April Favourites


beauty-favourites-makeup-skincare-nars-sin-blush-charlotte-tilbury-bitch-perfect-lipstick-oskia-cleanserAnother month over, another round-up of my latest beauty favourites. As you can see, there hasn’t been many favourites this month, only three! I don’t think I have had so little favourites although it isn’t surprising since I have been having more of a makeup-free month. I was going to include some other things such as style pieces however I may reserve that for another post. So rambling over, here is my top 3 products of the month.

Starting with a skincare product, shocker I know! I haven’t really mentioned skincare too much on my blog despite my love for trying out new products. I am still trying to find my way with what works with my skin hence why I have kept it on the down low just now but there is a product I have been liking and is worth a share! The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a cult favourite product and for good reason. I was a little sceptical of the hype with this one but it really does live up to it. Although I will say this cleanser is on the pricey side and I do believe that you could probably find a good cleanser at a much more affordable price that is just as good or better. However it is a nice treat to have and I just love using it. I usually reserve it for my night second cleanse however since I have more time in the morning, I have been using it both morning and night. The gel texture feels so luxurious and rich on the skin and then turns into a oil formula that is washed away to reveal smooth soft skin. Pricey but good!

On to the makeup products, first up is a new addition to my lipstick stash in particular my Charlotte Tilbury collection. I made a little order after months of lusting after the gorgeous K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in the shade Bitch Perfect. I have a few CT lipsticks now but all of which were in the matte formula (which I adore!) however I hadn’t tried the more moisturising creamy formulated line and this nude pink shade was top of my list. I am pretty fussy when it comes to nude lipsticks, there are many different shades available but it can be tricky finding the perfect match for my skin tone that is flattering and doesn’t wash me out. This shade is just so perfect and the formula too. The colour leans on the peachy-pink side of things so offers a soft pop of colour but still remains neutral in tone. The formula is super creamy and hydrating yet the longevity is impressive for such a moisturising lipstick! I need more!

Last of my picks comes from Nars. I am a huge fan of their blushes and it was never going to be long before I picked up another shade. This time I went for Sin, a gorgeous shimmery mauve plum-y toned blush that looks so flattering on my pale skin. The formula of these are great too being super buttery and soft to apply and blend. The pigmentation is also superb and only requires a light hand for pop of colour to the cheeks. Big love to the Nars monochrome packaging too, swoon!

Have you tried any of these products?

  1. Great favorites! Unfortunately, the Kissing lipstick didn’t impress me as much. It looked amazing when paired with the liner, but by itself, for me it was too sheer and I found the lipstick to be too waxy. 😦 I love the Matte Revolution lipsticks though. 🙂
