March Favourites

Hi beauts! As the title may suggest I'm going to be talking you through my beauty favourites for the month of March. I haven't really accumulated anything new this month but I've definitely rediscovered a few old favourites, and since I haven't done many favourites on this blog, I thought I'd talk you through them anyway!

Kiko Precision Lip Pencil in 300
I featured this in my mini haul a few weeks back, and I can safely say it has already been well loved! It's the perfect liner for nearly all nude lipsticks, I'd say. It glides on easily and is very pigmented, there are certain looks where I want the liner to be visible, so I love this quality in the pencil. I've been using it non stop with anything from drugstore to MAC lipsticks, and it really is the perfect match! I cannot speak highly enough of this product, and will definitely have to pick up a few more shades. 

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in 725 Tantelizing Taupe
Oh shock, a nude lipstick. I'm serious though, nude obsession is something else at the moment! Anyway, this is a very light muted nude, and with my pale complexion, it really works. The only thing with this one is you do have to almost build it up, but the finish is lovely and you do get a lovely colour out of the product. It's very much my everyday go to at the moment, and I love it!

Bourjois Smokey Eyes Trio
This beauty was actually part of a free gift box I got with a Bourjois purchase, so I didn't really pay anything for it, and for the quality of this that is amazing! It's perfect for the staple black smokey eye, I use this primarily for my nights out where I want a deeper smoke to my shadow. The colours blend really well together and are really pigmented as well, grade A product. 

Barry M Super Chic Eyeshadow Palette
This was a really old purchase actually, way back before Christmas! But I've recently rediscovered this one and I'm so glad I have! It's shades are all shimmery and are absolutely stunning, my everyday eye look is normally a glittery nude/brown smokey eye at the moment, and this palette really helps me to achieve that. The palette includes an eyeshadow primer as well, which was great when I first bought the palette, but after about 3 uses the quality really deteriorated and was basically useless, that's the only downside but I have my MAC paint pots for bases anyway, so I'm not too bothered about that, and the palette is a dream! 

Bourjois Volume Max Holidays Mascara
This is another product I received in the free Bourjois gift box, and this gift box was a complete dream to be given for free. This mascara has a double domed applicator which allows it to catch all the eyelashes and really give them volume, I sometimes pair this with my Rimmel Lash Accelorator Endless when I want some separation too, mainly because I hate wearing falsies and this duo gives the illusion of false lashes, but when it's on it's own it does a great job of volumising my lashes.

Maybelline Matte Maker Mattifying Powder
This is a new purchase actually, I'm never one for bothering with face powders, quite a lot of the time I just get the cheapest option, but I picked this one up in a Maybelline 3 for 2 offer and didn't really expect it to be much better than any of my previous powders, but the way this mattifies my face is really something else! It's a perfect colour match and just keeps my face matte for the entire day, I don't even have to reapply it much at all, and that's all I can want from a face powder!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
And another rediscovery, since purchasing my MAC pro longwear concealer I've barely reached for this, but I've been wanting a more natural look recently as I'm in rehearsals 9-5 most days, I've been reaching for this one a lot more, and I've fallen back in love with it. It may not counteract my dark circles completely, but for blemishes and colour correction, it really does the job for me. 

That's everything I've got for the month of March guys! Please check back for more posts from me soon.

    1. The Kiko lip pencils are stunning! Ahaa it is definitely a love hate thing, depends on our mood I guess!


  4. Great favourites, that lip liner and lipstick look gorge. Intrigued by that Barry M palette too!


    1. It's got such gorgeous shimmery shades in it! And I'm pretty sure it was only about £6!


  5. I use the wake me up concealer as well,it is good for a more natural look!

  6. Lip products have to be one of my favourite make-up items so I'm intrigued to give the Kiko Precision Lip Pencil a go, especially as it's perfect for nude lipsticks :) X


    1. Oh you really should! It really is the perfect nude liner :)


  7. I'm really tempted by the Wake Me Up Concealer, I feel like the Collection one isn't really working for me any more.
