April Favourites

I swear, I and everyone else who writes these posts say this everytime, but where has this month gone? I can't believe this time next week I will only have one essay left to hand in a be free for summer (yes be jealous, it's ok! Tbh I'll probably be bored within a couple of weeks months!)

Anyway, here are the products I've been loving this month:


Elf Powder Brush: I got this brush half way through April , and it is brilliant for contouring. It fits perfectly in the hollows of your cheek, and works well with cream and powder bronzers. I really love it. It adds colour whilst blending too so I'm not left with obvious lines on my face with minimal work!

MAC - Mineralize Blush - Lovejoy: I think this product is amazing, it is a blush, contour and highlight all in one! I love it, it's so quick and easy to use, it's perfect. Full review here!

Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy - I used to use this all of time, and re-found it and fell back in love with it, it's a lovely sweet smelling perfume and always gets me lots of compliments when I wear it, so it must be a winner right?

Boots Botanics Eye Make-up Remover - I love, love, love, I think it's the best eye make-up remover I've ever used, super easy, non-irritating, all round good egg. Full review coming soon!

Moroccan Oil - Now I've featured this in a favourites, I think my first one, but I kind of stopped using it after watching Gemma's video on how it doesn't actually have any benefits to your hair, so instead used a John Frieda version, as it was cheaper. However I used this for a night out, and oh my goodness, my hair felt amazing, so I don't care if it isn't actually doing anything for my hair, I'm re-purchasing this little guy when I finish the John Frieda Serum

Five Favourite Blog Posts:

I love Anna and her blog, she writes in such a down to earth friendly way, that you kind of wish she could be your best friend. Her post about How To Start A Beauty Blog was super informative and definitely worth a read!

I absoultely love Estee, especially her youtube channel, she is one of those people that when you see a video pop up, you get excited. Now although this was posted last month, I love this post and video combo on how she does her eye-brows! I suck at doing mine, and this was so helpful.

Temp Sec is a blog that I just love to look at, (in a non creepy way) the pictures are always so beautiful, as are what is being featured. This outfit post had me in awe, it's just so pretty. 

If you're looking for a new rosy blush, then check out this post written by the lovely Sleep and Water. Also whilst you are there, check out her beautiful writing and photography style.

I found Laura through a #bbloggers chat and really loved her style. This post in particular held my attention, I don't know many people who could pull this off as beautifully as she does.

--- So I was going to leave it at 5, but you have to check out Sian's Effie Trinket post - amazing!

So that's the end of my favourites for this month! What were your favourites this month?

Laura xoxo

  3. It's hard to believe we're going to be headed into May so soon. NYE seemed just the other day! I've heard such good things about the ELF powder brush, it's great to hear that it's really useful for contouring as well :) Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy is kind of like the signature scent of one of my friends, she also gets complimented on it quite a bit! Thank you so much for the link Laura, that was really sweet of you :) Definitely will be checking out the others you mentioned in your post as well.

  7. You need to get some more elf brushes, they are really good quality. The eyeshadow brushes are good.

    The britney spears perfume reminds me of my little sister. She wears it all the time.

  9. i think i really should buy the brush.
    by the way, i make a (maga)zine called Spark. The third issue, The Journey, is already out. You can read it here http://issuu.com/spark_zine/docs/spark_issue__3
    It would be so lovely if you read it and email Spark what do you think about it.
    And if you want to contribute, just email Spark and tell what do you want to contribute (it could be writing, review, photograph, literally everything that you want to share).
    Thank you very much.

  13. The Britney Spears perfumes are gorgeous, I haven't found one I don't like! By the way, I'd definitely be interested in reading a review of the Boots Botanics eye make-up remover as I have really sensitive skin and I've been thinking about buying it for a while.

    Thank you for mentioning my blog too! xx

  14. I love monthly favourites posts :D I just bought some moroccan oil recently but not tried it yet. And I've been thinking about getting Midnight Fantasy for years but always wondered if it would just be like Fantasy but in a different bottle, what do you think?

    1. I don't know if I've smelled Fantasy but I know I don't like a couple of them so I do think this is different, but not 100% haha (So helpful right?)

  16. Oh I feel so sad every time I feel someone with Lovejoy! I dropped and smashed mine the day after buying mine and my MC store doesn't stock it anymore D:
    Does the Midnight Fantasy also smell like cupcakes? My sister has the pink bottle one and it makes me hungry whenever she walks by!

    Just started following you btw, love a new bb to add to my reading list x
