My Beauty Favorites — Week of March 13-19, 2017

It was 80 degrees in Kansas City today! Crazy!  I even had the air conditioner on.  It’s definitely spring here (officially tomorrow) and this makes me want to change up my makeup.

I am loving gorgeous new makeup this week!  From bright color to amazing new formula’s, here are my current favorite makeup picks:

Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick ($8 USD) — True Color Nourishing Lipstick offers full coverage, lasting color and conditioning care in one nourishing lipstick. Infused with jojoba oil, vitamin E, collagen and lanolin. Keeps lips feeling conditioned & moisturized even after you take it off. I love how hydrating it is!

Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara ($8 USD) — True Color Nourishing Mascara makes lashes look longer, feel healthier and conditioned without clumping, smudging or flaking with argan and coconut oils.  It’s also very well pigmented and really makes my lashes look long.
