April Beauty Favorites

April-Favorites-2
As we come to the close of April, I’ve been frantically testing out products I think are worthy of getting the favorite of the month tag. Here are a few I recommend. 

1. FRESH Sugar Sport Treatment Sunscreen SPF 30 ($25 @ fresh.com, sephora.com) – Since it’s in a stick form, you can slide it in your purse and never worry about spillage. Now there’s no excuse for not wearing SPF, right?

2. IT COSMETICS Heavenly Luxe You Sculpted! #18 Contour & Highlight Brush ($34.50 @ itcosmetics.com) - So why don’t I have a brush like this in my collection? I didn’t realize how much I needed one in this shape until I saw this one! Isn’t that always the case? Love this one for (trying) to sculpt my cheeks and to brush under the jaw line. 

3. KISS USA Ruby Kisses Matte Lipstick in Red Mangrove ($2.99 @ kissusa.com) – Wait, did you even know this brand made anything beside lashes and fake nails? I didn’t! I saw a few YouTube videos raving about their matte lipsticks so I had to try them and they are really all that. If you like a little moisture with your matte lippies then these are for you and how about that price?? I picked mine up at my local beauty supply store.

4. BENEFIT COSMETICS Dandelion Shy Beam Liquid Highlighter ($26 @ benefitcosmetics.com) – This is such a nice matte pinky nude highlighter that can be use anywhere on the face. Lately it’s been ruling the tops of my cheeks.

5. CLINIQUE Pep-Start Eye Cream ($26.50 @ clinique.com and sephora.com) – I’ve never needed an eye cream more than in the last few months for some reason. #aging. This one is light on the skin and on the purse strings. It hydrates, depuffs and really seems to wake me up.

6. ELIE SAAB ‘Le Parfum Rose Couture’ Eau de Toilette ($80/1.6oz, $108/3oz only @ nordstrom.com) – Anything rose always welcomes springtime for me and I’ve worn this one non-stop since I got it. Orange flower, jasmine, rose nectar, vetiver, sandalwood, patchouli, mandarin tree blossom, gardenia and warm honey rose. Every note says feminine.

7. TARTE COSMETICS Rainforest of the Sea Wipeout Color-Correcting Palette ($45 @ tartecosmetics.comsephora.com) – You don’t need to suffer from any kind of discolorations on your skin anymore! Color-correcting is all the rage for a reason. It works! This one has 6 creams shades to get your skin on point.

Dancing with Degree & Becky G #spon

Degree-MotionSense-Dry-Spray-for-Men-and-Women
It’s funny, I love to dance, especially salsa, but I have to admit, I’m not that talented. What I am pretty great at is getting all dressed up with the makeup and the dress and putting on my fancy dance shoes. However, most of the time I find it almost not even worth the effort of trying to impress any guy on the dance floor because I get so sweaty! My hair style falls down not to mention my underarms, or rather, what crops up under my arms and onto my dress.

So while I feel so sexy making moves and stylin’ on the dance floor, afterwards, eh, not so much.

That’s why I’m excited to be part of this campaign to join Becky G as she shows us not only how to get her favorite dance moves, like, “The Look Away,” “The Move It,” and “The 1-2 Step,” but also how she keeps dry by using Degree Dry Sprays.

The-Move-It-with-Becky-G

Being in the single lane these days means I have to get out there and meet people and I find I really do when I’m out dancing but I can’t keep an active lifestyle if I’m well, ok, I’ll say it, wet under the arms! Because #EveryMoveCounts, right? This Degree MotionSense Fresh Energy Dry Spray Antiperspirant shown in the picture has the technology to release an extra burst of protection when you kick it up in high gear.

So get your moves up to speed and check out the latest by watching a step-by-step dance tutorial from Becky G here.  

Degree comes in a few formulas and you can check them all out here and also at Walmart stores nationwide.

And be sure to check out my Facebook page here or http://www.facebook.com/cybele.says.7  tomorrow to enter a contest sponsored by Degree. You won’t be sorry!
