My Favorite Things! ♥ May 2013

01 June 2013


Happy June everyone! June is one of my favorite months of the year because it means that summer is finally here! That means beautiful weather, more time to spend with friends & family, and best of all...more blog posts! 

Before I get too excited over all the fun stuff coming up in June, I thought I would give you guys a quick look at all my favorite things from the month of May. As usual, it's a pretty random mix of makeup, fashion, and various other things that I've been loving this month! 

So with that being said, let's get started!


Beauty:

Wet n' Wild Color Icon Collection Eyeshadow Trio in Walking On Eggshells- Oh my gosh, I can't even express how in love I am with this little eyeshadow trio! The shadows are buttery smooth and super pigmented, and the colors are absolutely beautiful. The soft pink lid color is actually one of the best dupes I have found for Stila Kitten Eyeshadow, which is my all-time favorite. And did I mention this little palette is $3? Needless to say, I'm pretty excited about it!


Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder- I know setting powder isn't the most exciting thing in the world, but it can really make the difference between a shine-free face and a complete oil slick. This powder by Rimmel is one of the best I have found for keeping makeup in place all day, and the best part is it's really affordable as well! The only thing I'm not crazy about is the packaging. There is no way to lock the plastic lid in place, so if you tip it over at all or carry it around in your makeup bag, the lid will just pop right off. I solve that minor issue by keeping this powder at home and using my Maybelline Dream Matte Powder for on-the-go touch-ups. 


Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Liquid Liner-  I think I may have finally found a liquid liner that beats my e.l.f. Eyeliner Pen! What I love about this liner is that, like the name suggests, it has a super precise applicator that can produce anything from a pencil-thin line to something a lot more bold and dramatic. As you guys probably already know, I am absolutely horrible with typical liquid liners. So if I can use this one, anybody can!



Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso- I kept hearing other beauty gurus absolutely raving about how amazing Luminoso was, so this month I decided to finally give it a try! And let me tell you, it is definitely worth the hype! The color is a gorgeous shimmery peachy-pink that gives my skin the most incredible natural flush. If you're one of the few hold-outs like I was, you really need to go out and get this blush...like right now.


Fashion: 

Victoria's Secret Pink Wide Neck Crew in Coral- I have seriously been living in this pullover all month! The weather around me has been super random lately, constantly jumping from cold and rainy to hot and humid, then back again. So this lightweight crew has been absolutely perfect, and crazy adorable as well! 


"Love" Signature Bracelet- Okay, how cute is this bracelet?! I love that it matches everything like a basic gold bangle, yet the script running through it adds such a girly, fun touch! I've literally worn it almost every single day this month, and at this rate it may end up being a June favorite as well!


Movie:

The Great Gatsby- So I actually went into the movie super skeptical, just because I love the book so much and I was afraid that they would ruin it by changing too much or trying to modernize things. However, I have to admit that they did an amazing job! The party scenes were absolutely breathtaking, they really made you feel like you were right in the middle of the action! And of course, Leonardo DiCaprio in a tux certainly doesn't hurt!



And those are all of my favorites for this month! I'd love to hear about all of your favorite things in the comments down below!

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Daphne! I keep looking at that palette, but the greens and grays on the right side of it aren't really my favorite. I may have to get it just for the pretty colors on the left though! :)

  2. ...you are making me want to try this blush. And I have the same matte powder and could not agree more about the packaging. Total bummer, but everything else about it is great.

    1. Hi Blair!

      I got my bracelet at Charming Charlie as a set of 3. One is silver, one is gold, and one is charcoal gray. However, because Charming Charlie doesn't have an online store right now, I linked to Windsor. They had the bracelet in rose and yellow gold when I last checked. So it depends where you shop! :)

  22. I am LOVING your 'MY FAVORITE THINGS!' monthly posts! I love to get your fresh take on what's hot & happening. Is this something you do monthly? I follow you on Facebook and Pinterest as well, but I have only seen March, April, and May '13 featured. I would LOVE to see this feature more! Is that something you can do (or have done)? Thanks for being such an awesome go-to guide XOXO
