April 2012 Beauty Favourites

I'm so glad April is over, it was a washout... literally. Hopefully May brings with it some nice weather (fingers crossed). Back to my April favourites, I'm sure most of these products will come as no surprise to you, I have probably mentioned them all in some way or another this month.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake
This is the only make up remover I've used this months and I'm obsessed, yes I know it's hard to get hold of and it's pretty expensive but in my opinion it's totally worth it. I've even bought a mini version for when I go on holiday, you can read my full review of this product here.

Models Own Head Kandi Polish in Ibiza Mix:
How could I not mention this polish, it's stunning. you can see it featured in my nail of the day here. I have to say I'm in love with the whole Head Kandi collection, but this is definitely one of the standouts.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation:
This is one of those foundations that I've had in my collection for over a year and barely used. At the time I thought it was an ok foundation but nothing special, however I pulled it out again this month to give it another go and I've completely changed my mind. It's lovely, perfect for my oily skin.

Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake:
Out of the 4 lip butters I bought this has been my most used one, it's so easy, you just swipe it on and you're ready to go. It's so moisturising and the colour is gorgeous, a lovely warm pink.

L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara:
I was given this mascara by my mum and I love it. For some reason all the mascaras I've been using lately have been smudging and creating huge black marks under my eyes, all my mascaras except this one. It's been a lifesaver, thanks mum.

Neal & Wolf Harmony Intensive Care Treatment:
I received this in my Glossybox a while ago and I started using it again this month. Instead of using it by itself I've been mixing it with my regular conditioner, to just give my hair a little more intensive conditioning. I really recommend mixing products, it's especially perfect if you're in rush and don't have 15-20 minutes to deep condition your hair, plus it smells amazing.

Let me know what you've been loving this month, have you tried any of the products I've mentioned.

XOXO Claire
