March Favorites

Sharing a few of my favorite things from the month of March.
Even though the weather has yet to show spring- we have the coldest 55 degrees you will ever experience- I have been itching to break out some of my warm weather favorites.
Here are my almost spring make up faves.

First up is the Tangle Teezer. A new handbag essential!
I've heard of the hype and was curious...but not being an online shopper and never seeing this store stopped me from purchase, until I saw it one day in Urban Outfitters and in my basket it went.
I don't know how it works really, its pretty simple looking but the shape makes it so easy to brush through the hair everyday and really does help de tangle.
I usually carried my Mason Pearson brush in my bag but felt bad because it was starting to look banged up. This I just toss in my bucket of a bag since its just plastic and so light and I feel no guilt! Also the color makes it really stand out in my purse for an easy spotting.

My current everyday eyeshadow is the NARS All About Eve Duo. While I had swatched the now infamous Narssist palette in store a few times...I knew I would just get more use from this duo and purchased this instead.
I know from first glance you are's quite bland...
And you're right, it is.

I've come to the realization that most eye shadows just don't look good on me, or at least I don't think they do-so I've been sticking to shades like these to just make my eyes look bigger, brighter, and since these shades are so neutral when I mess up, no one can even tell!

L'Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black finishes off my eyes. One of my favorite from the drugstore. Best lengthening mascara I've found in the aisles of CVS while still holding the curl. Thumbs up!

The spring part of my make up is my blush. Bobbi Brown's Fresh Melon Pot Rouge has been gracing the cheeks for that showcase of color. My skin is still pretty pale so this blush on me looks bright! The blush pulls pretty peachy on me and I love it, but I would only recommend this to pale skin ladies because once I go back to NC25 this will disappear on the skin, so I'm milking this while I'm still fair. And loving it.

Next up is my favorite lip gloss of the moment. I've had this in my stash and pulled it out one day thinking hmmm... pink brown...but on the lips I was thinking, wow pink BROWN works! This looks dull and too dark in the tube but on the lips it's perfect for everyday. My lips but better of course.
Laura Mercier's Lip Glace in Blush

My final  favorite are these sheet masks.
The Cel Derma Hydro gel masks

My cousin from Korea sent me a pile of these masks along with most of the female members of my family and they are great! Especially for the winter. The hydrogel is very moisturizing and hydrating without feeling heavy in the slightest. Once you remove the masks most of the gel has been absorbed into the skin leaving it supple and bouncy. These masks can be found on eBay and Amazon but the review on Amazon said they were old, but if you have the opportunity to try these, I say they are great. I think all skin types could benefit as it is not heavy nor greasy while being hydrating.
It reminded me of the Clinique Moisture Surge Line in mask form.

And that's it!
Hope you enjoyed my favorites for the month, now please share yours!


  1. Love the look of that All About Eve duo!! I'm making a super duper concerted effort to practice eye looks, but I don't know...I just love the look of a clean eye with a hint of my lids but better color! Maybe I'm so used to wearing it lol :-) Thanks for sharing your favs!

  2. I am so with you on purchasing one or two colors from a palette instead of the whole thing to get more use out of it. I did that with NARS Brousse instead of the gifting palette at the time. I'm enjoying a lot of NARS Cairo lately. Also Too Faced Liquid Foundation or BB Cream because my skin isn't quite back to normal after this ridiculously long winter.

  3. Oo do you know where I would be able to find those masks in Korea?

  4. I bought the Narsissist palette and the shade from the All About Eve duo is my most used one. I'm quite bad at eyeshadow application, so at 6:30 in the morning is what I usually reach for. Love its finish, so I'm sure I'll buy the duo when I finish the one that comes in my palette.

    Love the look of Calypso Coral :) I'm now obsessed with Illamasqua Hussy and Laura Mercier Rose Petal <3
