March Beauty Favorites!!

Spring is upon us which means SPRING LOOKS – bright lips, bronzed glowy skin, and full lashes! I discovered so many new amazing products last month, both drugstore and high end, that I couldn’t put down!

SKINCARE/BODY CARE:

MAKEUP:

  • L’oreal Pro-Glow Foundation – a new staple in my collection! I love this on it’s own or mixed in with other full coverage foundations! It gives the most gorgeous, healthy, perfect coverage look!!
  • L’oreal Pro-Matte Foundation – this is definitely MATTE! Too much so for me to wear on it’s own but I love mixing it with Pro-Glow! It’s been my go-to foundation cocktail this month!
  • L’oreal Foundation Blender – I’ve purchased I think 4 of these by now! They are one of the best beauty sponges I’ve used, and the price (($8!!)) is unbeatable!!
  • L’oreal Voluminous Eyelash Primer – my HG Dior lash primer changed in formula so I had to find a replacement, and this is as close as I’ve come! It really coats your lashes so that the mascara binds to the primer!
  • Cover FX Illuminating Primer – this has become my FAVORITE illuminating primer! It gives your skin a beautiful glow under any foundation!
  • Benefit Twinkle Highlighter – such a soft pink feminine highlighter! I’m obsessed!
  • Benefit Hoola Lite – I’m light enough that this works for me as a bronzer! I think it layers beautifully with a liquid/cream bronzer for an effortless bronze!
  • Fiona Stiles Multidimensional Color Palette – I haven’t been able to put this down ((I have a full review HERE))!
  • Milani Baked Bronzer in ‘Dolce’ – a Kathleen Lights induced purchased and I’m so happy with it! It has gold veining running through the bronzer for a more luminous finish!
  • NARS Blanc De Sable Highlighting Palette – endless highlighter combinations ((full review HERE))
  • Ardency Inn Modster Eyeliner in ‘Gold’ – I wore this so much in March! I use it for my ‘light makeup’ looks on the upper and lower lash lines for a little extra something!
  • LipSense ‘Kiss For A Cause’ color and Glossy Gloss – this gloss is EVERYTHING! So moisturizing that I even use it as a night treatment! And the bright pink shade is perfect for Spring!
  • NYX Lip Liner in ‘Nude Pink’ – a gorgeous effortless and affordable liner!
  • Huda Beauty Lip Liner in ‘Bombshell’ – I wear this with most nudes!!
  • Make Up For Ever Lip Liner in ‘3C’ – another effortless no fuss liner!
  • Essence Matt Matt Matt lipstick in ’01’ – a beautiful peachy nude! The formula and price are killer!!
  • ColourPop Shadow in ‘Amaze’ – the perfect amount of champagne sparkle for any eye look!
  • Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist – a great setting spray although my mister is a little clogged, I’ll have to purchase another one to see if that mister works any better ((fingers crossed!!))

NEW Marc Jacobs Bronzer – First Impressions and Comparison Swatches!!

Summer collections are coming in hot!! I’ve had my eye on a handful of the products from the new Marc Jacobs ‘coconut’ line! I’ve already purchased and reviewed the Dew Drops Coconut Highlighter and received a sample of the Re(cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist, which I’m not a huge fan of – the mister is awful. I’m looking forward to the new glosses to hit Sephora as well! BUT!! I was most excited about the new ((and only limited edition item from the collection – weird)) bronzer! The O!Mega Bronze Coconut Perfect Tan in ‘104 Tan-Tastic’ is SO eye catching in the slim white packaging and promised coconut scent! I couldn’t find ANY comparison swatches of the new bronzer versus the original bronzer in ‘Tantric 102’!! So I made sure to include swatches of the two bronzers side by side along with my first impressions!
