Hello Lovelies! Hard to believe May is already over & it's time for another monthly favorites! This month, the theme for me was all about lightweight products & shades of peach & coral. As the temperature starts to climb, I really enjoy a more minimal, effortless makeup look. Hope you enjoy!
Without fail, every morning in May I used this trio of Shiseido Urban Environment Oil- Free UV Protector (review here), Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup (review here), & my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I can see why the Real Techniques Buffing Brush has received such rave reviews. It makes applying any liquid foundation much easier than conventional foundation brushes & creates a seamless, natural finish.
As I mentioned, once the weather starts to warm up, I start to pull out my collection of coral & peach face products. I just love the flattering effect this shade has on the skin & think it looks especially appropriate in the Spring & Summer months. Benefit Coralista is one of my most cherished Summer blushes & I have worn it continuously the last 2 Summers. It is just the most universally flattering, easy to wear coral-pink color. I love how it adds a touch of sheen & luminosity to the skin. Also, I am obsessed with how delicious it smells! MAC's Blush in Immortal Flower, a slightly more peach color, was another May favorite (review here).
As for eyeshadow, my most used product was the limited edition NARS Eyeshadow Trio in Ramatuelle (review here). I think the peachy shades of this trio work perfectly with the coral & pink toned blushes I mentioned. Also, this month I was pleasantly surprised by a drugstore purchase of mine, the Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara. I have never been a fan of Revlon mascaras in the past, but this one far exceeded my expectations! It lengthens, curls & separates the lashes, all while coating them in rich black color. In my opinion, it is a much more affordable dupe for another mascara favorite of mine, Benefit's They're Real (even the brush looks almost identical).
Have you tried any of these products? What makeup or skincare items were you loving in May?
Thanks for reading!
Lots of Love,
