This month, I am wearing very minimal makeup. Half the month, I find myself without eye makeup. Just basic minimal foundation, curled lashes with mascara and a bit of lip color.
Loving my new Pixi Flawless Vitamin Veil (No.2 Medium). I got it when I went home to Toronto for visit middle of the month. Picked this up at Target with deep discount and I am so surprised how much I love this. This is the most interesting foundation I have ever tried. It is a gel-cream texture. When you swatch it in the pan, it is the most creamiest and smooth texture. I like to apply it with dabbing my fingers into the pan. Got enough product on my face and then buff it in with a kabuki brush. It gives medium coverage and it gives my skin a smooth, even-toned finish. Unlike any other foundation, it makes my skin look like "skin".
Favorite lip combo this month is Essence Lip Liner in Soft Berry with NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm. The two together gives the prettiest mauve color which last a long time.
Another lip favorite is Marc Jacobs Lip Cream Rouge in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Got this deluxe sample from Sephora. I am still into mauve lip color and this is a rich rose shade which is moisturizing and the formula is excellent.
Clinique is coming out with new spring cheek pop shades and I have my eye set on a couple, which reminds me that I have one from last year which I neglected. Clinique Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop has been "re-discovered" from my stash of blushes. It is a pretty pink shade with a hint of brown. I wasn't into it last year as I find it hard to get the product onto the brush. But found out the best way for me is to dip my fingers into the pan and dab onto my cheeks and then use a stippling brush to even it out to give the prettiest natural blush.
Last product this month is another "re-discovery" from my makeup drawer. It is the Anastasia Brow Duality. It is a dual pencil to highlight brow bone. One side is a matte finish and one side is a shimmery finish. The side I use the most is the matte. Perfect to highlight brow bone with its "chubby" pencil. Just one slide to each brow bone, I'm set to go.
Quite happy with March favorites even though it is not much. But I have re-discovered a few goodies from my stash which I totally forgot about. It is like getting "new" makeup without taking out your wallet.
Do you like going through your stash to re-discover products you totally forgot and suddenly can't live without?
