May Favorites 2013

Where has this month gone?!? I can't believe it's already June! To be honest, I haven't been using that many products religiously this month, it really felt like I was using something different each day. I've also been trying out a lot of new products this month which I want to feature in separate posts. But I have managed to scrap a few things that I've used frequently in May :).

1. Michael Todd - Tropical Fruit Enzyme Exfoliant Scrub: I have been trying out several Michael Todd products lately and this one would have to be my favorite. It's the best facial scrub I have ever used. It's gentle but at the same tough rough enough to get the job done. It's quite concentrated in terms of exfoliating, which is what I look for in a scrub. It also smells pleasant and makes my skin feeling really nice and smooth.

2. Chanel - Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil (shade 30 Brun Naturel): I remember getting this years ago, when I got my makeup done for prom. I needed something for my brows and I was recommended this brow pencil. By no means is it the best nor probably the cheapest, but it does the job and does it quickly. I also love that it comes with a spoolie on the other side of the pencil :).

3. Clarins - Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector (shade 05): I have been trying this oh so raved product for a few weeks now but I still haven't made up my mind on it. I will definitely have a full review on it in the future once I've tested it out some more. I tend to use it when I want a very natural soft pink lip.

4. Benefit - Coralista: I forgot how much I love this blush. It truly is one of a kind and definitely something worth splashing out on. It's just the perfect shimmery coral that gives your cheeks a nice warm glow. I will definitely be continuing to use this through out the end of spring and summer time! Full review and swatches here.

5. Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in 'Candy Apple': This is just the perfect day time red. It's not too strong but definitely adds a gorgeous bright red color to your lips. It's also super moisturizing and leaves a nice stain on the lips over time. It looks especially beautiful when paired with denim clothing.

6. Rimmel- Apocalips in 'Luna': I have finally gotten my hands on the Rimmel Apocalips and I have to say, they are just as amazing as everyone says. They are ridiculously pigmented, to the point where you only need one thin layer of this stuff. Any more layering, and you can risk looking like a clown. They're like a lipstick, lipgloss, and lipstain combined. I've been wearing the shade 'Luna', which is a nice peachy color. Full review and swatches to come in the future.

And there you have it, my monthly favorites :). I have a lot of new reviews coming up in June, so stay tuned! 


  1. Love your favourites for this month. I have been dying to get my hands on coralista! However I am not the biggest fan of the apocalips lip glosses. I know shocker, I just never wear mine anymore :(


  2. I have the Michael Todd Face mask but haven't had a chance to try it out yet!! You have a lot of amazing products here, including one of my favourites Coralista!


  3. Coralista is next on my wish list. I love the benefit bronzers and blushes. Hoola and Dallas are amazing too :) the reckon lip butters are gorgeous!
