April Favorites

Another month has come and gone and thaaaaat means more products that I cannot put down! I have kept things really simple around here, but reaaaaaaal glowy – so here are the products that I have loved for a minimal, fresh and glowing face the past month!

SUNLESS TANNER : You KNOW I am a self-proclaimed sunless tanner addict and I *thought* I had the best tanner money could buy, but theeeeeen, I got hooked into the instagram adds 😘 and ordered THIS ONE. Honey, even upon first application I was in love. Not only does this stuff develop quickly so you can shower within two hours of application (save those white sheets 🙌🏼), but the color is deep and warm while looking very natural. Believe you me, holy grail product!!

EYE CREAM : I used to think that eye cream was all a gimmick, honest. I thought it was just ANOTHER product to spend money on that I didn’t actually need. Well, my mind has been changed and now that I found THE RIGHT ONE, I can see what all the fuss is about!! I was sucked in to buying this after seeing the before/after pictures on Ulta, so I picked it up while it was on sale, but it will stay in my rotation forever!

CLEANSING BALM : I only use oils to cleanse my face because they easily remove waterproof liner, lipstick and mascara, but I have recently learned that not all cleansing oils are created equal. If you have been afraid to try cleansing oils THIS is the one to try!! Not only does it melt away all makeup, but It also hydrates with raspberry and cranberry seed oils and promotes a brighter complexion with radiance-boosting vitamin C ALLLLLL while being free of parabens, phthalates, SLS or synthetic fragrances.

LIQUID HIGHLIGHTER : These have been on my monthly favorites list for a few months now, but I got now shame. They are my favorite. Period!! On really really low maintenance days I use ‘Rose Gold‘ alone to add shimmer and color to my face and when I wear foundation I add ‘Champagne‘ or ‘Starlight‘ to my primer to keep my skin looking radiant! I cannot quit these and all the many uses for them OH AND the fact that they are only $9 a pop 👌🏼

DUO FIBER BRUSH : I ordered this brush on a whim, but I have since ordered a few more because I am OBSESSED!!! It blends fluids beaaaaauuuutifully and so not only do I love using this to apply foundation, but cream blush and highlighter. It is just $8, but performs like my high end brushes!

COLOURPOP LIP : When I can’t decide what lip to wear THIS formula is what I grab! I wish there were more colors, but right now ‘Party Wave’ and ‘Love Bite’ have been my go-to nudes that last through lots of soda drinking and burger eating 😘

HIGHLIGHTER WAND : This highlighter keeps popping up in my Instagram adds and since I am a girls girl you KNOW I was determined to get to the bottom of the advertising!! I ordered THIS with real low expectations, but it has become my every day boo and delivers each and every time I use it. To say I am in love, might actually be an understatement!

BEST BRONZER : I am always on the hunt for the newest a best products on the market for you babes, but sometimes it just feels good to use a product that I have loved for years and that I KNOW will werk! THIS bronzer has been in my makeup routine for almost a decade and it never disappoints. *It’s ON SALE now too!!

LIPGLOSS : I was sent this gloss from Urban Decay, but I have already purchased the colors I love for friends and back-ups of the colors that I am obsessed with. These are refreshing on the lips , the colors are incredible and the shine is HIIIIIIGH! My favorite shades of the month are ‘Candy Flip‘ and ‘SPL‘!

DEWY SETTING SPRAY : I have owned THIS setting spray for years now, but have just recently fallen back in love with it. How a spray can extend the wear of your makeup AND give you a glow all day is beyond me, but I am living for it!! *Buy THIS SET for a better deal!

LAUNDRY SCENT : My sister in law introduced me to this laundry scent booster and doing laundry has never been better!! I didn’t know what I was missing, but our house will never be without this.

SONG : The song ‘Mistakes’ by Basenji has been on repeat in my car, booming through the house, blasting in my headphones while I am at Ulta and has been my go-to while doing my makeup this month!!

That’s all folks!! Cheers to a new month, but if there is a product that you are dying to try or one you want to see if it will make it to my favorites list, leave a comment below so I can try it!!

xo, Kate
