Oof, April. Where did you come from?! I felt a bit topsy turvy this past month as the weather has not been at all reflective of the season (think snow, ice and freezing temperatures) and I am so ready for some decent weather! Hopefully this month will prove to be a bit more spring-like and I think my wishlist for April just proves how much I need it to be spring and summer!
In terms of make-up, everything I am lusting after at the moment seems to be along the lines of fresh, light, bright and durable. I have been craving the By Terry Hyaluroinic Hydra-Powder since it has begun trickling into the beautysphere. Everyone raves about it and the matte, soft-focus, corrective finish of the powder seems perfect for prolonging make-up during the summer months.
Another base product I am looking to get is the Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream. Now, we were sent a press sample of this in the shade medium which, of course, is too dark for either of us. However, I was testing some false tans this past weekend and decided to give the darker shade a go and oh.my.god. it is the most beautiful product; sheer yet corrective, illuminating yet mattifying. So, once I come to the end of the Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturising Balm, I will definitely be picking this up in the lighter shade.
I have been having a total brow obsession ever since I taught myself how to thread my own eyebrows. I first heard about the Make Up For Ever Aqua Brow from our good pal Simone last year and filed it away in the Must Purchase area of my brain. I actually never got around to buying it and it was only when Dee told me how amazing it was last week that it shot right back to the top of my wishlist. Lipstick is my Achilles Heel and the new MAC Mineralize Rich Lipsticks look so bloody awesome that I want every single one of them. The mineralised formula and bright shade line-up seem perfect for summertime.
Only one fashion want this month and that is these gorgeous monochromatic flat sandals from the new Zara collection. I picked up a pair of simple silver sandals in the sale last summer and wore them to death, especially in New York and the Caribbean so, I would love a new pair to replace them and these seem perfect.
What are you after this month? Have you tried any of the products listed above?
