March Favourites + YouTube!

Hi guys. I’m actually doing a monthly favourites post- aren’t you all proud!?

First things first, however; I’m venturing into YouTube! I tried once way back before I changed this blog round but I never got much further than an overly-long E.L.F. haul video. However, this time I’ve downloaded Windows Movie Maker and got the hang of the basic editing tools, so all I need to do is save the money for a decent camera and I’ll be off! Luckily my laptop camera isn’t actually too bad so I should be okay in the meantime! You can find me at /smaugishvlog; I have two videos up at the moment (a video of this and my next post, and The British Tag), so have a look and let me know what you think!

Also, I’m excited and wanted to share with you why! I was lucky enough to get my hands on a ticket for a Beauty Insider event at the Urban Decay counter at my local House of Fraser. They cost £5 and were strictly limited so when I was purchasing my Naked 2 and the girl mentioned, I grabbed one for myself and one for my mum. It’s on Thursday and you can bet I’ll be sharing it all with you!

Now onto business- my March faves!

My makeup faves for this month include the Models Own Blending Sponge, L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara, Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot powder, Eyeko Skinny liquid liner and the L’Oreal Superliner Brow Artist brow pencil in Dark Brunette.

The blending sponge has revolutionized my makeup routine; I’m so glad I’ve finally mastered it! By using this, I can get a flawless and full coverage finish that doesn’t look cakey so it’s absolutely invaluable when it comes to wearing heavy duty foundations like my Estee Lauder Double Wear. Miss Manga is a mascara I recently acquired and really like! It’s super black and gives me the exact look I like from my lashes (big and sooty and dramatic); I’m interested in trying the new Punk version! The Soap & Glory powder, whilst much hyped, is one of my must-have products. I’ve hit pan and even though I’m planning to purchase a MAC Mineralize Skin Finish when mum and I hit Oxford Street this holiday, I will definitely have to repurchase this one. Even though my favourite liquid liner of all time is the Soap & Glory Supercat, I’ve used this Eyeko liner I got for free with a magazine quite a lot this month. When they say ‘Skinny’ they mean skinny! It’s really easy to get a precise, delicate line and flick with this one so even though I’m not sure I’ll be repurchasing/replacing my Supercat, I really like it. Finally, the Superliner brow pencil is an almost daily product for me. I found an MUA Power Brow in my make up draw that was unopened so I think I’ll take this pencil with me for touch ups. It’s dark without being ridiculously so and once it’s on, it’s on. It doesn’t want to smudge or anything!

I also have three non-makeup favourites this month! Illamasqua Freak EDP is one of my favourite perfumes and I’ve been wearing it lots this month. I’m a bit of a scent fiend, though! The Dresden Files series by author Jim Butcher are some of my current (and possibly all-time) favourite reads. I end up so engrossed by them, and I love the central character of Harry Dresden. I’m not very far into Dead Beat, the seventh novel, but so far so good! Finally, I’m loving Americana-style paisley bandanas! I pull my hair into little pigtails (fyi I am loving this length but also considering going an inch or two shorter come my next trim!) and tie this around and it just looks awesome. I love it!

So that was my March favourites! What did you use lots last month?
