Hi everyone! It’s time for my monthly favorites. Actually, I’m a little late with this post. I always try to do this in the first week of the new month, but this time it didn’t work out this way. Anyway, who cares! On to the products that I’ve enjoyed quite a bit in April. Some you’ve probably already spotted on my blog (either in a haul or in a review) and others are brand new, bought here in The Netherlands.
As you can see it’s all makeup and makeup tools. I’ve been doing a ’5 minute face’ almost every day. I simply don’t have the time or energy to spend of doing my makeup in the morning. My baby boy still hasn’t mastered the art of sleeping through the night yet, so my nights have been short and my mornings have been rough!
Makeup wise, my focus has been on looking somewhat presentable, meaning: trying to hide my dark circles, acne scars and large pores. Slapping on three layers of mascara, winging my eyeliner and applying a different lip color every day has also been a way to try to look somewhat awake.
Below are my absolute favorites of the month of April.
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquers
601 Light Year, 100 Phenomenon and 303 Apocaliptic
I believe these are not available in the US yet. Too bad, because they are great! Very pigmented and not sticky whatsoever. They’re not very long-lasting, but that doesn’t bother me. The colors are beautiful!
Catrice Precision Lip Liners in 050 Wood You? and 060 Very Berry
Essence Stay matt Lip Cream in 02 Smooth Berry
These are also gems from the drugstore! The lighter lipliner is perfect for a nude lip and the berry one goes great with all of my pink lipsticks and glosses.
IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Brush (review)
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores
I’ve become a big fan of IT Cosmetics! Not only am I happy I discovered Bye Bye Under Eye a while back (I featured this concealer in my February Favorites), these two products are great as well! Bye Bye Pores is a loose powder that makes your pores look less visible and your skin look ‘softer’ (if that makes sense!).
Garnier BB Cream Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector
I’ve recently posted my (review) on this BB Cream. Garnier has had a BB Cream out for a while now, but this one (aimed at combination to oily skin) is fairly new. I have it in the color ‘deep’, which is a little too dark for me, but I mix it with my Missha’s Perfect Cover BB Cream (which is a little light for me) and it becomes the perfect shade!
Have you discovered anything new recently?
