Hello March! I am excited to be into March, mostly because this is the month that spring comes back and I am really looking forward to spring, I am tired of this cold dreary winter and ready for some warmth and sunshine already. I am really ready for summer but spring will just have to do. Anyway, it is time to talk about some favorites, not so favorites and share my face like I do every month now.
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – I really can’t get over this powder, I am not really sure what it is about it but it’s really just the perfect powder and hands down the best one that I’ve ever used, once I used this up and a couple of other powders, I could see myself purchasing the full size, that is how much I love it.
Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer – This is new to the brand and this is supposed to be a dupe of the Tarte shape tape, I won’t say a whole lot about that because I plan on doing a dupes post eventually, but I will say this, I really love this concealer and can already see myself purchasing it again.
Lancome Juicy Shaker in Meli Melon – I don’t think it is any secret at this point that I really love these, this one is my favorite, it smells amazing, it’s really moisturizing and gives the slightest tint of color to the lips, which makes for an easy and quick application.
Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette – This was my palette pick for the month of February, unsurprisingly, look at this palette, it just screams February to me. But anyway, while this was the palette of the month this was also the eyeshadow I found myself reaching for the most, I am really into this one and am excited to play around with it even more.
Mac Prep + Prime Fix + Creamy Coconut – This probably needs to stop showing up in my favorites post but I love it, I used it with every makeup look that I do and it’s just a fantastic product, which is why I keep putting it here.
Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian – This is still going, I’m not sure how because I use it fairly often but it still lives. This is just an easy lip color to wear, it goes with everything and I can confidently put it on without a mirror.
Josie Maran Surreal Sin Argan Finishing Balm – I have the littlest bit of this left and I’m now facing the dilemma of purchasing the full size of this one. This just gives a really stunning glow from within, it’s really subtle but it is there and I’ve been loving using this when I want to look more glowy.
I debated not sharing my not so favorites with you guys this month because I only have one thing to share, but I’ve decided to share it anyway.
The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution – I tried to like this, I used 1/3 of the bottle trying to like this but I just don’t. The biggest reason why I have a beef with this product is that it makes my skin burn about half the time that I use it, I guess it might be a bit too strong for my skin so I have stopped using this and passed it along. Back to Pixi I go.
Eyes: Too Faced Shadow Insurance, Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette in Divinity, Cashew Chew, Cafe Au Lait and Malted, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Ultra Black, Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and NYX Faux Whites Eyeliner in Linen.

And those are all of my favorites, I feel like I have had a bit of a boring past couple of months makeup wise, probably because I have but I am trying to mix it up a bit this month, as you will see in my upcoming shop my stash post. Also, I did get a new camera and I am still messing around with it a bit, so hopefully my photos will start getting better here shortly.
What are some of your February favorites?
