MARCH FAVORITES!

Hey guys, March favorites post today! Sometimes I feel like I keep repeating some of the products that I put in my favorites posts, but I don't really change up my products much! Anywho, on with the favorites..




Clinique High Impact Mascara - I received this sample size mascara in a magazine recently, and I have grown quite fond of this guy! There seems to be a nice bond going on between the mascara and my eyelashes as they really do seem to lengthen them which is what I look for in a mascara. I think I might look into buying this mascara full size! You can get this from Debenhams for £16.00.


Benefit They're Real Mascara - This mascara was on my Christmas list and I really did have high hopes for it. I thought that it would separate my lashes and lengthen them. Although it did separate them, it didn't lengthen them as much as I would of liked. However, I find that this is a great bottom lash mascara. It doesn't flake and it doesn't smudge which I find great. I do sometimes use this to separate my top lashes sometimes too! You can get this from Debenhams for £18.50.




MAC Paintpot in Painterly and Urban Decay Primer Potion - The reason I'm writing about these together is because I recently started using them together in my everyday makeup routine. So we are now in Spring and it feels like every man and their dog are cutting their grass because my hay fever has been going crazy. My eyes start running, making me look like I'm crying at people all the time and I sneeze like crazy. I have found that using the Primer Potion first and then the Paintpot that my eyeshadow and winged eyeliner stays on through all of my 'watery eye moments'. You can get MAC Paintpots from MAC for £14.50 and Urban Decay Primer Potion from Debenhams for also £14.50.




Urban Decay Liquid Liner in Perversion and any dried up/empty felt-tip liner - UD Liquid Liner has been my go to liner since Christmas 2010. They don't do it no more, but apparently the 24/7 waterproof liquid liner is the same. If you have tried them both, please let me know below! Anyway, I find that using a felt-tip liner gives me more control of the line and making my winged liner a much quicker job.






Maybelline Dream Matte Powder - If you read my posts then you will known that I have oily skin. So in a powder I look for it to be either matte or generally for oily skin. This does the job and also comes with a compact mirror and a little powder puff. You can get this from Superdrug and Boots for £7.19.




Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Virgin, Sin, Toasted and Hustle - All these shadows are in the original Naked palette. These are the shadows I use daily and switch up between Virgin or Sin all over the lid and Toasted or Hustle in the crease. You can get the Naked palette from Debenhams for £36.00.


Hope you all enjoyed reading about my favorites! If there is anything you would like a review on, please just let me know below. What's you're beauty favorites this month?
