I am really sporadic blogging about my monthly favorites. That’s because I don't think my favs change too much from month to month. When I find something that works I tend to stick with it. I be loyal like that.

But this past month, I noticed I was reaching for some different items. Some of which are really good old friends. 
Marcelle CC and DD Cream

First fav up is my base; I have been switching back and forth between the Marcelle CC and DD creams. I like them both but slightly prefer the DD cream a bit more. Both offer light coverage but I think the CC cream has a bit more coverage and that the DD cream has more luminosity. If I want more than a light coverage, I may pump in a teeny little bit of foundation, making a little foundation concoction.  I highly recommend trying out the Marcelle CC/DD creams for a beautiful au natural finish. Plus they have some great skin benefits and a decent SPF count. I have reviewed the DD cream here if you are interested.

I have rediscovered my fondness for the L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder in N2 for setting my face. I never thought anything would pry the MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Medium from my hands but this one did. It is so smooth and the super fine powder never cakes on my face.

I also really enjoyed using the Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Light. So much so that the labeling has rubbed off. This creamy concealer blends beautifully and covers any under eye darkness I may have that day. It’s an awesome drugstore concealer.

Now that it is spring I have been reaching for pink blushes. None more so than my Clinique Cheek Pop blush in Plum Pop. It provides a beautiful soft pink glow. The only thing I don't like about this pretty blush is the more you get down in to the embossed daisy design, the very edges of the petals get dirty. I tried wiping it with a makeup cleaning wipe but I think I made it worse. So now I give it a spritz with my BeautySoClean spray every once in awhile to appease my mind. If you want to see it in its original glory you can read my review here. Has anyone else had this issue with the Cheek Pops?

Okay this one I am a wee bit embarrassed to show you. It's my Benefit Hoola Bronzer. I was going to insert a stock photo of it here but I thought I would just be honest and show you what makeup that I really love ends up looking like after a year or so LOL It gets loved to Death! Please, don’t judge me…
I got this small version awhile ago and I only hit pan on it a few months ago. I use it to contour a bit, bronze my face and I love it as an eyeshadow. It makes for a great warm brown crease colour. I need to get another one soon. I am quite impressed with how long it this little guy has lasted me with the amount of use it has gone through.  Poor Hoola.

I am including the Benefit Roller Lash mascara even though it is empty. I enjoyed this so much that I used it everyday until that sad day there was no more. Teresa wants more! I did review it here last month.

Annabelle Lip Liner in Demure Epic Blend Lip Balm

Every morning, I fill in my lips with the Annabelle lip liner in Demure. I drink a lot of coffee each morning and the Annabelle lip liners seem to last through my coffee indulgences a lot better than glosses or lipsticks. Demure is a beautiful nude-y pink, a my-lips- but-better shade. The Epic Blend Lip Balm is really moisturizing and has become my favorite balm to use of late. Plus you gotta love that it is a Canadian company and an all natural product. I only wish I could find it locally. You can order Epic Blend online.

I thought I would mention these Belvada nail polish remover pads. I finally started using them after receiving them last year in a TopBox. Initially, I didn’t like the lemon scent but I have to say I really like these nail polish remover pads. I can get all 10 digits done with one pad, two if it’s a really stubborn polish. But my favorite thing is how moisturizing these are and that I can sit in front of TV and absent-mindedly take off my polish. That's the lazy girl in me loving this product :)

That’s the nitty gritty of my current favs…some loved (really hard) more than others…
What is your favorite product right now?
