April Beauty Favourites

beauty, makeup, skincare, favourites

It's that time again, for another beauty favourites post. So I've been thinking about the products I've been loving most this month, to share with you. 

What is with this weather lately? One minute we're enjoying that lovely Spring sunshine and next it's snowing! I don't know about you but I just want to use all my Spring based beauty products!!

Here are the 5 products I've been loving during April...

soap & glory, moisturiser, fake tan, skincare, beauty

Soap & Glory Glow Job (£11.00)
If you follow my Snapchat [if you don't, you should ;)] you will have seen me raving about this stuff when I was in London this month. It's a tinted moisturiser, a wash off self-tanner for the face and it's lovely! It includes 'micro bronze burst beads' that pop when you massage them into the skin. It also contains youth enhancing raspberry stem cells and vitamin E so I've been happily using this every day since I purchased, and loving the gorgeous glow it gives!

mac, paint pot, makeup, beauty

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study (£16.00)
MAC's Paint Pots are creamy eye shadows that go on creamy and dries to create a second-skin with a vibrant finish. As it blends smoothly without any creasing, leaving a seamless finish, I've been using it as a primer for my eye shadow and it works perfectly. Bare Study is a creamy shade, similar to Painterly, but with a gold pearl shimmer to it, so I've also been using it to highlight my brow bone. It has been sat in my make up drawer for a while now but after reading somewhere how they work great as a primer, I've been using it every day since.

scott cornwall, haircare, beauty

Scott Cornwall Precolour Clarifying Treatment* (£3.99/Boots)
You may've seen over my social media that I was invited to London a few weeks ago to feature in some video footage for Scott Cornwall [look out for a blog post soon!] - as I'm a huge fan of Scott's products, I was super excited to be a part of this. Before the shoot, I had to made sure my hair was prepped well, ready for colour so I was using this clarifying treatment to help remove any product residue from my hair and gently lift the cuticle to enable colour pigment to penetrate the hair and leave a longer lasting more even hair colour. It's fantastically priced and I'll definitely be using this before any home hair colours in the future!

ted baker, fragrance, beauty

Ted Baker Pink Body Spray* (£7.00/Boots)
I love sweet smelling fragrances and this body spray is a light, fresh fragrance I've been using regularly as the scent is perfect for Spring time. The fragrance is fruity grapefruit, mandarin and mango, teamed with subtle floral notes of neroli and jasmine, with a base of patchouli, sandalwood and musk to complete the scent. I've been using many products from the Sugar Sweet range and love layering with them as the scent is beautiful! 

mac, lipstick, creme d'nude, makeup, beauty

MAC Lipstick in Creme d'Nude (£15.50)
Creme d'Nude has been my favourite MAC lipstick for years, I can't imagine how many I've been through. I'm yet to find a nude lip as perfect and creamy as this one, I just love it. Creme d'Nude is a 'pale muted peach beige' shade in their Cremesheen formula. It's extremely nude so may not suit some, but I prefer a creamy nude lip to any other lip colour and feel it suits me well. It goes perfect for a day or night makeup look, I'm confident this will still be my all time favourite for years to come!

  1. I love the sound of the soap and glory product. I haven't seen that one before, but I do love their other products. A little glow on my face seems to make all the difference, so I will be hunting that one out. Thanks for the recommendation.

  2. absolutely love the soap and glory branding. the product names are always funny :) #KCACOLS

  3. Lovely pics! I'm a huge fan of Soap and Glory, I use a lot of their products. x #KCACOLS

  4. I've been meaning to get a new lipstick and I've never brought a MAC one yet, I know, crazy but true. I like the look of the Ted Baker spray aswell. Oh I think its time for a little pamper shop!

  5. I have one of the Paint Pots in Painterly and I use it all the time so this sounds great as a bit of a change! I'm a bit addicted to my MAC lippies too and live in constant fear that a favourite will be discontinued! #KCACOLS

  6. I am heading immediately to my nearest Boots to pick up "Glow Job". I love Soap and Glory products but have somehow missed this one. (I have clearly been living under a rock!) Thanks for sharing with #FartGlitter x

  7. You've made me want to give Creme D'Nude a go! I've been looking for a light creamy nude for a little while. And also, have loved Bare Study for a couple years now, so pretty and easy to throw on!

  8. I love Soap & Glory products. This Glow Job sounds fantastic. I will give it a go. I'm also fan of MAC products and I have something similar. It sounds great. I used to wear a lot of lipsticks in nude before but since the past 6 months I kind of feel more in the mood to wear red!! ;-) Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. It is nice to see you back, :-) xx

  9. I love soap and glory but I''ve never tried the glow job but I want to now it sounds fab! #kcacols

  10. Oh that pre colour looks interesting, I think I need to check it out. I often think with highlights you often get build up. Thanks for linking up to #lovelythings

  11. I love Ted Baker fragrances, they are perfect for summer!
