March Favourites

Hello Lovelies!

A very Happy Easter to you all! I hope you all are having an amazing long weekend! I'm spending mine just chilling out and eating lots of chocolate! I can't believe it's nearly April already! Where is this year going? Anyway it's monthly favourites time again so on with my March favourites! 

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
Liz Earle is more of a permanent love affair in my life, anything I've tried from her range I've absolutely loved and her Cleanse & Polish is no exception! Last month I finished another tube of it but I didn't bother repurchasing it straight away...big mistake! My skin went absolutely insane, I had breakouts left right & centre! It was not a pretty sight let me tell you! But since I've started using it again my skin has completely settled down and it is behaving itself again. I have definitely learned my lesson and will not be straying again! It's such a nice treatment for evening-time and it literally removes every scrap of make-up! 

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
I bought this just after Christmas and it has been permanently in my make-up bag ever since! I've used it to create so many looks over the past few weeks and since work has been slightly hectic the past couple of weeks it has been a life saver! It's perfect for a nice neutral everyday look and it is compact enough to carry around during the day if I want to top-up or change my look to a more evening look by using the darker colours. It has also got a good big mirror which is perfect for on the go touch ups!

Cocoa Brown Tan
I could not tell you how long I have been on the hunt for this tan, every-time I went to buy it, it was always sold out! I finally got my hands on it on one of my recent shopping trips. The poor sales assistant must have thought I was such a weirdo because I got so excited! It has fast become my favourite tan! You only have to leave it on for an hour, wash away the excess and it continues to develop after that. It leaves a gorgeous natural colour which you can build up if you want! For €7.99 it's the best value tan I've ever tried! Amazing!

Max-Factor Midnight Bronze
I've only discovered this nail polish in the past week or so but it was love at first sight! I am obsessed with Rose Gold as most of you know and I have been on the hunt for a perfect Rose Gold nail-polish for months now! Then I found this little bottle of happiness in my local Boots! It is exactly what I was looking for! It goes on really opaque, doesn't streak and lasts so long without chipping!

L'oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash - Romy
Yet another new purchase this month were the L'oreal Glam Shine Stains. I've already done a review on these here. I've found myself reaching for Romy on a more regular basis compared to Juliet. I love the colour, the longevity and to be completely shallow I adore the packaging! I definitely want to pick up more of these! There is a nude one I definitely want to try out!   

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
The new love of my foundation life! I picked this up in February and have been pretty much reaching for it all this month! I find it gives medium but very build-able coverage. I absolutely love the finish it leaves, it is such a gorgeous dewy natural finish and no matter how much you put on it doesn't look heavy or cakey! It also smells so good! I think they've recently repackaged this, I hope they haven't changed the formula! I also recently picked up the Healthy Mix Serum so I hope I like it as much as this one!

River Island Paris Perfume
One of my most random purchases this month has been this perfume. While I was out shopping for my birthday this month I went into River Island for a look. I had never known that they did perfumes and randomly had a sniff. I completely fell in love with this one. I ended up putting it back and went about my day but ended up running back to River Island at the last minute to grab one! I am terrible at describing scents but I definitely describe this as my "grown up" perfume. I have worn it constantly since I bought it. I bought mine in a set which contained a 30ml bottle, a 15ml travel size and a bubble bath all for €20! Bargain!

That is all my products that I have been loving for the month of March. I still can not believe that it's almost April already! Craziness!
