March Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my March favorites. It seems like this month has been 97 years long and there’s been a lot going on, but I hope you’re all doing well. I have a good group of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black. This is a product I used long ago and loved and now having used it a few times since getting it, I still love it. It glides on really smooth, there is room for error with this liner which you don’t always get and once it dries then it’s not smudging or going anywhere.

My next Play favorite is the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Moisturizer with Ceramides. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. It’s a rich cream that sinks in quickly and because it is whipped, feels nice and light on the skin. It makes my skin really soft and it feels very moisturized. Definitely a moisturizer I would recommend if you’re looking for a new one.

And my last Play favorite is the Versace Bright Crystal perfume. This is a really well balanced scent. It’s fruity and floral with the perfect hint of freshness. A great scent for spring and summer and I have ordered a full size of this perfume. If you haven’t smelled this and you get the chance, I say definitely do.

My next two favorites come from the winter Walmart Beauty Box, which I’ll link down below, and the first is the Curel Dry Skin Therapy Hydra Skin Moisturizer. I use the Curel Wet Skin Moisturizer and love that so I had high hopes for this and it delivered. It sinks in to the skin quickly, leaves my skin feeling really moisturized but not greasy and has a nice almost citrusy scent.

My other Walmart Beauty Box favorite is the Color Club Nail Lacquer in 1198, It’s Complicated. This is a really pretty, nicely pigmented magenta shade. The formula is nice, it goes on smooth and for me two coats was perfect. It also held up pretty well and lasted on my nails once it was on. This is a brand I hadn’t purchased from before but now I’m definitely going to see what other polishes they have.

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size Shadow palette in Rose Water. This is a mix of pinks and purples. The shimmers are really nicely pigmented and creamy and the mattes are very smooth. I’ve talked about a few of these and I definitely recommend them, they’re great little palettes.

Moving on I have a drink favorite and it’s the Pure Leaf Raspberry Tea. Pure Leaf is always my go to if I want a good tea in a bottle and I typically stick with the same one or two, but I love raspberry tea so I decided to try it and I’m glad I did. I also saw that Pure Leaf has some new and different teas and I picked up a Peach Hibiscus to try, and I’m excited about that. It’s the perfect spring/summer tea flavor.

I want to quickly mention something that isn’t exactly a favorite because I just started watching last night, but I’m 3 episodes in to Tiger King on Netflix and holy wow. It’s already not what I expected. No spoilers, but I want to know if you guys are watching/have watched and what do you think?

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s AC/DC’s album Rock Or Bust. Something I’ve been doing recently is a deep dive into some of my favorite bands/musicians and listening to music of theirs that I haven’t heard or have forgotten about. It’s been a lot of fun. The songs on this album are pretty short, but in this case it works. Like most AC/DC songs the chorus’ are catchy and when you hear a riff you know it’s them you’re listening to. Overall great album. Speaking of musicians I like, I want to wish Slowhand himself, Eric Clapton a happy 75th birthday. I’m listening to music as I write this.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites let me know and if not I’d love to know what your March favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you all had a good March :).

Winter 2020 Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another review and this time it’s of the Winter 2020 Walmart Beauty Box. It is a little hard to call this a winter box when I received it on March 12th, but I’m happy that it came nonetheless. The theme for this box is Winter Wonders. The box itself is white with a Walmart logo in the center that is made of lipstick swatches in various reds and pinks and the inside of the box is blue.

The first product we have is the Herbal Essences bio:renew Birch Bark Extract shampoo and conditioner. These have 0% sulfates, parabens, gluten and colorants and are supposed to have gentle color protection. I haven’t used Herbal Essences in a very long time, but I’m going to give this to a friend that I know loves it.

Next we have the Colgate Optic White Renewal toothpaste. This says it’s high impact white, removes 10 years of yellow stains and is 3% hydrogen peroxide. It’s also sugar free, enamel safe, gluten free and vegan. I have a little kit I carry in my handbag that has little things like this in it so that’s exactly where this is going to go.

Moving on we have the Curel Dry Skin Therapy Hydra Skin Moisturizer with Ceramide Complex. This says it immediately absorbs and delivers long lasting non greasy moisture. I use the Curel Wet Skin Moisturizer and I really like that. I don’t have particularly dry skin, but extra moisture is always a plus so I’ll let you guys know what I think of this.

The second to last product we have is the NYX Makeup Crew 2 piece set. You get two lipsticks in this set. One is a soft matte lip cream and the other is a soft matte metallic lip cream and they’re both in the shade California. I have a couple of the NYX soft matte lip creams and I like them. They have a whipped texture, they’re light on the lips and they have a pretty long wear time. I am mildly concerned to wear the metallic just because the swatch, while gorgeous, was really metallic. But we’ll see.

And the last product we have is the Color Club Nail Lacquer in 1198, It’s Complicated. Color Club is a brand I know of, but haven’t tried anything from. This is a really pretty magenta shade. I do have this on my nails now and it’s as pretty on as it is in the bottle. I put this on my nails on Friday, it’s now Monday and it’s holding up well. This went on great and it seems to have a nice formula.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your Winter Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get next season :).
