April Favourites

1. Too Faced Natural Eyeshadow Palette 

I bought this palette last year and have only recently realised my love for it. There's not one shade that I don't use and I find the compact packaging, mirror and natural shades so handy and convenient for all occasions. Good job Too Faced.

2. BabyBliss Argan Oil Restorative Hair Mask 

I have the thickest, frizziest, dry hair you could possibly imagine and I LOVE this hair mask. It's cheap ($12.50 from and works better than any other expensive hair mask that I've tried in terms of restoring strength, shine, hydration and life back into my hair. There's no point in spending loads on a hair mask guys, believe me.

3. MAC Highlighter Pen in "Radient Rose" 

I've been really into highlighting pens as of late (I'm talking major eye bags) and reached for this one by MAC a lot throughout the month of April. Super effective in cancelling out dark under eye circles and making you look more awake. I also use this product on the other highlighting points of my face and find it blends very easily into my foundation when using a finger or a beauty blender :) 

4. The Body Shop Lip Balm in "Strawberry"

Honestly guys, this lip balm smells so delicious and I have to say, tastes pretty good also *mischievously giggles*. It moisturises my lips very well but the real reason I love it so much and have been using it a lot throughout April is because the slight tint of the balm gives my lips a gorgeous, healthy look. If you'd like to see what it looks like on, I've used it in a previous FOTD blog post HERE.

5. Australis Clear Brow Gel 

This product is for your lashes AND brows but I just use it in my brows and I love it. It does everything a good clear brow gel should do and at only $10.95, you really can't go wrong.

6. Alpha H Liquid Gold

Up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea what the heck this product was. As I was browsing the web for a new skincare routine (my skin was going mental at the time), I came across Alpha H products and found pages and pages of reviews saying that this Liquid Gold is amazing and I believe it also won an award. Clearly it doesn't take me much to get sucked into buying a new product but boy am I happy that I was. 

If I'm entirely honest, I still don't quite get what it is but I've been using it every second night on my face by applying a little (you need the smallest amount) onto a cotton pad and wiping it over my face before moisturising and when I wake up in the morning, my skin is as smooth as ever and just way more clear, even toned and healthy looking. It does tingle a little when you first apply it but that goes away quickly and I'm pretty sure it's supposed to do that (haha, I hope so anyway because I don't plan to stop using this product any time soon). 

7. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in "Ivory" 

This foundation has been sitting amongst my makeup collection for awhile now but I've never really used it until now. I've been loving this foundation mainly because it's getting into the colder months in Australia and I find the formula to hydrate and illuminate my increasingly dryer, more dull looking skin. This foundation and I are a match made in heaven ;)

8. MAC Strobe Cream 

For the same reasons as using the foundation, I've been loving this strobe cream because it's super hydrating and the light reflecting particles really illuminate my skin to make it look like better looking skin. I've previously done a review on this product which you can read HERE.

9. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthor Golden 

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down until I was finished. The style of writing is like nothing I've really ever read before and opened my mind up to a whole new world that I never knew existed. Truly incredible and 100% worth a read.
