April Favorites 2016

Well April's over with. Yeah it's over.
The older I get the faster time passes me by, it's criminal. Actually. 
I've been trying a ton of products the past 4 weeks, and narrowing them down to the best of the best was harder this time around. 
So let's jump right in to it before I remember another product I love. 

Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation
If you're following me on Instagram, then you saw my post the day I brought this home. I was eyeing it up literally since the day it released on Sephora's website, and I had made plans with a friend to head to a Sephora about on hour away to try it out (the Sephora near me is a small store inside JCPenney). Then one day I strolled around another local mall, and there was the entire Marc Jacobs line. I swatched the shade Cocoa Light, and it matches perfectly. If you haven't tried this out for yourself I highly recommend it. The thousands of reviews honestly don't even do it justice.
I don't wanna go in to too much detail now, I'm working on a full review that will be posted in the next couple of weeks.
I've been using this foundation almost everyday, at first I tried to limit the usage, this thing is $55 ya'll. But the coverage and finish is unbelievable. This will definitely be in my yearly favorites. Yeah, it's major. 

Milani Prime Shield (Matte)
This primer was released alongside the brand's new 2-in-1 Concealer and Foundation. I have oily skin, but love a full coverage foundation.. so I often find that a few hours into wearing a foundation I'm shining bright like a diamond. This primer smooths, and keeps my skin more matte than any high end primer I've owned in the past. And it's under $10. Win, win. 

L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer
Holy hell, I honestly don't know how I've survived this long without this damn brow pencil. 
I'm a dedicated user of the Anastasia Brow Pomade, but I'm also a dedicated sleeper, and full time snooze button offender. I wake up late 7 days a week, and the Brow Pomade makes doing my brows a 10minute process. Needless to say I needed a substitute to help speed up the process a bit. The color is perfect, the pigmentation is perfect, it's creamy, the pencil is retractable, and there's a spoolie on the opposite end of the pencil to groom rowdy brow hairs. This is my savior. It's comparable to the Anastasia Brow Pencil for about half the cost, and I think it might be better. I still love my Dipbrow though, don't get it twisted. 

NYX Soft Matte Cream in London & L.A. Girl Lip Paint in Elude
I rediscovered this soft matte lip cream while cleaning out some beauty products in March and I almost tossed it because it's quite nude for my skin tone. But paired with the lip paint it's gorgeous. 
I let the lip cream dry down, and then add a few dots of the lip paint on my bottom lips and rub it in a little..ugh, it's beautiful. 

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes
Yes, I know I'm late to this party, but I just never understood why anyone would spend $5 on 25 makeup wipes. I got bills, and I'm broke. So I never bought them. Last month my boyfriend actually picked these up for me when he ran into a drugstore. Now I understand all the hype. These things take off every single ounce of makeup. There's nothing really more to say about them. If you're in the market for an amazing makeup wipe and haven't tried these, trust me, spend the extra couple of bucks. You won't be disappointed. 

Well that's everything for this month, like I said in intro, I've been trying a bunch of new products, can't wait to see what make it into May's Favorites. 

Thanks for reading ! XO
