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 😉
Fortunately, May has come to my rescue! And spring has arrived! YES, love it!
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 😉
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 😉
Have a lovely day/night
Thanks for reading
