Please can somebody tell me how it is April already?!
I know I have been a bit absence for the whole blogging ting (yes, ting - not a typo), and the worst part of it all is that I have absolutely no excuse. I have finally began to organise myself (she says listening to the Artic Monkeys and getting nauseous at the thought of even making a revision time table) and that means I have a bit of free time to get my blog back into motion, and what better type of post than a monthly faves?
To kick start my March Favourites, the Nivea Express Hydration Primer which I have been using everyday for the past few weeks now and I'm loving it! It makes my make up last that little bit longer, so by the end of the day it's not sliding off my face. In my opinion, it's not actually that hydrating as it has a strange gel like texture which does sink into the skin quickly, but for me there is just nothing hydrating about it. That being said, it doesn't dry my skin out either which is a good thing. Next up is something that was sent to me, not for my blog but just because I signed up to get a free sample, the L'Oreal Glam Bronze Eau de Soleil*. It is a liquid bronzer with the lightest texture ever, it is as though you're buffing nothing into your skin when using this. It blends beautifully and the consistency is so dreamy that I'm looking into purchasing the foundation that is from the same range. The Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara has been another favourite of mine for absolutely months now, not just March. This is hands down one of the best mascaras I have ever used, especially for the price tag! I do have a little trick with this mascara though, I like to wipe a lot of the product off the brush onto a tissue and then really wiggle the brush from root to tip. I feel like this helps to prevent clumping but really allows you to build up the product to get the flirtiest, flutteriest lashes! If you watch Ru Paul's Drag Race, you will know that white eyeliner is a firm favourite of last year's (season 6) winner, Bianca Del Rio which has just made me fall back in love with my Rimmel Kohl Pencil in White. Popping a bit in the waterline makes your eyes look so much brighter, bigger and more awake - which is definitely needed around exam season. Last but not least, my favourite of the whole bunch, the Jill Stuart Blush in Pop Sorbet. My sister was given this by her friend but unfortunately my sister isn't much of a blush type of gal, so she kindly donated it to me. It is the perfect shade for Spring and it just really perks up your cheeks. It also has a little bit of shimmer running through it so helps to add a nice glow to the face.
