I’ve been testing so much new stuff I’m so excited to share it with you! April was a busy month for me between birthdays and a new job I had so much going on that I wore make up so much more! Student loan also dropped which meant everywhere had discounts and I could not help myself – here’s what I picked up!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glow Eyeshadow Palette
I’ve had my eye on this for so long but I couldn’t decide between this and the Modern REnassaince palette but when beauty bay had 20% off for students I took the plunge and went for the soft glow and I haven’t been disappointed. I love the colours and the shimmers are so pigmented – I’m not used to it at all the first time I used them I used wayyy too much. Yes, this does have a lot of fall out but I find its mostly in the pan and doesn’t fall on the face so beggars cannot be choosers here!
The Ordinary Primer
I managed to get this for £3.20 and it is the best £3.20 I’ve spent. This arrived in the middle of that mini heatwave we have and it managed to keep my foundation in place all day even though a full shift which I was amazed at. I love this.
Mac Little Velvet Teddy
Can you believe I’ve never tried this?! I’ve heard so much about it but I’d never even watched it! I saw it in a mini version on ASOS and thought I might as well give it ago since it’s such a cult favourite and I have not been disappointed. Maybe not the best summer shade but it’s beautiful none the less.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Mini – Moonstone and Champagne Pop
I’ve been dying to try Champagne Pop for ages but after my nightmare with Parisian Lights, I was really reluctant because I couldn’t see the shade in person. When I saw they done mini versions of both of these shades and there was 15% off I knew I had to try them and I love them. Moonstone is a bit light for me at the moment but in the winter/when I don’t have tan on it’ll be amazing!
Lush Lip Scrub – Bubblegum
This is a cult classic. I usually get the popcorn scrub but I love the smell of this so I gave it a go and as you can expect it work. it does exactly what it says it will so there are no complaints from me!
L’absolu Lacquer Lipstick – 378 Be Unique
I am obsessed with this! It feels so good on the lips and the colour last so well! I love it and I really want to try more shades in this. I feel like this will be one of my favourite formulas and it’s so easy to apply!
Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Drops
Student loan dropped the exact same time as a heatwave so that can only mean one thing! I’m trying to stay out the sun a bit more this year – I love the sun and being tan but I’m not too fond of being wrinkled/skin cancer so I’ve made some changes! This had been hyped up on Instagram so much and I fell for it and gave it a go. It smells lovely and there’s not a hint of biscuits. It also gives a lovely colour to the face which I suppose is the point, right?
This has already featured in two of my posts including my April Favourites so you know I love it!
