Dreamy Pick February 2013


Houglass Ambient Lighting Powder – I’ve recently reviewed this ‘hot item’ and have since been using it daily. This yellow-toned setting powder (not to be confused as a highlighter) leaves me with a naturally radiant finish while masking red-tones. (review)

Kahina Giving Beauty Antioxidant Mask – Another product from Kahina featuring their precious Argan Oil along with rhassoul clay and antioxidants in a potent mask form.  The mask deeply cleanses, conditions and exfoliates skin. I have a review coming soon!

Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil – This product has been nothing short of a miracle to my dry skin. I have been hesitant to refer to myself as someone with dry skin since incorporating this oil into my daily routine. The oil absorbs quickly leaving my skin radiant and not in the least bit oily. There are also a million other ways in which I use it. (review)

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #8 ‘Pink in Confidence’ – It’s no secret I have a thing for YSL lipsticks, the Rouge Volupte formulas being one of my favorite. I love this nude-pink shade from their new ‘Shine’ range for every day. (review)

RMS Beauty Un Cover Up – This product has superior concealing capabilities and is chock-full of natural and organic ingredients. So while I can sometimes get away with using this to conceal my under-eye circles I usually require something a bit more potent. Personally my favorite way to use this is as a foundation on my down days or when I want to give my skin some extra TLC. It melts perfectly into the skin providing light coverage with the most natural finish. (review)

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Shadow in Amethyst – These shadow sticks create an easy smokey-look in just a couple of swipes. The lasting ability is quite exceptional and I am simply smitten with the shade Amethyst. (review)

What are some of your favorites this month?

  1. That Kahina mask sounds fantastic! Can’t wait to read your full review! I tried a sample of their brightening serum and really loved it. It’s only a matter of time that I purchase something full-size!

  2. I really love your picks Taylor, so many gorgeous products! I’ve been eyeing the lipstick, everyone seems to love them! ^^ Can’t wait to hear about the mask!

  3. Love your favorites! Diffused Light and my YSL Rouge Volupte Shines are definitely a few of mine as well. And Amethyst may or may not be soon making its way into my collection 😉 ….I regret not getting it a few weeks ago and have been thinking about it ever since!

    1. Thank you Tiffany, I honestly need more LM Pencils in my collection they are just gorgeous! YSL Lippies are definitely my all-time favorites and go to’s for the best shades 🙂

  4. Kahina! I have never tried a better argan oil than this, you see and feel the high quality argan oil, my dry skin is loving this product so much. All the reviews on the Hourglass powder myke me want it … I am still not sure what it is used for, just highlighter or bronzer or should it add colour? So mayn different reviews, lol.

    1. Oh I’m so glad to hear! Kahina has been amazing for my skin which was so uncomfortably dry. The hourglass powder is marketed as an all-over setting powder. Some people are using it as a highlighter though. It’s a bit of a personally choice I think with the shades, they can add color so you should consider what shade would best suit your complexion. Pink, peach, yellow, white etc. this does add yellow and I would not recommend it to those with already yellow toned skin. The result is dewy and brilliant!

      1. oh my, it sounds wonderfull, I think I have to pick up the pink one, it looks beautiful 🙂 Thank you Taylor ❤

  5. Taylor, you always have such exquisit pick for fav products. 🙂 Always a great fun to find out what you have been using over the past month. Love your YSL lipsticks.
