in making posts here. So, I'm back with a February favorites post. 

I got the travel size to try out.
Left-Right: No flash, With flash

The first item that I have been using all month is the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original. You know, the one in the purple container. I have been using this to conceal the redness that's sometimes present on my eyelids. Also, it gives a sheen to my eyelids as if I'm wearing an eyeshadow. I love how this is so easy to put on, but might have to crack it open and depot it someday. 

My current fave concealer. I use it on my blemishes because lately I have been under attack by the ZIT monsters just because it's that time of month again --" The packaging has a twist bottom, so you have to twist it to dispense the product. 

Not quite a fan of the tip applicator, so I just spill the product  on the back of my hand and use my fingers to dab it on blemishes.

Etude House Tint Gloss. I like the feel of the product on my lips. It's lightweight, glossy, and after a while, the gloss fades, but my lips still manage to have the color.
I'm not usually a fan of mascaras. but this one is different. It lengthens my lashes, dries quick, can hold the curl of my left eyelashes. Why? It's because my right eye has a heavy eyelid that droops and covers most of my eyelashes. That's why it only works on my left eye, which has a normal eyelid and crease. It doesn't smudge throughout the day.
My favorite eyeliner this month. It gives a natural look, glides on easily, easy removal with an eye makeup remover, but it does smudge easily, so I usually set it with a brown eyeshadow powder.
A new discovery from KAO is a brand called Liese. This is their Iron Make Collection Rich Straight spray. This is a heat protecting spray from when you're using a blow dryer or a straightening iron. It doesn't stop there! It also helps gives a straight and sleek appearance to my hair. It has another version from the iron make collection called the Rich Curl, CMIIW.
This product helps in diminishing the appearance of acne scars on my cheeks after a good use of 2 weeks. I like the packaging since it's so hygienic.
The texture is creamy, not oily, and sinks into the skin quite fast. It doesn't break me out, despite the creamy texture. 
Current serum that I love. Since I've weaned off Retin-A for a while, I use this to replace it. I got a sample size to try . So far, I've seen my skin getting brighter. This packaging comes with a pump. Love it!
The texture is watery, sinks into the skin rapidly, and doesn't break me out.  
My favorite scent this month is from Etude House Espoir Violet. It has a floral scent that is crisp and fresh!
