April 09 favorites!

Clean n Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub:
I'll be doing a video on my skincare routine in a bit but I recently picked this up and it's amazing. The microbeads are fine enough to be gentle but large enough to really get that exfoliating action. I love the feeling that it brings, not the tight tingly feeling but a fresh awake feeling. I always feel clean after using this. I use it about once every couple days. Must have from now on! Plus I picked it up for 2/8, this little baby only cost me four bucks!

Ecotools Mineral Brush set. 5 piece kit.
MUST HAVE. I am going to collect all of Ecotool brushes. I have the 6 piece kit which is amazing. I've lost the liner and the brow brush from that but am so going to go get another set. The mineral set comes with a concealer, baby kabuki brush, a powder brush which I find perfect for blush or loose powder and a blending brush which is worth ten dollars by its self. So getting myself a back up for this kit as well.

Magneteyez by Spell Cosmetics.
First off, I want to say. I was sent this by my wonderful online boyfriend, Gemma. LOL I'm just joking but he really truly is amazing. I hate when I watch a review from gurus who are sent things and never admit to the freebies. We all know those certain few who like to sway their opinions on a product to keep their freebie suppiler happy. I'm not one of them. On to the product, it's a wonderful eye primer. I have used various other primer dupes and have tried UDPP or TFSI in small samples but this is by far the easiest and non stickiest feeling primer I have used. With UDPP and TFSI I felt like the primer made blending harder than it would have been without primer. MagentEyes goes on smooth and clear which makes blending effortless. A must have staple for me with a much more detailed review to come.

Lash Stiletto by Maybelline.
Omg! Perfection in a chic tube! A much much more descriptive review to come. I use this daily and will be stocking up! Maybelline is the QUEEN of Mascaras.

NYX eyeshadow 'Chocolate'
I love this color for a matte neutral brown. Dark enough to have some pop but soft enough to be a perfect day time look.

NYC Loose Powder in Translucent.
The most amazing loose powder ever. I use it daily and will never give this product up, ever. For 2.99 it's the best deal out there! Smoothness and setting in a large circular container. <3
