March Favorites

Hey Guys! Here’s what’s making the top of my list in the month of March:

Dr. Perricone Blue Plasma
This stuff is amazing! I’ve been using it religiously as part of my nighttime skin care routine. It’s a non-irritating exfoliating serum… that ONLY targets dead skin cells. That means zero irritation for all you sensitive beauties out there. It works overnight, and plays very well with other skin care products.

Ellis Faas Skin Veil
I’ve been using this every day since I got it from The Makeup Show. It’s like a lighter version of Illamasqua Skin Base (which I love). It adheres to the skin, and imitates the look at feel of skin, so that you don’t look ‘made up.’

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Ginger)
I’ve also been using this every day. One teeny dot under each eye does the trick. It sets beautifully and doesn’t crease or get ‘crepey’ throughout the day.

NARS Light Reflecting Powder
This is the lightest translucent powder I’ve used to date, that doesn’t give me that ‘white’ flashback that is typical of such finely milled white powders. The teeniest bit sets my foundation, and I’m good to go. I’ve found that I prefer the loose powder to the pressed version… there’s no shimmer and the finish is much more natural.

Armani Blushing Fabric
This formula works so well with the Ellis Faas foundation… it seems like they were made in the same place. It merges right in with the formula and imitates a natural ‘flush’ on my skin. I love it. Been using this religiously… I’m having a hard time choosing something else on a daily basis!

Tom Ford Lip Color Shine (Nubile)
This is such an easy color to wear, and the formula is excellent. It holds like a sheer lipstick, but feels like a soothing lip balm. Nubile has taken up permanent residence in my purse these days… I pull it out anytime I need to ‘freshen’ my face… and I don’t even need a mirror to do it. the color is very flattering and works well on my skin tone.

Sisley ‘So Intense’ Mascara
So far, so good with this one. It’s a great performing mascara, with the added benefit of ‘boosting’ lashes over time. I’ve been using it for about a week… but I want to wait a full 30 days before I absolutely swear by it. I love that it leaves my lashes soft (not crunchy) after wearing it all day. They do feel ‘softer’ — but the jury is still out on whether they’ve gotten any fuller.

CK One Nail Color (Romper Room)
I’ve been pressing a lot of palms lately (corporate madness), and I can’t be stressing about chipped nails and dark colors that are all wrong (and a bit off putting) for the average mucky  muck. So this nail polish is also bouncing around in my purse at the moment (just in case I need a touch up). The color is ‘so’ neutral that you  have to really look at my hands to see if I’m wearing any color. They just make my nails look polished and ‘presentable.’ It works.

That’s it! Those are my March Favorites… ciao for now!

  1. Have you tried Seche Vita Top Coat, it keeps your polish on for 4 to 5 days or sometimes longer, you can buy it at Sally's or online, it's awesome and I love it

  2. I haven't tried that! Thanks for the tip… I'm going to try it because I'm very hard on my hands. My manicures last about 48 hours… no joke.

    Hi! I'm dying to try that Nars powder, bur probably the pressed as I am no good with loose powders:( How does this compare to the new "ambient light" powders from Hourglass?

  4. The NARS pressed powder appears to have a bit more 'shimmer' to it than the loose version, which is perfect for basic setting purposes. The Hourglass powders all have shimmer (even the ones that are more matte… a review is coming).
