April Favourites 2017

I can't quite believe we're already a week into May. The last thing I remember I was shopping for holiday clothes and now I'm back in miserable London wrapped up in my dressing gown because it's that cold. Anyway, today I wanted to talk about all of the beauty products I was loving in April.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara - Sample
If you're looking for super thick, voluminous lashes then this is the mascara for you. The brush is quite long and the bristles are really short which makes it so easy to get right into the roots of the lashes. One coat is all you need with this mascara but if you want to amp it up for night time you can definitely do two!

bareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo - £28
I absolutely love this duo. The matte powder is great at setting the face without looking heavy or obvious and the glow powder is perfect for adding a subtle sheen to the skin. Sometimes I'll mix the two together when I want a really natural finish. The size of the compact is great for travel and there's even a mirror which you can use for touch ups throughout the day. 

The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi Protection Essence SPF50 - £16
I know some people have had issues with the scent and alcohol content in this product but I personally love it and will definitely repurchase it once it's finished. It has an extremely light texture which absorbs straight away unlike other high factor SPFs and offers both UVA and UVB protection.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick - 630 Velvet Beige - £6.99
The formula of this lipstick is so smooth and creamy, I could apply it all day long. It's a super pretty pinky/brown shade which works for just about any occasion. Everyone needs this colour!

Happy Place Cosmetics Chocolate Brownie Lip Balm - £3
When I heard Kirstie was launching lip balms I was dying to get my hands on one. Naturally I went for the chocolate option whilst Hubby went for bubblegum. It has a gorgeous buttery texture which leaves the lips feeling super soft and hydrated. 

E45 Derma Protect Fast Acting 24H Spray Moisturiser - £6
Even though my eczema is gone (touches wood), I still like to use E45 as it's the only thing that actually calms and soothes my irritation. I can't use traditional thick creams so this new spray version is an absolute dream. 


Thank you so much for reading!
