April 2011 Favorites: Malibu Barbie Inspired

The rain's finally gone and the sun's been working overtime. Lately, I've been sporting a look that's somewhat inspired by Malibu Barbie. When I think of Malibu Barbie, I think of glowing bronzed skin, light blonde locks, bright baby blue eyeshadow, and pink lips. I'm ditched the blue eyeshadow but I've added a few products to complete my version of the Malibu Barbie look.
  1. Gilette Fusion ProGlide Power Razor- This is my new favorite razor. I've been using a hot pink Venus razor for years -I stocked up on lots of cartridges when it got discontinued. However, my cartridge supply is no more and I had to look for a new razor. The Fusions ProGlide is better. I get a super close, smooth shave and I haven't gotten any cuts (even when I shave super duper fast and carelessly.)
  2. NARS Illuminator in Laguna- I love this stuff. I apply it all over my face (except for my forehead) and it instantly gives my face a bronzed glow. I don't like messing with (real) tanning or self tanners so this is an easy solution. My skin tans easily but because it's just May, it's still lighter than usual and I love how this instantly perks up my skin.
  3. CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara- I can't believe this is in my monthly favorites. I went to Rite Aid hoping to pick up a Prestige mascara but sadly they were out of stock. I thought I'd give Lash Blast a try, again. I tried it when it first came out and hated it -surprisingly, this time around, it was pretty good! I get good volume and decent length without too much of a clumpy mess. The only issue I have with it is that it seems to smudge a lot.
  4. MAKE UP FOR EVER Eyebrow Corrector in #3- I recently dyed my hair a dark brown with a more reddish tone to it. I'm not crazy but thought it'd be a good chance to try my favorite brow product in another color. #3 matches my hair perfectly -so perfectly that I'm thinking about keeping this hair to keep using this sample! I'll have to buy the full size tube soon.
  5. Lola Lip Gloss in Understated Seduction- This is super moisturizing, was super cheap, and comes in a gorgeous shade so it was a given that I'd love it. The gloss gives my lips a pretty wash of blue pink without being too over the top.
  6. BITE Gloss in Pink Grapefruit- I bought this on a whim and I'm so glad I did. I love the color -it's a pigmented milky lilac pink with pink shimmer.
  7. LORAC Baked Matte Satin Blush in Exposed- I've been really into coral and peachy pink blushes lately so this automatically made my list. Exposed gives off a fabulous glow of peachy pink coral.
  8. Benefit Coralista Blush- Coralista, to me, is such a universal shade. It gives off the most flattering peachy coral glow and remains natural looking and not overdone.
  9. CARGO Topeka Blush- This is another peachy shade that looks amazing with a tan. I break Topeka out every time the sun comes out.
Have a lovely Friday everyone.


  1. I've been wanting to try the MUFE eyebrow corrector for such a long time! I keep forgetting to ask for a sample when I'm in Sephora though. Are you going to review it sometime?

  2. I love all that shades you have!

  3. I love how you use men's razors, they are so much better than the women's versions anyway. :)

  4. @ In Palace.. Thank you <33

    @ Tiffany.. Hey girl, sent you an email (with my review/thoughts). Hope it helps. =)

    @ Hollie.. Thank you. =)

    @ Justine.. Oh aren't they?! Goodness I can't believe how much better (and prettier) this is compared to my old Venus razer.
