Beauty Tuesday: March Favourites 2013


Here are my favourite beauty products for the month of March!


Let's start with hair: I picked up a new shampoo and conditioner last month, Aussie Miracle  Moist Shampoo and 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor for damaged hair.  I love the smell of these, especially the shampoo!  I like how they make my hair feel and wanted to continue using Aussie after buying their Luscious Long range back when my hair was longer.  I mentioned the Redken Curvaceous Wave Ahead Mousse and Ringlet Lotion in my most recent hair styling post but if I had to pick one the mousse would be my absolute favourite!  I used this the most last month to define waves/curls and add shape and body to the ends of my hair.  One pump goes a long way and doesn't leave my hair feeling gummy or give it that wet look.


Two Body Shop products made the list for this month's skincare faves.  The Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel is a rediscovered favourite for me, as I used it for the first time two years ago and loved it then too!  Unfortunately right now my skin is an absolute mess as I am breaking out due to hormones (sob!) however I still highly recommend this cleanser especially for removing make-up.  It does an excellent job and makes my skin feel super soft afterwards.


The Nutriganics Softening Cleansing Gel is a gel-to-oil formula which sort of melts into the skin.  It also claims to fight the first signs of ageing which is always a plus!  It doesn't make your skin feel greasy or oily afterwards, just more plumped and soft!  I wouldn't advise using it on your eyes though as it can sting!  


I have been using The Body Shop's Cocoa Butter Body Butter on all my dry spots as the weather has been so cold lately!  I love how rich and nourishing this is - plus the smell is delicious!


One of the items that I received in my box of goodies from L'Oreal was this Blackbuster Super Liner in black.  I am completely useless at applying liquid liner so felt tip ones like this are absolute life-savers for me!  They make it so easy to just "draw on" the line.  Here's what it looks like applied to my upper lashline:


What I like about this particular liner is that it lasts all day, doesn't smudge and is the blackest black colour - very highly pigmented!  


Finally, here were my two most worn lipsticks of the month!  Estee Lauder Crystal Baby and MAC's Angel.  Both are very pretty nudes (are you surprised?!) yet completely different from one another.  Crystal Baby is one of those universally flattering shades which compliments any outfit/colour palette and is quite warm-toned.  In some lights it looks very pink and in others it looks almost brownish nude.  Angel is a much cooler toned nude pink, very opaque and soft.  Here's what it looks like on!


And here are the two lipsticks swatched - Crystal Baby on the left and Angel on the right.  


Let me know what you think of these products!  What were your beauty faves for March?

Stay Stylish!

  2. Take a couple of drops of grapefruit oil and combine with cocoa butter. It's divine!
