April Favourites 2014

April Beauty Favourites 2014
Another month has passed and it's time to share my monthly favourites with you! April was quite the month for me. I finished my internship and college this month, then I went through an awful week with an ear infection, and now the month is already over! I did get quite a few beauty products this month which I have absolutely fallen in love with though!

OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana / This polish was released with OPI's Brazil collection for Spring 2014. It's the perfect yellow nail polish. I don't know what else to say about it! The formula is fantastic, being very creamy and opaque and the colour is just bright enough. (Swatch)

Urban Decay Naked Basics / I bought this palette during the Sephora 15% off sale and I am so, so glad I did. I've had my eye on this palette since it was first released but put off buying it for some reason. Since I've bought it though, I've used just this palette to do my eyeshadow nearly every single day. It's very quickly become a staple for me! (Review)

H&M Lip Tint in Hot Pink / I picked this up on a whim this month and it really, really surprised me. This product is similar to an OCC Lip Tar in that you only need a little bit of product to get a bright, opaque lip colour. It was also very long wearing! I'll be posting a review on this soon and I hope to buy more of these too! 

C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve / I bought this at Bath and Body Works as part of a 3 for 10 deal just because I needed a third thing, and I ended up loving it. It's a balm that can be used on the lips, but can also be used on dry skin or cuticles. I've mostly used it as a lip balm so far, but it is very hydrating and feels fantastic on the lips!

MAC x Proenza Schouler Blush Ombre in Ocean City / I know, I know. I've had this blush for all of what? Three days? But I am already so in love with this blush, I couldn't not include it. Since the promo images for this collection were released I've been dreaming of this blush and I'm so thrilled with it. (Review)

MAC Lipstick in Toying Around / This lipstick is part of the Playland collection MAC recently released and it's my perfect summer shade. I've worn it a few times already and it's the most gorgeous bright coral lipstick. I'll be wearing it all spring and summer long! (Review)

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Streak / This is the other product I bought from Sephora during their 15% off sale. I still haven't posted my review of it yet but this has very quickly become my go-to everyday lipstick. It's a bright enough shade that it's not boring or too neutral on the lips, but it's a very easy shade to wear and looks good with any look. And I love the formula and packaging of it too!

Julep Nail Polish in Monaco / I got this nail polish in my March Julep Maven box and it's a gorgeous bright blue creme. I've worn it in two manicures in the past month or so which you can see here and here! I love the formula of Julep polishes too. They apply smoothly and opaque, and last a long time without chipping!

Bath & Body Works Candles in Coconut Leaves and Tiki Beach / I bought these candles when Bath & Body Works was doing a buy 1 get 1 free candle sale one day. These candles are both so tropical smelling and I love burning them at the same time! Coconut Leaves is described as "a tropical fusion of juicy tangerine and papaya that gives way to soothing coconut and vanilla notes". Tiki Beach is described as "a luxurious blend of toasted coconut, vanilla musk, and orchids".


  1. Wonderful April favorites :D I love how the Naked Basics is such a great everyday palette. Ah you're tempting me with I Just Can't Cope-acabana! lol

    1. If you don't already have a good yellow polish you have to get I Just Can't Cope-acabana! It's everything I've ever wanted for a yellow nail polish!
