Hello, everyone! Spring is finally here, and I’ve found myself using a lot of products I’ve had stashed in my vanity for months now. A sort of spring cleaning, if you will, to decide what’s worth keeping. And I found a few new favorites. But first, let’s talk about my March Glam Bag.
My March Ipsy Glam Bag
I was about to cancel my subscription after March, but then I ended up being really pleased with almost everything that came in my bag this month (Well, except for the NYX Liquid Suede in bright pink. I don’t know how many times I have to tell Ipsy that I do NOT wear pink before they get the message.) Highlights include this pretty coral eyeshadow, the loose-powder brush (so soft!), and a blow-dry hair straightening serum.
e.l.f jumbo lip gloss stick
I picked this up in December at the Dollar Tree — a total score — but I’ve been wearing it a lot more lately. It has peppermint in it, so it makes your lips feel all tingly! The color isn’t super pigmented, which is nice for days where I want to be a little more casual but still sport my signature color. And despite the name, it’s more of a lipstick crayon than a gloss.
Mary Kay crème lipstick in Really Red
This is another lip color I’ve had for some time. Ideally I’d wear this or Revlon’s Fire and Ice at my wedding if I had something to set it, but, alas, I don’t. I like this because it complements my skin tone well. (I think I’m discovering I’m more of an orange-red than a blue-red? Colors are hard, guys.)
Milani Baked Blush
I’ve had this stashed in my vanity since the summer, but it’s been getting a lot of use lately. It’s in the shade Berry Amore, and is has some beautiful shimmery bronze packed in too. I’ve only seen Milani products at Fredmeyer and Walmart (and occasionally Target), but from my limited experience, it’s a pretty solid brand.
It’s 10 Miracle Leave-In Product
I always dread combing out my hair after I wash it. It’s time consuming. It’s tangly. It sucks.I’ve tried different leave-in conditioners and detangling sprays, but I haven’t had much success with them. It still takes me 15 minutes to comb my hair out, and it hurts.
This is by no means a cheap product (the travel size alone is $11), but like the name suggests, it is a miracle in a bottle. I spray this is my hair—my incredibly thick and long hair that reaches more than halfway down my back—and let it sit for five minutes or so, and combing my hair out is a cinch. And it leaves it so soft and healthy!
Wet ‘n’ Wild Picture Perfect Setting Spray
I picked this up for my weekend foundation (aka the drugstore stuff I’m trying to use up) because I hate when it looks splotchy toward the end of the day. It works really well, and I’m considering trying it over lipstick in relation to Things I’m Going to Put on My Face (For Science).
Dr. Teal’s Avocado Super Moisturizer Foaming Bath
If you don’t already know, I am a huge advocate for two particular bath and body brands: Lush and Dr. Teal’s. And I am also a huge advocate for taking more bubble baths—they’re a good way to remind yourself that you matter.
This is a brand-new product from Dr. Teal’s, and I’m completely smitten with it. I loved their foaming baths already, and with the added avocado oil? Simply heaven. It leaves your skin so moisturized and soft, which I love because I have pretty dry skin.
And that’s all for now, folks. What products did you swoon for this month? I’d love to hear!
Until next time, stay fabulous!
