Favorites | Top 5 April 2017
It’s Favorites time again, and as usual I will link to full reviews at the end of the post.
So, first I wanted to talk about the Clinique High Impact mascara.
Now, this is just a sample size that I got in a gift set or something, but I do really like the way it makes my lashes look. It just gives them the perfect amount of lenght and volume, but it’s not clumpy or “too much” looking, if you know what I mean?
I also haven’t had any issues with it flaking or smudging, so I do enjoy this one.
Next up I have the Maybelline Matte&Poreless foundation.
Now, I have a weird relationship with this foundation, because I do really like it, but it does look a little bit cakey around my nose after a little while, so I don’t like it there.
But it does stay on all day (except on my nose) and it does give a nice, medium coverage, so I do like it overall, I just don’t know if I think it’s worth all of the hype it’s getting.
But it’s still the only foundation I’ve been using throughout the month, so I had to mention it.
Moving on I have the theBalm Highlite N’ ConTour palette.
Now, I have to be honest and say that I don’t use the entire palette, I mostly stick to the contour shades in this, and I love them.
They blend out so easily, they’re subtle enough, but they show up on my skin and I haven’t been able to put it down.
Now, I do like most of this palette, but the contour shades are the powders that I reach for the most.
Next I have the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer.
I love this bronzer so much, mostly becuase it is very subtle, and it’s not very pigmented, so it’s very easy to use.
And it’s also very natural looking on my skin, so it just gives the perfect, sun-kissed bronzed look to my face, and it’s not chalky or powdery looking, so I do really like this one.
And for my last favorite this month I have the Soap&Glory Sexy Motherpucker XL Extreme-Plump.
Now, I have a lot of line on my lips, and I’m not the biggest fan of those, so I use this to sort of smooth them out a little bit, and make them a little bit plumper.
This won’t give me Kylie Jenner lips by any means, but it does plump them just enough, so I’m not as self conscious about them when I use this, so I do really like this.
However, this is a lip-plumper, so it will “burn” a little, but I personally don’t find it to be too painfull or anything, but if you are sensitive to those kind of feelings, I don’t think that this is for you.
So, that’s it for my favorites this month.
Let me know some of the things that you’ve been loving throughout this month in the comments below.
