April Favorites

 Hello Readers!
This month as been okay when it comes to makeup. I don't have that many 'new' favorites, other than three products that are from Birchbox, but I did really love them. I do have some non-beauty favorites as well. : ) 

Beauty Favorites 

Its a 10 Miracle leave-in plus Keratin Conditioner 
I received this leave-in conditioner in a birchbox and it is the best one I have ever used. Although it is expensive, its just beyond fab. I apply it on damp hair, all over, and then brush it in. It makes my hair amazingly soft and if I go to bed right after applying it, I wake up with not only soft hair, but hair that is not frizzy, and when straightened, looks amazing. I highly recommend buying the smaller size just to see, as the full size is rather expensive.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel 
I received this brow gel in my birchbox and I love it. Its clear, but doesn't leave any sort of obvious product on my brows. It keeps my brows in place and I have that it keeps my brows looking good, as I need them to since I wear glasses.

Cargo Blush Los Cabos 
I also received this product in my birchbox, and its a gorgeous, bright coral blush color. Its shimmery but absolutely beautiful and I like to apply a little amount with an angled brush along my cheekbones and apples of my cheeks and then I blend it all in. Its gorgeous and provides the perfect summer color to my cheeks.

Wet 'n' Wild Coloricon "Reserve your Cabana" highlighter 
This is actually more of a highlighter for my fair skin and is super gorgeous. Its not as shimmery as the very popular Mary-Lou Manizer by theBalm, but it is very gorgeous.

Forever 21 Makeup Brush
 This is the brush I love to apply my highlighter with as its very soft and doesn't hold a lot of product, therefore allowing a very light hand. This is also really great for very pigmented blush. Its available in multiple designs at Forever 21 and is very inexpensive which is fantastic. :)

Mac Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe
This eyeshadow is the best shimmery eyeshadow ever because it can be applied all over the lip, in the crease, and below the lower lashes and looks absolutely amazing. Its sort of a taupe and a purple color and makes my brown eyes pop from behind my glasses which is always nice.

Non-Beauty Favorites 

TV Shows:

Orphan Black

Season 3 came back on April 18th and it is still amazing! I love the diversity in the characters and Tatiana Maslany's talent is just beyond amazing. I don't want to give too much away but if you did not know, its a show about clones, particularly one named Sarah Manning who, in season one, finds out she's a clone, and so season one was sort of about her, and these clones and why they are clones. Season two was more about the company behind the creation of the clones and Season three is more about that, with some new elements and new characters added. Its an amazing show, and I highly recommend it. : )

This show is available on netflix, and after seeing so much of it on tumblr, I looked into it and decided to watch it. I'm only four episodes in as each episode is about an hour long, but I am really loving it. Its about a blind lawyer named Matt Murdock who lives in Hell's Kitchen, New York, and he fights crime, or anyone whose disrupting his city at night. Its really really good so far and I highly recommend it.

*Both these shows mentioned are for mature audiences.*

Music: Marina and the Diamonds Froot 

This album came out in March and for the past month, I have been listening to it non-stop. I love all the songs, its Marina's third album and I love it as much as I love her other two. There's something about her music, it just always means something to me.

My favorite songs on her new album are Froot, Can't Pin Me Down, Savages, Immortal, Blue, Better than That, I'm a Ruin, and Solitaire.

 Movie: Kingsman: The Secret Service

This movie was so good! Colin Firth-oh my god! I was really impressed with this movie. It had action and humor, and was really well written and directed. The actors were all amazing and the whole thing with Eggsy and the pug was really adorable! : )
