And April is over! It’s now May. I remember being a child and time used to move so slowly but nowadays it seems to absolutely fly by. How am I on another favourites post already???
April has been more of a relaxed month than March was, and having two weeks off work was really helpful. It gave me time to relax and feel a bit like myself again. I’ve lost count of the new products that I’ve tried recently.
Read on for my favourites for April , and still no lipstick!
Mac Studio Fix Fluid
I have to be honest, this isn’t a new product for me. I used to use it religiously years and years ago whenever I needed a full coverage foundation. I stopped using it for two reasons: the smell (an ex told me it smelt like Playdoh) and I could never quite get the right colour. I’ve been colour matched to anything from NC30 – NC42 by sales assistants.
I recently had my makeup professionally applied and the makeup artist used Studio Fix Fluid. I fell back in love with it. It lasted for ages and gave me the full coverage that I currently need as clearly improving my skin is taking a very long time. And for the record – NC35 suits me perfectly.
Another reason I love this is that it’s more purse friendly at £23 for 30ml than some of the other foundations I’ve been wearing recently. Full coverage and saving money, I can’t really complain!
Mac Studio Fix Fluid is available here
Bobbi Brown Bronzer
I was so late to the contouring trend. And then once I started I was hooked on highlighter and bronzer. This bronzer is the perfect matte bronzer for me (I use Medium 2) and does exactly what I need it to.
It lasts for a long time and also doesn’t have lots of fall out, which I have found in the past. I love the strong, sturdy packaging (are you listening Benefit – why the box powders???) and the mirror is helpful to touch up on the go.
I absolutely love this product! Grab it here.
Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder Pink Glow
I bought this at the same time that I bought the bronzer as I was experimenting with highlighting and contouring. I have to say that I love the subtle pinky/beige glow that it gives my cheekbones – it’s so pretty!
Again, I love the sleek packaging and it also comes with a mirror which is perfect for touching up.
This is so pigmented and sparkles in the light. I’m utterly in love. Grab this here.
I’ve already written a more detailed post about this body moisturiser a while ago so I won’t repeat myself and bore you all. If you want to check out the review, just look here. I love this because it smells amazing and even though it is a light moisturiser, it keeps my skin very hydrated.
Next Reed Diffuser in Paris.
Full disclaimer here, I am utterly obsessed with home fragrance. I have reed diffusers and scented candles absolutely everywhere. I think it’s the combination of newly potty trained kids and cooking experiments that leave me paranoid about the smells in my flat!
I’ve wanted to try this scent for a while as every time I’ve smelt the tester, it instantly reminds me of perfume stores in Paris. I absolutely love this scent. It’s a glamorous woody scent and perfect for my bedroom!
I have to be honest, describing scents isn’t my strong point, so I am definitely going to refer to the box!
Vanilla Orchid, Silk Blossom
Incense, Tonka Bean
This is a strong scent and will easily fill a room, especially when turning the reeds regularly. It wasn’t cheap, I think it was £20 for 400ml but it does make my bedroom smell beautiful and we all deserve a treat once in a while.
Last month, I had lots of feedback where people said that they loved knowing what I’d been listening to during the month. I won’t lie, I’m still listening to a lot of Ed Sheeran. But I have varied my music up a lot more! My top 3 tracks of the moment are:
1: No Lie – Sean Paul and Dua Lipa
2: Issues – Julia Michaels
3: Chained to the Rhythm – Katy Perry
