The Blonde's May Favorites!


It’s that time again, favorites. May came and went so fast! But that just means we’re one step closer to SUMMER! Some of these products are new, and some are older ones that I have rediscovered and fallen for again!



 MAC Pro Longwear in NC15: I had been reading reviews on this particular foundation and finally decided to go and buy it. And I love it!!! This foundation is supposed to last for 15 hours, which is a big claim and honestly I didn’t think it would last that long for me. Normally I get ready for work at 6am and by the middle of the day when I have a break, my make up is blotchy or melted off. But, hand to God, I apply this foundation at 6am with a stippling brush and it’s still on AND looks the same throughout the day. And by the time I leave the gym at 9pm, I know my face is still looking good (minus the gym sweat of course). This is a full coverage foundation, but it feels like I am wearing nothing at all! Ok enough raving about this product.
 
Now, thanks to Lauren, I bought the e.l.f contouring blush & bronzing powder that she featured last month in her favorites! I really love this product, the bronzer is a bit dark for my skin color, so I literally just tap my brush in it twice, tap off the excess and I am good to go! I wouldn’t use this as an all over bronzer, but I love it for contouring and the blush is nice and subtle. it’s a great combination!
 
I have been using this eye routine as a natural-ish, everyday look. And it can easily be exaggerated for night as well. I have been using my Revlon color stay 12 hour eye shadow palette in Spring Moss, and using the lightest iridescent white color on my inner corner and over my lid. And then I use my e.l.f quad in Butternut, but only using the gold, bronzed color to go over my outer corner and crease. It is a great eye opening combination and its perfect for summer weather and bronzed skin.
 
My last favorite beauty product is the new polish by Essie in Braziliant. Its an orange color, which I am not normally a fan of, but it has amazing reflects in it which look awesome when the sun hits it! The color looks great on tan hands and it is such an unexpected color, it is great for summer. And I have gotten a lot of compliments on it so far!
 
Infiniti by Conair: I have been using this curling wand almost every single day since I purchased it. I absolutely love it!!! It gives amazing curls that fall to loose beach waves, I cant get enough of it and have been recommending it to everyone that asks me how I did my hair. The curls set and last so well, I don’t even use hairspray on them. Perfect quick hairstyle for summer, and it looks even better the second day!

 

Last, Dark Kiss fragrance mist by Bath and Body Works. I have had their candle in the scent for ever and finally went in and bought the body mist. The scent is addicting. It’s light enough for the day, yet still sexy. It’s described as “a seductive blend of voluptuous berries, tempting blooms and night musk”. Literally obsessed with this, my room smells like it and now I do as well!
 
Hope you enjoyed, see you all in the next post!

  1. omg I am in love with Dark Kiss! I favorited it a few months back on my blog, I am actually going to favor the body butter for this month (once I get around to doing it). The body butter is just as delicious, it differs the slightest bit from the spray- yum check it out, you wont regret it! I am in love with the scent and candles, so I am going to have to go back and grab a candle, my bf will be exited too! thanx for sharing
