May Favorites

I can't believe May is already gone! It makes me very excited for what's ahead! I can't wait to share with you guys all the amazing experiences that come with summer! But, meanwhile here are a few of my favorite products :) 


Face

St. Ives Blemish Control apricot scrub- this guy is an exfoliator that Claims to prevent blackheads and minimize pores. I am 100% convinced that it does exactly what it claims, my skin hasn’t felt this good in. . .well forever. It smells absolutely delicious. It is not of a runny consistency, making it easy to apply, it leaves the skin feeling minty, tingly, fresh, soft and smelling amazing. It is oil free and hypoallergenic, I absolutely recommend it!

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion- this guy is obviously one of my monthly favorites; I talked about him on a recent post, you can check out HERE.

L’Oreal True Match Lumi foundation- this foundation has become my absolute favorite. It provides medium coverage so it’s not very thick and it contains SPF 20 (which I love). It’s a very blendable foundation that does not feel heavy on the skin. I am currently using the shade Classic Beige or C5.


Eye(brow)s


L’Oreal Telescopic Explosion mascara- I have struggled to find the perfect mascara for my super straight and tiny eyelashes. This one not only kept them up but it made them look longer! I use the waterproof version of it, so I know that that’s part of the reason it holds up the curl, but I’ve tried other waterproof mascaras and they do nothing compared to this one. The applicator is a small spikey ball, which surprisingly makes it easier to apply. The one I grab is in Blackest Black.

Rimmel London Colour Rush Trio 730 spices- these shadows have been sitting in my makeup drawer for a while. I recently picked them up again and I’ve been enjoying them. There is a light brown, a light pink, and a light peachy vanilla color.  They aren’t very pigmented, but I like to use them on my lid when I’m going for a more natural look.

NYX Eyebrow cake powder- I have gone through a lot of eyebrow products and I think I finally found something I like! The palette comes with a wax and two different colors, a dark brown and a light brown- along with an applicator brush and spooly. There are a variety of different shades available, the one I’m using is Dark Brown/Brown.


Lipies


Aquaphor Lip Repair- earlier this month I was out with my boyfriend and my lips were feeling very chapped, we stopped by a drug store and he bought me this little guy! It doesn’t smell or taste yucky like other medicated lip products. It leaves my lips soft and smooth, I cant stop putting it on, and apparently Chloe can't stop chewing on it either.

Revlon’s Blasé Apricot Lipstick- He has become my go to lipstick. It has vey good color payoff and it goes on smoothly. I feel that it can be worn with any outfit.

Revlon Colorburst in Killer Watt- I pair him with the Apricot lipstick but I also like to wear him alone for a more subtle look. The formula is not thick or sticky making it very wearable. The color you get on your lips is exactly the color of the bottle.

  9. Thanks for featuring the Lumi foundation. I've heard a lot of reviews about it never setting because it's such a dewy foundation. Do you ever have this problem?

    1. You're right it is a very dewy foundation, but I personally like the dewy finish. I do however find myself having to repowder throughout the day to keep it from sliding all over the place

      Hope I was helpful :)
