March Finds

I cannot believe it is already April! March flew by -although I can’t pretend that I’m sad to see winter (FINALLY) go. I wanted to share some of my favorite finds of the month. I don’t have a ton of favorites but they are all products that I love and would definitely recommend. Definitely found some goodies this month that I will be using all throughout spring!

Daisy Marc Jacobs

I got this perfume for my birthday in the beginning of march and I have been obsessed with it all month. First of all, the packaging is just adorable. Tell me that doesn’t make you crave spring and summer. This is the perfect daytime perfume for spring. It is a very girly and pretty scent but is still sophisticated. It just smells fresh and playful. It has the scent of strawberry, violet leaves, ruby red grapefruit, gardenia, violet petals, jasmine, musk, vanilla, and white woods. To me, it smells like a fresh bouquet of flowers with a sophisticated feel – if that makes any sense at all. It is amazing! Trust me. It smells so pretty and perfect for warm weather. I’ve been wearing this to work and have been getting a lot of compliments from my coworkers. The scent lasts forever too – I leave for work at 8:30 and I am still getting told I smell great at 3:00 pm!

Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

I have been obsessed with messy, wavy, textured hair lately. I have naturally fairly straight and boring hair. This is one of the few products I’ve found that actually gives my hard to curl hair some wave! I love it. I’ve found that a lot of sea salt sprays leave my hair gross and knotty but this one is great! My go to hair style has been sleeping with my wet hair in a bun, waking up, and spraying this all over. It’s so quick and easy to use but gives such a beachy, summery look!

Benefit Gimme Brow

This product is amazing. It has changed my whole eyebrow routine. It is a fiber gel that makes brows look thicker but also gives them shape. I really don’t know how it does it – I was amazed when I first used it. You can use this on top of your normal eyebrow products (pencil, gel, etc) or by itself. When I’m rushing in the morning, I just brush this all over my brows and run out the door. It has a built in gel so there’s no need to use multiple products with it. It’s amazing – I can’t say it enough. I have the shade Light/Medium and my only complaint is that this is a little dark for my liking. It gets the job down and looks fine – but I wish there was a shade just a bit lighter to look more natural with my blonde hair and brows. Regardless, this is definitely worth trying out!

Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation

I never use drugstore foundation. I always use Clinique foundation and powders on my face. I have sensitive skin and drugstore foundations tend to make me breakout. That being said, I have no idea what made me buy this foundation. It’s different from all foundation I’ve used before – I’ve never used a gel stick foundation before and I really wasn’t expecting too much from it. This is a very recent purchase for me but so far – I love it. First of all, I hate buying drugstore foundations because I never find the right shade. I bought this in 115 Ivory and it is the PERFECT shade – seriously, that never happens. I really love this foundation so far! It stays on all day and creates a matte look to control my oily skin. It reminds of my favorite Clinique Stay Matte Foundation. This foundation is sheer-medium coverage but is extremely buildable. I hate applying makeup with my fingers so I usually use my stippling brush or beauty blender. I have definitely been pleasantly surprised with this product. It works great to control shine and gives a natural finish – aka your skin still looks like skin.

Nyx Butter Gloss

I think I’m a little late on the bandwagon with this but I love this lipgloss! I usually hate lipgloss but this is so smooth and moisturizing on lips and does not have that sticky annoying lipgloss feel. I got mine in the shade Apple Strudel which is a bright cotton-candy color pink. I can’t wait to use this all spring ! I definitely am going to be purchasing more shades of this.

Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

This is one of the products that I’ve been wanting to try forever and just never did. I found it at Nordstrom and finally purchased it. It’s just a jumbo white eye pencil to use as an eyeshadow base, eyeshadow, highlight, etc. It is SO pigmented – it’s amazing. It’s so bright and really shows up – which I find that a lot of white eye pencils do not. I really like this product and think I will get a lot of use out of it!

  1. This reminds me of a recent Revlon haul that includes a foundation, a primer and a liquid concealer. All or one of which has caused me terrible breakouts. Now I can’t wear anything but toner infused with tea tree oil so my face clears out. And I don’t know what to do with the products I have only used once. 😦

    • Oh no that’s the worst! I find that most drugstore products break me out too. Have you tried Clinique? It’s not as cheap as drugstore but it’s great on skin. My dermatologist recommended their makeup to me in high school and I’ve been using it since with no problems

      • I’ve used Clinique from samples my aunt would send me every now and then, but they’re mostly mascaras and eye cream. It’s not easy to return purchases here in the Philippines, so I don’t think that option is really helpful. *sigh*
