Hello my lovely cupcakes!
Today I have my monthly favourites post for you.
Even though my makeup has been pretty simple and neutral the past couple weeks, I've discovered a lot of new items I embedded into my daily routine.
So, without further ado, let's got to my April Favourites!
Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation
I got this in a haul a while back and I've been using it almost everyday since my purchase. Even though people have been raving about this foundation for years I always hesitated getting it because I'm usually not a big fan of full coverage foundation, they just feel too heavy and cakey on my face. But the Laura Mercier one is simply perfect for me even though it is full coverage.
I blends flawlessly, doesn't feel heavy at all and I don't need to powder or blot my T-Zone the entire day. Definitely a new holy grail foundation for me.
Full review will be up soon.
Catrice Absolute NUDE Eyeshadow Palette
I spontaneously picked this palette up whilst shopping for some necessities a few weeks ago. The concept reminded me of the UD Naked palettes and since Catrice products are not too expensive, I decided to give it a try.
The colours are really nicely pigmented and easy to blend. I only wish that there would be a couple matte shades in the palette since all the shadows are quite shimmery.
MAC Lipstick in Cut a Caper
This lipstick is limited edition but it was already re-released a couple times so you might own it yourself even though it is super popular. I pulled it out of my drawer again for spring and summer because the colour is a bright peachy coral and I don't tend to wear shades like this during fall and winter.
Cut a Caper has a Lustre finish which is my favourite type in MAC lipsticks because they're sheer and easy to wear on a daily basis and do not dry out the lips at all.
Benefit Bella Bamba Box'o'Powder
I've mentioned the Bella Bamba blush in my Shop my Stash post because I neglected it for so long even though the color is just so lovely.
It's a perfect watermelon pink with slight shimmer that goes with any eyelook and gives fo cheeks a healthy flush with a radiant glow. Definitely a thumbs up!
Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara
Apart from the Maybelline Rocket Volume, no mascara has really wowed my in the past couple of month until I discovered the Max Factor Clump Defy. It's exactly the same as the Covergirl Clump Crusher just a different name and packaging.
Since I have straight and short lashes I need lots of volume and length but I don't want my mascara to clump and make my lashes look like spider legs. Therefore, Clump Defy is perfect for me since I can literally pile it on like crazy without ending up with a clumpy mess. Definitely a repurchase for me.
Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo
I've been using the Miracle Moist Shampoo in the past already and have really like it because it made my hair super smooth, healthy and shiny and the smell was just divine. Unfortunately, the brand Aussie itself wasn't readily available in Germany just until the past month and paying the shipping costs from the UK all the time was too much of a fuss for a shampoo.
But since the brand has finally launched in Germany as well, I'm so excited to be able to use this awesome shampoo again. If you haven't tried anything from Aussie yet, make sure to do so, they have some amazing products.
