March Favorites / Spring GIVEAWAY + the chance to be in a movie!

THIS IS WHAT YOU’LL BE GETTING!

Too Faced Sun Bunny Bronzer : At first I was skeptical about such a shimmery bronzer, but this product is incredible! It swatches a bit crazy, but once applied to the skin it creates the most beautiful, natural bronzed glow I have ever experienced. After one use, this bronzer has become a Holy Grail.

Butter London Wink Colour Mascara in Indigo PunkI have been loving this mascara this month because it is so unexpected. It is an orchid purple color that flashes indigo blue, but it is not super opaque, which makes it great for an understated pop of color. It applies well over a black mascara, or on its own for a more fairy-like/ethereal effect.

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara in Very BlackThis is another Holy Grail product I have recently come across. I have used this mascara almost everyday since I first purchased it, and have gone through about three tubes. It has a plastic bristled wand similar to the Covergirl LashBlast Volume, but is much smaller and slightly curved. Not only does it not clump, as it says in its name; but it separates, lengthens, and volumizes in the same way as the Benefit They’re Real Mascara.

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Nude PeachThis is by far my all time favorite lip gloss for spring. It is a sheer to medium opacity peachy pink with slight coral shimmer. It has a doe foot applicator, and is super smooth and moisturizing to the lips. My favorite part of this product though is the scent, which is a sweet fruit punch!

Violent Lips The Red GlitterattiI first came across this product at IMATS, and have been in love ever since. These are super fun to wear to parties, and are for sure a conversation starter (in a good way). These temporary lip appliqués fit all lips, last about 8 hours, and are generally easy to apply. The one the winner will be getting is The Red Glitteratti, which is a true red with red shimmer. I think these are perfect for prom, parties, or anytime you want to have a bit of fun with your makeup.

Dove Refresh+Care Volume Dry Shampoo : This product has been a life saver for me this month! As you guys know, I have a really oily scalp and super dry ends. This has saved me from having to wash my hair everyday since, unlike every other dry shampoo I’ve tried, it actually cleans your hair and makes it look freshly washed. It initially leaves a white cast, but is easily brushed away which is a huge bonus! It also adds volume and has a fresh, sweet citrus fragrance.

March 2013 IPSY Bag

Hey Everyone! The March 2013 IPSY Glam Bag was a cute navy and white nautical theme with stripes and anchors. Here’s what came inside this months bag  : (PICTURES AND SWATCHES BELOW)

Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist 

Glam RX Mini Freestyle Palette

La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes

Yaby Eyeshadow Refills in Seashell, and Azalea Petal

 

The Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist is a hydrating toner that promotes a radiant complexion with rose hip, ylang ylang, grapeseed oil and organic juices. It smells light and fresh, and has a rosey aroma. When sprayed it feels refreshing and clean, but leaves a very slight oil feeling on the skin; probably the grapeseed oil.

The Glam RX Mini Freestyle Palette is so tiny and cute! It is just like a Z Palette in that it is a magnetic board style palette that can hold any brand of makeup product. It has a mirror and would fit in even the smallest clutch. However, it is only big enough for about two MAC eyeshadow pans; so its not the idea palette for someone who wants to bring along larger products.

The La Fresh Travel Lite Makeup Remover Wipes handy to have if you are traveling or in a pinch. They contain moisturizing vitamin e, and can be used to remove eye, lip, and face makeup. I do  not care at all for the scent or texture of these wipes.

The Yaby Eyeshadow Refills are great in terms of fitting in the Glam RX Palette ( you could fit about 10) ! I received the colors Seashell, and Azalea Petal. Seashell is a light shimmery color that can dupe for MAC’s Shroom. Azalea Petal is a pink toned brown, almost rose gold. Both colors are buildable sheer and gorgeous, with a lovely texture and finish once blended.
