APRIL Favourites!

Sunday, May 05, 2013

Hey guys, I'm back! I had a pretty hectic week of work and although I've still got a lot to do, I missed blogging too much aha! Anyway here are my April favourites, just a little late!

Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Satsuma
I know I featured this in my last favourites but this colour is just so nice and perfect for Summer. I would have never thought that an orange nail polish would be wearable but it really does seem to go with anything!

Essie Absolutely Shore
This is a recent addition to my collection after hearing Vivianna Does Makeup raving about it. It really is the perfect mint, I sometimes find some of the dark mints quite garish and really hard to wear. But this one is a gorgeous pale mint and it looks really lovely on the nails!

Sleek Blush in Suede
I've always been more of a pinky blush person however the past couple of months, I've been reaching for this peachier blush daily! Its quite a dark terracotta colour and I find it just adds a really nice glow to the cheeks.

MUA Eyeshadow in Shade 17
I've also been reaching for more matte eyeshadows this month and so I've been going back to my MUA neutral colours. You can probably tell how much I use this because I've hit pan aha, but it really does look lovely over my Taupe Maybelline Color Tattoo. It just adds a really nice definition to the eyes.

Revlon ColorStay Foundation
I've also gone back to my all time favourite foundation, I was starting to find this foundation a little cakey a couple of months ago however I started using it again a couple of weeks ago and I'm not sure why I found it cakey at all. It just gives a really nice flawless finish and is the only thing that really keeps my oil at bay!

REN ClearCalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask
This mask is a dream!! It literally is amazing. I only had two small samples of this and am gutted I've almost finished them, will definitely be repurchasing asap! (Read my first impressions rave here!)

Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil in Wasteland
I had almost forgotten how much I love this shadow pencil. And now I've finally found a cheap sharpener that fits it, meaning I can start using it again (Superdrug double barrelled one, amazing!). Its a really soft, creamy consistency and looks amazing smudged around the eyes for a subtle smokey eye.

NYX Blush in Taupe
Yet again, another re-favourite! I use this daily and I'm not quite sure how I managed not to contour before owning this, I love it. Perfect for us pale girls!

Avon SuperShock Max Mascara
This has to be one of my favourite mascaras. A really thick brush that just adds so much volume to my lashes. Will definitely be buying this over and over again.

Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate
And finally, I found my Pomegranate Lip Butter! I love these lip butters, this one has a lovely hint of colour to  it and I find they just sit really nicely on the lips!
