April Favorites

Leave a Comment
Hi everyone! I have my favorite products from the month of April for you today. This month, I have really needed makeup that I can do quickly that looks polished even when I'm in a hurry. Most of these products are on the high end side, but these are the products that I have been using consistently.



Dior Rosy Glow Blush - I really need to do a full post on this blush. It gives such a beautiful pink glow to the cheeks and brightens up the face. This is one of my favorite blushes in my collection.

Estee Lauder Idealist Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher - I think this is meant to be used as a serum, but I use it as a primer. This is full of antioxidants and has some silicones that help decrease the look of pores. I really like using this on my nose and any other areas that have larger pores. A little goes a long way, so it has lasted a long time. I still have a lot left!

Eye Combo Favorite:


Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Get Figgy - I think this shade might be discontinued because I cannot find it anywhere online! (Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk might be a little similar, but it's definitely more vibrant.) That's a shame because this is one of my favorite cream eyeshadow shades. I love to use this as a base blended into the crease. The formula of the Benefit Creaseless Cream shadows is outstanding. It really is creaseless, and this has not even started to dry out in the container.

MAC Extra Dimension Eye Shadow SMOKY MAUVE - Unfortunately, the only place I could find this shade was on Amazon for way too much money. I did purchase this at a Cosmetics Company Store, so you can probably still find it there. Smoky Mauve is a beautiful cool toned mauve. I like to apply it on the lid over the Get Figgy cream shadow for the perfect combination.




Chanel Glossimer in 131 Mica - Mica is a light pink gloss with a lot of fine shimmer. It looks pretty on its own or over a lipstick, and it works well with any color lipstick. Mica is one of those gloss shades that always works. 

Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer in Ivory - I've had quite a few breakouts this month, and this concealer does a great job in covering them up. It is expensive, but it really works for me. It has excellent coverage and doesn't wear off throughout the day.

Those were my favorite products for the month of April! I'm so sorry that some of these products are discontinued. Don't you just hate it when companies do that! Do you have a product that you love that's discontinued? Let me know in the comments! I love hearing from you!

What's In My XOVoxBox & Adore Me Review

Leave a Comment
Hello everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start. I was lucky enough to receive one of the large VoxBoxes from Influenster a little while ago. I have received a couple of the smaller boxes before, but this one is by far the largest. In addition to the contents of this box, I was lucky enough to try a free month of Adore Me, so I will give a quick Adore Me review at the end. Let's take a look inside the XOVoxBox!



Tide+Febreeze pods - These are in the Botanical Rain scent. I really like using these to wash my gym clothes because the scent will linger on your clothes for days. 

Skinfix Hand Repair Cream - This is my new favorite hand cream. It has colloidal oatmeal as the active ingredient, and I am convinced that this makes all the difference. It no longer feels like winter where I live, so I am saving what I have left for next winter. This is a fantastic product, and I am grateful to Influenster for introducing me to it.

Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen & Optic White Express White toothpaste - My teeth are so sensitive that I cannot use any of the whitening strips. I've tried multiple times, but they make my teeth hurt. These brush on gels are much easier on my teeth.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Frizz-Immunity Shampoo, Conditioner, and Primer - I've used a lot of the Frizz Ease line over the years. It does a nice job of smoothing out fizzy hair. The primer was new to me, and I like it. It's a styling cream that you use on wet hair, and it is extremely effective. A little goes a long way!

Adore Me - As part of the XOVoxBox, I got the chance to receive a free set of lingerie from Adore Me lingerie. Adore Me is a lingerie subscription service. Right now, you can get your first set for $39.95. If you sign up for their VIP membership, you get every 6th set for free. Like most subscription services, you do get a credit for any referrals. You can also skip months and cancel your subscription at any time. The best thing about Adore Me is the variety of sizes available. They offer smaller sizes and plus sizes. Being a person that has trouble finding bras in my size, I really appreciate that. Adore Me also offers sleepwear, swimwear, and corsets. 

I did cancel my subscription rather quickly because I am happy with my collection as it is. I do think that this service would be great for someone that has recently changed sizes or anyone looking to build a collection, and it would also be wonderful for someone who has just gotten engaged. 

That is everything that I received from Influenster as part of this campaign. Have you tried anything that I got in this box? 

-xoxo Lauren
