This month was a no-brainer when it came to beauty favorites. I didn’t have a lot of products, but there were definitely 4 products that I kept grabbing for almost the entire month, so of course I have to share it with you all!
So if you want to see the products that I loved during the month of March — and the reasons why I loved them — then just keep reading!
My MARCH Beauty Favorites
Physician’s Formula Matte Collection Quad Shadow in Classic Canyon || $6.99, Ulta || This is an oldie-but-a-goodie! I post my review of this palette a while ago, but over the holidays, with all the new palettes that were coming out…this amazing palette just got pushed to the back of my drawer. Well, at the beginning of this month I started using it again — and fell in love all over again with this palette. It is so amazing! I also shared a tutorial using this palette. Did you see it? If not, click HERE to check it out and let me know what you think!
LORAC PRO Matte Lip Color in Mauve || $16, Ulta || This is another rediscover for me. I was using this a LOT last year, even shared a review on here featuring this color…but kind of forgot about it with the new year. I was wearing this a LOT this past month (until I got my cold sore, that is…ugh) I forgot how well this stayed, too! It’s not a liquid lipstick or anything, but when I apply it in thin layers, allowing it to set between layers, I find that I can kiss the back of my hand without it transferring. Which is awesome (my husband loves it!) and exactly what I am looking for in a lipstick that is long wearing without being drying. Now I want to buy more colors, lol! 😀
Beauty Blender Original Makeup Sponge || $19.95, Sephora || Okay, I am probably the last gal to jump on the bandwagon and try out the Beauty Blender. I was the gal that bought the Real Techniques sponge and thought it worked just fine. Anyway, to make a long story short, I finally purchased the Beauty Blender at the beginning of this month, tried it once….and then have been reaching for it almost daily! It’s amazing! I love using this for my more thicker foundations, as it really helps blend it in and give my face a natural appearance, not to cakey or thick. It’s amazing, really, and if you’ve been on the fence….jump over, spend the $20, and take care of it so it will last for a while. It’s worth the investment!
Abreva Cold Sore Pump || $16.79, Target || So about two weeks ago I started getting a nasty cold sore on my bottom lip. Cold sores is, sadly, something I get every few months or so, and it’s such a pain. Not only can you not wear lipsticks (boo) but there is also pretty much no way to conceal the face that you have a massive crater-size sore growing on your lip. It is not attractive! And I’ve never found something that actually helps and shortens how long the cord sore lasts. So anyways, I had picked this product up recently and as soon as I started feeling the cold sore come on, I began applying this product on the spot. While it didn’t make the cold sore disappear in a day, it DID dry it up really quickly! I was shocked! I started feeling the beginnings of a cold sore on a Monday, and by Saturday the bubble (and pain that comes with it) was gone, it was down to just a scab that had to heal up. For those gals who do struggle with cold sores….isn’t that impressive?? So, yeah, I highly recommend this and will be keeping this on hand for the next time a cold sore starts to come on. 😀
And those are my beauty favorites! They’re the products that were kicking my other products to the curb this month. 😉 Do you own any of these?? I’d love to hear what you think of them. I feel like each one of these products were amazing, but I know it can be a different experience for each person. So let me know!
Until next time, beauties! <3
i have always heard about that palette and need to pick it up!

Okay I’ve heard a few other people talk about the matte quads from Physicians Formula, so now I think I for sure need to check those out. And I’ve never tried any Lorac lip products before, so I will for sure check those out the next time I’m at Ulta! I use the Real Techniques sponge, and I love it, but I’ve heard great things about the Beauty Blender too. Thanks for sharing these awesome products!

Really great favorites! You can definitely see your Physicians Formula Palette is well loved! And YES to the Beauty Blender… I love mine sooooo much!! It really makes such a huge difference in how your makeup looks. And that lip crayon looks like a beautiful color! 🙂
The Lorac lip product sounds amazing! I’m always looking for “kiss-proof” products not only for my boyfriend’s sake, but because I tend to rest my chin in my hand and sometimes cover my mouth – I’ve ended up smearing my lipstick more than I care to admit!

I have been wanting that palette FOREVER!
Cosmetics Aficionado says
I love my Beauty Blender! I haven’t tried those Lora lip pencils yet. That shade is pretty.
Jen @ Simple Nails and Beauty says
Given how much you obviously love that eyeshadow quad, I am going to have to check it out!!
Maria Gridley says
I still have not jumped aboard the beauty blender bandwagon! I LOVE my real techniques sponge, and I am sure the BB is amazing… But $6 vs $20… Yeah I cant get past that! lol
