I can't believe another month has gone and I'm sat here with a hot chocolate typing up another monthly favourites post for you all. I know I say this all the time, but I can't quite believe how quickly the months as passing by, it's crazy. I have to admit I'm pretty much love the fact that we are now in spring, talk about good vibes. Theres been a lot of spring related post go up on my blog over the last month, and if you've seen them you'll know that I've been swapping things around in my makeup bag and beauty regime, which can only mean lots of new favourites. So if you want to see what I've been loving over the last month be sure to get comfy and keep on reading.
Makeup Revolution I Heart Obsession Palette - Pure Cult
My first favourite of the month has to go to the new Makeup Revolution I heart Obsession Palette in Pure Cult, I've been reaching for it everyday as it has those perfect spring shades. Pure Cult has a great mixture of shimmer and matte eyeshadows with a great colour range that works perfectly for everyday wear. I am loving the pink toned shades in this palette as I think they create a really soft girly look and for me spring is all about fresh minimal makeup, so this palette really is perfect. The quality of these shadows are great as they're highly pigmented and blend beautifully, at only £3.99 it's amazing value for money and worth picking up.
Clinique Facial Soap
The last month I went a bit mad on skincare, I had a lot of new products to try out but one that really stood out above the rest was the Clinique Facial Soap. I picked this up towards the end of February mainly because I was feeling a bit fed up with my skin and was wanting to try something new. Clinique has always been a strong contender in the beauty world, especially for skin care and their award winning three step system. I remember when I was growing up my mum would use the facial soap bar and to this day still uses it - I'd just like to point out right now my mums skin is amazing. I don't think I've ever used a bar of soap to cleanse my face and remove my makeup before, but I have been converted. This soap really is amazing, it's gentle on my skin, removes all traces of my makeup and I've not had a bad skin day since using it, which is some statement to make. I won't go into too much detail as to my I love this cleanser so much as I have a full review of it coming up very soon, but it's a winner I promise.
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara
Out of all the beauty products available to us I think mascara is the one beauty product that can be difficult to get right. I don't know about anyone else but I feel that I'm always falling in and out of love with different mascaras. One mascara that has been a huge hit with me is the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara. First of all the brush is not a plastic, it's a full thick bristle brush which are always my favourite as I find they coat my lashes with a lot more precision. Secondly the Full Exposure Mascara gives my lashes plenty of volume and lengthens them dramatically - You really can achieve that false lash effect with this mascara. I also really love the formula with this mascara, it feels very thick and heavy but it doesn't make your lashes clump, even as it the product begins to dry out. I'm almost finished with this tube, but it will definitely be a repurchase for me.
Let me introduce you to Honeylove, the latest edition to my Mac Lipstick collection. As you can probably tell from all my lipstick posts this year, I am a woman completely obsessed when it comes to nude lipsticks. I had been eying up Mac Honeylove for sometime, picked it up at the beginning of the month it's quickly become a new favourite of mine. This nude lipstick really gives that 'your lips but better' look which I'm loving right now. Again I find this shade works perfectly for spring, its neutral and works well with my everyday makeup. I'm love paring this lipstick with a slightly darker lip liner just to create a fuller pout.
My last favourite is not a beauty favourite, but one that I am so obsessed with right now. Of course I'm talking about the most popular app ever ... Instagram. I've been using Instagram since the early days, before hashtags where even used on there - Remember that? Over the years I've always posted pictures that I like at the time, but over the last month I've decided that it was time I upped my Instagram game. I really want it to be a reflection of me and extension of my blog, so I'm trying to stick with a theme and keep continuity throughout my pictures (it really isn't as easy as it looks). Stepping up my Instagram game means that my obsession for the app has reached a new level and I'm loving it. I'm looking to follow more beauty accounts, so if I'm not following you be sure to leave your Instagram link below and I'll take a look. You can find me at @sunshinesprkle I would love it if you could follow.
So that's all my favourites this month wrapped up. I would love to know what you've been loving and if any of my favourites match yours let me know.
Lots of Love
