(A Late) March Favourites


Sorry for the lack of posts recently, my life has pretty much been revision, revision, revision, work, revision, revision etc. I also know it's a bit late but hey, better late than never! So here are some of the products I loved using in March. 

March was the month of skincare for me, I didn't really wear foundation/cc cream very often so I found the way to make my skin look as healthy as possible was using the Una Brennan Clay Mask twice/three times per week. This is really cooling when you first apply it to the skin and dries so you can't move your face much in about 10/15mins (although I'm often found sporting it for the whole of the #bbloggers sunday chat!). I've found this has really cleared up some of my breakouts and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. Full review to come soon! 

Secondly I've been loving The Body Shop Vitamin E Serum-in-Oil. I've had this for a while now and absolutely love it! What I tend to do is mix three drops in with a blob of moisturiser and rub into my face right before bed. It's lightweight, it doesn't smell funky and you wake up with a glowing complexion. A winner in my books! Nina by Nina Ricci has been my March fragrance, the bottle is adorable and the scent is fruity, mainly apple and sweet so perfect for spring. 

Finally on to makeup, my MAC Eyeshadows in Brule and Sable have been gracing my lids. Brule as usual being my all time favourite brow bone highlight, subtle, matte and also a great all over the lid colour to pair with a statement liner and red lip. Sable I got when I was on holiday last summer and haven't used it too much but it is so easy to sweep all over the lids for a quick simple but pretty smokey/everyday eye. Got many compliments when I wore this too. And last but not least Barry M's Gelly Shine Polish in Blue Grape has been the highlight of my nail choices last month. Opaque in two coats and an amazing cobalt blue colour for spring, again many compliments followed my wearing of this! 

What've you been loving in March or this month so far?

  2. The MAC eye shadows look lovely, I've just started getting into them and I'm so impressed with the pigmentation and how bendable they are. Really interested in getting some more, and these look like great brow bone colours!

  3. Brule looks like a nice shade as a subtle highlight for sure! I'll definitely have to swatch it next time I go to MAC. xx

  5. Lovely products pics! I know that feeling of revision overload, luckily for the past week and a bit I've been on holidays so I've had a bit of a rest before diving straight back in again! I've been hearing a lot of good things about that Serum-in-oil and is seems interesting!

  14. The Super Facialist mask is one of the skincare products I always repurchase! I adore the shade of the Barry M polish you've picked out too, I have a pastel blue gelly polish and I love the formula. I loved Lush's No Drought dry shampoo this month, a hair game changer for sure! x
