March Favourites

It's favourites time again! One stand out hair product this month has been the Charles Worthington Texturising Spray, people say it is a dupe for the Oribe texturising spray which I haven't tried. But I don't feel any need to splash out on that one as this one is amazing! It gives amazing texture with the hold of hairspray which is what I've been missing in most texturising sprays. My one skincare fave this month is the Origins Gin Zing moisturiser. I have a sample size but it's a very good size! I think I got it when I bought the GinZing moisturiser. It took me a while to try this as I was pretty happy with my Balance Me Eye Cream but one day I thought I'd give this a go. It is a salmon-y colour which provides a really great base for concealer, it doesn't give coverage but it seems to blur the colours which makes me use less concealer. I will definitely be buying the full size when this sample runs out.

Make-up favourites start with the L'Oreal True Match Foundation, I bought this for day time (which is why I bought my pale shade) but I actually think it's better for evening. It can be built up to be a really good coverage and lasts really well so I think I'm going to go and pick up my fake tanned shade. The other base product I've been loving is the Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Powder. I first tried this in the little compact it comes in with the creamy concealer. I loved it for setting my under eye concealer and then ended up dusting it all over my t-zone so I decided I'd buy the big version this time! It's such a gorgeous fine powder which doesn't look cakey even when re-applied during the day.

My wonderful boyfriend bought me the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette as a present for our 3 year anniversary. I don't know how I've resisted buying any of the naked palettes this long (probably cause they are crazy expensive!!). This eyeshadow palette has completely exceeded my expectations, I knew there was loads of hype but I really didn't expect it to be this good. The eyeshadows are so pigmented and so easily blended. It's a dream to use. It also comes with a double ended brush which is amazing quality and samples of each of the UD Primer Potions which I'm excited to try! 

Hope you all had a great month, mine was slightly hectic at work but April seems better so far. Plus my birthday is in April yaaaay! Expect a birthday wish list later this month which I hope my mum is reading ;)
