I feel like April FLEW by! We all know how this works every month – I show you my top favorite beauty, fashion, food, music & more! Let’s jump right in!
Olay Fresh Effects Cleanser & Moisturizer – I received an amazing package from Olay with their new Fresh Effects line and was so excited to try them out. I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY. I have been using the exfoliating cleanser and moisturizer every single day and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I have such a hard time finding a great face moisturizer for my dry skin and I can finally say I have found my holy grail product! I have a few other items from the line that I will be sharing with you soon!
Lush Cosmetics Dream Cream – Another fabulous product from Lush! I love using this after the shower. It leaves my skin super soft and smells amazing! Definitely a favorite from Lush!
Simple Eye Makeup Remover Pads – Brand new to the Simple skincare line and absolutely fantastic! I have always been a fan of Simple and their products. (Their makeup wipes are my holy grail) These new eye makeup remover pads get the job done and FAST. I only need to use one for each eye and all of my eye makeup is completely gone. Really awesome!
Wet n Wild Coverall Foundation – This foundation is no joke. I had heard rave reviews about it on Youtube and finally purchased it to see what all of the hype was about. I seriously cannot believe how full coverage this baby is! It didn’t break me out which is a plus and lasted all day! I bought mine in light / medium which is still kind of dark for me, so I would recommend going a shade down.
Benefit Fake Up Concealer (Light) – The most amazing concealer Benefit has put out to date. What I love most about this is it has a “moisture ring” around the concealer portion that really hydrates your under eye and conceals your dark circles. It’s made with Vitamin E & apple seed and is proven to keep your skin hydrated for up to six hours. It’s so smooth and creamy and very easy to work with. I love the lipstick tube applicator!
How nasty does mine look right now? Haha. That just shows you how much I have been loving this!
Benefit Coralista Blush – A warm coral pink blush that is absolutely divine for Spring & Summer. Benefit boxed powders are hands down some of the BEST blushes ever. Their packaging is to die for and the quality and pigmentation is out of this world.
NYX Love In Rio Palette (Bikini Bottom) – A perfect go to palette if you literally have 5 minutes to get ready. These three neutral shades can create an amazing eye look with the limited time a mommy has to get ready! NYX has easily become my favorite drugstore brand – I love how affordable and great their quality is!
Sally Hansen ColorFast Tint & Moisture Balm in Happy Berry – I was a bit weary when I found out Sally Hansen came out with a bunch of these jumbo lip balms. There are SO many out there right now! I was sent quite a few of these to test out and oh my gosh – By far the BEST ones I have tried! They have so much more pigmentation than a lot of the other ones I have had experience with and the smell.. ohhh my goodness the smell. It smells like vanilla cupcakes. I believe there are 10 or 12 in the line and I plan on getting every single shade!
Benefit Laugh With Me Lee Lee – I was browsing the Benefit section in Ulta a few weeks ago and these cute little martini shaker bottles caught my eye. I don’t know why I have never seen or smelt them before but I was totally intrigued. Lee Lee was the first one I picked up to give a whiff and I just about died right there in Ulta. I don’t even know how to describe this scent, but it’s freaking fantastic. It has a citrus / clean / woodsy scent. I know that makes no sense, but trust me. Next time you’re in Ulta, give it a shot!
Tweezerman Tweezers & Chevron Unbreakable Mirror – Tweezerman just released some fun vibrant fresh prints for Spring and they are SO stinkin cute! I have also been loving their new unbreakable mirrors in Chevron print! Yes, I said unbreakable and I put it to the test. My adorable 2 yr old son had it in his hand and dropped it on the hardwood floor and it is still it one piece. I love that the mirror is slim and easily fits into a side pocket in your handbag.
Waffle Weave Makeup Bag – Makeup bags are an addiction for me. I don’t know why I need a thousand.. I just do! I had found a 20% off code for shopglitzyglam.com (Elle & Blair Fowler’s store) and decided to create a new one! They just released this gorgeous teal color and I couldn’t resist adding a black & white chevron bow. They are so durable and affordable. Definitely check it out!
Eleventh Gorgeous Shout out! – My absolute favorite beauty guru’s on Youtube, 11th Gorgeous recently gave little old me a shout out in their Ulta drugstore haul! Go check out the video, subscribe & comment on it saying “Love For Lacquer sent me! – GGYS!” – Shout out begins around the 7:38 mark 😉 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liFsX1YLBiU&feature=em-uploademail
And of course – My Rita Hazan win! I was named Next Top Beauty Blogger and I couldn’t have done it without the support of all of YOU! My mom & I will be on our way to NYC next weekend to get the celebrity treatment with some of the BEST hair stylists & nail technicians ever! Thank you x a million!!!
