April Favourites

Its FAVOURITE's time........April has been such an eventful month and to put an end of 30 days of fun I would love to share with you some of my most reached for beauty products.

Palmolive Naturals Nutra-fruit – A gorgeous blend of moisturising cream and shower gel. I love this as it leaves my skin so soft after a shower and the juicy sweet smell of Kiwi fruit lingers on my skin.

Reniu Coconut Sugar Rub – As a regular fake tanner I’m always on the look out for a good exfoliator. I first tried this scrub returning from a holiday in Fiji last year and fell in love (since then my sister and bf’s sister have both brought me back some for their Fiji holidays). As the name suggests, the product contains sugar cane crystals which I find very effective at buffing away an old fake tan or preparing for a new one.  It also contains virgin coconut oil which leaves your skin beautifully soft as well as smooth and smells delish.

Rimmel Match Perfection 2-in1 Concealer and Highlighter – I use this as my everyday concealer for under eye dark circles and blemishes, I love that the applicator is a small brush that you paint on the problem areas you wish to conceal. It’s a lightweight product that soaks into skin and gives great coverage.

Clinique all about eyes de-puffing eye massage – I apply this (a roll on product) every morning before my concealer and I feel that it helps wake up my under eye area. This is a sample size that I received during Clinique’s Gift Time but I’m looking to repurchase when I run out.  

Benefit Powder in Bella Bamba – I have been using this almost every day throughout April. The coral pink colour really does brighten my complexion and it smells yummy too!

NP Set Lip Gloss in Mauritius – I purchased this on holidays in January but I have been reaching for it more than ever throughout April. It’s a peachy pink colour with a slight gold shimmer and contains Shea butter so its really moisturising. I tweeted Napoleon Perdis (Australian Make-up artist) complementing him on how much I love this product and he replied “Be pretty in peach on the beach everywhere you go” – I was very star struck that he replied to my tweet J

Australis Paparazzi Perfect HD Eye Shadow in Snap Attack – Five pearlescent neutral colours that I have been creating both day and night looks throughout April. For more detailed information view my post here.

China Glaze Fast Freeze Quick Dry – A must have for nail polish’holics. An oil based fluid that is painted onto nails after painting to speed up the drying process. Great for a quick polish job before heading out the door.

Eyeko Vintage Polish in Jade Green – This pastel green is my new go-to nail colour. Long lasting, (get up to five days with a good top coat such as O.P.I) beautifully opaque and non streaky. I’m looking to purchase more eyeko polishes in the near future.
