How is it June already?! Time passes way, way, way too fast! It means I’m going to be going on my trip in a couple weeks! So exciting, yet I”m dreading the whole planning and packing process… which I will leave till last minute sadly. I don’t think I’ve ever done a post on monthly favourites, so I figure I should start it now!
This past month I’ve finally been a good girl and started putting on sunscreen on my face everyday. I have tried to make myself do that many times before, but all the sunscreens I’ve tried broke me out. I tried Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50 after a reader recommended it to me, and that’s what solidly put sunscreen into my morning routine! It has the distinct sunscreen smell, but it goes away after I apply it on my face. It also feels super light-weight, which is a huge plus. The price tag is a little hefty ($36 CAD for 50ml), but I think I might repurchase this when I run out, because I love it so much!
The next thing I’ve loved in May, is MAC eyeshadow in Star Violet. I love the formula, the shade, the wear time. I basically love everything about this! I usually wear it on the outer 1/3 of my lids, and then blend it into my crease, it’s a perfect shade for an everyday look, but can easily be build up for a more dramatic look.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Sandstrom. I have been using this product for at least…. 1.5 years, it’s a great setting powder, and it is drugstore! I am actually on my third one right now, which speaks for how much I love it!
I have been wearing NARS Liberte on my cheeks everyday since I got it. It’s the perfect coral blush for the summer. It gives me a gorgeous flushed look. I also love how long it lasts on my face. Another NARS blush that I love!
I never liked lip gloss before, until I discovered MAC Cremesheen glass, since then I have bought 4 in a month or two. My favourite this month is Dee-light. It’s a gorgeous mauve-y neutral pink color that is perfect for everyday look! They are also super not sticky, which is great!
One rekindled love is Lancome Hypnose drama mascara. I have used this a while ago, but then I switched to trying other products. I ran out of the other products so I started using a new tube of Hypnose drama, and it instantly reminds me how much I loved it! It does not smudge at all (even though it’s not advertised to be water proof), it makes my lashes look long, and lasts all day. The only thing is that you have to be careful when you are applying it, so it doesn’t clump up your lashes.
I haven’t been wearing nail polishes a lot this month since my nails are having a war with me, but for the first part of the month, I loved Zoya’s Farah. It is a gorgeous beige colour, and lasts a very long time! I wore it for around 2 weeks (with just one application!). Obviously there’s some chipping during those two weeks, but it was very minor! I am super impressed with Zoya polishes and I am planning on trying more of them!
What products did you love in May? I would love to hear about them!
