March Favourites '16

Tuesday, April 05, 2016

Guess who's bringing back the monthly favourites. It's been a quite sometime, hasn't it? For those who have been reading xo.Janiecy.xo for a while, you know that my favourites posts tend to come in waves. Some months I'm feeling them and have lots of products to report, and other months not a single beauty nor clothing item stands out to me. That being said, I am happy to say that although March came and went in flash I managed to accumulate a considerably large amount of  favourites to share today. So without further ado let's dive in.

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick, okay I know that I just finishing saying that I've accumulated a lot of favourites this past month; and I know that starting off the post by mentioning a product that I featured in my Best of 2015 Beauty Round Up is kind of questionable, but just hear me out. Although I already mentioned how much I love using this foundation stick to contour my face, this past month I've finally settled on the best way to apply it. That's right, my new found application process has taken my love for this product to a whole new level, and yes you can expect an entire post dedicated to my cream contouring routine very soon.

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder, once again last month I gave into the hype and picked up everyone's favourite setting powder. No, I was not out of my MUFE HD powder, and yes I still very much like that powder. I just wanted to try something new, and I had a gift card okay. I honestly wasn't expecting to like this powder as much as I do. I really like that although it is transparent it has a slight tint to it, almost flesh like. It comes in handy when I'm setting my under eyes and "baking", which means that I can avoid that ghostly appearance post bake.

MAC Whirl Lip Liner, I finally checked off the infamous whirl liner off of my never ending mac wishlist. It's such a beautiful and unique shade; one that flatters a variety of skin tones. On me it sort of looks more purple than pink but still very much nude. I also love how it goes so well with a lot of the lipstick in my collection.

Maybelline Nude Nuance Lipstick, speaking of lipsticks that pair well with the liner. Lately I've been loving wearing this lipstick by Maybelline over top of whirl. It really helps extend the wear and it matches perfectly.
Benefit Watts Up Highlighter Stick, I believe I got this little itty bitty watts up as a point perk or birthday gift from Sephora, and I'm almost certain that it came with a mini they're real mascara too. Anyway, all this time later and I am finally using it. Like I mentioned previously, I have found a whole new appreciation for highlighting and contouring and this little gem has not only found its way into my routine but also into my heart.
Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers, it's official, I am now the proud owner of a pair of blue Stan Smiths. Okay so I may have gotten these shoes for Christmas but last month was the first time I was able to wear them out of the comfort of my room. You can see how I styled these lovelies in my most recent outfit post.

Music: Rihanna Anti Album, finally onto the music faves. Although I could go on and on about all the different albums and individual songs that I have been playing nonstop recently, I'll spare you and your precious time and only name the one albums that I've been playing all month long. I've been waiting for Rihanna's latest album since it was scheduled to be release back in December, and may I just say that has been well worth the wait. Fave tracks include: Needed Me, Close to You, Woo & Yeah, I Said It
