March & April Favourites


May where have you come from, I feel like the last two months have disappeared. I've blinked and April is already over. Although, alongside eating as much chocolate as possible for easter even without Easter eggs, I've managed to get out of my NARS Isolde and CT Kim KW comfort zone and have finally introduced some new products to my routine.

Zoeva 221 Luxe Soft Crease
Zoeva 228 Luxe Crease

There aren't any words to describe Zoeva brushes. The two I've been loving recently are both crease brushes and blend eyeshadow beautifully. 221 and 228 are different sizes of the same shape brush, giving you the choice of either a softer or more defined look. What I love about these brushes is how well they clean. They don't stain in the slightest and are just as soft after washing as they were when I got them.
Burberry Eye Colour Contour - Pale Copper
MAC Eyeshadows - Woodwinked and Sable

I love using cream eyeshadows as a base and Burberry Pale Copper has been my shade of choice everyday for the last month. It has a very creamy formula but sets quickly making it harder to blend if you leave it too long. On top of that I have been adding two MAC eyeshadows. Woodwinked, which is quite similar in shade but has a slightly more gold tone all over, and then Sable in the crease which is more of a plum-tone to add some depth. They are some of the softest eyeshadows I own, very pigmented and blend like a dream.

L'Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim
Bourjois Liner Pinceau

Liquid eyeliner was my comfort blanket a few years ago and have fallen back in love with the same products. L'Oreal Superliner is a pen design making it easier to get that perfect flick as you have more control over wear you put it but is a bit more time consuming. Bourjois Liner Pinceau is a liquid so much quicker to apply on your lash line with the brush but can make it harder to get a more defined flick. They are both very long-lasting and I haven't noticed either of them wearing off or smudging throughout the day.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Ever since I got my hands on this I've been reaching for it over my Collection concealer which is saying something. It's as creamy as it describes so it blends into the skin really well and you can layer it without it making you look like a cake. I have the lightest shade Chantilly and I've never known a concealer to brighten under my eyes as well as this one does.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick - Valentine

I'm slowly stepping away from Kim KW, and Charlotte Tilbury's Valentine is starting to become my go-to lipstick. It's a petal-rose pink shade and has a very creamy formula which doesn't dry out your lips. What I love about this shade is that it wears off evenly leaving a stain of colour on your lips. I hope this isn't limited edition or I'm going to need a backup.

The Vampire Diaries

Why I didn't watch this sooner I have no idea. My friend introduced me to The Vampire Diaries a couple of months ago and spent the majority of March catching up in time to watch the last episode. If you are looking for a new programme to watch, give it a chance and trust me you'll be hooked. Now that it's finished you can binge watch it to your hearts content and you won't have to wait a week to find out what happens.

13 Reasons Why

If you haven't heard anyone talking about 13 Reasons Why recently then you must be living under a rock. It is a series based around a girl who commits suicide and it shows you both her life up to that moment and after. It is a programme that is quite difficult to watch at times but sends a very strong message about mental health. I was hooked but I will suggest not to binge watch it as it has very hard-hitting storylines. (Watch The Vampire Diaries between episodes instead.)


The weather is very on-off in the UK at the moment but I'm so excited for May where everything becomes full-on spring. What have you been loving for the past few months?

Bye for now xxx
