Giveaway Winner Announcement!

Congrats to Teresa for winning my first blog giveaway!!!

Her favorite beauty tip: “My favorite beauty tip would be to moisturize! Whether it’s your face or your body. It feels so rewarding and these days it’s a need rather than a luxury.” True dat!

I wish I could say the whole thing was a scientific process but I just wrote down all the entries on little scrap papers, threw them in a cup, and drew a name.

March Favorites

It’s time for my March Favorites! These are items I couldn’t get enough of in the month of March. Apparently, I was really into corals, go me! As always, click on the picture to make it larger.

Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush in Coral Riviera 002- it’s described as “tawny corals” on Sephora’s site. This is a HG blush for me. It gives a glow to my cheeks when I use the colors together, and in a pinch I can use the middle bronze color to contour and add warmth to my face. Love this mofo.

MAC’s Shell Pearl Beauty Powder– I put down my MAC MSF Candlelight in March in favor of Liberty of London’s Shell Pearl. I love the soft pearly cheek highlight it gave me, especially since it had staying power. Since it’s a beauty powder, you can also wear it as a blush, but I have yet to do that.

MAC’s Birds & Berries Eyeshadow– I’m a sucker for teal eyeshadow. This one came out as a limited edition with the Liberty of London collection for MAC. This color is so versatile. I used it all over my lid, in the crease, with purples, greys, taupes, browns, pinks, etc.

MAC’s Cha Cha Lipglass– Hello pretty lippie. Cha Cha is a medium pink with gold pearl from the Spring Color Forecast collection (looks coralish).

Milani Liquif’Eye Eye Liner Pencil in brown- I reviewed this liner and am still in love with it. I’ve ventured back to Target a few times looking for black but was always sold out.

Review: Milani Liquif’Eye Eye Liner Pencil

I got the opportunity to try out Milani’s Liquif’Eye eyeliner for the past couple of days. You know you must like something when you drive back to Target the next day to pick it up in every dang color they make.  Apparently, it was a hot item since the only color available the next day was gold.

Quick take– cheap and wonderful, A+ product!

Milani promises: Extremely smooth eye pencil with the application and feel of a liquid liner that delivers true color payoff, in a metallic finish with a long-lasting wear.

Directions on the package indicate that the liner sets in 15 seconds. I applied two lines on my hand, one I smudged, and after 15 seconds I tried to smudge both lines but neither were having any of that.

The liner went on extremely creamy, allowing me to smudge it as I liked. After 15 seconds, that stuff was unbudgeable. I wore it all day long and by nighttime it still looked as if I’d just applied it, except for in the inner part of the eyelid where I’d been rubbing my eyes (allergies). I would as far to say it outperforms Urban Decays 24/7 liners (my favorite). It also performed extremely well in the waterline but I don’t have a picture of that.

Here’s what my liner looked like 8 hours after applying it in the morning. (Blah neutral eye day, I only lined the  under eye halfway.)

Milani Liquif’Eye Eye Liner Pencil comes in black, brown, gold, aqua, and silver. The package says these liners are metallic but  just found the brown pencil to have a slight sheen to it, nothing metallic. I found this item at Target for $4.99 but they sell it at CVS as well.
