March 2015 Favorites

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Okay! Even though I'd literally add everything mentioned in my Spring Beauty post to this list, these are things I've been using consistently this past month, and been madly in love with. I'm a serious product polygamist, don't tell me how to love!

Too Faced Natural Matte palette - If you've seen my review, I mean, duh! I'm pretty sure I can even add it to my "favorite palettes of all time" category. Along with the Chocolate Bar. I mean seriously, Too Faced has got it down with their eyeshadows! Real winners.

Milani Rose Powder Blush in Tea Rose - Let's start by admitting we're all a little in awe with this powder, I mean it's so pretty right? I love the rose design! Beyond that, the color is gorgeous and this blush is SUPER pigmented (go easy when dipping your brush and make sure to really tap off any excess) and lasts all freakin' day. Bonus: it's drugstore. Sold. (For my Montreal homies ; you can find Milani in some Walmarts and Maxi grocery stores...If not you can buy it online!)

Nyx Butter Lipstick in Pops - This gets an honorable mention! I've mainly been reaching for my Maybelline Creamy Mattes this month (shocker) but I received this guy in my Ipsy bag, and I quite like it! It's surprisingly hydrating and this shade is a good nude for me. It's more subtle than Maybelline's Touch of Spice, so when I want to go more "discrete" with the lips, I've been reaching for this.

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown / Brush #12 - Talk about a match made in heaven! I love this brush and how it applies evenly and precisely and that spooley just smooths out everything so nicely. The pomade is such a great product to fill, define a give a bit of hold your brows. When I use this and top it off with my much loved L'Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper, it's like #eyebrowsonfleek (am I using it right? Getting older is no joke. DAMN YOU YOUTHS!)

L'Oreal RevitaLift Moisture Blur - Now this, this is something special! I pretty much use it as a primer for my T-Zone, because my skin can be dry there sometimes but my pores are still HUGE. Problem solved. The cool thing about this product is you can also use it on it's own, or I found it effective to use it on top of makeup to refresh your skin (if ever your foundation starts breaking down or you're looking a little cakey). Quite surprisingly pleased with this product! Though I guess I shouldn't be too shocked, I bought it because I read JLo used this at the Oscars... #sucker.

L'Oreal BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray - Another lovely surprise! I picked this up sort of on a whim as it was on sale (did I mention I'm a sucker?) and it looked interesting. I cannot explain it, but this really does help cut the drying time of your hair. I'd go as far as saying it takes half the time or less. Complete insanity. Bonus: Makes your hair shiny and it smells like sweet berries (if you're not into that, it doesn't linger, so worry not friend).

And that's pretty much it! What products have you guys been loving this past month?

Talk to you soon!
