♡ March Favorites

April 08, 2013

I've been a bit absent on the blog recently so my March favorites is quite a bit late this month, but you know what they say, better late than never!

1. Mac Lipstick in Angel
I'm not a massive fan of pink lips but this is quite a neutral pink colour with a hint of mauve that I think actually looks quite nice on my skin tone. I've been wearing it a lot recently and think its a great everyday shade. 

2. Mac Pro Longwear Paintpot in Vintage Selection
This has been my 'go to' eye shadow base recently, though if I'm in a bit of a rush i'll simply sweep some of this on and I'm ready to go. Full review here.

3. Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Lychee
I don't think I've even looked at my other polishes since I bought this. It's such a lovely colour and the formula is great, especially considering it's only £3.99! Full review here

4. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
After deciding it was about time to make a rare visit to the hairdressers, I've been treating my newly chopped hair to some intense treatments. The Philip Kingsley Elasticizer has been working wonders and it's safe to say that i'm quite addicted. I use it around once a week and simply leave it on my hair for about 15 minutes before shampooing and conditioning as normal. It really helps to make my hair feel much healthier and restore a bit of bounce. 

5. Percy & Reed Finishing Polish
On days when my hair is a little bit unruly, I've been smoothing a blob of this through it after styling and it really helps to tame frizz and define my curls. It also smells amazing.

6. Leighton Denny Glass Nail File
I'm cursed with quite dry and brittle nails that are prone to flaking, though after using this for a few weeks I've noticed quite a big difference.They seem to be splitting less compared to when I used any old nail file. That's quite an achievement in my book, though this nail file also comes with a life time guarantee also making it pretty good value if you ask me!

7. Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter
Though you can use this on any dry area, I've just been using it on my cuticles every couple of days. It's quite greasy so I let it soak in for a few minutes before washing it off, but overall it's really helped to improve the condition of my nails and cuticles. 

It was my birthday at the beginning of April, (April fools day to be exact!), so I'm going to Edinburgh for a few days with the boyfriend tomorrow for a bit of a late celebration. Hopefully the snow won't be making an unwelcome return and we'll actually see a bit of sun. Maybe if I get time i'll also indulge in a few new beauty purchases...
