March Favorites

During March I found myself reaching for a lot of oldies but goodies. Here are my faves from the past month:

1. MAC Pro Longwear Foundation

This foundation is my new favorite...I've actually been wearing it non-stop this whole winter! It lasts ALL day, is easy to blend, matches my skin tone perfectly, and has a natural finish that looks like skin. Read my full review here.

2. MAC Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

I have been using this shade a lot in my crease when running late and I just need to add a little oomph to my eye look. This shade is just so easy to use and blends well with any neutral base color.

3. MAC Tweet Me Eyeshadow

This shadow was released earlier this year as part of the Mega Metal Collection. This was the only shade I picked up, and I just had to have it because it is a gorgeous peachy gold.

Swatch of Tweet Me Shadow

 Here I used Tweet Me all over my lid, with Tete-A-Tint in my crease and Mystery 
in my outer V. I lined my eye with Bobbi Brown gel liner in Chocolate. Pretty, no?

4. Make Up For Ever (MUFE) Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in Shade 29

This is my new go-to lip color. It's slightly darker than my natural lip color and flatters just about any type of makeup look. I also think would make a great bridal lip color for just about anyone! See swatches and check out my full MUFE haul here.

5. Victorias Secret Hand and Body Cream in Secret Embrace

I LOVE this fragrance and the formula of the cream. It is thick and moisturizing 
without being too heavy like a body butter. And the scent is soooooo heavenly! Unfortunately, this fragrance was limited edition and I nabbed a couple at the last semi-annual sale, but can't seem to find it anymore. =( Don't you just hate when that happens?

I can't believe how fast this year has gone by....where did the first 3 months go? I'm looking forward to spring weather and hopefully the sun starts shining a little stronger here in Philly. Are there any products you kept reaching for last month, or throughout the winter? Have you tried any of my March faves?


  1. i have tried satin taupe, and it remains a favorite go-to :) as for the last three months passing's insane! i still find it hard to believe that we're ramping up for warm weather.

  2. Hi! I love your blog and have fallen in love with so many of the products you've reviewed. Also, wanted to let you know that if you realllly love the VS Shea Soft Embrace, it's still available on the VS website. Plus, there's a 5/$30 deal going on right now, just in case you're interested :D

    Also, I purchased a UD Naked Palette, and was wondering if you have the same one. If you do, I would LOVE to see a couple of different looks that can be achieved using just the colors in that palette.

    Take care and keep up the awesome work!!

  3. @fantastic I hear ya! Enjoy every minute cuz your little one will make his debut before you know it!

    @Pia Thanks so much! You are sooo sweet! I am glad that my reviews have been helpful! Being able to help even 1 person makes blogging worth every minute!!

    I do have the Naked palette and I will be happy to fulfill your request!! And thanks for the tip on that VS lotion...I will def check out the website!!!

  4. I know what you mean about MAC Pro long wear foundation. I absolutely love it. The thing is I am getting tanned due to sun and my NC 35 is feeling a tad light for me...otherwise I'd still wear it. I need to get it in NC 40, it is a superb foundation.
