April...is over? I literally can't believe it, like, I know practically every 'favourites' posts starts with some kind of dismay over the month ending...but like I said. I literally can't believe it. Or maybe it's a case of not wanting to believe it - May is a baaaaad month for those still in education. I dread this time next month when I'll be writing my May Favourites as exams will be in full swing!!
Anyway, let's get on to what I've been loving this week...

First is a Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice which I hauled here

I use the top two right shades as a blush and highlight on a daily basis now - they're perfect for spring! I tried to swatch them but they didn't show on camera - they just give a light touch of colour to your face which looks incredibly natural.

In the same haul, I picked up this L'oreal Paris Infallible Matte Primer, and it's really nice on the skin, without feeling like a thick layer of silicone. It also helps my foundation stay in place for longer. It's not the most amazing primer ever, but it really does the job for the price (£7.99) and as I've been loving using it, it had to be a favourite!

This Bondi Sands fake tan is amazing. I talked about it in detail here, but please. It's just amazing.

I also hauled this eyeliner earlier this month, and it's become a spring/summer staple. I love using it on my waterline and inner corners to subtly make my eyes appear bigger and brighten up any eyeshadow look. It's really good value as well! You definitely need one in your collection.

Moving away from makeup, I finished this book very early on in April, I think. My friend bought it for me as she picked it up when we were together and loved it, so ordered me a copy. Surprise surprise, I loved it too. It's a YA fantasy, but it's not...wishy-washy? I don't know. It's got really dark themes (such as trading of teeth!!) and is about humans and chimeras and just...awesome stuff. It's set in Prague, and we loved it so much we're hoping to go this July! The main character is also a really great girl who's unlike your average female protagonist, so it's nice to have a bit of variety.

This necklace is from Primark and I've been loving it. It's a really simple yet effective design and I wear it with basically everything. The only downside is it's obviously not going to last forever as it was so cheap - but Primark have some great jewellery at the moment so I doubt it'll be hard to find a replacement!

Finally...these shoes. These shoes are my life. I love them so much. I bought them a few months ago from New Look in the sale for £7 which is an amazing bargain. They're a really versatile piece. I won't lie, they're not overly comfortable, but I do love wearing them, and they're quite easy to walk in. I love ankle boots at the moment, and these cutouts give them a more open and spring/summer appropriate look!

Do we have any favourites in common this month?
