LovelyLavenderWhips March 2012 Favorites Makeup Edition

5 years ago

Most of my favorites for the month are makeup items. I will first tell you about my favorite eye products starting with the base to all the finishing details that I use to make my favorite eye combos. My most used eyeshadow base has to be the Maybelline Color Tattoo Shadow in Bad to the Bronze this is the perfect start to any neutral eye this cream eyeshadow sets working as a base and is very comparable to MAC Paint Pots I find I like the Color Tattoo Shadows better. Moving onto shadows I love a neutral eye you can never go wrong and I tend to be wearing a lot of them as its Spring transitioning into summer and my purples will be coming out soon but I`m just not ready for them yet so I`m playing it safe my most used shadows are the Dior Rosy Tan Quint, Loreal Infallible Shadows in Iced Latte and Bronzed Taupe. I love high end makeup and when I say love I mean it I have thousands in MAC, Dior, Nars and more I have 2 Dior Quints and Rosy Tan has been the only one Ive used so far I originally pulled this out for a special occasion to wear to my cousins wedding now I find my self wearing it more and more it has everything I need right here in one palette. So since I`m more of a high end cosmetic kind of girl I will admit I tend to stay away from drugstore products like I don`t want to be associated with them. That`s not the case right now some companies are really stepping up their game and making real products that are comparable in quality to the high end deal and I found that with the Loreal Infallible shadows the quality is amazing the color pay off is to die for. I bought 3 of them and love all 3 equally but find I use the Iced Latte and Bronzed Taupe most for an easy 2 step eyeshadow eye. Finishing off the eye I always use mascara and liner. I am so stocked on mascara samples right now I`m try to use them up I won`t say this is my favorite but it is my current the Benefit Bag Gal Lash Ive heard such rave about this product but I just don`t see what it does for me unlike any other mascara I`ve used/tried. Last but not least MAC Blacktrack Liner no matter what color eye I do I have to have my black liner and this is the one I favor as its more intense than any pencil I might try.
I`m pretty easy going when it comes to lips their isn`t much variation in what I wear a nude lip tends to work for every look I do so I rarely change it up. To start my everyday lips I use the Sephora Native Nude Lip Liner I`m very unfamiliar with Sephora branded products but I had a hard time finding the most perfect pinky nude lip liner and they had it and ever since its been part of my 3 step lip I will not be changing lip liners anytime soon. The lipstick I use most is NARS Pago Pago I will admit when I first got this I hated it, it looked horrible on me until I tried putting it on over the liner once I did that I found it was the perfect combo for the perfect nude lips for me. Us girls know we always have to top the lips off with a nice gloss the one I`ve been using in my 3 step lip is MAC Plush Glass Wildly Lush I really do hate the smell of the plush glasses they smell like playdoh yuck but this gorgeous gloss puts the cherry on top of my 3 step lip sundae and I can`t live without it.
Like my lip products my face products rarely change I am set in my ways when I find something that works for me. My face routine is simple I don`t do any highlights or sculpting I don`t have the patience what I do use is the Makeup Forever Green Primer lets face it I have the most predominate red undertones in my skin it looks like I`m embarrassed all the time but this helps combat that so when I put on my foundation the Makeup Forever HD Foundation in 117 my redness is less noticeable. I have a hard time with blushes I`m a pale girl and its very hard to work with blushes getting them to look right without them looking overdone so I tend to stick to more natural looking shades the one I use most is the MAC Pink Power Mineralize Skinfinish from the Wonder Woman Collection. This is so pinky tan with a nice glow that I can get away with putting it all over my face and sometimes I do just so I have a nice glow. To set my face I use the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray I only purchased the travel size because I was unsure if I would like it at first I didn`t and I let it sit in my drawer for a few months now I have it back out and its almost gone I like this better than fix plus from MAC my eyes don`t crease I feel my makeup really stays and I will be purchasing the full size soon.
Phew... That`s over for the month I hope everyone enjoys my favorites and I will see you back here with my April 2012 favorites soon!
