April Favourites

So this month has been pretty hectic. Schoolwork has basically taken over my life! I'm midway through my exams at the moment, I finish on the 15th of May, can't wait! Anyway, I've not been putting on too much makeup this month as I've either been studying at home in sweats or in school doing an exam. However, I do still have a few things I've been loving.

MAC eyeshadow in Satin Taupe

MAC eyeshadow in Satin Taupe £12- This eyeshadow is fantastic. Definitely my favourite Mac eyeshadow at the moment. It's a cool toned brown with some mauve undertones (aka taupe), and it has a little bit of silvery shimmer. Not too shimmery though, it's more of a shine. It looks great on its own or as a lid colour, or even a crease colour. This has a lovely velvety texture which blends so well! I think it's a must have for any neutral fanatic like me!

Rimmel Stay Matt Powder in Transparent £3.99- So, I finally jumped on the band-waggon and bought this early in April. It's really good for the price! Not the best powder, but amazing for £3.99. It does the job for me, keeping me shine-free all day long. I just press a little bit of this of with a Bareminerals brush along the t-zone to stop me from being an oily mess! The packaging does feel cheap but for the price that is understandable. But for the price, why not!?

Sephora's Express Nail Polish Remover €7.90- This is the best nail polish remover I've ever used! I started using this ages ago, but this month I've been loving it even more as it's so quick and easy to use. On the inside of this little tub there is a sponge which you wipe your finger against and it instantly removes all your nailpolish. It also smells so good, it leaves you with fruity smelling nails. For anyone else in britain, you can't get a hold of this. I stock up on mine every year when I'm in France. There are a few dupes for these that are available in britain. Bourjois have one that is available in boots for £4.99, Nails Inc also have one that you can buy on their website for £7.00.

Maybeline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow in 35 On and On Bronze

Maybeline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow in 35 On and On Bronze £4.99- These are amazing! They are an exact dupe for the MAC paint pots. This colour is so pretty and looks great as a base for a dramatic eye, or on its own for a whop of colour. It's a lovely brown toned bronze with a metalic shine to it. I love the texture of these, they're so creamy but dry almost powdery. This also has staying power, so it lasts all day!

 Thanks for reading. What have your favourites been this month?
