Monthly Favorites/ April

Hello beauties! I can’t stress out enough how happy I am that April is now over! It was one of the hardest months of my entire life and I happily kissed it goodbye! On a brighter note though, I found some really lovely beauty bits that I fell completely in-love with and wanted to share them with you! :)

Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner ($32,95 / £15.50)

I recently did a full review on this product so you can see my full thoughts on it here, but I felt that I had to include it in my April favorites because it is a.m.a.z.i.n.g! <3 First of all, I love its concept – a conditioner but for your body, not your hair, which makes your skin feel so moisturized and soft that it’s actually incredible. I have pretty dry skin and this seriously really makes the biggest difference! Not to mention how fab it smells – like non-artificial roses with a hint of honey (to me at least) and I can sit there and sniff it all day. Literally! :) I can’t recommend this to you enough, so please go ahead and take a sample and you’ll see what it’s so wonderful about it!

Essie – Lilacism ($8 / £7,89)

If you are a regular reader of my blog then you are probably sick of seeing Essie’s Lilacism on so many posts recently but that’s purely because I love it so much! I probably wore it waaaay too much during April and I’ll probably continue applying it a lot during May as well hehe! :)) It is the most beautiful pastel lilac shade, the quality is amazing and I am honestly in-love with it! I did a proper review on this nail polish, you can have a peek here.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Darling Cherie ($7,49 / £7,99)

Ohh what can I say about this one… I think I found the perfect lips shade for me. It is this blue undertone lavender pink color, which compliments my skin beautifully, and I get SO many compliments when I’m wearing! (: It smells just like peppermint and leaves a lovey tingly feeling on the lips, which I adore, it’s very refreshing. The balm satin is relatively moisturizing even though it may get a tad drying after a while. What I am not really loving about this product is that it’s not as pigmented as I’d hoped it would be! I manage to get the opacity I want but I have to put a lot of it but oh well.. I guess we can’t have it all haha! See review and photos of it here.

YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #7 Lingerie Pink ($34,00 / £24,50)

I love anything pastel for spring and the lips are not exception. The one lippie product I’ve been obsessing over this month has been YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in the shade #7 Lingerie Pink. It is such a fab frost pastel pink color that again – compliments my pink undernoted skin so well! The formula is absolutely impeccable – super hydrating and creamy! I love the whole Rouge Volupte range and for me they are the best lipsticks. If you’d like to have one you can enter my ongoing GIVEAWAY here. (:

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette ($27 / £20)

I am such a fan of the original UD NAKED palette so when the ‘Basics’ one released in my country I immediately went and picked it up! What I love about it is that all shades (with the exception of Venus, which is a gorgeous satin white color) are matte. I love wearing both shimmery and matte eye shadows but the original NAKED have predominantly shimmery ones so I definitely needed to invers in a nice matte palette and the Basics was the perfect option. The quality of the eye shadows is amazing, they are super creamy, apply really easily and stay on for hours and hours! The three shades that I’ve been wearing the most have been W.O.S aka Walk Of Shame (pinky nude), Naked 2 (taupe brow with a hint of grey) and Faint (medium dark brow). All together they made the prettiest everyday natural eye makeup! <3

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Powder ($30)

Since the warmer months are fastly approaching I wanted to get a lighter, translucent powder and the lucky winner was Too Faced Primed & Poreless Powder, which I got a while ago. It adjusts to my skin tone really well and minimizes the appearance of pores amazingly! It feels so light and my skin is super smooth after applying it! I use it both as a primer (only with mineral makeup on top though) and as a setting powder and it really glues my makeup to my skin for hours! It is super fine and gentle and I find that the best brush to apply it with is my Real Techniques buffing brush whish gives me flawless finish! <3 I absolutely adore this powder and highly recommend checking it out!

Thank you all so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed my April Beauty Favorites! Definitely let me know what products you’ve been loving this past month! <3

Lots of love,
Andrea

  29. I love YSL lipsticks. The rouge volupte line has a lovely forumla that isn't too drying on the lips. I have one in "Peach Passion" and I love it. It is such a lovely summer shade.
