April Favourites

12:10 PM

April has been quite a hectic month. It's been incredibly busy at work, with a nice pause in the middle of the month to spend a week on the beach in Cancun, Mexico. And although beauty products weren't at the forefront of my thoughts, there were still quite a few items that I was a bit obsessed with.

1. Essence lipstick in "Barely There" - I haven't felt bothered this month to wear any bright lips, so nude lipsticks have been right up my alley. I've really been enjoying this $3 lipstick from Essence. This formula is so creamy and pigmented for the low price you pay. I'd definitely recommend picking some up from the drugstore!

2. MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in "Soft and Gentle" - This cult classic was my go-to highlighter for everyday I was in Mexico. I've also been loving using it as an eyeshadow. Aren't versatile products the best?

3. Flower Beauty Cream Blush in "Win Some, Rouge Some" - This is such a lovely, easy to blend, cream blush. As soon as the warmer weather comes around I tend to steer towards cream blushes, and this is my absolute favourite of the moment. You can pick it up at Walmart!

4. ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock Eyeshadow in "Lovely" - I raved about this cream shadow in my last blog post, and for good reason! The formula is amazing and the colour is perfect for spring and summer. That reminds me, I need to make another ColourPop order ASAP.

5. Maybelline Limited Edition Colour Tattoo in "Black Orchid" - I picked this eyeshadow up on a whim after seeing it in a new display in Shoppers Drug Mart, and instantly fell in love. The colour is so unique, and combined with one of my favourite formulas, it's definitely a winner.
