April Favourites


Hi Beauties, 
Happy Sunday! 
I can't believe it's already the end of the month. This year is going to fast, I'm afraid I'll miss it all each time I blink. Anyone else get like that? April is my favourite month of the year - there are many birthday celebrations (mine included) and lots of short weeks (who doesn't love a three-day weekend!?) 
The end of the month also means.... monthly favourites! Keep on reading to see what I've been loving. 


Kevin Aucoin The Neo-Bronzer: My beautiful friend bought this for me for my birthday and I've been so obsessed with it ever since. I mean, look at it!? It's beautiful. It's almost too beautiful to even touch. The subtle ombre of highlight, blush and bronzer is so flattering on the skin, it looks like I've spent hours blending everything to perfection. I love every shade and I genuinely can't wait to do my makeup in the mornings so I can use this. 


Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer: I got this as part of my Mecca Beauty Loop box and I am in love. First things first - It's chocolate-scented! Yes, you read that right. It actually smells like chocolate every single time I put this on my face. It's the perfect matte bronzer so you can even contour with this if you want. It's also the perfect colour for fair skin like mine. Sometimes I find bronzers really orange and dirt-like but not this baby.  I just love this and I'll be purchasing the full size when I run out. Available at Meccabeauty.co.nz RRP $47.00. 

LEGRA Leaf Crawler Earrings: I got this in my LadyGang Lady Box (If you don't know what that is, we can't be friends). They are just so friggen cute and I have already worn them about 10 times since I got them. RRP $30.00USD

Noted Magnetic Bookmarks: My mum bought me some of these for Christmas and I've loved them ever since. I think I've told every single person I know about how cool these are. They are magnetic so they keep your place in your book without damaging any of the pages - and they just look super cute. My friend even bought me some more for my birthday, that's how much I love them. Available at Whitcoulls. RRP $6.99. 

Jac Vanek Makeup Bag: Another item from the Lady Box I am obsessed with. Seriously. "Life's a bitch but so am I" is so Blair Waldorf and we all know I strive to be Blair on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this was a special Lady Gang item - but Jac has a range of awesome zip pouches available on her site. www.jacvanek.com 

L'oreal True Match Foundation: I re-discovered this old favourite half way through the month and I have been using it ever since. It's a buildable medium coverage foundation that blends beautifully on the skin and doesn't accentuate any texture or pores. It also lasts really well on the skin throughout the day. The colour range isn't amazing but I can still make their lightest shade work for my fair skin. Available at Farmers, RRP $42.99. 

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip: I've talked about these so many times but they are great for everyday wear. They a smooth to apply and last hours on the lips without having to do any touchups. Perfect if you're out and about all day. Whether you're after a nude or a bright pink, there are so many beautiful colours to choose from AND they are only US$6.00. Bargain. 

I'd love to know what you have been loving this month - let me know in the comments below.
