March Favourites Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural Skinsitut Enzymatic Micro Peel Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Kissing Lipstick Valentine Cheek to Chic Love Glow Blush review
Another month, another batch of favourites. March has been pretty laid back for me and I'm enjoying my last month or two of laid back life before the full time job search begins in earnest and I become an official career woman. For now though, I hope you enjoy my favourites and let me know what you have been loving this month.


Skinstitut Enzymatic Micro Peel $30.15
Skinstitut Enzymatic Micro Peel review
You guys, this mask! My love affair with Skinstitut continues and I have a full review of the entire range for dry skin pending but, in the meantime, let me sing praises for this mask. It is a gentle, soothing micro exfoliant especially for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. I use this once or twice a week and it doesn't dry me out or irritate my skin at all. It just leaves my skin so incredibly smooth and makes makeup application a million times easier! I was generously gifted a lot of the Skinstitut range but I actually bought this one myself and I would do it again in a heartbeat! You absolutely need to try this out.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask review
Apparently, with cooler and dryer weather on the way, March was the month that I committed to finding some excellent masks for my dry skin. Wow, did I succeed! I actually dedicated a full review to this mask but there was no way it wasn't going in my monthly favourites. I have found the best mask for skin that will not hold any form of moisture or hydration. I use this once or twice a week and I wake up with the softest, most moisturized  skin ever. If you have dry skin, get yourself this mask because it is incredible.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Valentine $49

I have been obsessed with my small collection of four Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks lately and I even featured one in my February Favourites. This month I used this limited edition shade, Valentine, so much. It is the prettiest warm light pink lipstick that perfectly suits my pale skin. It is the perfect every day lip shade for me that really brightens my whole look and I think it would look really pretty on a lot of skin tones. Remember, it is limited edition so if you are interested, get it while you can.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush in Love Glow $60
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blush in Love Glow review
I'm not going to lie... this is one hella expensive blush. But considering the quality and beautiful packaging, I don't regret splurging for it. I'm pretty sure Love Glow is the most popular of all of Charlotte's blush shades and I can see why. It is a gorgeous everyday pink that would look lovely on most skin tones. The formula is definitely luminous and glowy but there is no noticeable shimmer, especially on the cheeks. I've been using it as my everyday blush a lot this month and I'm in love.

MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural in Light $52
MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural in Light review
This is the pressed powder for dry skin. I don't like an overly matte finish to my skin but I do like to set my makeup with powder to make it last so this is the perfect solution. It is a really glowy, luminous powder that doesn't make the skin look flat at all. Also, it doesn't cling to or accentuate any of my dry patches. The powder is quite light coverage so I wouldn't use it by itself but I love it over liquid foundation because it doesn't add much pigment which can start to look cakey. What really sold me on this powder was a photo I took on my holidays just after I bought it. I loved the way my skin looked with that soft glow. 

So there you have my March favourites. It was pretty much all about masks and Charlotte Tilbury this month. I would love to know what you have been loving this month so make sure you let me know in the comments below.

Disclaimer: I purchased all of these with my own money. As always, my opinions are my own.
