Monthly Favourites: April 2013

It’s a new month, which means time for the monthly favourites. April have been long and cold for me. I think it’s because of the weather I’m a person who get really effected by the weather, and when it’s sunny and warm I feel much better and fresh. But here in Denmark it has been really cold and non-springy. Plus, I was sick for 2 weeks of the month, which doesn’t make it better. I did a “how to survive sickness” post if you haven’t read it πŸ˜‰
Fortunately, May has come to my rescue! And spring has arrived! YES, love it!

Without even thinking about it I had 6 favourites where I had 2 products in 3 categories: Brushes, Make up and Hair. Lets get going with the first category: Brushes.

REAL TECHNIQUES Buffing Brush: I freaking love all of my Real Techniques brushes! The quality is amazing and it applies the make up so nicely. I would definitely recommend this brand to you. If you don’t have any of these brushes and want to know more about them you can take a peek here and if you want to see my first impression of The Core Collection here’s a link.
This brush in particular is the Buffing Brush. I use it to buff my foundation into my skin. It works perfectly and distribute the foundation lovely on my face. I’m in LOVE with this brush.

MAC 217 brush: I love this brush. I’ve been wanting this for a while and after I purchased it, I’ve been using this every time I’m wearing eyeshadow. I’m actually consider buying one more. I use this both for applying eyeshadow but also for blending the eyeshadow. It’s just a beautiful brush.

My second category this month – and probably a lot of other months – is Make Up:

EYE LIPS FACE (E.L.F.) Golden Bronzer:  I’ll be doing a E.L.F make up review of the products I bought two months ago which I made a first impression on here. But this bronzer is really good. I don’t use it as a bronzer, I use it as a highlighter and occasionally as eyeshadow. It gives a beautiful highlight to the skin and I really adore the packaging.

MAYBELLINE Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24H: I’ve been using this loads in April and I’ll probably also be using this loads in the future. I’ve been using this for a neutral eye look with a bright lip. This is also a product that I’ll be doing a review on. But I have to say I really LOVE it.

My third and last category is Hair

JOICO K-Pak Color Therapy: In the beginning of April I went to the hairdresser and got my hair did. I cut a haircut – 15 cm was lying on the floor when I left, and got it coloured too. No surprise to a lot of you that I got it ombre. Yes, I know that in a lot of countries I’m behind in that trend, but here in Denmark people haven’t really picked it up, yet, so you can say that I’m ahead of the trend here πŸ˜‰
Now, let’s get going with this product which I bought it at the hairdresser. This oil is made for coloured hair, which is perfect. I use it both in damp and dry hair. In damp hair for a leave-in-treatment and in dry hair to give it a little more shine. Just one pump is fine – sometimes I use a bit more for the bleached ends.

REMINTON Pearl Pro Curl: This is a curling iron I use A LOT. Because of its big thickness? If you can it like that. It gives my hair big, beautiful Hollywood waves. It is 32 mm (1.25 inches). I use is both for day and night. For day I just take bigger wisps of hair so I give a bit more neutral look.

I think that was it. It have been a less-make-up-month as I’ve been sick and I’m studying for an exam so I stayed and still staying home a lot.

I would love to know what your favourites was in April – let me know in the comments below. I love reading others favourites to find new products that I can try – my purse however hates them πŸ˜‰

Have a lovely day/night

Thanks for reading
Love Marie-Louise xx

    Looking forward to the ELF reviews! I haven't invested in any of the products yet because I am a bit sceptical about the quality.

    Love the monthly faves. I am also loving the RT brushes atm. Have you tried the eye brushes? I can't seem to push myself to pay the Β£20 for the little set, but they look so good!

    Loving the blog πŸ™‚

    I'm so tempted buy the MAC 217, I went to the CCO today and bought the 234 I think?

    I love it when people use products meant for something else on other parts e.g. your elf bronzer πŸ˜› Xxx

    This was also my first order from Elf, as I also have to order online. But it's easy, cheap and they have a lot of discount days. So the next time they have a discount, I'll palce one more order πŸ™‚

    Oh, I really want to try some nyx products too! xx

    Yes, I was a bit sceptical too, but some og the products are surprisingly good.

    I LOVE monthly faves too. I'm going to place an order on the eye brushes soon. I think it's a bargin for 5 lovely brushes.
