March Favourites

March is the season which welcomes spring which excites me hugely as I am totally done with winter now. I have had a good look through my collection and pulled out some old favourites which have proven to become staple pieces once again in my makeup routines.

This Works Pillow Spray has been an absolute dream this month trying to sleep after night shifts hasn't been as easy as I thought so this has been an absolute gem. I have been recommending this to all of my friends who have been struggling to sleep with their similar out of sync sleeping patterns. I got this for Christmas in 2014 so it has lasted a good while. I spray it all over my pillow as well as my wrists and neck, which is probably not recommend however it definitely works. The scent contains Lavender, Vetivert and Camomile, so all lovely soothing ingredients. To me all I can smell is the lavender which is quite overpowering and is not my favourite scent, but works a treat at knocking me out to sleep! It is £16 from Boots for 75ml which is excellent value for how long it lasts.

MAC Brave instantly popped to the top of my mind when I was thinking about what to put into this post. It has been this lipstick which I have instantly reached for when I can not quite decide what colour to go for, as it is so reliable and literally goes with every makeup look. As I am quite pale skinned is the perfect shade of in between purple and pink. It is not too dark meaning that it is everyday appropriate, and adds a pop of colour to a simple eye and base. It is the standard price of £15.50 for lipsticks from all MAC stockists.

MAC Lingering Eyebrow Pencil, has been part of my makeup routine most days this month. I have been very much into the strong brow, channeling my inner Cara Delevingne. I have been through numerous amounts of this eyebrow pencil as I can just always rely on it to get the job done. It is slightly too dark for my complexion, but it is very easy to blend out into a lighter shade which is perfect for me. The nib of the brush is fine and helps with precision, so you do not end up with too much product on your brows. For £13.50 I actually think this is one of the cheapest of the high end brands in terms of eyebrow products as some can be up to £20 at the moment.

This month brought me to the end of my ever so reliable Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, I wrote about this a few months ago as it was featured as a freebie with Elle magazine. It was instantly a favourite and I have been using it ever since. The nib is very fine and is the perfect size for just a thin line, allowing you to build it up thicker where necessary. One morning last week it just stopped working and it had completely ran out, I have been eyeliner less ever since. I will definitely be picking another one of this up when I can, it is now stocked on SPACENK and is £12.

The Laura Mercier Foundation Primer has been sitting in my makeup collection since Christmas when my sister bought it me. I brought it out this month as I needed something to make my makeup last as long as possible as my foundation and concealer had seemed to only be lasting a few hours. From what I have seen so far it works really well, it is a cream based formula which applies very easily. You only need a tiny bit, as a little definitely goes a long way. It is £29 from Selfridges which is steep but it does get the job done.
