Happy March! I'm counting down the days till spring because I'm sick of all this cold and snow! The picture above describes exactly how I feel about the winter this year. So spring, hurry up already! Anyway, onto the favorites. It's been a quiet month in terms of beauty products since I've been feeling that natural, but put together look.
1-The Lorac Pro palette- I love this palette, it sneaks past the Naked palettes in terms of versatility because it includes all shades of neutrals like a purple, rust, and a slate. I always bring this with me when I travel as well since it's so slim and lightweight.
2-Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep- So, I tried the Anastasia Dipbrow pomade in three colors, chocolate, dark brown, and ebony and did not like any of them. They all seemed too warm for my hair coloring so I returned them all. Now I use this in conjunction with the Shu Uemura brow pencil in stone grey or the Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ebony. What I love the most is the small brush it comes with, it always makes for precise application and leaves no mess. My brows look natural but detailed at the same time.
3-The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream- I got this for free during The Body Shop's Christmas giveaway and love it. I'm a fan of rose scents so I love slathering this on. The cream itself is airy, lightweight, and absorbs very easily into the skin. I have the almond scented one by my bed to use on my hands and feet at night.
4- Shu Uemura Hard Brow Pencil in Stone Grey- On days where I don't wear makeup, I usually use this on its own. When I use quick strokes of this on my brow, it creates a soft, full look. While this is pretty pricey for an eyebrow pencil, this thing will last for ages because a little goes a long way. I do not recommend this for anyone who has really, sparse brows. It won't draw on brows like the Brow Wiz.
5- BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Rebel- I love minty glosses so I knew right away I would enjoy these. I believe Rebel is the one of the few cream finishes in the line. There is a slight tack and a bit of a tingle, not crazy lip plumping burn your lips off tingly, but it does plump lips slightly and decreases the appearance of lip lines.
6- NARS Pressed Light Reflecting Setting Powder- This is an awesome setting powder. When you first get it, you need to, in a sense, scratch the surface with a real haired brush and then the powder is magic. No cakiness at all and it makes my skin look flawless. If I really want to look super ethereal, I'll dust on some Houglass Ambient Lighting Powder on my high points and call it a day.
Hope you enjoyed the post! Also hope you are staying warm in this very blustery weather!
