I have always been a fan of monthly favorites videos/blog posts, but I also feel like there are some products that are great for specific seasons, and since it has been warming up recently, I thought that I would share my current spring favorites with you guys!
Urban Decay Naked 3 palette: This palette has been giving me life this month! I am already a huge fan of mauve and dusty colors, and that is what the majority of the colors this palette has. I use Nooner and Limit in my crease on the daily, and alternate with the darker colors for the outer corner and lower last line.
Anastasia Dip Brow Palmade: This product has been a life-saver for me ever since I purchased it in January. It blends so easily and looks very natural. The color selection is decent, I had to return the first shade I got because it was too warm toned, and then they didn’t have my perfect match in stock- Medium Brown– so the saleswomen told me to go with Dark Brown and blend it out with the spoolie brush, and I do have to say that it does work very well.
MAC’s Perfect Topping highlighter: I got this highlighter, I think, a little over two years ago when their Fantasy of Flowers collection was released. I kind of forgot about it after I bought it, but was rediscovered when I packed it in my makeup collection that I was bringing with me to college- let me know in the comments if that is something that you are interested in seeing. Like all of MAC’s mineralized skinfinishes, it is very finely milled with various colored veining going through it. This “highlighter” gives me the perfect glow on my cheekbones, which is what I love for everyday, having a nice dewy look. I honestly cannot believe how little I used this product before now and am sad that I can’t stock up on it.
Makeup Forever HD Foundation: I swear, this product is a miracle worker. I have the hardest time finding foundations that work well with my skin, and finally ventured out to buy my first high-end foundation- I know, it’s weird that this is my first one. I don’t know what is in the formula but ever since I started using this product- and a Beauty Blender- my skin has cleared up SO much. I have skin on the drier side, and it blends perfectly into my skin, and I know people with oily skin who do not have any problems either. It is definitely a holy grail product for me!

NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick: This lipstick is amazing! I am completely obsessed with the formula, color and lasting power. As I said in my review of this product, I am very skeptical when it comes to liquid to matte lipsticks because some can be extremely drying, others sit weird on my lips, or the formula could just be off, but this one surprised me. I highly recommend the entire range of the liquid suede lipsticks if you can get your hands on them- just apply a lip balm before you use them!
YSL Opium Black Perfume: This perfume smells amazing! My roommate has this perfume, and I smelled it for the fist time a month ago, and became obsessed with it, but because it is so pricey it took me a while to want to take the jump and purchase it, but I am so happy that I did. I feel like the scent is perfect for year round. The only problem I have found is that it does wear off kinda quickly, so I am going to try that Vaseline hack to see if it helps maintain the scent a little longer.
