April Favourites


Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Slogan Edition

First up is the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Slogan Edition I was kindly sent this and fell in love with it immediately. When I first saw the packaging I knew it was going to be amazing because it had the words “I am not a morning person” written on the side which could not be more true when you are trying to apply make up at 5am every morning. I apply this over my foundation under my eyes and between my eyebrows and up a little to my forehead and instantly I notice the difference. This is actually my first YSL product and I’m super impressed will definitely be trying out more products soon. You can purchase this exclusively from Brown Thomas online and in store for €35 check it out here


That’s it Alfaparf Shampoo and Mask

That’s it Blonde Ambition Shampoo and Blonde Parade Mask from Alfaparf Milano is another one of my April favourites it is amazing, I started using this a few months ago and use it 1-2 times a week. This is a pigmented shampoo that is used to help neutralize unwanted reflections and to enhance natural and coloured hair. Even though it is called blonde ambition this shampoo and mask can be used on any hair colour. This shampoo is sulfate-free and paraben-free. Since I started using this my hair has become so shiny and I definitely notice the blonde is so much nicer after washing my hair with this shampoo and mask, as I only use it once or twice a week so it is more noticeable when I do use it.  This is available in salons only around the country. The Blonde Ambition Shampoo is €12.95 and the Blonde Parade Mask is €14.95 amazing prices for such great products.


NYX make up

Next up is the NYX stay matte but not flat liquid foundation. I had noticed lately that my skin was a bit oily and because I was applying my make up so early in the morning for work it was not lasting as well as it used to. I was looking for a matte foundation which would be suitable and was going to purchase the Inglot HD foundation when my Mam told me she uses this NYX foundation and loved it. I decided to try this out because at €8.50 it definitely is a bargain. I did get a shade too light for me but I mixed a bit with another foundation and its perfect I love the matte finish and it really does last all day in work. Lots of people have admired the foundation and it will be a permanent product in my make up bag from now on. You can get this in Boots here


Purcell & Woodcock

This favourite is not a beauty product but I had to share it with you. When I was at the Elite Munster Blogger Network in Limerick a few weeks back the lovely Gillian from Meaghers pharmacy gifted us bloggers with some goodies from Meaghers pharmacy and included in mine was this fab Purcell & Woodcock Bamboo Green Tea candle. I am a big fan of scented candles and this one did not disappoint it smells amazing leaving a refreshing scent in my room. You can purchase this tin candle for €7 on the Purcell & Woodcock website or get the bigger candle in a glass for €14 on the Meaghers Pahramcy website here


Bellamianta Self Tanning Tinted Lotion

Last but not least is the Bellamianta tan I recenlty did a full review on this which you can read here but I could not do a monthly favourites post and not include this amazing tan. I will be bringing this with me to Thailand in a few weeks as it just gives the most amazing colour and is so easy to apply. You can purchase this online on the Bellamianta website or on the Inish Pharmacy website for €19.95 here
