March Monthly Favourites, Monthly Beauty Favourites, Beauty Blogger Favourites.jpg

Another month has come to an end (madness!) so that can only mean one thing - its monthly favourites time! I absolutely love writing these posts and reflecting on what I've really enjoyed using for the past few weeks! There's quite a nice little selection of makeup, skincare and haircare this month so grab yourselves a cuppa and keep reading. You know me, I'm a chatterbox!

Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray | Link
The beauty world has gone mad for texturising sprays in the last few months and it seems Oribe's Dry Texturising spray kick started the trend! Now although I'd love to try the Oribe spray after hearing all the hype surrounding it, its safe to say that spending £30+ on a hair spray is something I don't intend on doing, ever. There's expensive and then there's plain ridiculous - especially when there's so many cheaper copies around like this one from Charles Worthington. I've been really enjoying using it on the ends of my hair recently to add a bit of 'oomph' and texture. Its great for someone like me who is really lazy - I don't have time to straighten or curl my hair to perfection every morning so a few spritzes of this and I'm good to go! I'll be posting my full review of it soon so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation | Link
I know, I know, I'm totally late on the bandwagon with this one. This Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation has been a blogger favourite for a couple of years now but I've only just got round to trying it. The reason for this is because I originally bought the 'Healthy Mix Serum' version and didn't get along with it at all. I realise the two are different but because I didn't like that one (the coverage was poop and it was too runny), I was always put off trying the original version. However, after admiring my cousin's skin recently and asking her what foundation she used, she told me it was healthy mix and after seeing how great it looked on her, I decided to give it another go! I'm so glad I did as let me tell you, I've been totally missing out. I won't say too much as I plan to do an in-depth post about my favourite drugstore foundations soon but what I will say is I'm really impressed with the coverage, consistency and longevity of this foundation. It definitely lives up to its name and makes my skin look really healthy - I love it!

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist* | Link
Jurlique is a brand I've only just been introducted to but I'm absolutely loving it. Everything from their amazing packaging (how cute is this glass bottle?) to their natural ingredients is spot on. I've been using the Rosewater Balancing Mist after cleansing or when my skin needs refreshing and its just lovely. I'm not usually a fan of rose scented products but this one isn't too overpowering and it works wonders at perking up my complexion and giving me some radiance.

Bourjois Beauty'full Volume Dark Khol mascara* | Link
When I first tried this mascara, I wan't convinced by it at all. I was slightly confused by the odd brush - as you can see from my photos, its quite an unusual shape. I also didn't think it did much in terms of thickening my lashes which is something I always look for in a mascara. However, since persevering with it and now its dried up a touch (I always prefer mascara when they've dried up a little), I think its fab. Although the ususual brush can be difficult to get to grips with at first, its actually really good for getting all of those little lashes you can't usually get with a standard brush. I also find it really great for my lower lashes as I can use the tip of the brush to seperate and define them. I wouldn't say this is my favourite mascara of all time but its definitely the one I've been using most this month and for that reason it deserves a mention!

Revlon Matte Balm | Elusive | Link
I recently bought a few of Revlon's new matte and lacquer balms and I've been wearing the shade Elusive, a pretty dusky pink, none stop since I bought it. What I love about this shade is that its a very wearable 'my lips but better' kind of shade. It looks great during the day with a simple eye and I can imagine it looking great in the evening too with a heavier eye look. I also love that although its a matte formula, its really hydrating and creamy - something I've never come across in a matte lip product before!

NUXE Reve De Miel Lip Balm* | Link
Another blogger favourite that I'm late on the bandwagon with is the NUXE Reve de Miel lip balm. Regarded as a holy grail lip product by many, its something I'd always wanted to try but never got round to. However, I was kindly sent it from Escentual recently, along with some other French goodies and I've been using it every day since. It has a very thick consistency so it might not be to everyone's taste but I personally love it as it hydrates my lips like nothing else! I also love that it has a matte finish as its great for popping on before my lipstick. It also smells like honey - divine!

Rihanna 'Rogue' Perfume* | Link
Okay so I'm totally rubbish at describing perfumes - how on earth do people describe a scent in detail? For me, it either smells good or it doesn't. This Rihanna perfume is definitely on my 'smells good' list and I've been reaching for it every single day. If I were to try and summarise the scent I'd say its very sensual and sexy - not that I'd expect anything less from Rihanna! Its definitely a great evening scent as its quite strong and it has the perfect mix of sweet and musky notes. Its definitely one worth sniffing - I love it!

Have you tried any of these products? What have you been loving lately?

Lots of Love,


  1. Totally with you on the CW spray! Love that stuff so much. Also really like that Revlon balm too. I've used my Nuxe balm a couple of times but it is very thick like you say, will keep on with it though! Now after reading this it's time to add Healthy Mix to my list :) Great bunch of favourites! :)

  2. Great pics, I love the Bourjois foundation and I still yet have to try the Nuxe lip balm ... it really sounds like the solution to all lip problems :)

  3. I'm so with you on the healthy mix foundation! I used to absolutely love it and I'm not too sure why I swayed away from it!

  4. That rosewater mist looks lovely, such cute packaging too! xx

  5. The Charles Worthington Texturising Spray and Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm are favourites of mine too.. I also love the Healthy Mix Foundation, although the one I have is in different packaging - plastic packaging rather than glass. I wonder if they have changed the formula?! x

  6. Really need to try the Rihanna perfume! I love her Reb'l Fleur one! And the Nuxe lip balm, sounds lovely! Great post :) xx

  7. Just having a good ol' catch up on your blog Kayleigh!
    I've missed reading blogs every day - been so busy with writing my dissertation! eek!

    i NEED to try the Nuxe lip balm! I've had my eye on it absoloutely ages and although it seems like a love it or hate it product, it sounds right up my street! I've been a bit unsure about the Bourjois mascara too - i reckon i might give it another whirl as i always prefer them once they've dried up a little!

    Hope all is well with you honeypiee :)
    lots of love xx

  8. I got the Charles Worthington spray to try as I don't want to pay £30 for the oribe one! I'm liking it so far but feel like it is a bit drying! I really want to try the Nuxe lip balm though! X

  9. totally agree about the texturizing sprays - no way would I pay £30 + for one! Really want to give the CW a go now

  20. There's so much mixed reviews on the Bonjouris healthy mix foundation. Some say it's great but others say it goes patchy and is horrible! I'm not sure whether to go for the plunge or not! Xx

  34. I just started using the Nuxe balm also...I love it so much I ordered a back up right away & I never do that but ty his stuff is worth all the hype and the price..just found ur blog & love it so glad I follow not 1 for celeb perfumes but I think ill def hive rogue a sniff as Rhianna can do no wrong in my book when it comes to fashion except those jeans she made that looked like u had 2 pairs on..but other than that she iS STUNNING!!!! Have an awesome day♡♡♡ I look forward to CNN u in my inbox everyday:0)

  35. I absolutely love my Revlon Matte Balm in Elusive as well! It's such a wonderful everyday color and easy to toss in a bag on the go!
    Lovely Notions

  36. That Revlon Pencil is a darling! :) ooo the shade is perfect!
    That mascara brush is definitely very odd x

  37. The Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist sounds lovely!

  38. it's so funny how different foundation can be for differ people, because i LOVE the healthy mix serum and never got along with the original healthy mix until i've started mixing it with another foundation (rimmel wake me up) which gives it a bit more lasting power on my skin. the nuxe lip balm on the other hand, is an absolute favourite and i don't know anyone who has tried it who hasn't liked it. it's definitely my favourite lip balm i've ever tried.
