April Favorites

I hate to always comment on how quickly the months are going by but lately, it’s been ridiculous. In less than one month I will be graduating and moving on to the new chapter in my life. I feel like I just started high school and in a few weeks it will all be over! Alas, I digress.

Let’s move on to the makeup. I’ve had a handful of products that really impressed me this month, whether they’re new to me or not. The two foundations I’ve been enjoying are the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops in N30 and the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation in Light Sand. The CCD are lightweight yet they can be built up to quite a full coverage in one-four drops. I’ve been loving this to customize my perfect base and have been setting everything with the Tarte foundation for a hint of extra coverage and mattification. It doesn’t leave my skin looking cakey and keeps the shine at bay for at least five hours! This is definitely my Spring dream team. Next up is the Bare Minerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara in Black for extremely big and bold lashes. I’m usually not a fan of plastic mascara brushes, but I actually enjoy this one. It coats each lash and makes them extra voluminous and black; just what I want from a mascara. To round up my favorites from this month I have two drugstore lip products that are stellar. The Maybelline Color Whisper in Berry Ready is the most beautiful rich wine shade but it’s unfortunately not sold anywhere! I purchased this tube a couple years back and have been treasuring it so as not to use up extra product in the case that I can’t buy a new one! Last but not least is my favorite Maybelline Baby Lips Dr. Rescue in the shade Soothing Sorbet. This balm is moisturizing without being gloopy and adds just a hint of pink tint and shine. It’s the perfect shade for the Spring!
