Here are this month’s beauty favorites including some lip products, a blush, skin care, perfume and of course a nail polish! They sort of all fell into the same colour family which I thought was cool (woah, calm down guys, it’s not that exciting). Anywhoo, here they are and tomorrow my random favorites will be posted!
Maybelline BabyLips Colour in R0se Addict: I couldn’t help but pick up one of the new baby lips with colour range and chose this light rose tinted balm to try out. I like the baby lips formulas for light hydration (not heavy duty but they do the job). The scent is obviously lovely, as all babylips seem to be, and the tint is very natural and sheer (a my lips but better kind of colour). I would love to pick up some more in the range to see what they are like. These are around $4 at places like Kmart, Farmers and at the Supermarkets too!
MUA Blush in Shade 4: I picked this blush up with an online order on the MUA website for a measly pound (which was a couple of NZ dollars) and was stunned with the quality and pigmentation! Next time I place an order I will definitely pick up some others in the range as the pigmentation is intense (as in it took me a while to learn how to not apply this in a clown like fashion) and the finely milled, soft powder blends into the skin beautifully letting you either create a dramatic blushed effect or go for a more natural, healthy glow. This colour is a lovely natural muted orangey-pink (a subdued coral according to the website). There’s no obvious shimmer but still has a little sheen which I love. Great product, great quality and amazing price. I have my eye on Shade 1 next!
Maybelline Vivid Lipstick in Vivid Rose (904): Ugh the vivid range from Maybelline, where do I start!? I have two colours from this range and I was mindblown by their bright, glossy gorgeousness. This colour is a bright, vivid pink/red colour that I absolutely adore. Its pigmentation is great and the lasting power really surprised me as I wasn’t expecting much but this lasted really well on my lips. For around $24 at Farmers and Kmart I will definitely keep my eyes out for a chance to pick up some more (I’m looking at you Mandarin Orange!)
Some quick swatches for you: Top is the beautiful vivid rose lipstick by Maybelline and the bottom is a light swatch of the MUA blush (that’s right, light! This baby has some pigmentation!)
Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil: I won’t say much about this other than it has become a new holy grail item for my skin care. Here is the review I did a wee while a go.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Perfume in Cherry Blossom: Along with Marc Jacob’s Daisy this was my other perfume during Summer. I love it’s fresh, floral scent with a hint of citrus and the green tea base notes (I should stop speaking like I have any knowledge about perfumes whatsoever) stops the sweetness from being too over powering. Clean and feminine and easy to wear.
Butter London Nail Polish in Macbeth: Last up is my nail polish for March and it was quite hard to choose one but in the end this beautiful pink toned red by Butter London had to be the one. I wore this several times this month and love the brightness and the beautiful formula of this creme polish. I also rather love the name…
