March 2018 Monthly Recap

I recently started to focus on new makeup again and ended up trying a lot of stuff during March! Some of my birthday month purchases trickled into March as well and so it was a pretty fun testing month for me.

Nailed it! ft Sage / Muted Green Nail Polish Shades

I have a thing for teal / mint shades in general but it's not often I find more muted sage shades. They're usually more blue based or maybe just a mint green with a fancy new name, but I've found two recent releases that I couldn't be more happy about. One is a more high end and the other is more affordable, but they're close enough that I would've been happy with just getting one. More is sometimes more though and I'm glad that I have both ๐Ÿ˜„

Eyes on Nars Cosmetics ft. the Wanted and Danger Control Palettes

Ever since I bought the NARS Glass Tears Palette (review here), I've been really into getting more of their eyeshadow palettes. Unluckily for my wallet, NARS released two more palettes that seemed to be right up my alley.

Review & Swatches: Glossier Lidstars in Moon, Slip, Cub, and Herb

I guess I'm on a liquid eyeshadow roll since here's another post that will be featuring the recently released Glossier Lidstars! These shadows are supposed to be a "one-step eye enhancement" with a "wash of soft, glistening color that lasts all day." When the promo shots were released, I saw a lot of people worrying about these being outside of Glossier's norm of minimal/barely there makeup but I would say that they're still on brand and fit the "long-wearing eye glow" Glossier describes them to be. In this post, I'll be reviewing and swatching Moon, Slip, Cub, and Herb.

Each tube contains 0.15 oz / 4.5 mL of product and retails for $18, but there's also a duo option for $30. The links are below! Disclaimer - I am a Glossier Rep and if you choose to purchase through my affiliate link, I do get a small percentage of the sale.

Review & Swatches: Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer in Bronzer, Sunkissed Bronzer, and Deep Bronzer

The Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzers are one of the most hyped up drugstore bronzers I've heard about in awhile. I haven't been as interested in drugstore face products from some time besides maybe foundations and highlighters but I feel like the last super hyped up bronzer I remember was the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder. When the Butter Bronzers first came out, there were only two shades - Light Bronzer and Bronzer. In late December, PF released two darker shades - Sunkissed Bronzer and Deep Bronzer. In this post, I'll be reviewing and compare Bronzer, Sunkissed Bronzer, and Deep Bronzer. Each shade contains 0.38 ounces of product and retails for about $12-$15 depending on where you're buying it from.

Shimmering & Glowing with the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows

I apparently forget about all of my product reviews and rediscovered these photos last week ๐Ÿ˜… By the way, Stila splits up eye and shadow but I usually spell it as eyeshadow so you'll see me switch between the two in this post. 

The Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows were one of my favorite products from 2017 and I was so excited for the Shimmer & Glow version. The Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows are a long-wearing high shimmer liquid eye shadow and while they might swatch fully pigmented, there's supposed to be a translucent base that's packed with a "pearl" sheen so that they still have a sheen even when sheered out. Each shade contains 0.153 ounces of product and retails for $24 through the retailers below -
