March Favorites: Beauty.

Happy best day of the month!

This month has been rather mundane on the beauty front – I’ve been using a bunch of the same old things! Favorites are favorites and I can’t lie about it. I’m hooked on the same stuff.

Daily routine right now is Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue, Urban Decay Naked concealer, Benefit Gimme Brow and mascara of choice. Sometimes I will use a bit of Urban Decay Sin shadow and sometimes not. I usually throw on a little blush or bronzer if I have a second and I’m good to go! On the weekends I take a little more time but not a ton. I don’t even know me. Wahhhhh. This month, I’ve used a ton of dry shampoo (it’s been a rough month, ha) and am trying the brown shade again because it was all that was available at Target. I didn’t like it before, but so far, so good.

Onto this month!

Sunday Riley Good Genes. My obsession with all things SR continues, and as you can see I actually shattered this jar two weeks ago – but it’s okay! I can still get the product out so all is good. My face has been so weirdly textured lately and this is definitely helping. Sometimes I combine it with the Luna Oil but sometimes I’m also lazy and/or forget one or the other. This has been my go-to in morning and night. Next, I want to try the Flora oil!

Essie Go Ginza. Favoritest spring shade in all the land. Enough said.

Josie Maran Argan Body Scrub. I’m a scrub-a-holic and since I had Max, love having a “fancier” scrub in the shower for pampering. I finished up the Fresh cocoa scrub and while I loved it, it also looked like coffee grounds covered my shower for days. I didn’t have time after every shower to hose the entire thing down. So this was my next purchase and it’s the softest, smoothest scrub ever. I might even like it better than my real favorite, the tree hut sugar scrubs. And the scent is so nice!

Stila Huge Lash Mascara. For an entire year now I’ve been losing it over the Benefit Rollerlash and while that definitely hasn’t changed, this has become a surprising favorite over the month. It was an impulse purchase after my friend Kristen told me how much she loved it and me, the product junkie, had to get it. It’s one of those mascaras that I didn’t like immedaitely but once it dried out a bit, I started LOVING IT. I love it so much right now! I’m not sure if it will replace the Rollerlash for me because I like the Rollerlash from start to finish (no drying out) – but I might have one of these on hand occasionally. It makes my lashes look so long!

Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. It is possibly the most “springy” smelling scent I have – even with the cardamom – and I’ve been using it nonstop since I’m in such a warm weather mood. I want the hand soap too, because why not flush $45 down the drain? WAH.

Kate Somerville Exfolikate. I rarely use products this like since my skin is so dry, but since my skin has been so lack luster this month, I’ve added it in once a week. Super LOVE this. It’s gentle and I leave it on for 30 seconds or so like recommended. Combined with the Good Genes above, my skin is feeling so much better. I might splurge and get the larger size too – this smaller one was in the Sephora aisle of doom.

Formula X Cuticle Erase. I know I talk about this ALLTHETIME but I figured it was worth another mention because at the beginning of the month, I shared this with my cousin when we were away for a weekend wedding. And she was crazy over it. She agreed that truly, with one use, it transforms your nails and cuticles. It’s a savior.

Clinique Wow Pop. These lipsticks are always stashed in my diaper bag so a lot of times I don’t have them right on me. But man, I used this one all month and I forgot how comfortable and moisturizing this formula is on the lips. And I sometimes need a little break from all the matte lips. And! I almost feel like this is foolproof and I barely need a mirror?

Dior Lip Glow in Lilac. I’ve been a Dior Lip Glow fan for years but they just released a lilac shade (!!!!) and my cool toned, purple-loving freak flipped out. This shade is a lot more flattering on me and right now, I’m all about things that I can stash away and throw on in a hot second. Plus, it’s moisturizing too. And it has SPF!

That’s a wrap! This month was super boring to me so I’m looking forward to April, woohoo. I really want to try a Sunday Riley daily SPF, but it vanished from the internet before I could get it. I also want a ton of Bite Beauty amuse bouche lipsticks (I bought pickled ginger and am really liking it so far) and the Urban Decay Complexion Perfecter. What are you loving at the moment? Tell me tell me, I need some retail therapy!
