Oh, where has the time gone! I feel like it was just the beginning of the year and now we have 6 months till the end of the year. Lets not move to quickly though we still have to talk about our favorites from the month of May.
A lifestyle favorite of mine has been my blogging notebook. I’ve always been a stationary lover so naturally I needed to purchase a journal for my blog. A quick run into Staples and out I come with the Markings Large Textured Journal. I’ve become slightly obsessed with writing to do lists and planning out my blog content. I swear I could write up an entire post just on my blogging organization. While I’m working on my blog, I’ve loved burning the Diptyque Jasmin Candle. My mom’s friend gave me this candle and I’ve not stopped burning it. The scent can fill an entire room with no problem. Definitely putting this candle at the top of my wishlist.
Moving on to beauty favorites, my first one is skincare related. It’s the Simple Cleansing Micellar Water. I’ve sworn by this product ever since it came out and there is no sign of it leaving my skincare routine anytime soon. If you want to hear more in detail about this product check out my full review here. Now it is time for some makeup loves from May. The Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water has been my best friend throughout these hot summer months. When I first picked this product up from Sephora I had my doubts on whether it was going to work but I was surprised at how well it made my make up last. This spray is perfect for refreshing your make up throughout the day while leaving a cooling sensation on the skin. Definitely two thumbs up in my book. Another base product I’ve been having a moment with is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Ginger. The doe foot applicator makes it easy to pop onto your blemishes and buff into the skin. Speaking of buffing it into the skin I’ve been reaching for the Real Techniques Angled Shadow Brush to blend out the concealer. The angle of the brush makes it convenient to get around the nose area and under the eye. Sadly this brush only comes in the Nic’s Picks set but I would highly suggest picking up this set just for this brush. Now it’s time to focus on the cheeks and lips. A blush I never seem to get tired of is the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed. No matter what season it is or what makeup look I’m going for this blush always seem to go with it. This blush has definitely been placed in the top 5 category. Rounding up my may favorites is the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in 03 Nude Shimmer. The formula of this product is a hybrid between the sheen of a lipgloss and the pigmentation of a lip crayon which is perfect for those “no makeup” makeup days.
That’s a wrap for the May Favorites! It was rather a long one considering I’ve not done a favorites post since February which is crazy. So I’m going to try my hardest to regularly do this post at the end of each month. What were some of your favorites from May?
