March Favourites













Hi ladies, today I thought I would share with you my favourite products from the month of March, I found in March my base makeup pretty much stayed the same but I did make a few new additions in terms of the colour I applied to my make up and I also had a bit of a skincare shake up so I thought I would feature all of that in this post because I love doing favourites  I think it's a really good summary of what I've been loving this month.

Peaches & Clean - Soap and Glory
I won't ramble on about this too much because I've only just wrote a whole post about it on my blog here, this product for me was a slight disappointment at first and I thought I wouldn't really get the use out of it but I've found using it as a mask really works and it's an amazing treatment for my face when my skins feeling a bit blah, so for that purpose I love it and it's been really helping my skin this month.

Johnson's Face Care Hydrating 24 Hour Day Cream - SP15 - 
This bad boy needs some loving on my blog one day soon, I absolutely love this day cream so much, I cannot rave about it enough, it just refreshes my face every single morning, helps to keep my makeup on for longer and really nourishes my skin. To be honest I am absolutely rubbish at sticking to a proper skin care routinue but this has been a permanent feature on my face every day for well over a month and I actually look forward to using this, for some reason my skin laps this product up and loves it & it's cheap as chips too.

Mac Dazzleglass - Creme Glass - Demure
I have been reaching for more coral and nude lip colours this month just due to the fact that I wanted to kind of move away from my pink colours because I think nudes and peaches are much more Spring appropriate  I got a set of these creme sheen glasses for Christmas here and I haven't really given this much loving but I absolutely love it and I love how creamy it is, and it looks amazing with a smokey eye for night time wear too.

Make Up Academy Lipstick - Shade 7
I have also been using this this month because it's a really perfect shade for Spring, this is a perfect way for me too add a slightly more bright colour into my makeup regime, i'm so scared of wearing bright colours but because this is a really light peachy colour I just think it looks really nice especially combined with the Mac glass I spoke about above. You can have a closer look at this lipstick in all old post here.

Bourjois Bronzing Powder - 
I love this product, it's one of my favourite products ever and I just think it's the perfect bronzer for a whole range of different skin tones and people, I love that it works as a perfect contour colour but isn't 'too flat' which means you can use it to help fully bronze your face too. This product is amazing in my eyes and I would recommend it to every body. You can find the full review of this product - here.

Maybelline 'The Rocket' Mascara - 
I purchased this mascara a few months ago in Boots when it first came out and I've been loving it ever since. It lengthens and volumises and I find that it just really agrees with my lashes. It does have a plastic bristle which normally I am a bit iffy about but for some reason this just works for me and I really like reaching for it in the mornings. I love maybelline mascara's in general and I find the packaging and name of this product in particular is really adorable.

Barry M Nail Paints -
I really like Barry M as a brand and think they produce some of the best nail polishes around, for me I don't understand spending a huge amount on a nail colour when you can get some amazing ones on a budget, these don't chip and have an amazing opaque coverage and the shade range is pretty perfect too. I have chosen these two colours this month just because they're perfect colours for spring and I have been using the hot pink and pale blue on my toe nails throughout the month, they really are my two favourite nail varnish picks.

Make Up Academy - Undressed Palette
This is another cheap as chips product but one that I have a huge amount of loving for, the MUA Undressed Palette is meant to be a great dupe for the first Urban Decay Naked Palette, I own the second palette but always see so much attention and loving on the first palette which I now want soooo bad. I love the colours in this dupe, they're amazing and for me this palette has been all I have worn on my eyes for the whole month.

Anyway I hope you all enjoyed my favourites post and I will speak to you all really soon!
Lots of Love
