Can you believe we are already a quarter of the way through 2016?! I can’t believe it, it feels like only yesterday we were in 2009. WHEN DID WE ALL GET SO OLD?!
I found it really difficult to pin down my monthly favourites this month because I’ve been all over the place with what I’ve been loving. I’ve managed to pin down a few things though, so without further ado, let’s chat favourites.
Makeup-wise I’ve been keeping things simple, so I only have three things to tell you about. Firstly, I’ve written a full review of the Innisfree Water Glow Cushion Foundation, so I won’t chat too much about that. I’ll just say that as far as lightweight bases go, this might be my favourite.
Two lip products I wanted to mention, both that have been living in my handbag this month, and both from Clarins! I’ve been wearing the Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Tea Rose, and the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 07 for most of the month. Tea Rose is a beautiful, everyday pinky nude, in a really comfortable formula, whilst the Lip Perfector in 07 is my favourite shade from the range. I’ve always liked the formula of the Natural Lip Perfectors but never found the colours quite right for me – until the Spring collection dropped! I haven’t tried a lot from Clarins but I do keep coming back to their lip products!
Two other beauty mentions, firstly I got a new bottle of my Grown Alchemist Gentle Gel Facial Cleanser for my birthday and I’ve been reminded how much I love this stuff. If you’re looking for a super gentle cleanser to follow up your makeup remover then look no further!
After recolouring my hair at the beginning of the month, I picked up a new intensive conditioner to keep my locks smooth and shiny. Despite not being blonde, I ended up picking up the Tigi Bed Head Dumb Blonde Reconstructor for Chemically Treated Hair, and I’ve been really enjoying it. It’s intense and leaves my hair feeling soft and healthy, without weighing it down or making it feel greasy.
Two fashion favourites I wanted to mention, the first is this gorgeous necklace from Cos. My mum picked this up for me whilst we were out shopping a few months back and put it away for my birthday, and I’d actually forgotten about it until I unwrapped it! I love how long and weighty it is, it’s the perfect piece to go with my simple, monochrome wardrobe.
I also picked up a new pair of Nike Free Runs this month – I’ve been on the look out for months for a new black pair and finally found these in the Nike Outlet. They were a steal at £45 and are basically the only shoes I’ve worn this month!
And lastly, a shoutout for the fantastic programming on the BBC this month. I don’t watch a lot of TV but I’ve been hooked on both Thirteen and American Crime Story. If you like gritty crime stuff, I’d highly recommend checking both shows out!
