April 2014 Beauty Favourites

Since I missed my March favourites (slap on the wrist for me) I wanted to make sure I got something posted about what I've enjoyed in April.  Luckily my favourites haven't changed all that much in the last couple of months, two products are even the same from my February favourites.  Anyway, without further ado lets get on with it...

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask and Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm

Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil (here) - This is a long term favourite of mine and a definite holy grail product.  Since I bought my first bottle in July 2012 I haven't been without one in my skincare stash; it's really a bit of a miracle product, moisturising and plumping out the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and even fading scar tissue on my face.  I also love putting a couple of drops in my body moisturiser occasionally to really supercharge it!
Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask (here) - I won't go on about this too much as I talked about this in my February favourites too, I just love it though, so softening and perfect when my skin is going a little bit crazy.
Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm (here) - Another repeat product from February, but honestly so totally worth it that I'm not even ashamed!  I apply this lip balm every night before bed and every morning before I start my makeup, and it keeps my lips fabulously soft and smells lovely.

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (here) - I was so excited when the new John Lewis opened in York complete with a NARS counter, I just had to buy a few things from my wish list and the tinted moisturiser came in right at the top.  As someone who loves NARS Sheer Glow Foundation regularly I've found this tinted moisturiser to be the perfect lighter alternative.  On my better skin days it gives me just enough coverage and subtle glow to feel confident in my skin, the SPF30 is a nice bonus too.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (here) - I seriously don't know what I did for concealer before I got this, and particularly in the shade Vanilla.  I had the shade Custard before and kind of liked it, but Vanilla has just blown me away, it's perfect at covering blemishes or brightening up the darkness under my eyes.  Dare I say this is another holy grail product for me?

MAC Ampliied Lipstick in Vegas Volt and Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjois

MAC Amplified Lipstick in Vegas Volt (here) - I only got this lipstick a couple of weeks ago through MAC's recycling programme (Back to MAC) but it's been a bit of a game changer for me as far as lipsticks are concerned.  I never thought I could wear a coral but this is just the perfect shade, with a rich intense colour that really brightens up the face.  I can't wait to wear this on my holiday in July.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Frambourjois (here) - I did a review of these very recently (which you can check out here) so I won't go into too much detail about this beautiful lip colour except to say I've just been bowled over by how good these are, so long lasting!  I must get more shades soon.

Skinny Tan 7 Day Tanner and Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser

Skinny Tan 7 Day Tanner* (here) - This is the first self tanner I've tried in many years and I've been genuinely surprised at how much I like the stuff.  It's ridiculously easy to apply, I literally just slapped it on with a mitt and 5 hours later washed off the guide colour to reveal a very subtle tan.  It wasn't orange either, perfect for my light olive toned skin.  I'll have a full review coming up of this in the next couple of day - just as soon as I can get some decent pictures of the results!
Vaseline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser (here) - This fabulous little moisturising spray is the perfect body care product for a lazy so and so like me.  I hate having to spend a lot of time putting on a moisturiser then waiting for it to try before I get dressed, and with this I don't have to.  A few sprays here and there, a quick rub into the skin and I'm good to go, couldn't be easier!  I just wish there was a bigger bottle of it available.

So, lovely people, we have come to the end of another favourites post - have you tried anything that I've talked about or have you been loving different products entirely?  Would love to hear from you either way!

  1. I've just bought the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and don't know why I haven't been using it before now! Didn't expect it to be so good - love it! May try out the tinted moisturiser now too!

    1. The creamy concealer is so good isn't it? I have quite a few NARS products but I still have a list as long as my arm of things I want to try - so far have just loved everything!
