April Beauty Empties

April Beauty Empties

It’s been a while since I last blogged about my beauty empties so I thought I’d show you some of the beauty products that I managed to use up last month – which means more space for new things woo! 

Nars Creamy Concealer
Despite changing to the Bare Minerals serum concealer when I ran out of the Nars Creamy Concealer, I think Nars will always be my ultimate favourite. It brightens dark circles under your eyes straight away and creases never make an appearance throughout the day. I will most definitely be buying another tube soon!
J’ADORE is one of my favourite everyday perfumes. It has a fresh floral scent that isn’t too overpowering so I’ve been wearing this whether I’m at work or going out for the evening. It has notes of jasmine, orchid, mandarin and rose, and although I normally don’t like rose scented perfumes or lotions (although I love fresh roses!), they work really well together and leave you smelling ohhhh so gorgeous.
I’d read so many good reviews about the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation I really wanted to give it a try. I was colour matched at an Estée Lauder counter and bought the Desert Beige shade. It’s oil free so it’s perfect for my skin type however I did find that it gave a subtle shimmery/glittery effect which I don’t really like for my foundation. I prefer more matte finishes for every day wear. It is lighter in consistency though than the Make Up Forever Mat Velvet foundation that I’ve also been using but it doesn’t provide as much coverage. 
It didn’t take long for me to use up the bareMinerals Bronzer. I bought this in the shade The Skinny Dip and I found it perfect for contouring and providing a nice bronzed glow to the rest of my face. This is another product that I keep going back to but I’m thinking it’s time to try out some new bronzers – if you can recommend any please let me know! 

James Read Clear Bronzing Mist
Ever since I came across this in TK Max I’ve been loving it, I spray it on my face and neck in the evening about 2/3 times a week. It dries so quickly so if you want to add another layer after your first application you get an even deeper looking tan by the morning. I also love how I am never left with any streaks whatsoever! I’m now on the second bottle and would definitely recommend this if you haven’t tried it yet. 
Soft and Gentle Deodorant
This might be an odd one to include but I thought I’d mention it anyway as it has been my go-to deodorant for years and I’ve only recently just decided to switch to something different. The wild rose and vanilla scent smells gorgeous and keeps you in check all day. The only reason I decided to recently switch is because I started to notice white marks on dark clothes…
Dr Ceuticals Super Repair Hand Cream
I’ve been experimenting with different hand creams as in the colder months I really suffer with dry hands. This worked brilliantly to help moisturise my skin, I noticed such a good difference whenever I used it. I’m now onto trying new hand creams but I’m not as impressed with the results.
