My April Beauty Faves (so far)!



Hi guys!

So sitting here tonight (Sunday evening), it occurred to me that I havent blogged about my current beauty faves in awhile and so I thought I would put a post together for tomorrow  – Monday!

Being a beauty blogger and getting sent quite a few products for review, I always love to share my new beauty faves. When I opened my makeup bag to pull out some of my faves that I have been using a lot, these x5 made the cut!



1. Seventeen Brow Kit


  • Price: €7.59
  • Buy here

SEVENTEEN Brows That is a great little Brow Kit that I just started using over weekend and I have to say for just €8 – its BRILLIANT! It contains a wax, powder, highlighter, mini pencil and mini brush plus a handy hints and tips card to help perfect your brows. I havent used the wax part just yet – but the shadow pay off itself is really good and the highlighter is brilliant. I think the highlighter has to be my fav thing about this little palette –  its sooo good! But overall for €8 – you can’t go wrong, perfect for the handbag 🙂

2. MAC Strobe Cream


  • Price: €33.50
  • Buy here

Srobe cream is the ultimate quick fix for glowing skin. When I was in MAC recently buying the Soft & Gentle highlighter, these mini travel strobe creams were at the till and so I picked it up, hello impulse buying. I havent used strobe cream in YEARS and I forgot how good it is! Strobe Cream helps freshen up your look and is the perfect cream highlighter for under your foundation, that offers that dewy finish. When I posted a picture of this over the weekend, some of you requested a dupe and so here you are. Read this review here- it’s the perfect dupe for a cheaper price.

3. Loreal Super Liner (brown)

  • Price: €14.90

If anyone struggles with mastering the smoky eye  – let me tell you how to get it with just one product. If you dont know already – the key to a perfect smoky eye is about the ideal pairing of eyeliner and shadow together. This new L’Oréal smoky eye powder liner is a blend of  eyeliner and shadow in one product, making it super easy for you to get that metallicy/matte smokey eye look in seconds. My favourite thing about this product is the soft applicator making it perfect for applying the product to the eye.

TIP: I always take my eyeshadow blender brush after I have applied the product and blend it out even more, so there are no harsh lines.

4. No7 Instance Radiance Concealer


  • Price €17.50
  • Buy here

The No7 Instant Radiance Concealer is a light reflecting concealer that will help disguise dark circles. Working late nights recently has really taken its toll on my undereye area and so to help diminish the dark circles, I have ben using this and I am super impressed! Not only does it help with discolouration, it also helps to reduce puffy eyes! The light reflecting particles brighten your skin leaving it looking healthy and refreshed, so that you look like you’ve had a great nights sleep, even if you haven’t.

5. Crown Ultra Skinny Eye Marker

  • Price: €10

This little eyeliner pen is so good, I had to write about it in my April faves. Not only is the colour pay off excellent – the longevity is A1. I always found it quite hard to use liner pens because I always felt it dragged my eye, but not this little beauty. The product is so generous, it glides along the eye giving you a thin, even black line! It is also perfect for creating that inner V liner look due to the thin tip. For €10 – I would be recommending everyone to try this out, especially if you are a liner lover like myself 🙂

And there you have it – some April beauty FAVES! What are yours?

Also did you purchase my SoSueMe Brushes yet, let me know what you think?
