April Favorites!

Hi Bellas,

It's that time again, time for monthly favorites!  I've got a nice list for you, sold old and some new.  This time I focus on makeup, storage and brushes.  Check it out!


Check out the video!

PixiGlow Highlighter - It takes a little bit of work, but the color is amazing as a tear duct and browbone highlight.  This looks great on tan skin with its gold tone.  You have to tap the product into the skin in order to blend it without it disappearing.  The applicator could be improved but I don't hate it. 
Hakuhodo Blush Brush - This is the best blush brush I've ever had.  The bristles are cut perfectly, super soft, and perfect amount of denseness.  The size of the bristles applies blush perfectly.
210 Blush Brush round
Lori Grenier Deluxe Makeup Storage Box - This organizer is a huge part of my personal makeup routine.  It's made such a difference - now that I can see my makeup, I use a lot more of it more often.  Best yet, it looks great and I stay organized.  No more scrambling to put makeup away when I have guests, it looks like decoration on its own. 

The Balm NudeTude Palette - This is one of my favorite neutral/nude palettes - I like it even more than the UD Naked Palette.  I think the color choices are better.  The colors are also super pigmented, apply amazing and the palette is compact.   The only thing missing a matte browbone shade.

CoverFX cream foundation - I got my hands on this recently.  I've tried it before in their Big Cover Kit, but this time I received the full size.  I fell in love with it again.  It looks great on the skin, has great coverage, is easy to apply, and there are a lot of shades. 

Afterglow Cosmetics mineral foundation - I'm usually not a big fan of loose mineral makeup but I found myself picking this up again.  I've had it for a while and wanted a setting powder that would darken my too-light foundation a bit.  I found that this offered great coverage, applied super smooth, and wasn't cakey.  the shade is spot on, looks great on the skin.

Not So Favorites
Actually nothing really comes to mind right now.  It was a good month!

Have you tried any of these products?  Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
