In order to stop myself from purchasing so many makeup items on a whim, I’ve started writing down all the purchases I make each month. Albeit, this self-shaming technique hasn’t quite worked just yet because I bought quite a few several makeup bits this month, but it’s the thought that counts… right?
My constant makeup shopping gave me an idea of doing a “standout beauty purchases of” post each month, and this month of course means we’re here to talk about the standout beauty purchases of March. I’m hoping this will 1) make me think about all the items I purchase instead of impulse shopping and 2) show you guys the products that truly stood out to me in case you’re looking to pick up something new that’s worth checking out.
Jouer Lip Cremes.* These were kindly sent to me, but I couldn’t not mention them. I mean, a weightless, liquid lipstick? It would be wrong of me not to mention them because they’re ah-maze-ing, and you need them on your lips ASAP. My faves have to be: Petale de Rose, Lychee, Cassis, Melon, Dulce de Leche, and Cerise. You can read my full review on them here.
Lorac Alter Ego Lip Glosses. I picked up the shades Duchess and Seductress after trying out the shade CEO in February and falling in love with it. These glosses aren’t sticky, which is partially why I love them so much. They’re pigmented and creamy, but they still are glossy and not so opaque that they’re basically creamy lipsticks in a tube.
Josie Maran Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Veil. I’ve really been into a more natural looking highlight, and this illuminizing powder has been a perfect addition for that reason. This is very subtle so you could even apply a light dusting all over the face if you just want to oomph up your look.
Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed. I love this liquid luminizer for when you want to add a warm glow to the skin, which is perfect for spring/summer. This isn’t too heavy or thick. It’s actually pretty liquidy and lightweight so it applies really nicely, blends easily, and isn’t too “disco ball” once applied.
I purchased a lot of products this month, but what’s new? I’m beginning to realize though that I need to think before I shop because out of the near 30 products I picked up, only a handful are ones I really love and stood out to me.
