Monthly Beauty Favourites // March

It's that time again, the post about what I have been loving over the past month. There is a good variety in this monthly favourites and some great new additions to my beauty stash that aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I have to say, spring beauty is my favourite so expect lots of spring-worthy products that are conveniently mostly pink themed!

Monthly Beauty Favourites
Jeffree Star Androgyny Liquid Lipstick ($18) - seriously, I am so glad I picked this as my first liquid lipstick, I definitely made the right choice. I don't really have many liquid lipsticks to compare this to yet (watch this space, I'll have a haul soon), but I find the formula super long lasting, easy to apply and not that drying on the lips. The colour though, oh it's natural and unique at the same time and I just love it. See it on here.

Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe (£27)* - I have used this palette pretty much every single day since I got it (more in depth post here). There isn't one shade that I don't like and they all work for so many different make-up looks. The finely milled powder is easy to blend and incredibly pigmented (so go careful with the brighter shades) but also feels really smooth on the skin. I am sorry to say that this is now sold out, HOWEVER, you can get the individual blushers on the Debenhams website.

Monthly Beauty FavouritesKIKO Glacial Light Soft Sifter Foundation (£12.90)* - I think this favourite is going to stay with me throughout spring, it's so light and bouncy. This, for me, feels like a second skin, which is all you want from a foundation - It provides such a healthy, youthful glow. You can see what it's like on my skin in this post

Lottie London Buffer Brush (£8)* - Ok, so it might be true that I was drawn to the Lottie London brushes for their aesthetic qualities, but they are actually really good brushes for a fraction of the price of higher end brands. They obvs score extra aesthetic points for being in gorgeous pastel colours, but this latest addition to the range is a pretty nifty tool. I don't really use this for applying product (although I imagine you could buff foundation in with this) but I use it as a buffer/blender to go over all of my make-up - including foundation and contour lines) to make sure I achieve a natural, airbrush finish. The bristles are super soft (totes vegan friendly) and are really easy to clean. I am usually welcomed with bristle fall out with cheaper brushes, but not with Lottie London! I now have a nice little colourful collection, but it's not yet complete.

Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer (£38)* - OK, as a primer cynic, I hold my hands up, swallow all previous words and say that this is one of the best I have tried. Not only does this keep my make-up in place, it smoothes my skin and blurs imperfections. I have had terrible acne on my chin lately and when I put this on that area, my skin looks less inflamed and more unified. I could not cover my acne blemishes without this. It's quite thick in constancy and it's not at all siliconey, yet it subtly mattifies and makes my skin feel super soft and supple. What I like about this primer is that it also has skincare benefits so you know you're not just clogging your skin and you're hydrating and priming in one. I have previously done a full review post on the Dermalogica Hydrablur Primer if you wanted to find out more.

Bourjois Poudre De Riz De Java (£8.99) - After finishing my Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot powder I decided I wanted to try something new, which lead me to the repurchase of this Bourjois classic. I have had this a couple of times before, but totally forgot how much I liked it. This isn't for everyone as it does have shimmer particles within the loose powder formula, but it's ever so subtle on the skin. I feel this provides a 'glow from within' look on the skin and is particularly nice to use with dewy foundation, as well as for setting concealer under the eyes for a brightening effect. After having pressed powders for so long it's nice to experiment with a loose powder again - although it has to be said that I forgot how annoying they can be to use (powder everywhere). Nevertheless, the messiness of loose powder still hasn't put me off.

Have you tried/love any of these?
