March. The month that will be forever known and referred to by me, as… Beyonce month! I saw the beautiful, incredible, amazing, unbelievable – OK, OK, I’ll quit gushing now – woman perform at the very beginning of March and it’s fair to say that as well as performing out of this world/[insert your superlative of choice here] it also set me right up for the month. It was always gonna’ be a good’un when Bey starts it off isn’t it? Bey… who do I think I am?… what an arse!
I have an annoying
as fuck tendency to ramble on when it comes to favourites posts. I guess it’s a mix of being ridiculous chatty by nature, and somehow trying – and failing – to condense a month’s musings into one post that doesn’t bore the life out of you poor, poor readers. Let’s see how that attempt goes today eh?
On to the March favourites that don’t include Beyonce, Beyonce’s music and Beyonce’s make up (and if I’m being ‘real’ here…Beyonce’s arse!)
Revlon lip butter in Strawberry Shortcake – This certainly isn’t a new or exciting product, but it’s probably one of two go-to lip products for me. A mid toned, bright pink. Bright enough to perk up your face (result) but subtle enough to wear daily. It also packs a good moisturising punch which is always a bonus…
Maybelline Big Eyes mascara – This is a bit of a controversial one. I do like this product, but I’m not in love with it. It’s a nice mascara – nice is never a good word, too ‘average’ for my liking – it lengthens the lashes well but doesn’t do a huge amount of volumising which in all honesty, is what I look for in a mascara. So why is it a part of your monthly favourites you silly cow? the bottom lash end. To put it bluntly. It does such a great job of covering and coating the lower lash line producing definition that makes the smokey/big eye lover in me very happy!
Charles Worthington Salon at Home Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-in conditioner – firstly a note to charles (who is obviously gonna be reading my blog *tumbleweed*….) the length of this products name? that ain’t cool charles. It drags on longer than I bloody do, but product names that take 10 minutes to say out loud aside, this is really, really good stuff. It’s surprisingly fluid-like and light for a serum but don’t be deceived, it’s extremely moisturising. I’ve finally found that product that saves my hair from looking like straw, without making it look greasier than
Russell Brand a kebab. My mission in life = accomplished. #FirstWorldProblems
Origins Vitazing Energy boosting moisturiser – This deserves a blog post – maybe even a whole blog? Sorry, too much… – to itself. So that’s exactly what it’ll get. Until then, it’s bloody brilliant and I highly recommend!
Now on to the ‘human’ and random favourites. Oh we’ve got some goodun’s this month 😉
Lipstick with some sunshine – I’m pretty sure it was Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup who recommended this blog, and I cannot thank her enough! It’s not very often I find a blog and trawl allll the way through to the very beginning and that’s exactly what I did with this one. Beautiful, clean photography, well written reviews and a good mixture of products, tips and accessories. I love this one!
Zoella’s Company cover – Don’t tell me that I wasn’t the only one that did a little fist pump seeing Zoe’s cover in store? Anyone representing (almost said reppin’ then, before realising and deeply re-assessing my life) bloggers, has definitely got my seal of approval. Looked beautiful, came across great, god us bloggers us bloody taking over. (Yeah, course you are Elle, sitting there in PJ’s eating McDonalds, watching Kardashian re-runs. “world domination”)
Nic from Pixiwoo’s Victoria Beckham Tutorial – Hit the link, need I say more? Stunning!
