♡ May Favorites

June 03, 2013


Like most of this year so far, May has flown by. I've been discovering so many great products recently that i'm surprised I managed to narrow down my favorites to only 8 items! These are the products that I've been reaching for pretty much everyday and they have quickly become staples in my daily routine. 


1. Origins Make A Difference Plus Rejuvenating Moisturizer
I've been using this for just over a month now and I think it's safe to say that this is one of the best moisturizers I've ever used. I have dry/combination skin which means foundation often ends up looking a bit dry and patchy on me, but since I've been using this I've found that my makeup applies much easier and looks natural for a lot longer.

2. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
I've been using this to conceal and brighten my under eye area as I find it doesn't crease immediately which is  often the case with many under eye concealers. It's also great for covering any imperfections and blemishes as it's highly pigmented.

3. Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder
This is the perfect everyday subtle highlight. Instead of leaving your cheeks glittery, it creates a lovely natural glow. Full review here

4. Essie Go Ginza Nail Polish
The newest edition to my Essie collection is this pastel lilac shade that is perfect for spring and summer. I've also found that it lasts a little bit longer than some of my other Essie polishes, around 4 days without chipping. 

5. Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors in 05 Candy Shimmer and 06 Rosewood Shimmer
These seem to be popping up on the blog everywhere. Definitely my favorite lip gloss of all time, and I've been loving the new shades that launched at the End of April, especially candy shimmer. Full review here

6. Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera
I've fallen in love with everything about this product, from the packaging, to the colour, to the formula. It looks beautiful on both cheeks and lips and is the perfect blush if your looking for something natural and radiant.

7. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
I intend to do a full review on this foundation but since it has hardly left my face over the past month I simply had to include it in my favorites too. This is without doubt the best foundation I've tried so far. It hides imperfections without looking at all 'cakey' or unnatural and appears pretty much like skin with a healthy glow that isn't too shiny or matte. 


I hope you all had a wonderful month and are excited for summer! Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?

  14. So many favorites of yours that I have been wanting to try out forever! The KA celestial powder is a forever wishlist of mine but I am being stubborn and want to completely use up one of the many highlighters I have first before purchasing. I am still kicking myself for not picking up any of the Stila Convertible colors when their official website had a 50% sale. And I am most definitely picking up the NARS creamy concealer soon! Wonderful list of favorites, you have me lusting like crazy :)
