My April Favorites.

Hey-ho tweedly peeps,

Yes I know its now May but I wanted to share with you some of the things I've been loving through April. So here they are...

So last Month I've been mainly loving: Rimmel Apocalips in Nude Eclipse, 17 Miracle Matte Foundation in Soft Ivory, L'Oreal Elvive Nutra Gloss Lite Shampoo & Conditioner and Maybelline Color show in Pow Green.

So to wards the end of March I ran out of my Herbal Essence Fresh Balance Shampoo and Conditioner and     have to confess it was a bad time for my hair I really wasn't happy without it but then my little sister Maddie, recommended these to me as she'd used them when she was at my mums and she really liked them. She said they left her hair soft and grease free for longer which for me is always a good selling point as my hair is atrocious at getting greasy easily. I just had to try them, I found these in my local Tesco and they were on off buy one get one free so I picked these up and also some more of the herbal essence, but I decided to try these out and wowser! I'm hooked they are truly incredible. I'd tried nutragloss before (the original one) and that did nothing for my hair, but these leave my hair feeling so soft and clean and it smells amazing I love it and will definitely be getting it again, although probably when its on offer as its about £3 each in most places.

All you make-up lovers will probably already be familiar with the MUA heaven and earth palette as its been boasted as a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked palette. I really like this and at only £4 from super-drug you cant really go wrong. I love the pigmentation of the shadows and they wear really well with minimal creasing I tend to use the top left colour as a base on my lid then choose any of the darker shades for my crease depending on my mood, I've also started lazily using it for my brows so I don't need to carry so much make up with me and I generally go for the dark brown bottom right for my brows. I couldn't tell you how it compares to the Urban Decay naked palette as I've never tried it but personally I prefer the packaging to this one I hear alot of complaints about the naked one on reviews but this is really nice a plastic case that's slim-line and doesn't take up too much space in my make-up bag.

I have to admit I loved this polish before I'd even tried it, I saw a OOTD post by LLYMLRS where she was wearing this colour and I was mesmerized by it and had wanted it since then, so when I found out that my wife (melody-moo-nails) had just bought it for £2 in Asda I knew I had to have it. I finally got my hands on it in Boots for £2.99 but it was 2 for 1 so that wasn't so bad. This is a really nice neon green and it goes on really nicely and lasts a good couple of days before chipping. I tend to get alot of compliments  when I wear this colour as it is quite an unusual colour.

Again a familiar product if you read alot of beauty blogs is this the Rimmel Apocalips, I have mine in Nude Eclipse which is a really nice peachy toned nude colour hence the name but I've really been enjoying wearing the neutral lip recently and this is a great drugstore product. Its a really thick formulated lacquer great pigmentation and is quite long lasting I don't think its as long lasting as some of the other shades in the range but it is really nice, smells like cucumbers too...


Lastly then for my April favorites is the 17 Miracle Matte Foundation which I love its just a great foundation and I've done a full review of this product which you can read by clicking here. Now I've been using this pretty much everyday and I cant find a fault with it and it is starting to run-out which is slightly saddening me a little, but I will be definitely repurchasing it when its life has been depleted.

thanks for reading
