We're only ten days into March, and it's already been a very good month beauty-wise. I've been having such a good time trying out some new products, and it was about time to round up a few standouts so far.
Glossier Cloud Paint,* 'Puff' & 'Dusk' | (review | 20% off) If you didn't predict me mentioning these, then you must be new here (welcome!). I fall hard for pretty much every Glossier product, and these new beautiful blushes are no different. They're a gel-cream formula that blends so effortlessly into the skin and leaves the best natural-looking flush. I was sent all four shades, but so far my favorites have been Puff, the cool pink, and Dusk, the brown-y nude. Check out my review to see swatches and my rep page to get 20% off your first order!
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Cream | I've been hoarding sample tubes of this stuff for over a year now, and once I finished them up I decided I needed the full size ASAP. It's such a lovely, nourishing cream that works well for me morning or night. It leaves my skin feeling super hydrated and soothed, and I especially like pairing it with the Ceramidin Liquid (used as my serum step). It works well with pretty much all of my other skincare products, so it's really versatile and I've been using it often no matter what other products I've picked out.
CosRX Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream | I've been on a kick of trying new moisturizers lately. I'm still head over heels for the Glossier Priming Moisturizer Rich, but I just couldn't resist trying a couple new ones. I saw this mentioned on Into The Gloss recently, and the woman featured had such beautiful skin that I immediately added this to my cart. This cream has a more gel-like texture than the Dr. Jart+, but it leaves my skin super dewy and plump. It's beautiful and it's already worked its way up to holy grail status I think. You may not like it if you don't like feeling your skincare products on your skin, though (with my dry skin, it's one of my favorite feelings in the world). I've tried a few products from CosRX now and they've all been great, so let me know if you'd like to see a little brand focus post or something.
NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer, 'Chantilly' & 'Vanilla' | I am in LOVE with this new concealer. I resisted for a while because of the word "matte" in the name, but once my sister vouched for how beautiful of a product it was I couldn't resist (she's my ultimate enabler). I first picked up the shade Vanilla because that's my shade in the Radiant Creamy Concealer, but I think the Soft Matte Concealers might run a tad darker than those. I get my perfect match by mixing in a bit of Chantilly. I think this is the first time I've bought two shades of something to mix rather than just returning the color that didn't match - a true sign of how much I love this concealer. It has such a lovely creamy texture that melts into the skin and blends so easily. My skin is always on the dry side, but this never cakes up on me. I especially love it under the eyes because this baby does not crease. I've been using it on my eyelids as well to hide redness, and I've found it makes a great eyeshadow primer when set with powder (that tip came from my sister!).
Bite Beauty Lip Pencil, '010' | I just mentioned this in my New In Lip Products post earlier this week, but this one has been such a standout. I picked out my three shades without seeing any swatches first, and I'm most pleased with this one (especially after seeing it on Into the Gloss - I know, it's the second time I've mentioned them in this post). It's the most perfect shade for subtly enhancing my lips without looking obvious or bold, and it works well under a variety of other lip products. My favorite thing to pair it with so far, if I'm not just wearing it on its own, is the NARS Lip Gloss in Chelsea Girls (which is the pair I'm wearing in this selfie).
