MAY FAVES

It is the end of May, and almost my favorite season, SUMMER!  Hooray!  In fact, my kindergartener’s last day of school is today, and I feel just as excited as she is for summer break!  I have a few faves to talk about today that I have been using recently that I may have not talked about before, and they’re mostly makeup products!  Here we go 🙂



I have been using this Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Chihuahua almost  everyday!  This just the regular lipstick formula (not matte; not long wearing) and I love it!  It feels so smooth and hydrating, and the color is just my perfect shiny dusty mauve shade that I love!  The applicator on these is really cool, too.  It is a squeeze tube but has a spongey tip on the end.  It’s really easy to apply.



For my eyes, I have been wearing really light eyeshadow.  I’ve been using the NARS Kalahari Duo, and taking the deeper brown all over the lid, building it up in the crease, and then applying the lighter pewter gold shade in the center of my lid.  It gives a really nice natural look.  Super easy and quick!



Another makeup item is this L’Oréal Magic Lumi Primer.  A little bit of this goes a long way, and it reminds me a lot of MAC Strobe Cream with the pearly color, which I used to use a lot.  It doesn’t make my skin shimmery or anything, just instantly brightens up and adds some moisture to my dry skin.  I put this on underneath my foundation.


I’ve got two hair care faves, first is this Ouai Wave Spray.  I got this bottle as a sample and it’s a huge sample that has lasted me so long!  I love the way this SMELLS, but I also love how it makes my hair piece-y and beachy without being crunchy or gel-like.  I love to spray this in dry hair after blowdrying and scrunch a bit.  The effect is so effortless, yet still put together.  Also, the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo is quickly becoming my favorite dry shampoo ever!  It smells good (that’s important) and it really helps to make my hair feel clean!  My hair doesn’t get oily, but it does get a bit flat, and this perks it right up adding  lot of volume.

  I mentioned this in my Hot Pink Nail Polish post, and I’ve been wearing it so much this month!  This is CND in Pink Bikini.  It’s a perfect hot watermelon pink, and it just pops on  my nails.  I love the formula of this nail polish, it lasts so long.

That’s it for the faves!

What have you been loving in MAY?
