March Makeup Most Wanted

Spring into a new season with these March makeup products that I have been obsessed with this month.

Covergirl Outlast All-Day Custom Reds Lip Color – I have tried a lot of lipsticks that said they were going to last a long time, but Covergirl has finally done it. This two-step lip color is the longest lasting lipstick that I’ve ever tried. It’s really simple, you just apply the colour first, wait a minute and then apply the clear coat over top. Boom! You have lipstick that will last all day. I even had a hard time getting it off of my lips. I fell asleep with lipstick on one night and it was still on the next morning! This lipstick is UNREAL! The red shades that I tried were quiet bold, but really beautiful.

Rodial Baking Powder – I’m not going to lie, I don’t really get the idea of baking. I also don’t have time to bake my makeup before leaving the house. That doesn’t make my love of this powder any less. Instead of baking my makeup and dusting it off later, I have been using it as a finishing powder. I just dust a light layer over my foundation before I leave the house for a minor bake. Forget the long lasting powder of the bake, I love the matte finish that my skin gets when I use it. Clearly this powder is super versatile, making it key in my makeup bag.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream – Finally, a super moisturizing gel cream for extra dry skin that doesn’t feel heavy on my face. I fell in love with gel moisturizers because it is perfect for my skin. I get dry skin, but I also have acne. I need all the same anti-aging and boosting properties, but my skin can’t handle heavy thick moisturizers. I get greasy very easily. Neutrogena lets me get a major moisture boost without that issue. It absorbs into my skin leaving it feeling dry and matte, but also soft. This one is for anyone who is sick of fighting with moisturizers and their skin. Neutrogena’s Hydro Boost is the saving grace this winter.

Sebastian Volupt Spray High Impact Volume – I used to love spray gel in high school. It was probably the only product that I used, and I used it every day. Since then I’ve moved on to other products, but getting this newer product was like meeting an old friend. I love this product because it gives you hold without making my hair stiff. It’s really nice on curls or beach waves to get a hold without the crunch of mousse.

Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Shampoo & Conditioner – Herbal Essences new hair care collection Bio:Renew sounds very fancy in the description. It’s made with a special blend of antioxidants, aloe and sea kelp. It’s supposed to bring your hair back to life in 21 days (although it doesn’t say how many washes that is). I love it because, while it has all of those great properties, it still feels like classic Herbal Essences. The Coconut Milk scent smells amazing. My hair looks great, it’s shiny and easy to manage. I can’t ask for anything else!

Rodial Makeup Collection

I’ve loved Rodial skincare since the first time I tried it. You cannot imagine the joy within me when I heard they were developing a full makeup line. The Rodial line is no nonsense. It’s been edited and paired down to only offer you the sensible colours and products that you actually need. It’s not fancy with lots of sparkle and flash. Here are some of the most exciting products in the line:


Eye Sculpt – This is their eye shadow. It only comes in one colour. That’s right, just one colour. That colour is brown. It’s a shadow that is perfect for layering. Start with just a tint of this mousse eye shadow for a day look. Layer it on for a look that is much more dramatic. While big palettes are fun, I love how simple they have made this!


Glamolash Mascara XXL – Drama! Drama! Drama! This mascara is all about drama! This is Rodial’s night time mascara. The have a skinny mascara that is for the day, but I love super long bold lashes. I have to say though, the first time I put this on, I wondered if this mascara was too much for work. I’ve never thought of that before. This is what mascara should be all about!

rodial glamstick

Glamstick – This is the one place where Rodial does offer a lot of colour options. Their glamsticks offer light colour with maximum moisturizer. Everyone who has ever worried about dry lips should get a glamstick because they are perfect for repairing the moisture.


Instaglam Highlighter – This season is all about contouring and highlighting and this is one of our favourites. This highlighter is very light, so that you can get just a touch of reflective shimmer in the light. You can start light and then add more and more. You can even use it on new places, like on top of your shadow to get that wet eye shadow look.
