Rambling March Favourites / 2017

March has been a funny month. Throughout the month, I have been trying to think of a couple of favourites to get the ball rolling but it has taken me right to the end of the month to think about the ones I've been loving.
Rambling March Favourites / 2017
No.7 Beautifully Matte Foundation £14.50
I picked this foundation up because I ran out of my favourite Barry M one, instead of buying another one I opted for something new, this foundation. When I first applied it to my face with a brush I was amazed at how full coverage this foundation is, as well as the fact that it stays on for the full duration of the day 8+ hours. Also, it's oil free which is ideal for my combination skin as this means I don't look like an oily mess at the end of the day.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer-Post £18.00
For some reason, I completely forgot about this concealer. I didn't touch it for a good three to four months but now I've been using it non-stop. I forgot how amazing this concealer is, it has brilliant coverage, I adore it mostly for covering spots as it makes them disappear within seconds. Not only this but like the foundation, it lasts all day!

Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner in 15 Dig It £2.98
I'm unsure as to why I haven't heard anyone speaking about these before, as I have a feeling that they are going to be a great dupe for the Urban Decay glitter liners for a fraction of the price. This liner is a beautiful olive colour due to the combination of black and gold glitter particles within the liner. Although it applies wet on the eyelid it does dry down over time but I wouldn't advice touching your eye from then on as it will flake off if it's dry. As I have green eyes this liner really makes my eyes pop which is why I've been loving it recently.

The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask £16.00
When I found out that this mask was included in their advent calendar I was ecstatic, I couldn't believe my luck as I had been after this specific mask for ages. Ever since I've been using this once to twice a week, depending on how bad my skin is, and I've found that my skin feels refreshed and revitalised after every use. The mask is infused with bamboo charcoal, green tea leaves and organic tea tree oil and that combination has been helping to keep my skin under control. Also, if you wash it off in circular motions it can also work as an exfoliator! 

Real Techniques Foundation Brush £8.99
As you now know that I've been using a mask on my face every week I've started applying the mask with this foundation brush. Using a brush is more hygienic than using my hands, which is what I used to do. I've found that this is the easiest way to apply it evenly to my face as well as being able to reach all of the hard to reach areas, including around the nose. 

Well, those are all of the things which I've been loving in the past month. Have you tried any of these before? What have you been loving this month? Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
