March Beauty Favourites + Empties
Wednesday, 11 Apr 2018
Ladies, today I have my March Beauty Favourites to share with you, as well as a few Empties. I am so happy about how many products I managed to finish in March, it always feels like such an accomplishment!
Starting with this gorgeous fragrance from The Body Shop, The British Rose EDT. It smells light, floral and elegant, like a big bunch of fresh roses! I can’t get enough of it. I featured this and a few other rose products from The Body Shop in this post here.
Next up we have the *Clarins SOS Primer in Coral, which is a fairly new product to my makeup stash, but I love how it feels on my skin, and how it evens out my skintone. It also has a wonderful effect on my dark circles! I have swatches of this primer here.
Another favourite is this gorgeous MAC Padma Lakshmi Lipstick in Nude Fudge. It is a warm dark nude shade with a matte finish. I love how pigmented it is in one coat, and although it is matte, it doesn’t feel drying or uncomfortable on the lips. I have swatches of this, and a few other pieces from the MAC Padma Collection here.
Swatches from Top-Bottom:
The Catrice Healthy Look Mattifying Powder in Luminous Light is pretty old, I don’t even think it is available anymore. It is a combination of four shades, designed to give you a fresh and healthy complexion, and although it is slightly mattifying, it doesn’t make you look flat. It also doesn’t leave a grey ashy look, or crease under the eyes, but rather brightens the area, which is great for my dark circles.
Lastly we have the Physician’s Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Spotless Foundation SPF 15. This is possibly one of the best foundations I have ever tried. Although it is light and weightless, and practically fuses with your skin, it still manages to provide some serious coverage without looking heavy. It comes with a dropper which is surprisingly mess-free, and perfect for the runny consistency. Once dried the foundation has a silky, satin finish that feels so natural on the skin. The foundation also comes with a brush which unfortunately is way too small to apply foundation with, but works well for cream blush and highlighter.
And now for the Empties:
The Body Shop Glazed Apple Hand Cream- I love the scent of this, but it wasn’t as hydrating as I would like for a hand cream.
*Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream– Love love love this, it is definitely something I would repurchase.
Stila Stay All Day Precision Glide Brow Pencil in Black- I have already repurchased this, I love it so much!
Lush Whoosh Shower Jelly– I love the refreshing citrus scent, but Twilight is definitely my Lush pick.
Noreva Micellar Lotion– Soothing and calming, but not something I would repurchase, as it is quite expensive.
Aveeno Skin Relief Nourishing Lotion– I only just bought this recently and loved it so much it is already finished, a definite repurchase.
Dr. Sole Intensive Moisture Foot Butter- A hydrating, minty foot butter that does a good job.
Thanks for reading Ladies, what were your favourites in March?
