April Favourites

This past few months I have brought quite a lot of makeup, so this month I was trying a lot of new products and found some that I LOVE.


For face products this month i have been loving the Revlon Colourstay foundation. This was my first time trying this foundation and i wanted to know what all the hype was about. The main thing im in love with this foundation is the colour match. If your pale like myself, you may find it difficult to find a foundation that is lighter enough to match your skintone. I had no luck with foundations, they were always a little to dark but this foundation matches me perfectly. Its look really natural and stays on all day. Its medium to full coverage which i really like, i just hate the price! $35.00!! way overpriced....

For concealer this month i have been loving The Balm Time Balm concealer! Its a full coverage concealer which is why i brought it. I love how its full coverage and its just so bendable and easy to work with as well as staying put all day! 

For bronzer this month i have been loving The Balm Bahama Mama. Its has no orangeness to it at all! It has a few shimmer particles but definitely more on the matte side. Its a little hard to work with but once you get use to it, its easy. I love how it looks on the skin, it looks really natural.
Than i have The Balm blush in Hot Mama. Hot mama is a peachy blush with old shimmer. I love the gold shimmer in this blush, it gives such a nice natural glow without being overly shimmery. The pigmentation isn't all that great but definitely build able. 

I'm not a huge blush person but I've also been using Topshop blush in Head Over Heels a lot this month too. Its not a colour i would normally go for as i like a more of a settle darker blush compared to hot pinks etc,. However this blush is a coral colour which is so beautiful ! Its also my first cream blush, yay for that!? 

The last thing for my face products is the Mary Lou-manizer. I LOVE this highlight. Its a creamy, yellow toned highlight. Its definitely more of a extreme highlight compared to others but that's why i love it! Its looks so pretty, especially when its caught by the light. 

These are some (poorly) swatches top from bottom are Hot Mama blush, Bahama Mama bronzer, Topshop Head over heels and Mary Lou-manizer.
For eyes this month i have been loving the Physicians Formula nude palette. I got this on sale ( no way was i paying $26.00) The colours are so pretty, I'm obsessed  The pigmentation could be better, but overall its a awesome everyday nude palette. 

Ive also been loving the Maybelliene colour tattoo in Bad to the bronze. Its a really nice base but also a over the lid colour. You can just pop it on and go. 

The mascara from The Balm called Whats your type? Bodybuilder. It makes the eyelashes look long,defined,bold which i really really love.

Than lastly  the NYX Jumbo eye pencil in cottage cheese  Its an amazing inner corner highlight as well as a brow bone and in the water line. 
These are some (once again poorly) swatches of some of the eyeshadows from the Physicals Formula nude palette. 2nd from the bottom is The Maybelline colour tattoo and at the bottom is the NYX jumbo eye pencil (which the photo does not do it justice) 

Wow...yes a lot of favorites this month. But lastly, i have been loving the Sigma F82 round kabuki brush for foundation which is amazing! Its so soft and really easy to work with. For foundation i've also been loving the beauty blender which makes foundation so easy and quick to apply. It makes your foundation look flawless. Than the real technique expert face brush, i have really enjoyed using this for contouring as it gives a nice precise line but you can also use it to blend out.

So that's all my favorites for April, wow that was a lot... But i have been trying out so many products, that's why! Hope you guys enjoyed, what have you been loving through April?
