Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love a dark lip with a black/white outfit. I’m wearing the NYX soft matte lip cream in Transylvania, and I love the colour, but I needed to apply a couple of layers to build up the colour.

Here’s what I wore Friday April 8. I don’t think I’ve ever worn this much white in one outfit, but pretty much ever since I bought the Jurassic World top I’ve been wanting to pair it with these white jeans, and I love how the outfit turned out.

Yet another month has come to an end and we’re moving into the last official month of spring (I’m still waiting for the spring weather though). I want to enjoy May, because June will once again be all about exams. But let’s not talk about that right now. Instead, let’s talk about some things I’ve really enjoyed in the month of April.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Creamy Mattes gel-cream eyeshadow (shade: Crème De Rose 91): Back in November I compared this Color Tattoo to my beloved MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and found out that they were very similar, but I continued to use Painterly almost every day. This past month I would say I rediscovered this Color Tattoo and I’ve been really enjoying it. I still grab my Painterly Paint Pot more often, but I do really like this cheaper alternative.
Urban Decay Naked 2 eyeshadow palette: I’ve only been using this palette the second half of the month, but it has still been my favourite eye shadow palette this month. As I mentioned here I’d been craving this palette for years, and it really is an amazing product.
NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette: Another palette I’ve been loving all throughout the month is this highlight and contour palette. I’ve especially been using the four middle shades (Soft Light, Cream, Toffee and Sculpt) a ton.
Gosh Special Edition nail polish (shade: 003 Groovy Grey): As much as I love colour (in any aspect of my life) there’s something about neutral nail polishes that I can’t resist. This shade is a mix between a nude and a grey, and I love it. I love it so much that I wore it two weeks in a row in the beginning of April.
25 – Adele (album): I’ve always thought Adele was a great singer, but her music never really caught my attention. That’s until she released her 25 album. This album is full of beautiful songs, and if I had to choose a favourite, it would be All I Ask. So amazing!
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. It’s not that often that I wear a medium deep red lip, but I think this colour is really beautiful.

Lips: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide On lip pencil in 714 + Maybelline Colorsensational Matte lipstick in 970 Daring Ruby)
Here’s what I wore Thursday April 7. As you can see even though we’re in April it’s still sweater weather. I wish it would get a lot warmer very soon.

I finally purchased the Urban Decay Naked 2 eye shadow palette which I’d been craving for years. It’s my first Urban Decay palette, and I’m not disappointed. The quality is great and the colours are beautiful. If you’re not familiar with the Naked palettes the one just called Naked (the original one) has warm-toned neutrals, this one (Naked 2) has cool-toned neutrals, and Naked 3 has rosy neutrals. There is also a Naked Smoky palette which is full off darker, smoky shades. The only one of the palettes I’m not that keen on is the original Naked palette, but I would love to own the Naked 3 and Naked Smoky palettes.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing the NYX Liquid Suede lipstick in Stone Fox, and I love it. The first 30 min. or so I wore it I had to get used to the colour, but then I quickly started to love it. If you like unusual lip colours you should definitely try this one out.
