April 2013 Top 10 Beauty Products

I know, I know I'm a little late in posting my favourites this month but hey better late than never.  I really can't believe that its May already.  I've now been living in Adelaide for over 4 months and in my new job for nearly 3 months.  Crazy how times flies, I still feel so new in this place.

This month I reverted back to my natural brunette hair colour and got rid of the tired red hair.  This meant I got to mix up my makeup more and I've loved wearing brighter colours on my lips, especially pinks.

With no further ado, here's my Top 10:

April 2013 Top 10 Beauty Products

1.  MUA Mega Volume Mascara - this mascara is so cheap and gives amazing volume!  Have been using this one every day
2.  Babylips Color in Pink Lolita - a hydrating lip balm with a dash of pink colour.
3.  The Balm Shady Lady in "Just this once Jamie" - I featured this in last month's favourites posts too but it really is a constant favourite.  This has amazing pigmentation and lasts really well. 
4. elf Complete Coverage Concealer - I found this hiding in the back of my drawer.  I've been using the lighter yellow based colour to hide dark circles under my eyes.  It blends in really easily and applied over foundation and under powder, lasts all day.
5.  David Jones Cream Foundation - I got this in my David Jones Sampler Tote earlier in the year and I've been loving it.  I'll be doing a full review of this soon.
6.  Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in "Darling" - I love love love the formula of these lipstains and this is by far my favourite colour!
7.  Beauty Blender - Totally obsessed with this little pink sponge - Full review here
8. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics - Loose Colour Concentrate in Platonic - I got this from Lipstick Republic and have been using this as a highlight to lighten a smokier eye for day wear.  I love the colour and shimmer of this loose pigment.  Beautiful.

9.  Al'chemy Ylang Ylang Colour Care Shampoo - This is a wonderfully gentle Shampoo that leaves my hair feeling so light and clean without feeling dry. 
10.  Lux Fine Fragrance Body Wash in Secret Bliss - I've been a fan of these Lux Body Washes for awhile but the scent in this particular body wash is divine! It's beautifully hydrating and the scent triggers something in my memory that I can't quite put my finger on.  Not sure if this is a limited edition scent but I'll be buying a couple of bottles of these next time I see them just in case.
