Beauty Favorites

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow

Benefit Puff Off

Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara

Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay Nail Polish in Mint For Life

Another month has slipped through my fingers and as much as I love the thought that summer is one step closer, I can’t help it but feel like this year is already slipping through my fingers. Things happen so quickly that I cannot fully appreciate most of them and I honestly feel slightly overwhelmed. Today is the day Alex (my boyfriend) and I are getting the keys to our apartment and I am feeling all kinds of happy and excited. We are now the proud owners of our first home and the feeling is honestly incredible. I am really looking forward to decorating everything the way we like it, buy cute kitchen utensils, get our first sofa, choose the bathroom tiles etc. It’s those little things that make the whole experience so special and I am super excited to share our journey with you!

Okay, I will stop rambling now and focus on the important stuff – sharing my March most-loved beauty bits. Some brilliant products that work a total treat have been found and now my skin is beautifully cleansed, my under eye area is well ironed, my lashes are longer then ever and my cheeks and tips are graced with gorgeous spring shades. Oh boy was it a fab montnth!

The Body Shop Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil // here
New skincare favorite right here. I cannot believe how long it took me before taking the plunge and getting this cult blogger favorite! As usual I hopped late on the bandwagon but I bloomin’ love the results and there is no going back now. Since using the Camomile Cleanser my Bioderma has been put on the bench and now this is all I use to remove my base and eye makeup. This cleansing oil completely changed the makeup remover game for me and I love how it gets rid of every last bit of makeup (yes that stubborn waterproof mascara too) without leaving oily residue. The texture is just dreamy and once it’s wiped off with muslin cloth the skin feels nourished, clean and glowing. And all this in under three minutes – love love love.

Benefit Puff Off* // here
I will be honest here and say that when I first tried Puff Off I wasn’t wowed. I quite liked it, the concepts seemed cool but it wasn’t anything mind-blowing and something I’d say you need in your life. However, after being ill for well over two weeks and with my dear friend insomnia making an appearance, Puff Off grew on me and we really bonded. I pop it in the fridge overnight and the next morning the salmon toned soothing & cooling gel with fun iron applicator literally irons away those creases and kisses the puffiness goodbye. My under eye area looks brighter, the wrinkles are smoother, the skin is well hydrated and the cooling sensation is the best morning pick me up. Oh and my concealer looks kick ass on top as well; it’s official - I am sold!

Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara // here
I got to try quite a few mascaras over the past four weeks and after Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye (here) proved itself to be quite the disappointment, this Max Factor babe was a pleasant surprise. Even though it’s branded as ‘volumizing mascara’, I’d day that it actually performs better on the lengthening front and it makes my lashes look from bare-there to extra long and beautiful. Review is coming your was very soon so I won’t spoil you with too much details but I’ll say that it separates like a boss, holds curl perfectly, does add a touch of volume, hangs around for yonks and it’s completely clump-free. Little winner for days when I am after a more natural look and want my lashes to be super long and fluttery.

Revlon Highlighting Palette in Rose Glow // here
I talked about Rose Glow in my Spring Beauty Essentials post here but since I’ve been wearing it non-stop lately I thought it’s earned yet another mention. It doubles as highlighter and a pinky blush and I love how it instantly perks up my complexion by adding all the right amounts of color and shimmer. It’s not super glitter-laden and the shimmer is very finely milled and wearable. Rose Glow makes the skin look seriously dreamy and I love how dewy and healthy it gets once this is dusted on my cheeks. The palette has beautiful creamy texture that just glides on without being chalky or look powdery - score. The pink-y nude shade is to die for as well and I even like to pop some of it on my eyelids for a nice veil of color. Try it – it does look beaut.

Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay in Mint For Life // here
I am going mint tips crazy at the moment and the gem that has been applied more than three times in a row for the past month has been this Maybelline stunner. The shade is everything – creamy, pastel, bright and happy and it reminds me of the sea (triple bonus points for that one!). On the nails Mint For Life is as close to Essie Mint Candy Apple (here) as it could get but the Maybelline offering is a bit lighter and more blue. Mint For Life makes my hands look clean and tan and the color is just a people pleaser in terms of complimenting different skin tones. The thing that made this beauty a firm favorite though is the formula. Oh my, the formula. It’s just brilliant. The polish is super rich and opaque and you need only two thin coats to get the color even. It dries within seconds and the nail hugging tapered brush makes the application a child’s play. And the longevity? Well that’s the best part and Mint For Life literally stays put for a solid week! True story.
