Much Loved in March

So as the end of March is already upon us (seriously,it'll be christmas soon!!!) I thought Id post a round up of the items that I have been reaching for the most this month...

Eye shadow
The ones I have been wearing mostly this month are 'woodwinked' and 'sumptuous olive' by MAC.Both effortlessly wearable,they also look great when applied together or with 'sumptuous olive' as a contour colour.

I have been using MAC 'Vellum' eyeshadow as a cheek highlighter.I also apply lightly over my cupid's bow to add definition to my lips.


This month I have worn MAC 'chatterbox' lipstick more than any other shade,an amplified creme finish, it's non drying,long lasting and I love the instant bright look of it when applied full on,straight from the tube.

Lip Gloss

I haven't actually been wearing as much Lip gloss as I normally wear this month,as mainly I have been pairing a more subtle eye with bright lips and cheeks.If I have picked out a gloss it's been the Barry M bubblegum pink shade.Why does Barry insist on not naming his Glosses? Come on Bazza!!

Check out the rim of the Pan to see how much I have been wearing this!!
(I've only had it about a month!)

Without question my most recent favourite is Sleek blush in 'pixie pink' I'm kind of ashamed to admit that I did originally pick it because of the name! But now I can hand on heart say that it is my new number 1 blush!

Still loving the 'One by One' Mascara by Maybelline review here.

Eye liner

RMK gel eyeliner 'Deep Blue'. I love the colour of this liner as from a distance it looks black but is actually a deep royal blue which looks great against brown eyes without being too 'in your face' for daytime wear.


Garnier summer body gradual tanning lotion.
I love everything about this tan,from the bright yellow sunshine-y packaging to its fresh summery scent! It gives me a light,even tan in one application,but I do like a bit more colour (basically I wanna look like J-lo!) and usually apply it 2-3 days consecutively for my personal tastes.The colour is my idea of tan perfection and never leaves my skin feel grubby as I find it does with some self tanners! Does anyone else feel like that or is it just me?


At the moment,I only have one bottle :'( which is Angel by Thierry Mugler. I do usually have more but for some reason I just haven't been willing to stump up the cash.I did pop into Boots last week with the intention of buying Vivienne Westwood's 'Naughty Alice' but it was way too sweet for me,It smelled almost exactly like Kenzo and very similar to guerlain 'insolence'.
 I think my next purchase will be Armani code or Lancome 'Poeme' which I haven't had for years, but spritzed myself with it on the above mentioned trip to Boots,and the scent lasted all day,which is something I don't find happening too often!

Nail Varnish

If you read my last post,you will be aware that I purchased Chanel 'Black pearl' Polish yesterday, so this is now my Ultimate favourite ! But other than that I have mainly been wearing Barry M 'Dusky Mauve' which is an absolute awesome dupe for Chanel 'Paradoxal' I would definitely recommend saving yourself £15 and picking up the Barry M over Chanel.I'm also loving Barry M Pastel and coral shades on my toes now that the British weather has got it's act together!

Phew rather a long post there!! 
What has been much loved by you this month?


  1. I've always toyed with the idea of getting Sumptuous Olive, but I love love Woodwinked! Was wondering, what's the colour that's hit pan on your bottom row? It looks gorgeous!

  2. To be honest sumptuous Olive has been in this palette for ages and I have only just started to use it,although I really love it at the moment.
    Oooh yeah the bottom one is called Shale,Its like a mauve with a pink/bronze undertone I use it loads as a base colour for a black smokey eye its lush!!! :)) xxx

  3. Ah I had a feeling it was that or Vex. I've taken a look at it a few times, but I've never seen it as pretty as it looks in your palette lol might consider it! :)

  4. I really want Vex it's lovely! Aah thanks hun :) yeah its definitely worth getting I'd say,I'll definitely repurchase it! xxx

  5. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (, enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.

  6. OOooh that blush looks amazing! I think I feel a shopping trip coming on ;)

  7. @Lisa I have heard about that treatment,sound fab! Thankyou hun xxx

  9. Thanks Hannah :) Ive had it for ages and not given it as much love as it deserves but im so into it at the moment,i have worn it nearly every day this month ha! Def check out the garnier Its perfect for spring :)and a lovely change from a full on fake tan, so far Ive not gone streaky with it either which is always good xxx
