March Sparkles

Friday, March 28, 2014

Hello lovelies,
if you clicked on this post wondering what the hell are ''March Sparkles'', you may not know that last month I decided to start naming my monthly favourites my monthly sparkles.
But can you actually believe that April is almost here?
















 I seriously can't believe March is almost over. I feel like this month ended before I even managed to take a breath properly, probably because all the Uni work I had to do. 
But enough of that, it's time to show you my favourite products of the month.





















The first product I've been loving but kinda hating at the same time is the Garnier 5sec Perfect Blur smoothing perfecting primer. I absolutely love it because it actually hides my pores and on top of that it makes my skin feel silky smooth. The thing that I don't love about it, is the fact that it makes my T-zone shiny so much faster. Obviously I can just use a setting powder through the day, but I also find that my BB cream/ foundation doesn't last as long on me. I still need to try applying it over a mattifying moisturiser and hopefully this will keep the shine away since I absolutely love how it makes my skin look. 
You all know that I love the Alverde clear brow gel so I decided to try their tinted brow gel in the shade 01 Blond. It works exactly as good as the clear one does, but it also fills in my brows nicely. It's the perfect on-the-go product or just for those lazy mornings. 
I've been more or less wearing only three lipsticks this month. I mentioned the one from Oriflame here and I couldn't include it in the photo, since I forgot it in Ljubljana. The other two are the long-lasting lipstick from Essence in the shade 13 Love me and a mini lipstick from Avon in the shade Rose light.
I think that the Essence one is one of their new shades and it's a gorgeous, vibrant coral shade (it looks so much more bright in real life, it's a shame I couldn't capture it with my camera). I think this lipstick will be one of my go-to in Spring and Summer.
I already mentioned the Avon one a few times on here, but I completely forgot about it as I always carry it around in my handbag. One week I forgot to bring a lipstick with me to Ljubljana (still don't know how this could happen as I always have at lest two just lying in my handbag) so I was wearing this one the whole week and I fell back in love with it. For me, this is one of those my-lips-but-better shades since it's almost the exact colour as my lips.















I was obsessing over 7 blushes in February but in March, I've been wearing only one; the Catrice Gradation blush in C01 Waterloo Sunrise from their Crème fresh LE. I absolutely love it and the fact that you can get three different shade out of this blush is even more awesome. It gives your cheeks this radiant look without looking glittery, even though you can actually see some glitters in the pan, they just don't transfer to the face.
I've been also rocking only two eyeshadow combination. I already talked about Estée Lauder Raisins duo here, so you can read my thoughts about it there, I'll just tell you that I couldn't stop wearing it and I couldn't be happier that I decided to splurge on it.
If I wasn't wearing Raisins, I've been wearing Phloof! from MAC all over my lids or just in my inner corner with New In Brown from Catrice in the crease or all over my lid. I feel like this Catrice eyeshadow escaped from the NAKED 3 as it looks like a lost child of Buzz and Trick. It's also really pigmented and finely milled. 

















From L to R: Essence Love Me, Avon Rose Light, Alverde Blonde, Garnier 5sec Perfect Blur












Catrice Waterloo Sunrise (both shades mixed together, the darker shade, the lighter shade), MAC Phloof!, Catrice New In Brown

What have you been loving this month?
Also, I was thinking of maybe doing a separate post showing you my random favourites. I don't know if it would be a monthly thing, but maybe just once in awhile? Let me know if you would like to see that.

  4. Jaz pa te Essence šminke nisem jemala, ker se mi je zdelo, da je preveč podobna starim nude odtenkom. Ampak sedaj vidim, da je res krasna.

  5. Ravno u četrtek sem v Mullerju gledala dva odtenka novih Essence šmink in sem se zaljubila v odtenek Love me. In čeprav sem rekla, da ne bom kupila nobene Longasting šminke od Essenc več, je vseeno morala z mano domov :)
