APRIL BEAUTY FAVES (& Sephora VIB Spring Sale Picks!)

For the final installment of April faves, I give you: APRIL BEAUTY FAVES! The timing is perfect because the Sephora VIB Spring 2017 sale is only a few days away! If you're a VIB Rouge member (you spend $1000+ a year at Sephora) you get first access to the sale, beginning on April 18. You get 15% off EVERYTHING, in-store or online, and the code that will work for you is ROUGESPRING. If you're a VIB member, you can shop the sale starting April 19, and you also get 15% off everything with the code VIBSPRING. The member level available to everyone, Beauty Insider, gets access on April 20 and gives you 10% off everything with the code BISPRING.

Some of my picks for this month are a bit more on the pricey end because the sale helps me justify them ;) A few of them are repeats because they're THAT good and a sale is a good time to stock up on them! Here we go!

 These drops had a big learning curve for me. At first I thought there was no way I could make them work, but with a little experimenting, I learned that mixing ONE drop with primer/moisturizer gives you a beautifulllll glow that lasts even under foundation.

I love spritzing myself with this because it isn't flowery but still gives you a fresh scent.

 This. Stuff. Rules. Smells amazing and makes your hair so soft. A really great option if you're looking for a heat and UV protection spray!

You can use this on your hair, body, and face so it's a great multi-use option for travel and it smells delicious, of course.

 ColourPop makes AWESOME brow pencils that are comparable to ABH's Brow Wiz but at a fraction of the cost! I use the shade blonde.
