April Beauty 2014

With my spending ban ending at the start of the month meant I was able to buy a couple of new things. I wanted to try the Garnier Micellar Water but it was sold out in every shop I went into so I decided to repurchase the L'Oreal version. I bought this when it was first released and loved it immediately. It's the closest to Bioderma Micellar Solution that I've tried so far. It doesn't irritate my eyes, which is what I mainly use it for, and gets rid of every bit of make-up. Plus it's also half the price of Bioderma and easier to get a hold of, I don't have to order it online.

Another new couple of purchases are the Barry M polishes, I just fell in love with the colours. I'm a sucker for pastel polishes, it's probably my favourite type of polish to wear. The two colours are Rose Hip and Sugar Apple. I also really love the Gelly formula as they have a slightly thicker consistency which makes it easier to apply and has a high shine finish. Another polish I've been loving this month is Illmasqua's Mottle from the I'mperfction collection. A polish I completely forgot about after I bought it but have been wearing a lot this month. You can see my NOTD here.

My current perfume of choice is Elie Saab Le Parfum. It's not a particularly spring scent which I usually go for, think Marc Jacobs Dasiy, but I just can't get enough of it and have been wearing it everyday for a couple of months. The notes are orange blossom, jasmine absolute, patchouli, cedar woody accord and honey rose. It also lasts an incredibly long time so is perfect for long shifts at work. If I go to put a piece of clothing on that I haven't worn for a couple of day I can still smell the perfume.

Finally my last favourite product from April is the Fresh Brown Sugar Lipbalm. I thought I'd completely lost this lipbalm but found it had rolled under my bed whilst hoovering. I've been using it daily as I've had very dry lips recently but also to make up for not having it in my life for a couple of weeks. I've only got a small amount of it left so a repurchase will have to be made soon.

  1. I so wish we got Barry M polishes in the US! They seem to be so reasonably priced and almost every shade I've seen looks lovely. The two you picked out are especially gorgeous :)
