I love the month of April as it shows summer is on it's way and I find it's up hill weather wise from now on. This month has been a month to overspend so I thought I would share with you what I have been buying and loving this month.

A lot of my new favourites have had stand alone blog posts just because  I have loved them so much. The Maybelline fit me foundation has become a new favourite and I genuinely pick this to use on an everyday basis( even though I have bought a few foundations this month) it's super smooth to blend and just feels nice on the skin. At £5.99 ( I got mine from Superdrug) it's a brilliant price for an everyday foundation and I would recommend it to everyone to try.
The collection palette has had its own stand alone post as well. It's the new Matte Nude Rose palette and it so beautiful. The middle two shades are amazing and it's worth getting the palette just for the two shades, at £3.99 from Superdrug it's a brilliant price.
Another thing I can't seem to stop buying is Matte lip products and this month has been no exception. Two lip products I have been loving at the moment are quite new to the collection and are both very similar shades. The first one is W7 mega Matte lips nude in the shade caked.. These are amazing and cost £1.99. They never truly set on the lips and definitely don't dry out so feel very comfortable. They do need to be reapplied after a cup of tea but at £1.99 it's well worth a try. Another Lip product I have been loving is from Makeup Revolution Matte lipstick in the shade Wishful. These cost £3 and have simular shaped packaging to a Mac lipstick. The bullet is rose gold and is completely beautiful packaging for a budget price brand. It lasts about the same amount of time as the W7 product but o do drink a lot so on different people it might be more long lasting.

My hair is a complete shambles at the moment, what with all the dye and all the heat it's no wonder it's looking like brunette straw. I'm a one for the GHDs as I think they make my hair look in good condition so I need a little bit of product before applying the heat. I am totally in love with this L'Oréal Studio Pro Sleek It Ultra Smoothing Balm. At £3.49 for the tube and a little goes a long way it's a good price. Its not sticky to use either so it's an all win product and beats more expensive products I've used in the past hands down.

Well you all know I love a cheap perfume and I've done a blog post about how some of the cheaper fragrances last and are worth a purchase instead of spending a fortune.
This month I have bought Two new Fragrances and a fragrance mist. After trying a 5ml sample of the Sarah Jessica Parker NYC, I liked it so much I went out and bought a full 100ml sized bottle. I did have trouble finding it as everywhere didn't seem to sell it so I had to go online. It was £16.99 from a website called "All Beauty" I have bought from there before and it took a couple of days to arrive so all good.
In my last B&M haul I told you about finding the Kate Moss fragrance and this has become my new favourite. It smells wonderful and at £6.99 for 50ml it makes a very good everyday fragrance.
I love a fragrance mist as it's lighter than a perfume and ideal for a summer day so when I saw the Hawaiian Tropics body mists in Superdrug I couldn't wait to try them. My favourite by far of all the four I tried was the Golden Paradise it's has tones of creamy coconut and warm sand it's £10 and smells like holiday in a bottle, The fragrance is lush and smells rather like the drink Malibu.

I have been using anti ageing products for years and never know if they truly work or not, I might look 100 if I hadn't been using them who's to know? But I do love the skin care range from Aldi. Mainly for the price here. The product I am using at the moment is the Lacura Expert Minox Double Effect Eye Gel. I am really enjoying using this product and do find it works a little bit at smoothing my eye wrinkles and at £3.49 it's a great little find.

Well I hope you have enjoyed April as much as I have and would love to hear what you have been loving and buying this month.
Happy Shopping
