Throwback: Favorites from March

It’s the time of the month to revisit some old favorites!   Here is a look back at my favorites from 2014 and 2015!

In March 2015, I liked:

Barry M Dazzle Dust in Rose Gold
(picture from my Instagram)

I used up this eyeshadow a while ago!  I haven’t bought a new Barry M Dazzle Dust in a few years, and I hope they are still as good as I remember!

 

L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga mascara (link goes to my review)

While I initially liked this mascara, it ended up smudging under my eyes.  I really like that L’Oreal mascaras click shut, so if I recommend them if you can find a formula that works for you.

FullSizeRender-2

 

Putting foundation into little squeeze tubes for traveling
(picture from my Instagram)

This is still the way I carry my foundation when I am traveling. I use bottles which are intended to put into bentos, which don’t leak and are 8 for $1!

 

In March 2014, I liked:

Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Foundation (link goes to my review)

This was one of my favorite foundations for a very long time. However, Revlon foundations have gotten really expensive, and I can find better foundations at a department store.

 

Dejavu Lasting Fine R Pencil eyeliner (link goes to my review)

I haven’t repurchased this in a while, but it is a great long lasting pencil eyeliner.

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette

Between the Barry M pigment I liked in 2015, and the Naked 3 palette I liked in 2014, apparently I like rose gold in March!  I still own this palette and I use it regularly.

Wow, this month I am only using  2 of the 6 products I used to like!

Empties from November 2016 – March 2017

Here are some of my empties from the recent months!

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural N9 (link goes to my review)

I received this as part of the Sephora birthday gift. I loved this color, and the texture also worked well with my lips.

I wish all lipsticks came in this size!

 

NO7 Dramatic Lift Mascara

I bought this mascara after reading many great reviews, but unfortunately it smudged on me!

 

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl eyeliner

I liked this eyeliner pencil, and the color was a little bit lighter than what I usually use.

 

NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (link goes to my review)

I really liked this eyeshadow primer! It made my eyeshadow last very well!

Kao Sofina Prima Vista primer (link goes to my review)

This primer is really popular in Japan! It made my foundation last throughout the day, even though it didn’t keep my skin fully matte.

 

L’Oréal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray

I’m so glad that drugstore brands are coming out with setting sprays!

 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Eau Fraiche

This is a limited edition perfume that Estee Lauder launches each summer.  I loved this so much that I bought a full size bottle!

Seabreeze Deo + Water Deodorant (link goes to my review)

This is my staple deodorant and I go through it quite frequently!

Lush Yuzu and Cocoa shower gel (link goes to my review)

This is the most recent Lush body wash that I bought.  It is an interesting scent, a mixture of citrus and chocolate.

 

Muji Jojoba oil

I purchased this oil last winter to combat my dry skin. It worked well, but I think I prefer a lighter oil

 

Hope you enjoyed to see my empties!
