May Favorites

Hiiiii friends!

It’s that time of the month again for me to do my favorites blog post. Guys, SOOOO much has been going on in the month of May!!! From finishing up my junior year in college, graduations, work, holidays, and sending off my boyfriend to Tupelo for his first REAL job as a news reporter, my life just hasn’t STOPPED. 🙂 After all the changes, there is something that has stayed constant: my love for blogging to YOUUUU GUYS.  With that being said, lets get started with my all time favorites for this month.

Hair

My favorites for hair products this month would have to be Herbal Essences Volumizing Hairspray. This stuff is my absolute love affair. I have tried so many different hairsprays, and I absolutely LOVE this one.  Not only does it have a very nice scent and great hold, but it also doesn’t leave your hair feeling crunchy. I ran out today and had to run to the drugstore to pick up another can. And that’s right my friends, IT’S CHEAP! I got mine for $3.99 at Walgreens.

My next two beauty favorites for the month of May would have to be:

1. Covergirl’s Clump Crusher Mascara

I told you guys that I purchased this recently in my ULTA haul blog post, but I hadn’t been able to try it.  The story behind me buying this mascara was that I originally wanted to try out the Rocket mascara by Maybelline, and the cashier lady insisted that I try Clump Crusher before I tried the Rocket.  I took her advice, and I’m so glad that I did take it.  It goes on very smoothly and wet (which I like in a mascara). It separated, lengthened, and volumized  my lashes beautifully.  I also got the water-resistant formula just so it wouldn’t smudge, and it passed the test.

Will I repurchase? YES, YES, YES!

2.  Estée Lauder’s Day Wear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Creme

I got a sample of this creme in my Estée Lauder gift this month, and I have been using it as a daily moisturizer before I put my make-up on and after I have washed my face.  It’s great for your skin, and it also contains SPF 15 which is great for a base under your foundation to protect your beautiful skin from the sun. 🙂  It also fights against sun damage and aging skin.  I enjoyed this creme and will repurchase.

Favorite DIY of the month

As I was getting my daily dose of all of my YouTube subscriptions, I came across Amarixe’s Beauty Vlog on how to hombre your nails. I thought I would give it a try, and her advice worked. I loved the finished product, and I will do it again to my nails because I think it’s a very cute, unique way to spruce up your normal manicure.

I used the colors Sealed with a Kiss by Sally Hansen, Pink Friday by OPI, Tart Deco by Essie, and Sea by Sally Hansen for the base coat.

Here is Amarixe’s video that I watched! She’s amazing!

Try this nail technique out! I promise you won’t be disappointed. 🙂

What I’m Loving…

IMG_2348

With a new blog on the rise, I thought it was best to talk about the products that I’m LOVING right now!

Favorite Lotion– (an oldie but goodie)

IMG_2365

Esteé Lauder–Pleasures

I got a sample recently when the Lilly Pullitzer deal was going on not too long ago.  Never have tried it before, I put it on my hands and LOVED the smell and the hydration of it.  I’m not too big on strong scented lotions, but this one is just enough to just give a simple fragrance for summer. I will be repurchasing this lotion- FOR SURE!

Favorite Lip Balm

IMG_2371

Maybelline’s Baby Lips

I have heard many of friends go on and on about this product, so I just had to try it out this month.  I got the color “Coral Crush”. It makes your lips feel super soft and it even has a coral tint which is perfect for summer. Sometimes I will skip the lipstick for the day and just wear this lip balm if I am going for a more natural look.

Favorite Make-up Pieces 

IMG_2368

Clinique’s Stay-matte Sheer Pressed Powder (Oil-free)

I have loved this powder for years. It gives me the best coverage and looks natural. I use the the color stay neutral.

Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Blush in the color Wild Sunset Shimmer

IMG_2406

I just recently purchased this, and I think it’s the perfect coral color for summer.

Revelon’s Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen

IMG_2408

I love to use liquid eyeliner, so to make my line even crisper and sharper I love to use this product for its felt tip marker pen. It makes perfect lines and it doesn’t take forever with less mess ups.

Maybelline’s The Falsies Volume Express Mascara

IMG_2407

Many vloggers that I have seen on YouTube rave about this product and just Maybelline mascaras in general.  I think this mascara gives my lashes the best volume and separates each lash well.

Favorite Hair Product

Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Hairspray

This hairspray has excellent hold and an AMAZING fragrance.  I will definitely be repurchasing this hairspray from now on when I go shopping.

Favorite Fragrance

My summer go-to fragrance is Chance by Chanel. This is my second bottle of it (that my wonderful boyfriend gave me ;)). It’s a beautiful, sweet smell, and it lasts ALL DAY LONG!!!

What’s your favorites this month?
