Lily`s March Favorites

5 years ago

Shockingly, this is my first `Favorites` ever! I don`t know why I haven`t done one before, but I guess it`s never too late to start.

Let me start off with saying that during the month of March I`ve been working a LOT more than usual. A bunch of people have been quitting so I`ve been picking up extra shifts. On top of that I`m also a college student and full time mom, so I`ve been busy to say the least! Well, this month`s faves reflect that. I needed a makeup routine that I could throw together super quick, yet still look polished and put together!

So this is what made the cut:

<strong> 1. Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo in Bold Gold </strong>
I`ve been using this as an eyeshadow base for a quick wash of color and under other shadows and it lasts throughout my entire shift with no creasing. This gets an A+ from me!!!

<strong> 2. Neutogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup </strong>
This foundation leaves a gorgeous dewy finish without caking up. Plus, it feels almost weightless on my skin! My shade is 30 Buff.

<strong> 3. NYX Brush On Gloss in Natural </strong>
I LOVE this gloss! It`s one of those "my lips but better" type of shades, so reapplying is effortless since I don`t need a mirror. It also has a brush instead of a doe foot applicator which I prefer.

<strong> 4. Mac Blushbaby </strong>
This is definitely a warmer blush, almost like a dusty rose shade. I really like it be because it`s almost like a contour+ blush when I`m in a hurry. I just apply this right under the apples and right above the hollows of my cheeks.

<strong> 5. Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer </strong>
I received this in my Bare Minerals starter kit, but never really paid it much mind. Well that was a huge mistake because I love this stuff! It glides on nicely and leaves my face feeling smooth and flawless. This was only a trial size, so it`s only .5 oz. I`m nowhere near finished with it though, so it looks like I may get another months use out of this small tube. A little DEFINATELY goes a long way with this product! I`m actually thinking about getting the full sized bottle of this while Sephora is still having that 15% off promotion for Beauty Insiders.

<strong> 6. Buxom Insider Eyeliner in Chocolate Citrine </strong>
I ran out of favorite Milani Liquifeye eyeliner in Black this month, so while I was waiting to get another one I just reached for another liner I had lying around. During Sephora`s Black Friday sale I picked this up along with a Buxom mascara for 10 bucks. What I didnt notice until I got home was that this was a DARK BROWN liner, not black. So, it`s been neglected in makeup storage ever since. Well, I`m glad I was forced to give this a try. I`m a black eyeliner fiend, but I really like the subtle difference this made. It was a little softer and less harsh than a typical black liner!

<strong> 7. Maybelline Master Drama in Midnight Master </strong>
Don`t get me wrong, while I loved Chocolate Citrine, I still needed my black eyeliner fix! Lol. I`m one of those people who when they find something they like tend to repurchase over and over without trying something new. If it ain`t broke, don`t fix it. Well, although I usually always go for my fave Milani Liquifeye eyeliner in Black, it was annoying me how often I was having to sharpen it. Which was pretty much before every use since its such a soft pencil. I decided to take a gamble and go for the Master Drama because it`s the same concept of a liquid liner in pencil form, only it`s automatic, so NO SHARPENING.

<strong> 8. Wet N Wild Vanity Palette </strong>
6 gorgeous coordinating neutrals in one palette? Yes please :)
This has DEFINATELY been my best friend this month!!

<strong> 9. Loreal 24 Hour Infallible eyeshadow in Eternal Sunshine </strong>
I know I`m a little late to jump on this bandwagon, but I love this shadow. I recently picked up one more of the darker brown shades but I haven`t gotten around to using it yet. Eternal Sunshine is a really pretty golden shadow that I pair over my Bold Gold Color Tattoo.

<strong> 10. CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume </strong>
This is my HG mascara!!! I have somewhat long lashes, but they`re pretty skimpy. This amps up the volume for those va-va-voom lashes! Love this stuff! I`ve tried so many other brands and formulas but I always come back to this.

Thanks for reading!
