Monthly Favourites - April
Sometimes it can be difficult writing favourites posts because I often use the same products for months on end with little variation, however this month I changed up my routine completely and wore products that I would never have picked as my first choice usually.
Face: I love my blushes, and in April my most used blush would easily have been the Essence The Twilight Saga breaking Dawn Part 2 Blush in Renesmee Red, though I still have a huge problem with the name of the product! I have used it so frequently that the latch won't close properly anymore which is a huge pain, but I guess I can't really complain because Essence products are so cheap. This is a blush where you need time and patience to apply it well, and I have been on holidays so it has been wonderful.
Lips: Sticking with the red theme, this month I wore the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Romantic non stop. I picked it up after liking my Revlon Stain in Smitten but finding it a little unwearable for everyday. Never was I a huge fan of red lips, but I am now!
Covergirl Lash Blast Length mascara, or sometimes my Avon Daring Curves mascara, but the Max Factor Lash Extension Effect mascara that I won in Sophie's giveaway was calling my name. I have heard whispers that Covergirl and MaxFactor are the same brand with essentially the same formulas for all their products. I can certainly believe that, as this Lash Extention mascara is identical to the Covergirl Lash Blast Length one (except in brown instead of black). I love it.
Nails: As always I have decided not to go with a nails category this month because I haven't been wearing any new polishes. I chose my mini DKNY perfume in Be Delicious Fresh Blossom. I don't like it as much as the DKNY Be Delicious perfume (the green one) but it is still lovely. The only thing I can't stand about this mini size is that it hasn't got a pump and so it is impossibly fiddly to apply.
Other: Last favourite of April is my leaf and stone ring. No explanation is needed about why I love it! I am so glad I picked it up for only $2!
