Another month has past, and we are all that much closer to summer actually appearing! Today, I have a post all about the things I've been loving in the month of April.

Maybelline BB Cream in Medium, £7.99 (link)

I use this on super natural days, or as a primer when I want heavier coverage. I'm using Medium at the moment to give my skin a bit of a boost in the colour department as summer approaches but light has been a favourite of mine since it was released. 

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15 , £5.99 (link)

 I love this concealer, and I use it for all of my problem areas. It conceals blemishes, under-eye circles and redness. It lasts all day and the formula is brilliant. I did try this before and found the shade to be too dark, but who knew that the first shade (10) isn't the lightest. I found a lighter shade (15) and now it's perfect all round. 

Maybelline Fit Me Powder in 120, £5.99 (link)

I love this powder. It;s a nice, light weight powder that sets my makeup without making it look cakey. It doesn't offer that much coverage which I actually like, and the shade works well with my lighter and darker foundations.

 No matter what foundation I used, this sponge works with it. Some of my brushes only work with certain foundations but this working with everything. It gives a nice flawless coverage without any caking and it even works with cream blushes to get a nice natural look on the skin. 

Soap and Glory Glow Job  (link)

I picked this up when Soap and Glory was on 3 for 2 in Boots and fell in love. You need to make sure that you put this on in a mirror because of the bronzing beads in the lotion but it's a great 'radiance' mosituriser that is great for spring/summer. It's not a self tanner so don't fear, and it doesn't make you look like a TOWIE extra with the bronzing beads so don't fear either. 

MAC Pro-Longwear Blush in Stay Pretty (link)

After hunting for a bright spring time blush, I found this beauty. It's a nice long wearing bright pink that lasts all day on my cheeks, is a nice fine milled powder and amps up a look. The colour is great for the spring summer time. I wear this with super simple eye makeup and nude lips to make it pop and it looks great. 

Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara (link)

 I love this mascara, and am about to go out and purchase the full size. I for this in a little Max Factor gift set, and am so glad that I got to try it. It's a nice rubber wand that allows you to get super black and voluminous lashes. It can clump a little bit to much if you want more than 2 layers, but two layers is great for super amped up lashes. 

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick in 8 Pink in Confidence (link)

I picked this up at the #LDNBBMeet and have worn it nearly every day since. The colour is easy just to throw on with almost any look. It's nice and moisturizing, not drying in anyway and it stays on my lips. The colour is not to nude that you look dead, but also nude enough that it works perfectly everyday.

MUA Liquid Eyeliner in Brown (link)

I'm trying to get away from black liner for the summer, and this is my way of weaning myself off of it. It's a great liquid liner with a nice felt tip type brush. It's only £1, and it lasts all day on my eyes. It doesn't flake or smudge once it's dry, and the brown is just less harsh than black while still giving a nice definition to the eyes. 

Daniel Sandler Velvet Eyeliner in Black (link)

Even though I just said that I am trying to get away from black, I cannot give up my black liner in my water line just yet! This liner is amazing! It is super pigments, creamy but not to creamy, and it lasts all day. It's really black, and I love that its twist up. I never sharpen pencils, I just go find another one so a twist up  one is perfect for me. 

Yardley Royal English Daisy Hand Cream (link)

Review HERE
This hand cream is great, but it's the scent that's my favourite. I adore this scent from Yardley and have the EDT in my bag at all times. I want the shower gel and body lotion just to smell like this all the time. It's a nice light, young, floral scent perfect for spring/summer.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle (link)

Oh, where have you been all my life? This is the perfect scent for me. It lasts ages on the skin, it's a nice mature scent without making you smell like your nan or something and it's chanel. You only need 1 spray to smell like this all day, and the scent is gorgeous.
