April Beauty Favourites

Well hello, I haven't done a favourites post since... November! And I miss doing them, so here we go. I have a lot of favourites that aren't just beauty this month, but I had so many beauty faves I decided to split it into beauty and fashion faves which will be a first for my little space on the internet! But for now, here are my favourite products that I've been using religiously this last month...

My most favourite all of the favourites is definitely going to be the Maybelline Better Skin foundation. I love this and I've been using it for a couple of weeks now. It's got great coverage, I wouldn't say completely full coverage but almost there, and I have seen my skin improve a little bit too! It feels great on the skin, and I finally found a foundation that matches and evens my skin tone perfectly.
With that I've re-discovered my Pore-Fessional sample tube by Benefit to smooth out my pores (and making me want to buy a full sized tube), my Seventeen Skin Wow! Highlighter, and my Seventeen Instant Glow Bronzer which I've been alternating for different looks over the last month. I've never stopped loving my Seventeen highlighter and use it mostly at the weekends, but I've been enjoying it a lot more recently during the week for a brighter and healthier look. The same with my Glow Bronzer, I've been using this to look a little more tanned and sun-kissed on sunny days.
Moving on, but keeping with Seventeen products, I've been loving the Cheeky Stamps! I bought the lighter pink one last year when it first came out, and loved that they bought out them in four more colours this year. I'm particularly loving the Cheek Stamp in The Cheek Of It, which is a pretty orange/bronze shade and just gives you a natural looking blush. I'll be doing a collective review soon if any of you girls are interested in that?
The Revlon Colorburst has become a new love in many beauty blogger's lives as well as my own. I've got three but my I've misplaced my red Lacquer Balm (Provocateur) somewhere and I can't find it :( Boo. Though I have been loving them lots, and bought the lacquer balm in Whimsical most recently, which is a pretty shimmery purple/pink! I've also influenced a couple of purchases of the Matte Balm in Elusive, a lovely girly pink that's just perfect for spring!
Lastly Eyes and Brow products. I've finally learnt the magic of filling in and shaping eyebrows! With ridiculously bushy and thick eyebrows like mine, they need a little taming. I've re-discovered my MUA Brow Kit and Primark's P.S. Love... Brow Pencil in dark brown! They've saved the day many a times, and both work a charm. I wish the Primark pencil didn't run out so quick because it's my favourite by far, and the MUA Brow Kit has only got one colour I use, but I still love them both. Now all I need is a little brow gel... any suggestions!? Last but not least I've been really loving a simple neutral smoky shadow look and creating it with a beautiful colour palette from the M&S's LOLA collection. The pigmentation is amazing and I adore the pearl white shadow the most as a base. This palette makes me want to buy into the Naked 3 palette even more than I already do... Just to have more amazing neutral shades, the amazing pigmentation and also just to own a high end eyeshadow pallete!

So those are all my favourites. Sorry if it's a little messy and all over the place, I've still not found a way of writing these up that I like yet. So writing it as I say it will be the way for now! What have been your beauty favourites this month? Do we share any?

    1. I love the matte ones too but I'm especially loving the laquer ones, bearing in mind I hate glossy finishes normally! x

  2. I'd be interested in reading a review on the cheek stamps :) x
