March Favorites and a Giveaway {{Closed}}

by - April 06, 2014

Hello Makeupnuts! March has finally left us and took its ungodly cold weather! That was too cold. The winter of 2014 is now officially the coldest on record since 1898 here in Winnipeg! What???

How did I cope? I bundled up and did a lot of retail therapy in February and March. Maybe too much haha!

But from that came a few favorite things....

March Favorites
March Favorites

Clinique Cheek Pop in Plum – I am absolutely loving this blush. It gives a soft but buildable pink glow. It blends so smoothly. I need more. See swatches here.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent – I bought this on a whim during a Shoppers Drug Mart redemption event. I finally started using it and whoa! I have been using it to set my under eye concealer and it is magnificent! Seriously my concealer stays put all day with it and looks flawless. Love you Stay Matte!
 
MAc auto-de-blu, Annabelle TwistUp Divine, Marcelle Duo Eyebrow Pro

MAC Auto-de-Blu Technakohl liner – I have been using this mechanical liner to add a pop of colour on my lash line and sometimes I will just use under my eyes. It is a beautiful creamy navy blue. I find it pretty longwearing once it dries and sets. I will admit I have been reaching for this because I need to sharpen a lot of my other pencils and just couldn’t be bothered in the morning rush. Hehe

Annabelle TwistUp in Divine – I have been carrying this lip crayon everywhere. It is so easy just whip out and apply. Divine is a soft muted rose pink. It is so creamy and smooth. It totally makes a yucky lip day into a great lip day. Got some scragglies? TwistUps will cover them up! The lasting power is about 2-3 hours on me which I find is average for most lip crayons. See swatches here.

Marcelle Duo Eyebrow Pro in Dark – I had to get this during the Marcelle/Annabelle 40% off sale. I was so curious about the brow gel portion. I have been using this to give my brows a light tint and to keep them tidy. This is another great product for us ladies that are in a rush in the morning. Got no time to put on brows? Slap on some brow gel on and go! I am still trying to get the hang of the pencil side of it. It is a thicker slanted pencil and I am so used to the skinny brow liner that I feel like I am using a giant crayon. I will get the hang of it because the color of the pencil side is a perfect shade for me.
 
Essie - She's Picture Perfect
Essie - She's Picture Perfect
Essie polish in She’s Picture Perfect – I have been wearing this for almost three weeks. Three manicures and each time I used She’s Picture Perfect. I just love this lilac. It has a  pink iridescent shimmer running through it. 


Lorac Pro Palette – I. Heart. This. Palette. Seriously I do. I haven’t used much else but this palette since I got it. I love mattes so I knew I would like those shades but the shimmers are so easy to use. None are out there with crazy shimmer or glitter. If you want to see more about the Lorac Pro Palette and all it splendor, please check out my review here - tons of pics and swatches.

So those were my favorites for March. I am pretty sure the Lorac Pro Palette may pop up in April too!

Soooo if you had read my first impressions on the Lorac Pro Palette, you will know I had to go through some hoops to get it. It is not available readily in Canada and it seems to be sold out in a lot of stores. I guess most people will probably have to order this palette online at Lorac cosmetics. So I figured if it is that hard to get, I would buy two Lorac Pro Palettes. One for me and one for one lucky Makeupnut!

Excited yet?
