My March Favorites
I cannot believe we are already in April!! Did we not just celebrate Christmas like two weeks ago?? Some days I wish time would just stand still or just slow down a bit…let me catch up!! As the month came to an end I realized that I had been reaching for the same products over and over again. So…since I think they are so great, I thought I’d share them with you. 🙂
Kat Von D – Shadow & Lights Contour Palette – This palette is perfection! I seriously don’t know what I did before contouring. The colors are great and don’t come off looking muddy on the face. The highlighting colors are great for setting your under eye concealer or defining your contour.
BH Cosmetics Professional Blush Palette – I have still been loving this blush palette since I purchased it. They have such great pigmentation and a great variety of colors. (See my BH Cosmetics Review for more info)
BH Cosmetics Duo Fiber Stippling Brush – I received this in the Studio Pro Brush Kit and have been using this to blend out my contour, blush, and highlight so I don’t have any harsh lines and to make sure everything blends together seamlessly.
Studio Basic Double Ended Eye Shadow Brush – Sorry but I don’t have the link to this product but I did purchase it at Ulta. The double end allows me to really blend out my eyeshadows with one end and put a crease or brow bone color on with the other. I keep this in my makeup bag at all times.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (Opal) – We’ve all heard the hype about this highlighter and I have to admit it is all true. This gives you the perfect highlight without being overly glittery.
Michael Kors Glam Jasmine – This smells similar to the original Michael Kors but with more of a floral scent to it. I cannot get enough of this perfume! I literally douse myself in this every day.
Milani Lipstick in Dulce Caramelo (27) – Milani lipsticks have been my favorites since I stumbled upon them a couple years ago. They are really affordable and you can find them at CVS or Walgreens. This color is the perfect pinky nude; it’s creamy, and long wearing.
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream (Stockholm) – Matte lips are all the rave right now. Although there are a lot of expensive matte lipsticks out there, Nyx matte lipsticks are affordable and in my opinion do exactly as the others do for a fourth of the price.
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil (Dark Brown) – I typically wear this on my lid as a base for eyeshadow but I started wearing it on my water line and upper lash line. I was pleasantly surprised that it did not smudge on my contacts or underneath my eyes. I like it because its not as harsh as wearing black.
Tarte Smooth Operator Finishing Powder – This has been my favorite powder to set my under eye concealer with for the last couple months. It leaves it smooth and doesn’t grab on to the concealer like other powders do and make your under eyes look powdery and dry.
Laura Geller Spackle Tinted Make-up Primer (Champagne) – I feel like I have tried every foundation primer there out there. I tend to have combination/oily skin and need something that will hold my foundation all day. This has been working great for me this month; it does have a bit of shimmer but does not make you look like a disco ball.
L’Oréal Voluminous Curved Brush – This is my tried and true! I will always love this mascara and no matter what other mascaras I try, I continue to go back to this one. Call me crazy but the brush makes a huge difference for me and I must have the curved brush. This mascara gives me the perfect amount of volume and length without looking clumpy.
Mac Mineralize Skin Finish (Give Me Sun!) – Because we are coming out of winter months, I am definitely not as tan as I typically am. So I’ve been reaching for this bronzer because it gives me just the right amount of color without making me look orange or like I stepped out of bad spray tan.
Revlon Color Stay Whipped Crème Makeup – OMG I forgot how much I loved this foundation!! It’s been in my drawer for a hot minute and pulled it out last month to switch things up. Well, little did I know it would make me fall in love with it all-over again. It gives me great coverage with a matte finish and not only does it stay on all day but it look better as the days goes on. I have been so obsessed and it will probably be my go-to foundation for the spring and summer.
Share your monthly favorites…maybe they’ll soon be one of my favorites too! 🙂
