March Beauty & Fashion Favourites

I know, very long time no talk. The start of this year was quite a whirl wind. I started off the year by moving house, then working and saving like crazy for my holiday around Europe, and then I spent 5 weeks travelling around Europe. These products are things that were constantly being used while I was travelling around Europe and definitely my favourite products for March.
Formula 10.0.6 Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturiser: Apart from its annoyingly long name this moisturiser is AMAZING! I have combination oily skin, so a moisturiser that mattifies during the day is an absolute must. This moisturiser does not clog my pores, keeps my skin blemish free and mattifies. Everything I could possibly want in a moisturiser and its from Priceline, so it's cheap.

Maybelling The Rocket Waterproof Mascara: I know this isn't available in Australia, but I picked up another tube when I was in London and I continue to love it. If you can get your hands on it, it's a great mascara that provides length, especially when 2 coats are applied, and volume and doesn't smudge. Like the moisturiser it has everything I want in a mascara with a cheap price tag. Great for someone who spent their entire bank account in Europe.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser: This has been a favourite of mine for ages now. It especially came in handy after late nights and early mornings jumping on our coach or heading out sightseeing. It's not a thick texture but still provides great pigmentation and brightens up the under eye area.

Benefit Gimme Brow: On my trip around Europe mornings could be especially painful and sitting their precisely doing my brows was just not an option. This product was amazing for a quick way to make my brows look filled in and polished in a very short amount of time. I'll definitely be picking this up in the darker version when my bank account isn't so empty.

Nuxe Reve De Miele Lip Balm: I know this stuff is incredibly expensive for a lip balm, even if you purchase it in France like I did, but it's worth it. I was in Europe in winter, which is not good for already dry lips. I only use this at night but I find it gross sticking my finger in there during the day, and it stays on my lips hydrating them overnight. I will definitely spend the money to repurchase it.

Dailylook Leather Saddlebag: My Mum bought me this for Christmas in preparation for my trip around Europe. I wanted a cross body bag that zipped up and had a flap to help deter pick pockets. This one was perfect, not only did I not get robbed while travelling in Europe, but it could carry so much stuff. This bag went with me city to city and still looks amazing and was extremely practical.
Steve Madden Troopa Boots Black: Okay so they don't exactly look black anymore but they were before I left. These babies, like my bag, came with me everywhere in Europe. From sightseeing, to restaurants to clubs, I wore them everywhere! When you're spending most of your day walking you need a good pair of walking shoes and these were amazing. Despite being worn, I actually like them better this way. If only Steve Madden was still available in Australia. 

Well those were my favourite beauty and fashion items from March and from my trip around Europe. Stay tuned for some more posts on my holiday.
