Welcome to my favorite series: my monthly gems! I didn’t do a monthly gems post in December since I already had my winter skin survival guide, which features some of my favorite products. Now I’m excited to be back with a brand new post and share some more products with you!

I recently discovered this lash primer and I can’t live without it! I love pairing it with my favorite mascara. This lash primer adds an extra boost of volume and length while conditioning them- no falsies needed! As a matter of fact, it is a dupe of the LancΓ΄me version but is only a fraction of the price!

I really love ELF brushes and I can’t believe how affordable they are! Their contour brush is excellent for naturally sculpting your features and can be used with any bronzer. Although this is my favorite department store bronzer, Rimmel also has similar drugstore versions and all you need is a contour brush to create the perfect look!

While we’re on the subject of brushes, it’s so important to thoroughly clean them! I really like my brush cleaning mat set. This set has different textures and the smaller pieces are great for traveling. If you don’t need a whole set then you also have this option, but you are getting a much better deal with a brush cleaning set!

Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands and I absolutely love this shade! It is a pretty pale pink color. I like how it has a sheer finish and goes well with many different outfits. It is also the perfect color for Valentine’s Day! πŸ™‚

Speaking of Valentine’s Day, if you’re searching for a flirty floral scent then this is the perfect perfume for you! I like how the scent is light and not too overwhelming. I just love the great smell of jasmine, peonies, roses, and lilies. It is a great combination of lovely scents for a special night out.

I hope you enjoy these products! Let me know if you have tried any of these before or if you have any recommendations for me. I love discovering new products!
