Favorite posts are my…favorite! 🙂
I love to see the things that people really enjoy using on a daily basis! I don’t regularly write these posts, but last week I realized that I have a handful of things [beauty products + misc. items] that I have been absolutely obsessed with this month + figured now would be a great time to share them. 🙂
FYI – I opted not to include any of the things that I already blogged about this month…like this eyeshadow palette, or these wedges, or these stunning nail polishes, or this amazing dry shampoo. Lucky for you, I’ve loved a LOT of things over the last 30 days…so there are plenty of others to share! 😉
Let’s get to it…
- Starbucks Tumbler
My girlfriend got me this tumbler for Christmas a couple of years ago! Lately, I’ve been carrying it around as if it were my child! I bring it with me everywhere + try refill at least 3 times a day! It seems to be the easiest way for me to stay hydrated. The sparkly straw helps too… 🙂
2. SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (2.5 oz.) • SK-II • $99
Infuenster recently sent this to me! It’s a refreshing essence that moisturizes the skin and supports skin cell renewal. You simply add a small amount of the water to to your hands + then pat it gently onto a clean face. I really enjoy using it before bed, it’s a great alternative to moisturizer at night. My skin loves to drink this stuff up, the only downside is that it’s quite pricey. Not sure that I’d go off + buy it on my own, but I’m still working my way through this bottle! We’ll see how many miracles have been worked when it’s all gone. 🙂
3. Revlon Coverstay Foundation
Revlon Colorstay for Combo/Oily Skin Makeup, Natural Tan 330 • Revlon • $10.39
I had been on the hunt for a new foundation for a while! I tried a couple of busts before reading the great reviews on the Revlon Colorstay line for combo/oily skin… so I decided to give it a try! It’s definitely full coverage + has a strong staying power that works incredibly with my skin. It reminds me of Maybelline’s FITMe [a former fave!] but I think I actually like this one better. 🙂
4. Maybelline Coverstick
Maybelline Cover Stick Concealer, Medium Beige • Maybelline • $4.66
My go-to Revlon Photoready concealer recently ran out, so I figured I’d try something different! I grabbed a Maybelline Coverstick in the shade Medium Beige + am really impressed by how smoothly it applies + how well it covers. A really affordable concealer that I’d highly recommend! 🙂
5. NYX Ombre Lip Duo
NYX Lipstick Duo • NYX • $11.99
You may have seen me Instagram this lip kit last week, but it *had* to reappear on this list! As a girl with super small lips, I’m always up to try any kind of plumping products. This duo doesn’t make your lips bigger, it just makes them look that way. On one end of the stick, there’s a darker shade to line, on the other is a lighter color to fill. The combo creates a gorgeous matte, ombre effect! It works SO well + has pretty decent staying power — although lots of eating/drinking will cause the middle to fade a bit [no big though, just quickly reapply the lighter color]! They had a bunch of different combos that I am itching to try! In the meantime, I’m super happy with Rags + Riches! 🙂
6. OGX Weightless Oil Mist
OGX Weightless Oil Mist, Moisture + Vitamin B5 • OGX • $6.89
I got this product at Beautycon last year + why I’ve waited so long to use it, I have no idea! I like to use an oil or serum after I style my hair, but most products are way too heavy + leave me with a grease situation. This mist however…SO lightweight! I spritz it onto the ends of my hair to add a little shine + take care of any dryness. It smells so delicious + has quickly become a favorite of mine.
7. Conair Wand
Conair YOU Conair® You Curl Curling Wand – 0.5″- 1″ • $17.99
Fun fact: my curling iron basically caught fire a couple of months ago…while I was curling my hair. Needless to say, I tossed the tool + replaced it with this Conair 1″ – .5″ barrel wand. This style iron creates curls that’ll hold for days! They come out very Shirley Temple-esque, but I just brush them out to create a softer, fuller look. I’m loving this tool lately + have been curling my hair more often! 🙂
8. Slimflex Chrome iPhone Covers
These are not available online, but find them at a Five Below near you!
I love to buy my iphone cases at Five Below. They have such a great selection + they’re so reasonable priced. I prefer cases that cover all edges of my phone + are rubber-based…no plastic! I came across this gold chrome cover last month + loved it so much that I went back to get a backup…and the silver version!
And that’s itttt! Those were just a few of the products/items I really loved in April + plan to continue using in the months to come! 🙂
Have you tried any of the above?
What were you loving in April?
