I love both reading and writing these monthly favorite round-ups. It is always so much fun to share my favorites with you, or to read your guys favorites to look for stuff I should maybe pick up next. If you do have a recent favorites post feel free to drop a link in the comments so I can check it out!
I did stick to my usual skincare and haircare routine and even though I do have a lot of favorites stocked up in my bathroom shelves I have been focusing on using up some old stuff. So I don’t really have any skincare favorites to share this month. But I do have some pretty neat makeup items I am very excited about so lets get to it!
Anastasia Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette: I am probably not the only one that initially thought I did not intend to buy this in the first place. Because, you know, just another neural palette. But the temptation of the nice Anastasia eyeshadow formula and a well composed palette with shades I would definitely get a lot of use out of sucked me in. We all got way to many neutrals, and people tend to complain every time yet another neutral palette is realized. And I am very on board with that Idea. But guess what shades I use the most….right, those boring neutrals. This just happen to be a very good quality palette with lots of neutral options in addition to some very stunning glam shades to take any look to something part appropriate. Just a good all-rounder, and I am a big fan. I can just say it out loud. I like this better than Modern Renaissance!
Juvia’s Place Mini Masquerade Eyeshadow Palette: As I’ve mentioned over and over again both here on my blog and on my Instagram I am a huge fan of the Juvia’s Place eyeshadow formula. I have several of their palettes and love every single one, so there is no surprise that a new exciting Juvia’s palette would reach my monthly favorites list. This palette has a nice mixtures of brown neutrals and bright fun shades. The bright shades, particularly the blues, are my absolute favorites and the quality is just stunning! This was a hit in my books.
Zoeva Opulence Blush Palette: This one is so pretty both inside and out!. The packaging is to die for, and with a beautiful golden highlighter and two gorgeous blush shades I have no complains. Especially the middle shade has been used alot since I got it. It was actually a birthday gift I got in February, and I intended to put this in my monthly favorites in March but I forgot. Since I just continues using it also through April and it is such a pretty little thing I think it well deserves a spot among my faves.
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer: I blew some dust out of this cult highlighter that I’ve had for such a long time. This is among the first highlighters I got, way before highlighters were such a big thing as it is now. This product is still gorgeous and completely on par with new releases. The light gold blinding glow it give is just so gorgeous. I actually have a little dent in the pan even. So this is an old favorite brought back to life this month! I love rediscovering my own stash1
Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Conceal & Contour: This really deserves the hype it gets. It is well known for being a Tarte Shape Tape dupe. I don’t agree with that. I think Tarte has slightly more coverage, but I think the finish on this Makeup Revolution one is much nicer (less dry, more natural) so for me I would pick this over Tarte any day! And it is so cheap!
Colourpop Lux Lipsticks “Appy”: I need to get around to write a review about these guys now that I’ve tested out some of the shades properly, so I won’t tell to much about this. But this is a shade I have been wearing a lot this month because it is such a beautiful nude. I am also really pleased about it being a bullet lipstick. Honestly, even though I love so many of my liquid lipstick formulas, I just think it is so much more handy to apply from a bullet.
NYX Powder Puff Lippie “Squad Goals”: I had this for approximately 1.5 weeks but this goes straight on my favorites list. It has such a velvet matte finish on the lips without feeling drying at all. I consistency is different from anything else I’ve tried but in a good way. I don’t love that it’s in a squeezy tube and I think the smell is a bit chemical, but I love the looks of it and need to pick up at least one more color.
Eylure Definition Lashes N. 121: This is my second pair because I completely worn out a pair during April. I made so many looks with these lashes. My second pair of lashes don’t seem to be as good as the first one though. I used the first one arond 20 times before they were done, but now these have been used 4 times and start to look a bit off. I don’t know if Eylure usually have unregular quality or if I have just been unlucky? Anyway. the first pair held up really well, they are easy to apply, feel comfy and look so pretty!
Do we have any favorites in common? Let me know in the comments what products you have been loving in April, or drop me a link if you posted about it. I would love to hear about your favorites as well!
