"I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart."

Hello beauties!! April 1st already! Spring is here and.... Well, in Buffalo it has still been snowing. I'm jealous of all my dolls in gorgeous warm weather but hopefully it'll get here soon!
Sorry I've been MIA lately, I had yet another allergic reaction and haven't worn makeup in a week. I finally figured out what was causing it but it really caused havoc on my skin and it's still not 100% yet! I debated doing a favorites this month because I don't have too many things and I've been pretty much just using my usual products but I figured why not?! These are things I absolutely love so hopefully you'll find something new to try and love! :)
The notes: blackberry, grapefruit, pear, jasmine, lychee, blue wisteria, white woods, musk, and coconut water. On Sephora's site the style is ethereal, free-spirited, luminous... I'd say that's the perfect description. It's floral without being obnoxious. I'm not huge into floral scents but this, I adore and male friends have complimented this scent as well so it's not one of those that only women seem to like!
It's unique and beautiful, it lasts really well on me and I've grabbed for this more than any of my other perfumes lately.
I've been trying to use different palettes every time I wear makeup but the matte shades in the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette have been my absolute favorites. You guys know I love the warm tones and browns and these are perfect for the crease and they pair with any look! Love!
NARS Persia.... Oh, you know I love this shade. I mention it all the time. But if you don't own this? Go get it. Don't be intimidated. Especially if you like browns, oranges, warm shades. This is SO absolutely beautiful in the crease. It's super pigmented but it can be applied with a light hand for just a gorgeous wash of color. It's looks super red in the photo above but it's a beautiful matte brick orange. It's described as paprika.
A moment of silence......... Le sigh....... I know NARS singles are super expensive, at $25, it may scare most away... But this is worth every single penny.
I don't often wear highlighters because I struggle with texture on my face, especially near my cheekbones. But in March, my skin was really great so I used highlighters as much as I could while it behaved! This is Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone. You always hear about Opal, but this is just as beautiful! It's a gorgeous pale gold and works really nice with my pale skin! I usually can't wear golds as highlighters but this is light enough to work.
So pretty! And insanely pigmented! I also love using this as an eyeshadow too. On the inner corner or lid! Beautiful!
NYX's Blush in Mocha... This is a gorgeous rosy pink shade that looks beautiful paired with so many different makeup looks!
I grabbed for it a lot this month!
Last but certainly not least, ColourPop Lippie Pencils! They've been my go-to lip pencils, all the shades I own but most often, I wore a pink/nude lip so these three are my favorites!
From left to right: Frida, Brink and Bound!
These are so creamy!!! They glide on like a dream!
