Best In Beauty | March

This month was such a good month for favourites, I fell in love with so many products so here they are.

Blushes That Give My Face Life

Blush is one of my favourite steps in makeup. The right blush can completely transform the face, making it appear more alive, more glowing and healthy. So today I thought I'd share my favourite blushes that make me look alive.

Foundation Sticks - The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

If you're OG reader you'll remember this little series I started ages ago (you can read my previous The good, the bad and the ugly posts here) It's been a while but I thought I'd bring the series back. And today I'm talking foundation sticks. Foundation sticks have come a long way recently and gone are the days of a thick, cakey foundations that you basically paint on your face! Who remembers the Max Factor Pan Stick? If you've ever tried that foundation stick, you'll know what I mean. But anyway here are some foundations sticks that are amazing, ok and the ones that just should be avoided!

If You Have Dry, Damaged or Bleached Hair You Need This!

I have naturally very dry hair, that and regular bleaching sessions means my hair is not looking it's best. Breakage is becoming an issue and my hair is looking a little birds nesty. So when this Pureplex treatment landing on my desk I put it on my hair that evening!

Skincare I'm Just Really Loving

I try to make my posts as useful as possible and try to think of really good edits that you will all enjoy, but sometimes I just want to talk about things I'm just really loving. So that's what this post is - skincare I'm just really loving.

A few Drugstore Discoveries

I feel like the drugstores have been on it with there launches recently. I've been testing loads of drugstore finds and I'm ready to report back.

8 Products That Have Wowed Me This Week

I've testing makeup and skincare, as always but a few products I've tried have completely blown me away so here I am to share them with you guys.

Benefit Gold Rush Blush* | £25.50

Can you believe I've never tried a Benefit blush? I wasn't really sure what expect when this landed on my door step. But as soon as I opened this I feel in love with the shade. It's a stunning Peachy, Coral with Gold shimmers in it. In the box this does look super shimmery, almost like a highlighter but this doesn't translate on the face. It gives the cheeks a luminous glow, makes my face look alive and lifted! The formula isn't overly powderery and it doesn't look like powder on the skin. It also lasts all day on me. This is exclusive to Cult Beauty. I now need to try more blushes from Benefit!

Rosie For Autography Cream Shadow Sticks* | 12.50

I just love the convenience of shadow sticks. Just swipe and go. I was completely blown away by these ones from Rosie For Autography. They are so pigmented, so creamy but once they have set these do not budge! They stay vibrant and bold all day. I have 3 shades:

Almond Eyes - this is a really nice Pinky, Champagne colour. I love this as an inner corner highlighter. I also like this as a subtle wash of colour all over the lid.

Feline Fox - is a beautiful Brown colour with an Olive shift to it. It's a pretty shade that looks so nice all over the lid.

Movie Star Crush - this looks like it's a Bronzey colour in the stick but it's actually like Brown, Purple colour. It looks gorgeous all over the lid.

Overall, I'm so impressed with these! If your looking for a quick, easy shadow that will last all day look no further.

LIXIRSKIN Electro Gel Cleanser* | £25

Well this brand just wins in terms of packaging! I love the simple Pink tubes. I do plan on doing a review of all the products I've been trying from this brand but I wanted to give this cleanser a mention because it was love at first use! It's a rich cream cleanser that is a real pleasure to use! It melts away makeup, lifts away impurities and toxins in the skin. It has a clever science behind it to. It has a negative charge which attracts impurities to deeply clean the skin! After one use my skin felt so smooth and clean. But not stripped! I'm in love.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Bronzer | £29

ABH has been on fire with their new launches. I've brought them all. I've spoken about the Soft Glam (here) and the Amrezy highlighter (here), both of which I love but I was completely blown away by this bronzer. I have the shade Tawny which is the perfect contour shade, it's not too cool, nor too warm. It sculpts my cheek bones in the most perfect, natural way. The formula is easily one of the best I've come across. It's so buttery and not like a powder at all. It fuses with my base products and looks so natural, but still visible. I need to get a warmer shade next for bronzing my whole face.

GOSH Copenhagen Illuminating Primer* | £14.40

I've been a serious primer Junkie, I just can't get enough of them. One that I've been loving is this illuminating One from GOSH. It has a Yellow tone to it which brightens up the complexion. It isn't as runny as most illuminating primers but I prefer this, it also helps to fill in pores and blur fine lines. It gives my skin a lovely healthy glow without looking shiny, or glittery. Makeup applies beautifully overly the top and it keeps my base looking radiant all day. If your in the market for an illuminating primer I really can't recommend this enough.

Becca Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss | £18

Cult Beauty had a discount on Becca so it would have been rude of me not to order a few things. I went for this gloss and I'm impressed with it. I went for the shade Opal X Jade which is a really pretty sheer Pink. I love to use this as a lip topper with my favourite liquid lipsticks. It gives the lips that juicy, plump look. The formula is slightly thicker than some glosses but it's not heavy or sticky, it actually helps it to last a bit longer.

ByBi Beauty Lip Duo* | £9 Each

Well these technically didn't wow me this week but I wanted to include them because I'm obsessed with them. The lip scrub smells amazing and contains gritty, scrubby particles that buff away any dead skin on the lips. It also contains sweet Almond oil to hydrate the lips to. This has really saved my dry chapped lips. The Lip plumper is equally as amazing. It's a super hydrating balm that instantly soothes and hydrates dry lips. It also contains Peppermint which increases blood flow to lips making them appear plumper. I've been using them both and dry, flaky lips are no longer an issue.

BYBI Supercharged serum* | £32

Another product I've been loving from BYBI is this serum. This weird weather has really taken it out of my skin so I've been really enjoying anything soothing and hydrating. This serum in particular has quickly become a staple in my routine. It's packed with super hydrating ingredients like Squalene and Nut Seed oil. It has a really silky smooth consistency that feels so nice on the skin! It has really helped keep my skin hydrated. Plus all BYBI products are 100% natural, cruelty free and vegan. So the brand is definitely one to check out.

ABH X Amrezy Highlighter - Worth the Hype?

I actually had no idea who Amrezy (AKA Amra) was until I saw this on Anastasia Beverly Hill's Instagram. When I did I just knew I had to have it. As regular readers will know I'm bit of a highlighter junkie so I thought I'd let you guys know if this is worth the hype.

Makeup Lately

I really don't think these posts need an introduction anymore. But if you're new here this is basically the makeup I've been reaching for recently.

On the very odd occasion I can't be bothered with a 10 step skincare routine. But not doing anything to my skin is never an option so I have a few products that give me amazing skin without spending 20 minutes in the bathroom, and using 10 different products.

Two Beauty Tools I Never Knew I Needed

I've discovered Two beauty tools from Philips that have quickly become essentials in my routine. But they are products that I never even thought I needed. So today I wanted to share them with you.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam

The beauty community went crazy when they saw Anastasia Beverly Hills were going to launch this palette. And for good reason, it's stunning! It's a warm natural palette, with a mix of mattes and shimmers. Modern Renaissance is one of my most of loved palettes and I think ABH have just hit the nail on the head when it comes to eyeshadows so as soon as launch day rolled around, I brought this straight away, with no second thoughts!

Affordable Beauty Products That Blew Me Away

Affordable beauty can be so hit and miss. From crap makeup shade ranges to cheap ingredients in skincare that can cause me to break out. Recently I've turned into a bit of a beauty snob and the majority of what I use is on the more expensive side. But that being said I have found some amazing affordable beauty products that work brilliantly and easily rival products that are triple the price. So here they are.

Seriously Full Coverage Concealers That Make You Look Like You've Had 10 Hours Sleep

My dark circles are just out of control. No matter how much I sleep, how much water I drink or eye cream I use, nothing has helped (to date). So I have to rely on concealer to make me look more awake. Under-eye concealers are such a tricky category for me too, because I want it to be full coverage, look natural and not crease. Which is actually pretty hard to find in a concealer. Luckily I have a few that tick all the boxes.

Cold Weather Skin Saviours

I feel like it's a weird time in the UK at the moment, one minute we're talking about spring and spring makeup, yet we're knee deep in snow. My skin is certainly is not acting liking it's spring! The weather leaves my skin super dry, Red and needing a little TLC. Luckily I have a little stash of products that help stop this weather reeking havoc with skin.
