Top Ten April Favorites

Hi there! Welcome to BeautyRhodie! I'm super excited because this is technically my first Official blog post! Yay, lol! I thought since today is the last day in April it would be appropriate to do a Top Ten Favorites for this month. These are some of the things I have been loving and have been gravitating to this month. They'll be listed in no particular order, btw. So without further adieu, I give you my Top Ten April Favorites! 


This is a great everyday eye shadow palette that has the versatility to turn your day look into a night look. It has beautiful shades that vary from matte to satin to glitter. ($36) Available at Too Faced CosmeticsUlta, Sephora, and wherever Too Faced is sold.


I have naturally "healthy" (aka Thick) eyebrows, so I don't have to use much of this little guy. It does help fill in the uneven or sparse areas. It has a wax, a powder, and a tiny applicator. I prefer to use my own brow brush just to save some time. I use the shade Medium, but there are 4 to choose from. ($3) Available at E.L.F.


This is such a beautiful blush! This one is in the shade Brunette. It is such a glowy, peachy-pink shade that is so pretty for spring and summer, IMO. You can skip highlighting with this one. There is also a pink one in the shade Blonde.'s okay to use the Blonde one if you're a Brunette, and vice-verse, lol. ($11 approx.) Available at UltaWalmart, and wherever Physicians Formula is sold.


This is a recent addition to my collection, and it has quickly become one of my favorite lipsticks...ever.
It's one of MAC's Frost finish lipsticks, but it's so Not frosty! They named it well, as it can give an angelic finish to anyone's look. Love, Love, Love it! ($16) Available at MAC Cosmetics


This next product is a favorite in general. These L'oreal shadows are more like pressed pigments, are super soft, and come in a great variety of colors. I love this one because its so very Spring! Don't you think? This is in the shade Burst Into Bloom ($8 approx.) Available at UltaWalmart, and wherever L'oreal is sold.


This one, I just had to share with you! This is a new addition to E.L.F's cosmetic line, and can be used as a base or alone as a cream shadow. It's available in 9 shades, this one is called Poppin' Party! ($2)  ELF


I received this in my Ipsy Bag about a month (or 2) ago, but hadn't used it until recently because I had another mascara I was working on. My coworker Tiffany (and many others) had rave reviews on this product, so i figured if it was THAT good... it would be worth the wait, lol. It was, It is, It will be!! OMG, my teary, sensitive eyes thank thee, Michelle Phan! If your eyes are like mine, I Definitely recommend it! ($16) Available at EM Cosmetics (IF you are interested in Ipsy's Monthly $10 subscription, here's the link: Ipsy  )


I love Urban Decay, and I love that they came out with these Naked double ended pencils. They're great for on the go use or just to slip in any of your Naked palettes. This is the Naked Basics, and it has Venus (a Shimmery Cream) on one end and Crave (a Matte Brown) on the other. For me, the star of this duo is Venus. If you apply it to your waterline, it makes your eyes look wider and more awake. A little goes a long way. I like it, I like it alot. ($16) Available at Urban DecayUlta, and wherever Urban Decay is sold. 


This concealer is creamy, long lasting (if you set it), and affordable. It's great for blemishes, discoloration, and the under-eye area. There is minor creasing, which is great because I love to laugh....A LOT! I have it in the shade 20 Sand, which blends right in with my skin tone. ($7 approx.) Available at UltaWalmart, and wherever Maybelline is sold.


I honestly kept going back and forth on whether to try this or not. It had received very mixed reviews, but once I saw swatches of this online I decided I only need one. This one....Liar. Its a mauve, soft pink that can go with many looks. The formula is very smooth, moisturizing, and not sticky at all. It has a slight hint of a mint taste on the lips, but I didn't detect any scent. It claims to have Vitamin E, Avocado Oil, Rose hip seed Oil, and Hyaluronic Filling Spheres to hydrate and condition your lips. It definitely makes your lips look full, healthy, and glossy!

This concludes my Top Ten April Favorites! Thank you for stopping by and checking out my faves for this month of April. What were some of your favorite products? Please share, I'd love to know!
