I’m a little late with my April Favorites, but here they are nonetheless. All my favorites are things that I’ve been loving so much! I mean, of course, monthly favorites are products or items you’re loving for that month… I’m just really excited and loving them more so than maybe past months favorites. LOL.
Benefit Cosmetics – Galifornia blush : Isn’t this blush so pretty?! I was completely drawn to this on looks alone. It’s a beautiful color once applied and I’ve been using it regularly since I got it. I just love everything about it! (I have a love/ hate relationship with “pretty” makeup… If the product itself is pretty, it always kills me to use it lol. This is a winner for sure!
Tarte – Make Believe In Yourself palette – I have been using this palette close to every single day! I love love love this palette! The colors are so gorgeous, long lasting, and so pigmented! This was actually my first eyeshadow palette from Tarte ( I bought it because it looked beautiful) I wasn’t sure how their shadows performed so I wasn’t sure if this was going to be heading back to the store or not…(luckily, it passed! 🙂 )
It’s funny, I love Tarte products, I buy their blushes, lippies, concealer, etc. I don’t know why I never purchased eyeshadow palettes from them before. With this one, I completely fell in love with it! Needless to say, I have some catching up to do when it comes to their eyeshadow palettes and will be buying more.
Tarte actually reposted my picture over the weekend on their Instagram & Twitter page!!! What!! It was such a surprise and I was so overjoyed!! I think it’s pretty cool when companies like a pic that you tag them in, not many of them do… Tarte, however, has liked the ones I’ve tagged them in and I’ve always appreciated that…. but reposting my pic?! So exciting!!
Doll Face – Sweet Rose 5- in- 1- Cleansing Cold Cream : This was a free product sent to me from Doll Face. As the name says, it’s a 5- in – 1 – product. It can be used as a makeup remover, cleanser, moisturizer, exfoliator, and brightener. I mainly use it to remove my makeup which has worked wonders! I’m so amazed how easily and quickly my makeup just comes off – mainly, my waterproof liquid liner and mascara. With some other products, I have to scrub and scrub and it leaves me with puffy or irritated eyes. This you just let sit for 2-3 min and then gently rub off with a wash cloth. (I do use it for all over my face as well to remove makeup) It leaves my skin so soft afterwards! Plus it does look better and brighter! This little thing is a miracle in a jar. I’ve been so obsessed with it!
Slmissglam – Unicorn Love Brushes & Pink & Lilac Glam Brush Books : If you guys have been following me, you’ve heard me talk about Slmissglam’s brushes before. I think back in one of my December posts I talked about wanting to buy some of her brushes. I purchased the Unicorn Love brushes and the ‘Sparkle Every Day’ makeup bag. I was in love before I bought these brushes… but having them in my hands now… ahh! Major heart eyes! They are simply stunning!
I use the makeup bag (it’s so roomy) as my every day makeup bag for my purse and of course add some of those Unicorn Love brushes and a couple other Slmissglam brushes in there.
So my dream of owning one of Slmissglam’s Glam Brush Books finally came true when I won her contest for two Brush Books! I picked the pink & lilac one. It literally made my day that I won!!
I have been using her brushes since they arrived. They’re not only gorgeous, but so fluffy and soft and work so well! I’m a little obsessed. 🙂
If you guys aren’t following her on Instagram or Twitter, I suggest giving her a follow! She is literally the sweetest and takes time to reply to her large following on her social media accounts. That’s one thing that I’ve always loved about her, she really takes the time out to send you back a hello and is so engaging with her followers. Plus she’s super sweet, gorgeous, and always spreading princess and unicorn vibes! Her Instagram is : @Slmissglam

Ofra – Beverly Hills highlighter : If I remember correctly, I think in that same post back in December when I was talking about wanting to try Slmissglam’s brushes, I mentioned I wanted to try this highlighter as well. (Unless I’m mixing up posts in my head lol) Either way, I finally decided to try something from Ofra Cosmetics! I wanted this because… yup, you guessed it – I liked the way it looked! I’m such a sucker.
Although, this looks pretty…. it works so well! I’m so happy with this purchase because this highlighter is blinding! (exactly the way I like em’) I haven’t used them one on one… (I like to swirl my brush around and get them all together) I am so impressed and such a fan! I now want to try other Ofra products. I’m probably going to check out the lippies next. 🙂
Honeymade_ : Personalized Unicorn cup : How cute is this cup?! I die over this every time I look at it! I bought this from @Honeymade_ (name on Instagram) from her Etsy store : HoneymadeDesigns Etsy Store she has such cute and adorable items in her store. Definitely worth checking out! You can have personalized items and I believe she does do custom made orders if you ask. She is so sweet and quick to respond. When I placed my order, she contacted me to make sure everything was correct and how I wanted it. Shipping was also very fast for my order. She’s so so sweet and lovely! I think you guys would find a lot of great items in her shop you’d like. 🙂 Give her a follow on Instagram! She posts the items she’s working on and ones listed in her shop. She also does some giveaways!
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Aurora Glow Kit : I’ve loved this glow kit from the moment I opened it up. It’s beautiful. The colors are stunning on and it’s just a glow kit I really enjoy. I don’t use it every single day… but it’s something I do pull out often. Love!
Ariana Grande perfume : Sweet Like Candy : I actually passed this one up at first. I sprayed it and didn’t like it. As I walked around the store, it was the dry down that got me. The more I walked around and let this scent linger on me… the more I loved it. I went home (without purchasing it) but could smell it all day! I had to go back the next day and buy the largest size they carried lol. It’s also super cute!
Makeup Revolution : Skin Kiss highlighters : First time trying Makeup Revolution and I’m so impressed! I saw these highlighters floating around Instagram. I loved the look of them. I loved how big they were. I loved the swatches I saw – so pigmented! I had to buy and I’m really happy that I did. These highlighters are perfect! I thought maybe they wouldn’t be as pigmented because this was a new brand to me… and I’m not a big fan of drug store makeup… boy was I proven wrong! These are so pigmented and perfect for the price. So inexpensive, but not lacking in quality at all! I’ve been reaching for these babies almost daily!
That’s all my monthly April favorites! Any of these make your list? Have you tried anything I have listed or want to? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
