March Favourites // Beauty

March has been a busy month for me but its flown past! I haven't been wearing much makeup this month but  I still have some favourites to share with you all. I have some newer products to show you and some older products that I have re-discovered!


Natural Collection were the first brand I tried for makeup back in Year 9 I think and since then my love for them has never stopped. I've recently been going back to my much loved Natural Collection and I've been using the shades Pink Cloud and Peach Melba the most. They are only £1.99 but truly are some of the best blushes I own, I think I might have all the shades available, is that bad?


My most used brush for March has definitely been the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. I think it's made for applying eyeshadow but I find it works great as a blending eye brush! Its incredibly soft and blends my eyeshadow really well. 

Next I've been reaching for my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Eyeliners in Nude and Black. I do find that by the end of the day if I apply the black to my tightline it has smudged a bit but other than that I can't find any fault to these bargain £3.99 eyeliners!


I've used my Urban Decay Primer Potion non stop this March. It really is worth the hype, it blends really nice and keeps my eyeshadow looking nice all day, when I pair it with my Urban Eyeshadow's the staying power is amazing!

Next I've been going back to an old favourite, I used to use the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk all the time but I pushed it to the side after I got the Maybelline Colour Tattoos. Recently however I've been going for more simple eye looks and I find this white pencil really brightens my eyes so goes great with light shadows.

Lastly for eyes I've been using the VIVO VPL Mascara* a lot this month, more than my beloved MUA Every Lash Mascara* actually! I find it gives my lashes more volume than the MUA one and I've been favouring volume over length recently.


For lips I've been keeping it simple this month. I'm nearly out of the Nivea Hydro Care Lip Balm and I'll definitely be repurchasing it after its gone, its by far the best lip balm I've ever used!

On the same tracks I've been reaching for my Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey a lot recently, its a really nice muted pink.

That's it for this month, I haven't got anywhere near as many favourites as I usually do!

What have you been enjoying using recently?

Thanks for reading,
