March Beauty Favourites

I usually like to do my monthly favourites as a video but I wasn’t terribly happy with this months video and also didn’t to share my favourites too late so I thought I would instead share them as a blog post.

I know people say this every single month but I am shocked by just how quickly the year has been going, I can’t believe it’s May next month and then June. Crazy.

This month I have been loving the Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation which I review earlier this month (here). If you like to change over to a lighter foundation for the spring/summer this is a great, affordable foundation to go for. The coverage is still very buildable but it blends effortlessly into the skin, giving a natural but flawless finish.

I also stumbles across the new EcoTools Complexion Collection brushes brushes, if I’m honest I judged them by their cover and as they are a bright yellow wood with a teal ferrule I wasn’t expecting too much. However as all my other brushes were dirty I gave them a try and I haven’t looked back since. They really buff the product in with minimal effort and I think there is potential for it to become my favourite foundation brush. I do find the smallest concealer brush to be very scratchy but other than that they are excellent and very affordable.

My primer of choice has been the This Work In Transit Camera Close Up which is superior to any other primer I have tried as it is also a moisturiser and mask in one. As my skin is a little dehydrated I really feel it helps my makeup apply more smoothly but more than anything it makes it last all day long.

My favourite launch of the month is the Clinique Pop Lip + Primer, the colour range is vast, they are creamy and pigmented too. Beige Pop has been my chosen shade all month but I can see myself working my way through the colours and falling in love along the way.

On my nails this month I have had two pastel shades; Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in Eat My Dust and Nails Inc VB Bamboo White. They are very different price points with Nails Inc VB Bamboo White being quite pricey, that said it’s probably one of my favourite every colours, the quality is beautiful, it dries quickly and last longer than most. Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in Eat My Dust is far more affordable and is my go-to colour when I need something that will dry very quick. It’s a fun pastel blue which isn’t too in your face and although I don’t find it particularly long lasting it does have pigmentation and shine.

A new discovery is Bondi Sands Fake Tan Lotion, I’ve been going between the dark and light lotion this month (if I’m honest it’s because I have misplaced the dark one). It applies really well with no streaks and doesn’t take too long to dry, the colour isn’t quite the darkest but I just love that it fades very evenly whereas I find myself having to painfully scrub other tans off to avoid patchiness.

Looking forward to trying some new products in April, even some brighter colours.

    I really liked this foundation at first but I think the alcohol in it really dried my skin out 🙁
    I think I might need to pick up that EcoTools brush though, I thought it was Tarte from the picture! xxx

    That's one of my favorite foundations! Their lightest shade is just a smidge too dark for me at the moment, so I'm looking forward for summer time when I darken up a bit!

    I'm a huge fan of eco tools brushes and honestly haven't come across one I don't like. This one in particular looks like such a lovely shape. x

    I swear by the Bondi sands tan for light/medium skin. I never get streaks and love it so much. In a strange way I like the smell of the product too. Really want to the that This Works product!! xo
