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.
2) Select shadows from Urban Decay's BoS 4
(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
^ 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.
Urban Decay's 'Missionary' on the lid as a base
UD's 'Omen' on inner corners
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?!
