Hi lovelies, I am back again with my monthly favourites post! Sorry, my favourites for April are slightly delayed, but I did love so many things that month that I just had to share them with you! So here are my April Favourites!
There were loads of beauty products that I loved throughout April, but I have managed to narrow them down to just a few! I really should stop spending money on makeup it is getting a bit of a problem. If any of you have any tips to stop this, please let me know in the comments haha! I won’t spend too long rambling on about these products as many of them have already been featured here on my blog!
Primark K-pop Sweet Cheeks palette
I recently did an entire review of this palette, which you can read here! I am not kidding when I say I have been using the highlighters every single day for weeks now. I literally love them. At first I started wearing Lemon Sherbet on its own because it’s perfect for your pale ass friend over here. Lately, I have been mixing all the shades (but not Bon Bon because that’s too pink for me), and they give such a beautiful glow to the skin without looking too glittery (which I hate). When I first tried the palette I wasn’t that fussed about the cherry smell but now I love it! It’s nice to have that little touch at 6 am when I’m half asleep doing my makeup! The highlight lasts all day, can be subtle or glowy af depending on your preference and blends beautifully. What more can you want with a cheap highlighter palette?
Primark Ps Radiant Primer
Okay, another product from Primark, I’m sorry! I can’t help it they’ve been really stepping up their game lately. If you follow my blog you will know that I do a ‘Testing Primark Makeup’ series, so it will be no surprise to you that there is a full post on this product here. I won’t go into too much detail but basically, this will turn you into a glowing goddess. Okay maybe not, but it will give you a lovely shine to the skin, perfect for the summer months. It only peeks through under foundation a little bit, but just enough to give a subtle glow, so you don’t look like you’ve just done an entire workout. It also makes my foundation apply much nicer as well, so for £3 you are getting an absolute bargain.
L’Oreal True Match Foundation
So this was a strange one for me. I actually bought this foundation a while ago, and absolutely hated it. So much so, that I didn’t touch it again… until a few weeks ago. My skin has changed quite a lot in the past few months, originally I was combo and had some oily sections but now my skin is dry af. I thought I would retry this foundation, and I am so happy I did. I can understand why it is lots of bloggers go to foundation. It gives enough coverage to hide my blemishes without looking too cakey, gives a beautiful subtle glow and lasts all day. Good enough for me! I am so happy I tried this foundation again, and I will definitely repurchase in the future.
Morphe Y6 Pro Flat Buffer Brush
Okay, my last beauty fave (I told you I had a lot). I normally don’t use brushes to apply my foundation, as I often find it makes me look cakey and streaky. But this brush has changed my mind. It blends beautifully, no streaks, and gives more coverage than my normal sponge. It is a beautiful gold colour and is really well made. The bristles are really densely packed, perfect if you like that full glam coverage look. Overall a solid brush and I will definitely be trying more of Morphe’s range in the future.
My Makeup storage
So My Makeup storage post has been gaining a lot of views recently (2.3k pins on Pinterest…wow!). I hope it has given you guys some inspo on how you could store your makeup and get your collection more organised! I don’t have much to say on this, other than I still love it! It makes doing my makeup so much more enjoyable, and, because I can’t see the products at the back properly, it is like a lucky dip what product I get. It has made me retry products I forgot I had (I’m looking at you L’Oreal). I now love doing my makeup every morning!
Okay, the last one I’m sorry. I didn’t expect this post to be this long! If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me complaining about running. In exactly 10 days (eek) I will be running the Manchester 10k for the British Heart Foundation! I was absolutely dreading the run at first, but after completing my first 10k a few days ago, I feel much more positive. It’s great to know that I can do it! I mean I may be dying by the finish line, but as long as I cross it I am not too fussed!
So those are my favourites! What have you been loving this month?
