I know we're halfway through May already, but I've finally got round to posting my April Favourites! Throughout the month I discovered a lot of products I hadn't really been using as well as a few new favourites, so let's just jump right in shall we?
MAKE-UP GALLERY SPONGE
Most of you already know by now that my Beauty Blender had an unfortunate accident during whilst being cleaned, resulting in me losing it (I know, it was a difficult time). So I went to find something to replace it as soon as I could & discovered this little 'Sponge on a Stick' for £1. I thought it looks cheap, it is cheap, it might not even last a day. However this little guy has been blending away my concealer all month long. Once damp this is a great dupe for the Beauty Blender, especially if it's your first make-up sponge, it would make a great 'training tool'.
THAT GIRLS SMOKIN' EYE PALETTE
This is something I've had for a few months & wasn't too sure about it for the first few weeks, though low and behold it has been my side-kick for the ENTIRE month of April. From gorgeous everyday, Summer Vibes to Beautiful Smokey Night looks, this palette has something for everyone (though if Shimmer is not your friend, I wouldn't recommend)! Some days I even just use the white to highlight my eye for a more awake, radiant look.
I know I talk about this more than anything else in the world, but it has saved my life this year. I've talked a lot about the breakout I was having and was one of the worst I've ever had in my life, so I decided to pick up this little bottle more than my average routine which is twice a day. As my skin has been so oily which I believe to be the root of my breakout, I've used this 4-5 times a day when not wearing make-up to cleanse, tone & absorb the excess oils & it has worked, absolute wonders! Though I must stress, I don't recommend using this excessively, especially if you have dry skin.
SOAP & GLORY SUPERCAT LINER
I picked this product up at the start of April when I ran out of my Kat Von D liner & it's safe to say I'm obsessed. Grudging Sephora's shipping charges, I grabbed this product and works as a brilliant dupe. This is an extremely opaque liner with a very quick dry time, it takes about 10-15 seconds for it to settle, but what I loved most about this is the tip of the pen. The tip is very sturdy but versatile, it can be moved in various ways for different angles & looks but always springs back to the way it was when you bought it!
JEFFREE STAR VELOUR LIQUID LIP SHADE '714'
Another product I've had for a while which I also mentioned I wasn't very keen on when I got it, due to experiencing poor coverage. Though at the start of the month I exfoliated my lips, lined them, highlighted, applied this Lipstick then blended a little with another shade from this brand, 'Drug Lord'. My verdict? I'm obsessed. Completely in love with this lipstick, there are so many looks you can achieve but no matter what you do, it looks Neon, Crisp & Dramatic. This is not your average 'Cotton Candy' Lipstick!
That's it for this months favourites! What have you been loving throughout April & is it anything I should be trying out?
