Hey Guys!
It's the end of the month and it's time for my favourites! This month just flew by for me. Time just seems to be flying by faster and faster as I get older. Point being, It's my birthday tpmorrow and I'm going to be 24! That seems so old to me... 24 is almost 25 which is almost 30! haha Do you like how I think? People laugh at me when I say that...but I guess it just matters how I feel, and I still feel young. This year I'm not doing too much for my b-day. Tomorrow I'm going to be going out for dinner with my man and a couple friends. Friday I'm going to celebrate my birthday and Easter with my family. I'll have a small birthday haul to post this coming weekend :) I already pre-bought myself some presents...that's how I justify my excessive shopping this month to my boyfriend..."But Charles...it's my birthday!" lol.

MAC Beauty Powder in "Shell": If you don't have this...buy it. When my skin is on the light side it's SUCH a beautiful coloured blush and when I'm tan it's a great highlighter! It's incredibly smooth and blends in so easy for a beautiful sheen and glow to my face. I've very impressed and the packaging was just too cute to pass up.

NARS Blush in "Lovejoy": A very flattering colour for tan skin. Someone asked me if it was too red, but it comes up a beautiful bronzey reddish rose. It is very pigmented and a little goes a long way. I look and feel very natural and put together when I wear this.

St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse: I've been using St. Moriz and then I tried this. St. Moriz has been compared to St. Tropez, but in my opinion St. Tropez is 10x better. Sure it is more pricey, but the colour and application just don't compare. I want to do a full review and comparison on these two products so check back soon if you are interested.

MAC Lipstick in "Peachstock": One of my new HG nude shades. It's a perfect peachy nude and paired with MAC "Freshly Frank" it looks very flattering with my skin. It came out with the Liberty of London collection, but it is a permanent colour at MAC Pro!

MAC Lipglass in "Frankly Fresh": This also came out with the Liberty of London Collection. It is my lips but better. It adds the perfect colour and sheen to any of my nude lippies. I'm not one to buy backups, but this is going to be a staple for me.

Zoya "Barbie" Nail Polish: A beautiful pink with subtle shimmer. The picture really shows the variety of undertones in the pink, but in most lighting the shimmer isn't as noticeable. This is the perfect "Barbie" colour in my opinion. To see it on my nails, click here.

Seche Vite Top Coat: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and affordable. My mani last a good 5 days before chipping or peeling. I use my hands constantly at work and this top coat allows me to get away with not having to re-paint my nails as often as I use to. It is very high shine and dries SUPER fast! I won't use anything but this Top Coat from now on. HG status for sure.

What were some of your favourite products this month?


  1. Haha, you think exactly like me!!! I am 24 in a couple of months and I am getting scared haha!

    Happy Birthday anyway!

  2. I'm going to have to check out peachstock, and Seche vite has been on my w/l forever! I am loving that lipglass too!

  3. i found the same thing with the st tropez and st moriz. the moriz one seems to leave me orange and is harder to smooth across the skin if you ask me :)

  4. great post! this MAC collection isn't out in australia yet but i've been definitely wanting to try the shell beauty powder!

    And i reaally want to get lovejoy too, but not sure if i should get it. x

  5. I always love reading your 'favourites' posts. We have really similar taste so I always see something I like. loving the look of the nail polish, MAC blush and lipstick!

  6. Happy Birthday from New Orleans, LA!!

  7. 100% agreed on HG status for Seche Vite. There should be a way to canonize HG makeup products!

  8. I've heard St. Tropez tanning mouse is really good as well, and want to try it!! Hopefully you will do a full review on it soon=) Great post xx

  9. love love love all ur choices!! the packaging from the London collection was just too cute!!! i recently found my nars lovejoy blush and fell in love again! thanks for sharing! i'm gonna do my march favorites soon!

  10. Happy (early) birthday!

    I actually purchased Peachstock after seeing it on your blog. :)
    At first I went for Ever Hip, but placed a second order, and it really is a perfect peachy-nude.

    I'm going to have to go to my local MAC counter and check out Shell now.. I'm trying to be good and save for MAC to the beach, but I really love the packaging on that powder!

    Hope you're having a good week!

  11. MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder is one of my favorites this month, too. It makes my skin look amazing! I really love the Liberty collection overall, but especially Shell Pearl, the lipsticks, and the lipglasses. I think the lipglass you featured is called "Frankly Fresh."

  12. I totally agree about Seche Vite, HG for me too - although it makes me change my polish colour more often as it makes it so quick!

  13. I like the look of the Beauty Powder in Shell, but have heard that it makes your pores look big. Does it do this with you? xx

  14. I love the Seche Vite Top Coat as well!! It's pretty much amazing. I think I'll have to try the Shell beauty powder!! Your earlier post on it caught my attention. Can't wait to see it on your face!!! :)

  15. Amazing list! I have added Lovejoy to my wish list. I love Shell Pearl too!

  16. I loooove nars blushes they are the best..
    i want the sache vite topcoat.. i think im going to order it right now from ebay

  17. those 2 lippies by MAC sure come in awfully cute containers!!

  18. i have been obsessing over Shell Pearl. totally agree its great as a light blush and highlight for our tanner moments :)

    lovejoy will probably be my next nars blush

  19. @Casey Aimee - I'm trying to save for "To the Beach" collection as well... I'm going to buy too much I think... I'm also wondering if MAC is going to be doing another "Sumo Sale" online like they did last June... if so, I need to haul big for that 25% off!

    @dontcallmejessie - I keep flipping the words around! haha One minute I call it Frankly Fresh, the next I call it Freshly Frank haha

    @India - I don't find it makes my pores look big at all.. I'd say swatch it for yourself just to be sure.

  20. I need Seche Vite, can't believe I still haven't bought it!

    I tried St. Tropez today at Blue Mercury (store with terrible customer service but it's around the corner from work) and it was beautiful!!! I love the smell and that's rare for a self tanner! I think I'll go back for the 8 oz mousse :)

    I can't wait for your review!


  21. Happy belated bday sweetie!!!
    Hope you had an amazing time!

    Great round up of favourites, you have a few products I 've been eyeing myself for some time...! ;)
