March 2016 Favorites

Hey Beauties!

In March I've been testing a lot of new products and a lot of those ended up in my monthly favorites. It's been a very spring inspired month in terms of products and I hope it gets warmer soon. For some reason it's still not as warm as it should be and I'm getting impatient.


Innisfree Smart Foundation Perfect Cover - 13 Light Beige

This is in my favorites purely because of the shade. It's very light, actually the lightest foundation shade that I own and since I'm even paler now than I am in summer, this almost matches me perfectly. I always use too dark foundations and have to blend them down my neck, because non of them in the drugstores are light enough. This one is actually light enough, although I am not crazy about the coverage. I expected it to be full coverage, but it's very light medium. It's also a bit obvious on the skin. I'll talk more about it in a separate review.


theBalm Nude'tude Nude Eyeshadow Palette

I've been testing this and I already have my favorite shades. Review of this will be up soon, but until then I'll tell you that my absolute favorite shade is Seductive - very warm almost yellow toned light brown. I also really like Sultry - perfect warm matte brown for the crease and Sexy - matte purple burgundy shade. Eye shadows are really pigmented and they blend with ease. I'm not sure that they are as long lasting as Zoeva Cocoa Blend shades, but I'll have to test it a bit more to make up my mind completely. It's not my usual shade selection, because there is a lot of cooler shades, but the ones that I like are really pretty. 


Ebelin Precision Eye Brush

This is a very dense pointed brush with great precision. I use this around my lower lash line to darken it a bit. I like that I can apply it very closely to the lash line and no where else. It's also perfect for blending out pencils.

Essence Smokey Eye Brush

Another great brush for smoking out the eye shadow or pencils. It's a lot winder but almost shaped like a ball. It creates a soft haze around the lower lash line and I like that it pulls it a bit down. I've been really enjoying this.

Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner - Black

I don't believe I've mentioned this before, but this is my favorite liner in a pencil form. It's super soft and it almost melts onto the skin, that's why it's called gel eyeliner. I love to use this when I want a softer line. I apply it straight from the pen and then just blend it with the brush. It's very easy to blend and once it sets it doesn't move. If you have very oily lids, you'll need to set it with an eye shadow. 

Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara - 01 blondy brows

My brows have been getting bald spots, which they always do in spring and fall for some reason. So I need all the help I can get. I started using this brow gel mascara to make them look fuller. I use this first, then apply brow pencil and then go back in with this to shape them and set them. It's a great base, because it makes pencil stick on better. I also like the super mini brush, although it does have too much product on, so I always wipe it off a bit.


Essence Eyeshadow 15 hazle me not!

While I was browsing through new Essence products I also got a look at their matte eye shadows in hope of finding another great contouring shade. I've been loving this 15 hazle me not! to contour my face with. It's a lot lighter than Essence I Heart Nude in 05 My Favorite Tauping. This is for someone very fair and I am pretty fair in this time of year. It means I don't have to think about it, I can just apply it and really can't overdue it. It's a great grey based shade, although it has a tiny bit of sheen to it. I've been loving this, since I went lighter with my foundation. It gives me the most natural unnoticeable contour. I'll have a separate review. 


H&M Pure Radiance Powder Blusher - Brown Sugar

I can't say how much I love this blush. It's the most neutral matte blush that I own. It's brownish peach and I've been pairing it with my usual neutral brownish makeup. I love this, because it's not flat out matte, but still has some sheen. 

theBalm Hot Mama Blush/Shadow

Since I've been experimenting with bold bright lipsticks this month, I've also been loving this blush. It's coral, has a pink base with a very gold sheen and looks so pretty bright paired with bright lipsticks. It's my go to for glowy cheeks and  colorful lips. I'll post a review of it soon. 


Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipsticks (Marvelous Mocha and Ideal Lilac)

Whole matte range by Avon is just amazing. I've finally tested it a bit more since my lips have been in better shape this month. I've already mentioned my favorite shades in my review, but the two shades that have been outstanding this month are Marvelous Mocha, which is a lovely warm medium brown and Ideal Lilac, which is a crazy bright fuchsia shade. One is for my neutral looks and one for when I want something bold and colorful. 


Maybelline Color Show The Blushed Nudes - 447 Dusty Rose

Boy am I in love with this shade. Every time I paint my nails, I want to use this one. It's just such a pretty pastel lavender pink shade and perfect for the spring. It also lasts on me well. I have a review here



L'Occitane Folie Florale Petal-Soft Body Milk

I've already reviewed this. It's a lightly moisturizing body milk with a unique sweet fruity floral scent. I love the gentle spring scent of it and shea butter moisturizing layer that it creates on the skin. This is definitely a spring treat and I'm actually saving it for some warmer days so that I can smell it on me while wearing t-shirts. 


Avon Mesmerize Eau de Toilette

My absolute favorite scent of this month. It hasn't been as warm as I would have liked it, so I think I was gravitating more towards sweet fruity scents like this one. I adore the peach scent of it and later long lasting effect of sandalwood. It's the perfect sweet spring scent. I also love the bottle, because it's so easy to carry around. You'll find a review of it here

    1. Če se lahko vrinem, ti lahko povem, da je trši/gostejši in mi ni tako všeč kot prvi.

    2. Uf, še trši? Za moje veke je bil že prvi pretrd, sem upala, da bo ta kaj manj, ker me je tisti ful praskal... Hvala:)

    3. Jaz imam oba in stari je manj gost, malo bolj fluffy ampak se mi zdi kvaliteta dlak slabša. Mene bolj praskajo kot nov. Nov je gostejši in zato trši in ne blendira tako zelo kot star, ampak ima dlake zelo mehke. Bolj kot stari. :)

    1. Jaz imam še tudi ogledala neka senčila. Sem upala, da bodo imeli v spletni trgovini pa je zaenkrat še slabo založena. Da bi prišla do izdelkov pa moram dejansko v LJ :/ sucks.

    2. Mogoče pa bodo povečali ponudbo, vsaj kaj se beauty izdelkov tiče, ker Lj je nam kar daleč, če gledaš, da bi res šla samo zato tja. No, čeprav mini trips are always fun.

    1. Seductive je res čudovit. Niti ne vem če imam kak dupe iz drugih palet :). Hazel je meni zanimiv no..še svetlejši kot My Favorite Tauping in zdaj, ko sem res precej bleda mi kar paše :).

  4. A ta Ebelin čopič si pri nas kupila?
    Se pa že veselim ocene Essence senčke, bi mogoče poskusila še kaj drugega za contour kot pa Illamasqua duo :) Pa me je kar presenetilo, da se ti Zoeva senčke zdijo bolj obstojne kot The Balm, zdaj me še bolj mikajo :D

    1. Pri nas ja. :) To so take cheap variante za nas svetlopolte. Ne vem kaj je to...nisem želela preveč omenjati tukaj dokler res dobro ne preizkusim, ampak se mi thebalm senčke kar nabirajo v gubice po parih urah. Zoeva pa so ostale nepremične cel dan. Mogoče zato ker imam svež primer in moram zdaj še enkrat Zoeva preizkusit kako se obnesejo z njim :).
