April Favourites {monthly series}

May is here and the weather in Toronto does not represent Spring time at all, grey days with rain. But, beauty products always put a smile on my face and here are my April beauty favourites:
Marc Jacobs DAISY- the roll-on version is so practical for travel! A sweet, fresh scent that's perfect for Spring/Summer.
CoverFX Natural FX Water-Based Foundation SPF15 in shade M30-great colour match for me. A natural looking foundation that gives a dewy look to skin without looking oily. Very concentrated therefore a pea-size amount is all you need. Best applied with a foundation brush, and for a sheer look use a damp brush. Light-medium coverage, honestly the coverage all depends on how you layer this foundation. Very versatile! I do find that a finishing powder works best with this foundation.
Yves Rocher Culture BIO LipBalm-a basic lipbalm but packed with hydrating ingredients. Natural, moisturized lips with a bit of sheen.
Sally Hansen INSTA-DRY Fast Dry Nail Colour in shade Peachy Breeze- total impulse buy & worth it! This nail polish is thick and drys quick. Gorgeous shade for Summer, got alot of compliments.
Cheeky Monkey Cosmetics Nail Polish in shade Tease-milky lilac/grey, really fun pastel shade for Spring/Summer.
StokoVitan Care Cream for Dry/Very Dry Skin-no clue where to buy this as the boyfriend gave it to me. Says the Air Force pilots use it so must be good & it is. All my co-workers loved it! Very thick cream & a little goes along way. Moisturizing without the greasy feel.
Live Clean {Exotic Shine} Bali Oil Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner-pure vegan, SLS/Sulfate-free and paraben-free hair care products. The shampoo suds nicely for a sulfate-free shampoo, hair feels nicely clean and fresh. While the conditioner moisturized without adding too much oil. Affordable too! Smells like pina colada.
What were your April favourites?


  1. i've heard such AMAZING things about the coverfx foundation! i must give it a try :).

  2. I've heard good things about that foundation too, but I've got so many, I really can't justify it, haha.
