March Favourites!

Hey Guys!
I didn't have too many new favourites this month since I've been using a lot of old products...I know April will be huge as I purchased a lot of new things at the end of March which I love, but need to use a bit longer to make sure they are "favourites" worthy.

Scott Barnes for Motives Cosmetics "The Present": I have a full review on this here. In short, it is perfect for travel and the quality of cosmetics is excellent! I especially love the light beige matte eyeshadow which I've been using almost every day as a highlight/all over lid colour as well as the translucent powder to set my makeup.

Sigma F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki: I've been using this everyday for my foundation and it works perfectly at buffing in my NARS Sheer Glow. I've been liking more dense brushes for applying foundation as opposed to my trustee MAC 187 Duo Fibre as they provide a better, more even/flawless coverage. I will be having a full review on this brush, as well as other Sigma HD Brushes in the next week or so.

Origins VitaZing Moisturizer SPF15: This is my new daytime HG moisturizer. I've been wearing foundation much less since I've found this moisturizer. I also like using this and then applying my foundation. I can't say enough good things about this moisturizer. For a full review, click here.

Make Up For Ever Waterproof Brow Corrector #3: I've been neglecting this lately since I found the ELF Brow Kit, but now I am back to using this and it is definitely my HG brow product. I haven't even made a dent in this tube and I've used it almost everyday since I purchased it (except for when I was on my ELF Brow Kit kick...LOL).

MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC20: I bought this earlier in the month because I had a breakout from my MAC Pro Longwear Foundation. This is perfect for covering blemishes and is my HG Concealer for under eyes as well (except I use NW25). I don't understand why MAC doesn't carry an NC25 in this concealer... I thought that was a popular colour?

MAC Mighty Aphrodite Blush: I bought this when the MAC Wonder Woman Collection first came out, but haven't used it much because I was hooked on the Pink Power MSF. Everyday I wore this blush last week I got a complement on how I looked...I attribute it to this blush! LOL It gives my cheeks the perfect glow/colour. Just before taking this photo I accidently dropped the blush! I've never broken ANY of my makeup before (this is such a big surprise to me) and it saddens me to look at the small chip in the side of the blush. *sigh*. Have you ever broken a makeup product you love?!


  1. Luckily I'm pretty good with not breaking stuff... my poor roomie broke TWO pans of MAC Woodwinked though!! Uggh so sad! :(

  2. Hey!Nice favourites.I broke my "Dainty" mineralize blush (my first blush from mac)and well I felt sad for a little while but then I got my second mac blush and got over it!

  3. I shall have to try some of these the wonder woman blush is super pretty, i know how you feel about breaking make up i HATE that soooo much, I always do it with my bronzers especially x

  4. I heard about that blush from Hollyannaeree on youtube and I really like the color : D I may check it out at the MAC counter next time I go..

  5. I was really curious about those blushes from Wonder Woman, it looks fabulous! Sorry you chipped it, at least the damage is minor! :)

    I definitely wanna get the vitazing moisturizer too! I worry though, if it's 'tint' will still work with my slightly darker skin

  6. Great favs! I think that MAC studio finish in NW25 looks less natural and darker than NC30 if that makes any sense haha.

  7. i've broken makeup that i love...not that many but it truly break my heart! sorry you have a small chip!
    love your header!!

  8. that MAC concealer is my HG too. It covers so amazingly and totally gets rid of redness and blemishes. I just dust studio fix powder over it and it creates the perfect canvas for the rest of my makeup :)

    I would love to see pics of how that blush looks on :)

  9. Vitazing seems to be all the rage lately - I might have to give it a try after Project 10 Pan is over. Do you think the MUFE Brow Corrector would be good if my brow hairs are thin and sparse? I fill them in with powder usually because I don't like for them to look painted on.

  10. You're really making me wants to get that Origins moisturizer!


  11. I love your birthday makeup! So pretty. I have broken a MAC eyeshadow before that was barely used, it broke into little pieces.. you can fix it though! You have to get some 99% ispropyl alcohol and mix the powder right back into the pot with a few drops of the alcohol. Because of the high alcohol content it evaporates and your makeup is good as new! It saved my eyeshadow!!!

  12. I think I need to try the makeup forever brow stuff...their products rock! And this is the 2nd time I think you've featured it in your faves! =)
