April Favourites!

Genuinely feel like sometimes I write a favourites at least once a week but the time has come for me to share some things I have loved throughout April. I have also been trying to mention some more random things in my favourite posts so let me know whether you like more random things or not.
I wanted to mention two tv shows this month, both of which you can get on Netflix but the first one is Suits. This is a very different show for me as it is a more mature and probably meant for adults. Since I am going to be really bad at describing the show I am just going t insert the summary off Google, "In need of an associate, big-time Manhattan corporate lawyer Harvey Specter hires the only guy who impresses him -- college dropout Mike Ross. The fact that Ross isn't actually a lawyer isn't lost on Specter, who believes his new right-hand man is a legal prodigy with the book smarts of a Harvard law grad and the street smarts of a hustler. However, in order to keep their jobs, the charade must remain strictly between these two unconventional thinkers." I would really recommend the show if you are looking for a good show to binge watch.

How could I not mention Riverdale? I am a little late on the hype but it is a good show. Not going to lie, it is not my favourite but it is something I look forward to weekly. It is basically about a little town and it focuses on the teenage lives and some of the adult lives in the town after a tragic murder of one of the teenage boys. There are multiple plots to the show but the main one is who killed Jason Blossom? and I cannot wait to find out who it is. If you have not already watched the show, I highly suggest you do and if you do watch it, let me know some of you theories in the comments.
Heatwave - Calvin Harris
A song favourite this month has to be Heatwave. I have said that it is by Calvin Harris but it is actually a huge collaboration (so I couldn't be bothered mentioning everyone) but I am obsessed with this song at the moment. It is so different to anything I have heard before because there are so many different voices involved. Definitely a song you need to hear and one that I think is going to be huge this summer.

 Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream
This body butter is insane! I am not even joking, the smell is so amazing I am just obsessed. The scent is not going to be loved by all, it is very citrus and strong but I love it. Even though the scent is amazing, the formula is just as good. I use this of an evening and apply it to my legs and arms so when I wake up my skin is super soft. This does an amazing job at moisturizing and I would highly recommend.
 Mac In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara
I feel as though I have not stopped talking about this mascara, but I am just so in love with it. This mascara gives me length and volume as well as mainting it throughout the day, which tends to be the hardest thing to find in a mascara. Mac don't really seem to be known for their mascaras, but I would definitely recommend this one. The wand is definiely similar to other on the highstreet as it is that basic, plastic wand but the formula is so black and opaque, it makes it better then all of the others.

Freedom Duo Brow Powder in Soft Brown
I have had this product for a while and I always mention it in makeup looks but I have not yet mentioned it in a favourites. This is just a super simple duo brow powder but it is so underrated. I am pretty sure it costs around £3 and it is amazing. The pigment is great, they are super easy to apply and the colour matches my brows really well. I have been using this a lot over my pomade because it gives a much softer finish which I find more appropriate for a day to day basis. If you are in need of a good brow product then definitely give this one a go.

Barry M Chisel Cheeks Contour Kit
I have been using this contour kit so much recently that I just needed to mention it. Realistically, this is not one of my favourite bronzers/ contouring products but because I have been so pale recently, everything has been looking orange on me so I started to use this. I don't use the matte highlight shade because it is really powdery but I mix the two bronzing and contouring shades and apply it like a bronzer, and it just looks super natural and beautiful. Both powders are super pigmented, blendable and with a super fluffy brush, they apply lovely to the skin.
Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish
I have been so super lazy with skincare recently that it is just embarrassing but one product that has really stood out to me this month is this cleanser. I tried the cleanse and polish about this time last year but I just never got around to repurchasing it and I forgot how good it was. I love this cleanser because it is so creamy and it doesn't dry out your skin. It is also really good at removing makeup so I use this day and night just to clean and refresh my skin. I would also really recommend this scent but I do think that it was limited edition so I apologize if you can't get your hands on it.

Topshop Camouflage Shacket 
Sadly I didn't have the time to get a full shot of this so I will link it here if you are interested in seeing it. I have just been wearing it a lot recently, but I feel like there is currently an opinion going round that camouflage is cheap looking or "chavy", but I am trying to break that boundary. I have been wearing this a lot with just a super plain outfit and it really just adds something to the outfit. It is also called a Shacket, so it is perfect for this awkward weather.

What have you been loving recently?
