MARCH FAVORITES


1. L'Oreal Paris Infallible Eyeshadow  $8.99
This product works amazingly as an eyeshadow and a highlighter for you eyes and face. It's the perfect dupe for Stila's kitten! With a fluffy brush, I brush this on my cheekbones and my inner tear duct for a nice glow. The sun definitely catches onto it!

2. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing $8-11
If you're in need of some serious cleansing, try this mask out! I bought a 1 pound tub of this for around $11 at Ricky's and all you need is a spoon of powder for each use. Then, with a similar amount of powder used, pour in Apple Cider Vinegar to turn the powder into the clay.  Within seconds of applying the mask, you'll feel your skin tightening. I have pretty oily skin, so I leave the mask on for approximately 20 minutes. I wouldn't recommend keeping it on for longer if you have dry skin or else it'll feel like the life was sucked away from your skin!

3. Milk Makeup Blur Stick $36
Even when I don't wear foundation (which is most of the time), I love using Milk Makeup's blur stick as my primer. My skin type is extremely oily around the t-zone but when I use this primer, my oil production minimizes. The primer leaves a smooth surface on my skin without caking up like other silicon primers (i.e. Bare Minerals Oil control primer. That leaves white patches on my face). One thing about this blur stick is that it has an unusual fragrant. Nothing too strong and artificial, but it took my by surprise at first.

4. Murad Blemish Spot Treatment $18
Over winter break, I broke out all over my forehead and nose. After washing and moisturizing my face with my First Aid Beauty products, I put a bit of the spot treatment directly over the blemish before I go to bed. Make sure you don't put it on an open blemish because it'll sting like crazy!! Sometimes I even put some Tea tree oil on top of the treatment for an extra boost. Your skin will thank you later.

5. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream $12-34
If you have dry patches of skin, this cream will save you and your skin! Make sure you exfoliate before applying the cream. Another benefit to this lotion is that there's no scent to it. It leaves your skin feeling fresh and plump without a lingering artificial scent that might irritate your skin.

6. Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation $5.99
I love this foundation!! For my oily skin, I definitely needed something that wouldn't flash back in pictures. My natural oil does that more me already; I don't need more shine. It's pretty light-weight, yet it has great coverage. Again with the scent, they definitely didn't add anything, but it does have the classic smell of a foundation. It almost reminds me of playdough. Don't worry, the smell will go away! For reference, my shade is in Bronze Beige.

7.  CoverGirl Super Sizer Mascara $6.99
This mascara has been my favorite since the moment it came out. I've tried other brands, high-end and drugstore, but nothing beats this product in particular. The regular version is pretty waterproof already, I can't imagine how strong the waterproof version is! Also, I've reached the point of being too lazy to curl my lashes anymore, but this mascara does a great job lifting my straight downward-facing lashes. :) I get so many compliments when I wear this; I highly recommend!

8. Revlon Lipstick in Black Cherry $8.49
For the longest time, I've been looking for an everyday deep red lipstick for me to wear, but I find that Black Cherry is the perfect deep plum-red color that creates an almost natural vampy look. Red is your classic color that draws a lot of attention, so when I bought Black Cherry on a whim (it was on sale, haha ^__^), I thought it might look too purple or dark for me. Turns out, I'm in love with this shade. Aside from the beautiful color, this lipstick is very nourishing! It's easy to apply, reapply, and wipe off at the end of the day. If you eat, don't worry; it leaves a nice cherry stain to your lips so it won't look patchy if you forgot to bring the lipstick with you to reapply. Fall isn't the only time of the year to wear dark colors! ;)

9. Glossier Milk Jelly Cleanser $18
This face wash works wonders. I stopped wearing mascara for a while because it was so hard to remove, but this cleanser makes my life so much easier! The makeup will melt off your face with this wash. I use it at night to remove my makeup, then wash my face again just to be extra clean! What's great is that there's no oily residue or chemical scent to this product. If you never want to buy cotton pads ever again (unless you need to remove nail polish), I highly recommend this face wash!
