Another month, another monthly favourites post. I don't know how many times i have started a monthly favourites post saying that but as always i am fashionably late with the favourites post again.
In the month of April i've gone back to some old favourites of mine, after looking through my make up drawers the other day and realising how many make up products i have purchased and never used, so i decided it was time to change up my make up for the month and discover some old but goodies.
Starting with the non-beauty side of things, i have been loving wearing chunky bracelets again especially when paired with this mint green watch i got from New Look a couple months back. I picked up the watch for work as i'm constantly moving around and bashing my wrists left right and centre and thought this watch would be great as it's pretty cheap and i won't feel as bad if i end up breaking it, plus i love the bright mint colour and it's quite a pretty watch to.  
The chunky bracelet i picked up from Bijou Brigette which my sister used to work at but unfortunately the shop closed down, i only got this bracelet for a few pennies as i was lucky enough to pick it up in the clearance sale and got this bracelet along with a load of other jewellery at 75% off!
Next is one of my all time favourite perfumes and it's the Miss Dior Eau Fraiche Eau De Toilette* which i'm also currently giving away - see giveaway here
I adore this perfume and this is possibly my signature scent, every time i spray it on myself i always get compliments on it. I wrote a review on this perfume to so if you want to read my review - see review post here.
For eyeshadows i have been loving the Lily Lolo Eyeshadow Quad in Molten Bronze*, i specifically love the brown and gold shades in this mini eyeshadow quad. The eyeshadows are so pigmented and creamy and blend so nicely to. I also wrote a review on this eyeshadow quad if you want to read more about it - see review post here.
Another love which i have not only just loved for the month of April but since i first got my hands on it back in December, this was a Christmas present from the mother in law and i've used it every single day since. (well, not everyday.. just the days i wear make up).. I love the NARS Blusher in Orgasm as it gives me a healthy looking glow on the skin and instantly adds this pop of colour on the cheeks and it's extremely pigmented so you only need a touch of this and your good to go.
If you've been a long time reader of my blog you will know how obsessed i am with the L'Oreal Telescopic Waterproof Mascara - however i am so sad you can't get your hands on it anymore and i always result to ordering mine online on Amazon.
I discovered the L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Waterproof Mascara a couple of months back and though i can't say it's better than the other L'Oreal mascara, i do really really like it. 
This mascara has a slightly thicker wand and the formula i find is wetter than the other telescopic mascara, however it's still great at holding the curls in the lashes and lasts all day without a single smudge.
Lastly, there has to be some lip products thrown in the mix and the 2 i've been loving for the past month are the L'Oréal Glam Shine Stain Splash in Lolita, this is a great everyday natural shade i would describe this as a pinky nude and when applied onto the lips it's like 'my lips but better' shade. It's a non sticky lip stain which dries within a few minutes into a slight glossy' lipgloss. - See review post.
The other lip product i've been loving is the Rimmel Apocalips in Luna, now i had forgotten all about these and since my post on them it ended up at the back of the drawers so i was delighted to find them again and full back in love with this particular shade. The Luna shade i would describe as a warm peach shade, it's defiantly a shade that will match all skin tones and would look great on everyone.

What have you been loving in April?...


  1. I love the regular L'Oreal Telescopic mascara so will have to give the waterproof version a go!

    1. I've never tried the regular telescopic mascaras only the waterproof ones. My lashes are extremely stubborn.
