March favourites 2014

I can't quite comprehend how quickly this year is going. Not such a good thing when you've got exams in the summer that seem to be creeping up on you. But instead of dwelling on the negatives, lets look back over the products I've been loving in the month of March!







Firstly, I knew from the moment I first used the Clinique take the day off cleansing balm that I was going to love it. I picked this up in Macy's on a recent trip to New York after spending so long trying to hunt it down in the UK. At first it looks like a hard, white balm but once in contact with the skin it almost melts, cleansing away every inch of make up with it. I also use this to take the bulk of my eye make up off with before I go in with my No.7  beautiful skin eye make up remover. It's quite hydrating, my skin never feels tight after using it. This product is definitely worth the hype! 

Next up is my Dove summer glow body lotion. This is basically a gradual tanner, with a pleasant fresh smell and a whole lot of hydrating goodness. In the winter my body always ends up looking pale and pasty with really  dry skin, so I've been having to reach for this a lot more, especially this month as the sun has made an appearance on a few occasions. However after a  few trial and errors, I've discovered that the best way to apply it to make sure its even, is with a tanning mitt. Other wise it can end up looking very very patchy.

Painterly paintpot by MAC, is such a hyped up product and for good reason. This was another New York purchase and it was a flipping good one at that. This product is so long lasting that I applied it on the morning of my flight home and it survived a day of crying (Ground Zero), exploring and a flight home - my eye shadow was pretty much perfect 24hrs afterwards! (not much could be said for the rest of my face, however). I've worn this every day since without fail. 

My next March favorite is a Mineralize blush from MAC in warm soul. Seriously the prettiest blush shade on the planet. Its a gorgeous warm pink with tiny gold shimmers running through it. Next time you're strolling past a M.A.C counter, swatch this blush and see for yourself, guarantee you'll fall in love!

There's only one way to describe Benefits Gimme brow and that's 'perfect brows in a bottle'. It's got tiny fibers in it to thicken brow hair, to help them appear fuller and the coloured gel tints the skin and the brows to further give to the illusion of perfect brows. It also has a tiny wand for precision and it lasts all day. I struggle to find any faults with this, other than I wish they did a lighter shade because light/medium can some times be a tiny bit too dark for me. 


Hope you have a good April, whatever your plans are and if you're rapidly approaching exams, like me, don't panic, get revising!
