April Favourites

MAC Lady Danger

MAC Lady Danger (Matte) - £14.00
My newest adition to my MAC Lipstick collection! I've wanted this for months so a few weeks ago I decided to give and got my hands on it. Lady Danger is a bright orange/red lipstick that is certainly a loud statment colour. Being a red hoarder I'm glad I gave in.

John Freida Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight - £6.99
I've raved about this recentely in it's own review so I'll keep it short and sweet. 3 Day Straight is a spray that when locked in with straighteners keeps your hair straight and sleek until it's next wash. I can't say enough good things about this product.

Illamasqua Medium Pencil - Hex - £13.00
We all know the white eye liner trick for opening and brightening the eye area but I find it can be a bit harsh for every day wear. I decided to give Hex a whirl as it's more of a nude colour and I think it's fantastic. Hex gives just enough colour to brighten the eye area naturally and is very long lasting. Also, I think this is the softest eye pencil I have ever used.

HD Brow Kit - £19.96
I bought this after the Glossybox hype as I had seen and heard everyone commenting on how amazing it is. I liked it, then I didn't, then I did again. I'm still not 100% sold on this but it's in my monthly favourites as I've been using it a lot more often. I like how there are 4 colours that can be mixed easily if needed and that they also double up as eye shadow. I also think that they apply really well and have an impressive lasting power. That said, I still think the price tag is a bit on the hefty side. (If anyone in the UK is interested in buying this you can click the link and it takes you to where I bought mine. I've seen a few people say they can't find anywhere to purchase it)

Original Source Tea Tree and Mint Shower Gel - £2.30
Gosh, I love this stuff! I discovered a stash in my room from when I stocked up while it was on offer (oooh, thrifty) and couldn't wait to start using it again. It's so minty and refreshing I can happily use it all summer. Although I could talk on and on about how much I love this that would be really boring so I'm just going to say I love it.

  1. Oooooh I've been eyeing up Lady Danger for ages. I'm just not sure if it's going to go with my super pale skin. I know it's the Saturday's favourite lipstick ever :D xx

  4. Original Source ftw! That's my favourite one as well.

    I was going to get either the HD brows or the Benefit Brow Zings but I was unsure and it is quite a bit of money to part with. I got the MUA Pro Brow Kit for £3.50 instead just to see if I would use it much, and I don't. I prefer my eyebrow pencil and mini comb!

    1. Haha! Soo good isn't it!

      I used to hate pencils but actually really like them now. I've switched to powders for a bit of a change but you can't beat a good pencil xx

    1. Haha I know the feeling. When you don't fill them in it's like your face isn't complete. Odd because brows were something you never bothered with as a teenager aha xx
