April Favorites

So I know it’s been a little while since my last post and it’s already May 3rd but I just love reading Monthly Favorites posts, so I wanted to share my favorite things of the month of April with you guys! As per usual it’s all make up but I do have one skin care favorite. But I don’t want to bore you with my ramblings, so let’s get right into it.

The Body Shop Seaweed Iconic Clay Mask

I’m a bit of a face mask obsessed person, to be honest. I used to have such nice and clear skin all throughout high school when all of my friends were breaking out and then once I moved on to University my skin went a little crazy. I’m guessing it was due to hormones and stress but ever since then I became obsessed with skin care and having a proper skin care routine. Now my skin still isn’t as good as it used to be but it has improved immensely since then. Face masks are probably my favorite skin care item and I try to do one at least once a week. I got this one at the beginning of April and have loved it so far. I really like the scent and I feel like it just calms my skin down after a stressful week.

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer

This might be my all time favorite concealer! The coverage is amazing and it matches my skin tone so nicely. It lasts all day and covers up anything you want to cover up wether that’s just some dark circles, redness or any imperfections in your skin. This bad boy makes them all go away – at least for a day.

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 06 and 07

I’ve already written a review on one of these two beauties. I really like that they come in a stick form for days when I’m in a rush! Basically I just put these on real quick and they last so long! Since I loved  the shade 06 so much, which is a beautiful bronzy shade, I went and bought the shade 06 which is more of a lighter beige shade. Both are the perfect amount of shimmery and so stunning.

Soleil Tan De Chanel 

This was my first ever cream bronzer and it might be my favorite bronzer I own and that’s not just due to the fact that it’s Chanel. When I first heard that this bronzer is supposed to be a universal shade and suit everyone I was really skeptical. I’m quite fair skinned, so I was quite nervous that it would be too orange and make me look muddy. Thankfully it doesn’t! It’s the most natural looking bronzer I’ve ever tried, hands down! Basically I’m in love with this and since the sun has been coming out a bit I’ve used this beauty to warm up my complexion.

Milani Baked Blush – Luminoso

This is probably one of my favorite blushes for a neutral glowy complexion look. It’s a very light and shimmery peach that will probably suit everyone. It’s just a stunning neutral shade.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

As you can see this is just a rather small sample size, which was included in an Estee Lauder Palette I recently purchased. However, I’ve been using this nearly every day as it’s so good. It adds so much length to my lashes and I find it perfect for a more natural look. Once I run out of this I’ll probably have to buy the full size.

Mac Velvet Teddy

I only just got this lipstick at the very beginning of April and look how much I’ve already used it but I’m obsessed! It makes my lips so much fuller and I find it to be the perfect nude for my complexion as it doesn’t wash me out. Basically I can totally understand the hype around this shade, so if you’ve thought about getting this one go for it! It’s absolutely worth it!

October Favorites

IMG_0439

First of all HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! I hope all of you have an amazing day!

But Halloween is always the last day of October, which means it’s also time for my October beauty favorites. I know I’m saying this each month but October seriously flew by. It’s like I was typing up my September favorites just yesterday. Anyway.. I’ve been buying loads of products this month and picked out a few favorites.

MUA Undress Me Too Palette

This is probably the only item in this favorites post that I’ve had for longer than two months. I got this in August while I was in the UK and for some reason I’ve been using it A LOT this month. I wouldn’t say daily but pretty much almost. I’ve just been really loving the metallic shades this month.

Essence Lipliners in Cute Pink and In The Nude

Ever since I bought these a while ago I’ve been using them all the time. They are incredibly pigmented and cheap and the shades are lovely. I’ve written a full blog post on these in case you want to know more.

Maybelline Master Smokey Eye Pencil

I just got this very recently but been using it a ton ever since. I got mine in the shade Smoky Grey, which is a super dark grey almost black color. It’s perfect for a when you’re in a rush because it’s the easiest way to create a smokey eye!

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée

By now it’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of the NYX lip butters. I’ve recently added this shade, which is a barely nude better than your lips kind of shade. I’ve been loving it a lot ever since I got it.

Sephora Cream Lip Stain In Endless Purple

This is the most gorgeous dark purple shade. It doesn’t look as dark in the tube but it’s definitely darker. I love how long lasting this is and I’m head over heels for the color. The only downside is that it’s so long lasting it’s seriously a pain in the you know where to remove.

And this already rounds up my October favorites. I’ve almost mentioned all of these products on my blog before but I’ve just really been enjoying using them!

What are your October favorites?
