Monthly Must Haves: March 2016

Monthly Must Haves: March 2016

I have been testing out a lot of new products throughout the month of March and rediscovering some old products in my stash. Here are some of my favourite discoveries this month:

Nyx Highlight and Contour Pro Palette – This product has been something I have reached for everyday, whether I am going for a subtle everyday look or a full on glam look I find I reach for this. It is also super affordable with amazing quality. For more details check out my full review here.

Vichy NormadermΒ Tri-Activ Mask – This product has been SAVING my skin this month. My skin has been very active this month with break outs appearing like crazy. I rediscovered this product in my stash to help target these pesky breakouts. I apply it at night at night, before I go to bed, and when I wake up in the morning the breakouts have really calmed down. So happy I rediscovered this mask!

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Caramello – I think the whole entire world knows that my favourite liquid lipsticks come from Stila. This month I think the only thing I have worn is this shade in Caramello and I have gotten so many compliments. It is the perfect nude that can pull any look together. If I want to change it up I just apply a gloss over top and it gives it a completely new look. Everyone needs to try Stila’s Liquid Lipsticks.

Real Techniques Stippling Brush – I purchased a new foundation brush at the beginning of March and I am in love. I feel like I am a little late jumping on the whole stippling brush band wagon… like years late. I love this brush because it gives me a lot of coverage without looking too heavy or cakey. It blends my foundation like a dream, while giving me the coverage I desire.

Smashbox Photo Matte Anti-Shine Primer – I have never really been a fan of Smashbox primers, until now. I tried their famous original primer a while back and was very unimpressed, it left my skin an oily mess. This month I ran out of my tried and true everyday primer and had the Smashbox Photo Matte Anti-Shine Primer in my stash and decided to give it a try. I am happy I did because I actually have been really enjoying it. It creates a perfect matte base and helps my makeup stay all day. The one downfall is that I don’t find it is very good at covering pores, but I was still very happy with the performance.

That’s it for my favourites! Did you have any products you loved this month?

Happy April,
