I am aware that it is slightly late for March Favorites but I assumed that it was better late than never as I skipped February Favorites on my YouTube channel. It is pouring outside again and I am so mad at the weather because I was hoping to do some more OOTDs outside - where is the sun!
Anyway, here are my March favorites, most of them are beauty-related and I don't really have a lot of March favorites here with me in HK as I don't usually bring everything back and forth. Here are just a few things that I have brought back with me, showing how much I like these products!
First off, a beauty-unrelated product is the Hermès enamel bangle that I got for my birthday from my boyfriend. Although it hasn't really been sunny here in HK, this has just paired nicely with a lot of my outfits and just brightened the entire outfit. It's simple design just makes the outfit look effortless but styled.
This serum based foundation is on the pricey side, but it is so worth it! I told myself I did not need a new foundation as I had my Dior Nude foundation and my holy grail Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation, but I tested this foundation at three different counters (yes! Three!) and decided I had to have my hands on it. I'm very frugal when it comes to using this foundation since it came with a high price tag, but this feels like heaven on my skin. The serum has anti-aging substances and helps provide elasticity to the skin as well as radiance, and not to mention the velvety silk texture which walking woman can resist.
O.P.I Nail Lacquer - Mermaids Tears (NL P18)
Next are the two most worn nail polishes of the month. Both are quite spring/summer colours but with a slightly darker-than-pastel tone which makes it perfect for the transition into spring. Much as I dislike the brushes of both brands of nail polishes, the colors and formula make up for it.
I am in LOVE with this stuff! My hair has always been tangly and I've used my friend's quick tip by leaving conditioner in (and it does the trick) but I've been trying to find an even quicker way to brush out my tangles and condition my hair and this does wonders! It smells really nice, and I found that it is a dupe for the Kerastase Oleo-Relax Nutritive Serum. Pretty much does the same thing at such a lower price!
I've tried out the Stone Crop samples from Eminence and love their organic products - I've found that their stone crop line really helps relieve sensitivity although the smell does take a little getting used to. My best friend gave me a birthday box of beauty products in it and this is one of my favorite products in there. I use it as a toner so it calms my skin before I go through my skincare routine. I have seen a slight difference as it helps with my skin's sensitivity and dryness.
This has been my most most-used lipstick recently. The Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks are a little more pigmented, where the original Dior Addict lipsticks are a sheerer. However I've been loving this gorgeous color which is between a bold red and a bright pink. Because I have pale skin, a bold lipstick is just what I need to make me look awake.
This is the only blush I brought back with me to HK and I feel like I haven't been using this blush enough. The colors when swirled together with a brush gives a very natural peachy glow, perfect for the days when I want to wear minimal makeup. The packaging makes it great for travel and it smells amazing!
I have incorporated this serum into my skincare routine since beginning of February, and have seen a huge reduction in pigmentation because of this product. The serum is quite strong, so I only use it at night. Although slightly on the pricey side, if you, like me, suffer from acne or allergy scarring, I would recommend asking for a sample of this at the Selfridges counter (or your local Dior counter - make sure they carry the DiorSnow line!) and try it out - see for yourself! :)
So that wraps up my March Favorites! What is your favorite new discovery in March?
