March Monthly Beauty Favourites

It's been a while since I've put a post out about my monthly favourites, I've been playing around with too many new products to really get a good feel for them. But in March, I started to get back into using things that I really enjoy. My go to products in March were all about being travel-friendly (hence why the majority of them are travel-sized) and simple to use. 

Barry M 'Fall in Love' Eyeshadow Palette

When I first started seeing the Barry M Fall in Love Palette all over Instagram, the first thing I noticed was that it has similar red and orange shades to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. To be honest, I didn't get subculture because of the issues with the palette's formula and because I wasn't really interested in half of the shades. It was only the warm yellows and oranges that stood out to me. I picked this out not because I though it would be a 'dupe' for some of the Subculture Palette's shadows, but just because I wanted to experience such bright shades without breaking the bank.

Kat Von D Rock Candy Studded Kiss Lipstick Set

Now, I'm not one for super unusual or funky coloured lipsticks but when I saw this Kat Von D Rock Candy Studded Kiss Lipstick Set in Debenhams last month, I just had to buy it. The only lip products that I had tried previously from Kat Von D were the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, so I was super excited to try something new.

Boxing Day Sale Lush Haul

I'm a big fan of the Lush Boxing Day sale, it's the one day each year when I buy the majority of my products to last the rest of the year. Everyone knows that to get the best pick of the sale you have to go to the stores opening, which can get a bit crazy. Now, I could not get to the Lush sale personally, my mum kindly did my shopping for me, but supposedly my local shop was a bit crazy. Bless the hearts of all those Lush employees who have the patience of saints. I know it's a bit late because Boxing Day was over two weeks ago; I debated whether to still post this.  I'm still posting this because I think it would be good to talk about what I picked and why.
