March 2017 Favorites

Rimmel “Match Perfection” Concealer – This concealer is truly amazing. It does a great job of covering up redness and dark circles under my eyes, but still looks natural. It doesn’t crease anywhere and lasts all day long.

Makeup Revolution “Matte Blush” – I don’t know that I have ever tried a more pigmented matte blush! This has a smooth, creamy formula and the color payoff is incredible… so be sure to go in with a light hand. I have the shade Nude and love it!!!

Nine West “Dress Pump” – Now that it is (finally) warming up where I live, these babies have been on repeat. They are versatile and comfortable. What else does a girl really need?!

Sofia Vergara “Tempting” Body Spray – While I’m not much into fragrance, I bought this on a whim at Marshall’s and have been loving it. It has scents of vanilla, tropical fruit, and flowers. I can’t get enough of it lately!

Short and sweet this month. Have you tried any of these products?!

IPSY Review – March 2017

Have you heard of Ipsy?! It is a monthly beauty subscription service that allows you to try unique brands, use different products, and collect items items that you may not pick up on your own. For only $10 a month I’d say it’s quite the deal! You can join by clicking here if you’re interested.

Here is what I got in my most recent March bag…

Ofra Cosmetics – Peach Blush Talk about a dupe for Nars’ Orgasm!!! This blush has some serious gold reflection to it that is very flattering on the skin. On my skin tone specifcally I had some difficulty with the peach shade showing up, but I do think this will flatter lighter skin tones.

Air Repair Skincare – Complexion Boosting Moisturizer I am pretty picky with skincare and this passed the test. It is packed full of antioxidants and left my skin feeling perfectly moisturized. Can’t ask for much more than that!

Beau Gachis – Tapered Blending Brush This is my favorite item of the bag! Ipsy seriously reads my mind when it comes to brushes, because I’ve been on the lookout for a new blending brush. This baby is going to seriously come in handy. I love the curved tip and fluffy bristles… it makes blending a dream.

Tarte – Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint While I love this brand, I’m not a huge liquid lipstick lover. However I did try this out and it was less drying than others I have tried in the past, with more of a velvet matte finish. The applicator is very precise and I think it will be a good shade to save for autumn.

ModelCo – Eye Define Crayon Liner This liner claims to glide on without tugging or dragging, which is the exact opposite experience I had with it. The product is very stiff and difficult to blend. I do like trying new black liners because, let’s face it, they are a staple in any makeup collection but this one just did not do it for me.

March Favorites

Today I’m happy to bring to you my newest series, a monthly favorites! Toward the end of each month I will be sharing a favorite (or two, or three) from each of the following categories: beauty, fashion, and entertainment… as well as other randoms that don’t quite fit into those categories.

Here is everything that I have been loving in March!

 

Vanilla Caramel Chai – Tazo Tea

Chai is a tried a true for me. I usually love to drink it in fall because the spices and dark qualities match colder weather, but this month I fell in love with a chai that has an added twist… vanilla and caramel. It’s not too sweet (I was worried), just gives off softer flavor than it’s traditional form.

Cami Dress – Old Navy

These dresses are super comfortable and come in so many cute patterns! I purchased two recently in “Red & White Floral” (shown above) and “Multi Floral”. I’m saving them to wear for upcoming warmer weather vacations, as I think they will be perfect for traveling.

Mattifying Emulsion & Pore Refining Primer – Figs & Rouge

Ipsy sent this to me a few months back and it has been my reach-for primer of the month. It does a great job filling in pores and mattifying skin just the right amount. Dries tacky and makes your makeup last longer.

Inner Light Mineral Dual Foundation – Aveda

I discovered this baby in the back of my powder collection this month, hiding because it has been too dark for me… until now! This is my favorite pressed powder because it is smooth in texture, full coverage, and has a soft fresh scent.

Friends – Netflix

Let’s be real, this is my favorite every month! The past few weeks I have been especially reaching for Friends. It’s a comfort thing for me and I love having it on while I’m cleaning, doing bills, and getting ready.
