March is here and it truly feels like Spring is upon us! I’m sitting here writing this blog post and it’s 55° here in New Jersey! I’m going to miss the Winter because I’m a cold whether person, but this past weekend, I spent some time in my yard, and I cannot wait to enjoy the outdoors! Anyways – enough about the weather! I discovered some amazing products this month, and as always, I’m super excited to share them with you today!
So I wasn’t going to indulge in this mascara, but the Tarte SnapChat girls did a good job at convincing me to order it. I got sucked in and I’m glad that I did because this is currently my favorite mascara! This mascara has everything… it lengthens, it curls, it volumizes… I love it! I have short, kind of thick lashes, and it takes a really good mascara to make them pop! I’m looking in the mirror right now and my lashes look so long and full, I would say it’s the next best thing to falsies!
Dare I start talking about this setting spray? Do you want me to go off on a rant? Because, I will! However… I will try to control myself. This spray is freakin’ awesome! I reviewed this product a few weeks ago, and I can’t say enough amazing things about it! This lightweight spray sets makeup and provides instant illumination to your skin. The fine mist contains very soft sparkle (a subtle liquid highlighter, if you will), and my skin just gloooowwws!!!! I don’t only use this to set my makeup because I like to drench my skin in setting spray, but I use a bit of this after my normal spray because I want that subtle glow, in addition to the intense highlight that I usually rock on my cheekbones. It’s just so awesome!
Speaking of the need to glow, Jouer’s Citrine is my current favorite highlighter! I stalked Christina Zilber’s SnapChat, anxiously awaiting the news that this highlighter was coming back in stock. It was out for a looooong time (or it seemed like a long time anyway), so as soon as it came back to the website, I ordered right away. This light, shimmering gold highlighter is so perfect for my skin tone! Sometimes gold powders don’t blend very well into my skin, but this powder with its ultra fine pearls and luminescent pigments create the most perfect glow, and I’m obsessed!
I’ve been looking for a nude gel eyeliner for awhile now! I have a little trick with my eyeliner… no matter what color I’m using, I love dipping my pencil into a gel pot for a more intense look. Is it necessary? No… but I’ve been doing it forever. I usually opt for a nude liner because I want my eyes to appear more awake and lively. A nude or white liner usually does the trick at brightening my eyes. While I have a few nude liners that did it for me, I wanted a gel liner as well. I forget how I discovered this one from INGLOT, but ever since I got my hands on it, I cannot go a day without it! All of INGLOT’s gel eyeliners have intense pigment, as I’ve used a few of them in the past and love them. This nude liner is full coverage and glides on beautifully. I truly feel as though it has made a huge difference in how my eyes look and I just love it! I only use a little bit each day, so the best part is, I know it’s going to last forever!
Milan has to be the most beautiful red in the whole wide world! The sad part… it was exclusive to OFRA’s Lip Affair Collection for Valentine’s Day (hence outline of the product on the photo!). So if you don’t have the shade, I’m sorry to tell you that it’s a favorite of mine! I love OFRA’s liquid lipstick formula,, so when they paired it up with a perfect red and it was everything! There’s not much more to say… I love OFRA and I love red lipsticks and I have to somehow make this beautiful shade last forever!
I’m always on the lookout for a good exfoliant, and I think I’ve officially discovered my favorite one! The Pixi Peel & Polish is simply amazing! It’s probably the most gentle exfoliator I’ve ever used, so gentle, you may even question it’s effectiveness. But trust me when I say it’s incredible and makes my skin feel amazing. The scent is so fresh (like cucumber), and my skin is left feeling soft, smooth, and healthy!
The queen of makeup, NikkieTutorials, uses this mask all the time and loves it! If she’s into it, then I knew I had to give it a try! And she’s right… it’s pretty damn amazing! I use a variety of masks, but this is a must for me at least once a week. I brush this on, let it sit for about 15 minutes, and after removal, almost instantly, my skin feels so much more alive, refreshed, and looks so bright! This is probably one of my favorite masks of all time… not just an OFRA favorite!
And there you go! Stay tuned for next month!
