March was such a fantastic month for me. There were so many great moments this past month. I turned 22 and I finally am a graduate. I have finally figured out a path in which I want my career to go. So overall this month has been the best birthday month out of these 22 years! It was a month of a lot of new makeup and new brand discoveries. So let's get right into all my favourite things from this past month.

1. HIMALAYA NEEM FACE WASH: This is such a classic product when it comes to cult beauty products from India. It is a very basic face wash with the goodness of Neem and Turmeric: two ingredients which help in preventing pimples. Since I had tons of weddings to attend this past month, I was wearing a lot more makeup than I am generally used to. So as a result I found some random spots popping up here and there. This face wash was just lying around in my stash of products and so I thought why not give it a try. And boy does it work! I takes a couple of days for your skin to clear up but it works so well!

2. L'OREAL LIPSTICK IN 257: I got this lipstick from a sale section at Target while I was studying in Australia. I recently used up my Rimmel Kate Moss in No. 19 which was the best everyday shade for me. So naturally after that one I was on a search for another perfect everyday lip shade. I looked into my million lipsticks and found this one. It is a perfect muted pinkish nude lip for this Summer. I'm so in love!

3. LA ROCHE POSAY CICAPLAST: My skin was not on a good behaviour this past month since I was wearing a lot more makeup and I was tired all the time as it was the last month of my degree and plus I had like a 100 weddings to attend. So I was on a lookout for something that would heal my skin while not being too heavy on the skin as India summers are the worst to wear heavy creams during the day. Then one fine day I found this little gem. I am going to post a full review on this next week sometime. But for now you guys should know that I'm in love with this little gem!

4. MAYBELLINE COLOSSAL KAJAL SUPER BLACK: I had been using liquid liner since about 7-8 months and as much as I love it, I was getting so bored of it. So as usual I was browsing the net for any new releases and I ended up buying this new release from Maybelline. It is the Super Black version of their ever so famous Colossal Kajal. This eyeliner is literally so black! It doesn't budge or smudge at all! The full review will be coming up on the blog super soon.

5. FREEDOM PRO 12 AUDACIOUS 3 EYESHADOW PALETTE: I have a soft spot for palettes. I think they are the most beautiful things ever. So whenever I get a chance I buy one. This is my latest edition to my collection and I am so happy with it. It comes with a perfect balance of shimmery and matte shades and they are quite pigmented as well. What's not to love?

6. RIMMEL STAY MATTE POWDER: This is such a cult product in the whole of the blogging community and has been a favourite of mine since about 4 years now. I think that I have mentioned this in a favourites post before as well. It does deserve all the attention it gets. It makes my makeup last so much longer without making it look cakey! That's the only thing I look for in a good powder and it's safe to say that this is one of the best one drugstore has to offer.

So as you can see this past month I discovered some new bits and re discovered some old ones. What have your favourites been this past month?
Let me know your favourites in the comments below.

Until next time,

  1. Excellent post, and I especially love your skincare recommendations. Lately over the past month I've been breaking out, mostly around my chin and upper lip areas, which is super annoying. I have no idea why it's happening, but the Neem Face Wash seems perfect for this! If only I could figure out a way to get it here in Australia...

    1. I think maybe you can try to get them from some India stores. There are chances that you might find it there! I'll try to look it up for you! :D

  2. I turned 22 in March too! Happy belated birthday and what great favourites! The rimmel stay matte is definitely a cult favourite every month for me I reckon! xx

    1. Oh hey! Happy Belated Birthday to you too! Oh that powder definitely does wonders! :D

  3. Great post, I love that cream from La Roche Posay. Kisses
