Favorite April Beauty Products

*Hello Beautiful PL's*

This is officially my first monthly favorites! YEAH! I am so excited to share with you what I have been using over and over throughout the month of April. First, I must say the month of April went by very quick. I need time to sloooowww down. (Lol) Before we know it the month of June will be here and it will be summer.

I have been loving drugstore beauty products lately. I feel like some are better than high end beauty products. I also tried new products in the month of April. Some new products I fell in love with and others I  regretted. First, let me state that I have combination skin so some products may differ on oily or dry skin. :)

My first favorite beauty product is the Maybelline Matte/Poreless Foundation. I am in the shade 228 Soft Tan.  When applied with a face primer this foundation goes on flawlessly. If not used with a primer it will look dry in areas. I love how it dries and sets in place. The only downside is that the line does not have a large variety of shades. This will be a perfect foundation for Spring and Summer.

My second favorite beauty product is the Maybelline Fit Powder Foundation. I am in the shade 240 Golden Beige. The powders are a little off when it comes to color. They do not match the foundation color. I use the powder foundation as a under eye setting powder. It sets the concealer very well and does not crease. I do not recommend to use as an all over face powder foundation because it is not full coverage. 
My third favorite beauty products are the Milani eye shadows: Bella Copper and Bella Champagne. The first color is a metallic shadow and it is BEAUTIFUL. It looks so beautiful on top of dark colors and worn alone. The second shade is a shimmer shadow that I love to wear in the corner of my eye. I have also worn it alone with just a brown shadow and it looks so effortless on the lids. 

My fourth favorite is the L.A. Colors 3D Blush Contour palette in Love Bird. Is such a great bang for your buck for only $2.99, it is not chalky and does not cake on the face. I came across this amazing palette while shopping online. I love the contour and blush shade in this palette. The highlight looks great on the brow bone and below the cheek bone contour. I would not use this to bake your highlight.

The E.L.F. Makeup Mist & Set is great to use to freshen up your face and neck. I love to use the mist when I am running errands and get a little moist around my nose. Use the mist as an adhesive on your makeup brush before applying foil or metallic eye shadow to help the product stick to your skin.

I have two lip products that I used over and over throughout the month of April. They are Nyx Matte Lipstick in Butter and Nyx Xtreme Shine Lip Cream in Nude Peach Fuzz. I loved wearing them alone with a lip pencil and together. Combined they made a perfect nude lip.

In the month of April I loved two nail polish shades that I already owned. I bought so many nail polishes to try but I kept coming back to E.L.F. Nude and Ruby Kisses Sweet Thing (worn in picture above. I love when I find highly pigmented cheap nail polishes. The Nude color is so perfect to wear with every outfit and Sweet Things is the perfect bright pink color.
