I know you’re probably all sick of monthly favourite posts starting with ‘I don’t know where this month has gone’ but honestly, April has flown by! I seem to have incorporated a whole new selection of products into my morning makeup routine.
The first gem I’ve been reaching for this this month is the L’OREAL TRUE MATCH foundation. This is the perfect foundation for when you’re transitioning from heavy-duty, high-coverage Winter foundations into to something more light and summery. It still offers a nice middle ground coverage and is also very hydrating. If you’ve ever spotted this in the aisles of Boots or Superdrug you’ll know the shade range is absolutely second to none as well.
The next thing I’ve been using is BENEFIT’S ROLLER LASH. Since I’ve got a lot of deadlines coming up I’ve been sacrificing the lengthy process of make-up application in the mornings in favour of twenty minutes extra sleep, and this mascara makes it so easy. Normally, I meticulously curly my lashes and use a pin to separate them out, but with this gem I can just whack it on and enjoy a volume and length all day long. In keeping with my newfound laziness, I’ve been loving this LOTTIE NAIL POLISH lately, as it’s quick-drying and doesn’t chip if you build up a few coats. The colour is a really unique metallic gold, with a delicate rosy undertone.
One of my absolute favourites this month has been this MOISTURISER/PRIMERhybrid from Clean & Clear. I’ve had some stress spots recently and this has really helped clear them up. You can read a full review HERE. I’ve saved the best till last in the CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIP CHEAT in Pillow Talk. With all the hype surrounding this cult favourite, I was happily surprised when this lived up to all the rave reviews. I use it all over my lips and I’m always so blown away by the staying power. The colour pay-off is opaque and matte and my lip look so plump and defined when I’m wearing this. Honestly, I can’t praise this lipliner enough.
