How is it possible that another month has gone by?! I don’t know where this year is going, but one thing is for sure, it’s flying by at the speed of light! It’s been another really fun month for beauty loves and new in goodies, and I’ve got some seriously fun goodies to show you. Lots with an extra fun factor this month! So let’s kick off the March Monthly Favourites and New In Beauty…
Too Faced Glitter Pop Liner (£16)
A girl can never have too much glitter in her life, right? And this month I’ve been loving the Too Faced Glitter Pop Liner in purple – because girls, it’s PEEL OFF! No mess, no annoying glitter fall out all over your face, this liquid liner is easy to apply with zero mess. Which to be honest is the thing that puts me off glitter products, so this one being mess-free is perfect. The glittery colour payoff is fabulous too and you really can see the colour in it. I’ve had some nice eye looks with this all over my lid on top of eyeshadow too. For £16 it instantly transforms day looks to something glitzy and it’s perfect at staying in place without budging too. I didn’t expect to love this as much as I do, but I’m seriously impressed with my Pop Liner.
Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Colour (£24)
I tried Nudestix years ago after buying a set from Sephora and stocking up regularly after that. So when they launched here I was thrilled that they were finally more widely available for us lovers in the UK. Now available with a bigger product range here, I’ve been loving their Magnetic Matte Lip Colour in shade Rose this month. It’s just such a versatile rose pink tone that I can’t imagine not suiting everyone. It’s muted and nude toned while also having a nice pop of pink, so it suits a lot of different kind of make-up looks. Plus I love these because they are so creamy – one of the things I love most about Nudestix products. Plus as far as matte lipsticks go, the creamy texture means they aren’t drying at all so they feel soft from start to finish – FINALLY A MATTE LIPSTICK THAT DOESN’T DRY! There’s so many shades available too that I can’t wait to try even more!
Indulge Beauty Box
Very recently the brand new Indulge Beauty opened at Westfield Stratford City and I was gutted when I couldn’t make the opening due to family commitments. However I was seriously excited about all the buzz that was created about the new beauty destination for London shoppers – plus their website is pretty special too! Indulge Beauty are the new one-stop shop for beauty goodies right now and host some of the worlds biggest brands including Urban Decay, Makeup Forever, Clarins, Beauty Blender and many more. So for the sake of fun, I created this cute video over on Instagram to show how vast their product range is. Can’t wait to try more from the brand!
Birchbox Build Your Own Box
You guys will ahve seen on my Instagram stories earlier this month when I went to the Birchbox pop-up on Carnaby Street, and made my own box. I Insta-Storied the whole process because it was such a fun thing to do. For £15 you got to pick five items yourself in your own box which is then wrapped in ribbon with a cute matching tag – and it’s all so aesthetically pleasing with marble and teal! I fell in love with the packaging alone. Within my box I picked a full sized Spectrum make-up brush, a can of Rituals shower foam (which is one of my favourites) as well as a hair texture spray, eye cream and eyeshadow! I loved the process and loved the goodies I picked.
Natural Spa Factory Organic Cocoa Glowing Face Drench (£20.95 pack of three)
This Easter you won’t need actual chocolate when you can get a chocolate – actual chocolate – face mask! I love the novelty of this face mask, you open the pack and find chocolate drops that you melt down and then apply to the skin with a brush. (Don’t actually eat them!) They smell lovely and when worn the skin feels so nice too. The end result is that my skin felt much softer and more plump and it smelt lovely too! With lots of anti-oxidants, this mask on regular use will really improve the way your skin feels. Get a three pack here.
Sigma 3DHD Blender ($15)
Another one you’ll have seen me unbox on my Insta Stories this month was the brand new and relaunched Sigma 3DHD Blender. Sigma are one of the top MUA brush brands in the world, so their tools are always highly regarded by me. I have to say I’m loving the look of these, combining the great things about round shaped sponges, with two flat sides too, to ensure you get very precise make-up application. I like these because they’re a lot more dense than other sponges I’ve used and apply my make up really evenly – without needing to be damp or wet. In fact, I find these best when they’re dry – not like most sponges. I am really into make-up sponges right now for applying my foundation and face make-up, so it’s been great to see these and they’re really affordable too.
So that’s my March Monthly Favourites and New In Beauty, I hope you’ve found some new products to inspire you and excite you and maybe sneak a purchase in for!
