April Favorites

Looking back on the month, I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t actually have a favorite for everything. As some of you may know, on my last favorites post I had decided to write my favorite product from each category to have my own little twist. This month I’ll be adding in some new products that I want to try out instead! 

My first favorite for the month is my Tarte Tartelette in Bloom eyeshadow palette! I rediscovered this in my collection and since then I’ve been reaching for it nonstop. I personally love the way this product looks and smells – the packaging is beautiful. I love the combination of the pinks and purples. The shadows themselves are also stunning. They blend seamlessly and the pigmentation is phenomenal. This palette makes it extremely easy for you to transition between day and night time looks!

Up next is my Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder and man is that name a mouthful! This literally makes my skin feel like silk. I use the Real Techniques Setting Brush to apply it underneath my eyes to set my concealer and then I use the Luxie 520 Tapered Face Brush to apply the powder to the rest of my face. As much as I love this powder, I have had my eye on trying the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder and I hope to pick it up soon!

To be completely honest with y’all, I’m not sure if these are a full favorite yet; however, they’re the only blushes I’ve been reaching for. The Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting 16-Hour Blushes are quite beautiful. I have three shades in their mini-sized packaging. Your Love is King (purple), Justify my Love (pink), and Love Hangover (peach). They give the perfect amount of color to the cheeks and a little goes a long way. After using these I have come to want a full-size in the shade “Baby Love” – so I can’t wait to try that out!

The Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in the shade “Anti-Oxidant Berry” and the Mac lipstick in the shade “Modesty” have become staples for me this month. The baby lips range has been something I’ve loved for years now. There was a time when I collected every shade and to this day I still have about 20 different ones. This one in particular is actually not sold in the US but instead sold in China where I got it. I was able to get three others that I found in store with similar packaging and I love them all! I personally like how moisturizing and hydrating these have always felt on the lips and that’s why I’ve continued to buy them. I recommend these to everyone!

Mac lipsticks are probably some of my favorite lipstick formulas. Plus, I think they’re my favorite lipstick scent of all time. I haven’t been reaching for mattes lately because I’ve been loving a more creamy texture. Modesty is a Cremesheen finish. No matter what makeup look I’m wearing, this has been the perfect pink nude to pair with everything.

I’ve had my eye on two Dior lip products recently as well – the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick and the Dior Addict Lip Glow Reviving Lip Balm. Have you tried either? And the last beauty product I’ve been wanting is the NARS Soft Matte Concealer. I’ve heard such great reviews and need to try it for myself!

Lastly, we have my two favorite miscellaneous products!

For the spring time I’ve been loving this Victoria Secret Pure Daydream fragrance mist. I’m almost positive they don’t sell this packaging anymore but they may still have the scent! It’s described as “pearl orchid & pink currant” and I’ve been loving how fresh and floral it smells. I wear it every time I go out!

I also discovered a new gum and I’m in love. It’s the Stride gum in “Melopeach.” My guess is that it’s some cross between melons and peaches.. I mean that’s what it smells like! But I love peaches so I was super excited to try this. In case this is something you look for in gum – it is sugar free. I’ll still carry around my Orbit gum but now, I’ll always have a pack of this in my handbag as well!

  2. I love rediscovering something in my make up collection just like you rediscovered your Tartelette blush. It’s like Christmas because you definitely surprise yourself. That is how I am with shoes. I will be looking for one pair of shoes, open a box and be like I FORGOT ALL ABOUT YOU GUYS!! And proceed to think of what I can rock with them!

  4. I love the Baby Baby lip balm, and the color of the Mac. For some reason I try to get such pretty colors and when I get them home they turn out being some wild cotton candy color, or have some freaky purple tint to them. lol Love the list!

  5. I’ve always heard amazing things about Tarte products, but I’ve never tried any of them! Would you recommend other products from them, or is this palette really like “it” from them? Would love to get your thoughts!

    • I’m actually moving soon and I’ve been thinking for a long time now what I’m going to be putting in my travel bag because I’ll be without all my stuff for awhile – I’m probably going to write a post about it down the line as well! So I’m glad you asked. So a little insider rn going off how I’m liking my stuff at this moment – I think for sure I’d take at least one go to MAC lipstick, either my Tartelette in bloom palette or my Meet Matt(e) Trimony palette from theBalm, and then either my Charlotte Tilbury powder or my theBalm powder or both tbh! Hahahaha, I’m so indecisive right now but I’ll have more solid answers within the upcoming months, stay tuned xoxo

  6. Hi, I must admit I’m not a make up person really so I can’t really comment on the products and stuff. But the writing was friendly and flowed well which is good 🙂 One thing I might suggest (even though I’ve only been a blogger for all of 2 weeks) is maybe making the post a bit more structured? Like have a numbered list and or make each new thing a bit bolder? Just to break up the text a bit. I hope I’ve helped 🙂 if not feel free to go to mine and tell me what I’m doing wrong lol 🙂 Anyway keep up the good work!
