April Favourites 2012!!

Hello My Beauties<33 
So it's that time of the month again.. thats what she said (hehe!)
Time to talk about my favourites for this month ;)

1)Favourite Makeup Products

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation (100 Ivory) -£6.99


  • This is a very affordable drugstore foundation. 
  • It gives good medium-full coverage. 
  • It will last you the whole day. 
  • It gives a very nice dewy finish. 
  • A little bit goes a long way. 
  • I love the packaging! It comes in a sleek glass bottle with a pump. 
  • Also it smells really nice.


  • I think the biggest con is the very limited range of shades. They all seemed too orangey for me (even the lightest shade). 
  • And it can feel a bit heavy. 

Rating out of ten: 8
Best for: Medium skin tones 

Maybelline Dream Touch Blush (02 Peach) -£6.99

  • It is honestly the prettiest shade - a sort of peachy/orange/pink with glitter.
  • This shade is so versatile, it can double as a blush and bronzer - or even a highlight. 
  • It stays on all day. 
  • I think the packaging is very cute too.
  • It is really tiny! It's about the size of an eyeshadow. 
  • I thought it was kind of expensive for a drugstore blush, being so small. 
  • And I would prefer if it had a bit less glitter.
Rating out of ten: 9
Best for: Light-Medium coloured skin

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters -£7.99
  • They are quite decently priced. 
  • They have the most gorgeous packaging. 
  • There is a huge range of lovely colours. 
  • They feel nice and smooth on the lips.
  • They ware off much quicker than your average lipstick. 
  • I actually found them quite drying, they definitely don't substitute lipbalm.
Rating out of ten: 7.5

2)Favourite Hair Products

Vo5 Miracle Concentrate (Argan Oil) -£4.99


  • This is probably the cheapest hair oil out there. As others (such as moroccan oil) tend to be quite ridiculously priced. 
  • It makes your hair incredibly silky and shiny.
  • It smoothes your hair and eases frizz.
  • It has a nice consistency - lightweight and not too oily.
  • It has a lovely scent.
  • I'm not too crazy about the packaging. I think it looks quite tacky. The bottle is a bit small. And I'm not a fan of the 'turkey baster' design applicator.
  • Make sure you are careful that you don't use too much because sometimes it can end up looking greasy.
Rating out of ten: 8.5
Best for: Dry/Damaged Hair.

3)Favourite Nail Products

Revlon Nail Enamel (210 Electric Pink) -£6.49

  • It's a great summery, bright pink/coral shade.
  • It is fun but classic at the same time.
  • I found it very opaque even after the first coat.
  • With a top coat, it can literally last me all week without chipping.
  • It comes in an elegant bottle.
  • It gives a nice shiny finish.
  • I thought £6.49 was a bit much for a drugstore nail polish.
Rating out of ten: 9.5

Quickies Nail Varnish Remover Pads -£2.10


  • For a start, they're cheap.
  • They are so fast and easy.
  • They don't stink the house out - they actually smell nice and fruity.
  • I will never go back to faffing about with a bottle of nail varnish remover and cotton wool.
Rating out of ten: 10

4)Favourite Body Products

Revlon Body Spray Charlie (Secret) -£1.70

  • It's really cheap.
  • The scent is just amazing! It smells warm and floraly with a bit of sweet vanilla in it.
  • It doesn't last very long but you can't expect much from a body spray.
Rating out of ten: 8

Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Shower Foamburst -£3.15

  • I absolutely love the smell!!
  • It works as a body wash and a shaving gel.
  • The tiniest bit goes a long way.
  • It comes out as a gel and lathers up into a thick, moisturising foam.
  • It leaves your skin feeling so soft and clean.
Rating out of ten: 10

5)Favourite Skincare Products

St. Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub -£3.99

  • It makes your skin feel so soft and smooth.
  • It has a nice creamy texture.
  • It smells delicious.
  • It can be a bit harsh at first.
Rating out of ten: 8

6)My Most Played Songs

  • Train- Drive By
  • Carlie Rae Jepson- Call Me Maybe
  • Gotye- Somebody That I Used to Know
  • Jason Mraz- I Won't Give Up
  • Nicki Minaj- Starships
  • Justin Bieber- Boyfriend
  • Sean Paul- She Doesn't Mind
