March Beauty Favourites 2015

It's been a while since I popped up a favourites post, mainly because at the time I hadn't found anything new that was worth a mention. Fast forwards a few weeks and there may be a few products that have stolen my heart and I just had to share them with you..

Hourglass Ambient Lightning Blush in Dim Infusion
Hourglass Ambient Lightning Blush in Dim Infusion// Seventeen Dolled Up Mascara £6.99 //
This mascara is definitely the product that's impressed me the most over the last few weeks, I do have a whole post planned so for now I'll just give you the bullet points. It makes my lashes so long and luscious and most importantly of all it doesn't flake, so I can apply it to my bottom lashes. Stay tuned for a more in depth review and photos.

// Drybar Sake Bomb Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner $8.00 Each //
I'd heard a few things about the "Drybar" brand before, but had never tried any of their products until last month. This nourishing mini duo really made my hair super soft and tangle free, plus they smell amazingly fresh, perfect for spring.

// Hourglass Ambient Lightning Blush in Dim Infusion £28 //
Sticking on the "Spring" bandwagon, this stunning coral blush has been my go-to when I want that fresh, glowy, lit from within look. It's stunning when combined with a dewy base and lashings of mascara.

Do you see a marbleized theme here? This blush is very similar to it's Hourglass counterpart, just without the high price tag. I normally gravitate towards more pink tones but I really wanted a natural blush to wear when I don bright lips. This one is lovely, incredibly pigmented and definitely gives Hourglass a run for it's money!

Dark circles are an obvious sign you've been up all night glued to Netflix (guilty) so this tinted eye cream is an extra step before concealer to help cover up those tell tale movie bags. If you fancy reading my review in full.

I'm willing to bet this lip pencil is in quite a lot of favourites posts this month, but I can completely understand why, it has amazing pigmentation and staying power. I again have a post coming up with swatches so look out for that.

I finally got my hands on the famous Dip Brow this month and it's definitely upped my brow game! It is a little more time consuming than my regular Hourglass pencil but I love the effect it gives. A little really does go a long way as it's super pigmented, but I just dab off the excess on the back of my hand. It definitely looks intimidating in the pot but if I can get the hang of it, anyone can!

What have you guys been loving over the last month, anything you would recommend?

XOXO Claire

  5. I know this post is very old, but I'm just looking back through all your posts about Daisy. I have a cockapoo as well who's now 11 months old and I love looking at pictures and reading about other people's pups. Daisy is adorable!! xx

  6. It's so funny how similar my little Milo is to Daisy. He's wearing his cone at the moment after being neutered - so sad because he loves playing with his toys and he can't really until it's removed. He has a toybox and normally he would tip it upside down multiple times a day and toys will be left all over the flat!xx

  20. Aww thank you Alexandra, the Eye Duty is amazing when you have to get up early, it provides a bit of coverage so you can fool people into thinking you've had 9 hours of sleep haha :)

  21. Thank you, I'm obsessed with this shade I have Defused Heat but it's a bit too red for my skintone. Coral and peach definitely suit my fair skintone more :)

  22. I love a bargain, they look like the perfect product for spring :-) x
