March Favorites

March is officially over, technically 5 days over, but whose counting? I am because I love April! It is seriously my favorite month ever. For me, April signifies the beginning of Spring, and with that, the beginning of warmer weather, longer days, colorful flowers, and just a happiness that it seems only April can bring. But before I fully embrace this new month, I have to say goodbye to March, and what's the best way to do this? By showing my March Favorites of course!

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette: I have been loving this collection of eye shadows this month. All of the colors are so wearable and I've been loving the matte finish most of the eye shadows have. If you haven't purchased the palette, I highly recommend it.

CoverGirl Eyeshadow Trio in Shimmering Sands: I mostly only use one shadow from this trio, I'm not sure of the name, but it is the lightest color on the right. My go to eye this whole month has been this color paired with several of the colors from the Naked Basics Palette. It's a great wearable color, and it stays on for a looong time.

Nivea Lip Butter: Love, love, love, this lip balm. It is super moisturizing, stays on for a long time, and has a pretty glossy look on the lips. Did I mention that they also smell amazing! I currently have them in Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss and the Raspberry Rose Kiss and I want to pick up the other two flavors.

Maybelline Color Whisper: I also can not say enough about these lip products. They are so build able, have gorgeous color and feel very light and moisturizing on the lips. I have about six of the colors from the line, and can't really justify buying anymore since I already have way too many lip products, but I highly recommend these if you are looking for great color, but also a moisturizing lip stick.

Benefit's The Porefessional: I've had this product for a while and never really used it, and now I can't really figure out why. It helps so much with minimizing pores and really helps my foundation go on and look a lot smoother on my face.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste: I actually received the whole Optic Line in my VoxBox complimentary from Influenster, which included the toothbrush, toothpaste and mouth wash. I have been loving this line, and have noticed that my teeth have become visibly whiter. What I love most about the line is that it gets my teeth white without leaving them sensitive like other whitening products I have tried have. Look out for a full review coming soon on these products!

Victoria's Secret Body Spray in Pure Daydream: I think this is such a great scent for Spring. It's described as having Pearl Orchid and Pink Currant. It also seems to last for quite a while, but being a body mist, the scent isn't too overpowering or strong. I also have the lotion to pair with it.

Buxom Mascara: I received this in my last PopSugar Must Have box and I absolutely love it. If you are looking for a mascara that really lengthens your lashes, this is it. It doesn't really do much to volumize lashes, but I prefer long, thin lashes anyway, so this is great.

Let me know what you think if you've tried any of these products before!
