May favorites :)

06. junij 2014


Hello my lovelies! Today I thought I'd share my May beauty and skin care favorites with you. I skipped April, because I wasn't really using any new products or at least not enough new ones to write a whole post on them. :) But in May I've managed to acquire a bunch of new things and have been loving a lot of them, so... here they are.




I've been thoroughly enjoying my new eyeshadow palette from Too Faced - the Chocolate Bar palette. I've been using it exclusively ever since I got it. It's a gorgeous neutral palette with a bit of color in it as well and it smells divine (just like the Chocolate Soleil bronzer, which is also one of my favorites). :) A full review with swatches and some looks will be coming up next week, so stay tuned for that.

My eyebrows have been looking pretty good, thanks to Lily Lolo's eyebrow duo in medium - it's a great duo with a wax and powder in it. At first I was afraid the color would be too dark for me, but it turned out to be just right. :)

I found a new under eye concealer and it has quickly become my favorite. I still very much love my e.l.f. Tone Correcting concealer, but this CC eye cream from Bourjois is amazing. I have it in the lightest shade and it covers any discoloration I have under my eyes and brightest at the same time, love it!

I've grown quite fond of Maybelline's The Rocket mascara. At first I didn't really like it - I think it was too wet, but now that the formula got a bit dryer I love it. It gives my tiny, sparse lashes a bit of volume as well as some length and it doesn't irritate my eyes either. A very nice mascara indeed!

For my face I've been loving my trusty Lily Lolo mineral foundation in Blondie - now that the weather's getting warmer I don't want to wear liquid/cream foundation, I just want something that feels weightless, evens out my skin tone and blends seamlessly with my skin... and this foundation gives me everything. :)

And I also fell in love with a new blush - Lancome's Rose Ballerine. The blush looks absolutely stunning in the pan, but also looks amazing on the cheeks. It's a lovely gentle pink shade with a highlighting effect, very beautiful.




I've been enjoying my new Illamasqua nail polishes on my nails - I've worn them all throughout May. You can check out manicures done with Facet and Trilliant (Fire Rose will be up on Monday).

On my lips I've been loving MAC's Syrup or Plumful, Syrup on more casual days and Plumful for more special occasions. :) I've also been wearing some new lip glosses - one from Makeup Revolution (in the shade Coral) and the other one from Smasbox (in the shade Ruby) - I got this one from Sara (Passing Fancy) but I haven't had the chance to snap some pictures of it to include it here. You can however take a peek at how it looks on my lips, in my most recent FOTD. :)

Two more face products I've been loving are Urban Decay's De-Slick mattifying powder (because we are all getting a bit more 'dewy' now that the temperatures are rising) and Chocolate Soleil bronzer (in Milk Chocolate) from Too Faced - my absolute favorite bronzer of all times. :)




As for skin care products... I've already posted about some of these in my recent post - 'What my skin's been loving', so go check that one out. 

I've also been really enjoining Andalou Naturals Avo Cocoa mask - a great, nourishing mask that smells incredible. :) My staple cleanser for when I'm cleansing my skin under the shower has been Alverde's Clear cleansing cream and my new favorite makeup remover is Clarins' Pure Melt cleansing gel (full review coming soon). And once again, when I had some random hormonal breakouts, my night in shinning armor was Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion - amazing stuff! :)


So, here you have them, my May favorites. What are your thoughts on them? What would you like me review first? :)

    1. Sta ti všeč kremici? Kaj pa Cleanse&Polish, si tudi že sprobala? :)

    2. Ja, obe sta mi super, čeprav nisem opazila nobenega napredka glede podočnjakov (kar niti nisem pričakovala). Mislim, da mi je od Antipodes še celo malce ljubša.
      Ne tistega še pa nisem, nameravam narediti first impression z njim :)

  4. Fina izbira :) Ravno sem gledala Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion na Beauty Bay, ker je po dveh letih že čas da kupim en spot treatment, po možnosti tak ki deluje, ampak se mi zdi tako drag.

    1. Hvala! :D

      Ja, tale paletka je fantastična, pride ocena ta teden. ;) Če si čokoholik, potem bi ti bila maska zelo všeč. Olje od Nuxa pa res rabiš, super je. :D

  6. Same čist hude reči! Blush je noro lep, o Illamasquinih lakih sploh ne rabim izgubljat besed, ostalo gre pa direkt na lust list :) Samo tale CC korektor od Bourjois mi ne odgovarja, verjetno sem ena redkih, ampak meni je prav grozen :P

    1. Hvala Ina! :)

      Ja, laki so fantastični... jih imam še kar nekaj na wishlistu. :) Blush je pa tudi čudovit, sem se bala da bom razočarana, ampak je zelo pozitivno presenetil.
