April Favourites 2017

It's monthly favourites time,  I love looking back on the month and thinking about what products and things I have been loving. So lets just get straight into it...

Ted Baker Makeup Bag
This was the month where I really needed a new makeup bag, mine was very battered around, the zip had fallen off and it was just full of foundation marks. So I took a trip into Boots and found this gorgeous Ted Baker bag. The reason I love it so much, is that it honestly fits everything in! I am the type of person that will take a nude, pink and red lipstick and I will take a few different eye palettes depending on the lipstick... I am a nightmare. Also, how pretty is it? 

No7 Serum - SKINCARE
No7 launched their newest serum to their collection 'Restore and Renew Face and Neck Serum' which is for mature skin, to fade away any creepiness. I don't actually need that serum YET, but I did purchase their serum for the first signs of ageing. So far I have been using it for about 3 weeks, and I can already see improvements. Especially with my under skin spots *cry* they have really faded! 

L'Oreal Moistriser - SKINCARE
This is such a weird product and it isn't actually what I thought it was, I thought it was a serum type of product and I just threw it in my basket because it was on offer and I said to myself 'I will give it a go'. But it's actually a moisturiser, a lot like the Lancome Energy de vie. I have found it's really nice and cooling on the skin. Sinks in beautifully, a very watery texture, but I really like that. The only thing I will say, is that it is quite highly fragranced, like a lot of L'Oreals skincare. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara - MAKEUP
I have actually used this mascara before and I am sorry if I have mentioned it somewhere before. But I can't remember mentioning it, so I thought I would speak about it now. The reason I love this mascara is because it just seems to make my lashes look like theres lots and lots of lashes that I didn't even know I had. It's an amazing all round mascara, it gives length, volume and so much definition! 

NYX Dewy Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray - MAKEUP
Again a product I have used before and that I have repurchased this month. The reason I don't think I've mentioned this before is because back then I hadn't really tried many setting sprays, but now I have tried a few more. The NYX one is amazing for the price and the best one I've found in the drugstore. I love the actual spray on it, it doesn't just hit you in the face, its much more of a mist which is the real reason it's the best I've found. Also, it definitely makes a difference to the staying power of my makeup! 

This isn't a new launch for Dior, their newest fragrance in the poison range is 'Dior Poison Girl EDT' which is very sweet. However, I have come across pure poison  it's a very distinctive scent, strong but not too strong, floral but just incredible. I have been wearing this pretty much every day this month and I really love it! Not your typical spring fragrance, but one you NEED to go and smell! 

Alessia Cara - MUSIC
I have honestly been obsessed with this girl recently, I think her voice is amazing, I love every song she's made. I haven't really listened to anything but her! My favourite songs are 'wild things (acoustic version) and scars to your beautiful' LOVE HER
