April Favorites


Hi Glammies! This month has flown by! How is it already May? With a beach trip and all the new spring makeup debuting at the drug store, I have a hefty love list for you!  From beauty to skincare-and even a book thrown in, here is my list of favorite things for the month of April!

Makeup: Loreal Paris Brow Stylist Designer in 305 Blonde

I love this brow pencil.  It is the old fashioned, sharpen yourself kind with the spooley on the end to tame those brow hairs!  The reason I love this so much is it’s not in plastic, it’s a wooden pencil.  I had been using the Anastasia Brow Wiz, along side other mechanical pencils, and the spoolies kept breaking off the end.  It drove me nuts.  This one is the perfect blonde color without looking orange or too dark, it lasts all day, even in water, and it’s sturdy and doesn’t break apart.

Maybelline Total Temptation Eyeshadow + Highlight Palette

I was pleasantly surprised by this palette. I bought it on a whim, and love the colors!  They are pigmented, but still neutral enough to wear day or night.  The orangey browns remind me a lot of the Urban Decay Heat Palette, as well as the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette.  The shining star of this though is definitely the pretty pink and gold highlight shades in the middle.  They are so glowy and pretty without being sparkly.  Love it!

Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter in Champagne

Speaking of highlighters, this one is fabulous!  It is a cream to powder finish, so you can use it with your fingers and you don’t even need a brush. I like the gold shade, but all the shades are beautiful, and it smells like the Butter Bronzer, which is a yummy coconut scent that reminds me of vacation.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Brown

I love the Scandaleyes liners and shadows from Rimmel, and I was in need of a basic brown liner for summer.  I picked this up, and haven’t regretted it.  It is water proof, so it will stay put, (even in your water line) and it’s got a bit of bronze in it so it off sets blue and green eyes.

Skincare: Dickinson’s Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths

These are my favorite all time makeup removing wipes, that I rediscovered this month.  Sometimes these are hard to find, but when I do find them I stock pile them! They have witch hazel in them, which I love for toning my skin.  They are the perfect amount of wet, and they are great in the summer when my skin is oilier than normal.  Google the benefits of Witch Hazel for your skin, and you will see why I love these so much.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30

This is my favorite summer moisturizer.  I’ve talked about it on my blog before. I put it on when I wear makeup, and when I’m barefaced.  It makes my skin feel moisturized and nourished, but not oily or greasy.  Bonus, it comes with SPF 30, so I feel protected when I’m out in the sun day to day, and it doesn’t make me break out, which a lot of sunscreen does!

Hope you all love these products as much as I do! Bonus favorite, finished a great beach read while at Pawleys a couple of weeks ago.  The Identicals, by Elin Hilderbrand is a sweet touching story about estranged twin sisters that come back together to deal with the ups and downs of life.  I love all Elin Hilderbrand books, and this one did not disappoint!

See you soon Glammies!
