The Best of March 2010

Here's my month of March favorites.


1.) NYC Matte Bronzer (Sunny)
love love love this matte bronzer, perfect for contouring the cheeks & elongating the nose
2.) Wet n Wild Ultimate Mineral Loose Blush (Barely Peach)
my first time using a loose powder blush & this one go on so smooth & very pigmented
3.)  LUSH's Grease Lightning
at first i thought it wasn't working because it doesn't give me that "stingy"feeling like my other spot treatment did, but I noticed that it's really drying my pimples. And it's gone after 2 days!
4.)  NYX Round Lipstick (Circe)
many people love it, some hate it! but i'm one of the many people that loves this extremely nude, almost concealer like lipstick. its perfect for erasing the color of your lips, especially if you have pigmented lips like me. it's also perfect for toning down bold color lipsticks.
5.) Maybelline's Lash Stylist --DISCONTINUED
i got this mascara in a swap & i loved it! it lengthens & thickens my lashes like no other mascara ever has. the wand is pretty unique  (looks like a comb) so it separates lashes while it does the job of both lengthening & thickening the lashes.
6.) Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner Pencil
my ultimate fave eyeliner! works as well as the mac kohl liner. but the only difference is, it's a drugstore brand, hence, less expensive. never will i ever try other eye liners ever again. this is my HG!
7.) MAC Studio Finish Concealer (NW25)
not so sure if this is my right shade, but it works pretty well for me. this little container of concealer  lasts me for over a year. so even if it's $16.50, i will definitely buy it every year just because it has amazing coverage & i love it's thick consistency because it doesn't rub off too easily.
8.) LUSH's Enzymion
talk about oil control! this moisturizer isn't only made with all natural ingredients but also helps eliminate unnecessary oil on my face. it leaves my face feeling matte, fresh & squeeky clean.
9.) LUSH's Fresh Farmacy Facial Soap
my HG on skincare! that's all i can say! 
10.) Barry M Lip Paint (Orange)
my new love! quite an unusual lip color, but combined with NYX's circe lipstick, it is amazing! 
11.) NARS' Duo Concealer (Ginger/ Custard)
applies smooth, consistency is very build-able. perfect for concealing under eye circles. 
 
12.) Femme Couture Gel Liner (Black)
my other HG when it comes to lining my lids. love love this eyeliner! it doesn't smudge on me, stays on the whole day. (pretty water resistant too, if i may say so myself) just as good as MAC's fluid line in black track. but this one only cost me $5.99
13.) Sleek Palette (Storm)
amazing colors, very pigmented & smooth to the touch. perfect for everyday/night look. this palette has everything you need to create the perfect smokey eye. i'm totally hooked on these palettes. I WANT MOREEEE! hehe!
14.) Stila's Illuminating Powder (Rose Gold)
amazing for giving your cheeks a healthy glow or a bit/ alot of shimmer.
15.) MAC Paint Pot (Soft Ocher)   
i use this as an eye shadow base & it never cease to amaze me. my eye shadows seem to appear more vibrant & stays on for hours on end when i use this as base. 
16.) LUSH's Tea Tree Water Toner
so far the best toner i've ever used! gotta love my lush <3
17.) MAC #222 Brush
blending is key to create amazing looks without having those harsh lines. love this brush!
18.) ELF's $1 Blending Brush
for only $1 how bad could it be? but this thing is absolutely amazing, giving my 222 brush a run for its money. haha! this brush is amazing for blending out the harsh lines from my eye shadows & for only $1, how could i ever complain.

  17. wahhhhhhhh?!?!?!? lash stylist has been discontinued??!? omg, that's been my hG ever since it came out 3085340958340958 years ago lol
    i used the WP formula for the longest time... i obviously havent been giving it much love though, otherwise i would have known it was discontinued :(
