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!

March Beauty Favourites

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.

      I don’t think we get them here yet, we have such a limited range, but I am hoping if it does well they will expand! I will keep an eye out! Thanks!

  20. Alice Spake says:

    I’ve just re-discovered The Body Shop and I have a huge list of products I want to try. I really like the look of the Oils of Life range

    Alice xx

    1. admin says:

      That range is amazing, and they have a new addition which is the balm cleanser, it is lovely. I will have a review up on the full range in the next few weeks.

  21. Rosie says:

    I literally love anything Aveeno or Clarins so I’m not surprised these are on your empties list!

  22. Lauren says:

    Ooh some great faves! I am intrigued to try the SOS primer. I have never tried anything from Clarins before x

    1. admin says:

      The primer is lovely! And they have one for most concerns, there is more detail in my post.

  23. I actually find a lot of TBS hand creams aren’t hydrating enough. The only one that really does feel enough for me is the almond milk and honey one!
    Lovely post!

    1. admin says:

      Yip, me too! The Body Butters for Dry SKin are fine, and also the Hemp Hand Protector. I haven’t tried the Almond one yet.

    Much love, Caitylis x x

    1. admin says:

      Yep they smell so expensive too!

  27. I swear by Aveeno, it’s amazing on my skin too! x

    1. admin says:

      I can’t believe how great it is!

  28. Caitylis says:

    I really want to start doing some monthly favourites but I usually like the same things for months and months on end! I like to stick to what I know! These pieces sound wonderful though!
    Much love, Caitylis x x

    1. admin says:

      Haha, I try to switch my stuff around so that I use up my products, and it makes it exciting to find old products I love!
