|FROM BOTTOM L CLOCKWISE: KISSTICK IN CARESSING RED, I LOVE COSMETICS HAND CREAM IN STRAWBERRIES & CREAM, PAPIER POUDRE BLOTTING PAPERS & CHINESE COCONUT CANDY.|
First up, Hand cream! The Strawberries & cream scent by I Love Cosmetics is a real winner, This instantly hydrates and soothes my hands and coupled with an amazing texture is the scrummy scent, it seriously smells like strawberry milkshakes from McDonalds! This also lifts my mood and makes me think of hot summer days. You will always find this in my handbag because I never leave the house without it.
Next is a brand new lipstick (KISStick) from a newly released brand called Kiss Cosmetics, I was sent this shade to try out and I have been lovin' it ever since, The pigmentation and staying power is really commendable, the texture is buttery soft and for the price, it's an absolute bargain. I honestly think this lipstick has similar qualities to higher branded ones but without the hefty price tag.
Whilst rummaging through my stash, I rediscovered these vintage blotting papers which are a travel essential, You basically rip a sheet from the book and blot it on your face, the sheets are coated with face powder and when you look back at the paper, you'll see that it has picked up any oil/dirt and it will leave your face looking matte again, I think this will be a firm summer staple for me! What I love about this is that it's quick, easy and disposable!
Lastly, since a recent trip to China Town, I have been munching on all sorts of chinese/korean candies/biscuits/snacks, these coconut candies are to die for! They're so creamy and moreish, you'll want more than one! I know I'll be repurchasing these again soon and I do keep a few near me whilst I'm blogging away.
What have you been loving in the month of April?
