Monthly favourites, this is a first. March has been an exciting month for beauty and I was able to test out a lot of new products and fell in love with a few, accordingly.
Last month, I was introduced to micellar water with the L’Oreal Skin Perfection 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water. I had mistaken micellar water as a cleanser and suffered the consequences for a few days. That’s when I realised micellar water is not going to save me from my laziness–I still need to wash my face! This formula is quite gentle and is perfect for sensitive skin.
When it comes to foundations, I’m very wary since the wrong formula can exaggerate my dry skin. But Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24hr proved to be a great contender with its lightweight formula and medium coverage. It stays all day without drying out my skin.
As far as colour goes, my go-to has been MAC Trend Forecast Spring 15/Lip and Cheek Palette. I’ve never stopped using this since I first laid my fingers on them. I love the darker shades on the lips and the pastel shades on the cheeks. Don’t be fooled, these are very buildable. When used on the cheeks, I find that I can skip the highlighter as the effect is fresh and dewy.
