April Beauty Favourites

Hi all!!

Sorry for running late with posts this month, I had my first week at the new job and came home pretty exhausted haha! Should get into a better routine soon (I hope) but for now you can enjoy some slightly late favourite beauty/skin care things for this lovely month (or last month rather…I shouldn’t write posts so late at night :-/). I apologise in advance for the very mediocre photo but the weather was not my friend and I got lazy waiting.

1. Aveeno positively radiant skin brightening daily scrub
I have trouble with face scrubs and my sensitive skin, usually resulting in tight, red skin and a pretty pissed off Lizzy … But not so with this one by Aveeno! This scrub is gentle yet still actually seems to be effective. A new staple in my skin care routine.

2. Davidoff Cool Water Woman
Although this isn’t the most modern or trendiest perfume at the moment I am a big fan of this classic scent. Having always loved the male scent this one was on my wishlist for a while and received as a lucky Christmas gift. This has been a favourite for work as its fresh and clean without being having a strong floral or fruity scent.

3. Australis Colour Inject Lipstick in Jive
There seems to be a rather work related theme to this month’s favourites as this lipstick was my favourite lip shade to wear to work when I wasn’t wearing another favourite (Revlon’s kissable balm stain in Honey). This lipstick is affordable enough to wear every day without fear of finishing and is my preference to wearing nude lipstick, being a very flattering and wearable light pink.

4. Model Co Black Eyeliner
This was a sample bar box product that I adored from the first time I tried it! Creamy and pigmented this applies like a dream. Nuff’ said!

5. Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla and Macadamia
I couldn’t resist the allure of these new Nivea lip butters and I rather enjoy us first one I picked up. It does show up quite white at first but I tend to use under lipstick so it doesn’t bother me. Creamy and hydrating with a little going a long way and a delicious scent to add to the mix.

6. OPI in Bubble Bath
Going through many job interviews and then Starting this new job I had no idea what the policy was on nails and what kinds of shades I could adorn myself with. So this classic nude pink came to the rescue. A favourite for many, this sheer blushing nude colour is the perfect my nails but better shade and made wearing nude nails (which has the potential to drive me crazy) rather endurable.

What makeup/skin care products have you been loving this month?

    Lovely faves. I adore the Colour Inject Mineral Lipsticks and OPI is one of my fave polish brand’s. I use another Aveeno daily face scrub from the SmartEssentials range. I’m filming or blogging my April Faves on Monday, like you, I’ve been working and blogging regularly hasn’t been possible.

    Fantastic read :-) Now I want to go beauty product shopping!
    I love OPI’s Bubble Bath, too. Another fave in the ‘nice, but neutral’ family is Samoan Sand – a great taupe-y shade..

    Hi Lizzy, I love Australis and the Colour Inject Lipstick’s and Lipglosses are so nice I have a few now. I use a different Aveeno product but it’s nice too and I also have that Nivea Lip Butter but if you can, get the Caramel Cream one, it smells yummy! I’m swear I commented a few day’s ago on your post and I let you know that I’d posted my April faves so I hope you’ll check it out when you have time as your a busy career woman now :-) See you soon though, Karen.

    Great favourites, I might have to take a look at Bubble Bath. I love Samoan Sand too, it made it into my May favourites. I love wearing brights but am started to get into neutrals as I feel like I have to always have brights matched to my outfits – which results in a lot of shade switching!
