April Favourites!

With May approaching, I figured it was time to take a look back on the things I loved most over this past month!

Laura Mercier Highlighter
Got this not even a couple of weeks ago as a part of a 500 point perk Beauty Insider gift from Sephora. Worn it pretty much every day since. This highlighter has inspired me to go with a more natural look lately, ¬†because with its warm golden shimmery glow, add a touch of bronzer, and thats all I need. ¬†It’s pigmented, it glides on so smoothly, and it somehow in no way is sparkly/frosty. It will be perfect for the approaching summer. I am in love!

Rainforest Sugarcane Candle
It’s funny, other than my boyfriend and I, any friends I’ve had over have not liked this candle! lol But I personally love it…in fact I no longer even have it cause it is already completely gone. It’s hard to describe this scent. Definitely a light tropical smell. It’s description is that it is a mix of vanilla orchid, fresh lime, and raw sugarcane. Definitely don’t smell the vanilla, but I suppose that may be what adds to the lightness of it. Have any of you smelled this candle? Do you like it?

L’Oreal Paris Carbon Black Intense Liquid Eyeliner
Picked this up at the beginning of the month, have been using it since. It lives up to it’s name as an intense black, goes on smoothly and stays all day. The brush is super thin, making it easy to create a precise line or bold stroke.

Lanza Shampoo/Conditioner
Omg I am in love!! If you take anything from this post, please take this brand. I have the most difficult frizzy hair, and this stuff works better than ANYTHING I have ever tried. I have such a hard time not touching it because it is so incredibly soft and healthy looking. Yes, it is on the expensive side of things ($20.00), I fortunately got it on sale for $14, but even at full price I think this shampoo and conditioner are completely worth it.

Philosophy Purity Facial Cleanser
I discovered this facial cleanser this winter and it really does make a world of difference for dry skin. The reason for rediscovering my love for it this month was that I ran out, and since I wasn’t around a Sephora decided to try another brand. I guess my face had been so silky smooth for so long, that it was like seeing an unfriendly face after long periods of time — you just want to turn right back the other way! Picked it up again, using it daily, loving it big time all over again.

Bite Beauty, Deconstructed Rose “Two” Lipgloss
Recently purchased Bite Beauty’s Deconstructed Rose Lipgloss set (which I will be doing a review on very soon!) and have to say I am loving one particular lipgloss from the set, “Two” (yes their names are just numbers, lame.) Haven’t had too many fancy places to go this month, and from day-to-day I like a natural look. “Two” provides a very natural sheer pink that provides a touch of colour and a nice shine. Going to the movies, grocery shopping or out to dinner, I have been loving this gloss.
