What a month March was! It was jam-packed with celebrating Easter and lots of shopping which means new products I’ve enjoyed using.
Last months favourites includes new foundation bases, a metallic lipstick and a new skincare brand discovery. So if you want to find out why they’ve made my top picks, read on!
Urban Decay Naked 2
My readers certainly know by now how much I love UD’s eyeshadows but lately I’ve been reaching for Naked 2 for golden brown smoky looks. These looks are so easy to do with three shades but look perfect for nights out.
Revolution Fast Stick Foundation
I’m obsessed with this new base from Makeup Revolution! I’m more of a dewy kinda person rather than matte but I love the coverage and finish it gives to my skin. It certainly has flawless written all over it and I can’t believe how great it is for just £5. I picked up the shade F11 which looks orange-y at first but once blended its perfect for work and even nights out when I have tan on.
Winky Lux Holographic Highlighter*
I can’t get over how cute this little highlighter is. It’s very similar to my Laura Geller one which gives off a gorgeous diamond shine to the face. This claims to create a luminescent glow inspired by jewels. See a swatch of this below, it’s very creamy and applies gorgeous as an eyeshadow in the inner eye too!
Lipstick Queen Metallic Liquid Lipstick
This is one of the prettiest liquid lipsticks I’ve ever bought! I picked this up in Tkmaxx recently for just £5.99 and I just knew I got a bargain. The shade ‘cheers’ is a pretty metallic burgundy and the formula of this feels so smooth and has sort of like a velvet matte finish. Definitely not drying and feels comfortable to wear, even hours later! As you can see in the swatch its super pigmented!
Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter
I’ve raved about this so much, if you want to see my review click here. It’s honestly one of the best purchases lately and possibly from Charlotte Tilbury. If you love a dewy sheen to your face that doesn’t look oily but flawless (obviously) I would definitely recommend picking this up. I got the shade medium which is a little light for my skin as you can see above but I’ve been using it under my eyes and where I’d normally put highlighter to brighten those areas.
Gatineau Radiance Exfoliator*
I received this to try out earlier in March and honestly, I’m so impressed. It’s more of a serum than an exfoliator but you apply this to your face that has a cream/oily texture and slowly as you smooth this in, it turns to a watery texture. You rub this in circular motions and when it’s fully liquid, you wash off. Sounds interesting right? It leaves a gorgeous light coat of golden sparkles that instantly make your complexion look brighter and more radiant. I’d definitely try this as a primer before putting foundation on.
Here’s the finished look using the Makeup Revolution and Charlotte Tilbury base products along with the liquid lipstick. I just love how smooth those products make my skin look. I’m sure you’ll agree there’s some great products in my March favourites – do let me know what you’re currently loving. I always love hearing people’s new beauty recommendations.
