Monthly Favourites - April
April is over and this year is totally flying by! I hope you all had a lovely Easter, I myself enjoyed simply lazing about reading and writing and lying in the sun! Almost all of my favourites for this month are new additions to my collection and I am so thrilled that I have some new things to play with! If there isn't a review on my blog already there will definitely be one coming up soon!
Lips: This was the most unexpected favourite of all, simply because I didn't even know these existed until I was in Priceline and saw the Covergirl Smoochies Lip Balm in the shade 'Luv u' for only $3. I had no idea what colour to pick up so I went for a nice Berry looking shade and I have worn it every single day since purchasing it because it is just so natural and flattering. I am a huge fan!
Face: I rediscovered an old favourite of mine, the Maybelline Superstay foundation. Somehow I have gained a little bit of a tan so it matches my skin almost perfectly, and as a result I've been using this more often. It is a medium to full coverage foundation so I don't wear it everyday, but I just love the gorgeous finish it gives.
Eyes: Without a doubt the eye product I have been reaching for most this month is the Loreal Colour Infalliable Shadow in Tender Caramel. I managed to grab this little bargain for $2.10 at Target and it was the best buy because it is such a beautiful brown shade. I cannot recommend this enough!
Nails: I have two nail favourites this month, the first being an Essie mini polish in Meet me at sunset. I have adored this bright orange shade and I am so lucky to have won it in Erin's giveaway! The other polish I have enjoyed wearing is the Essence topper in Black Dress and White tie. I don't always give into special effect polishes but this was irresistible (and for obvious reason too!).
Other: Lastly is the other category, and this month I have decided to include not a product but a hobby I have really enjoyed. I've been struggling a bit lately and have found writing (whether it be poetry, blog posts or journalling) to be so very helpful and enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone because it really helps sort your thoughts out!
I hope you've all had a lovely April!

The Eleventhgorgeous girls always rave about the CG Smoochies, I've never thought to look at them though! I might if I ever see them on sale like you did! My sister owns the Superstay foundation, and whenever I do her makeup (often, haha) I am pretty impressed with it!ReplyDelete

I was so surprised that a product I'd never even glanced at turned out to be a favourite. It's quite strange! The Superstay foundation is brilliant, I am so glad I rediscovered it. xDelete
I think I went through 2 bottles of the SuperStay foundation a few years back, pretty good stuff! Oh bring back those nice warm, sunny days!ReplyDelete

I just love the gorgeous satin type finish it gives! xDelete
OOOO...I totally want to try that foundation and I'd love to have that l'oreal shadow! We have only 8 shades here! It's so sad!ReplyDelete
It's one of the more expensive 'drugstore' foundations but so worth it! I only stumbled across the loreal shadow because it was on sale for $2.10! How amazing is that?! xDelete
Great favourites! I have to check out the Smoochies lip balm as I've never heard of it before!ReplyDelete
Thanks :) I would totally recommend it, especially as they are so cheap xDelete
That smoochies definitely looks like a very 'Candice' shade! I recently got that Essence nail topper too, it looks so cool, can't wait to try it.ReplyDelete
I own the superstay in that exact shade you have, but it's way too dark for me. Maybe I should give it to you! Haha :) What a deal you score with Tender Caramel, that shade is gorgeous!

Haha, you know me too well! :) I would love to hear your thoughts on the topper, it's just so cool! Such a shame that the foundation is too dark for you - although I will admit when I'm at my lightest after winter it is too dark. xDelete
Btw what camera do you use? xReplyDelete
This is going to sound silly but I don't know - every now and again I am able to take home a camera from my Dad's work (to borrow) and I go crazy snapping photos because it's such a good quality, expensive one. I'm really sorry that I don't know the name :( xDelete
I used to love the maybelline superstay foundation. I might want to grab one again.ReplyDelete
It's so great, I've been wearing it for all my special occasions/nights out! xDelete
Oh I used the Superstay religiously for years! Very good foundation! And I definitely agree about writing - it sorts your thoughts out so well. Hope you're good, Candice!ReplyDelete
Thanks for your kind words :) xDelete
I do like the Smoochies! Good pick!ReplyDelete
Thanks lovely xDelete
I love L'Oreal Tender Caramel, I definitely don't pull it out enough. Also need to grab Black Dress White Tie.ReplyDelete
It's so darn beautiful and the texture is absolutely magical! xDelete
Lovely products!! You have a fantastic blog! <3ReplyDelete

Thanks for your comment xDelete
Tender Caramel for $2.10 - what a bargain! Especially considering those Infallible eyeshadows retail for $19.95. I bought mine also on sale a while ago, but it was $10. I do think it's pretty but it's a tad too shimmery/frosty for my liking. It's a gorgeous colour underneath all that frost though :)ReplyDelete
I was so thrilled, Target have some amazing bargains. It is a little frosty but like you said, the shade is just too good to pass up. xDelete
WOW! Love the Essence black and white topper :) I really have to get one of those loreal eyeshadows, every man and his dog seems to rave about them!!!ReplyDelete
I personally hadn't taken an interest in the Loreal shadows until I saw it on sale. I can now tell you they are as incredible as everyone makes them out to be! xDelete
