April favourites in 2021. Includes a silicone scalp massager, nail polishes and iridescent blushers.

In April my favourite thing was the weather :)  the end. Jokes aside, I must say that Spring is in full bloom this year and I cannot wait for hotter days to come our way soon! After last year's first lockdown it will be very difficult to beat the weather but please let the sunshine continue throughout the rest of SS21!! 

April 2021 has been a month of trying out lots of new products - some I've loved and others maybe not so much. Either way, I will be focusing on the items that I really enjoyed using throughout the month. Let's get into it!

March was a bit different for me than the past few months as the weather began to change into warmer days meaning that I've been going on more walks and trying to keep myself busy. Whereas the past few months seemed so dreary and not very enjoyable due to the cold!  

In all honesty, I have been using the same products that I usually do in my skincare and makeup routine as I'm not in a position where I can spend a lot of money to try new things. However, I will try and change it up a little bit each month so I have something new to talk about! I do have a massive collection of beauty items that I have never opened so this might actually be a good excuse to start opening up some bottles!

Review || Nars Illuminator in Orgasm

Good Morning Everyone!

I've been wanting to try Nars cosmetics for a while now and I finally plucked up the courage to go and buy some! My initial thought was "wow there are so many things to choose from, and I want all of them!" But I calmed myself down and decided to buy one thing that day and went for their illuminator in the shade Orgasm. 

As you can see, the tube is quite big meaning you get a lot of product for your money. I have been obsessing over highlighters for quite some time now and have recently purchased two highlighting 
palettes from Sleek - you can read my review here.

You get 30ml for £23 which should last for a long time, depending on how much product you use and how often you reach for it. For example, I mix a bit of it with my foundation for a natural glow and also dab it onto my skin as a blusher and highlight in one due to the pinkish colour.

It is very hand and easy to use. All you need to use is your finger! It is very blendable and gives a lovely natural shimmery glow to any complexion. I would highly recommend to mix it with a mattifying foundation as not only do you get a great matte finish and full coverage but also a natural glow - seems like a dream!

I have squeezed out a generous amount of the product to show you the colour of it - it's very orangey-pink with shimmer, just like Nars' blush in the same shade. I would say that this is the amount that I would use to mix with my foundation and use the left over to put over my cheek bones. So like I've said, you get a lot of product for the price and it'll last for a while.

The texture is very smooth yet watery. It almost feels like unset jelly, which makes it easy to apply and blend.

This is how the product looks like applied on the skin - it  pigmented as I had used a bit too much product and it was very hard to try and rub it into my skin! But as you can see, it gives a beautiful glow with lots of shimmer.

Do you own any Nars products? Have you tried their illuminators?

Lots of love,
