Five Favorites: March 2013

So this post is a little late, I meant to write it last week but life got in the way of course. I hope you enjoy checking out the five products I picked for the month of March :)


Vaseline Spray & Go 
Moisturizer

”Vaseline

I received this a month ago in the Influenster Sugar N Spice VoxBox and I never heard of it before so I was really curious to see if it worked. The whole point of this product is to be able to moisturize in seconds so you can put your clothes right on. The directions say to hold the can 4 inches from the skin and spray over your body in one continuous motion. Then quickly rub into skin and go. I have to say, I'm impressed! The idea is genius, especially for when your in a rush. After spraying this on my extra dry skin I can immediately feel it soaking up the moisture. My skin felt silkier and smoother right away and not greasy at all. The scent is light and refreshing and the nozzle has a lock when you turn it which is cool so you don't accidentally spray it. I believe it said a bottle cost around $7 on the Influenster card.

Bare Minerals Tinted Mineral Veil

I've had this product for a while now, it came in the Bare Minerals Starter Kit I got last year. I never really tried it, so it's been hidden in the back with all my other powders. I came across it recently and really tried it this time. Ever since then I've been using it over my foundation. It helps to create that flawless look, and it also makes my pores less visible. Even though it's the "tinted" mineral veil I really don't see much color at all. But I like that so I can use it as almost a finishing powder. I can't imagine not using it everyday over my foundation. It's become one of my holy grail products. I'm going to try and find this on Amazon or Ebay so it's cheaper than $20.


NYC Matte Me Crazy Topcoat

”NYC
I go through stages where I'm really into the matte finish and lately I've been in that stage. I recently picked up NYC Matte Me Crazy top coat. I was a little hesitant since it was only a few dollars but it works really well. I have the Butter London Matte top coat which is obviously a lot more expensive and I think NYC works just as good, if not better. I love finding a drug store product that works just as good as a high end product. It gives you the perfect matte finish in one simple coat. I got this for $2.99 at Walmart 


Urban Decay Glinda Palette

I won this palette from the Pretty in Pocket App Launch Giveaway along with some other cool products. I was especially excited about trying this though. The Glinda palette is one of the two limited edition palettes inspired by the movie "Oz the Great and Powerful". It comes with 8 different eyeshadows, the 24/7 glide-on eye liner pencil in purple and the Super Saturated High-Gloss lip color in Glinda, a soft pink color. The colors are so pigmented and vivid, it's a mixture of some dark shades and some lighter shades. I really like it because these are colors I don't own in my collection. I love each color and you can create so many different looks with this palette. I didn't purchase this but I know they sell it at Sephora for $49.00


Physicians Formula Shimmer Custom 
Eye Gel Liner

”physiciansformula

I saw these on sale at Target for $4 and there originally $10 so I couldn't pass it up . That is an amazing deal because you are getting 3 different eyeliners. I got the set for blue eyes and this trio comes with a navy blue, a brown and a black that has a tint of blue shimmer. It comes with a brush too but I use my own. I like using gel liner when I'm lazy and don't feel like applying liquid. These liners go on nice and easy, and I like that I can either make a fine line or more of a dramatic line. The navy blue isn't so dramatic that I can't wear it for a daytime look which is good. After using them and knowing how great they are I would have spent the $10 on them.  Their also budge proof, it won't come off even a little unless you use makeup remover. I hate any type of liner that smudges or fades a few hours later. I would compare these to some high end gel eyeliners, that's how good they are. If you like gel eyeliner I recommend them.

Have you tried any of these products?

  6. I am a BIG fan of the bare minerals product line. That is the very first mineral makeup I ever tried. It's so light...I can't imagine going back to any other type of cream or liquid foundation.
