April 2015 favorites ♡

Hello, hello, hello! How are my precious little ducklings doing today? Insert the baby duck emoji here. It’s May 1st! It feels like April was yesterday. Hehe. Seriously, though, am I the only one who is like, freaking out over how fast time is running? It honestly feels like December/Christmas was like a month ago! I have a month and a half left of high school before I graduate and then I’m off to college. I’m so nervous but excited at the same time.

Anyways, I am back with another lil post and this time, I will be talking about the things that made me go all heart eyes emoji and feel like a fierce bi$$h throughout April! This is going to be a pretty long post so go get some snacks, sit back, relax and let’s get started.

  1. In case you did not notice based on my Easy Makeup For A Day Out or Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour palette review – which you can read by clicking on them – posts, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette has owned my heart since day day I bought it. I love the shades, the pigmentation, the use you can get out of it; everything. This palette retails for $40 and you can get it at Sephora. It is on the pricey side but I believe it is worth every cent you spend on it.
  2. L’Oreal’s Infallible Foundation quickly escalated it’s way up through the charts and although I initially purchased it so I could have a light-coverage foundation to wear to school, I have found myself ditching my beloved MAC and Chanel foundations for this.
  3. The Body Shop’s InstaBlur Face Primer – this thing is amazing. It comes out in a gel-like form and once you put it on your face, it feels like you no longer have a face but a baby’s butt instead. That’s how good this is. It also makes my makeup last all day. Great dupe for Benefit’s Porefessional!
  4. Real Technique’s Miracle Complexion Sponge owns my heart. We only have about three Sephora stores in Mexico and unfortunately, we don’t have one where I live, so I had to dig through the deep dark waters of cosmetics to find a good dupe for the Beauty Blender. And I did! This is amazing and you should definitely try it if you haven’t!


  1. Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Palette is love, Too Faced’s Chocolate Bar Palette is life. I am in love with this palette. Apart from the fact that it smells like heaven, the warm shades in this are pigmented as HECK. I have a post on a quick look I made with this palette and you can read it here.
  2. Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow Primer Potion: I had been using NARS’  eyeshadow primer for the past two years and I wanted to change and try something else, so I bought this. GIRL, lemme tell ya somethin’ – switching primers has been one of the best decisions I’ve made because this is amazing. It makes my eyeshadow look BOMB and I just love it.
  3. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel and Dip Brow Pomade: I stepped up my eyebrow game with these two that I like to call my ‘dynamic duo’ and I walk around looking and feeling like the fiercest bi$$h in the room because of this.



  1. I recently bought Lush’s Dark Angels Face Cleanser/Mask on my trip to Orlando and only used it once a week to pamper myself. Things changed two weeks ago when I got my monthly gift and broke out like a BITCH. Sorry, there was no other way to put it. I was breaking out SO. FREAKING. BAD. and this baby saved my skin. Seriously, try this if you haven’t because it is a lifesaver.



  1. Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo: I am trying to grow out my hair so I changed my routine of washing my hair every night to washing it every two days, and this has been doing the job for me when I feel a little bit gross. It gives my hair SO MUCH volume and leaves it feeling all nice and soft. I love it.
  2. When I do wash my hair though, I use L’Oreal’s EverCréme Shampoo. This bottle of glory is sulphate free, which is great for your hair and it feels amazing when I massage it into my scalp. I just want to wash my hair for hours with this.



  1. Valfre’s 100% Boys Tears iPhone Case – you can buy it here
  2. Sam Smith’s – In The Lonely Hour
  3. Glitter nail polish
  4. Hand sanitiser
