March Favourites...



Well I'm super late with this post aren't I? Where has the first 12 days of April gone already? I seriously don't know where the days are going, before I know it, it will be July and little miss will be here, now that's a scary thought! So how I even had the time to even discover any favourites last month, I'm not so sure but these are the products that I have been using on a daily basis and loving throughout the last month...

After seeing so many people rave about the makeup revolution palettes and seeing some great makeup looks created with them, I had to try one for myself. I chose the Iconic Pro 1 Palette as I had already been lusting after the Lorac Pro Palettes and this looked like an amazing dupe. After using this almost daily since I received it, I have well and truly fallen for this palette. The colours are so versatile, the formula so blendable and the pigmentation is outstanding, if you haven't tried this palette already, what are you waiting for?!

Benefit High Brow £16.50

This is a product that I have rediscovered this month, with spring already upon us, I have started bringing the highlighters back out to help create a healthy looking glow to my oh so pale skin. Benefit's High Brow helps to lift your brows and achieve that highly defined brow effect when blended under your brow arch and a little above. I love how neat and bright this makes my brows look and I'm already lusting after the High Brow Glow too.

Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation in Ivory £5.99

This is a foundation that I have heard so many mixed reviews about and I think it's one of those that you will either love or hate, personally I love it! I love how soft and lightweight this foundation feels on the skin, yet how buildable the coverage is. I find that applying one layer of foundation and then adding a touch more over any spots or redness gives me exactly the coverage I need. I do use  powder over this and find that mid-afternoon I need to touch up my powder but overall this has pretty impressive staying power! Admittedly the shade range is pretty pants, I chose the lightest shade and luckily it matches my skin tone perfectly, 

Maybelline Colorsensational Elixir Lip in Blush Essence £6.99

I picked this up purely because I needed an extra item in the boots 3 for 2 offer but I wasn't expecting anything amazing, so I was pleasantly surprised to find just how much I love it. this lightweight gloss feels so smooth when you apply it thanks to the velvety application wand, if it didn't make me look strange, I could just sit and apply this all day! My lips are often very dry and I love when I wear this, there are no signs of flaking and it keeps my lips so moisturised and smooth. My favourite aspect of this product however is the colour! This gorgeous rose toned pinks compliments my skin tone so well and for some reason just seems to brighten up my face. I've never been a gloss kinda girl but this gloss has completely won me over!

Have you tried any of these products?

Love
