Monthly Favourites – April | EmmyWritesAbout

Quarter of the way through the year… say what?! The year is going quick as always but April was a fun month for me and we have lots planned for the upcoming months. During April I got quite a few new products but I have only been using some of them a week or two and when it comes to my favourites I want to have been using them all month or for months. This months favourites include beauty and lifestyle including some cute bedding!

NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray | £7.00 | Link

I started using this the end of March and fast fell in love. I have already finished one and already re purchased. The nozzle/spray creates a lightweight mist that dries down quickly. I definitely find when using this spray it makes my makeup last that little bit longer. I find alot of setting sprays can spray out quite heavy and go a bit too wet but this one is perfect. The only thing I wish was that the bottle was bigger. 

Ciate Glow To Illuminating Blush “Summer Love” | £22.00 | Link

I purchased this when they were on offer for £15.00 and I am so glad I did! I never spend a fortune on blush as I think there are amazing drugstore ones out there but this one is worth £22! The finish it gives is beautiful, it has a satin finish with no shimmer and gives a gorgeous glow. This shade is a very pale peachy pink. I am going to be ordering more shades! The blush has mini stars imprinted into it, most have disappeared on mine I have used it that much. 

Minnie Mouse Purse | £4.00 | Link

How cute is this purse?! I saw it in Primark in Liverpool the end of March and had to have it. It is adorable. It comes with a zip pocket then card spaces either side. The bow stuck on the front is covered in red glitter and then on the zip is a pair of minnie mouse shoes. 

MAC Lipsticks | £17.00 | Link

Honeylove is a shade I have owned for a while and has always been one of my favourites but earlier in the year I picked up Peachstock. I love both of them on their own but when you pair them together they create a beautiful shade and finish. Honeylove is matte and peachstock is satin. I sometimes apply peachstock just in the center of honeylove or all over. 

Flamingo Bedding | £14.00 (for a double) | Link

How amazing is this bedding!! As you can tell I love flamingos and have cushions to match. I saw this bedding set in Asda around 4 weeks ago. It comes in a single, double or king size. It is reversable and has a plain white cover with pink flamingos on the other side. Asda always do the cutest bedsets and they are affordable.

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara | £6.50 | Link

I have tried so many brow mascaras and never really liked any of them. I have recently fallen in love with this NYX one. The wand on it is the perfect size, it dispenses the right amount of product and makes my brows look so much better. 

Colab Dry Shampoo Unicorn Fragrance | £3.49 | Link

I usually always use Batiste Dry Shampoo, I have tried a Colab one in the past and really not liked it. Of course this one first stood out to me for the packaging but when I read it, it says it has a clear colour and will work on any colour hair. I have seen this before and they always turn out white BUT this one doesn’t! My hair is dark brown almost black and this sprays completely clear! It instantly makes my hair looks healthy and not greasy. It doesn’t leave any residue and it smells good. I have already re purchased it. I actually prefer it over my usual dark brown Batiste one.


MAC Honeylove – MAC Peachstock – Paired Together – Ciate Summer Love Blush

Kaspas Desserts was another favourite of mine during April. Just look how yummy it is!! I need to go again ASAP! Read all about it and what they do over in my What Happened In April Post.
