April 2015 Favorites

When I fall in love with certain products I tend to get sort of boring with my beauty routine. Finally I've found a few new to me products I just have to share.
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in 33
If you've read my blog or followed me on social media for some time, you know by now that I love Rimmel lipsticks.  The pink color is so fun for summer and as I've mentioned before these lipsticks stay on quite well for drugstore products.

Pure Maracuja Oil by Tarte
My skin is pretty dry year round. This stuff helps keep it moisturized and dewy without leaving an oily residue. There are several sizes availble for this product, but I love the roller ball because it is cool to the touch and so refreshing to apply to tired dry skin.

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
Freckles and foundation don't always play nice together. It is just a fact of life. Before this I was using Make Up For Ever Foundation and basically just covering my freckles because I was so over trying to deal with them. When I ran out I stopped into Sephora and was introduced to this. I've been using it for ten months now. It has just enough coverage that it helps reduce the redness that I tend to get around my nose, but allows my freckles to show through without making it look like my face is dirty. This is definitely a medium coverage foundation, it won't hide everything, but it makes my skin appear smooth and does not feel oily.

They're Real! Push-Up Liner by Benefit Cosmetics
Nothing beats a winged eyeliner look done with gel liner. Unfortunately, I am the worst at using gel liners. I either forget to put the lid back on as I rush off in the morning and they dry out, or if I manage to keep them around long enough I still end up jabbing myself in the eye with the brush or making a weird eyeliner mess as I attempt to put it on. This liner has fixed all of that. The slanted applicator tip is a little weird to get used to, but after a few minutes it really is easy to apply. The applicator also allows you to really get into the lash line. The only con is that this product does not travel well. I'm not sure if it is the altitude change or temperature change, but the gel tends to seep out a bit between destinations. I know not everyone loves this liner, but if you're looking for an easy to apply gel liner this is the one.

My last favorite is calligraphy. I'll admit, I'm not that good yet, but it is so fun and therapeutic. I can never sit still and just watch a tv show, so I've begun writing and watching.
