April Favourites

April Favourites
Hey Lovelies,
I hope you are all having a great bank holiday weekend! I worked yesterday and am working again tomorrow, but have today off so I thought I'd write up an April Favourites post for you all to read. I don't usually do favourites posts because I tend to rave about the products I love throughout each month on my blog anyway. However as I was admiring my make up collection the other day it dawned on me that there are a few products which I have been loving that I've not yet talked about on my blog. A couple of these products are new releases, but a few have been out for a while so read on to see what I have been loving throughout the month of April (and what I am certain I will continue to love throughout the rest of the year!).
MAC Strobe Cream
 MAC Strobe Cream, RRP £24.50
This product has been around for quite some time and I recently fell in love with it all over again after replenishing it for the third time. I use this after my moisturiser but before my primer and I feel that it not only gives my skin that coveted 'lit from within glow', but it also helps to blur out some of my imperfections. MAC Strobe cream is packed with vitamins and green tea to help keep your skin hydrated, looking awake and calm. I can really see a difference to the way my make up looks when I use this product. I took it on my recent holiday to Berlin with me and after both of my friends used it, it is now on their beauty wishlist too which is a true testament to how amazing MAC Strobe Cream is!
NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation
It's no secret that I'm a massive fan of the NARS Sheer Glow foundation. So when I heard that they were bringing out a new foundation I was desperate to try it, and after getting a sample from my local NARS counter I loved it so much that I purchased 2 shades of it, one in my fake tan colour (Punjab) and one in my natural skin colour (Deauville). I would say that this foundation has a semi matte finish with medium to full buildable coverage. It contains no SPF but that doesn't really bother me as my daytime moisturiser always has an SPF in it. I took my NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation (isn't the name a mouthful!) on holiday to Berlin with me and after looking through my holiday pictures, I can confirm that it photographs like a dream. In fact, whenever I wear the foundation my friends compliment me on how flawless my skin looks. I am actually starting to get quite a big head about this haha! Another thing I love about this foundation is that it comes with a pump which means no mess and that you can control exactly how much product you are using. Even though the coverage of this foundation is medium to full, it feels completely lightweight on my skin. Well done NARS on bringing out yet another winning foundation!
Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Mascara
 Benefit Roller Lash, RRP £19.50
Benefit's iconic They're Real mascara has always been one of my all time favourite mascaras. When I found out the brand was launching another mascara designed to curl your lashes and look more natural than They're Real, I wasn't convinced that I would like it. After all, I love They're Real and the full false lash effect it gives my lashes. However my friend who works on a Benefit counter gave me a small sample of Roller Lash to try out, and I instantly fell in love with it. It lengthens and separates my lashes but doesn't thicken them as much as They're Real does. You can get a lovely doll eyed effect when using Roller Lash. What I tend to do is use both They're Real and Roller Lash together for full on killer lashes!
Tom Ford Brow Sculptor
We all know that defined brows are all the rage at the moment. Usually I use a matte brown eyeshadow or a wax and powder combo to fill in  my eyebrows, but after hearing nothing but good things about the Tom Ford Brow Sculptor, I decided to treat myself to it. That is one decision I do not regret! Whenever I use this product, it gives me super defined yet natural looking brows. What's more, the Tom Ford Brow Sculptor is so easy to use it's literally foolproof. To me this product is a hybrid between an eyebrow pencil and wax. It stays on my brows all day and does not melt off, not even when the sun is out or after a rigorous gym workout haha! The Tom Ford Brow Sculptor is available in 4 very wearable shades that comes in a twist-up pen format. If you like your brows very defined, it even includes an in-built sharpener. I bought my brow sculptor in the shade Espresso which matches my brows perfectly and I am so glad I invested in this little beauty!
Well, that's it for my April Favourites. Enjoy the rest of your bank holiday weekend and don't forget to leave me a little comment telling me which product you've been loving together with your blog link as I always try to check them out!
As always, thank you for reading and until next time,
