April Favorite's!!

Well, another month in 2011 has come to a close. Tons more beauty products bought (by me :\ lol) reviewed, and swatched. So, once again i'm going to do mini-reviews of my monthly favorites for this past month. Links are provided if you want to read the full review and/or see swatches.

ECOTOOLS Blending Kabuki Brush: $8
This cute little kabuki is perfect for using with finishing powders, blushes, or bronzers. It gives sheer buildable and blendable coverage. Full review coming soon!

Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette: $4.99
This 8 pan palette of neutral browns and greens has quickly became one of my favorites! The left column (browns) is perfect for a natural day look, and the left column (greens) is perfect for a smokey night look! All shadows are pigmented and smooth. Go here for full reviews & swatches:

Milani Liquif'Eye Eyeliner in Black: $4.99
This eyeliner is heavenly! Its glides on smooth and super pigmented like a liquid liner, but dries quickly and stays put alllll day! It comes in various other shades and for $4.99 tis an amazing deal! This is also a supposed dupe for UD 24/7 Glide On pencils. Go here for full review & swatch:

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme: $6
If you've ever tried (or wanted) LUSH Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter, $12, you should check out your local drugstores for this amazing product instead! Burts Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream rivals LUSH in many ways: travel-friendly, compact/small, alot of product for your money, lasts a long time, amazingly effective! For full review go here:

Victoria's Secret Silky Eyeshadow in Private Beach (lustre): $10
Ten bucks seems a little pricey for one shadow, but trust me, its worth it! This lustre finish shadow is silky smooth, multi-dimensional, and lasts a long time! I have used it 10+ times since i bought in a 3 weeks ago and it looks like i havent even touched it yet. It's basically impossible to apply with a brush, but using your finger works just fine! :) For full review, EOTD & swatches go here:

NARS Deep Throat blush: $27
I won this beautiful peachy-pink blush in a contest a few weeks ago on Trina J's blog, and i am so glad i did! Its amazingly pigmented, smooth, blendable, and easily my favorite blush of all time. Such a universally flattering shade. For full review & swatches go here:

Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Score: $17
I got this little beauty for $5 on a sale a while back. Even though its SUPER tiny the quality is of the highest and its an amazing blush. This is also a peachy-pink blush but slightly lighter than NARS Deep Throat. For full review & swatches go here:

Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Soothing Lip Balm in Pretty Buff: $7
This cooling & soothing balm is so worth the money! There is TONS of product in this little tin and i can imagine this balm lasting be several months, if not over 1 year for me. It glides on smooth, cools and moisturizes lips, and has a hint of shimmer too! Definitely worth a try. For full review & swatch go here:
