Spring beauty favourites

I know I haven't written about beauty in quite some time. I do love beauty and make-up but lately I've kind of forgotten to feature it on my blog. So to make up (get it?) for it, I've collected a few of my most recent beauty additions and favourites to show you. 
Though I've spoken about it a lot already, I still wanted to feature my Nars sheer glow foundation because to my complete surprise I finally managed to find a pump to go with it (the foundation doesn't come with a pump). For months, I asked in every store if they had foundation pumps, but there seemed to be a nationwide shortage. But now I finally got it and my foundation is so much easier to use now!

A while back, there was a 20% discount offer at MAC so I couldn't resist and got the 217 brush which I always hear is one of the best eyeshadow brushes. I haven't used it very often yet but I can already tell it's the perfect blending brush. The Creme Cup lipstick was on my wishlist for a while and I'm so glad I got it. It's the perfect pink lipstick for blondes with fair skin like me. It's really similar to the Angel lipstick, to try out both if you like this colour. 

At the Regent Tweet event last Saturday, Kiko cosmetics kindly offered everyone goodie bags. My favourite product is this eyeshadow. I already have one of these Water Eyeshadows and it's amazing. You can use it both wet or dry. When I first opened Flamingo Pink I thought that's a colour I would never wear. But at second thought, I realised this could also make a gorgeous blush. It reminds me of my favourite blush Nars Orgasm so I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of this. 

In the sunlight.. seriously one of the most beautiful products I own, and you'd never think this is from a budget brand!

A product I've been loving lately is this creamy eyeshadow. It's the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on bronze. I had heard so many good things about it but never thought about trying it. Now I can only think "why didn't I get this sooner?" I apply it to my eyelids with my finger and just blend it. You can build up the colour and it's super blendable. I sometimes apply dry eyeshadow on top (so the Color Tattoo also acts as a base) but that's usually not even necessary. It's so quick, pretty and fool proof. Bronze also goes with everything; my new go-to eye look for an evening out. 

I've also told you about Albatross highlighter before, and I'm still loving this product. I saw some great tips in this video about how to make your nose look 'cuter' so check it out. I also like applying this to my cupid's bow. 

Some swatches: Maybelline Color Tattoo - Kiko Flamingo Pink - MAC Creme Cup - nars Albatross (which didn't really show up in the picture unfortunately!)

So these are some of the products I'm currently loving. If I've made your wishlist even longer and you want to check out the products, I've linked them all below. I'm making it dangerously easy for you to fill up that online shopping basket, aren't I? ;) Please let me know what your favourite product of this month has been!
