It’s March favourites time already?! I can’t believe we are already a quarter of the way through 2013, I’m getting old!
As ever, this is just the beauty favourites, and there will be a non-beauty favourites post this week! I’m not sure when yet, seeing as they’re a bit weird this month and I’m having some photography based issues! They will be here though!
First thing I wanted to mention was my Seaweed Clarifying Toner from The Body Shop. I’ve said before that my skin tends to break out when I go from London to Bournemouth (or vice versa), due to the change in water. This has totally saved my skin this month, and got rid of the breakout at the first sign! It’s also super refreshing, and lasts for ages, I’ve had this since Christmas and I’ve used barely anything.
I couldn’t do my favourites this month without mentioning THAT NARS palette. It’s a totally unnecessary purchase, it is just a neutrals palette, if you have any of the UD palettes or an MUA dupe or really any kind of neutrals palette, you don’t need this. But the shadow quality is incredible, and the colours are beautiful, you can read my full review here.
I promise I will get round to doing a review of this soon! I got YSL’s Shocking Volume mascara for my birthday and it’s love. This is literally the best mascara I have ever used, and I urge you all to go out and buy it.
Now I know the Bepanthen is a bit of a weird one, don’t worry, I don’t have nappy rash. This is great for cuts, scrapes, grazes, anything. I used this to heal a scrape on the back of my leg, and a graze on my arm. It’s not got anything crazy in it, it just seals the area and helps put moisture back in. And it’s £2.50. Bargain.
I’m going crazy for Lipcote right now, I just can’t believe how well it works! This seals my lipstick in all day, lip prints on glasses and smudged lip kisses are now a thing of the past!
Lush’s A Million Kisses lip tint has become my new handbag favourite. It’s great for adding a bit of colour to your lips, but you can use it lightly on your cheeks too, and you know how much I enjoy a multipurpose product. It smells amazing, and a little really does go a long way with this product, so it will last for forever!
I was recommended Max Factor’s Facefinity by the lovely Sophie over at sophieetc.com, and it’s love. It claims to be a three in one foundation, priming and concealing as well as providing coverage, and for me, it does just that. It’s pretty high coverage, and I do still use a little under eye concealer with it, but it stays put all day, doesn’t dry your skin out, but doesn’t need to be topped with powder. This is a great foundation, and it’s under £10. Perfect!
So there you have it, this months favourites, what are yours?
