These simple beauty products are so easy to use! - M Loves M @marmar

As you can imagine, our little girl is taking up a lot of our time! When it came time to choose what products to try this month, I reached for only simple beauty products that would be easy to use. With limited time for primping, I’m hoping these hair, makeup, and skincare products will give me a lot of bang for my buck!

March Beauty Picks: Simple Beauty Products

Kristin Ess Signature Gloss

I am excited to use this gloss because its designed to give my hair a glossy and toned look, perfect for keeping it looking fresh between salon appointment (which lets be honest, might not be for a while!) It is a in-shower treatment, so will be super easy to use and give my hair that extra boost with minimum effort.

Erno Laszlo Multi-Task Eye Serum Mask

Multi tasking with beauty products is always a huge plus, especially when the product is jammed packed with vitamins. I haven’t been getting a lot of sleep and noticed that I have darker and puffier under eyes than usual. This mask tackles that tired look and contains glycerin and vitamin B3 which simultaneously hydrates and illuminates the under eyes. It also contains Gotu Kola and other ant-inflammatories which can help calm stressed skin and improve circulation which I love!

Dr Brandt Recovery Sleeping Mask

This overnight leave on mask is the perfect solution for any dryness, redness, or irritation. We’ve had our heater on a lot this month and it’s taking a toll on my skin. What I like about this mask is that it takes the skin’s naturally occurring flora and locks in moisture overnight and restores natural pH levels.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Medium 1 Custard

I have always had good luck with NARS, so I am looking forward to use this creamy concealer. The reviews said it looks super natural as it works to optically correct rather than mask imperfections. With a multi-active botanical blend, it has the ability to both reduce lines and wrinkles and even out skin tone. It also is free of sulfates and paragons, a great bonus!

Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation in Vienna 

Similar to the concealer, the NARS foundation is supposed to be lightweight and natural looking, but can last for 16 hours! This foundation, to my surprise, is full of a blend of fruit extracts, which helps support skin’s elastic fibers, smoothing out the skin’s texture.

Lancer Dani Glowing Skin Perfector

The name says it all! I’d love perfect skin and as this line is loved by celebrities, I’m hoping this cream will really work! This formula is designed to catch the light so your skin looks glowy and imperfections are less noticeable. Here’s hoping it lives up to the hype!


Kristin Ess Signature Hair Water

Great for a refresher but most of the time I forgot about using it and didn’t find myself using it very often. if you’re someone that has dry hair though, or likes to restyle often, this product would be amazing. I love how it makes my hair smell!

Buxom Lip Plumping in Dolly

I was excited to try this because when I featured it on Instagram I got several comments from people about this color in particular. Everyone who mentioned it said how flattering it is and how they always get a lot of compliments when they wear it. I felt like it was a really flattering shade of pink and I liked how it felt. And I did get a lot of questions about it too! I heard the White Russian color is also really pretty for a nude so I’m going to try that one out next!

Pixi Overnight Glow Serum

I really liked this overnight glow serum!  It’s a great product if you don’t have time to exfoliate daily because you just put it on before bed.  I felt like I woke up with my skin feeling very clear and bright. Another plus that I highlighted before is that it’s not tested on animals and it’s made with natural ingredients. Love that!

JOSIE MARAN Argan Moonstone Glow Highlighting Stick

If you want a very subtle glow, I’d say try this highlighting stick. For me, I was hoping for a bit more of a glow and highlight. I felt like I just tried to layer it on and wasn’t getting the exact look I was hoping for. Maybe if my skin was clearer, this would be a little more noticeable, but I have a lot of red pigmentation that could be canceling it out a bit.

KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Brightening 24H Moisturizer

I’m such a fan of Korres products. I read in some reviews that people were displeased with the change in consistency with this new moisturizer but I didn’t really mind it. One thing to note though, is that it’s very perfumey, so if you’re not into rose this might not be the product for you. Personally, I didn’t mind it, and I also liked that it was another way to bring Vitamin C into my routine. Vitamin C is such an important ingredient for getting that bright and glowy look!
