MARCH FAVOURITES



It is officially April and time to share my March Favourites, I bought a lot of make-up in March and most of them have made it into my favourites. I have been experiencing a whole new level of oily skin last month since I stopped using a certain serum and I have changed my night-time routine slightly.

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: MILANI BAKED BLUSH IN GLOW | MILANI ROSE POWDER BLUSH IN WARM PETALS | MILANI CONCEAL + PERFECT 2 IN 1 FOUNDATION + CONCEALER | SPECTRUM B01 FLAT TOP BUFFER
MILANI BAKED BRONZER IN GLOW SWATCH | MILANI ROSE POWDER BLUSH IN WARM PETALS SWATCH | MILANI PERFECT + CONCEAL FOUNDATION IN 03 LIGHT BEIGE SWATCH.
Starting with face related products, I picked up the Milani Baked Bonzer in Glow, Milani Rose Powder Blush in Warm Petals and Milani Conceal + Perfect, 2 in 1 Foundation + Concealer in 03 Light Beige featured in my Milani UK Haul post. The Powder Blush has a peachy tone and slight shimmer, it is great for adding a little colour to your cheeks. The Baked Bronzer is incredibly pigmented, has a warm undertone, is smooth to apply and has chunkier shimmer particles compared to the Powder Blush. I only swipe once with my make-up brush to apply both the Baked Bronzer and Blush. 

The Milani Perfect + Conceal Foundation is definitely one of the best full coverage foundations I have tried. It feels extremely light on the skin and lasts all day on me. The consistency of the foundation is quite thick - I only use one pump of product which is enough for a full coverage base, applied with my favourite Flat Top Buffer from Spectrum Collections, it is a match made in heaven. The colour range is not great, but I can work with it. See my Instagram photos for reference here and here - these have no filter.

ORIGINS GINZING | HAND CHEMISTRY HAND CREAM
And lastly skincare items. I have switched from using a facial oil to the Origins GinZing just to switch it up a bit. My skin loves the hydrating gel formula as it sinks easily into my skin. The smell is very refreshing and I have never broken out with this. My hands are once again feeling very dry and I dug for my Hand Chemistry Hand Cream- it is the type of hand cream that leaves your hands feeling soft all day and changes the texture of your skin making it smoother.

I have been using the same eye-shadow and lip product featured in my January Favourites, so I resisted mentioning them again, but do check it out if you want to.

That is all for this post, hope you enjoyed it. Until next time!

  12. Lately I've been loving the Milani baked blushes in Luminoso and Coralista, they are really great shades for Spring!

    I've been dying to try the new Milani foundation but I haven't gotten around to it yet, I've heard a lot of great reviews though.
