April Favourites

Hey Lovelies, I say most months but April has definitely flown by can't believe it's May tomorrow, so here's my favourites for the month.

Beauty Favourites

The Sleek Storm Palette, it has gold, beige,brown, pink, purple, blue, green and black shades so it's a great palette to suit all occasions and has lots of colour for you, I've been using the goldy brown shades, I always love goldy looks for Spring and Summer. The palette is very pigmented and long lasting and has matte and shimmery shades. 

The NYC Sunny Bronzer, this is the perfect bronzer for people with fair skin like me and it's a nice bronzer, it's  completely matte with no shimmer and isn't a muddy brown. It's pigmented and long lasting and great for Spring and Summer. It's really inexpensive as well.

Accessorize Baked Blusher in Wowzer, it's a medium pink blush with lilac running through it. The blush is shimmery and it gives a gorgeous glow to the skin. It's very long lasting and pigmented.

Collection Shimmer Shade in Way To Glow, I like mixing all the colours together and it comes out as peachy orange colour and I then use the highlighter on top of my cheek bones, like it says in the name it is shimmery and gives you a nice glow. It is really pigmented and long lasting and inexpensive. 

Maybelline Eyeshadow in Gold Diamonds, is a gold with purple undertones it's an absolutely gorgeous shade and I love it and have been wearing it a lot this month. It's really pigmented and it is shimmery and long lasting.

The Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige as you can see it's a theme in this post I've been loving wearing golds and I've been wearing this under my lashline. It's long lasting, creamy and pigmented. Here's a full review here from a couple months ago.

MUA Lipstick in Shade 7, it's an orangey pink with shimmer but it's not that noticeable and is perfect for Spring, I mentioned it here in my top lipsticks for Spring. It's really inexpensive at only a £1, it's slightly moisturising and pigmented.

Beauty UK Lipstick In The Buff, is a bright dark pink, it's very pigmented and moisturising and have been wearing it a lot this month and is inexpensive and I also mentioned this in my top lipsticks for Spring.

As you can see they are very similar but MUA lipstick is slightly more orange and the Beauty UK is more pink.

Non-Beauty Favourites

Music- Glee-Outcast and  You Have More Friends Than You Know, these are original songs that Marley in Glee wrote and I really relate to the Outcast song, Jonas Brothers- Pom Poms, Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding-I Need Your Love.

TV Programmes- I've been really loving the Glee storyline even though they have been quite sad, The Vampire Diaries I've been liking getting to know about the originals and finding about Hayley and how Elena has changed. Broadchurch It's been a great series and I didn't know who killed Danny till it was revealed on the last episode of the series. Awkward it's a great show about being a teenager, finding yourself, love and decisions.

Film- Safe Haven is great, it's by Nicholas Sparks and so you can guess it's about love and It was amazing and you should really go watch it.

Book- The Perks of Being a Wallflower, if you saw in a haul this month, I got this book and I read it all in a few days and I loved it, it is nearly exactly the same as the film, I'm not going into huge detail because I'm going to do a book review on it soon.

Food- Pot Noodles, for my dinner I've been eating pot noodles and haven't had them in ages but they are nice and chicken I've been having all sorts of meals with chicken.

What are your favourites for the month let me know.

  3. NYC's Sunny Bronzer is by far my holy grail bronzer. Since I am really pale it's the perfect colour without being too orange, or as you said muddy looking. I've had it for quite a long time and only just hit pan a few months ago. Great product! x

    1. Yeah it's amazing, I've used it for ages but haven't hit pan yet :) xx
