I thought I would get back on track with my blogging schedule and post my favourite products for April. As I have spent the last few weeks travelling overseas and then quickly back into a very busy work schedule, it has all been about minimalist products that do a great job every time.
Maybelline Color Tattoo Bad To The Bronze
I haven’t used this for a long time and was worried that it had dried out too much for me to use – but it was fine with a Real Techniques eye shadow brush. This colour is such a good everyday choice and can be built up for quite a dramatic evening look. I used this a couple of times when I was away and have reached for it more since I have been home to get me through some long days at work.
NARS Duo – Orgasm Blush & Laguna Bronzer
This miniature travel duo is fantastic and all you need when you are on the road. These cult status products deliver for an everyday look or for a full face special event look. If you haven’ tried either of these products this mini duo from Sephora is an excellent way to test them out and add them to your collection.
Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
This was amazing during my holiday. It just supported my skin through the long haul flights and the change in temperatures. I had a travel size that was fantastic and I took the opportunity to purchase a full size in Sephora to take advantage of the cost difference from the US to Australia.
Bumble & Bumble Grooming Creme
Love this product and the fact that it comes in this travel size. It helped me through the humidity of Singapore and the heat of southern California. Applying it to damp hair it seals the hair cuticle and makes it easier to style and ‘groom’ into place.
Josie Maran Argan Black Oil Mascara
I’ve mentioned this before. I was nicely surprised by the formulation of this mascara and it creates a nice every day look and doesn’t irritate the eyes. I will repurchase once I get through the other mascaras that I have waiting patiently to try.
Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm
Airplane travel brings with it dehydrated skin and lips. This is the only lip treatment that works for me. This pot travels everywhere with me and it just works. Love it.
Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss – 02 Raspberry
I’ve included some more glosses in my makeup bag lately to mix things up a bit and also given the small travel size these were great to take with me overseas. This colour is a little more brighter than what I normally go for and to be honest that was the appeal. I loved wearing this in the evening when I was on holiday and has also been great for day to night work functions.
Benefit Hoola Ultra Plush Lip Gloss
Was nicely surprised by this one. Love the colour and the consistency and have been enjoying a return to gloss lately.
Invite Concentrated Vitamin E Cream
I’ve had some pimple issues as well as some scarring on my hands from some kitchen burns and this is what I turn to. It always seems to help my skin renew and brightens dark spots and scars.
Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion – Honey Indulging
With the change in season, comes the annual hunt to maintain body moisture and I find that this product helps me with that. I continue to be on a really honey scented kick at the moment so this fits in really well for my evening shower routine. Need to repurchase another one!
Sephora Seamless Hair Ties
I got sucked into these at the checkout aisle at Sephora. But I have to say, I do like these for nightime and have taken to wearing these in my hair to go to bed. I purchased them in the pink tone knowing that I wouldn’t be using them for work.
fresh Brown Sugar eau de parfum
I picked this up in Singapore in the handbag size and I continue to love the refreshing scent. I keep this in my handbag and spritz at work when I have to go from office to work function. I might have to purchase the full size when this runs out……
It’s all coming to an end…..and it’s been interesting so far with lot’s of debate about how it will all end. Will miss the characters, the fashion, the history…..it’s definitely going to be one to re-watch in years to come.
This is the best show on TV and it frustrates me that it hasn’t won the awards that it so deserves. The finale of Season 3 was amazing and has set up Season 4 perfectly – and I can’t wait.
What did you love in April?
