Lovin' Lately

With this month being my birthday month and also the month of the Sephora VIB sale, there are a lot of things I've been trying. And I've been loving everything. So I was worried that if I saved all the products I loved till the end of the month for my April Favorites, it could probably qualify as my first novel. I decided to divide these favorites in half and today talk about some things I've been loving since the end of March.

Sunday Riley Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream* (review) | I completely raved about this cream in my recent review. It does exactly what it says on the tin - brightens the skin. It leaves my skin feeling plumped and as soft as velvet, especially when layered over the Luna oil. Since using it I've noticed a nice improvement in my skin's texture and tone - everything is just a bit more even.

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Deep Moisture BalmThe other moisturizer I've been obsessed with comes from the Kiehl's Ultra Facial family. It's a super rich and thick cream that's been perfect for my dry and dehydrated skin. I've been using a tiny scoop of this spread over my face as the last step of my evening skincare routine to lock everything in. By morning, I'm left with super hydrated skin.

Glossier Generation G & Stretch Concealer (review) | At this point, I'm totally convinced that Glossier can do no wrong. The Stretch Concealer has pretty much already reached holy grail status for me, as much as I hate that phrase. It's so creamy and keeps its dewy finish so it goes perfectly with the rest of the look I'm always going for in my skin. It's equally lovely on undereye circles and spots, and because it's so creamy it doesn't get hung up on any dry patches. The Generation G Matte Lipstick is one of the most unique products I've ever tried - it glides on like a balm but is matte and looks like a stain. I've got the shade Like, which is a really pretty pink color for everyday, and Jam, which looks like your lips have been stained by red wine or a grape popsicle or something.

Wander Beauty Exquisite Eye Liquid ShadowThis is another product I've been reaching for almost every morning. I have the shade Bronze and it's absolutely perfect for everyday. It's super quick and easy to apply as well, and over a primer it lasts all day long. I've got my eye on the Dove Grey shade next.

Lune+Aster Moonrise Glow & Contour Bronzing Palette* | I was very kindly sent this beautiful palette from Bluemercury at the end of last month, and I haven't been able to go a day without using it since. The powders are so creamy and finely milled, and the shades are perfect. It really reminds me of the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow in that you get a hybrid bronzing/contour shade and a soft golden highlight. I can definitely see myself hitting pan on this eventually.

Jouer Longwear Lip Creme Liquid Lipsticks (review) | As you know, I haven't been able to get enough liquid lipsticks lately. I've been reaching for the four shades of the Jouer Lip Cremes I've got as often as I can. They really are some of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks I've tried. And they really hit it out of the park with the neutrals.
