April Favourites

April 30, 2014

See what I've been loving this month!

It seems by some coincidence everything I've been loving in April has been pink or in pink packaging. On Wednesdays we wear pink, springs to mind...

Soap and Glory's Sugar Crush range gets mixed reviews. Personally, I love it, the sweet scent smells good enough to eat and I like using the body buttercream after a shower following on from the body wash. The sweet lime scent is just so fresh and citrusy, I love it - did I mention that already?

Models Own 'Bubblegum' was the first nail varnish I bought from the brand. If I remember correctly, it came in a beauty box last summer from Selfridges. At first I thought it was way too bright for me, but I actually love how it gives outfits a pop of colour and although it's bright neon pink, it doesn't wash out my (already very) pale skin tone. I've actually just picked up a new Models Own nail varnish in Boots, oh you 3 for 2 how you tempt me!

The final two products I've found myself using together almost everyday. L'Oréal Collection Privée Color Riche lipsticks are all nudes named after a celebrity that would suit that shade. The idea is that you'll be able to get a nude lipstick to suit you by picking the celebrity that has a similar skin tone to you. I've got 'Julianne's Nude' which is a great nude pink for me as she's fair skinned with freckles (just like me) and I like to put the L'Oréal L'Extraordinaire by Color Riche liquid lipstick in 'Rose Melody' on top to add a glossy rose sheen which lasts for hours. They've been compared to YSL glossy stains and at a fraction of the price, they're amazing. I'm already tempted to swatch more next time I visit Boots!

  1. I absolutely love the Sugar Crush scrub. I'm yet to try any of the other products in the range but the body buttercream is going on my list of products to try! Raspberrykiss xo

    1. Mmm do it! It might even be on 3 for 2 in Boots at the moment, since I know the beauty stuff is back on offer. Definitely worth having a look, just in case x

  2. I cannot get enough of the Sugar Crush scent, I completely love it. Love the lip products you've picked out too, been coveting both for quite some time!

    1. It's just such a lovely scent isn't it?! Glad you're a fan too :)

  3. I really want to try out that Sugar Crush, but I have't heard about the nude lipsticks, they sound really interesting!

    1. You should! Give them a swatch when you're next in Boots/Superdrug/an equivalent.. I really like them, but the lipstick gets a few mixed reviews as it's got a bit of a scent to it that seems to put some people off. I'm not too bothered by it though, but if you're someone who isn't keen on scents and artificial ones in particular, then it's just worth considering x

  4. Mmmmmmm... Soap and Glory, brilliant choice. Love that stuff. Loving your blog!! x
