March Favourites

Sunday 9 April 2017

A new month has rolled around, so of course that calls for another monthly favourites post right? Pretty much all of these products are new to me except one. Which it's only right I share my thoughts on my new faves! I try and keep these mainly beauty related but I'm really good a chucking something in there each month that isn't remotely beauty but deserves the praise. And yes, I will soon realise I need to stop buying new shit all the time, maybe.

I'm sure you can probably spot some well loved products here that I'm really late jumping on the band wagon, and a couple of newbies to the market too. So let's dive straight in!

• Urban Decay - All Nighter setting spray I have seen people raving about this for so long, but I just never picked it up. But finally I did, mainly because I'm doing my own make up for my friends wedding next week so I felt I really needed the staying power. So far I'm more impressed when I dampen an eyeshadow brush with it to apply, because that trick works wonders with eyeshadows. But keeping your make up in place all day? Hmm. I'm going to keep at it though, I'm sure I'll fall completely in love with it soon

• GLAMGLOW - * Supermud clearing treatment Also another product I've seen everywhere but hadn't tried yet. But luckily for me I was kindly sent a little sample tube to try out. As soon as the mask is on your skin you can feel it working. My skin felt super soft and clean. You instantly can see a difference and now I'm trying to stop myself from buying each mask, in the mean time, I'll definitely be picking one up.

• Benefit Cosmetics - Goof Proof brow pencil I do not have fleeky brows because I over plucked in my teens and I feel like a dick if I over draw them, so I only do it ever so slightly. I popped to my local Benefit counter for brow help and I was taken through the whole range and came away with Goof Proof, which I love! I can shape and slightly over draw and it look completely natural. And the perfect colour match too!

• Benefit Cosmetics - Roller Lash Mascara This is the one product in this that I've owned before. I am so picky with mascaras as I have long lashes, so if it's too wet they stick, clump and I end up with mascara marks just below my brows, not ideal. But Roller Lash is just perfect for me! It separates all my lashes, lifts and curls. It even stays all day long, even on me, the girl that always plays with her lashes through the day.

• PIXI + Aspynovard - Glow-y Powder in London Lustre I won't lie, I shot gunned this from my sisters collection. And my god am I happy she gave it up to me. All the glow is happening on my face right now. It's so pigmented and glow-y and wonderful. I need more PIXI products in my life ASAP.

• Johnny Loves Rosie - Zodiac Necklace This is my favourite piece of jewellery at the moment. All the Zodiac necklaces are so lovely and I especially love my Sagittarius one. So dainty and cute, all of them are. I definitely need to make another purchase soon as Johnny Loves Rosie have some beautiful pieces.

• L'Oreal - Fine Flowers Cleansing Wipes I know, face wipes! But the Fine Flowers collection caught my eye. I never use face wipes because my skin is so overly sensitive it normally comes out sore and red immediately after using one. But as I saw the wipes came in two versions, Dry/Sensitive as well as Normal/Combination, obviously the sensitive was my choice. I haven't had an issue with them at all, so soft and my skin actually feels clean and refreshed after. I'm using these along with the rest of the Fine Flowers collection. So watch out for that post!

So there we have it, that's my March favourites. Anything in there you've tried?

  2. Ohhhhhhhhhhh Em I want to add more to my wishlist now! I love the sound of these wipes when you're in a rush, as I use Simple as they're amazing for sensitive skin but I find them over expensive for £4 a packet EACH as I went through them so quickly. I've been using the Glamglow face mask and I'm loving it too! Fab read <3

    1. I'm sorryyy! I didn't get on with simple, my skin hates it for some reason x

  3. The PIXI highlighters are so lovely, I've actually been choosing to use mine over my Becca highlighter recently.

  4. I love the Urban Decay all nighter setting spray so much! I hope you get along with it in the end, I found that I didn't notice it working as much until I stopped using it when it ran out which was so annoying. I'm also loving the Fine Flowers range but the face wipes are the only thing I didn't pick up! I'm kind of regretting it now but at the same time don't use wipes much anyway. I really want to try that glamglow mask too but I also need to stop buying new face masks! Haha, great post as always lovely
