May favorites & a simple, colorful look!

So alas, SOMEHOW, May is already at an end. This summer is already flying by :/
But with the month ending I figured I'd share with you some of my favorite finds or products from this month in case any of you might like to try them! :)

1) Maybelline's Baby Lips in 'Quenched'

My lips have been so chapped lately, and Burt's Bees just wasn't cutting it. So I spotted this in Walmart & grabbed it up. I had seen a commercial or two for it, but didn't know if it would actually work or not. However, it only cost like $2 or $3 bucks, so what the hey. Anyway, this stuff is AWESOME. It boasts 8 hr long hydration for your lips along with some new 'secret' formula with SPF 20. It's also supposed to visibly renew your lips in 4 weeks. I've been using it about that long and I definitely feel/see a difference, so I dub this product legit! and definitely worth buying.

(Baked & Bender are reversed in this picture for some reason...?)

So as most of you know, I'm obsessed with UD and use it on a daily basis, but there's some new shadows that i've just been HOOKED on this month. I've switched up the usual, daily neutral look I do with some different neutral shades that I hadn't really used too much before:
'Skimp' as a base
'Midnight Rodeo'
^ the last 3 I used in the crease

It's super simple, takes 4 minutes to do, and is a great, new neutral look for me. I love 'em!

3) Dove's Go Fresh Bodywash 'Cubumber & Green Tea'

I guess this falls under the umbrella of beauty...?
Anyway, all i can say about this stuff is BUY. IT. I bought this initially because I wanted to try a new brand, but the awesome smell of this body wash makes it stand head & shoulders (pardon the pun) above the rest. I feel like a lot of body washes I've used before I can never smell again once I wash them off. But this stuff not only makes my skin smell great (& moisturizes it, of course) but it permeates the bathroom and my adjacent bedroom, and it just gives this amazing fresh, calming feeling to the rooms AND- in turn- me :)

So there's my favorites for May!
Have any of you tried them?
What do you think?!

Lastly, I wanted to post a quick & easy look I did yesterday. It was inspired by a very similar look that I saw on Pinterest, so it's by no means my own- just something I wanted to try my hand at.

I used:
Urban Decay's 'Missionary' on the lid as a base
UD's 'Omen' on inner corners
UD's 'Jinx'
UD's 'Bender' in outer area of lower lash line

This is a really easy look that business on top & a party on the bottom :party :p
But I really love it, especially because it's a lot more wearable than a lot of looks I do.

What do ya think?!


  1. wow i love this look! urban decay is de-bomb!

  2. I love this as opposed to the rainbow being on your upper eyelid! It's really different and more subtle this way!

  3. So I've heard nothing but bad reviews about the Maybelline baby lips thingies. So you like it eh? I may have to try it now since I "know" you more than the other ppl and I trust your review more than others. If I hate it, I'm coming after you!! =) Love the eye look. (Sorry this is so late, but JUST NOW getting to this post in my reader. Sigh. Sowwie.
