Another month, another round-up of favorites! This month includes a few warm weather staples, the best non-middle school high shine lipgloss, and the base you're all probably tired of seeing ;)
Marc Jacobs Enamored Lipgloss 'Pretty Thing' : The most sophisticated high-gloss shine to ever grace my makeup bag. This gloss is super long lasting, smooth (not sticky by any means), gives the perfect nude/pink tint, and has a high-gloss finish that gives off a plumping effect.
Maybelline Volum' Express, The Colossal Mascara : Maybelline usually tends to win the mascara game in my opinion. My standard go-to being their Full N' Soft mascara - which gives light, long, and fluttery lashes. To change it up a bit, I've been loving the Volum' Express Colossal mascara. This gives a bit more of a defined, jet black lash. It can be built up to have that spidery look (that I really love on bottom lashes) or just quickly swiped on for full, thick black lashes.
Chanel CC Cream : How could I do a May favorites without including this coveted base that has graced pretty much every post or Instagram this month?! This base ticks off every box on my list - long lasting, good coverage, light weight, and dewy. I used another foundation the other morning just to change it up a bit and two hours into the morning totally regretted not using my Chanel. It's that good.
Tom Ford Cream + Powder Eyeshadow Duo 'Golden Peach'* : I've been loving this duo both layered together for a quick but effective daytime look. This combo gives the perfect pink tint that has been on trend, but the shimmer overlay helps to add a coppery tone to the mix - keeping you from looking pink-eye-ish. A little goes a long way with these products (the pigmentation is incredible) and they blend flawlessly.
Elizabeth & James Nirvana White : An old favorite I repurchased the other weekend. I picked up the tube while browsing through Sephora and instantly remembered why I loved it so much. Last summer it was just about the only scent I wore and I used up my whole tube. I decided to snag it again and couldn't be happier.
Tom Ford Cream Cheek Color 'Pink Sand'* : Another repeat offender from Instagram and the blog. This cream cheek product is hands down the best one I own. The way that it blends in is almost foul-proof. It can be layered up to build color or just worn as a sheer wash. The pink also has a hint of golden highlight running through it, making it the perfect summer blush.
Essie Polish 'Find Me An Oasis' : My good friend Dani (who is my nail twin for life) gifted this gorgeous shade to me for my birthday. She knows as much as I love a great vampy/dark nail, I also can't resist light blue/mint shades. This color is much lighter than some of it's other counter parts (like Bikini So Teeny) and gives off an icy, cool finish.
