If you’re not familiar with the Show a Little Lovin’ series, here you may read what it is and why I came up with it. Basically, at the beginning of each month, I go through my makeup stash to select a bunch of products I haven’t been loving as much as they deserve, to use as often as possible for the following 30 days.
Here’s April selection!
MAC Lipstick in Fusion Pink
Wearing MAC Fusion Pink on my lips, Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in My Two Cents on my eyes, and Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in 100 Bare Light on my cheekbones (which you can’t really see!)
If I remember correctly, Fusion Pink was my first MAC lipstick ever, and I haven’t worn it in a very long time! I wonder why, though (well, actually, I do know why… I have too many lipsticks and only one set of lips)… It’s GORGEOUS. It’s an amplified finish, which means it’s crazy pigmented and pretty long-lasting. If you love bold colors and want to grow your MAC collection, this is definitely a good one!
Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in My Two Cents
I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered my Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in My Two Cents. I’ve always liked it, but for some reason I’m loving it so much more than I did in the past. Maybe that’s because I used to build up the color to a very intense copper, while now I tend to wear it as a softer wash, and I like it better this way. I LOVE it this way. I’ve been wearing it all the freaking time since the beginning of the month.
Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in 100 Bare Light
You might already know that I’m not the biggest fan of intense highlighters, not only because I have oily skin, but also because I feel like they give you what Ruth Crilly the other day very eloquently called a ‘Robot Face’ (that woman is one of the most hilarious creatures on this planet!).
But if I dab a couple of drops of Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator in 100 Bare Light on my cheekbones, I just get the prettiest subtle sheen. No robot face, I promise.
Maybelline Color Sensational The Creamy Mattes in Craving Coral
I bought the Maybelline Color Sensational The Creamy Mattes in Craving Coral a few months ago, tested it, and then set it aside in favor of more wintery shades. But now it’s spring, which means I’m wearing t-shirts, I’m eating buckets of gelato, and sporting orange lips on an almost daily basis, so it’s time to give this bad boy the love it deserves. It’s definitely not the most long-lasting matte lipstick I’ve ever tried, but it glides on the lips beautifully and is extremely comfy, so it’s totally worth the touch-ups! 😉
Did you make any interesting rediscoveries recently?
