April Favorites

Today, I thought I’d do something a little different from the regular Tuesday Tip & share with you all the things I loved most this month!

I’ve discovered an amazing haircare line in the form of Pureology. I had been loyal to the brand my salon uses for years, but I kept finding my haircare lacking in… something. I have fine hair and decided on a whim one day to try out Pureology’s volume shampoo & conditioner & I’m really glad that I did. It’s paraben free & is formulated for color-treated hair. After using it, my hair is definitely volumized and my blonde looks much blonder. It’s a win win.

I’ve also really been loving my Maybelline Baby Lips, especially in Pink Punch. It’s hydrating and gives a nice tint of color. No fuss, no muss, just the way I like it!

For eyes, there are three standout products. The first is Maybelline the Falsies Mascara, which is ah-mazing. This line gives excellent volume that lasts, but it isn’t too dramatic to wear during the daytime. Next is Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Eyes in Grey 22L. This was actually a loan from my mom, so thanks mom! I love this color because sometimes black can be too harsh and this silvery-grey is just dark enough, while remaining illuminating and brightening. Perfect. My favorite eyeshadow has to be Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Shadow – so easy to apply & such beautiful pastel colors. Lastly is yet another Maybelline product (this post is not sponsored, by the way) – the Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Concealer. The sponge applicator is what gets me with this one. It provides good under eye coverage & really natural application.

Right above the eyes, sit the eyebrows. I’ve never paid any attention to my eyebrows in terms of makeup. I take care of those bad boys when they get a bit unruly and then I leave them be. However, in my last Birchbox, I got a sample of the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel and I must say, I like it a lot. I like that it’s clear, so it is 100% foolproof and it really just puts every last stray-roaming hair into place.

The tiny little (adorable) bottle you see there is my sample of the new Dolce fragrance. I love this scent so much, plus the gorgeous packaging doesn’t hurt. It is described as containing the scent of a mix of white flowers including Neroli and White Amaryllis. It is definitely on the sweet side of perfumes, but it is just so nice and feminine. I think this is the perfect spring/summer scent & I will certainly be keeping the bottle when I run out.

Last, but definitely not least, is my new favorite jacket of ever! I got this puppy from Forever21 and if you like it, you’d better hot foot it because it’s on sale! I seriously cannot recommend this jacket enough. It has enough warmth for chillier spring/summer evenings, but it’s also so breathable thanks to the knit sleeves.  I actually bought this because of an upcoming Eurotrip Zach & I are doing, for which I wanted a jacket that would be easy to travel with, but still keep me warm enough at night. If you aren’t convinced yet, the other day I put this on over leggings and a light grey sweater and said “this may be the most comfortable outfit I’ve ever worn.” And so my airplane outfit was born!
