My Favorite Beauty Products from April
Hey guys! I know I’m a few days late, but my travel schedule with work has been crazy this month.
I’m really excited to share my favorites from this month. With summer just around the corner I know these are going to be my style staples! Each of the products below link to the product if you’re interested in checking them out for yourself 🙂 As always, there is something for every price point!
Some of you may know this already, but this is the most natural line of products that Sephora carries. Not only is this liquid foundation oil free, but it is also free of parabens, fragrance, mineral oils, talc, and gluten. On top of that it is vegan and cruelty-free, but still packed with vitamins and minerals! When I heard all of that I had to try it! I have semi-sensitive skin, so I am always pretty conscious about what I’m putting on my face.
One of my favorite things about this product, besides the fact that the color matches my skin perfectly, is that it can be sheer to full coverage depending on how you apply it. I usually have to use a sheer coverage foundation for my daytime casual look and then a full coverage foundation when I go out. Cover FX foundation allows me to determine my own coverage based how much I build the product up!
I plan on trying more of their products in the future so stay tuned!
Spring is my favorite season, you can finally start to trade your big bulky sweaters for sundresses. But you realize really quickly just how pale you got over the winter. I’m really against tanning beds and try to use sunscreen whenever I go outside, but I still love when my skin is bronzed and glowing. While I am a fan of Jergens (LINK) self tanners for maintaining a tan, I am in loveee with this St. Tropez self tanner.
You use a mitt to apply it, so you don’t have to worry about orange palms. You also get to control your tan based on the length of time you keep it on, compared to a lot of other self tanners that are based on the color that you buy. You also aren’t left walking around smelling like self tanner for the next couple of days, which is definitely a plus.
After using this I really feel like I just sat on a beach for a few hours, and when I want to be dramatic I look like I just got back from vacation 🙂
Another product free of parabens and sulfates, and packed with Vitamin A & E! I love the sensation of lip plumpers because they make me hyper aware of my lips. Something about this gloss makes me feel like I’m drawing attention to my lips, and isn’t that the whole point of lip products? This gloss comes in over 60 shades, so it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll find one you love!
Full disclosure, it is a little stickier than I usually go with for my lips, but the plumper part of it totally makes up for it IMO.
I lovee innovative products that make my life easier, and this is definitely one of them. I may have a slight obsession with all Living Proof products, but that’s only because they really work. I’m super picky about what I put in my hair and I dislike products more often than I like them, honestly. This is a style product for those of us with straight to wavy hair that like to let our hair air dry on occasion, aka my perfect weekend product.
You apply it in the shower and then lightly rinse it out, enhancing your hair’s natural texture and body while still leaving it soft and shiny. It’s sulfate and silicone free so it’s safe for chemically and color treated hair.
I usually hate cheap makeup brushes because they don’t apply my makeup evenly and/or they leave behind bristols on my face. This brush is similar to a Mac kabuki brush that I used to have, but it’s a fraction of the cost. I am literally obsessed with it. I use it to apply my powder foundation or my setting powder. It’s a really high quality kabuki brush for a really low cost.
Let me know if you have tried any of these products, if any products stick out to you, or if there’s anything I should review for next month!
