April Favorites!

 I'm a little late I supposed with my favorites but I think I have some good ones to share! I have been obsessed with three of these things and I use all of them daily! 

COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence -

I've been all into the 10 Step Korean Beauty regimes. One of the steps is essence. The idea is that this serum type product helps all of the layers soak in better. Honestly I wasn't so sure at first by I was suffering from really dry skin and just managing it. Since adding my Essence (and ampule) I haven't had any dry patches. I've added this in after cleansing and in addition to the other creams/oils used. I am amazed at how soft my skin feels.

 IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Cream

I didn't like this at first. It is a cream but almost a gel. It is thick and thin at the same time. At first it annoyed me but I spent so much on it I was determined to use it up and the more I use it the more I like it. It really is a nice base for under eye concealer and it is very hydrating. I've used about 1/4 of it and I've had it a long time. A little goes a long way and I really like that. I use it day and night. I think this is a great hydrating eye cream

Marula Pure Marula Oil -

I received this in a Boxycharm subscription box some time ago. I was using my Jurilique oil but I'm almost out so I decided to add this in at night so that I wouldn't quit that one cold turkey and start this one - hoping to not have any sensitivity. Well, I shouldn't have worried because Marula oil is great for sensitive skin and soothing. It makes my skin feel amazing! So hydrating and soothing. I will be buying marula oil in the future. Not sure if I'll buy this brand because it is pricey - I'll probably try the one from The Ordinary because it is under $20 but if I find that one isn't as good I'll go back to this one for sure. If you haven't added a face oil - try marula. It is skin changing to add an oil and this is the best I've tried.

ELF Flawless Finish Foundation -

I get mine at Target. I think I might have had this as a favorite but even if I did it is okay to mention it again. It is a fantastic foundation. I love that it has a pump and it gives a nice look to my skin. I reach for it over my more expensive foundations all the time.

Carmex - Classic Lip Balm Medicated

I was trying out some new liquid lipsticks and frankly they are not for me. Just too drying. My poor lips were so dry and chapped from wearing them that I had to go all out and grab some old fashion Carmex. This stuff is the bomb. It works like no other when you really need so serious healing on your lips. It does have a slightly medicated smell but I kinda dig it.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipsticks 

First off the marbled packaging of these lipsticks are beautiful. Then they have a tons of neutral/nude shades from true nudes all the way to pinky nudes. I LOVE this formula. It is matte looking but creamy and comfortable on the lips. It last pretty long because of that too. I bought one then went back a week later and bought a second shade and I want at least one more. That is saying a lot because I mostly wear cheap drugstore lipsticks!

Becca Highlight Opal

My cousin was wearing this on Easter and she glowed. Not in an artificial way but she looked healthy and amazing. So naturally I asked her what she was wearing for foundation but she told me the 'glow' was this Becca highlight. I had to have it but highlights are funny for me, especially being so pale. Sephora had a smaller travel size and so I bought it. Guess what? I LOVE it. It just gives that healthy summery glow.
