April Favourites

My go to lip combo for this month and I imagine for the foreseeable future is the Essence lip liner and matching stick in 'In The Nude'. I've finally found my perfect nude! I wear them solo as well but they last a hella long time together!

I feel like I have a new lip balm on an almost weekly basis but for work purposes this Burts Bees Rhubarb balm has been my go to for a little while now. I have found with this that I don't even need it in my pocket to reapply, it lasts almost long enough for my four hour shift. I love how it isn't as sheer as you'd expect a lip balm to be.

I've decided I'm going to treat myself and get my lips done for my birthday in July. I've wanted it doing for years, I just need to find where I want to go. Until then I've been using this DuWop Lip Venom to create the illusion of fuller lips. I love this stuff. It tingles when you apply it so you can feel it working and it lasts a good cuple of hours. If only this was a permanent fix.

I've been powdering more consistently recently. I generally suffer with dry patches so powder isn't something I veer towards but I've been applying it with this Wilko Face Brush and my makeup has been lasting so much longer. This brush is sooo soft and the size means it gets the job done in seconds.

My uniform is a bloody nightmare for deodorant marks, even when the deodorant claims to be anti white marks. I'm running out of deodorants that I haven't already tried but this one from Mitchum was recently on offer in Boots so I picked a couple up. The yellow one is my favourite as it smells super fresh and clean. Bonus - no white marks!!

I recently ran out of my Frizz Ease serum and, as I'm on a spending ban, I had a route around in my stash and came across the KMS Tame Frizz. I really like this. It's quite sticky but  you don't need a lot of it and it's perfect for taming flyaways without looking greasy.

The L'oreal Paris Triple Protection Moisturiser has changed my skin completely. I was suffering from major dry patches but since using this they've all but disappeared. Also, big plus- it hasn't made me break out!

I've used every other Pearl Drops variation and never thought they were anything special but I've already seen a massive difference in my teeth from using the Ultimate Whitening version for just one week. I'm excited to see the difference in the coming weeks!

I've been fake tanning quite a bit recently. Obviously, tanning comes with the dreaded orange elbows if you don't exfoliate properly and I've been loving this Sugar Crush from Soap and Glory for that. It smells super sweet which isn't something I normally go for but it isn't overpowering and is the best exfoliator I've used. 

What were you loving through April?
