I think I mentioned this last month, but every month when favourites comes around it’s so hard to pick a selection of products that I’ve been loving that I didn’t already mention just 30 days before. It seems that after issuing a spending ban back in January, even shopping my stash and finding old favourites is a hard task. I’ve done all the round already! I’m kind of into a routine of using the same products every day for the same look.
I usually go for the Heat Defence one, because I straighten my hair fairly often but I picked up the Miracle Moist version in March to see if it made a difference to my dull, dry hair. And, I’ve really noticed a difference, it’s so much shinier and has more movement too. I have upped the amount of heat protection I put on afterwards though to match what I’m lacking from this one.
It’s much more mature than the fruity fragrance of the other three. It’s a little muskier, with strong hints of vanilla, which is probably why I like it so much. I love vanilla. I love the packaging too. Watercolour art is one of my favourite things at the moment, I can’t paint with it to save my life, but it looks beautiful. In fact, there’s some cool things happening on the blog in the future to do with watercolour!
I guess it’s kind of cheating talking about two lipsticks in one but I have been loving these two shades together recently. Evening Rendezvous is this beautiful, blue toned purple shade, which on it’s own doesn’t look that great on me (not that I care too much because the colour itself is incredible.) It’s quite bold, a more daytime purple shade I would say. Most shades similar to this that I own are going out colours which I don’t pick up too often!
Rimmels 08 is a really pretty “your lips but better” nude, it’s a great shove on if you’re running out of the door. However, this month I’ve been pairing it over the top of Evening Rendezvous to give this really beautiful, musky nude. It brings down the blue tone in the MAC lipstick just enough to suit my skin tone better but not so much that the purple disappears altogether.
So that’s that for my April favourites, a pretty short one I’m afraid. I think in May, I might have to splash a little and invest in some new pieces for my collection, purely for research and blogging purposes, of course. We’ll see…
