March Beauty Favourites

Hi everyone, hope you're all well.

I think this is my first ever favourites post! So here goes...

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette - This is my absolute go-to palette at the moment. I bought it a few months ago when I mentioned it in a previous haul (which you can read here) and have pretty much used it every day since. The colours are perfect and subtle enough to wear to work but you can also "dress" them up with eyeliner to create a glam night look.

Benefit High Beam - I cannot live without this at the moment - I've been really tired (excessively tired lately!) Hubby has been finding me asleep on the sofa at 8.30pm and even when I wake up for work some 9 hours or so later I'm still tired so this has been a real pick me up for my face. I pop it underneath my eyes and across my cheeks and it doesn't make my tired eyes look as bad!

Benefit Fine One One - another product I have been using non stop since I picked it up (in the same haul as the UD palette) I have never used a cream blush before as I had always used powder but now I use this everyday for a little pick me up in my cheeks (I also did a full review of this product in a previous post which you can read here)

Topshop Metallic Nail Varnish in Blitz - A fairly new purchase but one I'm completely in love with. I didn't even need to do a base coat or top coat with this polish and it stayed on for three days without chipping! I thought that £6 for just a nail varnish was a bit excessive (as I don't own any Nail Inc or OPI) and I bought this shade because it matched an outfit I was wearing but I'm so glad I did and I can definitely say I will be buying more from the Topshop make-up range in the future.

Superdrug B Pure Micellar Water - I have only been using this for a few days after wandering round at least four different Superdrugs to find it because I refused to buy it online and pay delivery but it has already made its way into my favourites. Its great for removing my make up (something I have always been really lazy at doing) and you don't even have to wash you face with water after (although I still do because I'm not sure I trust it yet lol) I haven't had any reaction to it and my face has been spot free!

Have you tried any of these products? Have they made their way into your monthly favourites?

    1. Its great isn't it! What colours have you got? Any tips for which ones I should try? x

  5. I love the Naked 2 palette! It seriously is so versatile and I can see why it's a favorite :) I'm still on the fence with the "Fine One One" even though it's getting rave reviews! Will have to go and play with it some more in the store, hehe! Great favorites! xx
