Hello everyone!

Another month is over which is both terrifying and exciting. It means we are one step closer to it being summer but it does mean that exams will be starting soon *sob, sob*. But it does mean that it is April Favourites time.

My first favourite this month is the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink. I often prefer gel eyeliner over other types because I find it easier to apply and it is often more pigmented. This gel liner is very creamy which makes it easier to apply than some drier eyeliners as it doesn't drag or pull on the eyelid. The lasting power of this is really good and it doesn't tend to smudge very easily which is a major plus for me as I find so many products set up camp under my eye within a few hours of wearing it and leave a lovely black smudge under my eyes. This definitely doesn't do that which is really good and the pigmentation is amazing.

Last month the Bourjois Colour Boost in Proudly Naked was one of my favourites, this month it is the same product but in Peach on the Beach. This is a gorgeous peachy pink (as the name suggests!) which is perfect for this time of year as it brightens up any makeup look. Being of a balmy consistency it is also more hydrating and looks nice and glossy on the lips.

Another Bourjois product in this favourites is the Little Round Pot Cream Blush in Rose Tender. I have been using this most days that I have worn makeup ever since I got this product at the beginning of this month because it is really amazing. A full review of this should be coming soon but in short this is a cream-to-powder formula that is pretty pigmented and it also blends really easily into the skin. The colour is perfect for an everyday look as it is subtle and just adds a hint of a pink to my cheeks.

I have really dry lips all year round and I find that a lot of lip balms actually dry out my lips rather than hydrate them. One of the few products that actually doesn't dry out my lips are the eos Balms (mine are in Sweet Mint and Honeysuckle Honeydew). Not only do they hydrate my lips but they also smell amazing which is always a bonus with any product. 

A rediscovery for this month is the MAC In Extreme Dimension Lash which is a mascara that I loved a while ago and now I can remember why. It adds length, volume and separates the lashes which is exactly what I look for in a mascara. It also lasts all day on the lashes without a lot of fallout like a lot of other mascaras. It is one of the few high end mascaras I can justify splurging on.

The final product in this months favourites is the L'Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim Intense in Black. Other than gel liners, my other favourite type of eyeliner is a felt tip liner. This particular liner has a really thin tip which means I can create a thin line really close to my lash line and it is also perfect for adding a flick. It is really pigmented and is really long lasting.

I hope you enjoyed this monthly favourites post. Have you tried any of these products before?
