April Favourites 2016

I can't believe we are already at the end of April! I've got loads of exciting things coming up and I can't wait to show you all.
So here are my April favourites...


My Favourites...


* Makeup Revolution Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette 
I received this palette on Christmas day in the Makeup Revolution advent calender so I've had it for a while. At first I didn't know what to do with it as I thought the colours weren't really for me. Recently I've been playing around with different colour eyeshadows and now I've fallen in love with this palette. I especially love the pink colours as they are perfect for Spring. I uploaded a YouTube video of a Spring makeup look I created using this eyeshadow palette so you can check that out in my last post! Make sure you subscribe! 

* Rimmel London Kate Moss 38 Lipstick
I'm sure I've mentioned this lipstick somewhere on my blog before. It's a perfect shade for Spring. I wore it the other day when it was really sunny out, my sister noticed and loved it so much that on the same day she went out and bought one for herself. Definitely a must have this Spring.

* The Body Shop Grapefruit Body Butter
Just recently, for some strange reason I've been loving The Body Shop's grapefruit scent. I've been using their shower gel a lot but I've really enjoyed their grapefruit body butter. I bought the small sample size because sometimes I think the larger body butters are a bit pricey or if I haven't tried a scent I like to purchase the sample sizes before I go ahead and purchase the larger size. Grapefruit has definitely passed with flying colours! 

* Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm in Strike A Rose
I've had this lip balm for a while but I've just recently found it in one of my old handbags when I was sorting out my new wardrobe layout. I was happy when I found it the only thing that's wrong with it is that it took a trip in the washing machine so it's not in perfect shape but lucky enough it still works and still smells of it's delicious scent. I forgot how vibrant pink it is compared to my other lip balms so it's nice to use on a subtle makeup kind of days. 

* Eylure Limited Edition Enchanted Beloved False Lashes 
If you follow me on Instagram (@jessicarachelxo) you'd see that I uploaded the sets that I got in my local Superdrug store. I think what drew me to these false lashes was the Spring themed packaging. I thought the false lashes were also perfect for Spring because they looked natural. I've tried all three of the ones I purchased and my most favourite is the Beloved set. 

* Eylure Pro Brow Dye Kit in Black
Recently I've started to dye my eyebrows. At first I was a bit nervous and left the dye on for the recommended time which I felt didn't really achieve a lot but the instructions says that you can leave the dye on longer for a darker effect. I took the chance and loved it! My eyebrows looked amazing. I felt like I didn't have to draw them on for a couple of days. It filled me with so much confidence. It says you can only get 12 uses out of it but I reckon you can probably get more out of it. 

And that's all of my April favourites. I hope you enjoyed reading them. 
I'm literally jumping with exciting for new things to come on my blog and new YouTube channel. I highly recommend following my Instagram as you'll find out more of what's coming and going on with my blogging life!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I shall see you in my next post,

Spring Pinks

As it's beginning to feel more like Spring, I decided to show you all my favourite pink beauty products that I love to wear during Spring. It's finally nice to be wearing Spring colours  and I especially can't wait for bright colours for Summer!

ALSO! Big news revealed at the end of this post so keep reading!



My Spring Pinks...

* Models Own Pink Veneer Nail Polish 

I haven't spoken about nail polish in forever! I wear it occasionally now because sadly I'm not allowed to wear it at work :( which is why the nail posts are a bit down but I can paint my toes! I love wearing Models Own Pink Veneer for Spring and Summer. It's a nice pastel pink colour perfect for both seasons. 

* Tanya Burr Lip Gloss in Cotton Cane 
* Tanya Burr Lip Gloss in Just Peachy 

You all know how much I love Tanya Burr lip glosses. In fact I think I have all her new collection as they're so pretty. For Spring I've loved wearing the Cotton Cane lip gloss which I received in her Christmas Deck the Hauls advent calendar. This lip gloss is a really nice creamy pastel pink colour which goes really nice with nude pink lips. The other lip gloss is the Just Peachy one. I purchased this a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. It's a peachy pink colour with a bit of sparkle which works great for Spring time makeup looks.

* Kiko Eyeshadow in 228

Kiko eyeshadows are amazing! I have so many that I've purchased but still need to try haha I'm getting there  slowly. You may have seen  this on my Instagram already but I shall do another makeup look with this eyeshadow and include it on my blog . It's a really pigmented eyeshadow which is what I love about it. 

* Makeup Revolution Baked Highlight in Pink Lights 

I absolutely adore this baked highlighter from Makeup Revolution called Pink Lights. Pink is even in the name so it makes it even more perfect to be featured in my 'Spring Pinks' I love this highlighter so much when baking as it stands out so well.

* Makeup Revolution Lipstick in Enchant 

I've mentioned this lipstick a while back in my blog somewhere (probably the Spring/Summer of 2015) so I thought I'd bring it back as I love using this so much. Enchant is one of my favourite lipsticks to wear in the Spring/Summer because it's a light pink shade and wears nicely on a bright sunny day. You'll see this lipstick feature more throughout the Spring/Summer of this year now haha.


* Pink Glitter

Who doesn't like a bit of glitter!? Only when it gets everywhere and you're taking months just to get rid of it haha. I've been absolutely in love with this glitter eyeshadow trend that I really wanted to give it a go myself. I didn't know what companies were good so in the end I used the tiny pots of glitter I had stashed away in a draw. It works the same believe it or not! I've been using gold a lot as you can tell by my Instagram but this pink glitter is perfect to bring your eyes out for Spring. I also can't wait to experiment more makeup looks with the other glitters I have. Comment below if you'd like to see them!

* Benefit Lolli Balm  

The Benefit Lolli Balm is the best pink lip balm I've purchased. I don't use it as much as I'd like because if you remember back in September 2015 I purchased a Benefit set on the ferry, they're only sample sizes so they aren't very big so this lip balm could probably run out in about a month. I don't have any intentions to purchase the full size one as I have so many lip balms anyway but maybe one day I'll change my mind

That's all my pink Spring products! 

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!

My blog series Jestival is coming soon! I'll write a blog post about it soon for you all. I can't wait to start Jestival though! 

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post and I shall see you in my next post,

Makeup Revolution Haul

If I said to you I wasn't obsessed with Makeup Revolution then you probably would think I'm lying haha. Recently I've been super obsessed with their makeup. New products have been launched and I couldn't wait to get my hands on them!
I did a massive online shop on their website. I was browsing around ready to pay when I realised I was £4.00 off a free mystery bag worth £25! So naturally I just carried on shopping for a bit. I've recently received my products and wanted to share them with you. I bought 7 items in total and got 8 free! What a bargain! I have so many products now. 



What I Purchased 

* Ultra Strobe Cream 

Everyone went absolutely crazy when this product was released and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I've used this product a couple of times already and I have to say it does work its wonders. 

* Pro Brush Cleansing Tool

Funnily enough I've been looking around for one of these cleaning brush tools for a while now and when I found that Makeup Revolution have their own, I thought I might as well start using one now. 

* Rose Gold Lipstick - Diamond Life - Chauffeur - Private Members Club

I finally gave in to myself and purchased 3 out of 5 Rose Gold lipsticks. The one I wanted most was Chauffeur. When the Rose Gold lipsticks were first released Chauffeur was the hardest one to purchase as it was always sold out and out of the three I purchased Chauffeur is my most used lipstick. I haven't got round to wearing the others yet. I've only swatched them but I'm really loving the colours.

* Fortune Favours the Brave Eyeshadow Palette 

I saw this eyeshadow palette at the Makeup Revolution 2nd birthday party and thought it looked gorgeous. BritishBeautyBlogger designed a 30 eyeshadow palette consisting of mattes, glimmer and sheen. I really wanted to get my hands on this palette but had trouble finding it in various Superdrug stores so I decided to purchase it online. The only down side was that whilst I was waiting for my parcel to arrive, all the Superdrug stores had stocked the palette by then! I've only used this palette once so far and I love it. Review and makeup looks are a must I think! 

* Ultra Metals Rose Gold Blush Brush 

This was my little add on item to make up for getting the mystery bag. I've now got all the Ultra Metals rose gold brushes. It was only one more brush to add to the collection so I thought why not!? I absolutely love the Ultra Metal brushes. They're the most prettiest brushes I own. I didn't want to use them so they could stay clean forever but I wanted to see what they were like and I'm impressed! 


The Mystery Bag

* Ultra Velour Lip Cream - Move Your Mouth Forever 

I love pairing this with Chauffeur for some reason. I adore this lip cream because it smells like caramel and I loveeeee caramel! 

* Vivid Blush Lacquer - O'boy

I've yet to try this product out but I've swatched this product and I really like how pigmented it is.

* #Liphug Lipstick - End With Beginnings 

I didn't expect to receive a lipstick in the mystery bag so when I found this lipstick I was really happy. It's a really bright pink colour so it's perfect for the upcoming Summer months! 

* Pure Pigments Eyeshadow - Rivalry 

This product was certainly different. Like every product I received, I swatched this product and thought it was a bit different. It's highly pigmented I can tell you that. I'm just a bit unsure on the greenish tones haha.

* The One Blush Stick - Malibu 

I've always wanted a blushing stick like this and voila! My dreams are coming true haha! I must admit when I swatched this on my arm the shade was very bold and that to me looked a bit scary. The next day I decided to give it a try so I used it carefully and it blended so well! I've used it a couple of more times now and I'm confident using it. I just love how well it blends!

* Single Eyeshadow - MMMM

I love this cute little single eyeshadow shade in MMMM. I've used this once and it's great for a natural everyday look. Whilst waiting for my order I picked up 5 more single eyeshadows so I've got myself a collection coming along.

* Colour Chaos Eyeshadow Palette 

This is definitely something different to what I'm used to. I wouldn't have personally purchased it myself but now that I own it I'll definitely give it a go! Why not eh?!

* Radiant Light - Glow 

Unfortunately this product was broken on arrival so I can't use this product 💔

And that's what I purchased/received! Head over to my Instagram @jessicarachelxo to see swatches and sneak peaks before I upload a blog post! I also post makeup looks as well so don't miss out on that.
I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post and I shall see you in my next post,
