Spring Favourites

Ahoy my lovely readers,

I have a new post today featuring my Spring favourites. I have sort of given up on doing monthly favourites, at least for the time being. So, instead, I have been doing seasonal favourites.
Let's get right into it then....

                                                                      Make-Up

Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in "Exposed"
A cult favourite. I was a bit hesitant to splurge on this but it is worth every penny.
Kiehl's BB Cream
I posted a review of this beloved product which you can check out here.
Wet n Wild eyeshadow palette in "Comfort Zone" 
I have been loving this for one of my favourite eye looks which is a subtle smoky brown.
Benefit "Watt's Up" Highlighter
I fell in love with this once again.
Sephora "44" Brush
A nice finishing/powder brush albeit a bit scratchy.
Maybelline Great Lash in Clear
Affordable, easy to use, perfect for brows.
Bobbi Brown EYES, travel exclusive, set (Black Ink & Sepia Ink).
I bought this on board one of my flights and I have been using it every day since. Black Ink is an all-time favourite of mine and Sepia Ink is quickly becoming one as well.
MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in "Relentlessly Red"
No matter how many lipsticks you have, you need this one...!! 
Revlon lip butter in "Juicy Papaya"
A lovely peach that has been my go to got a very long time.
SWATCHES


                                                         Skincare and Haircare 
Garnier Fructis "Shake it"
I am not one to use lots of products on my hair because of how fine it is.But this is incredibly lightweight and smells delicious. 
The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter
I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and I can safely say it is quickly becoming part of my everyday skincare routine. 
Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil
This mini version of one of the most talked about face oil, has been the saviour of my dry patches. I also use it whenever I want to do a face massage.
Lanolin-Agg-Tval Eggwhite Facial Care soap.
I was introduced to this by a friend of mine and fellow blogger Evi from Lipstick Wardrobe. She recommended this to me during a shopping spree of ours and I have been loving it since. It is very inexpensive and a great soap to use before applying make-up. 
Le Petit Marseillais Hand Cream
Lovely hand cream for someone who needs a product that will moisturise the hell out of their hands and won't break the bank.
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micellaire Solution
Another cult favourite. I had to re-purchase this because I cannot be without it. 

 Nails

I only have one nail favourite to share and that is my attempt to create watercolour nails. I think that this design is fun and very creative and I am looking forward to playing around with this again.

I really hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know what your Spring favourites are in the comments below.
                                                                         xoxo

    1. Thanks Lisa. I am glad you liked the nails. I was just experimenting and I think they turned out quite decent. I would recommend this particular Bioderma product and also the facial sunscreen in its fluid version. I use SPF 50 and I find most of the ones on the market are just way too greasy to wear under make-up. However the Bioderma one is phenomenal. I think their products are really worth a try. :)
