April Beauty Empties!

Hey loves!

Happy spring! I am trying to purge and get rid of some of the clutter in my apartment, and that starts with getting rid of my beauty empties. Now, that I am literally a subscriber to every beauty box out there, I have way more products then ever! Check out these beauty products that I LOVE and have been using the past couple of months.

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel $41 ON SALE

This gel cleanser is great for all skin types. I typically have acne prone skin, so I use products with Salycillic Acid which tend to dry out my skin. However, this cleaner is infused with mint and lavender which calms my skin. I use this in the mornings and use my medicated face wash at night to give my skin a break. I definitely will be purchasing this product again.

Aqua Moist Gel by Sally’s Box $43

I received this in one of my Ipsy bags a few months ago… and it was history from there. This water based gel moisturizer, leaves my face feeling so hydrated! Since it contains aloe vera gel, it is soothing and leaves my skin noticably soft. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

M.A.C. Patent Polish Lip Pencil in Sultana $21

I’ve talked about this lip gloss before, and nothing has changed. This is my daily lip color, and I pray M.A.C. doesn’t discontinue it ( I always feel like the products I love are limited edition ). I know matte lip gloss is the trend, but I just hate the feeling of dry lips. This lipstick is creamy, and lasts for hours. Get this, you will not be disappointed.

AVON Clearskin Professional Deep Pore Cleaning Scrub $4.59

My mother in law is chemist for AVON, so I am always trying out their products. I have tried many of their face washes but this cleaner is the best. This cleansing  scrub is packed with Salicylic acid and scrubber beads that make their way deep into your pores to prevent breakouts. I have been using this product for a couple of years now, and I HIGHLY recommend!

Overnight Clearing Gel by Dermalogica $50

This is a topical gel treatment to prevent night time breakouts. It is a little pricey but significantly helps shrink my pimples. I am not sure if I will purchase this product again because I have used a few less expensive alternatives that work just the same.

The PORE-fessional Face Primer by Benefit $30

I have heard great things about this primer, so I decided to try it. Unfortunately, I hated it. The consistency of the primer is what bothered me, I felt like it didn’t blend into my skin well and was a bit cakey. I understand that it is supposed to fill your pores like putty, to create a smooth surface for your foundation. But, it just didn’t work for me. I do not recommend this primer.

Dior Addict It-Lash Mascara $29

Love this mascara! I stumbled upon it because my normal Diorshow mascara was out of stock. I quickly read some great reviews about this product, and I was not disappointed. The applicator separates and lengths my curly lashes. It also has a spiked ball separator on the end to get into the corners. I will purchase this mascara in the future.

Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner – Marc Jacobs $25

Am I the only one who hates sharpening eye liners? Well.. because I have stabbed my self too many times with pencil eye liners, I only use gel liners and this stuff is the TRUTH! It glides on effortlessly, last for 12 hours, and is waterproof. This is now the only eyeliner I ever need. Oh! and it has a built in sharpener at the base. All in all, this is a great product and worth the price.

LA Girl HD Pro Concealer $4.99

This makeup staple never lets me down. I have this in many colors, but I use Toast most. I think the main reason I love this concealer, is the brush applicator. It helps me shape my eye brows and contour effortlessly. Also, because the packaging is soft you are able to squeeze out every last drop of product.

Urban Decay All NighterMakeup Setting Spray $10

I bought this on a whim, while standing online at Sephora (the impulse buy tunnel of death). I forgot I needed a setting spray, and saw this was only 10 bucks! Now, this came in a  travel size and lasted for about 6 months! So, that alone makes me want to buy this product again. The setting spray mists evenly and feels light, NOT crunchy as I have found with other setting sprays. I will purchase this product again.

Thanks for reading, it means the world to me!  Don’t forget you can join my mailing list here for updates on new posts, giveaways, newsletters and more.
