April Favorites!

Here's some products I've been loving the past month!

-Real Techniques Blush Brush: This is one of the brushes from Samantha Chapman's brush collection sold at Ulta (she's one half of the Pixiwoo sisters on youtube!). It may be a bit big for some people, but for me this brush applies both sheer and pigmented blushes flawlessly! The shape is just perfect for defining my cheekbones smoothly without creating a terrible stripe of blush. And the best part? It's VERY affordable!

-Rock and Republic Blending Blush: I've been using this brush to blend out colors in the crease and it does the job perfectly. It's a bit too fluffy for precise blending, but it does a wonderful job blending the crease with a bit of Mac Wedge at the tip!

-Mac Hush Cream Colour Base: I've been using this to give a glow on the tops of my cheekbones. It's a very pretty pearl with a touch of peachy/pink.

-Nars Mekong: Ever since I got this eyeshadow I've been using it nearly every other day. It's my favorite for defining the outer v and running along the outer part of the lower lashline. It's such a gorgeously pigmented sparkly brown and it goes with just about any other colors.

-Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Peach: This is a more recent acquisition so it's not included in the swatches I posted. It's a really pretty orangey-peach gloss that I can throw on alone or over any nude or orange-toned lipstick. I really love the colorburst glosses, they are fantastic quality for the price!

-Rock and Republic Eyeshadow in Ambition: Been using this color towards the inner part of my eye with brown or green eyeshadow looks. It has a gorgeous pearly yellowy-gold sheen.

-Bobbi Brown Corrector: I found this at my CCO a few weeks ago and it has become a vital part of my foundation routine. I don't have very dramatic under eye issues, usually only when i'm extremely tired however the corrector still makes a huge difference to me. It just brightens my eyes so I always look very fresh and awake. I set it with Laura Mercier transluscent powder and have not had a problem with creasing. Really wonderful product!

-Illamasqua Blush in Hussy: This was a purchase I made earlier this month when the Sephora VIB 15% sale was happening. It's a gorgeous matte bright pink watermelon. I will have to do a separate post on this blush because it is SO wonderful, I am in love. I have been itching to splurge on more of their blushes because the quality is impeccable!

What are your favorite products at the moment?!

  7. The red shimmers in Mekong look AMAZING :) The Real Techniques brushes look really promising. I'm thinking of picking up some. Do you know the quality of the other brushes in the collection? ^^

  8. @angelicbetrayal: Mekong is seriously amazing, it's possibly my favorite shadow ever! I was able to pick up some more of the brushes at Ulta the other day (they're doing buy 1 get 1 50% off) so i picked up the core collection and the single eyeshadow shader brush. I REALLY like the shader brush, it picks up color great! As for the other brushes, I really like the buffer brush and contour brush a lot. The quality is great, I honestly think they're fantastic brushes. I'll do a post on them soon!
