March Favourites / Makeup, Skincare & Random!!

I'm back with my March Favourites! I went on holiday to Dubai last month, so my favourites reflect that sort of climate and atmosphere. It was sooo relaxing and warm! But I'm also glad to be back so here are my favourites...

I decided to take my new Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette with me (check out my review) and I'm so glad  that I did! It's such a great collection of neutrals with light and dark colours to create daytime and evening looks. I didn't wear much makeup because it was so hot and humid; I focused more on the eyes and this palette was perfect for that.

I also took my current favourite mascara which is the L'Oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga mascara. I'm really loving it at the moment! It helps to achieve those big bold lashes with tonnes of length and volume. It's a nice all round mascara and I would definitely recommend it to you guys! (watch my review + demo)

For skincare, I've been a little obsessed with my Chantecaille Eau de Rose de Mai. It's a pure rosewater spray so it's a little on the pricey side but oh so worth it! I just kept spritzing myself with this on my flight there and back, so as you can see the bottle is almost empty. This makes a great hydrating mist/toner/cleanser and you can even use it to set your makeup. I also took a mini Vaseline Essential Moisture Clean Feeling Lotion with Oat Kernel Extract. It makes a great hand lotion for travelling and the light texture if perfect for when on the go. The scent is also light and inoffensive so I will definitely be buying a full size version of this lotion!

I recently discovered the Phil Smith Life's A Beach Sea Salt Spray and it's seriously great stuff. It's my favourite texturizing hair product at the moment. I love how it doesn't leave my hair feeling crunchy, whilst still adding volume and bounce. My hair also feels soft and hydrated after using this Salt Spray which is a bonus!

This new nail polish from Ciate 'Raspberry Collins' looks absolutely stunning on the nails. It's such a vibrant pink shade which I think is perfect for spring and summer. I always rave about Ciate as a brand just because their nail polishes last for ages and the colour remains just as bright. Another pink product that made it's way into my March Favourites is the Maybelline Baby Lips in 'Pink Punch'. It's a super hydrating lip balm with a lovely pink tint; this is another product I've been using non-stop on my holiday!

I've been wearing the Tommy Hilfiger Tommy Girl Eau de Cologne and I can't tell you how many compliments I received. There just seems to be something about this scent that grabs everyone's attention! This perfume is one of my all time favourites and an absolute classic. You have to try this if you haven't done so already; it's a subtle fresh/fruity/clean/girly type of scent.

My random favourite for March is randomly called Rowntree's Randoms! I've been snacking on these way too much recently but they are just so delicious! Have you tried them? What are your favourite sweets that you can't get enough of?
