How is it March already? Time seems to be marching on so quickly. As always, I’ve had a busy month of buying and trying new products out. So much so, that I’m tempted to make March a ‘no buy’ ‘month? I wonder if I’ll manage it.
This month – unlike last – my favourites are not all lipsticks, although I have selected one lip product. Surprisingly, not all of my products are make up either. I do spend my money on other things!
Here are the top 5 things that I’ve been loving this month.
Ps… Velvet Matte Lipstick crayon in Pillar Box Red
Let’s get the obvious out of the way first. It’s a lip product. It’s red. I am bound to be obsessed. However, this is amazing and for the price of only £2, I love it. It lasts so long and I’ve written about it in my post about the Primark make up range. I love this.
Revlon PhotOready Insta-fix highlighting stick
I was out with a friend browsing make up a while ago and whilst she was looking at Revlon foundations, I became intrigued by this highlighter. I think it comes in at least two shades and I got the golden shade – Gold Light. And that is what it does.
I use this to highlight my cheekbones and to give me a little shimmer on a day to day basis. It’s so easy to use. I run a little swipe of this on the top of my cheekbones and then blend in using a blending sponge or my fingers depending on how pushed for time I have.

I’m getting to that age where the fashion that I remember from my childhood is starting to come back. And chokers are back with a vengeance. I loved them in the 90s, I love them now.
They just take a simple outfit and make it look more ‘fashion’ which is often what I need. I am not a clothes person at all. I have 50 million shades of red lipstick and one pair of jeans! (I’m not quite that bad but you get the point.)
Benefit They’re Real Mascara
I must confess – I change mascaras more than most people. I am not at all loyal to a mascara, I tend to just grab what’s there. However, I bought the recent issue of a magazine just so that I could try this again as it came as a free gift. I used to use it a while ago but had forgotten how good it is.
This mascara makes my short, straight lashes look amazing. Not quite as good as wearing falsies but pretty good. If I wasn’t planning a no buy, I’d be adding this to my collection of mascaras.
Cantu Hydrating Leave In Conditioning Mist
Curly hair looks amazing but it can be a lot of hard work to keep it looking good. I gave up relaxing or straightening my hair about 6 years ago and haven’t looked back.
I’ve tried what feels like a million products for my hair and have finally found a range that I love. Cantu makes products that smell beautiful and make my hair soft. I use this most on a daily basis and spritz on my hair just to get a little more moisture and a bit of a shine. I love it!
