April Favorites!

This favorites post is kind of late, but better late than never!
Each month has been flying by, and April came and went too! This month I liked so many new things! Since it was the Sephora VIB sale I got some awesome new things that I have fallen in love with!

I finally used my Hourglass Ambient Bronzer, and I am beyond happy I picked it up during the sale! It adds the perfect tanned glow to my skin. I am so glad I picked it up in my VIB sale haul. If you are a beginner to bronzer like myself this is perfect. I heard the Too Faced 'Sweet Tea' bronzer is pretty similar so I might have to pick it up for a similarity post!

This month I loved 3 different highlights! The first one I loved was a rekindled love, and it was my BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in 'Champage Pop'. This highlighter is a collaboration with Jaclyn Hill, and it is so beautiful. It is the perfect light gold highlight. I am skeptical to see how it looks when I am darker, but for the moment I am loving it! It was limited edition when it first came out but it's now permanent which is great because it is really loved! My next highlight favorite is a new one. It is the highlight trio by City Colors Cosmetics. It came in my ipsy bag and surprisingly it is so amazing! I did a review on it in my April ipsy bag review, so I won't talk too much on it, but it is so great. It's 3 colors, and super thin which makes it the most ideal highlight to travel with! To read my other review on it, click here. And my last highlight favorite has been my Anastasia Beverly Hills glow kit in 'That Glow'. I also have a review on this highlight kit, so read it here. It is amazing, and I really recommend it. Even if you get the kit in 'Gleam' it is such a great value. I have seen preview pictures of another kit coming out, and I really want it too! So far from what I have seen it looks great!

I have slowly been becoming more and more obsessed with blush palettes, and because I missed out on the Tarte holiday blush palette as soon as I saw the tarteist blush palette was released I bought it immediately! I am so glad I picked up this palette because the blush shades are all so beautiful. All of the colors look great on my skin which is amazing because in most palettes there is always one color that I hate. Not in this one! The blushes are super pigmented and you only need to tap your brush in ever so gently. I love the hot pink packaging! It is my favorite color, and really convenient for travel. Go grab it if you don't have it already because it is limited edition!

Matte eyeshadows aren't usually my thing, but I wanted to have some more matte shadows in my collection to use as transitions shades. I decided on the Too Faced Natural Matte palette, and it is the best! It has the right amount of cool and warm matte shades so it's versatile!

I have been wanting to try out more brands that are less talked about on YouTube and one I decided on was Ciate. They are known for their awesome nail polishes, but they also make makeup. I grabbed a lipstick from the brand, and it is in collaboration with Olivia Palermo. I bought the Satin Kiss Lipstick in 'Praline'. I plan on having a full review on the Ciate brand makeup, so I won't get too much into this. But if you haven't tried it, I recommend it!

With all the online orders I make I get more samples than one person actually needs. I am so late to the bandwagon because I literally never hear anyone speak about this primer anymore, it is the Urban Decay Primer Potion. It is in the original formula. I love it so much!! I had been strictly using my NYX eyeshadow base but I am slowly liking it less and I found this sample in my collection. I am glad I started using it because it doesn't feel sticky on my lids. I noticed that primers that feel sticky on my lids tend to make my eyeshadows skip when I apply them. With the primer potion it doesn't skip at all and goes on smoothly. I will probably buy the full size when I run out of my sample!

And the last thing I have been loving is the L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer. I saw this and got really excited because I already love the brow mascara by L'Oreal, so I figured I would love this too. It is so amazing! The spooly at the end is perfect for brushing out my brows before I fill them in. The actual product is so great too. It is very pigmented, and easily glides on to make my eyebrows look darker, and more defined. I thought at first I wouldn't be that great at filling in my brows, but the tiny pencil makes it really easy, and I love that. I haven't ever tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow wiz, but with this affordable, amazing product I don't plan on it! I just plan on using this great brow pencil!

What did you love in the month of May? I always love to know for recommendations on things I should try! Let me know!
