March Favourites




As it is the end of March (already?) it is time for my March Favourites! I didn't do a Favourites for last month, so a few of these things are also favourites from last month as well.

Beauty

A couple of weeks ago I picked up a new Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in the lightest shade, I used to have Shade 2 but I realised that it was a bit too dark for me. So now that I have it in the correct shade for me, I've been using it a lot more. You have probably heard lots about this concealer, but it is very affordable and is very high coverage.

In my Top Pink Products for Spring post, I mentioned the Topshop Cream Blush in Flush. As this blush is so appropiate for spring, I have been using it a lot recently seeing as it is now officially spring. I have a post all about it here.

A new favourite of mine is the L'Oreal Colour Riche Eyeliner in 120 Immaculate Snow. This white eyeliner is perfect to put on your water line to brighten up the eyes. It is so creamy and pigmented which makes it so easy to apply.

I have re-fallen in love with the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. I used to use it a lot for blush, but throughout this month I have used it for applying foundation or concealer. It blends it in so smoothly and evenly and doesn't apply the foundation too heavilly. It leaves the skin feeling like skin which I really like as sometimes different brushes can make the foundation feel heavy on the skin, but this brush doesn't do that.

I think I've saved the best till last. It is my MAC Lipstick in Patisserie. I have had this lipstick since last summer and although I don't wear it very often, this month I have used it a bit more than usual because it is such a pretty shade! It is a lustre finish so it does apply a bit more sheer but it leaves a nice glossy finish. Patisserie is the perfect everyday nude, it is basically a pinky brown shade but looks so natural!

Non-Beauty

I am going to see Insurgent in the cinema in a few days, so I wanted to read the book before I watched the film. So you may have guessed that the Insurgent Book is my favourite for this month, although I haven't actually finished it yet, it is very good so far!

  6. The Topshop cream blushers are such good quality and relatively inexpensive, I have Head over Heels and love it, might have to add Flush to my stash if it's still available.
