March Makeup Haul

I put myself on a strict spending ban just after Christmas and was doing really well right up until this month (oops). But today I'm going to share with you a few things I've treated myself to this month, I've also included a couple of items I was kindly gifted by a company!

L'Oreal Infallible Total Cover Concealer Palette
As soon as I saw everyone receiving PR packages from L'Oreal, I knew it'd be something good and that I had to have it. I swatched a tester in store and couldn't believe how smooth and creamy the formula was! I'm so excited to try this out but am slightly worried that it might be a bit oily on my skin, but we'll have to wait and see!

Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze
Believe it or not, I only actually have 1 bronzer and that's a Makeup Revolution one. I thought it was about time I branched out a bit and opted for this Rimmel one. It has a slightly matte finish which I really like but doesn't give that 'dirty' look. I think this was only about £4 too so an absolute bargain!

Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
This palette is something I've wanted for ages but I've just never got round to buying. Now that I finally own it, I can't wait to create loads of different looks with it. I already have the blushed nudes palette which I LOVE so hopefully this one has the same creamy texture and blend-ability.

Maybelline Matte Me Powder 
After relying on my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte powder for the last 7 years, I thought I'd try something different. I did originally want to try the Fit Me powder but my local Superdrug didn't have my shade so I went for this one instead. As far as I'm aware, it's basically the same as the Rimmel one so I suppose I can't really go wrong since I love that one so much!

Makeup Revolution Chocolate & Peaches Eyeshadow Palette
Makeup Revolution have been at the centre of a 'scandal' recently with Kat Von D, and while this does have a lot of similarities to the Sweet Peach palette from Too Faced, I really like it. I think brands charge a stupid amount for their products at nearly £40 for an eyeshadow palette so this being £8 was right up my street!

I had a little 'pinch-me' moment not long ago when I was approached on Twitter to review some products, realising that I was actually getting somewhere with my blog. Now obviously it's not about all the affiliate links and free stuff, but that is a good bonus and shows that you've worked hard to get where you are.
I was asked by Lisa Blur London to pick a couple of their products to review so I picked out a gorgeous deep red lipstick and a dusky pink blusher.

Lisa Blur Xtreme Lipstick in Vino Noir
The lipstick shade is right up my street, if I'm not wearing a nude I'm wearing a dark red. It applies to the lips a bit lighter than I thought it would but is still a stunning colour. It's a matte lipstick but is super hydrating and lasts all day and night!

Lisa Blur Blush in First Blush
I really like the packaging of this blush, with it having a screw on lid. The shade is a really nice dusky pink with gold glitter, but it's not too intense that you sparkle all day. It is very pigmented and you barely need any on your brush when applying! I can already tell I'm going to be wearing this blush non-stop now that we're into Spring!

So that's all the makeup bits I've bought this month, I hope you enjoyed reading. I'd just like to say a quick thank you to Lisa Blur London for gifting me their products to review! What have you bought recently?

    1. Both eyeshadow palettes are super pigmented and blend really well, I'd definitely recommend both of them! X
