Dose of Colors Creamy Lipstick

The Dose of Colors is a creamy, pigmented full coverage lipstick with a satin finish. What made me give this product a try was that for a very long time I never wore lipstick.  I have always been a lip gloss girl so when I decided to do the big chop as far as my hair, I wanted to change up my normal makeup look.  When I got the first lipstick shade I was hooked and decided to buy more shades.  This lipstick feels so great on my lips, the formulation is awesome and the shades that I purchased pairs very well with all of my various lip glosses.

Urban Decay Cosmetics Beached Eyeshadow Palette

Urban Decay has just released their new Beached line for the summer.  I really love Urban Decay’s Eye Shadow Palette lines and as usual, I immediately ordered this palette.  Can I tell you that the shades in this palette are GORGEOUS!! The shades are so pigmented and I am truly excited to dive into this palette to create some spring/summer makeup look.  So stay tuned for an upcoming review!! I can’t wait to give you all my thoughts and share some great looks with you all.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Hydrogel Mask 

The Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Hydrogel Mask quenches dry skin and transforms skin into smooth fully hydrated skin.  Due to my dry skin, I was really interested in giving this mask a try.  The winter was a bit longer than usual this year which punished my skin and I am still dealing with some extremely dry skin so it was recommended that I give this face mask a try.  I was very surprised that the mask was only $2.99. When I opened up the package you could clearly see that it was drenched in the hydrating serum which I loved. So I put the mask on and let it sit on my face for about 30 minutes.  The mask felt so good on my face and I truly felt that the mask was doing its job as far as hydration.  After about 30 minutes I removed that mask and rubbed the rest of the serum in my skin.  I can say I really liked the results of the mask and will definitely purchase more. My skin feels so refreshed and hydrated at the same time.

Real Techniques Blend + Blur Foundation/Contour Brush

The Real Techniques Foundation Brushes are a different type of makeup brush. The brushes are densely packed for cream or liquid foundation applications.  These brushes were recommended to me by a few beauty influencers and so I wanted to give these brushes a try.  When I first tried these out I was so impressed with how I was able to apply my foundation and also do my contouring.  The brushes applied the product so easily and evenly over my skin and the real plus was how awesome the brushes felt against my skin.  I have been using these brushes for about 2 weeks now and I am officially hooked.  Now I do have other foundation brushes that I do still use but these by far are the best.

IT Brushes for Ulta Love Beauty Fully All-Over Shadow Brush #216

I was looking for a good eyeshadow brush that I could use for an even all over eyeshadow application.  I basically use this brush to put on my base eyeshadow all over my lid.  I really love these IT Brushes and I have quite a few of this line of brushes in my collection.  This particular brush is nice and of great quality for the price.

Japonesque Pro Performance Brow Grooming Duo

I saw this grooming duo initially on Instagram and I pretty much looked all over to find the brush. My Brows had been in the need of some grooming.  I usually in the past have gotten my eyebrows threaded but I noticed that they would take more hair off than I truly needed. This Duo is sold at Target but it has always been hard to catch it when it was in stock so finally, I found this on Amazon.  Thank goodness for Amazon!!  Amazon has become a non-stop shop for some of my makeup purchases.  The scissors in this duo is awesome and I love the brush that comes with it as well.  So if you are in need of some brow grooming products I highly recommend this duo.

Well that it folks for this quick review on my April Makeup & Skincare Haul. So far all of the products listed have the official Lyric approval. Lastly, if you are new to my blog check out my other blog posts and feel free subscribe.
