April 2014 Faves

Hi loves! I know that this post is way late since it’s been weeks since the last day of April. But still, “Monthly Faves” is something that I really love doing.

To be quite honest though, I wasn’t using that much make up last month since most of my days, I just spend it at home either working, watching a ton of TV series or blogging. But still, when I go out, these are the products that I often use.

SKIN CARE

April 2014 Faves
Asian Secrets Lulur Indonesian Whitening Facial Scrub
& Black Pomegranate Premium Kit (Gift Set)

I’ve been loving the Asian Secrets Lulur Indonesian Whitening Facial Scrub ever since I got it. It doesn’t feel too abrasive so you can use it every day. It feels very gentle on the face and it doesn’t feel like you’re trying to erase your entire face. I know I love exfoliating but sometimes there are those facial scrubs that are just way too abrasive and this isn’t one of them. Oh, and it smells so freakin’ good! (Click here for more info about this product) I’ve been using the Black Pomegranate Premium Kit (Gift Set) ever since I got it from my March Saladbox and even though I don’t “love it” love it, it’s just something that I have been using a lot. They didn’t break me out, the Emulsion, Cream and the Serum were very moisturizing, and they smell really great.

FACE

April 2014 Faves
Happy Skin Don’t Get Mad Get Even Hydrating Liquid Foundation in ’01 Soft Beige’
& Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in ‘Medium’

As much as I love BB creams, I still prefer foundations because they offer much more coverage. But since it’s summer, fondies can be a bit too heavy. I’ve been having random breakouts lately and the Happy Skin Don’t Get Mad Get Even Hydrating Liquid Foundation in ’01 Soft Beige’ is not like any of your typical foundations. It feels light like a BB cream but it has a coverage of a foundation. Oh, and if I need more coverage in some areas, I use Collection Cosmetics Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer in ‘Medium’. It’s definitely one of the best concealers I have ever tried. It’s so inexpensive and the quality’s really good. I gotta get me some backups!

CHEEKS

April 2014 Faves
Sleek LE Aqua Collection Blush in ‘Mirrored Pink’
& Clinique Cheek Pop in ‘Berry Pop’

I am so into Pink blushes & lipsticks lately and these blushes are just b-e-a-utiful! The Sleek LE Aqua Collection Blush in ‘Mirrored Pink’ is a beautiful pink, shimmery blush that brings color to your cheeks along with that youthful glow. It makes my skin looks really radiant, I love it. (Click here for review) I am also loving my Clinique Cheek Pop in ‘Berry Pop’. The packaging of this blush is so adorable, it’s so pigmented, and it looks so good on my skin. It is a powder blush but it has a really unique texture. Will do a review about this soon.

EYES

April 2014 Faves
BH Cosmetics It’s Judy Time Eyeshadow Palette
& Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara

I really like my BH Cosmetics It’s Judy Time Eyeshadow Palette because it’s not that expensive compared to other palettes, yet it offers the same quality. Also, it’s definitely something that I could wear on a daily basis. (Click here to read more about the product) Then I got my Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara from the BDJ Beauty Social. I had one like this before and I remembered not liking it. I ended up not using it, but for some reason I am beginning to like this one.

LIPS

April 2014 Faves
MAC Lipstick in ‘Chatterbox’, Revlon Superlustrous Matte Lipstick in ‘Pink Pout’
& Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in ‘Mauve Movement’

I am so into muted pink lipsticks right now. I haven’t been wearing loud pink lipsticks lately except when I’m attending events. But these lippies have been my goto lip colors. My current favorite lip combo is Revlon Superlustrous Matte Lipstick in ‘Pink Pout’ and the Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in ‘Mauve Movement’. ‘Pink Pout’ doesn’t look good on me when I wear it alone, which is probably the reason why I don’t use it that often but when I wear it with this gloss, OMG, it’s my perfect MLBB shade.

NAIL POLISH

April 2014 Faves
Caronia The Art Of Dance Special Collection
(L-R: Glisadde, Chasse & Pique)

I’m in love with all of these three nail polishes. They’re so opaque and they last long on my nails. All of them are from Caronia’s latest collection – The Art Of Dance (Click here for more info about these nail polishes).


So those are all of my favorite products for the month of April. Like I said, I haven’t been using a ton of makeup these days. How about you, loves? Have you been using anything in particular this month? Let me know.
