March Favourites

I have so many favourites this month! After being in a make-up rut for months I've finally branched out and am using new products again. I've even been wearing eyeshadow most days!
Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in Eastend Snob - After not using them for years, I've developed an obsession with lip liners. Eastend Snob is currently my favourite. It's a mlbb shade, applies smoothly and lasts for ages. With my Victoria's Secret lip plumper over the top I'm good to go.

Sugar Venom lip gloss in Carys - Sugar Venom are a new Australian brand who sell mineral lip products. I found them on Instagram and couldn't resist buying a gloss and lip balm. I have a review coming up but suffice to say I love them both.

YSL Rouge Volupte Tint-In-Oil -As soon as this was released in Australia I bought it. It's not what I was expecting, it's better. I thought that it'd be a rather thin, oily textured product with very little colour payoff but I was wrong. It feels like a medium thickness gloss, it has decent (sheer) pigmentation and leaves a stain after the product has worn off.

Victoria's Secret Lip Plumper - It's very cruel that the only Victoria's Secret shop in Perth is at the airport and even crueler that it opened mere weeks after we'd left Perth. Because of that, I've never been there. Fortunately for me, Tiger keeps me supplied with their products. The lip plumper is one of the first products he bought me and it's lovely. The colour is pale pink, which on me looks clear. Unsurprisingly it doesn't plump but it smells good and lasts a few hours before I need to reapply. 
Born to Balm Killa Vanilla lip balm - There was a major panic in my house a few weeks ago when I couldn't find my Born to Balms. Thankfully I found them very quickly, but I'm sure I aged a few years during the search. These are one of my favourite balms, you can read my review here.

Kmart Body Polish - At only $4 these are the bargain of the year. If you are a fan of sugar/salt scrubs get down to Kmart asap. I've used Jasmine and Cherry Blossom, they both smell beautiful.

Lanolips Antibacterial hand cream - You all need this! When I had Chai I hunted around for an antibacterial hand cream or a hydrating hand sanitiser and they don't exist in Australia. I had one that I got from Bath and Bodyworks, but couldn't easily get hold of it. Now, finally, Lanolips has released one and it's awesome. If you are someone who's frequently using hand sanitiser, get this instead, it's much kinder to your skin.  

Crabtree and Evelyn Honey lip salve - I ordered from Myer a while ago and needed something to push me over the $100 mark so I'd get free shipping. If it wasn't for that I would have never considered this balm as I don't like honey. Surprisingly this is a beautiful balm. The scent is lovely, it's very creamy and hydrating. I normally use a different lip balm every day but I've been using Honey Lip Salve and my Born to Balm to the exclusion of everything else. That's unheard of! In short, lip balms addicts need this balm. I'm going to be buying backups!

Shore Soap Company Green Tea moisturiser stick - This is another purchase from Natural Supply Co so of course it's awesome. Solid lotion sticks are great for lazy people like me. I just rub it onto my skin and that's it. No rubbing in, no trying to get the right amount out of the tube, just rub it on and you're good to go. Added to that, it smells gorgeous. Winning. 

Givenchy Magic lip and cheek balm - I'm not sure if this is still available, I got mine on Strawberrynet ages ago. It's one of those "adapts to your perfect pink" things and I love it. I can use it as a lip gloss and a blush, it gives the perfect flush of colour. Here's hoping it's still available as mine is getting low. 

Dolce and Gabanna Light Blue perfume - This has been my summer scent, it's so gorgeous and fresh.

Sugar Queen body scrub in Lemon Cheesecake* - This smells edible! It's the perfect mix of sweetness and tart lemon, exactly like cheescake. Sugar Queen Body Scrubs are my latest scrub find. They are Australian made and have that wonderful level of scrubbyness that I love. I'll be doing a full review soon, however if you're impatient you can check them out here.
Sunsilk Perfect Straight shampoo and conditioner* - As a poo and dish snob I'm very surprised to be including these in my favourites but they really are amazing. They make my hair so straight and smooth. I usually have lots of flyaways but since I've been using this my hair is really smooth even when I don't blow dry it. Even my hairdresser noticed!

Puretopia Gentle Exfoliating face scrub - I've found my new holy grail face scrub! Unlike body scrubs, I like my face scrubs to be gentle and that's exactly what this is. It's in a gel base with just the right amount of beads to exfoliate effectively. The beads are smooth and non scratchy. I've already purchased a backup!
