hey guys what's up I'm back with another favorites video and I'm just gonna share a handful of products that I've really been loving and using all month long for the month of April I just realized today it was the first of May and I was like oh I got to film this favorites video now because I just have been so busy with school lately I got accepted into the psych program I really wanted I've just been really excited about that I'm trying to stay focused on like all my deadlines I have coming up and just getting things ready like just in prep to start this new program and I'm really excited about it so thank you to those of you who gave me some really kind words and encouragement it means a lot to me because school is something that is really important for me and it's something that I've always wanted to do for myself I just wanted to say that real quick thank you guys so much and shout out to all my students out there we got this I am so proud of all of you who are out there continuously pushing the boundaries and just keeping it moving with your studies thank you guys for all of the kind words so anyway okay let's switch gears into makeup okay I have a couple of exciting products and it's not much it's just a handful to be honest with you guys because like I said in my empties video for April I've really been studying and focusing hard on my work for school so I just haven't been wearing a lot of makeup so I kind of have more skincare stuff well it's just you'll see it's not that much but anyway the first thing I have is this little skin care oil I bought this back in February so it's been a couple of months I'm towards the end of the bottle now but I still have enough probably to last me through May this is the good molecule squalane oil or squalene oil I'm not exactly sure how to say it I'm new to using this product this is a plant derived oil and it's supposed to keep the hydration in your skin it's like kind of to work as a barrier good molecules is a brand that was created by Beauty lish and if you guys have ever shopped with Beauty lish before they sell different brands they have all kinds of makeup tools stuff like that they created their own skincare line and it's really affordable and everything I've tried so far I like I prefer to use this during the day because it is very lightweight I have use it at night before too but I just feel like because of how quickly it absorbs into the skin is just perfect to wear make up it's perfect to wear out the door doesn't matter if I whatever I'm wearing that day makeup or not light makeup day heavy makeup day I just use this no matter what as my my moisture for the day time it is perfect for that and for reference I do have dry skin and this is great for me you can use it daytime or nighttime I just prefer to use it during the day since it's pretty lightweight and it looks so beautiful it just kind of gives you a skin like that doing this youthful kind of glow it looks like you woke up like that kind of thing so I love it and it's meant for all skin types like I said fragrance reads are very gentle and I definitely will be repurchasing this as soon as I run out because I love it so much and they also have a daily hydration oil I think but that's like an oil blend I kind of want to try that one next because I heard good things about that too so far so good everything I've tried from good molecules I really like another amazing skin care product for me has been this one from CeraVe it's a body lotion it's their itch relief moisturizing lotion I bought this I want to say the beginning of the month maybe a little bit before April but I've almost used up the whole bottle I've used this every single day of this month and I'm gonna use it till I run out it works so well for my eczema it's not prescription it's just over-the-counter and it is really great if you have itchy Nassif like dry flaky skin this does help kind of counter that a little bit I mean it's not gonna take your eczema off or anything nothing really takes it away but this just kind of helps relieve the symptoms of it it helps take out a little bit of that redness and that irritated look I had a huge breakout like all my arms just from stress sometimes I get like like stress kind of reaction when it comes to my eczema if you guys have it you know how it can be to the point where like sometimes it's almost painfully itchy that's what I had and this really helped a lot and I feel like this is going to replace my Aveeno which is kind of a big deal because I've been using that like my whole life but I actually think that this helps relieve the itchiness and the painfulness more and aside from the anti itch factor of it I do feel like it provides a nice amount of and moisture to my skin I like the way that it's not sticky it doesn't feel too heavy it's not like an emollient too greasy type of lotion it's just the perfect everyday body lotion I put this on after I take a shower or before bed or whatever and I'm good for the whole day so I enjoy that about this product I do feel like it's worth it and if specially if you guys have any sort of like dry flaky skin or eczema stuff like that stuff like I have I think you'll really like this so I had to share that because it's been a solid solid game changer for me I really enjoyed this right now don't judge me you guys I just used it this morning but this is my Real Techniques makeup sponge I recently got back into using this and it's $6 I got it at Target this thing is so good I forgot how nice it was I remember buying one of these like years ago and I don't know my mind probably got old or ripped up or chewed by the cat or something but I totally forgot how good this tool is I just kind of rediscovered this and fell back in love with it because it's so multi-purpose it's so cost effective like this is the bomb I forgot how good it is I really loved it to blend my makeup and just kind of get more of an even look more of a just like seamless type of look and you can do it quickly with the flat edge and then this side I like to use for concealer like under my eyes or I even use it for highlighter like I like to use the middle part from my cream highlight just blend it in like two seconds you're good to go it's six bucks sometimes even less expensive at Ulta has sales on Real Techniques I think they might be having a buy one get one half right now I'm gonna go check but I love this thing you guys I just it made me like excited to use my cream products again and just to like play with makeup so I had to share it how to talk about it speaking of rediscovered favorites I recently got back into this and it was because of watching a video that Emily Noelle recently did she did like iconic makeup from the drugstore something along the lines of that I might have got the title wrong but that video just made me want to go back out and try this again it's from Maybelline it's their instant age rewind dark circle eraser and I have the shade fair I don't remember them making this shade I remember like the brightener one and the light one but I didn't realize they have one like this and it matches me really well I'm wearing this underneath my eyes today and let me tell you guys I have had dark circles lately I just really needed some help in that department so I think that this was a perfect time in my life to rediscover this product and I got the shade fair I went for fair because I remember light being to oranjee on me and then bright the brightener shade the pink one is just like it just didn't look right it looked kind of unnatural and a little bit harsh on me underneath my eyes anyway so I think that fair is just right on the money it's great for the under eye because it does cover dark circles but also it's a couple shades lighter than my face so I feel like it does also add a little bit of that brightening effect to it and I just like the consistency the texture is so thin it doesn't feel like you have on a lot of concealer or like a lot of makeup on and I've even been using this to just spot conceal and on my light makeup days it is just so nice like it's not just an under-eye concealer honestly I wear this anywhere that I want to cover up something and it just does that without having to really put a lot of work and effort into it so this has been the bomb I'm so glad I got back into it thank you so much to Emily because it's really good and I got another drugstore gem now this is a new product to me I don't think it's a brand new product but recently I had to go to CVS and I needed to fill a prescription so while I was waiting you know I hit the makeup Isle like you know that's all I did the 30 minutes went by like that I was just I was so content looking at all the makeup walking up and down those aisles while I was there I came across this huge end cap of LA girl and they had those concealers the ones that everyone uses but they also had a ton of other products that I have never seen before or that I just never realized were there so I found this blush it's called just blushing and the shade is just playful it looks really Plain Jane in the packaging but honestly these are the colors that end up looking at the best on my skintone I have to go for these kinds of like muted shades I love like muted Pink's or like rosy tones those are my ish for real I love these kinds of colors so I got just playful it was hard to tell in the store light what one would look good on me but I thought let me google it real quick and I saw all these swatches playful was the one I was like oh yes I gotta get that so that's what I did I googled it and I was like okay let me get this shade and here's what it looks like I have this just playful that's all I have on my cheeks for color today and the formula itself is just a simple classic powder blush it's easy to put on it doesn't have any issues blending because it's a little bit on the softer side but I do enjoy this I think it's an incredible drugstore deal if you guys have la girl at your CVS check out these blushes they are so so worth it and last but not least here I have a great new powder that I've been loving to set my makeup and I am NOT a huge powder person let me just start off by saying that my skin is dry so I tie you aliy don't even wear powder or if I do it's just like a light dusting so I used this very lightly I don't use this like all over my face I don't bake with it or anything like that but this is the milk makeup blur and set powder and I recently did a photo shoot with milk makeup they had a contest going on Instagram and I was one of the people that won the contest I was like what the heck and it was such a cool experience I had a great time down there and we just did like promo shots and stuff for some of their new products coming out when I went to the studio they asked me hey can you show up without any makeup because we want to do it and we're gonna do like certain colors and we have a look in mind and I felt so naked I felt so strange walking into a makeup studio without makeup on like it was just it was so funny but anyway they did my skin the makeup artists on set there really did a great job at making my skin look like skin but a little bit more perfected I felt like my skin looked very smoothed out it didn't have a powder enos to it and the way that they applied it was really interesting the makeup artist he used the sponge that it came with and he just kind of dipped it into the powder and then pressed it onto wherever he put the concealer we didn't even use it on the whole face because the foundation is Matt already itself but this powder does contain high rolana acid in it and it does kind of give your skin a little bit of a filtered effect all right guys well there you have it that's it for my April favorites I pretty much just have a little handful of things that were exciting to me this month that I felt like we're worth talking about and I ended up really using throughout this month so I can't wait to talk to you guys again I hope to see you soon in my next video
