Here today with a very quick March favourites!
March 2013 favs!
Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation – I’ve been reaching for this foundation quite a bit over March and I really like it. I do have terrible skin at the moment but this provides a natural, medium coverage which is buildable. I still wear concealer & powder over the top, but I like the finish of this foundation and the colour isn’t too dark for me either! I have a full review of this coming soon, with before and after pictures!
Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara – This mascara does a faaabulous job of making my eyelashes look super sexy and defined. Although it is expensive for a mascara, I would definitely repurchase as I really like the way it lengthens my lashes without making them clumpy!
Smashbox Long Wear Mega Tint by Mimosa – I’ve been fully embracing the peach lip look throughout March and this baby has helped me to do that! This is a long lasting lip shade; it has a slightly odd formula, it applies like a liquid on the lips but dries to a lipstick. It’s love!
Wonder Oil – I adore multi-purpose products and this is fast becoming one of my favourites. I’ve used this citrusy smelling oil as a bath oil, hair oil and body oil and I really adore it. I have a full post coming up on this soon so stay tuned!
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser – A bit of a long story here; I went to my GP early March about my acne as it’s been really getting me down, making me self conscious and it’s generally been really bad! He prescribed me a cream called Epiduo (if it turns out to work I’ll let y’all know) and gave me a leaflet on how to use it. Acne creams dry your skin out, full stop, and the leaflet recommended using Cetpahil products to wash and moisturize with, so I went out and brought them! I really like this cleanser; it doesn’t remove makeup (you need another wash to do that) but it does leave my skin clean and not tight at all. I’ll write this up a full review of this soon too!
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera – I fell in love with this book as soon as I started reading it and it has made it’s way into my Top 5 Fav books. This is a story set in Prague, in 1970s-80s and is heavily focused on the lives of four main characters in the Communist period. It mainly follows the story of Tomas and Teresa, and their relationship (Tomas is a doctor and also cheats; has many mistresses). I find it really difficult to describe this book (or sell it to you in any sort) but it’s very philosophical and also contains a loottta sex.
I’ll leave you with a quote from the book
“When we want to give expression to a dramatic situation in our lives, we tend to use metaphors of heaviness. We say that something has become a great burden to us. We either bear the burden or fail and go down with it, we struggle with it, win or lose. And Sabina – what had come over her? Nothing. She had left a man because she felt like leaving him. Had he persecuted her? Had he tried to take revenge on her? No. Her drama was a drama not of heaviness but of lightness. What fell to her lot was not the burden, but the unbearable lightness of being.”
