How important it is for you to look out for more natural products? I am a supporter of sustainability and its positive impacts, therefore I’m always on the look for natural products and sometimes invest a bit more in sustainable ones for my own health, but also for the Planet’s landfill. Sometimes, huge brands launch products that are indeed more natural, but they claim to be bio or sustainable l with no certification on the packaging. I had my eye on the newly launched Garnier BIO range as it’s Cosmos certified, but is it really natural? Let’s find out together!
Spring is here, I’ve just moved houses and between packing and checking my emails, I could only use the essentials and soon I realised I don’t really need all the products or apps that I have in my phone. Curious to have a little nosey in my current monthly favourites? Let’s discover my ‘swear by’ products this month.
Chanel Les Beiges Bronzing Blush
There’s nothing more flattering than a glowing but subtle contour – this beautiful bronzer is my go to now. It looks so expensive on; it’s one of the ‘what are you wearing on your cheeks?’ kind of vibe and I’m hooked! The bristle is so soft, it feels like a gentle stroke. Expect lots of selfies of me wearing it (not guilty) this Spring. And ah, I almost forgot about its amazing smell! Try the Chanel Les Beiges Bronzing Blush yourself and tag me on Instagram @notagirlygal. I love your updates!
The newest stylish app that Instagram bloggers are going mad for. Having stylists to comment on your outfit on the-go (Hello! How cool is that?), the app it’s basically a troll free community where everyone can post pictures to receive constructive advice. I find this idea amazing, because the internet nowadays is really spammy. Imaging a dreamy community of happy friends who are there to guide your fashion choices or help out with shopping. I’ve been using the app throughout April at random times of the day, and by that I mean checking it constantly for updates (guilty!) – I love seeing real outfits and the real photos of women who are happy to be guided and interact with one another. As I support women empowerment and stand for women feeling confident with their own style, I have became a brand ambassador for Enty and I’m now a stylist on the app.
Get the Enty App now because you could get my opinion on outfits, styles, fashion trends and everything in between directly from me, but also meet a super friendly community.
Lancôme x Proenza Schouler
Just add colour! This palette is absolutely stunning – a combination between orange / red and blue shades coming in different textures from creamy to extra matt. I’ve been loving the Lancôme x Proenza Schouler Chroma palette since March and been wearing it almost every day. I added a make-up base on my lids (breaking the rules here) every time and the colour lasted all day – and how often does that happen? I have combination to oily skin, so for me, finding a great make-up palette is not such an easy job. Imagine all the Springy looks you can create with one single palette and having it last all day – It’s definitely a winner for me. I’m surprised not so many people know about it and it’s not available everywhere online, but you can find it on Notino.
Estée Lauder Double Wear
The foundation of foundations. If you heard magic stories about this foundation and its coverage, I can tell you, they are true. Not only does it cover all spots & blemishes, but it also lasts all day long. I initially thought that a foundation with such high coverage must be cakey, right? No way! I might have a a bit of glow around my nose after a full day, but it’s normal for oily skin. I’ve been wearing it since November I think and realised I can’t wear something else now. It might be on the pricy side, but it’s worth it, it’s your face & your health! If you haven’t already, order your Estée Lauder Double Wear now & get ready to meet professional make-up at home 🙂
Dolce &Gabbana The One
Hands down, the perfume of the month! Image a seductive scent of lily, jasmine, roses, amber & musk that will accompany you through out the day and night. It’s perfect for Spring & Summer because it gives me more positive energy. My can do attitude? Definitely inspired by the uplifting D&G The One (it’s 40% off on Notino now).
There we go my lovelies, these are my April 2019 favourites! Have a happy Easter Weekend and hope you’ll treat yourself or your loved ones to some of the goodies I love at the moment, this Easter. Now, I’m curious – what’s one beauty product & app you can’t live without? Let me know in the comment section below! 🙂
Lots of love,
