Is it really May already? Where does the time go?! Well, as we all know, as another month goes by, another favorites post must be made.
April was a fairly good month. I did some traveling, there was Easter and a couple days of warm weather. My hopes are definitely up for May in terms of weather. I am so beyond ready for warmth and sunshine and shorts and sandals.
Here's what I've been lovin'...
You may see a reoccurring theme this month, I have pretty much been loving everything that I have hauled recently.
First up, the Too Faced Chocolate Bar. Oh man have I been loving this. It smells so amazing and the colors are all so beautiful. I love that I can create any look with this one palette and that there are a decent amount of matte shades. I took this on my mini vacation and it was perfect for day and evening. I will be posting a full review on this palette in a couple of days, so keep your eyes open for that one.
I have also been loving this Too Faced Natural Eyes palette that I got in my April POPSUGAR box. Any day that I was wearing eyeshadow, it was either this one or the Chocolate Bar palette. Again, the colors are beautiful and pigmented and so easy to blend. I will also be doing a full review on this and the post will probably be up sometime next week. I am so glad that I am getting to try more of Too Faced products and it only makes me want to try more.
Any day that I need my makeup to last longer than a normal work day, I like to put a little bit of the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I had an event last night and I needed my face makeup to last me all day, from 9:00am - 10:30pm. This stuff is magic. My makeup looked just as good at the party as it did when I first applied it. Because this is pretty expensive and I normally don't need my makeup to last all day, I only use this for special occasions.
And the foundation I have been loving.....the Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow! in the shade Petal. After a few mishaps, I have found that a little bit of this goes a long way. Too much foundation doesn't look cute. But this gives a very natural finish and feels really good on my skin.
Probably my favorite of all the favorites, the Jouer Mineral Powder Bronzer in Suntan. I am so in love with this. It gives me that perfect contour I have been looking for! It is not orange or muddy at all. It is so smooth and easy to blend. Love love love!!!!
My girlfriend and I went out the other weekend and got our toes done because it was one of those rare beautiful days out and we just had a really nice girls day out. I brought my China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy with me because this is the only polish I will wear on my toes in the Spring or Summer from now on. I got this last year and just became obsessed. It makes my feet look nice and tan and the color really pops.
Lastly, we have the Olay Total Effects 7 in One Anti-Aging Eye Treatment. I have been using this for about 2 months now and have really noticed a difference in my undereye area. It is more moisturized, smoother and brighter.
Those are all the products I have been loving for the past month.
