I have a nice selection for you in this month’s favourites, instead of the usual beauty products that I’ve loved during March I’ve also added in a couple of fashion and lifestyle things as well.
As there’s a lot to get through I’ll get straight on with it and give you the rundown of everything I’ve recently loved this month.
W7 Colour Me Nude Eye Colour Palette
It made my day when I found a good replacement for my beloved Urban Decay palette, but for a fraction of the price. I absolutely love this Colour Me Nude eyeshadow palette from W7, it comes with 12 rosey toned shades, including matte and shimmer and is perfect for both day and night. I found the eyeshadows to be highly pigmented and were easy to blend, I’m also pretty impressed at how long they last, as with some budget eyeshadows the colour fades after a few hours. The packaging is a good quality tin and looks more expensive than it is, a great bargain at only £5.99!
Milani Powder Blush in shade Blossomtime Rose
This Milani powder blush is a wonderful new addition to my makeup collection and all I can say is it’s gorgeous! The rose design and the beautiful rose gold packaging make it look so expensive. Blossomtime Rose is a peachy pink shade with a slightly golden highlighter to it. The powder is so soft and applies beautifully on my skin, either a lighter touch for a day time glow or something a bit bolder for an evening out. This beats any other blusher I have ever owned!
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Pillow Talk
A little bit of luxury and a special treat was needed for a night out with my friends, so I invested in a Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick. I chose the shade Pillow Talk so it would look just right with the darker eye look I’d gone for and I could also wear it anytime during the day. Yes, ok so it’s another nude and I probably own enough of those to get me through a world lipstick shortage, Pillow Talk is a rosey pinky brown shade which suits my skin and hair tone. It applies beautifully with a square shaped tip so it glides perfectly around the shape of your lips. The matte formula doesn’t make my lips feel dry, it’s also incredibly long lasting but to be honest I really wouldn’t mind having to touch this lipstick up in public with it’s gorgeous rose gold packaging.
Rose Gold Bangle
I hardly ever wear bracelets but saw this gorgeous rose gold one while I was browsing through lyliarose.com as they had a sale on at the time. I couldn’t resist using it to go with some of my spring outfits, it’s so pretty it would also look fabulous worn out in the evening without looking over the top. I love the small white diamante clasp, which adds some extra detail. The bangle feels sturdy but also looks dainty and feminine, I’ve just loved wearing it. I was amazed at the speed of the delivery, it arrived the day after I ordered it!
Boohoo Unicorn Pyjamas
In case you didn’t know, I am obsessed with unicorns and I finally own a pair of pyjamas with them all over! These are flippin amazing, they are made of silky satin material and just so comfortable to wear. I love them so much I almost want to stick on a pair of heels, pop on a blazer, grab a bag and wear them out, I’m sure I’d get some strange looks if I did! They feel so luxurious, especially slipping them on after a warm bath, I’ve not wanted to take them off, but obviously I had to so they could go in the wash.
Pixi Glow Tonic
This has to be my number one skincare favourite, of all time! The Pixi Glow Tonic is super gentle on my sensitive skin and I’ve been using this every evening after cleansing to remove any last traces of dirt and make up before using a serum. It’s definitely worth every penny, if you would like to read my full review you’ll find that here.
Barry M Matte Me Up Lip Kit
I was so excited to get hold of a Barry M Lip Kit, mine’s in the shade Runway, a gorgeous pinky red, it also comes in 2 other shades Go To Nude and Pose. I love everything about it, the shade, the texture and the price, £6.99 for a lip paint and lip liner, bargain! The lip paint applies well, stays on for ages and feels so lovely to wear, the lip liner is soft enough to out line your lips with colour but not to hard that you have too push down much that you almost stab your lips.
Beauty and The Beast
I couldn’t end my favourites post without mention my trip to the cinema to see Beauty and The Beast. This is one of my all time favourite animated Disney Films, so I was excited to see this version. To say I absolutely loved it is a slight understatement, I think I fell in love with all the characters even more, even Beast before he became the Beast (without giving any spoilers away!). I think the cast were fantastic, I love Emma Watson anyway but I think she does an amazing portrayal of Belle. The director and production team have done a fantastic job of bringing this much loved film to life once again. I could quite happily watch it all over again!
