March Favourites 2016


March has been a great month with the bonus extra long weekend and the UK has been experiencing some lovely sunny days recently so I have pre-maturely sipping on Pimm's while admiring the sunny whether from my living room as it is not quite warm enough to sit outside. Small talk aside I have been loving three incredible products this month. A few posts ago you would of read my review on the Maybelline Super Stay Nail Polish in Rose Poudre and Second Skin. I have fallen in love with the shade Rose Poudre because it is a classy girly pink that just makes people stare at your nails and ask "what colour are you wearing?". The lasting power is just incredible as it really doesn't chip for a whole week. I have been eyeing up all the other shades so you will be seeing this line around on my blog a lot in the next few months.

I did have a little skin break out earlier on this month and my L'Oreal Infalliable Matte Foundation really came to the rescue. It is really high in coverage so teamed with smallest amount of concealer my pesky spots were fully erased. The foundation is great as it doesn't cake, break up or slide around. This might be too much information but when I get spots they tend to be shiny and nothing will stick to them however because this foundation is matte it really did stick and conceal the shininess. I did apply primer before the foundation just to make sure everything was locking into place but I think you can get away without a primer and it will still last all day. I also love that when my spots have dried out I can continue to use this foundation without it clinging onto the dry skin (again that may have been too much information but I am just keeping it real!). The L'Oreal Infalliable Matte Foundation has over taken many of my high end foundations and if you were to put this on my skin without telling me what it was I would of thought it was the Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation (old formula)- without the weird smell so it really is that good!

I haven't previously talked about the The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver on my blog but I have been wearing this all month underneath my make up. I have found (aside my break outs) that my skin has been really flat and almost grey in colour (I'm assuming it is due to many months without any sunlight!). My husband was in The Body Shop picking up his skin care and all their products were 3 for 2 so I decided to try this out as it aims to give instant radiance to the skin. I haven't heard anyone talk about this so I didn't have any expectations for it but I was very presently surprised. When smoothing the clear cream over my face it leaves it so silky soft, almost like a baby skin finish. It is nothing I have experienced before. It smells like oranges which I don't particularly like as I hate orange scented things but it isn't over whelming and it does go away very quickly once applied so I can handle it. When I look at my skin without make up on I can see my skin looks a lot more radiant. Beneath my foundation it doesn't turn my matte foundation dewy or oily but rather just a "lit from within" it is very subtle but it has just given my skin that little lift that it needed.

I hope you have all had a lovely month and let me know what your favourite products were this month!
