I found this from watching one of That’s Heart’s videos and as it was Nivea I was definitely going to try it. I like Nivea and I was using one of their lip balms for a few months at one point and even my husband would steal it every now and then. They have a good record and this lip butter was right on track. I bought Smooth Kiss (original) and Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss, which smells like white chocolate but doesn’t taste like it. I love that they give glossy lips but not I-just-ate-fried-chicken lips. I could wear it on it’s own. It does keep your lips very moisturized. I wear the original at night and my lips aren’t dried out in the morning and I keep the Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss in my handbag. It’s a product that I’ll buy again for sure when I run out, provided that they do not discontinue it. Funny enough, Heart mentioned this in her April Favorites as well :).
DiorSkin Nude (Deep)
I bought this as my official BB Cream. First of all, the best surprise I got was the pump. A pump on a tube? Excellent! I get the perfect amount every time. I guess if I wanted more coverage I could add more but when I use one pump it evens out my skin and I love how soft and smooth it feels. Be sure to set this with setting/finishing powder. It does transfer a bit so be careful when wearing white and if you are trying on clothes.
Anastasia Brow Kit – Brunette
I wrote about this product here when I first received it. I always used brow pencils before and I didn’t know I could like an eyebrow kit as much as I like this one. I even like it more than the Too Faced Brow Envy kit >_<. This is definitely a staple in my collection.
This necklace and matching bracelet was my first Christmas gift as Mrs. Fowler. I often wear the bracelet with the charm as I thought the necklace was too chunky for everyday wear, but nice for special occasions. Boy was I wrong! I put the charm on the necklace and wore it the other day with jeans and a t-shirt. I don’t know why I hadn’t done it earlier. I’m obsessed with it. I normally wear dainty chains (two that he also got for me) but in changing things up a little, I’m very happy that I took a step out of the box. It is a little heavy, so after wearing it for a day and taking it off, I keep feeling like something is missing around my neck. I know something is a hit when my husband does a double take and says it looks nice lol.
I showed this to you here and I just started using it as the weather is getting warmer. I was keeping it for warmer weather because my skin gets a little oilier around this time and this is what it is supposed to do:
- Minimizes the look of sebum build-up
- Controls the appearance of oily shine
- Promotes balanced skin clarity
What is sebum? I didn’t know either! And I just looked it up to add to this post lol. This is how Bing defined it:
This explains why after 6 hours my face still looks fresh, and going on 12 hours I have a slight shine. I should add that now I’m wearing sunblock as well and that also gives me a matte look. And it has a pump as well! No over pouring here. I use two pumps to get just over a pea-sized amount. Since the sun was out out for a few days I wasn’t using the Dior BB creme often, I use the DDF and sunblock on my face, fill in my eyebrows and lipgloss and I’m out the door. I look like I’m wearing something on my face – foundation or powder, something. It is also listed under their Acne line. Another one for the staples!
I have a few things lined up to try for May so I think it will be an interesting month. Hope you liked this post! If you’ve tried any of the products, have any questions or just want to say hi, feel free to leave a message in the comments :).
