April Beauty Must Haves

  1. Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter– Growing up I had like 30 chapsticks at once, now in my mid-20s, not much has changed except for the brands I hoard. This Lip Butter was a great addition to my obsession collection. It smells like summer and is very moisturizing. It keeps my lips hydrated for hours and leaves my lips looking healthier. ($18)

 

  1. Hype Nail Polish – An all natural nail polish brand from my very own hometown. What won me over with these polishes was the color vibrancy. They go on colorful and stay nice and shiny for about 9 days, which is great for a non gel polish. ($8 each)

 

  1. Tartan &Twine Travel Bags – When I travel I take a ridiculous amount of makeup and about 80% of my skincare routine products with me and I like it all to be organized. These makeup bags have helped me do just that. They come with multiple compartments to store whatever you need and they fit SO MUCH. I took this with me to New York and I swear it was so perfect. They also come in the cutest prints and have a hook so you can hook it behind a door! ($30)

 

  1. DCL Detoxifying Clay Mask – Raise your hand if you are a mask junkie as I am! ::raises hand:: This mask is awesome! It is dermatologist approved and helps clear the gunk out of your pores. After using twice a week for a month I noticed my pores looked tighter and I had reduced my blackheads. It also helps to stop breakouts whenever I get a really bad one. ($50)

 

  1. Algenist REVEAL Luminating Drops– This is my first experience with drops and it was a good one. This is more of an illuminating then correcting formula. It has anti-aging properties which is a great bonus. I use it two ways: first being mixing it into my foundation for an overall glow & secondly as a highlighter in specific areas I wanted a little extra shimmer. I like that this is subtle yet makes my skin look healthy.  ($38)

 

  1. Batiste Dry Shampoo – If you know me personally, you know that my hair is 80% dry shampoo all the time. Being a redhead it helps me avoid washing my color out on a weekly basis, so I’ve tried a ton of shampoos. This one is by far a favorite! It leaves white residue but comes out fast and smells great. It leaves my hair oil free and restores the volume. Plus, for the price it’s a major deal. ($6)

 

  1. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick – Like masks, I am also obsessed with matte liquid lipsticks. I stumbled across this brand while browsing Sephora and I now want to buy every color known to man. The formula is soft and doesn’t dry your lips out. It goes on super easy and with great color, plus does not move or fade no matter how much you drink or eat. I love it even more than the Stila ones. ($20)

 

  1. AOA Scrubby Facial Cleansing Pad– This little face scrubbing tool is only ONE DOLLAR and it’s awesome! I use it to gently exfoliate my skin in the morning. It’s made from a silicone material that’s soft and east on your skin. I also stick it in my overnight bag when I travel when I can’t take my Clarisonic with me to make sure my skin is still being exfoliated. For a $1, this is a must buy. ($1)

 

  1. Instant Perfection Peel Pads– I use one of these bad boys right before my makeup to smooth my skin and close pores to help give my skin a perfect canvas for makeup. They gently exfoliate my skin with daily use and help my skin give a more even texture. ($49)

 

  1. Anastasia Brow Gel Clear – If you are a fellow make up obsessed woman, I feel like you already know that anything Anastasia is AMAZING. This brow gel has become a staple in my makeup bag, I use it alone on days where I’m not wearing much makeup to keep my brows tamed and then on days I fill in my brows I use it to set them in place. ($22)
