April Favourites

Seeing as we're already into the first week of May, I thought I'd post my April favourites!

Favourite Eye Products

The Naked Palette
I know eveyone loves the naked palette but I'm still so obsessed with it and I've had it nearly a year! My favourite shadows in April were Sin, Half Baked, Smog and Toasted.

MUA Professional Eye Primer
For me this is just as good as the much loved Urban Decay primer potion, and it's a fraction of the price. It's only £2.50 for 7.5ml of product! I find that my eyeshadow stays on for hours, looks more intense than without a primer and doesn't crease when using this.

L-R Maybelline Colour Tattoo, L'oreal Infaillible Eyeshadow

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Eternal Gold
I love this colour, It's a great intense gold. The texture of this product is great, it gives ample time for you to blend it out before it dries and is good as a base for powder shadows. I've been wearing this a lot recently blended up to just under the brow bone with virgin from the naked palette as a highlight.

L'oreal Infaillible Eyeshadow in Goldmine
This eyeshadow has such a weird but nice velvety texture, it's so soft and smooth. The colour is so beautiful and sparkly. I find it's best to apply with fingers.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara in Black
I LOVE this mascara! I think it's due to the amazing brush. This is a make up bag staple for me :)

Favourite Face Make Up Products

Technic Highlights Highlighter
This product is a total dupe for benefits highbeam, it's a lovely highlighter. I use this mixed with my foundation for an all over glow. I much prefer it to any of my powder highlights and it was only £1.49!!

Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil in FBI
I misplaced this concealer for a while, so when I found it again recently I was so happy! It's a great concealer, very pigmented, has a creamy consistancy and applies and blends very easily. I use it mainly for my undereye circles and around my nose.

Favourite Lip Products

Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Tint in Endless Blossom
This has been my go to lip colour for work and just a casual day time look. This colour is so easy to wear and it has a nice fruity scent. The balm is pretty moisturising too which is a plus!

BarryM Lip Laquer Crayon in No.2
I love these lip crayons, I have two. This one is a kind of bright cherry red, glossy and sparkly. It's so lovely to wear for a bright lip and I tend to wear a clear lipgloss over the top to make it super shiny and lovely :D

Swatches below :)

L-R BarryM, Rimmel 1000 Kisses

Favourite Candle

Jelly Belly Candle in Toasted Marshmallow
This candle smells absoloutly amazing! It smells like hot sugary marshallows, it burns slowly and lasts ages! I've really been enjoying this candle over the last few weeks, it's a very appreciated Christmas present. :)

Random Favourite

Original Source Handwash in Vanilla Milk and Raspberry
I love original source products so this appealed to me straight away, especially when I smelt it and it smells just like drumstick lollies! I love using this stuff and i'm stocking up while it's on offer. :)

Thanks for reading

    1. It's lovely isn't it :) I love their bubblegum candle too.


  5. Love the colour of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo. Where did you get the Highlighter from? Reading your blog always makes me want to spend money (that I don't have :( )x

    1. I tend to buy cheap stuff though! :D we'll have to go on a shopping trip this summer when you're back up north. :)

      I got the highlight from Bodycare, but you can buy it off amazon, I think it's about £2 on amazon, but still so much cheaper than the benefit one. I remember I tried the benefit one because you had it, it was either high beam or moon beam you had anyway. That was ages ago!

    2. Yeah definitely :) I'll let you know when I'm up north nearer the time.
      Ha I still have moonbeam but it's all thick and gross now, so am looking for something different to try. Will have a look for that highlighter. x

  6. The Eye Shadow Palette look great ,love the Colours!

    Lovely Greetings :)
