Hi guys! So April was a weird month, eh? It was still really cold here in Chicago and it was dreary and random. Not fun. On the one day it was warm I got sunburnt 😡 But not its May and it is looking hopeful! I just got back from a fun Prom weekend (btw last week was one of the most stressful weeks of my life yet far, because of Prom and college decisions, I’ll blog about that later) But anyways, here are my favorites over the past month.
Top Left- Covergirl truMagic The Sunkisser in the shade 110 Bronzer
I love this bronzer. It is a cream bronze so you have to rub it in to your skin, but it works really well with my skin and it blends beautifully. I use a contour brush instead of the sponge it comes with, but the sponge is helpful for large areas like the neck.
Top Middle- Rimmel London’s Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer
Sephora’s Colorful Liquid 24 HR Waterproof Eyeliner in 01 Black Lace
I loved both of these products this month. The eye shadow primer is great for everyday use. It is cheap and doesn’t last all day, but it works for school or work. The liquid liner is one of my favorites. Since it is waterproof when you wash it off it peels off than dissolves, which I love (so easy!) Sometimes it is a bit translucent so I have to shake the tube and reapply, but it isn’t bad for everyday use.
Top Right- Clinque Happy Perfume
This perfume is so fresh and sophisticated, it’s great. I got it for my birthday back in September, but I recently started wearing it a lot more often. I even put some in a travel perfume tube thingy (so good at words.)
Bottom Left- L’Oréal Paris Clean Artiste Oil Free Eye-Makeup Remover
This is an amazing eye makeup remover. I use a Q-tip with these and sweep under my eye in the morning and after I wash my face at night. It quickly removes the black from my mascara and the best part is that I don’t have to wash it off afterwards because it is oil free.
Bottom Middle- Neutrogena’s Nourishing Long Wear Makeup 12 HR Foundation in 30 Buff
This foundation has a great light-medium coverage, which I like because I hate looking like I’m wearing a lot of makeup. It is also extremely light so I don’t feel like I’m wearing it. I even wore it to prom I had so much faith. I tried this out because Bethany Mota from YouTube said she liked it, so I obviously had to get it (totally white girl moment.)
Bottom Right- Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Nail Color in 113 Sand Storm, 110 Clearly Quick, 230 Silver Sweep, 430 Brisk Blue, 150 Petal Pusher, and 130 Fuchsia Flare
What an amazing nail polish (or varnish.) I adore how quickly it dries on my nails. I am one of those people that hate painting my nails because I feel I can’t do anything for 30 minutes (and then I spend 3 hours doing nothing anyways.) Not all the colors are as opaque as I want them to be, but because it does dry fast,additional coats of polish isn’t that much of a hassle.
Top Left- Trader Joe’s Green Tea Infused Mints.
Holy moley are these good. It tastes like green tea and mint, which doesn’t sound good, but it is heavenly. I have given some to people who don’t even like tea and they think they are tasty. Highly recommend, I have to get more soon anyways.
Bottom Left- Trader Joe’s Fruit Jellies
Look more Trader Joe’s. These are delicious and I think I can get away with eating like five at a time because they are made with real fruit so they are healthy right? (Probably not) But if you have a major sweet tooth like me, these are amazing.
Right- Arizona Green Tea (Peach Flavored) Squeeze Bottle
So this is like those Mio things but with tea, I almost got the Arnold Palmer one (because favorite summer drink) but it was Strawberry flavored and I’m not in to that stuff. I personally love water, but sometimes you need something with more flavor, and this was cheap and makes a lot of serving and quick. I bring this with pretty much every where.
Well that is it for my favorites of last month. Talk to you next week. Bye 🙂
