This month was a fairly easy month to pick my favorites. I have a few new items here that I really love and can see in my “must-haves” for a long time.
My skin care routine has been very simple this month, thanks to these amazing products. I no longer have that “ugh, I have to take my makeup off even though I’m super tired” feeling, if anything, I actually look forward to it every night. It definitely feels like a treat.
Goodness gracious, this smells like pure Caribbean heaven. I use this every time I come out of the shower. It feels so moisturizing and the smell lingers on forever.
This is one of those products that I look forward to using every night. Not only does it do the job, and extremely well, but it also makes my face feel like I just went to a spa. It removes makeup but also provides hydration and cleansing.
When I first ordered this I was a bit skeptical because I have combination skin, sometimes it’s dry, but sometimes it’s oily. It is also recommended that you replace your nighttime moisturizer with this so I wasn’t sure how that would end up working for me. Needless to say, it’s in my favorites because this product is absolutely amazing. Not only does it not feel oily on my face but when I wake up, my face feels so soft and hydrated. I’ve seen a huge improvement in my skin and I can attribute it to this product, as well as the next one in my list.
There is so much to say about this product and why I love it. I should probably do a review to explain its awesomeness. Just now I love it and that since I have been using it, my skin has changed dramatically. If I lost it today, I’d go and buy it again tomorrow. Period.
This is a brush that can be used for pretty much anything. I use it to apply my bronzer, blush and highlight. I love the shape and how easily it picks up product, deposits it and blends it beautifully.
I received a sample size of this with my ‘Miracle of Maracuja’ order and I cannot stop using it since. It’s a bit thicker than Urban Decay’s Primer Potion but I love that about it. It is also has a bit of a pinky undertone so it helps correct any darkness on the eyelid.
One of the best eyeshadows I own. The color is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a grayish, purple-ish, taupe color and I cannot help to wear this all the time. It looks amazing all over the lid but also in the crease with a lighter color on the lid. A must-have for sure.
One of my go-to blushes this month. I love how soft it looks on the skin, even though it looks uber scary in the pan. It’s the perfect pink for spring and summer.
I’ve been in the hunt for the perfect bronzer and although sometimes I wish that this one was a tad bit darker (for the summer), I really find this bronzer perfect for everyday use. I use it as a contour and then blend it over my cheeks, temples, and nose. It really gives an effortless warmth to my face.
Have I mentioned that I’m obsessed with Nars lately? They’ve easily become one of my favorite makeup brands along with MAC. Gina is a gorgeous matte peachy blush that has a more orangey tint but is still flattering on the skin. Absolutely perfect for spring and summer. I’ve also used it by applying MAC’s ‘Something Special’ creamblend blush first and then layering it with Gina on top. I love the combination.
The weather is changing and it is that time a year where I pull out my Fix+ and use it just about every day to set my makeup and give it longer staying power, as well as keep me refreshed throughout the day. I love carrying my mini Fix+ with me. It’s a must have in my Spring/Summer makeup bag.
Revlon’s lipsticks are fast becoming some of my favorites. I want to get them all! Their formula is so nice, long-lasting and non-drying, even the matte lipsticks. This one in particular has such a gorgeous coral color. It also has a slight sheen that looks beautiful with a nice tan. I love this lipstick!
