March 2011 Favorites!

Hey ladies and gents~

Allow me to present some items that I've been really enjoying and reaching for a lot during the month of March!  It's been a hectic month, but I still had a bit of time to play with my toys =)

1) Tresemme Heat Tamer--This is an oldie but a goodie.  I've always loved this product but I've been experimenting with my hair a lot more so I've been reaching for this a lot.  It smells really nice and is relatively inexpensive (around $6 USD and under).  It does a fantastic job of keeping my hair from burning.

2.) Teasing Comb--I got this from some independent beauty store in some shopping outlet.  It has no name or brand that I know of, and I can't tell you where you can get this comb.  At first glance it looks like a normal rattail comb but if you look closely, you can see that the teeth are uneven.  This works so much better than a rattail comb, and does a lovely job when my hair needs a little bit more "oomph."

3.) Too Faced Natural Eye Collection Palette--I'm not sure why it's called natural eye but it isn't really.  I've been reaching this on date nights where my company does not consist of people I am super familiar with.  In other words, I don't want to rock too much color and seem "normal" in their presence if that makes sense.  In any case, I love this palette because I can make a few bombass night (and day!) looks that are not over the top.  The gold and brown combination especially is a favorite of mine, and looks great on any skin tone.

4.) Vaseline Lip Therapy--I received this as a prize from Emma of Birds Decorate Branches last Christmas as I won her giveaway.  After coming back from Quebec my lips were far from sexy after having been beaten by the cold and dry weather.  This is the only stuff that I feel really soothes my lips.

5.) Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer--I'm sorry to say that this has been discontinued, because it certainly is a wonderful product.  I purchased this over the summer and found it too light for me, so I waited till I lightened up again during the winter.  I use this wherever I need some extra coverage, including under the eyes.  I love how it provides good coverage and doesn't get cakey if applied correctly.

I'm trying to keep it short and sweet cause I am butt tired (as usual....what else is new?).  Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about the aforementioned products.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Much love,

[I have nothing to disclose.]


  1. I never really understood why it was called a "Natural Eye Palette" either. It's way too shimmery for that, IMO. Still a great palette, I hear. I just never actually wound up buying it myself.

  2. Great favorites! That Tresemme Heat Tamer is the next on my list of heat protectants to try. I LOVE Too Faced Natural Eye Palette and I agree with you when you say it's not really natural. It's super pigmented and pretty for a night out.
