April means crunch time. There are a lot of things I need to accomplish to come out on top this month, so posts will be more sporadic than they have been. Booooo I know. Anyway, if you don’t want to read the whole post, but are Canadian, you might want to scroll to the bottom. The last heads up I will give… :)
I decided to particilate in BeautyThesis’ April Picture a Day (You can check it out HERE).
So, for the first of April, it was to share your favourites from March.
Annabelle Smudgeliner in Rich Chocolate
I am still trying to get through the Smudgeliner stash that Macnunu CP’ed for me a while back…like wow. So I pulled out Rich Chocolate for March, and it was my go to liner. It is rich, just like its name, and generally lasts quite well on my eyes. The smudgers are soft, and combined with the liner, gave me just enough definition on my lower lash line.
La Femme blush in Golden Sunset
Just an FYI, the picture makes it look much lighter. Anyway, I love the La Femme blushes…but I got a few too many. Add to that that the blushes I selected were pretty pigmented to start! I just have to lightly tap the blush with my brush once, and I got enough colour for my cheek. Gives me a pinky-red cheek with just a tiny hint of shimmer.
Loreal Wet Shine in Berry Persistent
I picked this up during SDM BOGO sale (a heads up from Macnunu, SDM has them on sale for $6.99…I’m contemplating buying another one…). Personally I find them a tad sticky, but I love the effect. I dab it on, and blend it with my finger or lip brush, as I find that it looks wonky on me if I use just the applicator. Whenever I wear this, I always get looks, but meh, I like the colour :D
MUFE Aqua Brow in Ash
I had seen this about for a while, but it wasn’t til I saw a post that mentioned that IMATS had it for super cheap due to a special promo they were having. I knew I had to pick it up as well; especially hearing it was water proof. Sweet! I picked mine up at IMATS Toronto 2012, and have enjoyed using it. I only need a little bead of this product to fill in born brows. Because of the formula, it makes for a more natural look than my powders (admittedly I draw them a little sharp…)
Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara
I received this as a consolation prize. Though my mother had used Mary Kay foundations before, I had not tried out the brand. I actually bought shadows off of Ebay before, but never used them more than 3 times. What I liked about this formula was that it wasn’t too wet, which mean it didn’t undo my curling. It didn’t take too long to dry, which meant no transfer to my lid (monolidders here). What I also liked was that it didn’t clump. It gave me enough definition without having to make me look like a spider died on my lashline.
Okay, today is the last chance before I post my giveaway. This will be open to Canadian who have commented before the giveaway is posted tomorrow. Current followers on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook are eligible as well. The giveaway won’t be as big as the one I did in January, but hopefully those who like makeup will enjoy it :)
