It’s time for another favourites post! I have quite a few favourites to share, I’ve just been loving so many products this month it was hard to narrow it down to just a few, so I’ve broken it down into two posts. Today we will cover all my makeup favourites for the month of March, and on Wednesday we will do Skin Care.
While some of these are recently release products, a lot of these have been out for a while, and I’m just late to the party on how awesome they are.
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - This is an absolutely gorgeous palette. It contains 5 matte shades and 1 slightly shimmery shade. It’s just the perfect palette for almost anything! The shadows are super pigmented and blendable, and I’ve used it every day since I got it. The Naked 2 shade (4th from the left) is just the perfect crease shade for me.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso – I’d heard a ton about this blush, and how much people loved it but hadn’t really given it much of a chance. Every time I saw it in the package, it looked super shimmery, which I hate. I’m so glad I finally decided to give it a shot! This is such a beautiful peach blush, and really makes my face light up. I like that you can build the intensity from barely their to quite bold. Also, the shimmer you see in the package translates to a slight highlight on the face.
Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 02 - This is definitely my favourite product this month! I’m seriously loving this bronzer! It’s the perfect shade for my fair skin tone. It adds warmth to my face without any shimmer ( I really dislike shimmer!). The colour is slightly lighter than my NARS Laguna bronzer, so I find it great for this time of year when I’m white as a ghost.
L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Waterproof Mascara – This is a rediscovery for me. I’m always on the hunt for a waterproof mascara that won’t smudge from my oily eyelids (only part of my face that’s actually oily!), and this one is the best. It just stays in place all day, doesn’t budge and washes off with my cleansing oil. It adds length and volume, without clumping. Will always repurchase.
BareMinerals Stroke of Light in 01 - This is billed as an under eye brightener, though I’ve been using it mostly as a highlighter. It does an amazing job, add a subtle highlight to my face without looking over the top or too glittery. I also tend to use it over my under eye concealer if I’m looking to add a little extra brightness.
So there you have part 1 of my March 2014 Favourites. Check back on Wednesday for a look at the Skin Care products I’ve been loving!
