April Favourites

Hellooo my lovelies,

Guess who's back and has finished uni for Summer? That's right meeee! I cannot express enough how happy I am to be back doing what I love! and what better post to come back with than an April favourites post!

 One of my big favourites this month has been nude lipsticks and my recent favourite has been MAC's 'Honey Love'. It's a matte finish which I'm not usually a fan of but it's very creamy and it's just my perfect brown toned nude. (Also I didn't realise that Marc Jacob's 'Honey' perfume was next to it until just now..what a coincidence!!)


 Another lip trend favourite I've loved this month is orange lips. As you all know from my previous posts, I've bought the orange lipsticks but never actually had the confidence to wear them. Well April was the month that I broke out of this and I actually got quite a few compliments on my lips! I've actually been loving both these two shades worn together, I feel that it just makes my perfect orange shade. I do like them both on their own but Revlon's 'Mischievous' is quite light and Rimmel's Moisture Renew 'In Love With Ginger' is a very bright red toned orange. So I apply the Revlon one then dab the moisture renew one on top and bam I have my perfect combo!

Left to Right:- Honey Love, Life's a Peach blusher, Rimmel's 'In Love With Ginger' and 'Mischievous' 

 Another favourite this month has been my 'Lifes a Peach' blusher by Sleek. It's just the perfect Spring/Summer shade and it's easy to apply in a rush without managing to put on too much which is a massive plus for me. I love Sleek's packaging aswell, it's very reminiscent of Nars and is small with a mirror which is perfect for on the go.


 I have a lot of skincare favourites for the month of April. Mainly because with my exams I've been having late nights and early starts and my diet has certainly not been the best. So my skin has been hating me and letting me know allllll about it by breaking me out!! My trusty duo to combat this have been my Effaclar Duo (+) and Sudocrem. I have a full review of the Effaclar Duo here and I'm sure by now you all know how amazing it is for your skin and handling breakouts. I've always been familiar with Sudocrem but never before have I used it on my spots but it's amazing for shrinking them and reducing redness but there will be a full post all about that on my blog soon!

 Another skincare must have this month thanks to my exams and massive under eye circles has been 'Origins GinZing eye cream'. It's just so refreshing and cool to apply under your eye after a pityful 4 hour sleep or throughout the day when your eyes are beginning to shut themselves against your will, this bad boy has been a saviour!

 My nail polish favourite this month is 100% got to be Huckleberry by Barry M. It is one of their new gelly pastel shades which I featured in a haul last month. It's very unusual and I don't have any other shades like it in my collection, it's like a duck egg blue but a pastel version of that. It's a very milky colour which compliments a tan amazingly and it's the colour I've been reaching for every time I painted my nails throughout April.

 This one will be no surprise to any of you and it's pretty much an always favourite but throughout this month and all the lack of sleep, I have a new found level of appreciation for this. No concealer would ever have been able to cover the bags under my eyes but this paired with concealer was enough to make it look like I hadn't spent half the night hunched over textbooks! If you don't have the touche eclat or are sitting on the fence about buying it- do it, just do it and I promise you you'll be thanking me!!

 This is a bit of a random favourite but my all time favourite body lotion is Johnson's baby bedtime lotion, yes I do realise I'm not a baby but this helps me sleep too!! It smells gorgeous, I can't even begin to describe it but it's just very calming and relaxing and helps you to de-stress and chill out and get to sleep. It's also very mositurising and helps you see where the saying 'skin as smooth as a baby's bottom' comes from!! It absorbs really quick too and the best part? It's only around £4 from Boots!!

 My last favourite this month is a fashion one and it's this statement necklace from Accessorize. I love, love, love this and I want to wear it with everything! It goes amazingly with dresses and tops on nights out, it instantly makes your outfit look more 'made up' than it is. It's also really great for everyday too, I especially love this with white jumpers because the white just makes the blue pop. It was expensive at £22 but considering the amount of detailing that's on it I don't think it's too unreasonable and it's not a specific metal so can be worn with gold or silver jewellery..bonus!

What things have you been loving this April?
