Monthly Favourites: March

March was such a busy month for me, but also one of the best. I celebrated my 24th birthday, went to Iceland for my dad's 60th and went to Barcelona for work. Bearing that in mind, I was travelling a lot meaning trying out makeup wasn't really on my to-do list and therefore a lot of these products are in my Makeup Travel Bag blog post! 

Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess Eye Palette - When leaving my old job in January my boss really kindly got me this stunning palette as a leaving gift. At first glance I was worried these weren't warm enough tones for me like the Dolce Vita Palette, but I can't even tell you how often I've been using this palette. I did a full review on it here  so I won't go on too much about it, but this has been great to travel with minus the fact I may have cracked the mirror... as it gives me four eyeshadows I can use for daytime to nighttime looks. My favourite shade in the palette would have to be 'pop' as it's a stunning glittery golden bronze. 

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise 'Bette' - This cream eyeshadow easily had to go into my favourites because a) it was the eyeshadow base I wore for my birthday night-out makeup and b)  I took it everywhere I went travelling this month. I'm absolutely blown away by these cream shadow pots and I'm continuously tempted to treat myself to more! 

BodyShop 'Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder 03' - When my physicians formula bronzer smashed last month I actually felt a little bit of my heart break. Finding a bronzer has to be one of the hardest tasks for my skin tone, so naturally I took to Twitter and was recommended to pick this one up. I've been loving this bronzer and don't know why it doesn't get a lot of hype! The formula is really fine and easily blends out if you accidentally apply that little bit too much of it which I always do! The one thing about this product that makes me nervous is the packaging, it is really sleek which I love as the physicians formula one was garish and bulky, but I don't think it's very travel-safe!  

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick  'Bare Affair'  - I have been loving this barely there peach/nude lipstick this month. I've been trying to steer away from constantly using my Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lipstick because I'm getting very close to having to repurchase my 3rd one!  This is so creamy and lightweight of a formula and especially when I'm out and about so often and just don't have the time to constantly top-up! Highly recommend this lipstick for anyone looking for a new Spring nude! 

No7 Shimmer Palette 'Rose' - As the Bodyshop bronzer is totally matte I've been going in with a light dusting of this shimmer palette all over my face. My skin has been going through quite a temperamental dry patch time and therefore have been using any product that can give me that instant glow. I think No7 makeup is truly underrated and I need to go back to their counters because they always have great 3 for 2 offers on and their foundation matching tools are incredible! 

Let me know in the comments below what makeup products you've been loving this month!

  3. Wow, the Bette shade looks so insanely pretty!

  4. I've been a long time fan of the body shop honey bronzer. Of course I reckon I need to get shade 03 rather than my current 01 as it is a bit too natural for me. Physician's formula makes the best bronzers, I adore their butter bronzer (I need to get several back ups)

  5. The golden goddess eye palette is so pretty!

  6. I picked up Bette recently. Next to Jean, it's my fave cream eyeshadow x

  7. Charlotte Timberly is one of my favourite brands for makeup. She really knows how to bring beauty in my life lol

  8. I really want to pick up that Charlotte Tilbury palette, it looks stunning!
