May Favorites

Hello my dears! Today I’m sharing with you my favorite beauty items from May.

Morphe Brushes Jaclyn Hill Favorites Eyeshadow Palette: I’ve loved experimenting with all the shades in this palette! It’s definitely the largest palette I have and all the colors are so pretty. The quality is pretty good as well.

NYX Highlight & Contour Pro Palette: After struggling a bit with the contour shades, I’ve finally figured out how to make them work for me! The key is to use a light hand and a stipple brush in order to blend them out easily. I’ve loved using the taupe shade to contour and the yellow or cream matte shade to set my undereye concealer.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (Fair) After hearing so much about this concealer I finally bought it, and of course I love it. I think it beats out my Instant Age Rewind Concealer! It’s just so creamy and brightening.

Mascara Combo: Maybelline Lash Sensational & Covergirl Full Lash Bloom mascaras: Shout out to Bree of Always, Bree for this mascara combo! I read about it on her blog and it made her lashes look so great! It works really well for me too- I apply a coat of the Lash Sensational first to build volume, and then lengthen with the Full Lash Bloom.

Left: Jordana Easyliner Sedona Red Right: Milani Matte Passion

Lip Combo: Jordana Easyliner Sedona Red & Milani Matte Passion lipstick: Matte Passion has been such a fun color to wear out. I pair it with Sedona Red because it’s the most similarΒ lip liner color I have to it, even though it’s much less orange and more red than Matte Passion. It works out though, because it adds some definition to my lips.

And that’s all! Do you have a favorite mascara or lip combo? Just one never seems to do it for me haha πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for reading!

  1. I’ve been wanting to try this contour palette for so long! I’ve heard so many mixed reviews on it though, can’t decide if I want to spend the $25 on it though. 😦

    • Yeah I had a lot of trouble blending out the contour shades until I figured out I had to use a stipple brush for them. I have a full review at lippieobsession.wordpress.com/2015/05/13/review-nyx-highlight-contour-pro-palette/ if you want to check it out πŸ™‚ It is a bit pricy so I would say wait for coupons/sales if you are still curious about it πŸ™‚

  2. I love layering mascaras and hearing about other people’s combos too! I normally stick with CoverGirl ones – I like to layer the yellow LashBlast (length) with the purple one (Fusion).
    Nice list – a little of every part of the face basically! Only thing missing is blush though… one of my favourites! πŸ˜€

  3. I’m not into contours and bronzers, but I want to try that NYX contour palette. I hope to get my hands on it when I go to the U.S. πŸ˜€ I didn’t like the Covergirl Full lash bloom mascara because its bristles are too poky, but I guess it’s good for separating lashes. The fit me concealer is also in my May Favourites! πŸ˜€

  4. I love the Morphe Brushes palette too! I never would have thought to use the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara with the Covergirl Lash Bloom and I have both of those! πŸ™‚ xo
