May 2018 Beauty Favorites

IMG_1221

May has flown by!  It was a busy month, and I am looking forward to lazy summer months!  June is my birthday month, and it’s a big one (drumroll please) … the big 5 0!

That is crazy to think about, but I’m looking forward to a new decade to explore!  My birthday is June 10th, and this weekend I think I’m going to do a birthday beauty wish list.  No one buys me makeup, but it won’t hurt to put it out there!  Maybe I’ll buy mystelf something nice.

On to my May faves! This month, I have loved the following gorgeous makeup:

Flower Beauty Light Illusion Liquid Foundation ($13.99 USD) —  This foundation is medium coverage, which is what I like!  I mix two shades Ivory L2 and Nude L3 for my perfect shade. It feels very weightless on and gives me a natural finish.  I wouldn’t say its dewy or matte, just looks like my skin, but way better!

Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume Mascara ($8.99 USD) — I received this in a gift with purchase at Ulta.  I haven’t used it in years, and realized how great it still is! I usually go for lengthening mascara, but this one gives me length as well as the promised volume.  And it doesn’t flake or smear!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette ($42 USD)  — A day to night palette with fourteen shades, including essential mattes and glam shimmers. I just bought this a couple of weeks ago, and it is really growing on me.  I seem to be doing the same look over and over with it, which isn’t like me at all! But, I’m hoping to try more looks and hopefully I will find it more versatile than I think it is!  I will be reviewing this very soon (plus the Too Faced Life’s A Festival Eye Shadow Palette I keep saying I’m going to review!).
ColourPop Ultra Blotted Lip in Love Bite (pinky nude) and Ultra Glossy Lip in Just Surfed 
(warm beige gloss drenched in silver and pink glitter) $6 each.  These are from the ColourPop and Eva Gutowski collaboration. I can’t wear matte lipstick alone because my lips get to dry, but with a gloss over it, I love them!  This looks gorgeous together and lasts for hours!  I need to pick up more Ultra Blotted and Glossy Lips stat!

Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer ($14.99 USD) —  I bought this a couple of months ago after giving into the hype, and I’m so glad I did!  At first, the scent was a little strong for me, but I am used to it now.  The color is gorgeous and applies so smoothly on.  It’s the only bronzer I am currently using.

What are you loving this month?  Anything new and fun, or something that you have rediscovered?
