For April, I have been loving new makeup products and here they are:

Maybelline Color Sensational So Nude NU33s and NU36s

I have been rocking shimmery eye shadows + flushed cheeks + nude lips everyday to work in April. These two lipsticks from Maybelline are heaven sent. They are the perfect nude, hydrating and long lasting. I just need to touch up once and I am good to go.
NU33s is a orange toned nude and NU36s is a corally pink toned nude. I loves them both equally. Sometimes I layered NYX lip gloss in Natural on top for added dewiness and sheen.

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation in Medium Beige

I already mentioned this foundation in my last monthly favourite, but I just thought I mentioned this again as I have been using this foundation so much. 🙂 This is a full coverage, long wear foundation that I have been loving especially this as my skin is not at its best. The coverage is perfect to cover up blemishes and hyper pigmentation and yet still feels light on skin.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar in Amaretto, Haute Chocolate and Hazelnut.

As I like pairing shimmery eye shadows with nude lips this month, these are the beautiful shades that I gravitated a lot. I just love how these fine, soft shimmery powder just glides on my lids. They are not to sparkly. Instead, there is a shimmery hue that brightens the eyes, perfect for work/everyday. I love to use only one shade swept across the entire eye lids, thin layer of eye liner and tones of mascara. (Choice of mascara: Of course it’s The Rocket!)

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12H Blush in Exposed

20140507-134558.jpg

I have been wearing this so much in April! Read REVIEW HERE!

The pigmentation is divine, You need a light hand and it gives my cheeks this beautiful warm pinky nude flush. I like this for work as it contains no shimmer at all. Hence, balancing my (obsessed) one shade shimmery eyes. If I am longing for a brighter cheek colour I would go for….. (read below)

Clinique Berry Pop Blush

I have been alternating between this and Tarte’s Exposed this month. I usually go for this for a (Berry) Pop of colour on my cheek. Thank you Li yeun (she blog @engagedwithbeauty) for giving me this cute, fun-filled blush. Every girl would fall in love with the gorgeous acrylic packaging and cute Daisy imprint. This is a baked blush, so I need to work my brush a little more just to get that beautiful pinky blush, but once it is set, it will last. It still looks good after 6 hours (with the right foundation). I also love how this shade (Berry Pop) complements my skin tone.

Full review will be up in blog soon. Stay tuned!

Random favourite: H&M Running Pouch (pink)

20140507-133146.jpg

My random favourite of this month would be my H&M running pouch. I have started running early of this year and so far am glad that I can run 5KM with ease. I usually use the RunKeeper app to help my training so I find using running pouch greatly help to hold my iPhone. I bought this pouch during H&M sale so it costed only RM30ish. It is cute and tiny, has two zippers. One small compartment that can (justly) fit my iPhone 5 and tiny compartment to fit a key. It also has a hole for earphone.

At the back there is ventilation fabric and two inch wide strap with velcro. I like to wear this during my run as it is so small and light. I usually place my pouch on the small of my back so it does not interfere with my movement. As it is placed at the centre, it felt well balanced unlike arm strap or if I placed my iPhone in my pocket I also like the looks professional yet cute at the same time.

Thanks for stopping by. Do share with me what is/are your beauty favourites for April this year down in the comment below.
