It is Tuesday, but it is also the last day of the month(can’t believe tomorrow is May 1st….and it snowed tonight! ARGH!).I thought I would share some of my favourite products that I have used this past month. And let me stress favourite!!!!!
Some of these are new some are older, but they are all things I am completely loving right now. Not all my favourites are makeup, but also some snack-y type things. Let’s get this started!
I had to do this one first!! I am sure many of you have heard of the Urban Decay Naked palette. It is one of my favourite favourte makeup palette’s. This is the second edition to that and I FINALLY got it! I won’t lie; I may have jumped up and down when it arrived in the mail. But then again, when it comes to mail- I just love getting it 🙂
Some people don’t like this palette as much as the first, but I think I might disagree. I love the natural tones on the left, and the late night smokey colours on the right. I have been using these shadows almost religiously all month, both day and night looks. I also really liked the double ended brush they included. The quality of brush is pretty darn amazing for a palette brush, but then again I shouldn’t expect anything less from Urban Decay. You can get this palette at Sephora.ca for $60 for us Canadian folks. Americans I think get it for $50. Either way, worth every penny.
For those of you that follow me on Instagram won’t be too shocked by these Essie Polishes popping up in this post. I have quickly became a HUGE fan of these. I had seen them on other fellow bloggers sites for some time now, but never wanted to pay the $11.99 for them, till they were on sale. I had no choice but to buy them…..now it has grown into a VERY fast obsession.
The colours above are “in the cab-ana” & “turquoise & caicos”. I was wearing the green one during my Glossybox Unwrapping video. Such a great colour!
This stuff is just HEAVENLY! This is Philosophy’s French Vanilla Bean. The first time I used it my husband came to give me a hug and said I smelled like cookies! Let’s be serious, we all know that is the way to any mans heart….smelling like cookies! Or well, I suppose bacon may also be another way to a mans heart, but I rather not smell like meat LOL. As you can see by how much is gone, I have been using this for a couple months. I don’t like using a luffa(the word alone is just weird, but really lets not go into that), this does cause me to have to use more in the shower however. I may have to invest in one though as this is roughly $21 a bottle!!(SHHHHHhh don’t tell George :p)
My mother in law had given me this tester of Clinque lash doubling mascara a little while ago and I just got around to using it this week…boy was I surprised by it. I usually use Maybelline’s Colossal Mascara, but this one just impressed me as soon as I applied it. My lashes were long and I LOVED the brush. I like bristle brushes. I will have to pick up a full size soon.
Another shocker with this. I was pleasantly impressed with L’oréal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream. I usually use MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid NW13, but this is great just for everyday, no hustle makeup. I had read that people found it gritty on application, which it starts off as, but it smooths out just great after rubbing it in. It has a nice light colour, matched my skin tone pretty good and without making me look more like a ghost(if that is possible). I would recommend this as a reasonably priced BB cream.
I’m pretty picky when it comes to fragrance . I don’t often wear perfume, but would rather go to a body mist for daily or for after the gym. When we go out in the evenings I do enjoy wearing something. This is Chanel’s Chance Eau Tendre. I didn’t think I would like this as much as I do, but I LOVE it. And a little goes the long way. This bottle will last me FOREVER, which is probably good as I believe it’s over $100 a bottle. Lucky for me I was given this as a gift or I doubt I would have picked it up to even smell it. It is very light and fruity, with a touch of grapefruit. Nice and fresh!
Now onto some snacks!
I recently found these at Costco and LOVE them. Just a wonderful quick and simple snack. I have to really watch how much I eat or I will eat that whole container. They call it an “Energy Blend”, it has Edamame, Cranberries, Almonds & Pumpkin Seeds(not sure why they say Kernels, they are seeds).
And last but definitely not least
I also found these at Costco and they must be one of my favourite finds. They are a gluten-free all natural bar. Can’t really go wrong with that. They had three flavours in the box, but this is my favourites 🙂
Tonight was Day 2 for me in the Revolt Fitness program, I will be doing a weekly update on Friday, but let me tell you that so far I love it! Pretty surprised by how much I am loving it. I will go into great detail all on Friday.
Nothing else really exciting over here. Just doing this program and focusing on getting that done. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have a great night.
Question: What were some of you your favourites this month? Have you tried any of mine?
