My March Favourites

Wednesday, 4 April 2012

In the month of March, I have tried really hard to use products that I had been neglecting. It was nice to just look into the make up I already have and to rediscover products that I loved in the past.

1. The Body Shop Vanilla Body Mist

This is a great body mist to use on the go as it, very obviously smells like vanilla and is not so expensive that you would worry about losing it if you are out. I find that very often, body sprays like these do not last that long and you need to respray quite often. In this case though, I found that it does actually last a pretty long time. It is well worth giving it a try!

2. MAC Tendertone in Deep Sigh

 Even though this does look pretty brownish, it is very sheer and actually looks really pretty. I only picked this up from my collection again because of the new collection that recently came out with tendertones. It smells lovely too, which, from what I know is a strawberry and kiwi scent.

3. NYX blush in Desert Rose

 This is a really pretty, dusky pink. It flatters my NW30 skin tone really well and makes my face look fresh and healthy, which is a look I definitely prefer on a day to day basis. The NYX blushes blend so well and are very pigmented. For the price, they are definitely worth trying out.

4. ELF Mineral lipstick in Barely Bitten

 The mineral lipsticks by ELF are very affordable at just £3.50 and the colour pay off on them is great. They don't dry out my lips and last a decent amount of time. I have mainly just been loving this shade. It isn't a bright red, it is much more toned down and looks very pretty and kind of rosy on the lips. With a simple eye look, this is gorgeous.

5. Soap&Glory Smoulder Kohl

 I used MAC's Smolder eye kohl for a long time and decided to try something different. When I saw that Soap&Glory came out with their own makeup line, I had to try this out. This liner is so pigmented and as it is waterproof, lasts on my water and lash line for a long time! It does not smudge or flake and it is only £5 which is half the price of a lot of pencil liners.

6. MAC 239 Shader brush

The size of this brush is perfect to pack on eyeshadow on to my eyelid. It fits perfectly and applies product evenly. I have tried quite a few brushes of this type but I find that this works for me the best annd I have been using it a lot in the month of march.

7. Z Palette and the eye shadows in it

 I have a mixture of MAC, Urban Decay, Stila, Yaby, Stars Makeup Haven and Ruby&Millie eyeshadows in this Z Palette. I have been using this a lot for the last month because it has pretty much every neutral eyeshadow that I like to use on a a daily basis. I love the idea of the Z palette and having all of the eyeshadows I want in the same place is a perfect way to avoid neglecting makeup.

Overall for last month, I definitely have been going back to my old favourites and using up what I already have. I feel like I have been wasting a lot less this way and still discovering how much I love certain products which I may not have really looked at previously.

What was your favourite product last month?

  3. Desert Rose looks like the perfect pink!

  4. awww great picks :) im in love with nyx dessert rose blushon.

  5. Just the fact that the Vanilla Body Mist lasts makes me want to try it. Whaa! I forgot all about NYX's Desert Rose - I've been meaning to pick it up. I used to really love barely bitten but lately it looks a bit...ruddy on me. How do you like the S&G compared to the MAC? I need to try a high end pencil liner. I think my favorite product of last month Dior Amber diamond highlighter. ...Which I haven't reviewed yet.

    1. I think the Soap&Glory liner is actually better than MAC. I used to swear by MAC's Smolder but Soap&Glory is just more pigmented, the lasting power is better too and its cheaper, I don't think I've touched my MAC liner more than once since I bought this!
