April Favourites 2017

Hello! It's been a while since I attempted a favourites post, but I have a few things this month that I really want to talk about and share with you, so I thought I'd give it another try. It's a bit of a long one towards the end, but I hope you can stay 'til the end! If you've loved (or hated) any of the things I'm featuring feel free to let me know in the comments.

The first thing I've been loving this month is my Anastasia Beverly Hills x Nicole Guerriero Glow Kit. I got this for my 20th birthday in March, and I've been absolutely obsessed with it from the minute I opened it. Although I love all the shades in this palette, "Forever Lit" and "Kitty Kat" are my favourites. Forever Lit is a beautiful white highlight with a purple-y reflect and Kitty Kat is a really pretty pink colour. This is the first Glow Kit I've ever had and I definitely want to purchase more now. The powders are so so pigmented and they create the most beautiful glow which had me a little concerned at first, being so pale I didn't know if they'd suit me, but they blend out really well too. I'd definitely recommend buying this if you can find one, but as far as I'm aware it's out of stock in most places!

Next up are two more make up items that I've been using loads lately, L'Oreal's Infallible 24 Hour Stay Fresh Foundation and Barry M's Glitter Rush Body Glitter in Snow Globe. I've been on the hunt for a new foundation lately as my last one wasn't a very good colour match, even in the palest shade. After trying a few different ones over the past couple of months I've finally settled on this one from L'Oreal that I absolutely love. The most important thing for me is the colour match, but it's also really long lasting and I'm finding that I don't need to use as much product as I did with my old one. If you're looking for a new foundation give this a go!

Now for the Glitter Rush. I'm absolutely obsessed with glitter at the moment. Whether it's using it on my eyelids, in my inner corner, or even as a highlighter, I'm completely in love with a bit of sparkle. This one from Barry M is a really pretty iridescent colour so it can be used as a subtle bit of glitter, or it can be built up to really add impact to a make up look. I've also found that it stays on quite well even without a glitter primer, but I'm not sure if that's down to the product itself or just how many primers I personally use when I do my make up for a night out. Is anyone else as in love with glitter looks as me? Please let me know, I need someone to bond with!

My last favourite of this month is slightly controversial, even in my own head, and it's Netflix's new series 13 Reasons Why. First things first, this show is not perfect. I know it has problems, I know the creators could and probably should have done things differently, and I know it's not been everyone's cup of tea. I personally was absolutely hooked. I have so many thoughts and feelings on the show (and the book) to express, so I wrote a whole post about it, which you can find here in case you haven't already read it.

There we go! I hope you enjoyed my first favourites post of 2017, hopefully I can keep it up this time. What have you been loving this month?
