Star Products of the Month • April


It's that monthly round up time again and apologies for the lateness this month as I have been bed bound with the flu which is never pleasant, but never the less I have rounded up what products I have really been loving during the month of April, so here they are ... (quite a few as per usual!).



Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette
1. Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadow Palette (here)
This one shall come as no surprise if you have been reading my blog this month as I featured a full review about it here. This is such a lovely palette thats made with real cocoa powder so not only do the powders themselves have healing properties but they smell of chocolate too - oh yes! It features an array of wearable shades in matte, shimmer and glitter finishes that are all highly pigmented and so beautiful. If you are on the look out for a new eyeshadow palette then I highly recommend the Too Faced palette as the quality is superb and this one injects a little fun into your everyday makeup routine.

Nailene Full cover Oval Nails
2. Nailene Oval Nails (here)
I don't often wear these type of stick on nails as if worn too much they can damage the natural nail bed like most nail extensions can, but having very short nails myself I brought these for when I fancy a bit of a change or have a special occasion where I want longer nails and to do them myself at home. I love this oval/stilletto nail shape at the moment as it feels so feminine and glamourous. I was so impressed with this nail kit as you get 200 nails in a variety of sizes that fit your nails very precisely and the glue really does hold well. Once fitted I then painted them with a gel polish and they were pristine for nearly two weeks! Now thats a whole lot cheaper than a salon treatment and one you can do at home anytime you need. I shall always keep a box of these in my stocks from now as I just love them. 

Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Perfect Skin Foundation spf15, No 4 Fair
3. Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation Spf15 (here)
Once again, if you have read my blog recently you shall see a full review here about this foundation as I absolutely have 100% fallen in love with it. Since purchasing this in March I have used it almost non stop as it really is such a lovely, everyday lightweight foundation that smoothes, hydrates and minimises pores to give you perfect looking skin. This is the perfect foundation going forward into summer as it gives more coverage than a tinted moisturiser but has that same lightweight feel that you want in the summer months. The packaging is stunning and being in a plastic bottle it's so travel friendly. I highly recommend this one if you are on the look out for a new summer foundation. 


Sephora Instant Glitter Nail Polish Remover
4. Sephora Instant Nail Polish Remover for Glitter (here & here)
These type of nail polish removers where you just pop your finger inside the sponge and in seconds your nail polish is gone have been so popular over the past few years as I for one love them. They make removing nail polish a dream instead of a chore. We all know the bain of trying to remove glitter polishes as they hang on for dear life and before you know it you have gone through a whole pack of cotton wool pads and a whole bottle of remover (and probably still have the polish on?!) Well not anymore because those gods called Sephora have come up with a new instant remover formula that takes off glitter polish! A must have purchase for anyone who uses glitter polish as you shall need this on your life. We salute you again Sephora. 


Giorgio Armani Eye Tint,  No8 Flannel
5. Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in No 8 (here here)
This has been my go to 'look like I have spent ages on my eyeshadow but I haven't' type product this month. This is the easiest eyeshadow tint I have ever applied that looks so beautiful and stays put for the whole time you are wearing it. Just a few coats of this with a matte brown shadow buffed into my crease has been my everyday eye look that I have been loving. I wrote a whole review about it here and I had to include it in my favourites as I literally have not stopped wearing it since I bought it. These are pricey I know but if your after something a little special or something that you can wear with minimal effort then this is your guy. I am so eyeing up a few more shades to add to my collection! 

Tanya Burr Lipgloss, Picnic in the Park 
Tanya Burr Lipgloss, Picnic in the Park
6. Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Picnic in the Park (here & here)
I am totally loving these lip glosses by YouTube Beauty Guru Tanya Burr as the quality and price of them is so good. The texture is thick and glossy and some of the colours are more opaque than others giving the look of a glossy lipstick where others are more glittery and shiny. I have a few shades but this month I have been loving the shade Picnic in the Park which is a bright pink/coral as I have been transitioning into a spring/summer lip and this worn alone or over a similar toned lipstick really gives a pretty spring look. For a drugstore product these are brilliant and recommend trying them out for sure.

Invisibobble Hair bands, Clear and black
7. Invisi-Bobble Traceless Hair Bands (here)
It may seem strange adding a hair band into the mix but these are incredible. Invisibobble are eco-friendly hair bands that are traceless, with strong grip, don't cause split ends, avoid giving you headaches, waterproof and suit and hold any hair type! They look and feel like telephone cord which is fun and come in array of different colours. I got the clear and black and since I got these all my other hair ties have been made redundant as these are insanely good and really do work! You can even style your hair with them with no need for hair pins or grips. These are especially good if you have hair extensions as they protect the hair and bonds from any snagging, pulling or kinking. I love them! 


I can't say enough good things about my favourites this month as they genuinely are all amazing products and hope that this gives you some inspiration for trying out some new things. I have so many products I have been loving lately so expect next months to be another jam packed one! 

Whats been your no.1 product so far this month?
