Jennifer’s April Favorites


1. Maybelline Colorsensational The Elixir in 01 Celestial Coral- This lip gloss has hit holy grail status.  It is the perfect rose lip color for every day. It smells divine, and it is highly pigmented.  It is not sticky, which I cannot stand stick lip glosses.  I highly recommend this lip gloss for light to medium skin types. 

2. It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette-  The perfect array of matte eyeshadows.  I am not usually a matte shadow kind of girl, but these have definitely made me see matte shadows in a different light. Matte eyeshadows tend to be harder to blend, but not this palette.  The colors are highly pigmented, smooth, creamy and so easy to blend out.

3. Kat Von D Everlasting Face Shaper Blush in Por Vida- The most beautiful rose/coral blush ever.  It is so pigmented and lasts the entire day.  I am always on the run and was truly amazed how long this blush lasted on my cheeks.

4. Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara in 301 Black- The best drugstore mascara in the market, hands down.  It is the blackest black mascara I have ever encountered and separates and adds volume to your lashes.  It is not clumpy at all and does not have any fall out.

5. NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in Light- This is a dupe for Mac’s Pro longwear Concealer without the hefty price.  It is approximately $4.99 in Ulta and Bed Bath & Beyond.  It covers my black circles and any pimple scarring on my face.  What I love about this concealer is the fact that it does not dry my under eye area and does not settle into my fine lines. I hate when concealers dry your under eye area and make your fine lines apparent.

6. Milani Eyeshadow Primer- Wowzers! I am so excited that I finally found a cheaper alternative to the Lorac Pro Shadow Primer.  I was on the hunt to find a good drugstore eyeshadow primer and finally found it.  This primer makes your eyeshadows adhere to the skin. It not does not budge, fade and your shadows will not crease.

7. Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light/Medium- I love to wear this BB Cream on the weekends or lazy days.  It is a sheer coverage BB cream, but I love it since I do not suffer from any acne prone skin, which requires high coverage.

8. The Body Shop Bronzing Powder in 02 Fair Matte- One of my favorite matte bronzers, and it looks so natural on the face without looking too muddy.  It adds a hint of warmth to the face, which I can appreciate.
