Pinch and a Punch for the First Day of…. MAY!: April Favorites

AHHH! I can’t believe it’s May already and time for another Monthly Favorite! I’m excited though because that means it’s almost my birthday *little celebratory dance* Anyways. So you know how I have a very structured monthly favorites post? Well I want you to tell me in the comments what you think of this layout in comparison to just chatting about what I liked.

Make-up

This month, I’ve just been absolutely addicted to my MAC Bare Study Paint pot. It’s just something I sweep over my lid because it’s just so easy! The color is just so natural but the shimmer in it makes my eyes just look more awake. I adore this shadow.

Skin Care (Face)

I have to say, apart from my Clarisonic which is just amazing, the actual skin care PRODUCT that I’ve been using every day and that has just worked so so well for me is the Origins Checks and Balances Foaming Cleanser. It’s so so gentle and together with my Clarisonic, helps to make my skin just that much better.

Skin Care (Body)

I’ve been using my Body Shop Cactus Brush with my LUSH products pretty much every single day this month (like ever other month) and even though this is not a new edition, I’ve just been noticing how good it is now because as we go into the colder months, my skin just gets so so dry and gross but this is just buffing away that surface layer of dead skin that tends to look horrible in the colder months.

Hair Care

Image

LUSH’s Conditioner called Retread. I didn’t even have to think about that one. My hair’s just been not behaving that the ends become really really frizzy and dry and split ends emerge non-stop (damn the cold weather) so this has just been so so amazing. I literally bought this around the beginning of last month and I’m halfway through it and my small LUSH American Cream Conditioner.

Nail

I recently got 3 new OPI polishes and I’ve had on Penny for Your Thoughts for the past week or so and I’ve been loving it because although it a light coppery-orange color, it looks quite nice and natural on the nails (obviously not that natural but you know what I mean). There are some pink reflects in it that makes it just that little bit prettier. Not bad OPI, not bad at all.

Fragrance

Image

I’ve been wearing my Victoria’s Secret Body Mist in Coconut Passion and I honestly cannot explain how much I love this scent. Oh. My. GOD it smells amazing. Only annoying thing is that it’s a body mist so therefore doesn’t last long at all. But if I wanted anything for my birthday, it would be a Victoria’s Secret fragrance. Eternal love! I honestly had the hardest time deciding which body mist to get.

Fashion

Image

I got this really amazing blazer that just looks amazing because you must know that my style can get rather preppy so I just ADORE blazers, I just honestly have so so many. But I just love this blazer so much and it’s just become my favorite that quickly. (Note: mine is slightly different from the one in this picture).

Accessory

Image

Definitely my Miu Miu handbag. Hands down. I just love it so so much and I use it to go out shopping or if I have a class, every single time. (Note: Mine is in a pale nude pink color rather than this color).

Book

I read Fight Club this month, I’ve never watched the movie but I thoroughly enjoyed the book, yeah 🙂

Movie

Haven’t watched any :S

Youtuber

Other than the usual suspects, I’ve been really really loving Evelina Barry from Evelinicutza (a new discovery this month).

Blogger

I absolutely adore leblogdebetty. Her posts are always really great, I love her fashion sense and even better is that she look so much like my friend Julia.

I’m such a HAULER!!!

Image

Today, I’m going to do a haul for you because this weekend has been a get-out-and-buy-too-much-stuff type of weekend.

I also have a favour to ask! Please put in the comment section what is your favourite make-up brand, do you like hauls and recommend any post you want me to do.

Okay, I’m going to start with the kit essential stuff.

How cute is that sponge?!?! It’s the Pro-Performance Sponge from Mac and it’s really good for foundation (which is what I’ll use it for) and the strange shape allows it to get into the nooks and crannies of the face.

I have MAC’s full eye-lash curler and I was entranced by the idea of the half eyelash curler. I will get back to you on how it’s going.

The thing of the right is the Green Gel Cleanser/Makeup remover. This stuff is really amazing. It’s like a face wash cleanser because it removes the makeup perfectly (however, the mascara doesn’t like to come off with just this so I use some eye makeup remover) and it also gets rid of the excess oil on my face with out stripping it.

This is my new concealer which works SO SO SO much better then my previous one. It is (I think) the Studio Sculpt one in NC30. I’m not 100% sure because I don’t have it next to me right now

And then a Pencil/bullet brush (219) and a Lash Brush (204)

Here are the eye stuff: starting top to bottom, left to right

Haux (a lovely browny-red colour), Kid (a neutral cream-ish colour), Summer Haze (mineralize eye shadow): an amazing all over the lid colour, Bare Study Paint Pot: another amazing all over the lid colour and also used as a high light, Satin taupe the famous and Pink Venus: an amazing shimmery pink
