Monthly Faves: March 2013

by agirlandhermutt on April 4, 2013

Hello friends! March just flew by and I am officially gearing up for Spring. Boston needs to get with it so I can enjoy some Spring-like weather. I need sun. I need flowers. I need not to wear my winter coat!

I had a few great finds throughout March and wanted to share the items I just couldn’t put down.


1. L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Bronzed Taupe and Iced Latte. Bronzed Taupe is the perfect eyeshadow to create a one color look. It goes on smooth, blends out to a beautiful color and lasts all day. The Iced Latte color is a great brow bone highlighter but is perfect to wear alone too. I used Iced Latte alone on my cruise and it looked great with my tan!

2. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar Plum. I love, love, love this color. I’ve had it in my big ol’ lipstick bag for several months but I rediscovered it this month. It is a beautiful shade of pink. Not too bright, not too heavy and a great color with any outfit.

3. Crocs Kadee in Leopard. Go ahead and make fun of me that I wear Crocs, but I won’t give them up. These shoes are so cute and so comfortable! I wore them a ton on my cruise and never had shoe issues. I consider leopard to be a neutral. It goes with everything! 😉

4. L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Conditioner. I bought both the shampoo and conditioner, but the conditioner is a stand out. If you have ever colored your hair at home then you are familiar with the conditioner that comes with the boxed dye set. It makes your hair so soft and smooth. This conditioner has that exact same effect! I adore this conditioner and what it does for my hair.

5. ReNew Life’s Ultimate Flora Probiotic. A few weeks ago ReNew offered to send me a few samples of their high potency probiotics. I decided to try the Women’s Care type. I have a *few* stomach issues on occasions and probiotics have been helpful in the past. Ultimate Flora probiotics are meant to replenish good bacteria in the digestive tract, restore regularity and promote immune health. Just a little TMI, but these suckers get the job done with that whole restoring regularity. 😉 These can be found at almost any drugstores, supermarkets and places like CVS and Walgreens.

6. Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in Tough As Taupe. These eyeshadows are creamy and super pigmented. I use this particular shade as my eyeshadow base. It will last all day long with no creasing and is perfect under the Iced Latte I mentioned above or even all by itself.

7. CoverGirl LastBlast Crump Crusher Mascara. When I first tried this mascara I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a winner. After a few uses I realized that this mascara works best when I do just one or two coats and leave it alone. There is volume and the perfect amount of length given for everyday wear. This is possibly one of the best waterproof mascaras for me too. I have a huge problem with mascara bleeding and haven’t had a problem with this one at all. Even when I was sweating my booty off in Haiti.

I’m trying to cut back on the product buying for the month of April and use up what I have. This may or may not be successful. 😉 I am a serious sucker for new products! If it says “NEW!” then I am all over it. Is anyone else like this?!

See ya next time with my cruise recap!

I may need to try that eyeshadow… I’ve been using a very light one for the winter and I think its too pale for spring and summer. I’m also a product monger, especially samples!

The bronzed taupe is the perfect spring summer color. You can make it as deep or as light as you would like too. Love it!

Do you do any of those sample boxes, like Birchbox?!


Michelle April 5, 2013 at 12:43 pm

Definitely trying it, then. Looking to streamline my beauty routine for the summer 🙂

I do get a Birchbox every month! Some months are better than others, but overall its worth it for me. I’ve found some great hair products in there and love getting different mascaras and nail polishes!

I was just thinking that I need a new bronze eye shadow! I might just go to CVS later to pick this one up 🙂 The lip color looks so fab on you!
