Monthly Favorites : My April Favorites!

May 3, 2013

April has been by far the craziest, busiest, awesomest, eventful month of my life. So much has happened during these 30 days.
I haven’t done a favorites post in such a long time! I feel that it has been literally ages. My favorite products have been the same for months until april. I’ve rediscovered so many products that I’ve used in the past and have not repurchased.

I have to start with my most obvious choice: Benefit Cosmetics. That brand stole my heart this month.

They’re Real is, as Simone would say, amaze-balls! If you haven’t tried yet, please do so. It will change your life. Literally. You might think that I’m crazy… Try it, you’ll understand what I mean.

I’m using up a sample of Porefessional and loving it. I’ve been putting this on everyday, with or without makeup. I know it’s bad to put primer everyday, but hey, it really is magic!

Highbeam is already a favorite of mine. I thought it deserved to be mentioned once more.

And the last Benefit product is Erase Paste: a new one for me. I’ve been loving it so far for dark circles. Review soon!

A new member to my makeup family has made it to my favorites list for month. I’ve tweeted about it, instagramed it and reviewed it. It’s the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in Honey Douce.

My last two products are from MAC. Surprise, surprise… They have been in my stash ever since I started blogging. I’ve been using Gingerly blush a lot lately to change from usual pink blushes. And the second product is a “long time not used” summer shade foundation that I absolutely love but wasn’t able to use it much due to the lack of tanning that I have. I know people in Dubai are supposed to be tanned but I have no time to go to the beach. Homework took over my life. Blame the french system! And no, I don’t fake tan. But I did consider that option…

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway, it ends on 5th May!

    I love using Porefessional over my foundation. It instantly fills in any pores and makes my face look flawless!

      Haven’t tried using it on top of my foundation. Will try that. Thanks for the trick!

    POREfessional is one of my new favorites too! I was so unsure of how it would feel on my face because it seems it would be oily, and it’s silky smooth!

    I really need to try those Revlon lip stains! And oh my goodness, I am almost giving into trying that Benefit mascara but I am so hesitant because rubber bristles don’t work well on my lashes but everyone keeps raving about the mascara!!

      Try asking for a sample at the Benefit counter, if they have any! Tell me what you think about it 😉
