MARCH BEAUTY FAVOURITES







Hello lovelies, today I have for you my March favourites most of them are quite new purchases but I have been using them non stop lately.

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil - After trying out the Body Shop's Camomile cleansing balm I instantly fell in love with it, it made my skin feel super clean and nourished but I am a big fan of oils for quickness, so when I saw this on a whim whilst shopping a few weeks back I knew I had to pick it up. I have never looked back since! I always double cleanse on an evening and I find this the most sufficient and speedy for getting my make up off, even the most stubborn of mascaras and pigmented lippys. It doesn't leave a horrible residue on my face either and just leaves it feeling really soft and I have noticed my skin clearing up since using this product so win win, if like me when your tired you really don't fancy taking all your slap off after a hard day you really do need this in your life, it will literally take two minutes to get your make up off with a hot muslin cloth and your skin will love you for it afterwards. 

The Body Shop Shea Beautifying Oil - Again for quickness (lazy bones) I have been loving oils especially now I only have 5 weeks to pop it seems like sure a chore to rub lotion everywhere, which is also difficult as well as time consuming I'll have you know, an oil is just so much easier! I could even put a spritzer in the bottle and spray myself with the oil but I don't, I just dab it in to all the areas I need and rub it in, not like most oils being slimy and slow to sink into the skin this oil sinks in beautifully and fast so you can pop your clothes or pjs on straight away afterwards. It smells beautiful and I have actually noticed that no extra stretch marks have been appearing since using this oil! 

Max Factor Skin Luminizer Foundation in Light Ivory - I was really curious looking at this in boots a couple of weeks ago so what did I do like any other normal beauty blogger would do? I bought it to trial of-course! I am so glad I did, I didn't even read reviews before this purchase I just went for it, risky and brave but well worth it! I find it hard to get a foundation to completely match my skin and this does so wonderfully, I actually have this on as shown in the picture above. It feels so light weight on the skin like you have nothing on yet the coverage is amazing, I would say it is medium to full but you could have it as sheer as you like or build it to the coverage you like. It really does make my skin look radiant and glowy but surprisingly is quite a matte finish to the skin but it feels like velvet on my skin, it has tiny gold particles that I guess give it the radiant factor and it lasts me through out the day.  I love the pump that comes with it which makes it easier to control how much you need, the shade Light Ivory I think would be great for Mac users of a 15 like me, I use Mac studio fix in NC15 and this is a perfect match for my skin tone, I love this so much at the minute it is so light on the skin, it almost feels like a BB cream so is great for spring/summer.

Mac Mineralize Blusher in Dainty - If you read my post yesterday on my Mac makeover and mini haul I had a few weeks back I fell in love with this as soon as the make up artist applied this to my cheeks! I was never someone really into blushers at all I would be happy with a cheap palette as I tend to like cream blushers more but this is so beautiful. The perfect pink to give you glowy cheeks with a hint of colour, you could have this quite sheer as I have pictured above or build it to be very pigmented depending on the finish you like. It is super soft and lasts all day without needing to top it up. 

Mac Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup - Again like the blusher I got this at the same time as my make over and I honestly haven't put it down since! Usually with my higher end lipsticks I like to use them but not too much as it makes me want to cry repurchasing a lipstick over £15 especially as I like to try different shades out all the time, I feel like this will be a forever repurchase! Watch out bank balance, it is the perfect nude with a subtle pinkness to it. It is super pretty and gives a gorgeous sheen to the lips without being over glossy and lasts a good 4-5 hours even longer if you wear a lip liner underneath. I don't know how I've managed in my life without this shade before, call me dramatic but once you finally swatch it and try it on your lips you will see what I mean! 

Stilla In The Light Palette shades Kitten, Bliss & Sunset - I have loved this palette overall but these three shades more specifically, I non stop wear Kitten alone which is odd as I never tend to go near shimmer shadows but I am all about the glow this spring! I am just wearing that shade above in the picture, it is perfect for under my brow bone when I am doing a smokey eye look or all over the lid to brighten them up, Bliss is usually the base shadow I tend to put all over my lid then I put Sunset in the crease to spice things up a little. All three are such stunning shades and very pigmented, for a day look I have even been using the darkest matte brown in the palette 'Sandstone' for eyeliner using a slanted make up brush to apply and it lasts all day. I would highly recommend adding this palette to your collection it has a great range of neutral shades perfect for day or night looks.
