April Favourites

April is ending – where is my life going?! Argh, stress stress stress. Thankfully I have these great products in my life to make me forget my woes for now. Ha. My favourite products in April were: Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Ivory (for oily/combination skin). I very rarely try new foundation but I was browsing through products at the store and the shade of this looked quite promising in the bottle and as luck would have it, it’s close to a perfect match on my skin. Now, wouldn’t it be great if we were charged the US rate of $12 for this foundation here instead of $40 so that choosing a “drug store” foundation actually mattered? Korres Tinted Lip Butter in Pomegranate. I love me a tinted lip butter and this one is gorgeous. A subtle shade of rosy red, this is a fruity smelling pot of delicious. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Porcelain Pink. This is one of my shop-my-stash re-discoveries and I’m so glad that I dug it out and can re-live my love for this product. I obsessed over it after seeing Pixiwoo use it in a tutorial once and it’s a beautiful highlighting pink shade with a hint of gold. I like to gild my face as much as the next gal but it can be hard to find gold shades that suit my skin tone. This is pretty much perfect. Original & Mineral Seven Day Miracle Moisture Mask. This is another re-discovery for me, and it’s the hair treatment that I’m currently making my way through for Project 50 Pan. It smells like a caramel milkshake and if I didn’t value my life as much as I do I’d probably drink the whole container. I’ve been using this on the ends of my hair while conditioning with my regular conditioner, as I am too lazy to go and get a trim.

    Lol at drinking the O&M. And whoa! 40 dollars for a drugstore foundation?! Yikes! I think people would laugh the brand out of the store if they tried that here. I remember actually seeing people roll their eyes when they saw the price on the Maybelline Color Tattoos and the Lo’real Infallible eye shadows but quality was too good. Love these picks, the skin-finish is one I really want to buy sometime in the future.

    I hope the stress eases up on you! 😀

    • Yes $40! You can imagine my shock when I checked online to see that it’s only $12 in the US, and our dollar is pretty much on par at the moment. Madness! Good luck hunting down Porcelain Pink, from memory I picked mine up in a blog sale. I think it might be discontinued 🙁
