March Favourites

So it's the first of April and that can only mean one thing... Monthly Favourites time!
This month for me has been all about getting a more Spring appropriate, fresh-faced look as the sun's started to show itself a little more. I've been reaching for products with a more dewy affect and replaced my powder blush with a cream. Below is a list of my most reached for products for the month of March.




Collection Eyes Uncovered Pallet in Nude 
I picked this up a few weeks ago and have been pairing it with my Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics a lot this month. In fact I actually wrote a blog post comparing the two right here. Whilst it's fine to chose one or the other, I've been loving them together, going with the Collection shimmery shades over the lid and the matte Urban Decay colours in the crease.

Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me
Staying with our "fresh" theme, I've loved going back to that just-bitten look and keeping things less harsh on the lips. This tinted balm is soft and glossy looking but provides a real pop of bright redish pink that I think suits me quite well. I've worn it so often this month and I just love how easy it is.

Rimmel Match Perfection
I mentioned this beauty in My Complete Foundation Collection post, and it even got a sterling ten out of ten rating! This foundation can give skin that's still a bit dried out from Winter that radiance that can be lacking in colder weather; it's great at hiding texture and rough patches on the skin.

Rimmel Stay Blushed
As it's been turning more sunny, (hooray for the clocks going forward!) I've been loving that fresh faced look and have been opting for as many cream products as possible. I love the Rimmel Stay Blushed formulas as they blend so well and end up looking like a real blush from within on the cheeks.

Bath & Body Works Candle in Mahogany Teakwood
My lovely friend Rachel (hey Rach!) brought me this back from her trip to America earlier this month and I've been burning it every evening. Mahogany Teakwood has been a love of mine since 2013 when I first visited Bath & Body Works in Florida. I was so sad when it ran out and I knew it couldn't get it again until I (or fab friends of mine) went over to the states! It smells exactly like an Abercrombie & Fitch store.

Let me know what you've been loving below, especially if you have any cream formula products that you can't live without... I can see myself getting really into them for summer! You can check out last months favourites here, and don't forget to come back next month to see what I'll obsess over for the month of April!
