I can’t believe that March is over already, it’s flown by! It’s been such a cold month, I can’t wait for the summer. It’s also been a tragic month in many places across the world, I think it’s important to remember those who have suffered or are still suffering. It’s quite saddening to think that even in the 21st Century, such horrible incidents still exist :(. So just remember to love, be happy, live without regret, enjoy each day and take each day as it comes, we never know whats around the corner.
On a lighter and less ‘deep thinking’ note: I bring you my March favourites!
Rimmel London Match Perfection Light Perfecting Radiance Foundation (shade 103 True Ivory) –
This foundation and I go way back, I used to be obsessed with it, but I wore it that much I think I fell out of love with it. I have taken a solid ten months away from this foundation and money is tight right now – a lot of students out there will know this feeling – so this was such a bargain buy for me. I just love how it sits on your face, it makes my skin look so flawless, I never have to wear powder when I wear this foundation. It smells so fruity, which makes me love it even more! The Match perfection goes onto my skin lovely and I barely have to blend it in. This foundation literally does what it says on the bottle – ‘Match perfection light perfecting radiance’. I would highly recommend this to anyone, it’s affordable, long-wearing, the bottle lasts ages, flawless… the list goes on.
Rimmel London Salon Pro Kate Moss nail polish (237, Soul Session) –
I ummed and ahhed about this colour for a good couple minutes in Boots, in the end my friend Jade chose this shade for me. What a good decision that was! I would best describe it as a pink/purple nude. It’s quite a flattering shade. Again, it’s cheap in price – it’s long lasting on your nails, it creates a gel like finish and it looks great in the bottle and on your nails so what more could you want? I love the names for the Salon Pro nail polish range! I was basically looking for an another item for the 3 for 2 cosmetics deal at Boots, but I am so glad I searched properly and got this polish! It’s not a shade that’s ‘in your face’ either so it’s ideal for work which is another bonus!
Benefit Cosmetics Browzings (Medium) –
|A gift from God|
Now, this is my most favourite product this month, my favourite eye brow product of ALL TIME. This product has it’s own blog post on my page. That’s how much I love it! I don’t think I will be converted to another brow product, if I do – it will take a lot of persuasion! If you want to know more about this product, then check out my blog post: ‘Browzings: love at first sight!’ It’ll tell you all you need to know about this product and why it is so damn good.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien –
Now, I’m a massive fan of the films, but I’ve never got round to reading the books. This seems silly since I’m an English student but it’s never crossed my mind until last year to read the trilogy. I enjoyed them so much, I’ve decided to do it for my dissertation! So now I’m re-reading the novels and falling in love all over again. I’m just fascinated with the world Tolkien created, it really amazes me how one person can imagine such things as Lord of the Rings. It must take some real determination. I find the way in which Tolkien writes very enjoyable and interesting. I love the poems and songs throughout, I love the messages in TLOTR, whether Tolkien intended them or not. The characters are so intricate and complex, I want to know more and more about them. If you get the chance to read The Lord of the Rings, please do. They’re brilliant.
L’oreal lipstick: Collection exclusive by Eva (Eva’s nude) –
|How gorgeous is this?!|
This was a very last minute addition to my March favourites because I only purchased it last Thursday. I had heard a lot of great reviews about the new collection so I wanted to give it a shot for myself. I was torn between Eva’s nude and J-Lo’s nude, but again thanks to Jade – I went for Eva’s nude! Maybe Jade should become my make-up advisor, she always makes good decisions for me! :’) Eva’s nude is a rather dark nude in comparison to other nude lipsticks, there is a shimmery/satin finish on your lips which I love! (How it looks on my lips <—-) I’ve had so many compliments from people when I wear this lipstick which is great. It also lasts forever! Even through eating and drinking it still sits on my lips perfectly!
MAC Studio FIX Fluid Foundation (NW20) –
This is a little on the pricey side, so if you want MAC make-up, then save up for it and make sure you won’t put yourself out of pocket before you buy. But, I highly recommend this foundation. This tends to be my ‘going-out’ foundation because: it is impossible to get off your face (maybe it’s because I’m too drunk to do it properly), the price, the flawlessness, smell, final look and durability of it. If you’ve never tried MAC before, I would recommend you really research the shades or go to your nearest MAC counter to find out your shade because it can be very deceiving. Again, similar to the Rimmel London Match Perfection – it does the job wonderfully, but if you’re wanting to feel that little bit extra in quality then go for this. I would say Rimmel London is the high street foundation version of the Studio FIX. So they’re both equally as good as the other! This also lasts forevever, it just never seems to decrease inside the bottle.
Beyoncé’s perfume: Wild Orchid –
Initially, this was a Christmas present from Kayne, I wore it a couple times but I felt that it was to floral and Spring-fied for the Winter. So I put it to one side and came back to it this month, after all it is supposed to be Spring time now! I have fallen in love with the smell. It’s a sweet floral smell, it reminds me of Battenberg cake ft sweet shop ft flower beds. They all compliment each other so nicely it’s a great match. I get compliments when I wear this too. It’s not an overpowering smell either way which is always good if you’re like my Dad who can’t even walk past the fragrance section in a store! I’m using it that much now I’m well below the half way mark, my birthday is coming up in a couple weeks – hint hint Kayne :’).
So, there you have it! My favourites for March. I hope you enjoyed reading them I know that sometimes I get too into what I’m writing and get so passionate about it… I will try to control that in future. I also apologise for the length of this blog post! I have a tendency to babble. Thanks so much guys! I now have an Instagram account for my blog : lifebeautylove_km <—- go check it out!
