March Favourites

 Unlike my previous monthly favourites, there is no real order to these, ive kind of just grabbed what i loved and thrown it all together - enjoy!
 This has very nearly ran out, and i actually received this quite some time ago in some sort of Fcuk set. You can purchase Fcuk products from Boots, and i can find the bodywash version of this here, but sadly not this actual product. I will admit i only used this this month because it was only half full and i wanted to use it (im on a mission to use up things at the minute) however, i realised that the gorgeous flowery smell, combined with the lightness and speedy soak in time makes this a brilliant body lotion.

 This is perfect for spring. Its quite subtle, yet you can build it up, and in certain lighting it looks brighter. Im a great lover of Barry M Nail Paint, and will continue to purchase their polishes, as theyre a winner everytime! 
You can purchase this from Superdrug for £2.99 or here

 I no longer need to use my Nivea cream, my skin has finally allowed me to switch to something lighter, hooray! This is exactly the sort of smell you want to smell in the morning, its a fresh citrusy smell, and the tiny shimmer particles leave me looking fresh (ive actually been wearing this alone and going out makeup free on many days)
You can purchase this here from Boots for £3.99

 I cant believe this hasnt made a favourites post so far, because ive been using it everyday since last summer. It's by Sally Hansen, and although i think its intended to be worn as a gloss, i really dont think it looks right (its almost white when applied). I apply this everyday before i start my makeup routine, and by the time i am done its all soaked in and ready for lipstick/lipbalm/lipgloss.
I purchased this from Discount UK for around £1.99, and unfortunately i cant find this in any drugstores

 Unless i robbed a bank i doubt ill be buying this anytime soon, but i absolutely love this free sample. It makes lashes so long and full, i dont know what ill do when this runs out. Im actually considering saving up for this when i have used up all my other mascaras. This really is top quality, and i do think its worth the price, its just unfortunate im on a budget!
You can purchase this here for £22.50 from House of Fraiser

I received this free as a result of another purchase, and i must be the only beauty blogger who hasnt tried Benefit Highbeam (the writing has rubbed off) and i couldnt wait to try this sample sized product. Despite the fact i had no idea what i was doing, i LOVE this product, and i am deifnitely considering purchasing this when it runs out. I have used this everyday this month, and will continue to do so til the day it dies.
You can purchase this here for £18.50 from Boots

An every month favourite is my Miss Sporty Liquid Concealer. Unlucky for me i had a breakout this month, and i practically drenched my face in this (okay a bit of an exaggeration, but you girls understand!) Its perfect for my skin type, and really does cover up those bloody blemishes!
You can purchase this from Superdrug (i think it was £1.99)

This is probably in my favourites every month, ive just repurchased this and i will continue to do so for quite some time. It covers my dark circles so well, and even if i leave the house with no makeup, ill still apply a small amount of this, just because it does its job so well.
You can purchase this here from Boots for £4.99

Filling in my eyebrows is part of my daily routine, and i love this tedbaker brow brush (recieved as part of a Ted Baker eye set), the bristles are really thick, and so set my brows really well. To apply my brows, i use the Vital Radiance brow brush (this was from an ebay shop) which is so precise and despite the fact ive used this near enough everyday since October, no bristles have fallen out (that i can tell anyway)

The lighting really doesnt pick up the lovely colour this is. Ive used this MUA blusher Shade 1 almost everyday this month, purely because it goes on really well, lasts all day, and brightens up my face just the right amount. This can be purchased from Superdrug for £1.

 Weve had some lovely warm days in March, and on the first warm day i wore this for the first time, and discovered how much i loved it. Its a really flattering coral colour, although i had to dress down the rest of my makeup in order to compliment this. This is Shade 7, and can be purchased from Superdrug for £1.

 I am in LOVE with these, but this has got to be my favourite colour. It almost looks just like my natural lip colour, but more enhanced. It reminds me of what Marilyn Monroe would wear on a day to day basis for a natural look. 
This can be purchased here at Boots for £2.99 

This is my favourite purchase this month, all thanks to Laura-Jayn and her nude lipstick post. This is the most flattering lip colour i have ever used, and it is most deifnitely my all time favourite lipstick. If you want a natural, yet visible lipstick, this is definitely the one to get. I like the staying power, creamyness, packaging and price of this lipstick, making it an all time favourite. Im actually considering purchasing it again just so i have a backup.
This can be purchased here for £4.59 from Boots

So they were my favourites this month, i know theres been quite a lot, and theyre all a bit jumbled, but this month has seen quite a change in the products ive used due to the change in weather, and the fact that spring has sprung!
