Monthly Favourites | April ❤

Wow, I can't believe we are in May. How fast is this year going already?! It feels like Christmas was only a few week ago. Anyway, I have been loving a few things in the month of April...

 Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Highlighter (Luminous) - A highlighter has seemed to creep up on my past favourites but that is because I am obsessed with them. I am always on the look out for new highlighters to try. I purchased this one by Urban Decay a couple of month ago and especially love it for nights out. This champagne shade highlighter can be used on the face and also the body so it's perfect for highlighting your cheek bones, brow bone and collar bone! This is very glittery, so I tend to stay away from this as an every day highlighter but on a night out this looks gorgeous and pictures wonderfully. (Full review here)

❤ Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (Pebble) - This is literally my all time favourite foundation and has been for a while now. It applies flawlessly onto my skin, giving medium to full coverage which lasts ALL day. I like how I can use a small amount and build it up without it looking cakey! If you would like a full review on this foundation please let me know and I will happily do so. 

❤ Loreal Telescopic Mascara - I am so impressed with this mascara, I have only just recently purchased this when it was on offer in Asda for £8! I cannot believe I hadn't tried this sooner, as it is amazing! I have been using it every day since I got it and will definitely be re-purchasing when I run out. It never leaves my lashes looking clumpy, it just simply adds length and volume without looking too much. 

❤ Mac Lipstick in Creme Cup - This is a cremesheen lipstick therefore slightly glossy, highly pigmented and glides on the lips smoothly due to its creamy formula. This pinky nude has been the lipstick I have been grabbing for recently, I love it for every day or pairing it with a smokey eye on a night out! This colour is definitely a must have for spring/summer! 

What have you been loving in April? I'd love to know :)

  1. I've had my eye on creamsheen for a while. Such a pretty shade. I haven't tried Urban Decays highlighting palette yet although I'm a little pale so if it's sparkly I don't know how well that will go down haha

    1. I'd suggest maybe trying the highlighter in the shade Aura! Give them a go, they're lovely! A great eyeshadow too! x

  2. I adore Double Wear, its one I always fall back too!
