March Beauty Favorites

Hello my fellow blog readers! Let's continue the trend from February with my March Beauty Favorites! 

2012 Sephora Blockbuster
Sephora does a new one of these blockbusters annually, mine is from 2012 but each year they contain about the same kinds of stuff with about the same quality as well. This box of beauty has everything you'll need to create your makeup look and it's great for experimentation! The quality is good, I especially love the gel liners they give you and the many colors of eyeshadow; if you're not into color, maybe try a different pallet with more nudes. My only qualm is that there are too many lip products. To me, lip products are for easy, on the go application...I definitely can't bring this gigantic block with me when I'm out so the glosses tend to be neglected. If you want to get one they come out around Christmas but variations of it are available all year round, keep your eyes peeled!

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tenacious Teal
I use this product as an eyeliner more than anything and boy do I love it! It's crease proof and lasts all day while making my brown eyes pop like no other! I've wanted this product ever since it came out. The first time I swatched it on my hand...lordy lord have mercy because I almost fainted seeing the most beautiful blue color in the world! It reminds me of the sea but sparkles like stars or some cosmic cloud in space. GET IT, you won't regret it!

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Pink Punch
At first I wasn't too impressed with this product even after all the hype but after prolonged use, I can say that it has made my lips softer and more supple while supplying moisture to them as well! They smell delightful and tint your lips a shade pinker than your natural color, this subtly brightens up the face giving you a fresh faced look. Perfect for spring and it's easy to carry with you! The packaging is super cute with tons of product packed inside. 

Hello Kitty Nail Polish in Minty
I've been searching for a minty, almost robin's egg bluey-green polish for ages and I'm quite satisfied with this cute number. I wore it at the beginning or March but I'll probably not be able to wear it again for a long time because of my job. Spring is pretty much pastel season so why not rock this dainty shade on your finger tips. It's an alright quality but still chips within a week...the bottle is so cute though, I'll probably keep it when it's gone just to decorate my dresser with!

Aussie Moist Shampoo
Bleaching my hair fried it, I already had frizzy and dry hair before the bleach job but this shampoo has really been helping me keep my hair soft and silky despite the trauma it's been through! I never believed any of the shampoo commercial gimmicks that say you'll have beautiful shiny hair after one use but Aussie may prove me wrong. I have tons of shampoos in my shower but I find myself continually reaching for this one because of the softness it gives my hair. It's cheap too! You could probably find it in any drugstore for 3 bucks or less! Just a quarter sized dollop on your palm to lather with and you'll have yourself a mop to be proud of!

Got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion

My hair needs all the help it can get! A friend of mine introduced this product to me to tame frizzy hair and I must say, it helps! You must make sure your hair is dry before applying and with a single pump from the bottle, you can smooth out any flyaways while adding softness and shine! It can also be used as a pre-heat styling serum to prevent your curled or straightened hair from turning frizzy as the day wears on! 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner
Did I ever mention my skin is an oily mess? I've never tried a better toner...EVER. I shake the bottle and squirt a little bit of this fluid into a cotton pad then smooth it out all over my face. Afterwards, your face will feel really hot and even tingly but that's just the tea tree and tamanu oils working to control your over active sebaceous glands! It has single handedly reduced the redness and size of spots on my face while controlling breakouts. Use it once a day so that you don't completely dry out your skin and you can enjoy your day having a fresh, blemish free face!

Olay 4 in 1 Daily Facial Cloths
I used to just use these wipes to wash my face but recently, I discovered that these wipes can take off makeup too! I used to use makeup remover oil to take it off but that could be quite a hassle with all the dispensing, wiping then dispensing again. All I need to do is wet the sheet and gently wipe off the foundation and mascara. It's simple but as a warning, it can be drying. If you use this often your eyes will need some help from an eye cream. The sheet is so big I cut it into quadrants for for times of use. Saves money and resources :)

A Touch of Africa Shea Butter
A multipurpose product that's truly amazing! I've mostly been using it for my hands but it works well as an all over moisturizer. My hands have never felt softer or smoother! It can smell a little funny but the smell does not linger on the skin. It's 100% unrefined too so I know all of the nutritious properties have been retained in the butter; the more refined she butter is, the less of its benefits remain in the oils.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter
It smells so good and it works so well! My go to moisturizer after showering. I must admit it does not soak in as fast as I would like it to but it does a very good job softening the skin and keeping it hydrated. The scent is just amazing! Like a delicious coconut cream that I almost need to stop myself from eating. The Body Shop has an amazing variety of these butters for different skin types, all with different scents! The pot is so adorable! I'll definitely find a use for it after I use it all up!
