April Hits & MIsses

5:00 AM

When April ended I was shocked because it went SO FAST and it seems like no time passed at all since my last (and first) Hits & Misses video! I will definitely have to get used to keeping track of the products I've been trying each month so I feel more prepared next time. ^_^;;;

This month I have a lot of skincare goodies that I love so that will be nice for the people who have been asking for an updated skincare routine. I may have to record an actual skincare routine update soon because it has changed a little bit for the Spring weather. Anyway, I go over that more in the video.

Products mentioned:
Cargo Blu-ray HD powder in shade 20
Revlon CustomEyes Palette in 10 Sweet Innocence
Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum
Josie Maran Argan Oil
Melliesh Lipgloss in 01 Strawberry Milk
Ann Taylor Exotic Perfect Skinny Belt in Limelight
Ann Taylor LOFT Sequin Flower Pin

Do you like how I incorporated some fashion items as well? I thought I'd throw that in there because it really has been something that has been popping into my daily life a lot this past month and in future videos, it may help me keep a log of what trends I'm into that month. It might be fun to look back on.

Let me know what you think!

Disclaimer: Revlon and Josie Maran products were sent to me by the company's PR. Melliesh product was sent to me by Pinky Paradise. I was not paid in any way nor required to do a review on the samples. All my reviews, as always, are 100% my honest opinion.

    I have a question: I currently just wear BB cream, and before that I just used mineral powder. I kind of want to move on and try concealer, foundation, something else? I noticed you use some MAC products for that...do u have any suggestions/recs on where/which products i should start with, on a limited budget? I dont want anything too heavy, but I do want good cover-up, and have no idea which products to look at... Thank youuuuu! <3
