April Favorites!

It's that time again to reflect on some of the standout products I've been using for the month of April. Some are new, and some are old favorites I've re-discovered my love for.  I actually don't have too many products this time because I've been trying to rotate and use a wide variety of products that I have.

Here we go!

I just posted a review on the Balm Nude Dude palette so for a more in depth look, check out that post! I honestly used this palette everyday since I got it a few weeks ago, so it definitely deserves a place in my favorites this month.

I've had The Body Shop Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder for a while now, but I have been using it so much this past month. It's a fantastic matte bronzer that has a smooth feel and leaves a natural, light sun kissed look to the skin. It's a must have for fair skin girls for sure since they have even lighter shades. I have mine in the shade 03 Medium Matte. 

My fav lip products are my EOS lip balm in Vanilla Mint and NYX Butter Lipstick in Pops. I find that EOS lip balms are great for moisturizing the lips before applying lipstick because it's such a light texture that easily absorbs instead of a thicker, more glossy balm. It also just smells nice and minty. 

The NYX Butter lipstick, a product I got in an Ipsy bag a while back, has been my savior if I'm rushing out the door and don't want to have to worry or fuss about what lipstick I'm going to wear. It's such a creamy, smooth formula that is similar to a lip balm with a beautiful opaque color. Pops is a shade that is a mauvey nude that is close to my natural lip color. For this reason it's a staple I keep in my purse!

Other products I've found my way back to is my Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray. I've been using others but this one is just the best since it produces a fine mist and keeps my oil at bay all day. 

The Maybelline Rocket Mascara is probably my favorite mascara ever. It's a rubber brush that separates and volumizes my lashes without clumping and I always come back to it after trying other mascaras. L'oreal Voluminous mascara is a new one I'm trying and I definitely have been loving it in conjunction with the Rocket. It adds volume and lengthens my lashes, and the brush is small enough to get into the corners of my eyes. Love 'em both!

The NYC Smooth Skin Loose Powder in Translucent has been a game changer for me. It's so silky and finely milled that it blurs pores and gives the most smooth finish to the skin. It is an AMAZING setting powder with a little added coverage and I highly recommend it. AND it's only $3. Like WHAT!? Put down your computer and run to Target and get it now. You won't regret it. Shout out to Jessica Murphy on Youtube who opened my eyes to this amazing product!

It comes with a sifter but I took mine off to minimize the powdery mess it creates. So I just dip my brush directly in it and tap off the excess back in.

I also have a non-beauty related product, and that's this book called Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. Her cartoons and stories are absolutely hilarious and a great read when you want a pick me up and to laugh your ass off. I literally laugh out loud by myself while reading it. Plus Hyperbole and a Half memes are among my favorite. :) WARNING: She does use profanity so if you are not into that beware. She also has a blog so check it out here for more of her stories and cartoons!
