A quick rundown of beauty products and a few other bits I’ve been loving throughout April for you guys..
Firstly, a product that anyone who follows Fleur’ blog will already of seen, but I’m sharing the love for Nip and Fabs pistachio body butter ! The smell really reminds me of a Yankee candle that was given to me for Christmas (Christmas treats I think it’s called). At the moment its reduced from £9.95 to £4.95, which I think is super reasonable. It goes on really nicely without leaving you with that greasy feeling and I find a little bit goes quite a long way, which is perfect because when I have a product I really like I tend to try to make it last for ever !
Next on my list is my mascara of choice for the month; Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping mascara. I found myself reaching for this over the past few weeks rather than my normal go-to choices. I bought it because I liked the idea of a mascara that did my lashes some good rather than damaging them. Although it doesn’t work miracles; don’t expect your lashes to double in length or anything drastic like that, but they are a little thicker and it has a nice, easy to remove formula. You can pick this little beaut up at boots for £9.99..
My last beauty favourite this month is my MAC 168 angled contouring brush. I was given this a while ago and I tend to go through phases of using it, every time I go back to it I question why I don’t use it daily? It’s a really dense brush, which means you can blend products really easily with plenty of control and it’s the perfect size for contouring the hollow of your cheeks. I don’t have hundreds, but I think that a good brush is an investment and you pretty much get what you pay for, in this case £26.
For non-beauty favourites this month I have been absolutely glued to the hunger games trilogy. I bought the first one for my iPad a couple weeks ago after I saw the teaser trailer for the second film (super excited!) and before I even knew it I had finished the first book, simple couldn’t put it down and finished all three in 2 weeks !
My second non-beauty fave this month is Game of Thrones. A little late on the band wagon I know, but i didn’t watch them from the start and last week my boyfriend decided I needed to watch it so we gave a day to it and cracked the whole of the first series in one day, a tad sad but hey ho… It’s a bit gory so if you’re squeamish then maybe stear clear or find a pillow to hide behind during those bits !
