March 2013 Favorites

I don't always do favorites posts but this month I very clearly favored certain products so I figured it was definitely worth a post!
Redken Sheer Straight Gel - I'm not much of a gel person, or even a hair product person in general. Usually I just use my Redken Slim Supreme but ever since my hair cut at the end of February, I've needed something more. This helps make my hair really straight and hold my style a lot longer. It doesn't make my hair feel sticky or stiff. An all around win in my book.
Urban Decay De Slick - This is a mini I got from Sephora back in December and I just pulled it out this month in an attempt to use up some samples and minis. I do have a full size of Dew Me but this is fantastic for days when I want a less dewy look. It really makes my makeup last. I really want to get a full size of either this or All Nighter, but it will have to wait until I use up some of my other setting sprays.
Holika Holika Moisture Petit BB cream - My first experience with an Asian BB cream was a fantastic success! It's so moisturizing, has great coverage, and looks really natural. I'll definitely include it in my haul post on Wednesday and I might even do a review!
Batiste Dry Shampoo - This was also a new purchase this month. I needed a new dry shampoo (also because of my hair cut) and I decided to get this one because I'd heard lots of good things. It does exactly what I expected of it, makes my second day hair feel less oily and look a lot nicer.
Benefit Coralista - I already wrote a whole post about it but this was the one blush I wore the very most this month. I've already got a small dip in it and the idea of using it up makes me want to run out and buy a full size.
Beauty blender - Again, another new product this month but long story short, this is worth all the hype it gets. It does take a little more time than a brush or my hands but I love it!
Wet N Wild Vanity Palette - I was reminded I had this earlier this month and I've been loving using this. I'm trying to kill my lemming for Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette and it's only sort of working. Regardless, the quality of the shadows is really top notch and I wish WNW still made these.

What were your favorites this month? Also, look out for a massive collective haul on Wednesday!


  1. I should really get around to buying a beauty blender. Everyone seems to love them.

    1. I put it off for a long time but I finally decided to take the plunge when my skin got so dry that brushes were only exacerbating the problem! I feel like it takes more time than I thought to get everything blended out but I do really love the finish.
