Monthly Beauty Favourites | March 2014

With today being the last day in March, I'm here to tell you all about my favourite beauty bits of the month. I've not really spoken about most of these products before, with only one being reviewed so far, so they're all fairly new to the Born to Buy community. 

I've only worn two bases this month, Hourglass' Illusion Tinted Moisturiser or L'Oreal's True Match. The tinted moisturiser by Hourglass is such a high coverage tinted moisturiser. It has a great finish and lasts all day without fading. It has a really natural finish and it's the only tinted moisturiser I've ever liked. I've always been apprehensive about trying True Match as it's sucha hyped about product but it hasn't disappointed. It's really thin in formula but has great coverage and, much like the tinted moisturiser, it lasts really well. 

To set my face, regardless of what base I've used, I have been loving the Too Faced Primed & Poreless loose powder. I've been using this in place of my bareMinerals Matte SPF15 Foundation and have been loving the results. It sets everything nicely without making it look cakey and, most of all, it keeps me shine-free for quite some time!

For colour, I'm loving two products at the moment. My Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in Desert Heat (wearing it in this FOTD). It's such a fuss-free eyeshadow palette and I really love every single colour, individually and together. To contour, I have been reaching for the Maybelline Fit Me Shine-Free Foundation Stick in 310. It gives my face a lot of shape and depth whilst still looking natural. I'm yet to try this all over the face as I don't have an all over face colour but I'm really eager to!

If you didn't see my review, I have been really loving The Body Shop's Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash. I feel like it gives my face a deep clean without drying it out. If you want to read more, check out the review.

I've been loving pretty much everything featured in my recent Illamasqua and MAC hauls, though I feel like I need to play a bit more before they become favourites. 

What were you loving in the month of March? Have you tried any of these products?


  1. Lovely favourites. I've been loving the True Match foundation as well, its definitely my all time fave foundation. I'd like to try the Maybelline stick to contour, so far I've only used it all over! X

  2. Lovely picks! I've been hearing pretty good things about the fit me stick - good idea to use it as a contour!
