A few of my favorite things: March

I cannot believe it’s already April!! When did that happen?

For monthly favorites, I’m going to try and keep it to things I have not mentioned in other posts… so onto what I have been loving this March!

Also, I did opt to include prices and product sizes in this one, just in case anyone is interested in picking up something to try themselves.

SKIN:

Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Lotion ($26 USD 4.6 fl oz

Why I’m loving it:

  • Lightweight
  • Oil-Free
  • Actually feels like a barrier sealing in the moisture
  • Non-greasy
  • My skin seems to have improved using it

LIPS:

Korres Lip Butter ($12 USD .21 oz)

Why I’m loving it:

  • I have only had this a few days, but I haven’t gone a day without putting one on
  • Super conditioning and hydrating
  • Non-drying, leaves lips soft and supple all day
  • Comes in a variety of shades, many with the perfect pop of sheer yet buildable color
  • Smells amaZING!

EYES:

Avon SuperSHOCK Mascara ($9 USD .35 oz)

Why I’m loving it:

  • Extra large brush
  • Separates lashes
  • Gives awesome volume and length
  • Formula allows you to build up lashes without flaking it all over your face

FACE:

Benefit Sun Beam – Golden Bronze Complexion Highlighter ($26 USD .45 fl oz)

Why I’m loving it:

  • While it is sold as a liquid, the consistency is between a gel and liquid – which I love
  • Gives a natural warm golden highlight, great for Spring and Summer [I use Benefit High Beam – a cool toned pink highlighter in Winter/Fall (Autum)]
  • Mix it in your foundation for a gorgeous glow, without sacrificing coverage
  • Mix it into your tinted moisturizer for an even more natural bare skin sun-kissed glow
  • Does not immediately set (dry), meaning you have time to work it onto the areas of your skin

MULTI-PURPOSE:

MAC Fix+ ($20 USD 3.4 fl oz

Why I’m loving it:

  • Hydrating
  • Moisturizing
  • Refreshing
  • Great for spritzing your make-up sponges or brushes, prior to applying liquid and cream products
  • Great pick-me-up spritz during the day (they sell it in travel size, with locking cap)
  • Great for bringing back a natural look to a matte finish

MAC Pro Performance Sponge ($14 USD)

Why I’m loving it:

FRAGRANCE:

Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne  ($110 USD 3.4 fl oz)

Why I’m loving it:

CLOTHING:

Old Navy Cropped Lightweight Cardigan ($15 USD)

Why I’m loving it:

  • A wardrobe necessity for Spring/Summer
  • I picked up three cropped cardigans in black, gray and green on sale!
  • Great for breezy days and for covering up a bit at work
  • Goes with almost everything
  • Cropped length hits at about an “empire waist” for me – which I love
MOVIE:
The Hunger Games (so predictable, I know)

Why I’m loving it:

  • Do you really have to ask?
  • PEETA MELLARK!!
  • Katniss Everdeen
