April 2017 - Monthly Favorites!

Here is what I have been loving in April:

Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in "Supernova" ~ $34.00. A highlighter stick that gives a hyper-lavender iridescent effect for an otherworldly aura. 

I had to try this highlighter as soon as Milk Makeup was available in Canada - I was thinking a purple highlighter would be hard to wear or this would be too much, but it is gorgeous! It has a nice light glow and is totally wearable, or you can build it up as much as you like! You can see my full review, swatches, and makeup look here

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Crème Lipstick in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" ~ sample size (full size is $38.00). A rich, creamy lipstick that redefines luxury with instant indulgent color while providing 10 hours of wear.

I must have received this in a Sephora sample pack and never really reached for it - I did a couple of makeup looks earlier this month and was so impressed with this lipstick! It is the perfect shade for me - my "my lips but better" lipstick! The texture is great and it lasts a long time!

Tony Moly Panda's Dream Smudge Out Mascara - 01 Volume ~ $16.66 CAN (can be found on ebay from $8-$12). Smudge-free mascara coats lashes for noticeable and impressive volume. Light formulation creates an even coat that lasts all day.

First off, the packaging of this mascara is delightful! So stinkin cute!! But second, this mascara is awesome - makes my lashes look great! I will have a review coming right away on this mascara so you guys can see how great it is soon! 

Garnier Clean Refreshing Remover Wet Cleansing Towelettes - Normal Skin ~ $10.99. Instantly removes dirt and makeup. Revitalizes skin. Peppermint and grape extracts. Oil free.

I have never found face wipes that I like until these! I ended up packing them along in my hospital bag and I used these so much! I used these for swatches, makeup, etc - finally found wipes I like!

Lush Cup O' Coffee Face And Body Mask ~ $22.95 for 325g (also, $11.95 for 150g). If you're a sucker for the strong, scrubby, stimulating type, this coffee-filled mask is just the thing to kick-start your day. Wake up and invigorate your skin and mind with the rich, intoxicating aroma of freshly brewed coffee and sweet roasted cocoa extract. Kaolin deeply cleanses impurities from the pores and ground coffee acts as a gentle scrub to buff away dryness and reveal glowing skin beneath. Smooth this one all over your body to feel soft, clean and wonderfully fragrant.

This is a great mask - it is for face and body! The best way to use it is apply it a few minutes before you get in the shower and then scrub it in and rinse off. It is made with actual coffee and coffee beans so it smells super strong and is such a good perk up in the morning!

  1. I'm also loving the Milk highlighting stick and that Marc Jacobs lipstick, which is a longtime love for me.

    1. Yes both are great! Can't believe I haven't tried the lipstick before - it's perfect!
