March favourites 2013

Bad bad bad Charli, after ages saying how much I love doing monthly posts I go ahead and completely miss February. Maybe it was the 28days that threw me? Or I just forgot, I'd place my bets on the latter. This month nothing skincare wise has shone for me really, although saying that I haven't tried anything new and just had a month of the "usual's" that have always been in my stash, maybe I should do a post on that? 
Anyway first up this month are the foundations - Bourjois Healthy Mix and Vichy Dermablend. Loving both these foundations for different reasons, the Bourjois Healthy Mix has always and will always be a favourite of mine because it's just one of those perfect foundations. It covers well enough for me to feel confident but also is sheer enough to look natural. The Vichy Dermablend is the perfect night out foundation for me, covers everything, stays put and there is no flash back.
On the eyes this month I think I have found my holy grail mascara, that's right HOLY GRAIL. The Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara is just THE BEST, one coat and my lashes are long, defined and well just perfect. It's honestly love. For some reason I started wearing eye liner again and the Collection Extreme 24hour Liner was a freebie when you spent £5 on Collection (I stocked up on concealer) and it's actually been really good. A really thin precise line that is blacker than black and lasts all day, this is one of the best liners I have used.
Finally, who can not notice that I have been loving neons this month and one of the best neon lipsticks I have tried is MAC Candy Yum Yum (I have done a post on the dupes for MAC Candy Yum Yum - link!) I know I said that it isn't all that but once you have it you do realise there is nothing quite so neon as this. I've also been loving neon nails too and there is a post coming up this week on them.
Hope you have all had a lovely bank holiday weekend, I'm off to catch up on emails and prepare for the week ahead.




  1. i love bourjois healthy mix founation !! and you have just persuaded me to buy the rimmel mascara! xx

  2. I have the original Rimmel Lash Accelerator mascara and I wonder how this one compares! I think I like the packaging of this one better. :P Candy Yum Yum is beautiful in the tube but I don't know if I am brave enough to wear a neon colour on the lips! xx

  3. Hi Charli, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  4. I bought Candy Yum Yum when MAC re-released it as permanent stock as quickly as I could and I am glad I did. It is literally the perfect Neon! XO

  5. Oh wow Candy Yum Yum looks amazing. Not that I need another matte MAC lipstick... Need to try out the Rimmel mascaras so I might give this one a try thanks for sharing!
