I can’t actually remember the last time I did a monthly favourites blog post so I’m excited to share with you what I have been loving in this month. I feel like I have not tried any new product before this month really but I have new make up bits I love and old ones I rediscovered, so let’s get into the blog post…
For so long, well all my life possibly, I have been “blessed” with dark undereyes. I doesn’t really matter what cream I put there, they will still be quite dark. I have been using concealers to cover it up, of course, then I saw someone on a YT talking about this product then it hit me, why have I never tried a colour corrector?? So I ordered the Maybelline MasterCamo color correcting pen in pink. I was so surprised how much it cancels out the blue under my eyes. I use concealer after applying this and together they cover up the darkness pretty well. The only thing I’m not really happy with is the twisty applicator… I twist it and have to wait for the product to come out and then later I notice a lot of product coming out, which I still use of course, but you do have to be careful with that. Other than that I’m very happy with this new discovery.
I don’t really know why I picked up this eyeshadow palette from Superdrug, I mean I have enough nude coloured eyeshadows, but this palette still caught my eyes, and really can you ever have enough nude eyeshadows?? I think no, haha. So this is a palette from Maxfactor with the prettiest shades ever. I like that it has matte and shimmery shadows in it too. I mostly use the mattes one for everyday, also the shimmery shades are very, very shimmery. I think it is good for travelling or going on holiday as you can create really natural looks as well as looks for the evening when you want to go out. Not mad at all that I purchased it.
The next favourite is a product I’m not sure I actually love but yet somehow I keep reaching for it a lot. I got a sample of it in March’s Birchbox and this is the new mascara from Benefit, the BadGal Bang mascara. At first I didn’t really like this mascara, but I can’t deny that it gives big long lashes, I still find it a bit clumpy and I’m still not a big fan of that, but I think it is getting better as it is drying out a little bit. I’m not sure if I would buy it again when this runs out, probably not, but I have to say it is not as bad as I first thought it was. Also I really like how it looks on the bottom lashes.
And lastly I have been loving the Hoola Bronzer by Benefit. (it is a sample size from Birchbox) For so long I have thought it was too dark for my skintone, but it is actually looking really nice when I blend it out. After using a cream contour for so long it was weird to use a powder one and I think powder takes longer for me to blend out. But I have been reaching for this every day this month, really loving the way it shapes my face, and just really enjoyed using it.
So these were all the products I have been loving in the month of April. Have you tried any of these products? What have been your faves this month?
Until next time,
