Beauty ¦ March favourites

A pinch and a punch for the first of the month.
Hello April you came around awfully fast and I'm super happy about that the days are getting longer and spring is well and truly on it's way. This month I've been buying lots of summery makeup and close and getting very excited.
This months favourites is actually quite a large one. With it being my birthday I've received and bought lots of new beauty bits with my money which I will show you all in a haul on sunday. All but one of these things I've actually purchased or received this month so I'm super excited to show them all to you. If you are interested in reading my birthday haul it's //Here// and as I said before my March haul will be up on Sunday. So without further a ramble lets get into my March beauty favourites.

The only favourite that I haven't bought this month is the Barry M Gelly high shine nail paint in Blueberry, which is just the most beautiful brightened cornflour blue. I love the finish and the lasting power of these polishes but this colour just has my heart at the moment. It's perfect for spring and I can see me wearing it a lot more in the next couple of months. I picked up the Body shop Camomile silky cleansing oil when I went in to repurchase the cleansing butter and I'm really glad I did. I fee like this removes makeup a little easier than the butter and I also find it's been going a lot further than the butter did as I feel like I only need to cleanse once.
I've heard so much hype about the Stila In the light palette and now I completely get it, the shades are stunning and work beautifully together. There's a good mix of shades so I can create so many looks out of the one palette. All the shades all well pigmented and creamy including the four matte shades. My favourite shades are Kitten and Sandstone. Charlotte Tilbury Bitch perfect is possibly my perfect nude lipstick, it's more on the peachy side of things with a creamy formula and an impressive lasting power combined with the beautiful packaging it may just be my favourite lipstick ever (Now that's a big claim)

Another product that is seriously hyped in the blogging community is the Nars Sheer glow foundation I tried to hold off from picking this up as it isn't cheap and I was worried I wouldn't get on with it however I'm so glad I bit the bullet and gave it a go because I'm in love. The finish is stunning and it blends beautifully on the skin leaving a very natural medium coverage which can be built. If you haven't given this a go yet I seriously suggest you give it a try!

Something I've loved using underneath sheer glow is the L'Oreal infallible primer which is amazing at prolonging the wear of foundation but also find it blurs and smooth's my skin well. It has a silicone-y texture which I like from a primer but if you're not a fan of that kind of texture I'd steer clear. Maybelline's Instant eraser eye has been out for ages but I never got around to picking it up. It's a really amazing under eye concealer. It offers a good amount of coverage and it doesn't settle even if I don't powder it. I haven't actually used this on blemishes due to the sponge applicator as it would just spread the bacteria however I have read it doesn't work amazingly on spots.

I first saw the Barry M contour kit on Kate from Sugarfixx's Facebook page and I knew I needed it I'm a big fan of contouring as I have a chubby face and I am really loving this one. I'm not the biggest fan of the middle powder as I find for me personally it's a little muddy however the darkest contour shade is something I've been reaching for everyday. It has the perfect amount of grey in it to make it look natural whilst really making a difference. This months final favourite is the Nuxe Reve de Miel a chocolate orange scented uber hydrating lip balm. What more can you ask for. I also love the fact that it's matte as it means it goes well under lipstick without changing the finish in anyway.
