I know it’s already May (oops), but I honestly don’t know why I haven’t posted a series like this sooner. Now that I’m moving, I’ve come to realize how many beauty products I actually own (here’s a hint: it’s a lot). I’m flirting with hoarding, and things might be getting serious soon.
So, I made a little pact to myself moving forward: I will try and use what I have before buying new stuff. For a beauty junkie like me, this is going to be tough. Walking into Ulta is a trap, and I really don’t think I’ll make it out alive.
But even though my collection is enormous, there were several standouts that knocked my socks of in April. From a bright pink lipstick to light blue nail polish, it’s obvious I’m in full on spring mode.
Freeman’s Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask: This product combines two of my favorite skin care rituals (a clay mask and sugar scrub) into one bottle. It’s ah-mazing.
YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils Mascara: I never thought anything could replace my Maybelline mascara until I was sent this one to try. And to be honest, I didn’t understand why people invested in the high-end, ridiculously expensive, I could buy a shirt with that money, mascaras. Now I know why. This little tube is a lash changer.
Essie Nailpolish in “Find me an Oasis”: I’m all about the light polish colors for spring. This color from Essie is a whiteish blue, and has me dreaming of days at the pool.
Revlon Lipstick in “Sultry Samba”: This lipstick is the perfect hot pink (as seen in the picture above). I’ve been layering it on constantly lately, and love to increase the intensity for nights out.
Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum: I have a naturally red tone to my skin, especially around my cheeks. This daily serum helps to calm and reduce redness — I love it!
