My April Faves :)

1. Keds!  I have been quite literally living in these babies.  They look great with everything...jeans, leggings, jeggings, you name it - they look adorable.  These are the Champion Canvas Originals (link).  I bought mine at Foot Locker i believe and when i got home i sprayed them with Kiwi Select Rain & Stain Protector, in attempt to keep them as white as possible.  If i get a bit of dirt on these shoes, i just wipe/rub it with a wet cloth and it comes right out.  LOVE.  ♥

2. Urban Decay's "Midnight Tea Party" (Midnight Cowboy Rides Again is the original name) eyeshadow (third e/s on top row pictured).  I rediscovered this shadow & have fallen in love again.  It's super glittery and brings a bit of interest to the eyes.  I put this all over my lid & a bit into the crease, it looks super pretty & i've gotten compliments on my makeup while wearing this!  I have a full review on the Alice In Wonderland BOS, so if you want to check that out, link HERE!  ♥

3. Lancome Sensational Effects Quads.  I have three of these, but these are the two i use most.  I use these just about everyday and really like them.  I believe i got them in gift sets at Boston Store a couple months ago.  The pigmentation in these varies and the shadows themselves aren't extremely long lasting, but i really like the colors and they're fantastic for travel.  (link to Lancome's eyeshadows)  ♥

4. L'Oreal Lash Boosting Serum - i'll just start by saying this stuff is amazing for the price you pay.  It was a little over ten dollars ($13 i believe) and definately worth the value.  I've been using this for about two weeks & have already noticed a difference.  My lashes are naturally short & stubby, and fall out easily.   I've noticed my lashes are stronger & don't fall out so frequently while removing my eye makeup, and i've definately seen an improvement in the volume of my lashes.  I haven't really noticed at difference in the length, but for around thirteen bucks, i didn't expect to end up with false-looking lashes - they may be starting to curl a bit though, so i suppose the length could be improving (haha sorry for confusion...).  ♥

5. CoverGirl Cheekers blush in 110 Classic Pink.  I got this after recommendation from EGheartsSCC on YouTube & have been loving it!  I hit major pan on my favorite blush, Clinique Iced Lotus, and have been trying to find less expensive dupe for it, well i've found it!  This blush is pretty well pigmented, is fairly long-lasting, and it's such a pretty color - i'm a sucker for pink blushes :).  The only thing i don't like about it is the smell, a lot of people seem to like it, but i hate it!  The scent also seems to invade my nose, even if i'm trying to keep it at a distance...good thing you can't smell it while you have it on your cheeks!  I apply this blsh with a MAC 129 brush.  ♥

6. Love My Eyes Kohl-Kajal Eyeliner Soft Crayon in 808 White.  I absolutely adore this eyeliner!  Ohmygoodness.  I wear this on my waterline & it really brightens up my eyes, makes them appear bigger, and makes me appear more awake.  This eyeliner was only about $3 at Wal-Mart and it's probably the best $3 i've spent in a long, long time.  The pigmentation is really great, it's really creamy, & it's also very long lasting, even on the waterline!  Definately a product to check out.  ♥

7. Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in 070 Soft Nude.  I'm usually the type of girl to go for a light pink lipstick, but i wanted to try out a nude lippie for a change (this is the first nude lipstick i've ever owned...sad isn't it haha).  I think i've found the perfect nude!  It's kind of a more peachy-toned nude, which i thought i wouldn't like, but it turned out to be really nice!  The lipstick itself is very moisturizing and very pigmented.  For the price, what's not to love?  ♥

8. CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume in Black.  The first time i bought this was several months ago and when i ran out of it, i was upset but kind of forgot about it after a while - i had a ton of other mascaras to use up so i didn't think to repurchase.  I was walking down the cosmetics aisle in Wal-Mart (the same trip as when i purchased the CoverGirl Cheekers) & spotted it, and just couldn't resist but to throw it in the cart.  This is my all time favorite mascara, it gives amazing volume to my lashes - i usually do two coats with this and it makes my stubby lashes look like falsies!  I don't know what i did for the past couple months without this mascara.  ♥

9. Vera Wang Princess perfume.  I've had this stuff since March 2009 and it's still going strong.  The scent of it is super girly & pretty and i just love it.  I actually rediscovered it about a month ago and have been using it constantly since.  I actually first tested out this perfume because i was reading a magazine and Joe Jonas said he loved this perfume on a girl...haha i was having a major Jonas Brothers-phase :).  Although my love for all things Jonas isn't as strong, my adoration for this perfume is still going :) ♥

10. Katie, Dollybowbow on Youtube.  This obv. isn't a product & isn't pictured, but i've been loving this girl & her videos!  I discovered her channel just this weekend and just thought i'd mention her.  She is super sweet & adorable, and i love her style!  You girlies should deff check her out :)
