Monthly Favourites: March

March was definitely a fab month. I celebrated my 23rd birthday (probably a little too much), went on long weekend away to Prague and have been massively busy with work. Although saying that, I've still managed to get through quite a through products and found some old favourites and a couple of new bits that I couldn't stop using in March. 

We also managed to finally step straight into Spring for the first time which meant I finally got to bring out a couple more bright and peachy products in my monthly favourites. Of course stepping into Spring wouldn't be complete without my all time favourite blush Milani Baked Blush 'Luminoso' which is the most stunning peach glow blusher in the history of blushers. I'm so surprised that I haven't managed to hit pan on this product yet because I think it's a blusher that would suit so many skin tones, and is great for those who are extremely fair and don't like a pink toned blush.

Next on my list would have to be the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint 'Acai Smoothie'. Usually I stick to nude and pink polishes, but this one has to be an exception. I'm obsessed with this dark lilac shade which is so feminine and brings a little pop of colour to your everyday look. Unfortunately I'm not totally in love with the formula just the colour of this polish. The wear time isn't fab at all even after a bottom and top coat but I'm just too obsessed with the colour - fingers crossed Barry M sort that out soon! 

The Rimmel Kate Moss Sculpting Palette 'Coral Glow 002' has been an absolute live saver when it comes to all my work events this month. This is the perfect on-the-go palette which I constantly keep in my handbag for moments when we have work events or after work drinks, just so I can top off my makeup and try and make myself look a little bit more life-like. I'm obsessed with the colour of the blush, and although the highlighter is a little chalky, it works good-enough for a quick top-off. 

Lastly I'm sure you've noticed the bajillion blog posts on my new Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit 'Candy K'  here and here and I have so say I've been wearing this non-stop. Now although I did write that the Barry M lip kit is definitely on the same level as the Kylie one formula wise, I'm just loving the shade Candy K a bit more this time of the year as it's a beautiful dusty mauve pink perfect for swiftly moving to Spring. I love the formula and the lip liner is just so utterly creamy and pigmented. 

So there we have it, my monthly favourites! Can you believe we've entered April?! Where is the year going, I swear it's going by more quickly than 2016 - scary thoughts. Let me know what one product you've been loving this month in the comments below! 


  1. You're so right about Luminoso, it suits just about everyone! The blush in the Kate Moss trio looks really similar x
