April Favourites

For once I'm not going to start with 'Oh this month has gone so quick, I can't believe it' as I don't think it has, it's actually been quite a slow month for me!
I have four favourites this month, 3 beauty and 1 hair related:)

Too Faced Natural Eye Palette

This is a fantastic palette. It's a great basic palette to have in your collection, you can use it entirely for a look or in addition to brighter eyeshadows you have. It's also ideal if you are going away for a few days and don't want to bring too much with you. I love all the colours in it and I've used it pretty much every day this month since I've bought it. My next blog post is going to be a more in-depth review of it.

Nars Sex Appeal Powder Blush

This is such a pretty blush. I've been using it alone for a subtle flush of colour. It's a peachy pink with no obvious shimmer/sparkle/glitter in it. I think it makes a good choice for a daytime spring/summer look when you don't want to look overdone but still want that little bit extra. Sex Appeal also looks really nice layered over other blushes.

Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua Foundation

I have absolutely fallen in love with this foundation. It glides on smoothly and smells divine! I find it lasts all day and I'm happy with the coverage, it isn't too heavy. I'm also a hell of a lot paler than I thought as I'm shade B10 Beige-Pastel, I was watching some YouTube videos of people wearing it and I thought they looked quite pale but they were all using shade B20! I must look almost transparent without make-up on!haha!

Remington Pearl Wand

This is a curling iron but one without the clamp. It makes curling your hair so simple! I have really thick, wavy hair and even at that it doesn't take me too long to curl my hair. It comes with a little protective glove which is always good as singed fingers is never a good look! I have a wedding and a few fancyish events coming up in May so I'll definitely save money by not going to the hairdressers and doing my hair myself!

Finally, I promise to be better with my blog posts in the month of May, April was an epic fail regarding posting on the blog! Alas, final college assignments won out in the priority stakes but I'll have everything handed in on Tuesday, and then all I have left to do is my viva the following week, whoop!

Hope everyone had a good April and here's to a fantabulous summer month of May!!:D


  1. Great favourites! I am lusting after the vitalumiere aqua, it seems to be everyones favourite at the moment and looks gorgeous! NARS blushers are amazing, that one looks like such a pretty pink :) x

  2. If you need a new foundation definitely try it out! I got samples of it to make sure I liked it first though! And I am so in love with NARS blushes at the moment, I only have 2 so far so I definitely have to build it up a bit;) x
