April Favorites 2013

Alas, April is over! We are now going into May, which means it's time for another monthly favorites :).

1. Cake Beauty Ultra-Nourishing Hand Cream (Coconut & Cream): I received this in my April Topbox and I have to say, this is my holy grail hand cream. It smells like pina coladas, absorbs very quickly, doesn't feel sticky, and leaves my hands feeling very soft. Big thumbs up!

2. Escada - Cherry in the Air: Perfect perfume for spring time! Fresh, light, fruity, and sweet. I have a full review here for more details.

3. Illamasqua Speckled Nail Polish in 'Fragile': My new favorite nail polish of all time! It's just sooo beautiful and unique, I can't get enough of it! I reeaally wanted the pink shade as well ('Sparce') but everywhere I went, it was sold out :'(.

4. Smashbox Halo Long Wear Blush in 'In Bloom': I've been using this blush almost every day this past month. I'm obsessed with this color; it's just the perfect pink and lasts all day. Full review and swatches here.

5. Michael Todd True Organics - Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub: Another product I received from Topbox which I have been using all month. This is probably the best facial scrub I have ever used. It's not too gentle, but at the same time not too harsh on the skin. My skin has been a lot clearer thanks to this!

6. First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Cream: A very standard moisturizer for dry skin which I have been enjoying. Leaves my face hydrated and super soft. I wouldn't quite say it's a holy grail moisturizer, but it's definitely not bad. Great for those with sensitive skin.

7. Clarins Rouge Eclat Lipstick in 'Pink Berry'
: Normally, I can never pull off any berry-toned lipsticks, but I finally found an exception! This lipstick is a beautiful berry red, great for those days when you don't want a really bold red lip and are in the mood for something more subtle and everyday. Clarins have the best formulas when it comes to lipsticks in my opinion. This one is super pigmented, has a slight sheen, leaves a nice stain on the lips, and doesn't highlight any dry patches.

This month has gone by very quickly and I can't wait to see what May has in store for us!

What have your favorites been this month? :)
