But we aren't here to talk weather. We are here to talk about my favorite products of the past month!
Stila Smudge Sticks (in many, many shades) - Does anyone else do this? You try something from a brand, not like it, and instinctively push aside the whole brand all together. That's what I did with Stila. I am really not a fan of their Lip Glazes and have pretty much ignored the brand ever since. But one day at Sephora my eye was drawn in by the stunning Mint Julep Smudge Stick. It glided on so effortlessly on to my skin, and seriously would not budge. And I knew right then and there these would be great friends with my oily lids. I think I have 6 now. Yeah, I'm hooked.
Sleek Makeup Blush in Rose Gold - Holy heck this blush is beautiful! It took me a while to bite the bullet because of all the comparisons to NARS Orgasm, which never really worked for me. But this... something about the peachy-coral-golden glow it gives is just breathtaking. I've only had this for just over a week, but I wore it every single day and I don't see me stopping anytime soon!
Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Chocolate - When my coveted Anastasia Brow Powder Duo finally crumbled into a million pieces I - 1) Cried a little inside and 2) Panicked because I didn't have a backup brow product. I made my way to Sephora, naked brows and all, and got a sample because I was worried about it being too dark. And it technically is, but I am totally digging the darker brows. I'm not even close to finishing the sample, but I've already got the full size waiting in the wings
Freeman Charcoal and Black Sugar Mask - This was another inspired purchase, this time from Beauty by Arielle. My skin was so dry and blah this winter, so now that warmer weather is around the corner, I'm trying to get it in tip top shape. This scrubby mask gets rid of the gunk and dullness, polishes my skin and makes it feel super clean and smooth. I highly recommend checking it out!
- No purchases for the entire month of April, and in May, not till the 29th (my birthday!)
- There are only two exceptions: I run out of something and don't have an alternative for it or it's a limited edition item that will justifiably be gone before the low buy is over
