May 2013 Favorites!


I have so many favorites this month! I found myself reaching for most of these items daily, or almost daily. Some I have written full reviews on, but if you want to see a full review of anything posted, just let me know!


For brushes this month, I reached for a couple of new additions to my stash, and discovered something that I haven’t used very often.

The EcoTools Face and Body brush is simply amazing. Full review here.

I also picked up some brushes from Bdellium this month, and the 952 brush is steadily becoming my go to powder blush brush!

The MAC 187SE is one that I got with the purchase of a holiday brush set. I hadn’t really picked it up much, but I have been using it all month and am in love with the finish it gives my foundation.


Speaking of foundation, I can’t get enough of MAC Mineralize Moisture in NC 25. Full review here.

I’ve also been obsessed with cream blushes. I’ve been using MAC Something Special, as well as a Cargo Color Stick in Key West. I don’t know why these blush sticks don’t get more publicity in the blogging world. Yes, they are $28, but they are so creamy and stay all day on my skin! They are also incredibly pigmented. I was lucky enough to nab this shade at Sephora last summer for $7.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is another product I reached for almost daily. I am obsessed with this stuff and am planning a full review soon. My shade is Custard.

Now that it’s getting warmer out, I’m using bronzer more, and have been reaching for this Sonia Kashuk cream bronzer  in Warm Tan constantly! Full review here.

MAC Prep + Prime in Radiant Rose is quickly becoming a staple in my daily makeup routine. I love the texture of this product. It is so soft and creamy, and I love how it highlights my face.

NYX Gel Liner & Smudger in Dark Brown is something I have used nearly every day this month. I am hooked on brown eyeliner for a softer look. Full review here.


I am trying to be better to my hair and not dry it as much. Since discovering the Organix Moroccan Sea Salt Spray, I’ve been embracing my natural waves instead of blow drying my hair straight. I have a full review on this product here. I will continue to purchase this when I use up this bottle!

Finally, I’ve been loving a new product from The Body Shop, and that is their body mists! I have two scents: pink grapefruit and mango, but I’ve reached for the mango one more this month. It seems to have a hint of sugar added to the natural mango scent. I love how fruity and clean it smells.

What are your favorites this month? I’d love to hear them! 🙂

  1. The something special blush looks really pretty. I have to get that me thinks. I actually love all your favourites. 🙂

      Thank you! 🙂 Something Special is gorgeous…I actually wanted to buy it while I was in Chicago, but it was sold out at the store. I went back to the hotel and ordered it online immediately! 😀
