Hello lovelies!~ I know this is sort of late >_< but I wanted to share with you the things I've been loving for the month of April! ^-^
MAC Immortal Flower, Illamasqua Katie, MAC Refined Golden Bronzer
I've featured Immortal Flower and Katie on my blog before but seriously I've been wearing these two blushes non-stop all month long. Immortal flower is limited edition but Illamasqua's Katie is permanent! I highly recommend you guys to check it out, it's the prettiest baby pink and it just gives your cheeks such a
cute glow! I like that it's matte but you can always add a shimmery highlight on top. Super pigmented as well, you need very little on your brush and blends out really nicely. I want to try out the other blushes from Illamasqua, they've got some high quality products! I'm pretty sure Mac's Refined Golden Bronzer is permanent. I've been starting to wear bronzer lately as the weather's been getting really sunny. It's a warm toned brown with some shimmer but the shimmer doesn't really show up that much on the skin. It's nice but I find I have to use a light hand or it can look really dark and orangey on my skin. I like to use this with Katie blush, they look really nice paired together. I'm actually on the look out for a good bronzer, any recommendations? The new Dior bronzers they have out in their summer collecton look promising!
Naruko Narcissus Total Defense Hydrating & Firming Gel
This has been my main moisturizer for about 4-5 months. I've been using it day and night. I have to say, I've been really enjoying this! It's a great light gel moisturizer that doesn't irritate or make my skin break out. I'm actually almost done my jar so I'm going to be doing a review on this that will be up most likely early next week if your interested ^-^.
Etude House Happy Tea Time Peach Tea Cleansing Foam
Etude House always has the cutest packaging ever ^-^. I've been using this foam cleanser for about 2 months now. I love peaches and anything peach scented! The peach scent on this isn't bad but not the best I've smelt. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling super clean. I'll also be doing a review on this as well and that'll be up early next week for those of you who are interested! They've got a couple other tea cleansers in this line that I want to try out. I purchased mine from Gmarket.
Essie Play Date, Nicole by OPI "Baby" Blue
These two colors were my favourite among the other polishes I wore in the month of April. Essie's Play Date is absolutely beautiful! It's bright and super flattering on the nails and toes. Really opaque, you only need two coats for perfect coverage. Really recommended! "Baby" Blue is a pretty baby blue lol. They pretty much described it spot on. This one is opaque as well, two coats will give you perfect coverage. Don't mind my chipped nail polish, it was time to take it off but I wanted to show you guys how it looked on the nails ^-^. Received lots of compliments while wearing these colors. Recommended! "Baby" Blue should be available at your local drugstores and Play Date should also be available at local salons or nail supply stores.
MAC Bare Study Paint Pot
I've been really enjoying this paint pot! It's a shimmery champagne that works as a great all over the lid color. Super easy to wear and you don't need to use a primer. You can use a brush but I find it better just applying it to the lids with my fingers. I've just been wearing this all over the lid and then eyeliner for a really simple clean look. Great for if your on the go or on your lazy days ^-^. It is pretty shimmery though so if your not into shimmery eyeshadow, this may not be your thing. If you haven't tried MAC paintpots before, try them out!
MAC Frankly Fresh, MAC Watch Me Shimmer, MAC Ever Hip, Revlon Cherry Tart, Revlon Red Velvet, Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Negligee Pink 256, Dior Addict Singuliere 465
MAC Frankly Fresh - A pretty nude shade with with very fine silver shimmer/sheen to it. It's a very wearable color. I like to just wear this by itself or over an overly pale nude lipstick to give it a bit more color. Good everyday lipgloss.
MAC Watch Me Simmer - A bright coral. I've already talked about this lipstick before so I won't go into to much detail. It's such a pretty color and I feel happy when wearing it ^-^. It was released with the Shop Cook collection and then was re-released again recently. I hope you guys were able to get your hands on it!
Ever Hip - A beautiful coral pink! One of my favourite coral peachy pinks to wear. I purchased mine when it originally came out in the Liberty of London collection. I`m glad I still have a good chunk of it left. I don`t wear it much during the fall or winter but I love wearing it during the spring and summer! I think it`s such a flattering shade on all skin tones. If I remember correctly, it did get re-released recently. It`s such a popular shade that I`m pretty sure MAC will relaunch it again sooner or later.
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss Negligee Pink 256 - A soft cream pink. This is actually the first and only Dior gloss I own at the moment. I love their lipgloss formula, it applies and feels smooth on the lip, and isn`t sticky. I think most of the shades in this line have tiny shimmers but this one is a cream finish, which I like. It looks nice on its own but looks great over pink lipsticks. If your looking for a neutral pink gloss I`d recommend this shade! I`m excited to try more colors from this line =)
Dior Addict Lipstick Singuliere 465 - An adorable creamsicle pink! One of my all-time favourite lipsticks ever! It looks like a really bright intense pink in the tube but when swatched, it`s actually the most cutest baby pink ever! What`s also neat about this lipstick is that you can layer to build up the color to almost the same shade as in the tube. The formula is excellent, it applies super smoothly to the lips and it feels moisturizing, not drying at all. I actually don`t mind sheer lipsticks as long as the formula is great and the color can be built up. If your looking for a super pigmented lipstick from the get go, then this might not appeal to you. It`s a cream finish. It just makes your lips look really cute, moist, and lush =). Refer to the swatches below to get an idea of what I mean!
Dior Singuliere, Dior Negligee Pink, Revlon Red Velvet, Revlon Cherry Tart, MAC Ever Hip, MAC Watch Me Simmer, Mac Frankly Fresh
I`ve been really into stacking bracelets lately. These are a few I`ve been enjoying wearing together this month! The white pyramid bracelet along with the beaded charm bracelets are all from H&M. The blue bangles are from F21.
EOS Lip Balm
This has been my go to lip balm as of late. When I first bought this, I wasn`t too fond of it to be honest. However, as I began to use it more and more, I grew to love it! ^^! Mine is in the scent Summer Fruit but I really want to try it in the baby pink flavor (I think it`s strawberry). Sadly, I haven`t seen that one anywhere near me.
I hope you enjoyed my April favourites! I promise to post my May favourites on time ^^! I have some reviews and other goods coming up so stay tuned!
Till next time,
