April Favorites 2012

I know there aren't a lot, but I have been trying to be good about buying makeup products since I am going on vacation in 2 days :)

  • Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation in Rose Ivory- I have been wanting to try this forever so when I ran out of my MUFE HD foundation I figured I would give this a try and it is amazing. It covers so well and lasts forever on my skin.
  • MAC Blush in Pink Tea- This is a wonderful pale pink blush. It gives such a nice natural flush to the cheeks
  • MAC Lipstick in Watch me Simmer- In love. It is the perfect shade for spring and summer and I plan on wearing it a lot in Vegas. I just wish I could have gotten a backup.
  • Stila Smudgestick in Stingray- I went to Ulta to find a new black liner for my waterline since lately mine had been smudging a lot and ending up on my cheeks pretty much. I fell in love with this the first time I tried it. It is creamy and lasts a long time and is super black.

My Spring//Summer beauty wishlist!

I have spent the past few days scouring the internet and youtube trying to find new (or new to me) products that I can't wait to try this spring and summer. I am trying to save some money, so I might do a no buy for a short period of time, but I want to wait til June or so for that. Here is what I really want to try this spring and summer:

  • Inglot eye shadows- I am going to Las Vegas in 2 weeks and I can't wait to build my own eye shadow palette. I have heard how super pigmented and soft the shadows are so it is going to be a good in vestment. Also the price on them is so reasonable that I can't pass it up. 
  • YSL Lip sticks- This is a product that I have heard the most amazing reviews about. I just want at least one, hopefully in a my lips but better color.
  • Make Up Forever Aqua Creams- I love the Benefit creaseless cream shadows and I want to do a comparison between the two. I do like that there are some options for lips and cheeks and the color range seems to be a little bit better than the Benefit ones.
  • Too Faced Perfect Lips- I have never really been a fan of lip liner, but if I could find the perfect one I think I could be sold on them. Since this is marketed as the only lip liner you will ever need I figure it's my best bet to try it first.
I know there isn't a lot on here, but since most of them are higher end I feel that if I focus on these I will be able to do better reviews and not be overwhelmed. I can't wait for my first review of these which will definitely be of the Inglot shadows.

My favorite drugstore mascaras!

I love mascara. It is the one thing I always have to wear no matter what. I have extremely light lashes, but they are very long so I love volumizing black mascaras. I just feel that they make my eyes pop.

 This is the newest addition to my collection and my newest obsession. It has a huge brush so it coats all my lashes so well. I absolutely love how long a curl lasts with this and how the mascara wears throughout the day.

Maybelline is one of my favorite brands and this mascara is a big reason why. I love the curved brush and the bristles get into ever corner of my eyes to give great coverage on my lashes. It lasts all day and is the blackest mascara I have ever used.
This is my all time favorite mascara. The brush is big but super simple. The base of my lashes looks super thick when I use this mascara. It is waterproof too so it holds a curl really well and lasts the whole day. I absolutely love this mascara more than any other one.

10 Nail Polish Picks for Spring and Summer

I love nail polish, so I dug through my collection to choose my go to spring shades for my fingers and toes. I find that most of the shades I will wear in the spring also carry over to summer so these are the polishes from my current collection that I look forward to wearing.

OPI - Fly (Nicki Minaj Collection)
This is a beautiful teal blue color that is perfect for spring. I have worn it so many times already.

 ESSIE- Navigate Her (Spring 2012 Collection)
Pistachio green is very popular for the spring and this creme finish polish is perfect. It is very pastel and a looks great on my nails.

China Glaze-Reggae to Riches
I love this shade of purple. It has a beautiful blue duo chrome in it. This is my favorite color to wear on my toes right now.
 ESSIE- To Buy or not to Buy (Spring 2012 Collection)
This is a great pastel purple, but there is something special about it. This polish may look like a creme finish, but it has blue sparkles in it.
 China Glaze- Fast Track (the Hunger Games Collection)
I am wearing this right now and will be until I get sick of it. It is a great tan color with the most beautiful glittery shimmer in it. I am obsessed with this color.
 Sinful Colors- 24/7
This is a neon pink that is going to be great on the toes when I go to the beach.
 China Glaze- Ahoy
I love this pink polish. It has glitter in it, but not too much to be overwhelming.
 O.P.I.- Did it on 'Em (Nicki Minaj Collection)
Best neon green ever. I am obsessed with this color although my friends hate it. I love love love it.
 Sinful Colors- Boogie Nights
This polish is a gorgeous coral color and right now I seem to have a problem that involves buying any coral makeup I see.
ESSIE- Meet me at Sunset
Tangerine is the color of the year, so I joined the club on that one. I love this color so much and can't wait to wear it constantly this spring and summer.
