Wow! It has been a while, but I made it through exams and took a few days off. Now I am back and excited to be blogging again, I have some fun ideas coming up!
In the mean time let's look at my April favorites!
Katy Perry's Killer Queen Oh So Sheer, is a fantastic summer scent. I bought this with my 20% coupon from Ulta and have been loving it ever since. I also got a free bag with it which is going to be my pool/ beach bag. The notes, according the Katy Perry Fragrance website, are purple plum, mulberry, blackberry, elderberries, red velvet flower, rainbow plumeria, purple freesia, purple lilac, cashmeran, natural patchouli heart and liquid praline. I find the berries and freesia to be most noticeable. It stays about half the day maybe a little longer. The scent it light and refreshing. My only complaint is that the bottle does not come with the display stand they use in the store. I have made a temporary stand from the packaging and plan to make a better stand soon.
This shadow was in my April Ipsy Bag and I have come to love using it. It applies smoothly, almost no fall out and the most velvety texture. Its also the perfect color for everyday wear.
The wonderful SunnyDahye gave me the Naked3 palette as a gift and I was more than thrilled. I won't say much because I feel it has all been said. However this is such a useful palette of such high quality that I believe it is worth every penny, I was about to spend on it before Dahye gave it to me.
Oh Revlon Balm, we have had a slow journey to love. I bought this after seeing many raving reviews of the Revlon Balm sticks but I honestly hated it at first. I thought it applied unevenly an didn't feel nice but I think it is the way they are made or something. After a few uses it was like the product changed and became perfectly smooth and comfortable, maybe the end was to dry when I first bought it. Anyhow I now love using this, it is some simple for every day and the color is a perfect neutral.
This purchase was a result of shopping with Dahye. She is in love with the Kardashian products, but I was reluctant. I did love this color though so I bought it. The color is a nice sheer shimmer, has the taste and smell of honey. As for the lip plumping it is more subtle than others, it does not sting like some others I've tried.
The last item is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. If you have seen my makeup buying guide, then you know I am resistant to sponges. This is a favorite because the finish this gives my liquid foundation is fantastic and I don't think this retains anymore product then my face brush. My only fear is that the sponge does not dry fast enough and I worry if is not the most sanitary. I want to do some research on this aspect.
