Standout beauty products of April 2016
Another month has flown by–along with all of my money LOL– and it’s time to talk about the amazing new beauty goodies that have become a part of my ever growing collection that have quickly become favorites of mine.


Since I’ve already talked about the products I picked up during the Sephora VIB sale, I won’t bore you guys by talking about them again. Just know that I love everything I picked up and don’t regret picking up 500 new glow-inducing products because gimme that Jenny from the Block glow I desperately crave.


ELF Illuminating Powder Palette

ELF Illuminating Powder Palette

ELF Illuminating Powder Palette. So this product was enabled by Paula— all you beauty bloggers are ALWAYS enabling me!– but I’m not mad. At all. The powders in this palette are so soft and are great finishing powders. They’re slightly illuminating, but I wouldn’t say they’re highlighters.


NYX HD Banana Finishing Powder

NYX HD Banana Finishing Powder

NYX HD Banana Finishing Powder. I love using yellow toned finishing powders under the eyes because it adds brightness. This finishing powder is so soft and adds just the right pale yellow tone so it’s brightening, but not too crazy intense. It sets concealer so nicely and isn’t powdery or chalky at all.


NYX Liquid Illuminator. Are you sick of me and my highlighter infatuation yet? These liquid illuminators are so amazing, and I love that they’re inexpensive as well. If you want a liquid illuminator, but don’t want to shell out a lot of money, or even if price isn’t a factor and you love da glow, get one of these! I have Sunbeam, which is pink toned, and just picked up Gleam, which is golden/bronze– perfect for spring/summer.
Standout Products April 2016. Dior Addict Fluid Stick 449 Ciel Rose and Dior Lip Maximizer

Standout Products April 2016. Dior Addict Fluid Stick 449 Ciel Rose and Dior Lip Maximizer


Dior Addict Lip Maximizer. I wish I had poutier, juicier lips, but since I don’t you can find me trying to fake it with lip plumper. This doesn’t make your lips super plump, but it does make a slight difference. It contains hyaluronic filling spheres to make your lips smoother and more contoured. I will say it leaves my lips feeling softer, more hydrated, and looking smoother so love this stuff!


Dior Addict Fluid Stick. I was totally enabled by Claire because she did a Dior makeup look featuring a Dior Addict Fluid Stick. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the shade she had, but I had to have one so I picked up 449 Ciel Rose. The formula is creamy, smooth, opaque, and it has a beautiful shine. A luxurious lippie indeed.

  • I really want that illuminating palette! I have a blush palette by e.l.f. which is great, but haven’t seen that one yet!

    xo, Liz

    • I haven’t tried the blush palette, but did pick up this one and the bronzing one :)

  • Aww thank you for mentioning me hun, I feel terrible because I think my shade is quite possibly discontinued, though the formula is gorgeous and this shade looks similar. I may have to go swatch that NYX Highlighter, I’m seriously in love with that brand right now!

    • I saw it on after I ordered this one on lol! I love the shade you picked up. And yes, the NYX highlighters are so good!! I love NYX as well :)

  • I can’t find that ELF palette at Target, they are always sold out every time I go :(

  • Those ELF palettes always catch my eye. I love that your favorites are a mix of high end and drugstore, that makes me happy and keeps your page relatable!!

    • Thanks :). I picked up the bronzing palette as well, but have yet to really test it out.

  • The ELF palette looks awesome, I used to buy a lot of ELF products when the brand was slightly cheaper, definitely need to pop back on their website and check their new things out.

    • They have become more expensive, but I think their products have also gotten better :). I’ve been on an ELF loving spree lately haha. I hope you pick up some goodies!

  • I want all the NYX!! I wish I could get some local to me :( BOO!

    • Aww boo!! You can’t order online? Though, ordering online can be annoying sometimes.

  • I have to get my hands on that NYX banana powder! I really like using yellow-toned powders under my eyes, too and I also love pretty much everything I try from NYX :D Happy to hear that you’re liking the elf palette! :D
