I decided to start doing a monthly favourites video after a lovely viewer requested I start one! So here is my video and post for the month of April/May!
Beauty Blender in “Original”
Description from Website:
The world’s first edgeless, non-disposable, high-definition cosmetic sponge applicator. The unique shape and exclusive material available only with beautyblender® ensures impeccable, streak-free application with minimum product waste. Use it with primers, foundations, powders, cream blushes, and any other complexion product.
At beautyblender® we choose to use safe, water-soluble dyes that do not harm the environment and will maintain the integrity of our proprietary foam.
This is all over the internet and everybody is raving about it! Whether you’re a makeup artist or a newbie in makeup, this helps you achieve the most flawless professional looking finish! All you have to remember is use it damp (run it under water and squeeze out the excess water!) then tap it on to your skin and blend! Its as easy as it sounds and this has replaced all my foundation brushes! I know, I can’t believe it myself! Because I can use it wet, I wash it very often (also good for hygiene) and feel like its less stressful than always having a clean brush on hand. Works great for other liquid/cream products like your contouring creams! I use this daily and I am definitely going to purchase the pro one which is in black because I am having trouble keeping this clean and pink and I think the black one is more forgiving!

Description from website:
A true multitasking miracle that hydrates, primes, illuminates, and perfects leaving a sheer bare skin finish. Specialized mineral pigments that instantly adjust to your skin shade allows one color to work for many.
I think this is a fantastic primer. It really does make foundation application very even and I love the natural finish it gives. Even my most matte foundations look really blended and smooth on my face. If you like a heavy, extremely matte coverage than definitely stick to your regular mattifying primer because this does give you more of a dewy finish. Good thing is even on my oily skin it doesn’t make me greasy, as long as I use a suitable foundation! I really enjoy that this primer doesn’t make my foundation look cakey and it really does make it last longer and apply smoothly!

Description from Website:
The creamy long-wear formula glides on easily with its doe foot applicator, finishing to a velvety matte look with intense, full coverage colour payoff.
Blue based Hot Pink
I think these are an absolute steal and amazing that they are all vegan shades! woo hoo. I love liquid lipsticks, I think they are so easy to apply and I dont even need the help of a lip liner to create the perfect shades. These are matte, super bold, and super fun! Love them! They are very long wearing but make sure you take your favorite shade with you when you go out because you might need to reapply it after a big meal! A little bit of eating and drinking is just fine of course! This is not kiss proof so it does transfer onto your straw or the cheek of someone you have the hots! They have a huge color range so you got everything from nudes, pinks to the burgundy!
