Weekend Wish List – Top 12 for April

It’s Weekend Wish List time again (that 4-day week has flown in quickly – thank goodness!). Following a bit of spring cleaning as a result of our How Old Is Your Make-Up post, we’re desperately in need of some new beauty goodness to fill up our stash.
April sees the release of some fantastic new products, so we’ve popped our pick into this edit along with some of our favourite new finds from across the web and on the High Street. Happy shopping!

These gorgeous pops of colour are exclusive to Boots in the UK and if the reviews we’ve seen so far are anything to go by, they’ll be flying off the Clinique counter this month. We couldn’t settle on just one colour for the edit so we’ve added them all – if it was a matter of life and death though (these things can happen!) we’d take Sweet Pop or Cherry Pop.

There are a fair few eyebrow kits on the market, but we’re excited to try this little No7 one. For the reasonable price of £12.95, the palette contains wax, 2 shades of powder and a highlighter as well as mini brushes to help you create perfectly defined brows.
This ‘lifestyle bible’ comes to us from vlogging powerhouse Fleur de Force. It brings together her favourite products and a collection of top tips to help us look and feel more fabulous. We’re eager to see if we enjoy Fleur in print as much as we do on screen.
Brand new from Aveda, this product was created to help wash away stress, which sounds pretty good to us (and our tense, laptop-strained necks). The gentle cleanser is enriched with nourishing sunflower and babassu oils and scented with relaxing lavender, lavandin and clary sage.
We’re already big fans of this best-seller due to its easy application and steadfast staying power, and there’s nothing we like more than new colours to add to our collection. Ms Brown hasn’t disappointed with the launch of 7 new delicious shades – Dusty Mauve, Pink Sparkle, Goldstone, Rich Caviar, Soft Peach, Taupe and our favourite, Heather Steel.
Fluttery, delicate fruit tree blossoms are hands down our favourite sign of springtime. Jo Malone has captured this beauty in a bottle for her fresh launch of fragrances – what could be more perfect for April’s scent? 
Hourglass’ Modernist eyeshadow range is just about the best looking thing we’ve seen in ages. There’s a range of 7 colour palettes to choose from and every single one is just, well, stunning. With a specially curated mixture of 5 dark and light shades in each, the easy-blending shadows are ideal for creating smokey evening looks as well as natural daytime ones. We’ve gone for Graphite here, but every palette in the collection is stellar – click here to view the full range at Liberty.
This cult product has been given a sexy new look for Spring 2015. Its sleek gold body has been engraved with a black spotted lace effect for this limited edition collectors version, and we love it. The product inside remains the same, providing a remedy to dark circles and sweeps of highlighting magic.
YSL’s new gloss promises to moisturise and plump lips for 6 hours, so it’s definitely worth a try in our book. It comes in just one shade, to be worn alone or layered on your chosen lip colour for a tailored shine.
We LOVE this nifty key from The Body Shop. It’s designed to help squeeze out the very last bit of your hand cream but can also be used for toothpaste (we’ve all been there), and any number of tube-packaged beauty products. Just slot the winding key on to the end of the tube and roll it down towards the nozzle to squeeze out every last bit. Genius!
Who isn’t a fan of Charlotte Tilbury? We are for sure. There are almost too many new products we want to try, but this one stuck out for a couple of reasons – 1. It’s called Magic (always a winner) and 2. It’s meant to give us “baby-soft, smooth, pert lips – lines are reduced, while dryness and chapping are soothed”.  We’d be foolish not to give it a shot. 
NARS, another one of our all-time favourite brands, just keep those incredible products coming. We recently reviewed the All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer and we’re eternally interested in their new releases. Exclusive to Liberty, the Dual-Intensity palette is available in 6 perfectly paired blush duos, designed to wear alone or together. The dreamy pigmented colour can be used both wet and dry so you have a higher degree of control over the finish you want for your look. Adoration is our pick, as it’s bright and rosy shades are just the thing from spring!
What products have you got on your shopping list for this month? We’d love to know!
