May 2014 Favorites!


Hello! I hope you had a super fun May like I did. I feel like I’m finally getting out of the winter doldrums. The weather got nicer, the sun was out more often, I got to see my brother on leave from the Navy, and ran a bunch of races (including my second half marathon)! I also have A LOT of beauty favorites this month.

The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Body Butter- Mmmm…divine scent. Catch my video on it here.

L’Oreal Lumi Foundation– I really love this stuff. My shade is N3.

MAC Ocean City blush– LOVE, love, LOVE! I reviewed both blushes from this collection here.

BH Cosmetics Flawless Brow Trio– This product is definitely a hidden gem. It is so affordable and dare I say it- Just as good as high end brow products, including Anastasia brow powder. More on this later.

Smashbox Topaz cream shadow– Yes, again! Review coming soon.


I have so many lippie faves!

MAC Pure Zen– This is one of my favorite lipsticks. It’s a light peach shade. It is a permanent color, but I have the one from the Marilyn collection.

MAC Altered Beige– I mentioned this in this lippie combo post. I reviewed it last year here.

Sonia Kashuk Nude Poppy Velvety Matte lip pencil– Review coming soon. AMAZING color.

Boots No. 7 Nude lip liner– Also mentioned in my current lippie obsession post. If you’re looking for a nude lip liner, this is the one to get!

MAC Mangrove lipstick– Reviewed here.


 Physicians Formula Super BB Concealer– This has a nice neutral tone and it isn’t too heavy. It’s easy to apply and looks super natural.

Benefit Hello Flawless powder- (Reviewed here). This is so easy to wear without anything else. I need to use up some powders, so I’m starting with this one. 🙂

NARS Yamal eyeshadow– This is just the perfect eyeshadow for everything, in my opinion. I love this color and use it almost daily!

MAC Chromagraphic pencil in NC15/NW20– This is a great pencil for the waterline. It brightens things up without being too harsh, and it lasts all day.

Smashbox Sunkissed Matte bronzer– This was a CCO purchase earlier this month, and the texture is incredible! It is SO SOFT and the color is not orange, but adds natural warmth to the skin.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Delicata Blush– (Not pictured) I just reviewed this blush last week. All month I altered between Delicata and MAC Ocean City. This is such a great universal shade!
