March 2016 Beauty Favorites (Get a Snack)7:19 PM
Seriously, though. Go get a snack and something to drink because this post is probably going to be quite lengthy. I have a ton of products that I have been loving and all of them have earned a spot in my everyday stash. When you are a beauty blogger, that is quite a loaded statement. It is also how you know a product is truly great.
1.) Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette
There is a reason why everyone is talking about this palette. It is phenomenal. Too Faced has outdone themselves with this because the quality seems to be even better than any of their older palettes. Just get it. You'll thank me.
2.) Makeup Geek x MannyMUA Palette
This is another phenomenal palette. The colors are gorgeous and it is versatile. It has great neutral colors combined with more intense shades. I just adore it and I have been reaching for a lot.
3.) Palladio Crushed Metallic Eyeshadow
Until I bought these, I had never tried Palladio Beauty before. These shadows have really impressed me. They have great pigment and shine. I'll review the five I have soon so you can see why I love them so much.
4.) Wet n Wild Photo Focus Eyeshadow Primer
This is one of the best eyeshadow primers I have ever tried. There is no need to spend extra money with this one on the market. My eyeshadows goes on well, it doesn't crease, and it doesn't fade. It is clear and dries down to a somewhat powdery finish.
5.) Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit in Gleam
These are some intense highlighters, which is why they are amazing. The texture is amazing and they blend out well.
6.) Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Craft
This is the first liquid lipstick by Anastasia Beverly Hills I have ever tried, and I love it. The color and the formula are perfection.
7.) Ulta Suncare Sunscreen Lotion For Face
I needed a new sunscreen, but I didn't want to spend a ton of money. I saw a lot of positive reviews on this one, so I drove over to Ulta and got it. Turns out it was on sale, so I went ahead and bought two. I am happy that I did because it is great. It isn't greasy, it absorbs quickly, and it doesn't give your skin that irritating white cast that sunscreens can do.
8.) ColourPop Creme Gel Liner in Exit
This is perfect for the water line because it does not budge. At all. It does a fantastic job of making your eyes look more open and alert.
9.) Kardashian Beauty Dry Conditioner
I had no idea that dry conditioner was even a thing until a few weeks ago. But if you have drier hair, give this a try. I love it a lot more than a dry shampoo. Some people might be put off by the peppery, earthy scent, though. Personally, I love it.
10.) Urban Decay Sheer Revolution Lipstick in Sheer Liar
I bought this on the day Ulta had these lipsticks for $11. The color is perfect for "no makeup" days or when you need a toned down lip. I like that it leans more pink on me and it feels hydrating. I love long wearing lipsticks, but this is a nice break.
11.) ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip
These are one of the best liquid lipsticks I have ever tried. It is long wearing, but not matte. It feels very comfortable, lasts all day, and the pigment is outstanding.
12.) NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me
I've never been into blush, but I am slowly changing. Mauve Me is a beautiful everyday shade, but it has a slightly unique feel to it. The pigment is great, but not over the top. It is also easy to blend and stays on all day.
13.) L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation
There has been a lot of hype around this foundation since it launched. I have oily skin and I like a fuller coverage foundation, so I finally caved and bought it. I am happy I did because it is the best drugstore foundation I have ever tried. It actually stays on and it has great coverage.
14.) Wet n Wild Contour Brush
For a $1 brush, this thing is amazing. Oh, and I actually use it for my blush. It applies product so evenly and blends everything out very well. Blush the new Wet n Wild brushes are pretty and stand out in my brush collection.
I've never been a fan of bronzer because when you are as fair as I am, things can go badly very quickly. However, I figured it was time for me to challenge myself. I saw NikkieTutorials use this in a video and I thought it would be a good place to start. It has been amazing! It adds just the right amount of warmth and it doesn't look dirty or muddy. It doesn't apply patchy, and it smells like chocolate.
That list actually ended up being shorter than I expected. There have been a lot of good releases this year, and I have also discovered some older items that I never expected to like. I can't wait to see what April brings.
I hope you have a great weekend!
