March Favourites.

I know, I know I'm late doing this post again! Is it just me or are these months flying by? Anyway, it's time for my monthly favourites once again! I've been pretty boring this month and not really added anything new to my routine so these are things I may have talked about a little bit before but I've set myself a little challenge not to miss any monthly favourites out this year.
Okay, so first up we have Bourjois 10 hour sleep effect foundation. I've had this since early last summer but have recently been reminded of how much I love it when Muhsine from Bubblegarm did a review of it. This isn't a high coverage foundation at all but with a decent concealer I find that I can make this work despite not having perfect skin. I love everything about this even down to it's fruity scent; it's easy to work with, takes seconds to apply and feels really light on the skin. I think this is going to be one of the foundations I use all through the summer and will keep repurchasing.

Since I mentioned concealers a second ago I'll move on to my favourites at the moment. I really like Benefit Erase Paste & Benefit Boi-ing for different things. The Erase Paste does a decent job of brightening the under eye area but the trick for me is to not apply too much so that it settles into any lines and when warmed up before application Boi-ing covers any blemishes or redness I have really easily. For me these work best when I apply them with my fingers.

Another favourite this month is The Body Shop cool dusk blush trio. I do love a bit of shimmer every now and then and this is perfect for when I'm in that kinda mood. It looks pretty in the pan and it gives a beautiful colour to the cheeks. Again, something I'm sure I'll be reaching for a lot during the summer.

I noticed that Gemma from Gem's Maquillage & Kavita from iheartvintagex both use the Collection 2000 liquid liner and said that they find application with it really easy and it's so inexpensive. Up until I purchased this I had never used a liquid eye liner but I was in Superdrug and I thought I'd give it a go. I absolutely agree that application is so easy with this and although I've not mastered the perfect straight line just yet - I'm getting there!

This crease brush from Crown brushes was one of the prizes I won from the lovely Tanya's giveaway a few weeks ago. I find it the perfect size to work with and it's not scratchy at all. Plus it's pink, how cute! Hopefully it'll get me playing around with eyeshadows more.

Finally blistex intensive moisturiser lip balm has been my best friend this month. My lips have been so chapped and sore that most days lipstick was completely out of the question. I find this really soothing and it's not been off my lips all month.

Have you tried any of these products? What were your favourites during March?


  1. love these posts, always gives me a wishlist of things to buy! x

  2. ooh i might try the liquid eyeliner (:,X

  3. Ooh I agree the collection 2000 liner is amazing! :) Everything looks lovely :) xo

  4. Nice list of favourites, hun :)

    How cute that you keep things in their original packaging! I try to do that with some of my MAC, but I always seem to forget :D

  5. Oooh, Erase Paste is one of my favourites too - I love it! I'm also obsessed with Primark's coconut lip balm, Estee Lauder Double Wear and Bourjois blush!

  6. I used to adore the bourjois 10 hour sleep effect foundation about a year ago, but im scared to go back to using it.. because i don't think it would be enough coverage now. Maybe ill get it and mix it with revlon colourstay:).

  7. i love the blistex lipbalm too. :)
    great list of favourites. :D

  8. Wow, the Body Shop Blush looks amazing!

  9. Think I need to try some Benefit concealer, everything I have tried so far fails to cover the dark bits under my eyes!

  10. I need that body shop blush!

  11. I'm not a fan of that liquid eyeliner, I think it's a bit globby.

    I'm not a bo-ing fan either, possibly the only person on the planet who doesn't get on with it!
