March 2015 Beauty Favourites

It’s time for March favourites! Can you believe that 1/3 of Spring is already behind?

Let’s start with makeup, this month I have a good mix of products price-wise, from affordable Rimmel and Max Factor, to a high-end Rouge Bunny Rouge and uber luxurious Omorovicza.

Bobbi Brown Natural Brow Shaper & Hair Touch Up in Slate (review)

This is still the only brow product that I use on a daily basis. It makes the brows look fuller, tints them and holds them in place. This is love.

Omorovicza Complexion Perfector BB SPF 20 (review and swatches)

This month I have re-discovered my love for this base. It is like a good looking skin in a bottle. The skin is glowing and radiant, and the  tone is evened out and perfected.  I have written a very detailed review in the past, so you are welcome to take a look.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and face swatches)

The brand describes the  texture as “3D silicone gel”, and it does feel like a light mousse-y gel  texture (the only similar product that I have, is my favourite cream eye shadow by New CID) which is foolproof.

You can even use the product with your finger and gently blend all over the lid.  The formula is pretty unique, you can sheer it out, or add layers for a more intense effect.

As for the look, yes it is quite shimmery, but it looks pretty!  It never is flat, but instead, gives dimension, and reflects  the light beautifully.
