March & April beauty favorites

Since it's already April, I have decided to combine my March and April beauty favorites into one post and I'm happy to tell you that the past two months have sorta been experimental. I have tried new foundations, high priced lippies, and finally found a face wash that I am comfortable enough using daily.




one \\ Bare Minerals foundation
About a month ago, I decided to dive into the world of mineral makeup. I had previously tried some samples of the Bare Minerals powder foundation and loved it, so I picked up the Get Started Kit. The kit includes a primer, brush, two different foundations- matte and regular, mineral veil, and all over face warmth- sorta like a bronzer. I really loved the regular foundation. It provides amazing coverage, doesn't cake up, and lasts practically all day. Plus if you keep buffing, there really isn't a way to use too much or too little. FYI- I picked up the "light" kit.

two \\ Benefit Puff Off
I had been skeptical of this miracle de-puffer for some time. But I decided to cash in some points at Sephora to grab a couple of samples. After one use, I was happy that I did. Not only did it help with the puffiness, it smoothed my under eye area, didn't irritate my sensitive skin, and also helped with the bags. I will be buying a full size tube.

three \\ Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose
I had been forever wanting to try this stuff, but I was always turned off by the high price tag- like $23 for a tube. So with my first check from the new job, I decided to take the plunge and I was super happy about it. At first, the lippy smells like lemon, but it doesn't have a taste once you apply it. It glides like butter, moisturizes extremely well, and gives off a nice pink sheen. And had SPF in it. Definitely worth the price.

four \\ Healthy Sexy Hair Sulfate-Free Soy Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner
I am a fan of Sexy Hair products- I used the Spray & Play hair spray for a good three years straight. Ulta was having a sale, so I decided to pick up some of the sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. I really like how it makes my hair feel and that it doesn't weigh it down.

five \\ Philosophy Purity Made Simple face wash
I don't think I actually have the words to describe how I feel about this face wash. It. Is. Amazing! I love how it takes off ALL of my makeup and doesn't leave a residue or burns my eyes. And it feels like it doesn't strip all of the moisture out of my skin. 

Have you ever tried my new favorite products?
