March Favourites

It's time once again to share with you my favourite products of the last month. Are you sitting quietly? Well let us begin!

Makeup:
This month I tried Shiseido Sun Protection Foundation SPF30. I wanted to give it a try before my holiday in May. I think having a foundation with a sun protection factor is a great thing and the fact that this one is water resistant is somewhat of a bonus. I've used it a few times during March - y'know, on those few sunny days we had! The only problem with this foundation is that the shade range is pretty abysmal, I think there are only four different shades. This foundation looks likely to be a staple in my makeup bag over the next few months. You can purchase this from House of Fraser and it costs £28.00

I'd been after the Naked 2 Palette for ages and when I bought the Shiseido foundation I added this to my basket at the same time! The colours are all very wearable but I've been a good girl and only used this on special occasions throughout March as it's quite pricey. The doubled ended brush that comes with this palette is also amazing! You can purchase this from House of Fraser and it will set you back £36.00

Benefit's latest boxed blush made it onto my February favourites list but I've still been using it almost every day throughout March. I've always thought that these blushes were overpriced but I've found that this one at least is well worth the money. I can't imagine living without it! Hervana is priced at £23.50 and you can buy it from the Benefit website.


Another item I bought to try out before my holiday was Benefit's Cabana Glama Kit. It has a Foundation Faker, Hoola bronzer, Posietint and three gorgeous eyeshadows. I've used this a few times but it will definitely get more use once I have a tan! This is available from the Benefit website and costs £28.50

I had wanted to try a Ciate paint pot for what felt like forever and finally managed to get hold of the gorgeous 'Cream Tea' at a third off at the beginning of March! This shade is absolutely perfect and I've used it loads since I bought it. You can purchase these from Ciate's official site and they cost £9.00


Fragrance:
'Nina' by Nina Ricci has definitely been flavour of the month where fragrance is concerned ... beating my beloved Outspoken to a place on the monthly favourites list after two months. I buy mine from Superdrug and a 30ml bottle will set you back £25.99


Household:
If you guys checked out my Mothers Day Gift Guide you will have already seen this product. I use this teapot and cup set when I'm doing something upstairs (like cleaning or laying on the bed reading a book). It looks awesome and this one is the Afternoon Tea version. There is also a Parisian Tea version which I hope to get my hands on soon. These cost £18.00 and are available from the Disney Store.


Food:
Let me off guys ... it is nearly easter ;)
(Creme Eggs are available in most places at this time of year).
