Hello and happy April! Happy Easter! I have a bit of a different post today where I recap my beauty favorites over the past month!

This includes both skin care and makeup items that I’ve been loving lately. So let’s get to it!

Lets start with Skincare! I, like most people I’m sure, have a routine both in the morning and the evening with regards to my skin care. Here’s a few items that I’ve been loving this past month!

First, lets talk about this face lotion from the brand Fresh. It’s called the Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow face cream to be exact and it smells sooooooo good!

Not only does it smell good, but a little goes a long way and it feels super lightweight on the skin. Perfect for both day and evening beauty routines! It does retail for $42 so it is a bit pricy, but I think one jar will easily lasts me 6 months. Find out more about the product here!

Next item is a lip mask by Laneige! and oh.my.gosh. Ya’ll. I don’t usually wear “lip masks” or even really treat my lips, but this mask has me like….it’s so good!

{FYI: this is not the full size version, this is just the sample from Sephora, and I think you can still get it to try out!}

This Lip mask has changed my lips over the past month. It’s technically a sleeping mask, and I do mostly use it at night, but I will also use it in the morning while I’m doing my make up if I feel like my lips need a bit more moisture. So good! Check it out here!

Alright and last but not least in the skin care portion of this post, this Renewing Eye Cream by Murad!

This eye cream may come in a small package (0.5 FL. oz.) but it packs a punch for sure! It’s also a bit pricey ($80!!) but a little definitely goes a long way and you only need a little bit. I typically use this at night only, as a last step in my skin care routine. You can find out more about this product here!


Alright, moving on to BEAUTY items! First up, is kind of a bridge between skin care and beauty as it is a face primer/base for makeup. It’s the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base. Say that 5 times fast…

Anyway! I put off buying this product for so lone — lots of beauty influencers use it on the you tubes, but I just couldn’t see buying for $60! And besides, I had so many other primers to get through…but I actually found it on sale at Macy’s last month and decided, what the heck. I can save some cash and finally try it out. and guys. GUYS! It’s so good. Perfect to prep the skin for make up but also it just feels good. I love when a product just makes my skin feel good, ya know?

So anyway, is it necessary for your beauty routine? No. But is it awesome? Yes. Find out more here!

Alright, so I thought I was moving on to makeup, but nope! I have one. more. primer. for you. It’s the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer. And this paired with the bobbi brown face base is just pure magic. I love the way the “slip” of the hourglass primer just allows my foundation to just smooth onto my skin effortlessly. And it makes my pores look so small and it has sunscreen! Love it! You only need a little bit (I’m seeing a theme here…) and while it is pricey, I just got a sample from Sephora to try out and it’s lasted me almost all month!

The full size is $54 and I do think I will be purchasing it in the future, because it is just that good.

But that’s a great tip! If you’re not sure about a product and you live near a Sephora (I think Ulta does the same thing…) just ask for a sample — that way you can try it out without breaking the bank!

Alright Alright! Finally getting to the makeup favorites! First up, Benefit’s Bad Gal Bang Mascara!

Now, you’ve probably seen this mascara getting raved about by a lot of beauty guru’s and for good reason. It definitely gives your lashes a bang and does so without being gloppy and heavy.

I will say that it does stay wet for a little while, so just be aware that it’s not a super fast drying formula and it can smudge a bit if you don’t let it dry fully but for $24 it’s not a bad deal for full lashes!

Next up is this Always on Liquid Eye Liner by Smashbox. I was turned on to this by Tati Westbrook (a Youtuber) and she loves her long wear liner.

This liner is all that and more. with a smooth felt tip applicator, it is precise and allows you to get that “perfect” winged liner look. Best part? It doesn’t bleed! And it stays put. All things I look for in a good eye liner. Plus it’s $22 which is not bad for a smashbox product!

And finally! Last but not least, I have been LOVING this eyeshadow palette from Milani Cosmetics.  It is the #05 Earthy Elements Palette and it has the perfect orangey/brown shades that are a great transition from Winter to Spring. Plus its only $11 and you can find it at target!

The blend-ability of these shadows are great and the matte’s are super smooth and the shimmers have good color pay off. This palette is part of the everyday eyes collection from Milani and I don’t think you could go wrong with any of the color combos.

Alright, that’s it ya’ll! Let me know in the comments below if this type of post is something that you are interested in — I’m trying to branch out!

Hope ya’ll have a great Easter and a happy sunday!
