May 2016 Favorites

It’s favorites time again folks!  I can’t believe another month has gone by so quickly, and that it’s time to round up some of my favorite things from the last thirty days.  This month is heavy on the beauty items… here’s what I’ve been loving this May:

Thanks to a recommendation from Katie at A Cup of Tea, I picked up this cream eye-shadow from ELF and fell in love!  It has a super smooth, almost soft, consistency and a rich bronze color.  It lasts all day and does NOT crease as some cream shadows are prone to do.  These Smudge Pots only come in a limited shade range, and the pot could be a little bigger for comfortable use, but since I only paid a whopping THREE DOLLARS for this I have no complaints!

This pretty watch was a gift from my husband for Christmas, and I wear it so much!  I love that it can be dressy or casual, and it goes with almost any outfit.  I have some pink pearl studs that I love to wear with it, and I think rose gold is perfect for summer!  This is my second Relic watch, and they are great quality and last forever.

I was in the market for a new sunless tanner.  I knew I wanted a drugstore option (I’m not spending $30-$40 on a bottle of tanner), and randomly decided to try the LA Tan Sunless Tanner.  I am so pleased with the results!  It has very minimal odor (in fact, my hubby who hates that ‘tanner’ smell, gave his approval), leaves a beautiful color, fades evenly and lasts well.  I would warn that this is not for sunless tanner “newbies”… the mousse dries quite fast, and must be applied smoothly and quickly!  But the finished result is a professional, natural looking tan.

I won’t talk about this too much, as I wrote a full review on these last week, but these have definitely been a favorite!  The color lasts all day long, even overnight if not removed, and the gloss keeps my lips moisturized all day!  This is the perfect option for long workdays or all day events.  You can read my detailed review of these products here.  The color below is Aussie Rose.

This line of polishes from Sally Hansen is really starting to become a favorite!  I would not compare these to a salon gel manicure… they will not last that long.  But I usually get a solid week out of this polish, where most others will chip with 3-4 days.  This shade Red Eye is just the perfect summer red!  It contains enough blue tones to look good on my fair skin, and is still bright and vibrant.  I am planning on this being a much used color over the next few months!
