April Favourites 2016
Every month just flies by and, to be honest, it is a little bit concerning considering I have a huge thesis due at the end of the year but I'm sure I will survive. These were the products I used over and over again this month and it is pretty safe to say I love each and every one of them.

Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette in 002 Coral Glow $16.95
Rimmel Kate Sculpting Palette in 002 Coral Glow review
I did a full review of this one recently but there is no way I could leave it out of my monthly favourites. It is the most beautiful and best value product I have seen released at the drugstore in a very long time. Quite simply, you need to try it out!

Artiste 2-in-1 Foundation/Concealer 50 Brush $24.95
Artiste 2-in-1 Foundation/Concealer 50 Brush review
I reviewed this one earlier in the week but as my new favourite concealer brush I just had to include it. It perfectly blends out my under-eye concealer/highlight Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and is basically the ideal size, shape, density, etc. After always being so disappointed in traditional flat design concealer brushes this is definitely a welcomed discovery. 

MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup $36
MAC Lipstick in Creme Cup review
This has been my MAC lipstick of the month that's for sure! I adore the light pink colour that just brightens up my face while still looking very naturally flattering. It is a soft, cool toned light pink in the Cremesheen formula. It is definitely a must MAC lipstick shade.

Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 $19.95
Sally Hansen Complete Care 7-in-1 review
This one has been receiving a lot of buzz recently on Instagram and beauty blogs and it is very easy to see why. It has definitely helped with my ever present and endlessly annoying peeling nail issue. The best part for me is that I can use it as a base coat to moisturise and repair my nails while still being able to wear cute polish, which is always a win-win.

Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in 003 Brown $9.95
Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in 003 Brown review
I have been a huge fan of this pencil in black for a really long time which is why I picked up the brown one at the recent Priceline sale. I always love black eyeliner to line my upper water line but I find it is a little intense on my pale skin when I smudge it into my lash line, especially for everyday. I am completely in love with this liner and have been wearing it constantly just like the picture below. I line my eyes without being to fussy and smudge it in with a brush. It looks incredible, takes about 30 seconds and lasts all day. You need this liner, guys!

So as per usual, I made some beauty excellent discoveries this month. I also figured I would start adding in some non-beauty favourites each month just for the sake of mixing it up. I have been obsessing over the new TV show Shadowhunters. It is a little bit of guilty pleasure but I'm actually not ashamed... not at all. It is so good guys and the whole first season is on Netflix so check it out. Also, considering the weather has cooled down considerably I decided to pull out an old knitting project. I am knitting a whole blanket from gorgeous alpaca/merino wool one little square at a time. I may not even have it finished by the end of next winter but I really enjoy knitting so that is okay.

I would love to know which products and random other things you have been obsessed with this month so let me know in the comments below.

  1. Really wanting to try the new Rimmel contour kit, it looks divine! I also own MAC's creme cup and i've really been enjoying it lately too - it's just an easy shade to pop on whilst running out the door. :) This month i've been loving for Urban Decay setting spray!

    1. I just got a sample of that UD Setting Spray and I always knew the Skindinavia one I had was a dupe but turns out it is actually the exact same product. It even smells the same haha.
