Monthly Beauty Favourites ~ April 2024

Here's a look at what I was loving last month:

Monthly Beauty Favourites ~ April 2024
I purchased everything in this post

The last little bit I have no number of things I've been loving and honestly, I've been trying products a little slower, so my favourites have been a little smaller and more curated than the past few years! 

Here's a closer look at the best products I was using in April:

Monthly Beauty Favourites ~ April 2024

e.l.f. Cosmetics Camo Liquid Blush in Peach Perfect ~ $8.97 CAN. Build and blend a dewy pop of color with e.l.f. Cosmetics Camo Liquid Blush. The pigment-packed formula gives cheeks a long-lasting flush that’s flattering as e.l.f. lightweight liquid blush formula effortlessly blends out to a soft finish. The rounded, grooved applicator applies the perfect amount of blush every time. Apply with e.l.f.’s Liquid Blush Brush to help you blend like a pro.

I was so excited for these new elf products - I was hoping to have a full review on these, but alas I'm a little slow on the posting side! I will get one up soon so you can see it on and swatched. But, these are super pigmented and long-wearing. I like them with the blush brush and they were so well and dry down! 

e.l.f. Cosmetics Pout Clout Lip Plumping Pen in Bust A Mauve ~ $9.97 CAN. e.l.f. Cosmetics Pout Clout Lip Plumping Pen is an all-in-one lip plumper, gloss and balm that drenches lips in a sheer wash of color and shine while plumping the appearance of lips with an invigorating tingle. The juicy, non-sticky formula is infused with maracuja oil for added moisturizing benefits, plus blueberry, watermelon, and pomegranate extracts. The clean, click-up design makes it easy to apply, so you can pucker up with glossy sheen and plumper-looking lips.

These are so good - I know a lot of brands that are making these, but this formula is fabulous and affordable! These glide on super smoothly and leave just a hint of pigment, with a shiny glow and super soft finish. I love these so much! 

Monthly Beauty Favourites ~ April 2024

Good Molecules Gentle Retinol Cream ~ $11.00 CAN. Help reveal smoother, firmer-looking skin with this gentle, fragrance-free retinol treatment from Good Molecules. Formulated with .1% retinol, Gentle Retinol Cream helps to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and lack of elasticity. Nourishing, soothing ingredients help to hydrate and minimize dryness and irritation.

I have tried a few retinols before and I haven't quite found one that works for me without being super drying or flaking my skin - this one is really good. It's a gentle cream that I can use 2-3 times this week. It does make my skin dry but just needs a great moisturizer and this works so well. It's been great at smoothing and clearing my skin and hoping with prolonged use it will work it's magic - I've been using this for about two months and have see notable improvement too my overall skintone and evenness! 

What were you loving this month?!
