Spring is finally here and I could not be more excited. Weather is finally starting to be enjoyable, flowers are blooming, new fashion for the new season is starting to pop up, and on top of that there are so many new things to try and check out right now.
Here are just a few of my favorites I’m currently obsessed with this month!
bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor
After getting a free sample of bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor in Swag, I have been hooked. It’s the perfect nude lipcolor that actually lasts and doesn’t dry out or chap your lips, like most matte lipcolors do. The best part, it doesn’t come off or smear after you eat which is a win-win in my book. What I love most about this line is that there are over 20 shades to choose from, including Wink, another one of my favorites.
Maybelline Master Precise Skinny™ Gel Pencil
When it comes to eyeliner I am a pretty brand loyal chick. I’ve used the same eyeliner for the past 2+ years. Why? Because, the biggest problem I have when it comes to eyeliners is the fact that I hate my eyeliner smearing and the brand I was using worked best. Fast forward to this weekend at the drug store…my eyeliner was out of stock but I was completely out and needed a new one. After going up and down the beauty aisle for who knows how long I ended up deciding on Maybelline’s new Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil. I wasn’t very happy about the decision because I don’t generally use this brand, but was willing to give it a try.
This is now my favorite eyeliner. Usually I cannot go an entire eight hour workday without having to fix a smudge or a smear. This, never went out of place. I will definitely be buying again!
Elizabeth and James: Nirvana White
The one thing I love about shopping for new fragrances is that there are so many to choose from, especially when the seasons change. Although some scents may smell good when you’re spraying on one after the other in a department store, you sometimes end up finding out the hard way that maybe you didn’t like the fragrance you bought as much as you thought you did. It’s happened to me more than once! My solution for this problem is to always go for the rollerball before investing in a huge bottle, which is exactly what I did when I came across Nirvana White. If you’re a fan of feminine, floral scents that aren’t too overpowering then definitely give this a try. I’ve received nothing but compliments since using this and think I’ve found my next favorite perfume.
The Possessions: A Novel by Sara Flannery Murphy
I found out about The Possessions while skimming through the pages of a magazine. It was listed as a must-read book for 2017, and although I haven’t quite gotten to the end of this novel it is most definitely a page-turner that I can’t seem to put down. If you’re a fan of mystery novels that include dark secrets, death, and grief intertwined with a seductive romance then this might just be the type of book you need in your life.
Big Little Lies
I have not read the book. I didn’t even know there was a book that this HBO limited series is based on, but after watching the first episode I am hooked on Big Little Lies and already have this book on my must-read list. If you’re not an HBO subscriber, no worries. You can watch the first episode for free, so check it out!
Spring is in the air and sometimes it’s nice to try and see new things. Whether you make a beauty purchase, pick up a new book, or start watching a new show it’s time for a small change in your life this season.
