I can't believe it's already May...it seems like the year is zipping by so fast already! To start off this month, I thought it would be fun to share what I've been loving in April (and continue on with this "monthly favourites" series each month). So, let's get started!
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (Adore) - Beautiful (yet subtle) color, lasts for a decent amount of time (though will need to re-apply throughout the day), goes on smoothly and doesn't dry out lips. More of an autumn/winter color, though also perfect for a night out (without being too dramatic).
NYX Super FAT Eye Marker (Carbon Black) - Quick and easy application, good if you have an unsteady hand (like myself) as it gives you more control. Definitely my go-to eyeliner for both day and night!
Physicians Formula Blush (Rose) - Nice light color, perfect for everyday use.
NYX Le Chick Flick Waterproof Lashes Mascara - My absolute favorite mascara! It's perfect because it's waterproof (good for watery eyes like mine), non-clumping, and gives you longer and fuller eyelashes. My eyes are extremely sensitive, so I have to be picky when it comes to choosing a mascara. This stuff is the best that I've tried so far, and I would highly recommend it!
NYX High Definition Eye Shadow Base - This stuff is also amazing; it keeps your eyeshadow and eyeliner looking fresh all day with no creasing or smudging. I once put this on in the morning, had a busy day of school, played an hour of soccer in the evening, then went out partying and my eye makeup stayed on perfectly! Definitely a must-have!
MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer (NW20) - I have used this concealer for years, and it is the best that I've tried so far. Again, I have very sensitive eyes, and this is the only concealer that doesn't irritate them. It covers up my dark circles/blemishes wonderfully, though sometimes I do have issues with creasing.
NXY Eyebrow Cake Powder (Dark Brown/Brown) - Another NYX product! I love this eyebrow powder as it's very natural-looking and easy to apply, a definite staple in my makeup collection.
Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Spray Heat Protect & Shine - It's the first time I've tried this brand, and I wasn't disappointed. It protects my hair while making it feel so soft (and slightly shiny, though not the "glossy shine" it states). Overall a good product that I would definitely purchase again.
S Factor Smoothing Conditioner - Definitely one of the best conditioners I've used! I have very dry and brittle hair, and this stuff makes it so soft and silky-smooth.
Neutrogena Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream - I wanted to start taking better measures to help slow the ageing process of my skin (it's never too early to start right?), so I looked around for some night creams and was delighted to find one that has no harsh chemicals, sulfates, dyes, or parabens. I put it on right before I go to bed and it leaves my skin feeling so soft! Loving it so far.
Skin Food Rice Mask - I have seen beauty gurus such as BubzBeauty use various Skin Food products in the past, and have been wanting to try them for myself. So I went online to YesStyle and decided to order the rice mask, and have been absolutely loving it. It not only makes your skin extremely smooth and soft, but also nourishes it as well. I have been very pleased with the results, and would like to continue trying more Skin Food products in the future.
Keurig Single Serve Platinum Brewer - I never drank coffee before I got this, but this thing makes it so simple-stupid and awesome that I have now started drinking it (yes, I know I have weird logic, just roll with me here). You can make coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and even iced beverages in under one minute and it's so easy to use. It even comes with a reuseable filter for when you want to add your own coffee grounds or teabags (vs using the K-Cups). Such a convenient product that I am really enjoying.
That's it for my April favorites! Please fell free to post links to your monthly favorites posts, I would love to see what products you guys are loving right now!
