April Beauty Favourites

Welcome to a new and improved Coco Avant Sarah and this time it's back for good. A new series that I'm going to introduce is monthly favourites that I'm going to categorise into beauty and random and fashion. 

Let's get into my first ever monthly favourites!

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush body buttercream
I have used the body wash version of this for the past year and the scent is simply amazing. It reminds me of a lemon cheesecake that Ant and I had in Central Perk last summer and I'm surprised that I haven't tried to eat it. Whilst in Boots I thought that I would give the buttercream a try having found that Soap & Glory body creams are perfect for my skin. It was love at first try, and I have used it every day. I'm normally too lazy after a shower to bother moisturising but this is worth the extra effort.

Sleek blush in Rose Gold
This is a beautiful blush that adds a gorgeous peach glow to the cheeks and I wear on the days when my skin needs a little pick me up. For under £5, the formulation is beautiful and extremely pigmented.

Topshop cream blush in Head Over Heels
 I wear this pretty much every day. It makes my skin look healthy and when paired with bronzed it adds a beautiful sunkissed glow. These dry to a powder finish once applied and blended onto the skin. For my basic everyday make up routine, this product is key.

L'oreal Colour Platinum Appeal eyeshadow in Metal Plum
I've had this eyeshadow for years and I used to use it constantly. Of course this was back when I was 18 and I didn't have a clue how to apply make up. I rediscovered this after watching a Tanya Burr vlog and she was wearing the By Terry ombre black star in Misty Rock. I realised that I had something extremely similar in my collection and I have been reaching for it ever since. It's not quite as pretty as Misty Rock but it will suffice until I get my hands on the real thing.

L'oreal Colour Riche L'extraordinaire in 600 Nude Vibrato
This is another product that I have been reaching for daily as part of my everyday make up routine. It's the perfect nude gloss for my skin tone and the formula nothing I have ever seen before. It feels like a balm on the lips yet has the pigmentation of a lipstick. I'm the type of person who constantly has dry lips so this formulation is perfect for me.

L'oreal True Match foundation in N1 Ivory
Being so fair, I have a hard time finding drugstore foundations that match. I always end up with a funky orange line or just looking like an oomph loompa. This is a perfect colour for, it has great coverage with a slight glowy finish. My only problem with this is that it can cling to the dry patches around my nose but I have a hard time finding a foundation that doesn't. 

I hope you enjoyed my first favourites post!
