March Favorites

Happy April everyone! 
Here are my top products of the month :)

1. Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion
 This blue toner is the best acne treatment I've ever used. I break out occasionally around the nose and the chin and I really really really really hate it! Once I get a pimple, it not only hurts, but looks kind of bad and stupid. Moreover, it takes like a million years to get rid of the scaring. So what I've learned through this experience is, PREVENTION is the best when it comes to acne- and that's what this toner exactly does for you! I only apply this toner on the areas where I usually break out and voila! My face is clearer than ever. Now I only break out around my chin (only 1 or 2) when the monthly events occur.
*Side note : This toner can be very drying and even stingy, so only use on the oily areas (contains alcohol). And of course you have to be washing your face everyday to see the results.

2. MAC Eye Shadows in All That Glitters, Shale, Satin Taupe, Mulch
L-R : All That Glitters, Shale, Satin Taupe, Mulch
L-R : All That Glitters, Shale, Satin Taupe, Mulch
All That Glitters is a orange-y champagne with iridescent sheen. It is a great all-over-the-lid color for simple neutral looks. I like to use this shadow on busy days or when I go to the gym (yes, I wear makeup to the gym, but not all the time :p).
Shale is a purplish brown with a wee bit of silver-y sheen. I got this shadow about a year ago and I hated it so much, because a lot of times it made me look like someone punched me in the eye. I don't know what happened to my skin tone, but now it actually looks really good! So weird.
Satin Taupe is a nice shimmery taupe color. I love how the shadow is super pigmented and creamy. A must have for neutral lovers.
Mulch is a warm toned brown with gold flecks. When I first got this eye shadow, I didn't care about it so much, because I had so many browns at that time and didn't think it was very unique. Now, I love using this for the crease or the outer v. It goes well with many shades like greens and purples.

3. Nars Blush in Desire
All time favorite blush. What can I say.

4. Benefit Instant Brow Pencil
I think I found my love! It is the best eye brow product so far (I've used pencils, waxes, gels, and powders from all kind of brands like MAC, ELF, Anastasia, Benefit, UD, Revlon, Hera, etc), Will do a full review on this very soon <3
Here are the swatchy swatches for you :)
L-R : Nars Desire, Nars Desire blended out, Benefit Instant Brow Pencil
5. Starbucks Cake Pops!
I am so happy that Starbucks came up with these cute cake pops! They are delish ^^ and adorable. Whenever I am craving for cake, I can go to Starbucks and get these without feeling guilty, 'cause they are only 180 calories. The Birthday Cake is my favorite (the pink one).

What were your favorites of the month?
I'd love to hear from you-

  4. Oooh, I really like Taupe. Amy, you should look into Amelia's eyeshadows when you're in Korea. I've already banned myself from my any eyeshadows because I'm going to a whole load from Amelia. I personally think Mac eyeshadows are over-hyped..They're not THAT pigmented. YOu know? Anyways, I thought you'd want to know! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Desire too! I'm wearing Amour today and omgsh Nars is the best!
