March Favorites

Here are the March favs!!! I am looking forward to going out and buying some loot here pretty soon to bring you more options and MORE savings. By the way, do YOU have a request? Send it to my email and I'll getter done! =)
 Becky is up first with her March favs!

First up is the limited edition Urban Decay 15 year Anniversary 24/7 liner set. Out the door, it's crazy expensive at $92 but you're only spending just over $6 per full-sized liner which is a crazy good value. I'm a huge fan of Urban Decay's liners and all of them are super pigmented and smooth. I love that there is a big variety in colors as well, I'm able to wear something different every day. They also work well as a base! Also included with the set is their Sharpener which is worlds better than your standard cheap sharpener (who knew!). My only complaint is that the packing plastic that it's wrapped in has a strong smell to it and you have to let it air out for a week and store the pencils elsewhere. Also, Perversion (which is THE blackest black liner I have ever seen) clouds up my contacts when worn on the waterline.  
Next up is Benefit's Boi-ing concealer. I'm always trying to hide my under eye circles and liked Erase Paste because it brightens but sometimes it would start look look cakey on me after a few hours. After hearing how much Jen loved it in a post I decided to try out Boi-ing and this is MUCH better for me! You need next to zero product and I just pat it on and it covers up my circles and the redness around my nose just beautifully. 
I am in love with Tarte's new Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Wear Powder Blush in Glisten.  I bought it in a set off of QVC (my first purchase from there- it was at a lower price of $52 for eight items if you include the bag!).  It's a great pinky-peach blush with some shimmer but it doesn't make my pores appear any larger as other shimmers usually do.  This Blush lasts 8 or so hours on me which is much longer than normal blush.  When I usually do a quick touch up in the late afternoon (thank you oily t-zone) I'm always pleasantly surprised that I don't need to apply more blush  .  Love it!!  (p.s. the brush with the set is ah-may-zing!)
Also, I've been using the Olay Pro-X... I'm a fan!
Next comes Sariah with her favs:
 I have an eye cream that I love that I bought from Sephora. It's called REN. I am a "weeper" so my eyes are constantly getting a dose of salt water tears which is incredibly drying. This helps out with that SO much!
I have also been using a face wash by Clean & Clear that I love. It helps out with blemishes and breakouts like it's nobodies business! (Psst, this is Jen, I wanted to post this so I'll have to ask her the name of it later!)

I want the amazonian clay blushes sooooo bad!!! Of course when I was at Sephora they were out od stock in all the colors I wanted most so I didn't end up with any :( boo.

I think I got that same set from QVC, and I would have to agree with you about the brush...love, love, love it!! In fact, I liked everything in the set, but the brush is to die for!!

Emily, isn't that set awesome? Definitely money well spent, I'm so happy I bought it.

I love your hair. Wanna show us how you did that twist in the front?! Have you thought about putting a search bar on your blog so finding products etc . . . would be a tad bit easier ( or maybe I'm not seeing it)?!

Love your site!! It's helping me be more brave in trying new things . . . like a smokey eye.

K, watched the video.. I've heard that St. Ives Apricot Scrub (which I thought rocked in high school haha) actually cuts up your skin! I have been using my Olay thing daily but I'll have to rethink that- I'm not using it for very long because like you said, I didn't want to hurt my skin. I use that scrub (that was full size from the Costco kit) probably once a week, maybe twice, because it seems pretty harsh. I use this in the shower about twice a week (just w/ fingers) and I love it! http://www.lorealparisusa.com/_us/_en/default.aspx#/?page=top{userdata//d+d//|diagnostic|main:pdp//objectid+SK26_3//{pdp_tab:pdp_overview//objectid+SK26_3//}|media:_blank|nav|overlay:_blank}

Oh, and I'm going to get the t-gel for my 11 year old- she was complaining of a the same thing and I was just going to start googling what I should try for her. Thanks!

Oh my gosh, Jen you are seriously my hero!! Two of the things you talked about in your video are things that I have recently noticed/have troubles with. We moved to Wyoming and it is super dry here too. My scalp has gotten so dry and itchy so I'm excited to get the T-Gel. And I've noticed my undereyes getting more wrinkles but also they seem dryer and I have been trying so many different products to try to fix it and nothing has worked so far! Thank you thank you for your reviews!!

Kara, I'm SO glad that this post helped. I was seriously DYING before I asked my friend about the whole shampoo thing!!!
