Current Beauty Favourites - April

Thursday, 17 April 2014

I haven't done a 'favourites' style post in a while. So I figured it was probably a good idea to share with you some of the products & items that I have been using on a regular basis over the past month or so. I like to keep things on rotation but there are a few items that stick around a little longer and without realising I will have nearly finished the product because I've used it so much!

  Firstly we have a selection of blending brushes that you may recognise from this post. They are from a very affordable set from Ebay, which despite being cheap, they have lasted really well and do a fantastic job of blending out my eyeshadows. The three above are the ones I use most often. I use the 2 larger brushes to blend out my eyeshadow and then the smaller brush to add shadow into my crease. They are really soft and don't scratch my eyes at all, which would usually be a concern when an item is so cheap! I highly recommend them. You can buy the set I have here.

Next we have the Percy & Read Wonder balm* This effectively  is like a primer for your hair. You apply it when your hair is damp, I tend to put through my mid lengths and ends. The balm seals your hair cuticle, adds gloss along with it's main aim to help your styling products reach their full potential. It has that classic Percy & Reed scent, which to me smells a little bit like babies - I know that sounds strange but if you know the scent you will know what I mean! For me personally is does improve the shine of my hair -so much so, I don't really bother reaching for a shine spray. It also helps with those pesky flyaways I usually get when I style my hair. So even though it sounds like a bit of a bizarre product, it does help the overall appearance of my hairstyle!

The Mac MSF in Lightscapade is one I picked up at my local CCO. It sat in the back of my drawer unloved for a while, but now it's my absolute favourite hightighter of the moment. It's a very light, subtle highlighter. Compared to Soft & Gentle which I find is a lot more glittery, Lightscapade comes across on my skin as much more of a natural glow leaving my skin looking really radiant. I would say it's a good one for girls who are new to highlighters as it isn't too in-your-face shimmer.

Another favourite of mine, which I think will forever be a favourite is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting spray, There was a period where I didn't have this in my stash and boy, did my face thank me for it once I repurchased. It keeps my makeup in place and just does what it says on the tin really. I reviewed it a while ago which you can read here if you are interested.

So that is it, a couple of things that I am loving at the moment. Are there any products that have crept back into your routine that have once again become firm favourites?

Much love,


  1. Ooh I got the Wonder Balm with a magazine the other month and haven't managed to work it into my routine yet. To be honest, it didn't really excite me but now you've made me want to give it a whirl! x

  2. I bought the Urban Decay spray for my prom 2 years ago but never got round to repurchasing it, I think soon is the time :)
