April has come and gone,
so all the showers will now bring some May flowers!
This month was not just
a factor in nature – it also brought some attention to some new beauty products
that I’ve become obsessed with! I became a
little more experimental with my beauty regime this month, and I’m happy to
share some of my hot ticket items with you. Here are my five favorite
products that I used in April – and don’t forget to test them out for
yourselves too. You made it through another month and totally deserve it!
Too Faced “The Return
of Sexy” Eye Shadow Palette
Sexy and seductive eyes
are always my go-to look! Too Faced eye shadow palettes have always been some of my absolute
favorites, so you can only imagine the glow in my eyes when I saw this in the
store. OMG! I am officially obsessed! The palette has a great range of subtle neutrals
and deep colors. Every color has a shimmer to add some spice and it lasts ALL
day. Yes ladies, ALL DAY!
Smashbox Camera Ready
I never gave in to the
hype that is THE “BB creams”. But, I started hearing some buzz about this
particular one from some of my fellow makeup gurus. Earlier this month I
decided to give in and give it a try. And, I have to say… I am in love! This is
a 5-in-1 cream that tints, moisturizes, primes, controls oils and has an SPF.
Not only is it protecting your face from harsh UV rays, it’s moisturizing AND
controlling oil (umm…HELLO! GENIUS!) and is the perfect solution to a flawless
Tarte Architect Brow
I’m a little too into
eyebrows. Forget those thin, over-plucked brows. Long, dark and thick are
totally in! Now, I’m not telling you to go all caveman on us (think Lily
Collins, Mila Kunis and Julianne Hough), but shapely and darkened brows are all
the rage! I used to do my own free-hand, until discovered this gem. This liner
and definer helps get that perfect shape and shading for your features. I totally recommend for my fellow eyebrow
MAC “Comic Cute” Nail
I’m not one to do my
own nails (if only I could keep a steady hand), but every once in a while I
will purchase my own nail polish and give it the old college try (you know, in
between salon visits). I love all the MAC colors and decided on “Comic Cute”
for summertime. This fun pink lasted longer than expected without chipping. The
color was vibrant and didn’t require more than two coats. Hallelujah!!
Bath & Body Works “Bali
Mango” Body Butter
Hello. My name is Kayla and I am addicted to Bath & Body
Works. During one of my multiple trips (and overspending) this month, was to stalk up
on all my favorite summer scents. Can you tell how badly I’m craving the beach?
Bali Mango was one I discovered last year, and it is back again along with Rio
Rumberry and Aruba Coconut (both of which I love too). They all come in sprays,
lotions and shower gels, so you can have these yummy scents from beginning to
end of your routine!
