April Favourites.

It's that time again when I get to show you all the things I've been loving this month. And this month it's not just beauty!

Well well well, what do we have here?

Aussie Hair Insurance leave in conditioner.
Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 foundation - Light Ivory 40.
YSL Elle perfume.
Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in Taupe and Black.
17 Doll'd Up Mascara. 
Natural Collection blush in Sweet Cheeks. 
MUA Undress Me Too eyeshadow palette.

This leave in conditioner is such a life saver for me! It makes my hair soft and smooth and less tangly and it smells so damn good. I can't describe it but it makes me want to never stop smelling like it. It's also really lightweight and doesn't weigh my fine hair down or make it greasy - though I do only apply it to lengths and ends and avoid the roots. I don't think it's a heat protectant, at least it doesn't say so, and I therefore use a separate heat protectant as I blow dry my hair and don't need to subject it to any extra damage! Aussie is on offer in Superdrug at the moment so I'm going to stock up asap.

This foundation. Oh my. I bloody love this! I haven't needed to keep adding powder through the day, at least while it's been cold, and it's a good medium coverage. And pale enough for me! I won't say much more now as I have a review planned for this soon, I wanted to give it a good run before I reviewed it.

I have worn Elle everyday this month. It is my only 'proper' perfume and my super amazing boyfriend bought me the 50ml you see here for Christmas. I just love it, it's not subtle and it makes me feel confident and, goddammit, sexy. You heard it here first ;)

I reviewed this mascara a little while ago (read all about it!) and really, really like it. To be perfectly honest, I don't know if I will repurchase but for now all is fine and dandy. I am especially enamored by the face that it doesn't crumble little black bits all down my cheeks.


Next we come to the colourful things! I have been absolutley loving this blush, it's a great colour to throw on when I can't be bothered to coordinate colours and decide what will go with such and such an eyeshadow. Sweet cheeks is such a pretty pink and I loves it. Especially for a mere £1.99/

These eyeliners were purchased as part of my High Street Beauty Haul & Swatches and I have been wearing one or the other of Taupe or Black whenever I've worn more than one eyeshadow this month. Yay for Rimmel! I am also beyond thrilled that, once applied, these babies do not budge for love nor money until I remove them.

Lastly, the eyeshadows. I have been wearing the MUA Undress me Too palette a lot this month, my favourite shades swatches l-r being Firey, Tranquil and Wink. Love love love. I have been really keen on warm toned coppery shades with a pinky undertone. On the tangent of pink, I have been really craving the MUA pink trio and the Maybelline pinky colour tattoo. I think this will happen sooner or later... BAck to the point, MUA I love you and your £4 bargain Urban Decay dupes. Not that I have the Urban Decay to compare, but a quick Google search will tell you all you need to know.

That's all, folks!
