It’s finally May! I gotta be honest, April felt like it was never gonna end. It was a busy and stressful month but I got through it. Anyways, it’s time for April favorites! After all the hauls I’ve done for the past two months, I found a bunch of new favorites along with possible holy grails. Hope you guys like my favs for April. Enjoy! Don’t forget to tell about your favorites for April in the comments section. Feel free to link you favorites post if you have one. I’d love to check it out.

For April’s favorites, My Melody will be joining us as I show you guys my favorites.

Heart on collage
First, I have a lippie stix and lip pencil from ColourPop both in the color Heart On. It’s a magenta color with some red tones. I love that they added the red tones to Heart On. It makes the color more wearable and toned down. I can’t wear some magenta colors because they’re too bright and clashing with my skin tone but this is more wearable for people who have darker skin tones because of the red tones in it.

Mac high strung collage
Since it’s spring, my looks have been more colorful than usual. I needed something to be toned down, so I’ve been wearing this High Strung by Mac with my colorful looks. It’s a beautiful champagne rose color with some silver shimmer. Beware with the looks you wear this lipstick with! It is a frost finish, so if you’re not careful, it can make you look flushed and zombie like. I have a medium skin tone and it’s still wearable for me. But if you have a lighter skin tone (especially those who are really pale), this is going to look gorgeous on you!

Mac Melba Collage
I picked out another Mac product. This time it’s a blush and in the color Melba. It’s a matte warm coral, peach blush. This blush looks great with any warm look and it’s also a universal color. It’s one of those blushes that will look good on anyone in any skin tone. A lot of my looks have been warmer because of the spring season and upcoming summer season. When I didn’t want to think about what blush to wear, I would just choose Melba and it would look great with whatever warm look I had for that day.

Becca Opal collage
There’s not much I can say about this highlighter. If you haven’t tried or heard of Becca’s Opal highlighter, you need to. It’s amazing! Seriously, go out and try it at Sephora or Ulta. My swatch is crap but even if I got a good one, you wouldn’t be able to tell how gorgeous it is until you try it. It’s also a universal color. I believe that it will look great on any skin tone.

roller lash mascara
I have a review coming up for this. I’m sure a lot of you have heard about Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara. There’s been some controversy on whether it lives up to the hype and its promises. I will voice out my opinion on my review but in general, I really like. It’s the only mascara I’ve worn this month.

beauty blender
First of all, I apologize that my Beauty Blender is dirty. I used it for the past two day and haven’t had time to clean it. I bought this in October and I just opened it halfway through March. There’s been so much hype about it but I never really jumped on the hype until now. I guess I was scared of it. In the makeup world, sponges are looked down on because of sanitary issues but this stuff is awesome! It’s so easy to use and it applies my foundation better than my current foundation brush. It also makes my foundation look more natural and flawless. I’m glad I finally tried it.

belief moisturizer
My daytime moisturizer ran out months ago. I’ve using my First Aid Beauty cream moisturizer which I love because it healed my skin during the fall and winter season. I still love it even now but I felt it was too heavy to use in the morning, so I picked this up about a month ago and so far I love it. This is gel based but it feels so light and moisturizing. Perfect for a daytime moisturizer.

batiste blush
Batiste Dry Shampoo is officially my favorite dry shampoo. First of all, I’m happy with the price and it goes on sale often at Ulta. Also, it sprays on white powder but it doesn’t stay on white on your hair. I have lighter hair now but I still have dark roots and with all other dry shampoos I’ve tried, I always had an issue with the white powder not fading away no matter how much I comb or massage my hair. But this dry shampoo’s white powder actually fades away. This one is blush, I want to try other scents but they were all sold out 😦

love is heavenly
This is my favorite perfume from Victoria Secret. I am obsessed with scent. Everything about this scent screams spring and summer to me for no particular reason. I don’t really know what else to say about it. This stuff smells amazing and perfect for the upcoming season.

Alright that’s pretty much it. I hope you guys enjoyed it!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

As always,
Nicole ❀

    • Ohhh…that’s a hard one. I love both but I would say if you get you decide on hourglass, then get the palette. More bang for your buck if you know what I mean. In my experience, becca opal gives a glistening glow while hourglass gives a more natural glow to the skin. Just depends on your preference.
