Ahh, the last day of April. Can’t say I’ll miss this month too much. It was pretty busy. And still kinda cold. But a lot of good still managed to come out of April. I started a promising new job and bought a lot of new makeup. So I guess things weren’t so bad after all. Especially considering I came across a handful of new products that are unbelievably good. Take a look!
Ole Henriksen Black Currant Perfecting Complexion Oil was a lucky find at T.J.Maxx one day–an extremely lucky find! Not just because it was insanely cheap (under $15) but also because it’s hydrating and makes my skin positively radiant. Just a tiny amount mixed into my moisturizer gives this dewy all over glow that doesn’t look or feel greasy.
MAC Alpha Girl Beauty Powder turned out to be a surprisingly stunning highlight for me. I’ve been using it a ton lately because it’s so easy to blend and the golden glow really sets off any look. I’m glad I didn’t trust my instinct with this one! I just knew it was going to be a skip lol. Crazy how things work!
Dior Nude Air Serum was an impulse buy, honestly, but after trying it at the counter I felt like I needed it. This foundation is so incredibly lightweight, silky smooth and blendable. It takes like 0 effort to apply it and the finish is so natural. This stuff is absolutely amazing!
NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer Serum will probably make it on my faves list like every month. I’m obsessed with glowing like a fairy (or housewife) and this primer/serum gives that all over lit from within radiance that looks great alone or under makeup.
NYX Eyebrow Shaper is a rather new product but I’ve been using it everyday since I picked it up. This stuff makes a pretty great eyebrow primer! It locks my unruly brows in place and eliminates the need to use an eyebrow gel to set my brows. My mind was completely blown the first time I used it. I don’t know how I’ve lived without it!
Kat Von D L.U.V. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is like best thing since sliced bread right now. I love this lipstick! It goes on smooth and creamy then sets to the sexiest matte finish that lasts literally all day. I could never understand the hype with these but now I’m completely convinced that these things deserve the cult following.
Kiss Poise Looks So Natural Lashes are a good example of why splurging is a good idea when you’ve got coupons and Extra Care Bucks. I bought these on a whim, and what do you know, they’re actually pretty darn awesome. Just as the name states, they look super natural and they really are as light as a feather. I want to go back and grab more styles asap!
Nivea A Kiss of Moisture Lip Balm is another good reason to splurge when you’ve got coupons and such. I initially went to CVS in search of A Kiss of Milk & Honey when I saw these were on sale so I bought this one too. Turns out, I like A Kiss of Moisture soo much better! Which is saying a lot because A Kiss of Milk & Honey is pretty darn good too.
NARS Bourbon Street Larger Than Life Eyeliner is an old favorite so it always seems to make its way into my everyday rotation. Bourbon Street is a deep smoky eggplant that looks beautiful smudged along the bottom lid. I love using it smoke up my eyes and add a subtle pop of color.
