April 2013 Favourites

I have a lot of old favourites this month and a couple of new ones as well. Some of the products are ones I use every week and I somehow always overlooked them for these posts. So let’s get started!

01. Nail Polish : Illamasqua : Phallic

Phallic is such a beautiful deep shimmery blue. You could say it’s the perfect midnight blue. I will gush more about this in a another dedicated post, but I was wearing this a lot this month. I really loved the quality as well.

 

02. Nail Polish : Illamasqua : Viridian

I bought this and Phallic at the same time. I’m in love with this as well. It looks amazing on nails. I was pretty much alternating between this and Phallic all month long.

 

03. Nail Polish : Zoya : Penny

Penny was my favoured toe nail polish this month. I was just in the mood for orange with shimmer!

 

04. Basecoat : Zoya : Anchor

Zoya Anchor basecoat is one I use. It dries very quickly and has been very reliable.

 

05. Topcoat : Revlon : Topcoat

My favourite topcoat! It’s not the quickest when it comes to drying time but I love it all the same.

 

06. Eye Shadow : Urban Decay : Naked Palette

As you might have seen in my rose gold tutorial, this is one palette I always reach for in the end. I should probably not buy any other eye shadows… we’ll see how that goes! 😉

 

07. Eye Shadow : Mac : Satin Taupe

When I did look beyond the naked palette, I used the colours in combination with Satin Taupe and Amber Lights. This is such a smooth and pretty colour.

 

08. Eye Shadow: Mac : Amber Lights

Amber Lights really brightens the eye and I love the intensity, it’s just right.

 

09. Face Pack : Fabindia : Aloe & Cucumber Gel Face Pack

For the hot summer days, this face pack really makes you feel nice and cool. It’s a bit of a pain to remove, but those 5-10 minutes of coolness and calm are worth it.

 

10. Mascara : Revlon : Grow Luscious Mascara in Blackest Black

Another staple favourite. It’s been my go to mascara for quite a few months.

 

11. Lipstick : Mac : Plumful

I bought Plumful in April itself and I’m love with the colour. It’s not too bright nor too dull. The colour is really beautiful. Since it’s lustre you can wear it lightly as well. I highly recommend this!

 

12. Lipstick : Shiseido : Perfect Rogue in Pink Messa (PK 303)

Pink Messa is the perfect nude lipstick for me. I sometimes like to wear just this or a bit of gloss over it. I love how even it looks and doesn’t wash me out. It’s very moisturising as well.

 

13. Blush : Mac : Plum Foolery

Plum Foolery is a pretty dark plummy pink with gold shimmer. It looks great on my skintone.

 

14. Lip Scrub : Lush : Sweet Lips lip scrub

This is such a yummy product! I have to fight the urge to not eat it everytime I put it on! But the scrub works well too without feeling too abrasive.

 

15. Lip Balm :  Carmex : Cherry Flavoured lip Balm

I still have dry lips!!! I don’t need heavy duty stuff but I still lip balms on a daily basis. I love the cherry scent this has, it’s yum! What I like about Carmex is that it lasts longer for 4-5 hours. Some of my other lip balms disappear after 2 hours.

 

What were your favourites this month? I know I haven’t mentioned a lot of skincare here. I’m still using pretty much everything from last month’s favourites too.
