When YouTube was my main platform, one of my favorite videos to film was my monthly favorites. I always looked forward to the end of any month to collect all of my favorite products and review them for my viewers. If you want to catch a glimpse of a younger Liv in one of my Youtube videos, click here. It is always fun to take a trip back to the past. Anyway back to the present. It didn’t occur to me until one of my blogging brainstorm sessions that I should bring my monthly favorites posts to the LivForStyle blogging community, so that is exactly what I am doing in today’s post.

First, I want to talk about the makeup palette that has been front and center of my makeup collection. The Make Up Forever Artist Palette Volume 1 in the color Nudes You Need has been my go-to for all of my makeup looks. This palette features nine neutral toned colors, making it a staple to achieve neutral day-time looks or smokey, darker looks. Not only does this palette feature my favorite eye shadow colors, like gold, bronze, copper, and pewter, but the formula of each shade is super pigmented and blendable.

Next, to accent the beautiful bronze shades, I have been ditching my typical black liquid eyeliner and using my new Tarte Clay Pot Waterproof Liner. This gel liner applies like butter, as it smoothly glides on my upper lash line. If you’re a bronze makeup lover like me, you need this gel liner in your collection.


The cold, dry air has really wreaked havoc on my skin. I usually never noticed my dry, rough skin until all my makeup is wiped away and I am ready for bed. So, a night face cream has been an important part of my nightly routine. I apply my Lumixyl Trifecting Night Cream before bed so while I am sleeping this product can get hard at work moisturizing my skin, fighting blemishes, and reducing fine lines. Finding a good face cream is important, but even more important is finding a good face cream that is made with only the best ingredients. This winter, I have vowed to treat my skin with only the best products, because after all our skin is the biggest organ of our body (decided to throw in something I learned in my biology class today, my professor would be so proud). If you are interested in purchasing one of Lumixyl’s wonderful products, click the link here to receive 25% off your purchase of TNC, using the code TNCxSW on This offer expires 2/18. A deal you won’t want to miss.


Keeping with the face theme, I have been using Maybelline Facestudio Master Contour Palette to contour, define, and highlight my cheeks. The bronzer, blush, highlight trio is perfect for busy people like me because it provides all the products you need to achieve a radiant glow in one palette. I have never been into blush, but for the winter time, I noticed a little color and sparkle is what I need to brighten up winters pale skin.

Lastly, to wash all my makeup off at night I’ve been using Garnier’s Micellar Water. I have to admit I was persuaded to buy this new face wash after I saw the catchy commercial on television. I am so glad I decided to swoop this up on a recent drugstore shopping trip because it is the best way to wash off makeup and cleanse your skin. Good-bye makeup, oil, and dirt. Hello clean, soft, hydrated skin.


And there you have it…a round up of my current favorite items. I’m like a kid in a candy shop whenever I am in the drugstore, Sephora, or whenever the UPS man drops off a package. I never know what to expect or what I am going to find. So you better believe that there will be more of my current obsessions posts very soon. Let me know in the comments below what has been your go-to makeup product or clothing item for this month.

    I love micellar water! My skin feels so cool and clean after I use it, and it doesn’t dry out my already dry skin, which is quite an accomplishment. I actually use the Simple brand product, but would be interested to see how Garnier compares!

    Great round-up of products! I’ve heard so much about this micellar water. Great to know you’ve had a great experience — I will definitely have to check it out!

    I am so happy that Garnier released a version of the micellar water! I’ve been using Bioderma for the longest time and I’m so glad there’s a more wallet-friendly version!

    I’ve seen a few people use this cleansing water, I need to try it! I always work so late I can never be bothered to hot cloth cleanse my face at night so this might be the ticket <3
