Monthly Beauty Favourites

It's been a long long while since I did my last monthly beauty favourites with you, but y'know summer is coming, or at least it feels like it. So this monthly beauty favourites is aimed at the rather snazzy spring / summer weather we're starting to enjoy.

Nanogen root boost hair thickening spray*: Full review in my previous post

Models own hyper gel polish in Lilac Sheen. A light girly lilac shade, perfect for spring. Quite a bold block colour finish with a glossy sheen. Despite owning many of the newer released Models Own polishes, the hyper gel range remains one of my favs, I'd also recommend the dark dusty blue shade cornflower gleem.  

Nouveau lashes and conditioning serum*. When the beer gardens call and mascara sweating of in the heat doesn't quite cut it for the perfect flutter, a set of falsies will. Since spring/ summer day time outings don't really call for a thick false lash look a natural pair is usually needed. The Nouveau lashes are ideal for more natural make up looks and the thin almost invisible lash strip makes them easy to apply and more comfortable to wear all day long.

The conditioning serum / primer is also something I've recently picked up. If your like me and have the bad habit of picking mascara from your eyes, which we all know will pull out lashes! Then a conditioning serum is my way of been nice to my lashes. Plus it also works as a mascara primer! Genius.

Bourjois rouge edition aqua laque, shades: 07 fushia perche, 04 viens si tu roses, 02 rosé on the rocks. Saving the best till last. When the rouge edition lip stains first launched last year the hype around them was immense. For good reason too. They literally didn't come of your lips. Ever. So when Aqua laque launched I was pretty keen to try a few out. Not that I had finally bough all the previous edition and it now felt like a collection..not at all *rolls eyes*. 

Where the previous rouge edition products are all matt finishes the aqua laque's are all bright, glossy and still very bold colours on the lips. Shade 07 is a bright pinky red which has a real classic Hollywood feel to it. shade 04 is a browner red shade but makes a perfect day time red lip. The 02 is a nude pinky shade which is one of my favourites for day times. 

The only downside is the lip products do bleed from the lip, despite promising not to, so I'd recommend a lip liner. 

Despite not lasting as long as the  rouge edition once the glossy effect wears off the lips still stain with a subtle pop of colour.
