March Favourites | prettylittlewriter

Hello everyone! 
I have had quite a busy couple of months since I last posted! Not only have I moved house and in with my partner, but I've also changed jobs!

So I do apologise for being absent, but I am back and ready to start blogging again!

To begin, I thought I'd start by showing you all my recent favourite beauty products, most of which I've been using throughout March, but also into April.
First up is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation. With the price tag attached to this foundation, I was hesitant to buy it. When it comes to foundation, I'm a Rimmel girl through and through. However, I'd heard great reviews, so I thought I'd give it a try! I am definitely NOT regretting that decision. It's medium to full coverage, which I absolutely love, especially when I'm in the middle of a breakout. It's quite a matte finish, which means I don't need to use a powder to get rid of any shiny residue, and I'm much more of a matte finish than a dewy look anyway, especially at this time of year.
Overall, I absolutely love this foundation, and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
Next up is the glorious Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in the shade Diffused Heat. I have never used Hourglass products before, but they have always looked incredibly beautiful, and I was excited to get my hands on this product. It's a subtle mixture of blush and highlighter, a combination which compliments my fair skin perfectly. Blusher can be quite a difficult product to pin down with my skin tone, but this shade works so well for me. It reminds me of the dandelion blush by Benefit cosmetics, another of my favourite blushes.
Next we have the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser in the shade Porcelain. This product has been a god send for days when I feel rough and haven't wanted to wear too much make up. I've had the flu recently, and on days when I still had to leave the house, this has been my savior. It gives me just the right amount of coverage so I don't look too ghastly, it brightens my skin so I look more awake, and just gives me that sense of togetherness. 
Now this product, is seriously my most favourite product EVER to have graced my skin. I know this is a bold claim, however when I apply this Nip and Fab Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix to my skin and then apply my foundation, my skin looks PERFECT. Almost airbrushed it is THAT good! Now I'd normally never pay out a lot of money on a primer, therefore when I saw this item half price in Superdrug, I thought I'd give it a try. Now I have used it, I'll never go back! Along with my make up looking airbrushed, the staying power is incredible. My make up still looks almost perfect after a long 8 hours day of work!
Next is this stunning face palette by Charlotte Tilbury. I chose the Seductive Beauty palette, which has a smoky eye look, along with a gorgeous bronze and highlighter. Originally I wanted the Natural Beauty palette, as I'm much more of a natural face kinda girl, however, the smoky eye is very subtle, with dark brown shades rather than black. The bronze is what I've been using the most, as you can probably tell by the words being much more worn away than the rest, but I use this palette when I want a quick make up look that doesn't take too long to do.
And finally, is this absolutely beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Matte Lipstick in the shade Legendary Queen. Now, as a lot of you may already know, I am a bit of a red lipstick fanatic. When Charlotte Tilbury released this product, boasting of a deep, neutral wine shade that would compliment all complexions, I had to have it. I have been wearing this shade non-stop for the past month, I absolutely adore it.
