Currently Loving | March Favourites!


It's that time again where I round up all of my favourites throughout the month, and this time around there are some real good'ns! 

First up is a fairly recent purchase, the NUXE Reve de Miel. Oh my goodness, I thought I would terat myself to a kind of high end lip balm to keep on my bedside. But I have loved this so much It's come out on the go with me. It has a matte finish which is perfect under lipsticks and doesn't have a greasy texture. So much winning in my eyes.

I've always been a magazine lover, but never have I got so much use out of one issue. Company's April Issue was in wait for it credible. (I haven't mourned my loss over HIMYM yet) This issue was crammed full of style bloggers picks, trends, high-street edits, Zoella, copy right issues, East London hot spots, an interview with Borris Johnson and so much more. If you can get hold of this issueI highly recommend it, I've gone over it about 3 times and may have to make it a forth after writing this!

Another reading favourite is the latest love of bloggers What Would Audrey Do? by Pamela Keogh. This is simply beautiful. Covering her life, career, style, romance and everything else Audrey. The great part about this book is that the chapters are the right size for travelling. I can always finish a few pages by the time it's my stop, which makes this the perfect handbag book. I won't give too much away, I'll leave all the good stuff for you.

Two similar products are the Bare Minerals Original Mineral Foundation and Sheer Cover Mineral Foundation*. It's that time of year where some makeup just feels too much, goodbye full coverage hello weightless bases. Both of these products are quite similar, one I use whilst tanning and the other for my natural skin tone. The only difference that I can really see is the coverage. Sheer Cover has a strong coverage from first application, but can go very wrong if your too heavy handed. Lots of layers guys! Bare Minerals is a lot softer but takes quite a while to build up and cover imperfections. Leave both on the skin for an hour of two and oh my goodness, the finish just gets better with wear. When using both of these I've had compliments midway a 9 hour shift during the Zara sale. Now that's impressive, and worth a favourites mention. 

A tool favourite has been the Bare Minerals Full Flawless Application Face Brush. I've used a few brushes with mineral foundations and this is by far my favourite. It doesn't pick up too much product and feels super soft when buffing into the skin. I already have my eye on a few more face brushes like the Tapered Face Brush and Handy Buki Brush. So many brushes so little time.

Another hand bag essential this month has been the TRESemme Instant Refresh Volumising Dry Shampoo. I sometimes find that my fine hair goes through stages during the day. I leave the house with big bouncy hair and by midday it's already losing its oomph, so to keep it topped up I like to spray a little dry shampoo through the roots to give it some texture. After a few minutes of massaging I can restyle my hair with my fingers and continue my day with the volume I left the house with. I've learnt to use products in multiple ways, not just their intended. 

My final favourite and of course a returning product is the Soap & Glory Lipstick in The Missing Pink. I've spoken about this in a previous post and I still have the same opinions. The creamy formula glides onto the lips and works perfectly with the NUXE Reve de Miel. I don't think that this has left my side since I bought it, the colour is the perfect shade for my skin tone and bonds well with most of my favourite lipglosses. 

What have you been loving this month? Have you tried any of the products I've mentioned or know of any that I should be trying?
