|Spring/March-to-April 2013 Favourites!|
First up, face makeup. Since the weather has been nicer lately, I've been reaching for my dear friend — Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup in B20.

Since Summer is coming up, I have been changing it up with my blushers. I was obsessed with Benefit Box O' Powder in Hervana for the entire winter, but recently, I have using her older sister, Bella Bamba, pretty much exclusively.

For eye makeup, you all know how much I like Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection already...

I have also been loving these two drugstore gems! Yes, everyone should check them out because they're affordable and very good quality products.

I'm still not done with eye makeup, I've been loving the look of mascaras and I rarely leave the house without it. In particular, I've been loving L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara* and Revlon Lash Potion by Grow Luscious Volume and Length Mascara*, both in Blackest Black.
While I love them both, these two mascaras perform quite differently on me. The L'Oreal Million Lashes comes in a plastic brush with lots of long and short bristles that coat all the lashes, even the tiny ones that I didn't know I have, with colour and to add thickness to the entire look.

Revlon Lash Potion on the other hand comes in a traditional looking brush, but they call their wand the "Illusionist Wand". It does a great job providing both length and volume and the best part is that it holds my curl ALL DAY LONG.

Now for lips. I always love a subtle lip colour for any day and my lips are quite chapped, so these two lippies were great for me for the past few weeks.
I already wrote about why I like Maybelline Color Whispers by ColorSensational in Petal Rebel. But in short, I like that it's moisturizing and gives a subtle pop of colour on my lips. For intense moisturizing, I use Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm in Natural Mint*. It's great because it does exactly what it says, intense moisturizing.
Here are some swatches of all the makeup products mentioned...

I also want to add two fashion favourites. I have been wearing the two accessories below a lot.
