I know it feels like just yesterday that I sat down and filmed a favourites video but lately I’ve found myself falling in love with SO many new products that I just couldn’t resist telling you guys all about them! March has been a real skincare month for me but I’ve also discovered a lot of exciting makeup products over the last few weeks and I’m excited to share those with you. Let’s get started!
The first product that I want to take a second to mention is the beeeautiful *Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Tinted Moisturiser. You guys know by now that I’m a huge fan of things like bb and cc creams, so when I found out that one of my all time fave skincare brands (Caudalie!) had released their own tinted moisturiser I was super excited to get my hands on one of my own! What I love about this particular tinted moisturiser is that it’s great at helping me to achieve that ‘barely there’ base that I love to wear. It blends really seamlessly and gives my skin a subtle natural-looking glow. I just knew I was going to love this stuff!
Also on my list of loves for this month are the gorgeous *‘Gen Nude’ Patent Lip Lacquers by Bare Minerals. What I love the most about these glosses is that they smell amazing (like seriously YUM!) but they’re also super wearable, long lasting and comfortable on the lips. They come in a ton of beautiful colours but my faves are definitely ‘Bae’ and ‘Can’t Even’. I feel like these are the perfect, lightweight formula for Spring and I’m excited to experiment with some different shades!
You guys know by now that I’m a little bit in love with Glossier (ok a LOT!) so when I found out that they were releasing their own range of cream eyeshadows (called *Lidstars) I was SHOOK. Like literally Glossier, sign me up and take my money!! What I love the most about these *Lidstar shadows is that they’re soooo easy to apply. I literally just take the applicator, dab a little bit onto my eyelid and then blend it out with my fingertips. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with the shade ‘Cub’ which is a beautiful shimmering pinky gold shade, and I’m also really excited to experiment with the shade ‘Moon’ which is a gorgeous silvery white colour. I’m so happy these Lidstars exist and I would highly recommend that you try them out if you’re as Glossier obsessed as I am!
Earlier this month I was lucky enough to receive the *Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Blush Glow in the mail *squeals*! You’ve probably heard me talking about the *Filmstar Bronze and Glow Duo before (which I absolutely love!) I only take a teeny weeny amount of the blush onto my brush but even a small dusting helps to give my cheeks a lovely, healthy looking glow. I lurrrrve Charlotte Tilbury and this palette didn’t disappoint!
Of course it wouldn’t be a true favourites post if I didn’t mention a perfume I’ve been loving! This month I’ve been obsessed with a fragrance that I picked up while I was in Paris which is ‘4.1 Le Musc & La Peau’ by Parfumerie Générale. You guys have probably noticed by now that breaking down fragrances isn’t my strong point, but I would describe this as of those perfumes that smells like it could be your natural scent. Whenever I wear this perfume I’m pretty much guaranteed to get complimented on how good I smell, so definitely check it out if you’re into warm, skin-like scents.
The last makeup product on my list of favourites for this month is the *Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint in the shade ‘Uncensored’. This lip paint is seriously INCREDIBLE…not only because the colour is absolutely stunning, but also because it stays pretty much perfect all.night.long. If you love wearing red lipstick but (like me) you find that it’s a bit of an annoying and high maintenance colour to wear then THIS lip paint is the one for you. Not even kidding, this stuff stayed perfect EVEN after I ate a huge cheeseburger! You need this in your life!
Onto the skincare now and I just have to tell you guys about the amazing *‘Waso’ Fresh Jelly Lotion by Shisedio. I got this a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been using this every other day after my cleanser. To me the formula kinda feels like an essence, so I’ll usually apply this lotion right before my serum and moisturiser. It’s a really lightweight, liquidy texture and it’s incredible at giving my skin an extra surge of hydration. LOVE!
The next two products were recommended to me by my good friend Katie Jane Hughes (the makeup queen!) and I’ve been using them both religiously ever since! First up is the amazing Weleda Skin Food which I’ve actually used before but only ever on my elbows or on dry patches of skin, I’d never even thought to put this on my face! Katie told me to use this on the plane and honestly…I was SO shocked and impressed with the results. This stuff really helped to lock a layer of moisture into my skin and I’ve never stepped off of a plane feeling so refreshed and hydrated in my life! Katie also told me that I needed to get my hands on a pot of the Boundless Solid Oil by 8 Faces and OMG I’m so glad I did! Try it out if you’re curious!
Another skincare product that I’ve been loving is the Guerlain Repairing Honey Gel Mask. This is definitely more of a high end mask, but if you’re looking for something that feels super luxurious then this is the mask for you! I’ve been loving using this after my cleansing mask to really put the moisture back into my skin, it gives me a much-needed surge of hydration and leaves my skin feeling nourished and repaired. Give it a go if you’re a Guerlain fan like me!
A more affordable mask that I’ve been enjoying is the Caudalie ‘Radiance in 10 Minutes’ Glycolic Peel. This is a really gentle mask which makes your skin feel sooooo smooth and gives it a boost of brightness and radiance. I love love love to use this in the mornings because it does a great job at prepping my skin ready for my makeup and also helps to give me that ‘wide awake’ look. I would highly recommend trying this if you’re looking for something that gives your skin a healthy boost!
Last but not least I just had to take a minute to talk about the Fresh Seaberry Revitalising Shampoo and Conditioner. I picked this up while I was in New York and I actually had no idea that Fresh even did haircare!? I bleach my hair A LOT so I’m always on the hunt for haircare products that promise to nourish and protect it. What I love about this shampoo and conditioner combo is that they leave my hair feeling super soft and full of life. The formula of the Seaberry shampoo and conditioner is specifically targeted for colour-treated hair so if you’re a blondie like me then you HAVE to try these out!
So that concludes my beauty favourites for this month.
