Is it just me or has March been a particularly long month this year? Regardless of how long it actually did feel, I’m here today with my first “monthly favorites” post. So without further ado, here are my 10 favorite items from March. Enjoy!
1. EOS Chapstick
I know these guys have been out for a while now, but until recently I just never jumped on that bandwagon. But I decided that it was finally time to give them a go, and boy am I stuck on that wagon. They all smell great, they’re easy to use and well, come one, the packaging is adorable.
2. Stila Liquid Liner
I am a huge liquid liner girl, it’s pretty much the only type of eye liner I’ll ever use. My favorite liners are those that come in pen form like the Stila liner. I use to use the Ulta store brand, but after growing tired of them wearing off during the day I went in search of a longer lasting product. I’m happy to say that I’ve found it in this liner. It’s water-proof and comes in a few nice colors, so it’s perfect for all day wear.
3. Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel
I’m always looking for a better foundation-type product. I hate the look and feeling of 99% of all of the foundations I’ve ever tried, powder or liquid. And while I had good luck with BareMinerals’ BareSkin Liquid Foundation, it made my skin look almost air-brushed (which, weirdo that I am, I grew to not be too fond of over time) so I still wanted something that didn’t feel as heavy, and looked more like just my skin. This is basically a basic tinting moisturizer with sunscreen. It doesn’t have a makeup feel, it goes on and looks like my actual skin, has buildable coverage, and gives my skin a glowing and dewy finish. I’ll definitely have to do a more thorough review later.
4. Philosophy Amazing Grace Perfume
I’m a bit of a perfume junkie. But through the various perfumes I’ve tried and loved, this one is by far my favorite girly, light, spring-y perfume. It’s perfect for spring and just seems to fit my personality very well.
Remember the 90’s when scrunchies were all the rage? Well I’ve fallen in love with them all over again! There are so many cute designs and styles, and I’ve been using my creamy coral scrunchie with silver sequins a lot. Scrunchies add an awesome fun pop of color and style to your hair, and it amplifies my girly persona while I’m getting down and dirty in scrubs at work. Bonus: when not in use they make adorable bracelets!
6. Bauble Bar Arrow Necklace
This was sent in my PopSugar Must Have box from February, and I was so excited when I saw it because I’ve been dying to have a necklace like this for the longest time. It’s gorgeous, delicate, and sparkly. It’s just enough to catch your eye, but doesn’t make too loud of a statement.
7. Michael Kors Sexy Amber Perfume
So I’ve got two perfume personalities. Girly, floral and sweet. And musky, sultry and sexy. This perfume fits into the later category. I was obsessed with this when I got a sample that came in a catalog, but was so sad when I saw the price on the bottle. Luckily, my lovely mother saved the day by giving me her mini spritzer that she got around Christmas with a purchase she made at Ulta!
8. Bauble Bar Earrings
The necklace I got in February came with a discount code to Bauble Bar, so I went to see what kind of stuff they had. I found these beauties and decided I needed them, after all I’ve been searching for a nice set of replacement studs for my sterling silver lady bug studs. Like the necklace they are simple and pretty, and while they’re sparkly enough to get noticed while in close proximity, they aren’t an eyesore.
9. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush
I also got this in my PopSugar Must Have box from last month, and was excited because I’ve never tried anything from Tarte before. I was very pleased to find that the color they sent was a very flattering warm pink tone, and even happier that it lasts all day. It’s become my go-to blush since then.
10. Bare Minerals Moxie Lipstick in Express Yourself
This is my first step towards coral lipsticks, a baby one, but a step nonetheless. I love the texture of the BareMinerals lipsticks and glosses, and it’s great how pigmented it is. It’s perfect for spring.
And there you are my beautiful geeks, my 10 favorite items from the last month. I hope you guys enjoyed the post. What items did you favor in March?
