April 2019 Favorites

It’s that time again! Another month over and it’s time for the monthly favorites. I have quite a lot this time so you may want to grab a drink and a snack before you begin. Got it? Good. Let’s get started!

First up is the palette I made during the BYOP sale. The colors on the top row, from left to right are ‘Get Out’, ‘Let Me Explain’, ‘High Strung’, and ‘Pinky Promise’. In the middle row, left to right are ‘Stay Golden’, ‘Comeback Kid’, ‘Come and Get It’, and ‘Pretty Cruel. The final row of shadows contains ‘Cute Alert’, ’20 Something’, ‘Upon a Star’, and ‘Earthshine’. I have been so happy with the colors I chose, I’m still very much in the warm trend while most people seem to on the down swing of the warm tone fad. They are smooth and buttery, which is what I have come to expect from Colourpop.

I ❤ Revolution Nudes Chocolate palette. I have fallen hard for Revolution makeup, their palettes are beautiful and their face products are just as amazing. I got this this month and it became a product that was in my regular rotation of palettes for the whole month. I especially love those two glittery shades on the top in the middle.

The Maybelline The City Mini palette in 480 Matte About Town. I used to hate mattes but since the new year I’ve really enjoyed using mattes. I will never do a full matte eye, I love glitter and shiny too much, but I am loving learning to use mattes and this palette was the ticket. Especially for palettes without mattes or to be used with single shadows.

This is a Juicy Couture perfume in the classic sent. Thankfully I’m almost done with it because I have come to dislike it. It’s in here because I’ve used it all month and because of that I will be able to move on to better things.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H Makeup foundation. I bought this guy two years ago and it’s still going strong. I fell back in love with this foundation this month because it has such nice coverage but still looks natural. Full coverage and natural, sounds good to me!

MAC Fix+ limited edition from the Boom Boom Bloom collection This is my very first MAC Fix+ and I have been pleasantly surprised that I like it so much. This really has helped this month to melt my makeup together for a gorgeous smooth look.

Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder I have loved this powder for months but I don’t bring it up because it can be a bit pricey. The one you see here is a mini but I have a normal sized backup in my extras drawer. If you were to ask what I think the best loose powder is, I would hands down say the Laura Mercier Loose Translucent powder.

The highlighter I have been loving is from Colourpop and it is the Super Shock Cheek in Stole the Show. As I’ve said many times on my blog, I LOVE Colourpop! I really loved this this month because of the changing weather, I wanted something really dewy and light to go with the transition to Spring.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in ‘Telepathy’. I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try this vibrant green from Colourpop and, when paired with the teal liner I will talk about next, looks so stunning and amazing on my eyes.

e.l.f. Cream Eyeliner in Teal Tease. Since I wore this with the green all this month, I decided to wear it with other looks too and they turned out nicely! I’ve had this liner for a long time but it still is holding strong which is fabulous. It goes on smoothly with a bent brush.

Stila Convertible Color in Petunia Not exactly the best shot but you can see how well loved this product has been. It’s a great color on the cheeks for fair to light skin and can also be used on the lips for that perfect ‘flushed lip’ look.

Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Diamond Milk I have already sung the praises of this product on my Wednesday post which you can see here. These have a pleasant scent and I use them as a topper on practically everything I wear on my lips.

Revolution Conceal and Define concealer in C1 and C3 These very easily became my favorite concealers of the month. Their consistency is so creamy and the doe foot makes it a breeze to go on. They blend out nicely when I use my Beauty Blender. I haven’t tried a brush yet.

That’s it for this month’s favorites! What have you been loving this month? Have you tried any of these products? I’d love to know, so comment down below.

Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be YOU!!  Because you is the most beautiful you there is.
