Reading List - April 2016

It’s been a pretty good month for me in terms of reading.  I was able to tackle five books once again, but unfortunately two of them didn’t really do it for me and as a result I didn’t finish them.  But even then, I’m still pretty happy to be back reading with some regularity once again.  Fingers crossed that I can keep this up in the months to come.  So let’s check out my Reading List for April 2016!

SleekMakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette in All Day Soiree

SleekMakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette in All Day Soiree

Now out of all four of the SleekMakeUP Eye & Cheek Palettes that I own, this one was the one I was most worried about.  Don’t get me wrong; the SleekMakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette in All Day Soiree ($14.99 USD) is stunning, but the colours in it are so very light that I had horrible, horrible visions of my face with much too light makeup on it.  Seriously, what I was picturing is enough to give your nightmares.  But I was ‘in for a penny and in for a pound’ and bought it despite my initial reservations.  This week I finally sat down and tested it out, and I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Pearl

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – Pearl

Now I love me a good highlighter.  This is not news, to anyone at all, who either reads this blog or knows me in real life.  If it was acceptable to go around covered in highlighters or glitter from head to toe, I would probably do that.  Huge on my list of highlighter loves are those found in the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed range.  I’ve previously told you about me love for both the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop and Blushed Copper, both of which were limited edition.  Well in my quest to collect and review them all, I am bringing you the newest addition tot he BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed line, in the shade Pearl.

Sleek MakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette - See You At Midnight

Sleek MakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette – See You At Midnight

So last week I introduced you to one of Sleek MakeUP’s Eye & Cheek Palettes.  While the one I showed you before was a great everyday palette, the one I have for you today is a little more of a special occasion palette.  Don’t get me wrong, it can still be used everyday, if that’s your thing, but for me, I break this bad boy out when I’ve got some serious dressing up to do.  Lets take a look at Sleek MakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette in See You At Midnight ($14.99/$7.50).

Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm

Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm

The Sunday Riley Blue Moon Tranquility Cleansing Balm ($63 CAD) is one skincare product I’ve been trying to get my hands on for months.  Months I tell you!  But the reality is that due to both the popularity of the product itself, and the fact that you can only get it at one place in Canada, and even then only online, this bad boy has been out of stock for the longest time.  But a few weeks ago, I finally got the notification that it was finally in stock so I picked one up for myself.  VICTORY!
