Julia’s April Favorites

APRILDentek Floss Picks + Case: I’ve really cut down on the products I carry around with me on a daily basis, but this is one of the few I have added. When you need dental floss, you NEED it, so why not always have it?

Lip Bang’s Lip Freak: I already mentioned this balm but it’s the only chapstick to survive the great bag clean-out mentioned above, so it deserves a second shout-out.

Make Up For Ever Kohl Pencil in Matte Mocha Brown: This isn’t so much of a monthly favorite as it is a life favorite. After laying off the eye makeup in early 2014, April was the month I brought it back. These trusty eyeliners have been in my collection for a long time, and I always reach for the brown during the day because it has a smokey intensity that isn’t as strong as the black.

Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream: When I noticed my best friends’ eye area looking dry, I told her to use this and woke up to an “OMG it helped so much!!” text, which in turn got me back in the habit of using this hydrating helper. Very gentle (I have sensitive skin and she has super sensitive skin) this is a great basic eye-cream that should be part (or the start of) your collection.

Deborah Lippmann Spring Buds: A pastel green that is neither easter egg bright or earthy feeling. It’s just the perfect warm-weather nail.
