April Favorites!

My first favorite is my Urban Decay Ammo Palette. This isn't by any means new to me, and you can tell by how beat up it looks! But I adore it. It has awesome colors. You can do a neutral look, day looks, night looks, bright ones. This palette is def. one of my favorites by them. If you have used UD you know their shadows are superrrrrr shimmery. The only problem I ever have with the palettes is the fall out, but i've just learned to do my eye make up first with it, and foundation later when it comes to these. If you haven't tried UD, I suggest you do! The color pay off is great and they have amazing pigmentation. I will have a post up soon with swatches, and a FOTD with it:) This palette is one of their less expensive ones, and you can get it for 38.00 which is a great price for 10 of their shadows.

Also by UD is the De Slick setting spray. Not full sized, obviously. This was a gift with purchase. This size is usually about 10$ though. You put it on before you do your make up and after as well. It's getting HOT, and this is around the time when I get really, really oily. So I tried this just in time. When its out I will for sure by the full size. It kept my oil completley controlled. I did not look shiny ONE BIT. It is a good make up setter! It keeps everything in place.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in "Dollface"
This is my first blush my Tarte. I currently use their foundation, and have tried tons of stuff by them and i've never been disappointed yet. I just think this color is so pretty and perfect for spring. It doesn't have warm or cool tones to it, which I love. It's completely neutral and will look flattering on ALL skin shades. It is advertized as you are supposed to be able to wear it for 12 hours straight and it look fresh still. THAT I don't know about. Don't get me wrong, the pigmentation is fine, it's very good. But i've worn it for 8 hours, and I would say around the time I took it off it looked like it faded a little. But i'm okay with it. I don't mind re applying it because it is so pretty. It's a light, baby pink color. Here is a swatch-

I can't remember the exact price but I think they run for about 25.00, maybe 28.00 and I WOULD buy another.

Keeping with the pink theme! I have been reaching for my Revlon Lip Butter in "Sweet Tart."

I'm not going to rant to much about these, there are so so many reviews. I was thinking about making a post and swatching the ones I have and reviewing them, but i'm not sure if I will. There is so many already! But I LOVE these. They are perfect for people who hate lipstick but want to add color to their lips. They are creamy, make your lips soft, and for a lip butter have crazy pigmentation. I find they last a good while too, maybe about 5 hours? I always get compliments wearing this.

They are about 7 bucks! Such a steal.

Benefit boxed power in "Georgia Peach"

This product is discontinued, which sucks. But i'm glad I got it when I did. You could find it online i'm sure and for much cheaper. A lot of people think this is a BLUSH though and it is not. So when I seen horrible reviews for it I couldn't understand it. And it's because people think it's a blush. It's a face powder. And it smells really good ^_^ But i've been using it as a highlight and I love, love it. Really simple and light peachy gold color, very subtle, but totally build-able if you want it to be not as subtle.

Boscia Balancing Facial Toner

I only have one skincare product this month as a favorite. My skincare routine is pretty much the same, for months at a time. I don't change it often. But I have never used a toner before. I received this free to review. It retails for 24.00. I love it! It calms my skin down A LOT. My skin is ultra sensitive, so i'm always nervous using new products. But this didn't irritate it at all. It got rid of some of my redness, and it is a really good for hydrating. It has a lot of product in there, so I like that. You can't tell in the picture but the toner itself is a light pink color. It is also good at getting any dirt or yucky stuff out of your skin that your cleanser didn't get. I bought this with me on a car ride from Texas to Florida, and in the car my skin actually gets dry. So I would just spray this, and it fixed me right up. I even had make up on, and it didn't ruin it. Really refreshing!

Urban Decay 24-7 Glide on Pencil in Demolition

I have recently switched from black to brown eyeliner for my water line. It doesn't look as harsh! It is water proof, smudge proof, and doesn't budge through out the day. Very long lasting.

Laura Gellar Spackle Under Make Up Primer in "Bronze"
25-30.00(I can't remember!)

Sorry, about the lighting! It was so dang bright in my house. It is a bronzey make-up primer, you can wear alone or under make up. I started using this a few weeks ago, and I am loving it. If you have light skin, don't be afraid to use this. It's not dark at all, but does give you a gorgeous glow. It doesn't feel nasty like those silicone feeling primers, this feels like a moisturizer. It is perfect for smoothing out your skin to prep it for foundation. If I am feeling lazy and don't want to wear make up, I usually just put this on to add some warmth to my skin and even it up a bit.

Studio Gear Stippling Brush

This brush was ridiculously expensive. But well worth it. Not a fan of ALL SG brushes, but this one was a keeper for me. It's very soft, and dense, which I like, and gives me a good coverage, and hasn't shed once yet.

Thanks for reading:) What were your favorites this month?

Gorgeous products! I've heard really good things about the UD setting spray, I'm curious to see if it'd work on me as I do tend to get oily in my T-zone during the day. I wish Tarte was available here, their blushes are always raved about :) Sweet Tart is one of my favourite Lip Butter shades, it's a pink that doesn't make my lips look purple lol. And that Benefit powder looks so pretty, though I probably would've mistaken it for a blush as well :p
