March Favourites - Part 2

Illamasqua 'Katie' Blusher - A gorgeous, milky pink that adds a pretty flush to your cheeks.

Bourjois Highlighting Powder - Adds a gorgeous pearlescent sheen to the skin, I pop this on over Illamasqua 'Katie'.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in 'Tawny' - I have a feeling this might have broken me out slightly, however I love the colour - it doesn't oxidise. I have incredibly oily skin and even on me, once it's applied this isn't moving until you wipe it off at the end of the day!

Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Foundation in 'Creamy Beige' - For days when I want less coverage and a slightly more dewy finish I mix this in with the Estee Lauder Double Wear.

Maybelline Pure Cover Mineral Concealer - I've had this for ages and it's still not run out, great colour, good coverage, brightens and it's cheap!

Natural Collection lipstick in 'Apple Blossom' - I've finally found my perfect nude! It's pigmented enough to blank out my lips but not to the point where it looks like concealer or corpse-like, plus it has a slight pink tinge to it. (see below) and only £1.99!

Yes, there's more!

Urban Decay Primer Potion - Came with my Naked Palette, it covers up any veins on my eyelids and keeps my eyeshadow in place all day.

Prestige Longest Lashes Mascara - I saw Tanya from Pixi2woo using this so had to try it out when I saw it in Boots, it's around £6.99 and adds loads of length, seperates the lashes really well - full review to come!

Boots No.7 Exquisite Curl Mascara - Bit pricey, but after all the rave reviews I had to pick it up. So far I'm liking it, especially the wand! Full review to come on this too.

BeautyUK Pearl Eyeliner in 'Eclipe' - This is a new addition to the BeautyUK line, it's a gorgeous mightnight blue/ almost black shimmery pearlescent eyeliner that looks gorgeous flicked out with a bit of a smokey grey or dark blue shadow.

Maybelline Gel Liner - I love this so much that I have binned every single liquid liner I own, even Loreal's Super Liner. It's creamy, pigmented, long lasting, affordable and I urge everyone to try it. Plus, the brush it comes with is great for application.

Urban Decay Naked Palette - Gorgeous selection of colours varying from nudes to golds and darker shades. I don't think I'll be buying any other shadows anytime soon!

10 beauty obsessed ladies have an opinion...:

  1. I love Double Wear too, I just can't believe the longevity and the way it isn't shiny on my oily skin! I think it broke me out initially too, but since I started using a muslin cloth cleanser AND a facebrush to scrub it off my skin's improved loads! I really, really want the Naked palette but can't really justify spending that much when I don't use eyeshadow every day, sigh. x

  2. Think I need to try the Bourjois highlighter as I don't own to many highlighters really. I've never really looked at prestige's mascara before maybe I'll look soon as my mascara is starting to run out :) xx

  3. I love how the lipstick looks! If only I could be able to pick that up </3

  4. The lipstick is pretttttty! I love my NAKED palette♥


  5. Apple Blossom is soooo nice, and it's really really cheap! Thanks for sharing that with us, I'm definetly going to buy it next time I'm in town! xxx

    Also, I'm having a giveaway for a makeup palette over at my blog, you might wanna check it out :)? Love Hannah xxx

  6. the natural collection lipstick is nice :D

  7. I would really like to try the Bourjois highlighing powder and also the bronzing powder that they do. You have a lot of favourites ;P


  8. @Terri - Haha, yes I know. I'm not sure how everyone else manages to whittle it down to just five or six items! x

  9. hiya hun! was just wondering where you managed to get the borjois highlighting powder and the prestige mascara?? i've never seen the highlight powder anywhere! and i thought prestige was only available in the states!! x

  10. @bebeauforever - You can sometimes find the highlighting powder in Superdrug or Boots, I had to get mine off Ebay but it ended up being around £4, super cheap! Prestige you can get in Boots :) xx
