Five Things I Love: April 2017

It has been a while since I shared a monthly favourites, but I’ve got some real loves at the mo, so I thought I’d share them.  It’s pretty make-up heavy with four out of the five products being make-up, but the one skincare inclusion is a cracker.

I’m having a total love affair with IT Cosmetics at the moment as they really do create some amazing products.  I have two of them in my favourites for April, the first of which is the CC Colour Correcting Full Coverage Cream, which I’ll review fully soon, but my goodness this product is amazing! Expect serious coverage in a gorgeous, creamy formula that looks absolutely *amazing* on skin.  It’s £35 (with a brush) here – link.  The other IT Cosmetics product is the Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara, which really is one of those products with the wow factor and it’s actually really well priced – £23 for TWO here – link.  The Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner is extremely gentle yet really effective at leaving skin feeling exfoliated without any aggravation, so I can get away with using it in the AM and PM.  It’s £17 here – link.

The Estee Lauder Pure Colour Love Lipsticks are really fab, with the shade Crazy Beautiful being, I think, my most favourite lipstick shade of all-time as it’s just everything I’ve ever wanted in a lipstick colour and formula! I’ll review it more fully soon, but the full collection is here – link – where each lipstick is £19. Finally, Shade 1 of Benefit’s Gimme Brow is an absolute star that provides just the right depth of colour so that I can quickly brush my brows into shape on low-key days.  I’ve always said that Gimme Brow is my favourite brow product ever, as it makes such a significant difference to brows, it’s very easy to use and it lasts for ages. It’s £20 here – link.

    It’s good to know about the Gimme Brow – I’m starting to run low on my current “brow mascara” product, and I wanted to try a new one because the current one is just meh – not bad enough to get rid of, not good enough to repurchase. I’ll have to take a look at this!

    I’m also using the It Superhero mascara right now – it’s right up there with their Hello Lashes in holy grail status (along with Benefit Rollerlash). Incredible stuff – goes on smooth, lasts all day, I can’t remember ever seeing a flake.

      Honestly the Gimme Brow is the absolute best; I’ve made my way through so many tubes already and I’m yet to find anything that comes close to it.

      Isn’t the IT mascara phenomenal?! I couldn’t believe it when I first applied – it genuinely looked like false lashes! I’m thrilled they’re not taking the mickey with the price either.
