April 2016 Beauty & Fashion Favorites

Beauty
Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blow Dry (get it here!)
So I'll be honest, when I was reading the insane amount of amazing reviews on this product, I didn't totally understand what the hype could possibly be about. It was just a blow-dry cream, right? It is supposed to fight frizz, protect against heat damage, and has oil-absorbing powders to prolong the life of your blow-dry. So I tried it and holy shit. This stuff is life-changing. It literally gave me the best at-home blow-dry I've ever had, and made my second day hair look like I had just done it. This is already a must-have staple in my bathroom. 

Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector (get it here!)
This stuff is perfection. It's meant as a BB-cream type product (in the sense that is not full coverage), that has a built-in primer and instantly blurs pores. It has SPF 20 and it is just the perfect on-the-go, no fuss product. My only two complaints would be that the shade range is not very big (I wear the lightest shade and I'm definitely not the most pale girl out there), and the packaging could use a little work. For some reason, if its not stored upright, the product is impossible to get out. However, even with these two flaws, I still love this stuff. 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Lavender (get it here!)
Keeping in theme with the color-correcting theme every single makeup brand has put out this season, I picked up Urban Decay's version. I don't need a ton of color correcting - a little green for redness on my cheeks, a little salmon under my eyes for dark circles. But I have products that do both of those things, so I decided to get the lavender for highlighting and strobing, and I definitely don't regret it. The consistency is perfect, and the product is beautiful. I imagine any of the colors would work equally as well also, if you needed a different correction.

The Estee Edit by Estée Lauder Flash Illuminator in Spotlight (get it here!)
I was bored one day at Sephora and got a mini 15-minute makeover. I chose the contour/strobing makeover and I was strobed to perfection. This is one of the products that they used on me, and I immediately purchased it. This is now the second Estée Lauder product that I own, and neither disappoint. You can use it as a cream highlighter or add it to your foundation for some radiating light. Either is perfection.

LUSH Dirty Massage Bar (get it here!)
I am now addicted to LUSH's massage bars, and this is my new favorite scent. It smells just like the Dirty soap but has a dark chocolate center which makes it much more fragrant and indulgent. 

Fashion
Sank 'Yoga Sling 2' Sandal (get it here!)
Holly introduced me to these and I'm already addicted. The sandal part is made out of yoga mat material and it is as amazing as it sounds. The straps are jersey t-shirt material and come in a ton of different colors. I have gray, obviously. They run whole sizes only, so order up if you're a half size. Also, they're super cheap!
