My March Favourites ♥

Hi Girlies, Hope you are all okay & well!
I havent done a favourites in a while & i absolutely love doing them!
So here is the products i loved using and mostly reached for in the month of March!
I have tried to choose one of each make up product & then thrown in a skin-care product for good measure! :)

♥ Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish ♥
♥ NARS Laguna Bronzer ♥
♥ MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW15 ♥
♥ MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick ♥
♥ Illamasqua 'Nymph' Powder Blush ♥
♥ Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara ♥

Laguna Bronzer - Gives such a gorgeous, bronze glow, with a slight bit of shimmer! Love this & doesnt make you look 'muddy' like some bronzer can do on my super pale skin ♥
Viva Glam GaGa - As you all know this is now my all time favourite lipstick & has been what i have reached for all throughout March, either a subtle swipe for daytime or a heavier application for bright, bubblegum lips on a night time ♥
Nymph Blush - The perfect, pale pink blush! Leaves a gorgeous subtle, pink glow on the apples of my cheeks, I love illamasqua blushes, so pigmented! ♥

Cleanse & Polish - I reach for this product every day! I love how clean it leaves my face, & cleanses & exfoliates in one! I highly recommend this! ♥
Studio Fix fluid - I cannot tell you how many foundations i have bought in the past month, photoready, healthy mix, Nars sheer glow the list goes on! But nothing comes close to my good old studio fix, i have come to the realisation i do love a heavier foundation and this gives a coverage which i love! ♥
Lash extension effect mascara - This is an amazing mascara, it has a really long wand so you can get into your inner corner lashes, i love it! Makes my lashes super long & i have used this everyday for the past few weeks! ♥

So there you have it ladies, my favourites for the past month! Are any of these products on your favourites list?
P.S I just want to say i have reached 1000 followers! Thank you so much, it means the absolute world to me & i love each & everyone of you! If you have any requests then please let me know! :)


  1. I have just started using cleanse and polish again and have missed it - this stuff is amazing - leaves my face squeeky clean :).
    Also have that mascara - I was using the other max factor one - the false lash effect and really thought that was my fave until I got this to try and even though the brush is a lot thinner I really like it and my lashes go huge!!!

  2. Lovely post....where did you purchase the Liz Earle cleanse and polish? Have you got a review on it...if not maybe I could request one :) teehee

    Congrats on the followers again :)


  3. I love Laguna too!! Have you tried the new L'Oreal mascara - it just knocked maxfactor off the number one spot for me! xx

  4. Viva Glam Gaga featured in my March Favourites too! it's amazing isn't it?!! wish this was a permanent shade! <3 xx

  5. Well done on getting to 1000 followers hun!! :) I've just ordered Studio Fix and have never tried it before... Am excited to get it now!! :) xxx

  6. Great post, really helpful and i really wish i had all these products.

  7. whoop whoop, well done on your followers gorgeous! totally deserved :) i am going to have to get that blusher - such a pretty colour! x

  8. Congrats on 1000 followers :) Wowee! xxx

  9. Congrats on 1000 followers! I was thinking of trying the lash extension mascara! Seems like a good idea now! :) xxx

  10. Hello there.
    I just recently started following you!!!

    But I wanted to say what a lovely blog you've got.

    Also what other Illamasqua products have you tried??
    Have you ever used there Foundations??
    I'm looking for a new foundation.
    And thought that they might be the one for me.


  11. I've never given up that MAC foundation since I started using it, I've brought about 8 bottles over the last two years haha!
    I really need to get myself some NARS blush/bronzer, good staying power?

    Lovely post :)

    Loveee Eliza xxx

  12. I felt exactly the same as you about Studio Fix Fluid, I was so disappointed in all the new hyped up foundations. I do really like Bobbi Brown's new one though, but SFF is still my favourite. xx

  13. Hey Doll! just wanted to let you know i've tagged you!

    I've always wanted to try NARS Laguna bronzer - it's on my wishlist - i guess i'll really have to save up and get it - it's been on a lot of bloggers fave list!

  14. I really want that lippy. It's probably still sold out I'm guessing!? Grr. x

  15. Hmm, you and lollipop26 have liked the MaxFactor lash extension mascara - two people - that's enough to make me to buy it!

  16. Viva Glam Gaga is one of my favourite products at the moment too - I love the colour and it smells so gorgeous! The Nars Laguna bronzer looks great, that's been on my wishlist for a while :) x

  17. wow over 1000! well done xx
    I'd also like to know how well the Nars blush stays on before I go and buy Orgasm.
    ps couldnt agree more about studio fix fluid. i cant live without it...

  18. I wish we have Illamasqua here. I can't even buy it off Sephora's website... Oh well, anyhow, I nominated you an award!

    Go check it out

    ♥ Rica

  19. I love Nymph blush. And how great that your all time favourite lipstick donates money to charity :)

  20. I so wanted Viva Glam Gaga but it's sold out online and at my MAC counter, I bought Cyndi though and I love it!
