March Beauty Favourites

31 March 2015


Welcome to a new feature on Five Two Style! As the month is coming to an end I thought I would share with you all the items I have been obsessing over this past month, and it is also my first favourites post. Just thought I would add that these are not all of my favourite products but the ones I have fallen back in love with, and have been using a lot of lately. This list changes all the time, but some of these items will possibly feature again in one way or another.

Bodyshop All-in-one BB cream

I grabbed this in January as my skin wasn't agreeing with foundation which was really bugging me and I have been using this and setting it with powder since. The coverage is minimal but leaves you glowing. A good recommendation from a friend now I recommend it to you.
Benefit Posie balm
Surely I am no the only one that purchases things and forgets about them. I think I got this during the summer or something. This lip balm has just enough tint to wear daily but still makes you look glam without drying your lips out.
Bourjois Volume Clubbing Eyeliner
This is something I randomly reached for during this month and I had completely forgotten how great it was. It doesn't dry too quickly and doesn't clump at all. perfect liquid liner especially if you have a steady hand. It is also super black!
Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara
This is the best mascara I currently own, and if I had to choose one mascara to use for the rest of my life it would definitely be this one here. It lengthens and thickens without clumping and stays on all day without giving me panda eyes.
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Moisturiser
It's not too light or too heavy, and it also acts as a primer. Its an amazing cream to try and a staple beauty product. It took me a while to go out and grab it despite its many many good reviews but I have had this for a couple of months now and it is most definitely one of the best moisturisers I own.
Tangle Teezer Original
I own so many of these now I literally have one everywhere because I can't go without this. Having curly hair means that brushing is such a long task for me and whenever I use a tangle teezer  it saves me half the time with less the pain. Also it doesn't tug so much on my hair.
Bodyshop Strawberry Shower Gel 
My all time favourite. Subtle smell that is sweet without smelling so overpowering on the skin. Need I say more ?

New In: March Beauty Buys

27 March 2015


New season means new buys and right about now I seem to be running low on most of my essentials. This month posting my new buys has been totally tragic as I managed to lose my pictures twice! This is finally the third and final attempt (I hope) but I have already to started using half of the things and repackaged some bits also *cries*. I started off March saying I needed a new foundation and powder but it is now basically the end an I haven't purchased either.

Anyway this month I didn't go crazy and only bought things I have been wanting to get for a while without breaking the bank, but there is still so much on my list that I want and need. When it comes to MAC this month I had such a bad experience. My first order (which consisted of both Cinderella glosses and lipsticks) managed to get lost in the post some how and didn't turn up, luckily a girl on twitter messaged me when they accidentally landed on the Debenhams websites so I managed to snap up a lipstick and mascara, and whilst browsing I also managed to get my hands on the Dior Lip Maximizer Lipgloss that always seems to be out of stock. A trip to PAKS for some curly products lead me to find the amazing L.A Girl concealers and let me tell you, for £3.99 they are so good. They do not crease much and can be set with Ben Nye banana powder. After a load of oooing, umming and aahhing I decided I needed (wanted) some more real techniques bold metal brushes so I grabbed another four I thought I would use and I must say I do not regret that move one bit. The last product I have been hearing good things about was the Bare Minerals well rested under eye powder. It is meant to stay put and not budge so I can't wait to test it out.  So yeah, beauty wise it wasn't really a good month for purchases and pictures but at least I ticked off some items from my wish-list.

Below I've supplied you with a shopping list with links to everything purchased this month,  let me know if you would like a review on any of the recent products I've purchased and I will get right on it.

Real Techniques brushes in 300,200,201,202 (from £10 to £24) 

What beauty buys did you get your hands on this month girls? Remember, any face powder and foundation suggestions are very welcome ladies so leave me a comment with whatever you find works for you x.
