April Favourites 2016

You've probably heard this 100 times already, but I have no clue where April went! The weather has gone from cold and depressing to so warm, I can't even wear a jacket to go out because I start sweating... nice. Here is my monthly round-up of my favourite products. I hope you enjoy!



Makeup


Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
I had very high hopes for this primer, especially since it was my first ever Too Faced purchase. This primer is infused with coconut water and skin revivers to help give a nourished 'well rested' appearance. It definitely does what it says on the tin... well bottle. Under my foundation it makes my skin look plump, healthy and boosted. It has a gorgeous cream/gel texture that applies smoothly and leaves skin juicy and soft. My makeup lasts really well and my base can look dewy or matte depending on what I apply after. If you've been looking for a new face primer, I would happily suggest you try this one. 



NYX Tinted Brow Mascara - Brunette
Throughout May, I barely wore makeup, but when I did feel like making effort, I literally applied a bit of concealer and tinted brow gel. This brow mascara from NYX deposits just the right amount of colour without clumping or looking un-natural. It has a really nice small wand that catches the hairs perfectly whilst fitting along the brow shape. The shade I have will work on medium to dark brown hair. It's a good size for travel too!

Skincare


Pixi Skintreats Hydrating Milky Mist
With this gorgeous warm weather, comes greasy skin. Half way through the day, my skin starts to get oily and feels a bit bleh. This  mist helps to refresh and balance my skin but still hydrates at the same time. It comes out in a really fine mist. You can also use it before makeup for a nice boost. The bottle is quite light so it's great to keep in your handbag to touch up throughout the day. 



Nuxe Reve De Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm
This is the holy grail of lip balms. It smells like oranges and honey, has a gorgeous thick texture and soothes dry lips after one use. I use it in my morning routine, before makeup and in the evening. It's a bit pricey for a lip balm at £9.50 but you do get a huge pot of 15g which will last you a long time. 



Origins Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask
My skin has been drinking up any moisture recently which means I'm very dehydrated. Overnight masks are a great quick way to get the skin looking plump and fresh again. This one from Origins is my absolute favourite. It has a nice creamy rich texture, which leaves a film on the skin, giving you a radiant complexion the next morning. The best part is that it smells like a juicy fruit cocktail... mmm.

Don't forget to tell me your April favourites in the comments or on Instagram. Thank you for reading!
