These are the things I have been loving for the month of April!!
1. Make Up Geek Shadow|Cocoa Bear
This shadow is AWESOME for my brown babies! It’s the perfect transition color and brown enough to warm up your crease. It’s super pigmented and at a drugstore price. Marlena did an amazing job with these shadows. At $5.99 I’m totally impressed. According to the pictures I have found this is a dupe for MAC’s Brownscript. If you would like to purchase this shadow you can do so here.
2. MAC Studio Fixed Powder Foundation|NW 50
This powder will be my best friend this Spring and Summer. It has the right amount of coverage, light weight, and keeps oil at bay. I’m pretty sure by mid to late may I will have so much oil that you can take it off with a spatula and fry some chick. :/..plus it’s small and comes with a mirror. Purchase yours here.
3. Maybelline New York Eye Studio Gel Liner|Blackest Black
This liner is sooooo black and creamy and once it sets I have no problem with it smudging. It’s awesome. Applies well, super black, and only $7.00 what more could I ask for? Purchased mine at Dollar General but they can be found at your local drugstore, Target, Walmart, and maybe Ulta.
4. Sigma Beauty Blending Brush|E25
This brush is amazing! Reminiscent of the Mac 217 or the Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff brush it is the perfect brush to add color to your crease, or even your outer V in a softer format. I love this brush. I only have it in the travel size but it is still very much amazing. Price wise this brush sits in the middle between the 217 ($20.00) and the CS Pro Blending Fluff ($4.00) the E25 is moderately priced at $12.00 and you can purchase it here. Eventually I plan to add more Sigma Brushes to my collection but for now I’m loving the E25.
5. MAC Cosmetics Flat Top Definer Brush|212
This brush is my holy grail for adding concealer under my brows. Let’s face it Brows are the nipples of the face and a Beat BROW can change your life! That’s extra I know but Brows matter. This brush is stiff enough to get a very precise line underneath my brows to make for a sharp edge and gives the illusion that my brows are freshly groomed. Simply put it’s the bomb.com and you can purchase yours here.
6. NYX Butter Gloss|Tirimasu
NYX is one of the best drugstore level cosmetic brands. Found in Kmart, Walmart, Target, CVS, Ulta and the Local Beauty Supply Stores NYX is great. Tirimasu is a beautiful pinkish nude. It’s great to cost over a nude lipstick or just to wear alone. It’s has great color pay off and can stand alone and pull your FOTD together with out doing to much. I love it and it’s perfect for everyday wear. You can get yours here or here.
7. Too Faced Eyeshadow Primer|Shadow Insurace
This is a great primer for your eyes and even for your under eyes. It really does help with keeping oil at bay as well as helping your shadow last longer and avoid creasing. Will I repurchase probably not because my other primers work just as good. It’s still a favorite until it’s gone.
P.S. I got this for free with the purchase of my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette…Review coming soon!
8. Kellogg’s|Strawberry Pop Tarts
Yea I know you all are probably like WTF! However, I love Strawberry Pop Tarts and have been eating them all month. Not the most healthy but we all have a vice shoot me! I love them LOL and honestly felt like they deserved a mention just like my eye liner. Get them everywhere Pop Tarts are sold.
Colo Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss|Nude
For those of you who are not familiar with this brand it is brought to you by Whitening Lightening (Teeth Whitening Company). These glosses are getting MAJOR airtime on YouTube why you ask? Because, they are AWESOME SAUCE! The pigmentation is there and they are sticky enough to have longevity but not to annoy you. The coolest part about this gloss is it has a mirror on the side so you can see when applying and it also has a light inside the applicator to make seeing your lips in a dark space possible. It’s a great shade and complexion friendly. Their site is currently down so I can not give you the price point but I purchased mine from Hautelook.com for $14.99. These can be purchased here.
Have you purchased any of these products? Let me know below!!
Until next time…BE Fabulous!
