I say this in every monthly favourites post, I know but damn, where did this month go?! It flew by! It honestly feels like I wrote my February Favourites post just yesterday. March has been a pretty great month for me. I had a really good interview for an internship last Friday, it sounds like such an exciting role so here’s hoping I get it. Cross your fingers for me! I was also in the audience for Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway two weeks ago, that was an experience. I’m a huge fan of them and had never been in a live tv audience before, it’s interesting to see how it all works! The only downside was the 5 hour queue without any guarantee of getting in, but we did and I loved it!
So onto my March beauty favourites! You know how I said in this post I was trying to save money and stop spending so much on makeup? Well, I’m not doing too badly now but I still haven’t completely stopped, oops. There are a few new products featured in this month’s favourites..
NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam |
Now that it’s spring, I want dewy looking skin more than ever. This NYX Illuminator does the job perfectly either worn on its own or mixed with foundation. It really brightens up your complexion, making it look more luminous. It really is a gorgeous product and something I expect to use up really quickly!
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation |
I had seen so many posts recently about the newly reformulated Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, I had to go and buy it. I’ve always been a fan of Bourjois’ foundations and this one definitely does not disappoint! I’m not going to go into too much detail right now as a review will be coming shortly however if you have dry skin and love a lightweight foundation that can make your skin look flawlessly dewy, then say hello to your new favourite foundation, go and buy it, you NEED this!
Topshop Brow Palette |
As I mentioned in my last post here, I’ve recently fallen back in love with my Topshop Brow Palette. I’ve ditched the brow pencils and gone back to this as I find my brows look so much better and so much more natural, the way I like them! Unfortunately, this looks like it may no longer be available (boo!) so I’m going to have to find an alternative soon. If you have any brow palette recommendations please send them my way!
MAC Soar Lip Pencil |
One of my most worn lip products this month has been the beautiful Soar lip pencil from MAC. Something I lusted after for ages and ages and I finally got my hands on it. It’s so lovely. I love how sturdy the pencil is, I thought due to this it might be a little tough to apply but it isn’t, it’s so creamy, it glides on like a dream! I got this to go with my favourite MAC lipstick shade, Brave as not only is it the most gorgeous combo, Brave also has a tendency to bleed so I thought this might stop that. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to but I still love it!
Tanya Burr Cosmetics Soft Luxe Matte Lip Gloss in Martha Moo |
This swoon-worthy matte lip gloss was on my wishlist for ages whilst I desperately waited for a restock! When I first laid eyes on this beauty, it had completely sold out. It’s no surprise really, as it’s a ruddy gorgeous shade. I was so happy when it came back in! If you love the 90s nude lip trend, this is a great option as it’s a lovely muted brown with a slight hint of pink. My only let down is that these don’t dry to a complete matte finish, there is always a slight sheen to them. However, it’s still a beautiful addition to my collection and I love wearing it. I adore the packaging of these aswell, it makes a budget lippy look a little bit more high end!
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita |
Another matte liquid lipstick favourite! And a completely new shade choice for me, I own nothing like Lolita but I’ve lusted after it for sometime. Lolita is best described as a chestnut rose shade with warm undertones. I love the formula of these liquid lipsticks and it has quickly become a favourite. It’s smooth, fool proof in that it applies so evenly and has incredible lasting power, it’s among the best out of the many liquid lipsticks formulas I’ve tried. Not to mention, it’s probably the most comfortable matte lipstick formula too.
