LOVE FOR LACQUER: March 2012 Favorites!

March 2012 Favorites!

Hey everyone! Another month has passed.. which means another monthly favorites post! I feel like I hardly have anything in here this month, which is unlikely for me. Warning - EXTREMELY picture heavy!

Merle Norman Dolled Up - I wore this lipstick to the Black Tie Event on St. Patrick's Day and got SO many compliments. It's the brightest, prettiest fuchsia lipstick ever!

Maybelline Coral Crush - I have been looking for the perfect coral lipstick and this is it. It's so creamy and lasts for hours! 

Pams & Kin Love Story - You have heard me rave & rave about P&K probably every single day throughout the month of March. I only have positive things to say about this brand. The polish is amazing, the colors are stunning & Parris & Kiri are two of the sweetest girls I have ever met! 

Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker - I know I'm not alone in this. I have been bit by the indie bug... BAD. I think I've ordered from every single shop that was open this month. Jawbreaker is one of the most unique colors I have in my collection. It's amazing.. and if you're able to snag one during her re-open tomorrow, you won't regret it! Etsy

Hong Kong Girl Top Coat - I purchased this from Glisten & Glow for $5 and change and it's the best 5 bucks I have ever spent. Never have I had a topcoat that lasts as long as this does and makes your nails ROCK HARD. Perfection.

Jess What I Wanted - An amazing follower & friend of mine offered to make this polish when I couldn't decide what to wear on my nails for the Black Tie Event. I did a separate blog post on this, so I won't go into too many details but this was probably the sweetest thing anyone has ever done for me. And how adorable is the personalized label?!

Milani Baked Blush 08 Corallina - Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. I love Milani baked products. The pigmentation on them is superb. This one is a coral-peachy blush that gives you that pinched cheek sort of look. 

Look at that swatch!!

Milani Baked Bronzer - 04 Glow - Perfect bronzer for Spring. It's not too dark and is perfect when you just want your skin to glow!


Urban Decay Naked Palette - I love the entire Naked palette, but the colors I was gravitating towards  for the month of March were Sidecar, Sin, & Toasted

Sin, Naked, Sidecar


EOS Lip Balm - Honey Dew  - Moisturizing and adorable. I reviewed a bunch of these this past week .. so there isn't really too much more to say. 

Poppie Jones Color Block Clutch - I purchased this from and just love it SO much. It's huge and is able to fit my phone, keys, lipstick, powder, mini kabuki brush, ID & misc cards... and more! I believe they have other color combos as well! 

** Random Favorites!! **

The Hunger Games - Obviouslyyy! I saw the movie on opening day and was blown away. I am DYING to go see it again. If you haven't read this series..PLEASE DO. You won't regret it!

Pams & Kin - I knew before March even began, they were going to end up in this post. Parris & Kiri are two sweet girls from the San Francisco area who were born with glitter in their veins and a real creative gene.  They believe in bold, fun colors, leopard print and always having phancy phalanges! Life's too short for settling.. SHAKE IT UP! You can find them on facebook --> Pams & Kin & order from their Esty store --> PamsAndKin

Which brings me to my next favorite -
