March Beauty Favorites!

We are quickly and happily entering into Spring, and every season I like to change up my make up. Yes, I'm make up obsessed but Sephora gets me everytime! I can't be the only one who gets googley eyed the second once they walk in the store! haha.
Last month's beauty favorites are the result of receiving Sephora gift cards for my birthday (yay!) I had many new products that I wanted to try and finally got around to purchasing them.
Starting with the Clinique Superprimer that I chose as a 100 point perk at Sephora, I must say I'm in love with this primer! I was on the hunt for a new primer; I have tried Benefit's POREfessional, Smashbox Photoready Primer and even Hourglass' Primer but I didn't love any of them enough to repurchase until I got this baby, randomly. It's not a silicone primer but is thick enough and applies smoothly. It isn't runny and holds my make up in place all day. I will definitely repurchase this one!
Continuing with the contour craze, I caved and purchased Kat Von D's Shadelight contour palette and was presently surprised. I initially wanted a creme contour palette but I'm not someone who heavily contours so opted for a powder palette and enjoy the selection that this palette provides. There are 3 contour shades and 3 highlight shades. I usually use the first 2 shades for an everyday look but use the darker shades if I'm wearing a more dramatic look. 
Top Row: Lucid, Lyric, Levitation / Bottom Row: Sombre, Shadowplay, Subconscious
Next up is a cult favorite and I've heard about it for years and years but never tried and it's the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer. I picked this up at the drugstore and is my new favorite low end concealer. It has a foam dome applicator and provides medium build able coverage. 
Another favorite was the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Creamy Beige which is a cream eyeshadow. I've used this on it's own and as a eyeshadow primer for darker brown looks. It's a taupey/mauvey color that I wore most of the month and it can also be found at the drugstore. 
The last two favorites of the month were both purchased as a part of my huge birthday Sephora haul. Sephora is truly a dangerous, yet wonderful place. I've talked about the Nars Audacious Lipsticks that came out last fall and I included the shade 'Aubrey' in my holiday gift guide but I picked up yet another nude-brown shade. You can't go wrong with nude lipsticks! I have way too many but yet I continue to get more. This is the shade 'Barbara' and its my "my lips but better" shade. It's always in my purse, I take it with me everywhere!
And, my final favorite of the month was this Agenist Ultimate Anti-Aging Melting Cleanser which has been sent to me by the skincare angels! I first heard about it from a beauty vlogger, Kathleen Lights, who is super hilarious and absolutely fab and she raved about it. I did some more research and figured I'd give it a try. When you squeeze it out of the tube, it starts off as a gel, then turns to an oil and once you add water it turns into a milk that moistures the skin and takes off all your makeup! I really love the smell and my skin looks great the next morning after using it. This has become my new HG cleanser.
