Hi all! Can you believe April is almost over and May is on it’s way!
With my severe allergies, I didn’t wear a lot of makeup this month. But I was using a few skincare products that soothed my skin and was testing out some products I purchased in Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty.
Here are the products that I have been using. If I have reviewed them before, I will include the link, if not, I will link to where you can purchase:
For skincare, I have been using the Derma E Hydrating Eye Cream every day and night. It’s moisturizing and gentle on my dry, irritated eyes. The IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Neck Cream has been keeping my neck smooth and tight. But. my favorite skincare discovery is the G.M. Collin Hydramucine Optimal Serum. It contains a combination of high and low hyaluronic acid to provide moisture while an advanced hydrating formula prevents water loss, improves water circulation within the skin, stimulates ceramide production, and boosts skin’s ability to regulate moisture levels. It makes my dry, uncomfortable skin feel instantly hydrated. And it sinks right in and doesn’t leave skin greasy. I’ve been using it day and night!
My fave complexion products include the Beautyblender Selfie Shield primer with SPF 38. I received all three new primers for review, and I am enjoying them all. This is my current fave of the three because my sensitive skin has not been liking traditional sunscreen. This is a dry oil and sinks right into the skin without irritating it. I also have been loving my bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick SPF 25. I have it in the shades 1.5 Birch and 2.0 Vanilla. This is creamy and has a nice medium coverage. I can layer it on for more of a full coverage.
I picked up the Beauty Bakerie HD Flour Setting Powder (Translucent) the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot (Painterly (nude beige)) and the Lancome Cils Booster XL Vitamin Infused-Mascara Primer during the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Sale. I use all three every day now and love them all. The powder sets without making my skin look cakey. The paint pot primes my lids very nicely and my shadow lasts all day! I have always loved mascara primers. It’s nice to use a high end one at half price!
My favorite mascara, which is sadly almost at it’s expiration date is the Nanacoco Outlash Mascara. It makes my lashes very long and gives some volume and separation, too. It’s not too bold, so it’s my perfect every day mascara. The lovely Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette is my favorite palette find of the month. It’s a perfect everyday neutral palette that can be smoked up for evening looks. And I have also been loving the Urban Decay HI-FI Shine Ultra Cushion Lip Gloss. It is shiny without being sticky, and it smells and tastes minty!
What are you April beauty favorites? Any fun new finds this month?
