How is it almost May?! I honestly can't believe how fast 2015 is going.
April was a crazy month for me, between having my language orals for my exams, birthday parties and studying, it's been hectic. May is looking to be an incredibly exciting month with my graduation coming up and 5 Seconds Of Summer at the end of the month - you can expect blog posts on both occasions because I'm incredibly excited for them!
I didn't do a March favourites last month, purely because I was only using the same old products I'd shared on my blog countless times, so today I'm back with an April favourites as I actually used some new products for a change!
I've been on a spending ban for the last month or so, and it's going quite well, so I've been really utilising some forgotten about products in my collection for the last month.
I don't have very many favourites this month but I still wanted to do this blog post as I'd made a goal to do a few more favourites posts than I did last year!
Anyway, let's get on to the products shall we?
Rimmel London BB Cream in Light
I absolutely love this BB cream as it has all the qualities of a foundation without the heaviness. It has fantastic coverage, it's incredibly long-wearing and it leaves a lovely satin finish on the skin. My skin has been well-behaved recently so I haven't wanted as much coverage as I normally do, but I find that even if I want more of a full-coverage look, this is perfect with a little bit of heavy duty concealer on top.
It has a lovely summery scent to it too, but it's not overly perfumed, as I hate those BB creams that have incredibly overbearing smells!
I'd highly recommend the Rimmel BB Cream if you're on the look-out for a nice BB cream for the summer. It's excellent value at €8.99!
Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Concealer in Light 16
Tarte Pin-Up Girl Amazonian Clay Blush Palette
Bath And Body Works Pure Paradise Hand Gel
here from my US haul!).
As I was there in winter, they had a limited amount of summery fragrances, but this was one of the few they had. Pure Paradise, in summary, is summer in a bottle. It's a beautiful blend of flowers and fruits that just engulfs the room when you apply it to your hands. I'm surprised that I have any left - people queue up for some when I produce it in school!
Michael Kors Sexy Amber Perfume
This is just one of those scents that lingers all day once you put it on, and I get a countless amount of compliments when I wear it! The packaging is also beautiful. You may actually be familiar with the scent if you own a Michael Kors bronzer - I reviewed his beauty line last year and discovered that the bronzers are scented with this fragrance! The 30ml bottle of Sexy Amber is €50.
So they are my beauty favourites of April! I'm really looking forward to May, as I said earlier, I've got lots of exciting things coming up - I'm sure I'll be keeping you updated on those through the blog!
What are your favourites for April?
