Well, another month has passed us by, so it's time for my April Favourites! These have been the standout products that I've been loving recently, plus a brand new watch fave too, so let's jump on in!
Joan Collins Divine Lips Lipstick in Marilyn* (£18, link)
Joan Collins' Timeless Beauty range has been one of my most surprising finds over the past year, and her makeup is definitely worth a try! I've been so impressed with the formula of these Divine Lips lipsticks in particular, which are beautifully pigmented, yet lovely and creamy in texture at the same time. They go on so smoothly, and I've been in love with this shade called Marilyn - a gorgeous and flattering, warm rosy pink that's perfect for Spring and Summer.
Green People Velvet Matte Lipstick in Damask Rose* (£15 - read my full review & see swatches here)
For an easy to wear nude matte lip, I've been obsessed with this new lippie from British organic brand, Green People. This velvet matte formula doesn't feel drying like other mattes, and the Damask Rose shade is simply stunning; I always get so many compliments about it!
Tropic Sculping Palette in Vintage Rose* (£24 - read my full review & see swatches here)
I'm a sucker for a good palette and this Sculpting one from Tropic has been my go-to for the past couple of weeks now. It has a bronzer, highlighter and blush, and all of them are so easy to use for every day without making you look OTT. They blend beautifully and this colour-way really suits my skin tone.
Bodhi & Birch Desert Rose Facial Oil* (£38, link)
Bodhi & Birch have recently relaunched one of their hero products, Desert Rose Facial Oil which is exciting news! With a shorter, snappier name and a new blend, this face oil is a powerhouse of organic oils and utilises the natural qualities of Argan, Rose, Prickly Pear and Starflower oils to deeply nourish and moisturise the skin, whilst also improving the skin's texture, boosting cellular regeneration and evening out the skin tone. I've reintroduced it into my nighttime routine (it's a little too heavy and rich for the daytime for me but works a charm at night), and I like to treat my skin to an at-home pampering facial with it once or twice a week. I find that this really helps to plump up my skin and give it a rejuvenating shot of hydration at the same time. Wonderful stuff!
KISS Lash Couture Faux Mink Lashes in Little Black Dress and Gala* (£7.99 per pair, link)
I was really excited to hear about these new faux-mink lashes from KISS and having tried these out for myself, I have to say that they're one of the best false lash new releases that I've seen in a long time! The lashes have been designed with a knot-free lash band to mimic the soft, layered, fluttery qualities of mink hair, but without the cruelty, as these are completely animal-free.
I've been trying out Little Black Dress; a lovely lightweight and fluttery pair that look like 'your lashes but better', and Gala; a much more dramatic and glamorous full-on set for parties and nights out with the girls. These are currently on a 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug at the moment and you can use a pair of these up to 10 times so if you're a fan of falsies, they work out very cost-effective.
Welly Merck Classic New York Rose Gold Mesh Watch* (£205, link)
I'm one of those people who always wears a watch, and I really enjoy collecting them. This beautiful watch from Welly Merck arrived on my doorstep last month and it was love at first sight, so it's no wonder that it became an instant new favourite. I was lucky enough to be able to choose the design that I wanted myself, and I opted for the Classic New York design which is in the brand's contemporary 'mesh' range, as it features a fully adjustable strap made from a fine chainmail/ metal mesh in a stunning Rose Gold colour.
It's also available in two colours for the face (silver or black) and naturally, I had to get it in the black as I have a serious obsession with black-faced watches - I just think they look so modern and chic, plus they seem to go with just about anything. The quality of this watch is superb; the glass face is made from Sapphire Crystal and the technology is Swiss Quartz Movement. I'm absolutely smitten with it, and if you fancy treating yourself to one, you can use my code BEAUTYWOLFGIRL20 to get 20% off any watch from WellyMerck.com - thanks WM!
