March Favorites!

I noticed that I have not done a favorites post in a good while. I have so many things to share with you all, but unfortunately, I just haven't had much time do to so. Ugh! I can't wait until the school semester is over in May so I can have much more free time. Thank you all for bearing with me. I really appreciate you all, my lovely readers!

Without further adieu, here are some of my favorite products that have been in constant rotation during the month of March. Spot any of your faves here? Please share in the comments :)

1. Maybelline FIT Me Foundation, shade 210 ($6.99)- I am still getting a feel of this foundation, and a review is coming very soon. I have been wearing it loads lately, and so far, I quite like it. It gives my face a pretty, healthy looking dewy glow and it feels amazing on my skin. It feels as if I have nothing on! 

2. Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder ($28.00)- This bronzer is amazing! I have literally been using it daily ever since I got it. I use this powder to contour, and it looks very lovely on. I like that this bronzing powder does not look orange on my face, and it looks quite natural, actually. Very easy to blend as well. I will review this bronzer shortly, so stay tuned! 

3. Wet n' Wild Color Icon Trio in Silent Treatment ($2.99)- That taupe eyelid color is what really does it for me when it comes to this eyeshadow palette. For those mornings when I am in a rush to get ready to go to school, I just apply the taupe color all over the lids and I am good to go! If I want a more smokier look, I just add the dark brown crease color on my outer V, and blend. Simple as that. Seriously, if you don't have this eyeshadow trio in Silent Treatment, you need to have it in your life. I assure you all, you will not be left disappointed. Read my review, and see swatches HERE.

4. Estee Lauder Artist's Eye Pencil in Soft Smudge Black ($19.00)- I received this pencil eyeliner for Christmas, along with other Estee Lauder makeup goodies. I have never really ventured into Estee Lauder cosmetics, but this eyeliner is just great. It applies smoothly, it's creamy, and it's not super black. Sometimes I just want a soft black pencil liner to soften up my look on those days where I do not want my eyes too made up. I apply this pencil on my upper and lower lash line, and even to fill in my brows. It looks very natural and lasts all day.

5. Wet n' Wild Mega Length Mascara ($2.99)- This mascara is really great for lengthening purposes. It lifts my lashes, and gives me a natural look. Not to mention that this mascara is great for layering. Lately, I have been applying Cover Girl Lash Blast (great for achieving volume) mascara over the Wet n' Wild Mega Length one, and seriously, my lashes look gorgeous! Not only do my lashes have length, but volume as well. Click HERE for my review of it.

6. Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder To Go ($15.00)- I had recently ran out of the MAC Transparent Finishing Powder, so I decided it was a great chance to try a new one. I decided on this translucent finishing powder from Make Up For Ever. There is a fuller size available, but I ended up purchasing this try-me version instead to try out. I will review this powder soon but so far, so good. I have been using this powder to mainly set the concealer under my eyes and it helps it last much longer. I have yet to try it on my oily T-Zone area and see how well this powder helps control my super oily spots.

7. Rosebud Salve ($6.00)- I have come to the conclusion that I can't live without this lip balm. Click HERE for my review of it. It beats out all of the other lip balms I have tried in the past when it comes to moisturizing my lips and keeping them soft and supple all day. This is the third time I have purchased this balm. Funny story actually. The first rosebud lip balm literally melted. I had left it in my purse and unfortunately, I left my purse near a heater and you can pretty much guess what happened next. I had to purchase this lip balm again and sadly, the same thing happened once more! LOL! So, here is the third one. Let's see how long this one lasts before it melts. That is the only negative thing about rosebud salve lip balm. The balm is so soft, that it can easily melt. I wonder how this balm fares up come summertime? I may have to opt for the tube version instead.

8. MAC Blot Powder ($23.00)- I carry this pressed powder with me everywhere. It works great for mid-day oily T-Zone touch ups when I am on the go. Click HERE for my review on this powder from MAC.
