April Favourites

April has been a month of trying out new products for me, and here is my pick of the bunch in the form of my April Favourites.

First up comes from Collection's Eyes Uncovered Palette in Nude Bronze which contains six golden shimmer shades. This is a great little palette for the price of just £3.99, I find there is a tiny bit of fall down from the shadows but nothing too significant. The pigmentation within this palette is really great and a little goes along way, similar to Urban Decay's Naked Palettes. I highly recommend this if you are on a budget, or just wanting to add some new eyeshadow shades to your collection. 

Next up, is two products from Maybelline which I have been absolutely loving. The Master Precise Eyeliner in Black/Noir, this has been the best find of the month with out a doubt, I am planning on doing a separate post with some up close shots showing you just how great it is. It does just as it states it is perfect for precision it does not flake at all and stays put literally all day which is exactly what I am wanting for £5.99 it, is a real gem. I have loved having the Colour Drama Lipstick in Minimalist in my handbag this month, as it is brilliant for when you are on to go. The chunky end allows you to apply it simply, a great plus is there is not as much precision needed compared with a standard lipstick. The colour is perfect as it is a pinky/nude and goes with any kind of makeup look. I am really wanting to try out some other colours from within the range. 

The Becca Compact Concealer in Parfait (not available online) has been a pleasant addition to my makeup collection this month, I bought it in a blog sale at the start of the month for just £5 and it has proven to a really great product. The consistency is similar to MAC concealer Studio Fix in terms of the thickness and it's consistency, I like that there is two different shades and they both match my skin really well. I use the lighter shade to highlight under my eyes and my cheekbones, and the darker shade to cover those pesky blemishes.  I do not own any other Becca products as they are usually really expensive and I don't know much about the brand, I will definitely be checking out the brand in more detail this upcoming month.

Last up is the Real Techniques Blush Brush, this is my go to brush for applying powder. The brush is technically made for applying blusher, but it is quite a big brush I find it functions perfectly at applying powder and bronzer. I got this in Sam's Picks last year which was an excellent value set, but this is able to buy individually for £9.99.
