Monthly Beauty Favorites

Fancy Francy Monthly Beauty Favorites

April went by faster than the speed of light, and May seems to be going at the same pace (Feliz Cinco de Mayo!) Last month there were a few items that I found myself constantly grabbing for (aka permanently attached to).

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish: The first item I talked about a few weeks ago when I first got introduced to it through Birchbox. Though I have been using this for the past few weeks, since it is a moisturizing cream based cleanser and the weather is warming up, I will probably switch to something lighter for the months to come.

Sephora Rose Gold Cream Blush: This is the first cream blush I've tried and though there was some getting use to (umm can we talk about how much brush hair gets stuck in this thing) I've really been loving the subtly color of  this blush and the long-lasting power of a cream vs powder.

Clinque Stay Matte Oil Free Foundation: I had been eyeing this product for a while and finally decided to take the plunge and buy it, and I'm sooo happy I did. As someone who doesn't wear foundation everyday, I wanted something that would be light and help to even out my skintone on those rough monday mornings. Although it's considered a foundation, this product is more of a tinted moisturizer/ BB cream with buildable coverage. Love this product for Spring/early Summer weather.

Clinque High Impact Mascara: Another gem by Clinque, I was gifted a sample of this mascara through some means and finally tried it last month. After using the sample up, I went out and bought the mascara and haven't looked back since.

Lush Cupcake face mask: Also another item I was introduced to through gifting. As someone who never really got the deal when it came to masks, I  can honestly say that this product produces a noticeable difference with my skin immediately. After using this product my face is brighter and tighter.

And there you have it. My favorite beauty goodies for the month of April. Comment below and let me know if you have tried these products or plan to. What were your favorite beauty products from last month?

  1. Now I'm curious about the Clinique foundation! I don't wear foundation at the moment, but I've been trying to get into a bit and I went to Sephora the other day and got color IQ'ed. They gave me a sample of a Clinique foundation (not this one, but I can't remember the name at the moment). I liked the way it look in the store, so I want to see if I can recreate the results at home!

  2. You should definitely try it! Let me know how you like it :)
