April Monthly Favourites

April has passed and we have welcomed May with open arms and a bit of warm weather!
Now that it has finally, it seems, got a little warmer, I can already see some of the products and scents I have been using transitioning into something a a bit more spring appropriate. I love autumn and the vampy looks you can create, but when spring and summer arrives, fresh and dewy products are everything. I think that this is definitely something that has started to reflect in with my favourites this month! With the new month comes new favourites, so here are some of the products I have been really enjoying for the past month of April!

Tom Ford Eye Colour Quad in Nude Dip

I usually only wear neutral shadows, which makes this Tom Ford eye quad right up my alley.  I have found I have really been reaching for this palette a lot this past month as the shadows are so easy to blend and the colours are beautiful. It contains four shimmery pearlised neutrals, with a soft champagne, a medium rosey peach, a soft taupe grey and a medium brown, all which are  slightly on the cool side. I have been loving the combination of the champagne shade on the lid, and then blending the taupe grey and the medium brown into the crease. I will have a full in-depth review on this palette shortly so keep an eye out for that!

Smith’s & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer in Hi Speed Sonnet

Like I mentioned in my Spring Lipgloss EditI have really been enjoying wearing a lipgloss which is actually very unusually for me as I prefer a matte lip. This Smith’s & Cult lipgloss in Hi Speed Sonnet (full review) is a ripe melon pink gloss with golden shimmer. It is a beautiful shade for spring, and as it is infused with portulaca pilosa extract and coconut it leaves the lips very moisturised.

Victoria Secret Body Mist Love Spell

My boyfriend actually bought this for me from our local Tesco! I was a little shocked to see Victoria Secret in Tesco but I am not complaining at all! I believe they are also being sold in Superdrug too which is great as they are now becoming a lot more accessible for us in the UK. I love to throw a body spray in my bag for the day as they can be a lot lighter in scent than a perfume, and This Victoria Secret Body Mist in Love Spell has been my favourite pick for April. It genuinely smells amazing. I would describe it as fairly sweet and fruit – so great for day wear – and has a combination of notes of peach, cherry blossom and white jasmine. It is also infused with conditioning aloe vera and calming chamomile, although I find mainly it just smells  incredible.

Essie Nail Polish in Lady Like

A couple of months a go I got my nails done at the salon and chose this shade. I fell in love, so without a doubt I had to pick it up. Since then it has been my go to nail polish as it is the perfect nude pink. It looks very classy and elegant, you can never go wrong with Lady like.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in Lingerie Pink 

Like I said, when Spring arrives, I prefer lighter soft colours. Lingerie Pink from the YSL Rouge Volupte shine line (that has without a doubt THE most beautiful packaging I have ever seen) is a gorgeous cool tones nude pink. I have been wearing this a lot as it really compliments a dewy face and a natural eye. Very day time appropriate!

So there are my April favourites! What products have you been reaching for this past month?
