May Favorites!

It's already time for May favorites. This month seemed to fly by. Anyways, here are my monthly favorites.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation 
This month I finally tried the L'Oreal True Match Foundation. I'm probably the last person ever to buy it. I'm almost upset that I didn't try it sooner. I always put off buying it because it doesn't have a pump (it annoys me so much that the packaging in Europe is so much nicer and has a pump). I like that it gives me light to medium buildable coverage. It has a natural finish so my skin doesn't look too matte or too dewy. It feels really light on the skin as well. I understand why it's well loved in the beauty community. I also love that there are a variety of shades for various skintones and undertones so you're guaranteed to find one that works for you.

L'Oreal True Match Concealer
I rediscovered my L'Oreal True Match Concealer. It's a good all around concealer. You can use it to cover redness, blemishes and undereye circles and it looks natural. It never looks cakey. It has a brush tip applicator making it easy to apply and you the right amount of product comes out every time.

ELF Small Stipple Brush
I've loved using my ELF Small Stipple Brush to apply my L'Oreal foundation. It buffs everything in nicely and you don't extra product on your skin. It doesn't leave any lines either. If you want your foundation to have a natural finish I highly recommend using a stippling brush.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso
I've been hunting down this blush for the past year. It was always sold out at my local Walmart. I finally got my hands on it this past month. I love it! I would describe the shade as peach with gold shimmer. It gives a beautiful healthy glow to your cheeks. The texture of the blush reminds me of the MAC Mineralize Blushes. I've heard people say that it's a dupe for NARS Orgasm but it's really not. Luminoso looks orange compared to Orgasm. I will say that they both give a similar effect on your cheeks but the colors are different. I love them both.

got2b Guardian Angel 
This is my favorite heat protectant spray. It's called a gloss finish flat iron balm. It really works. When I use this my hair looks so shiny and it really comes straighter when I dry it. Even though it's supposed to be used in conjunction with a flat iron you can still use it when curling your hair or even just with a hair dryer.It has a pleasant scent as well.

The Body Shop Vineyard Peach Body Butter
I love the Body Shop's body butters but this one is probably my favorite scent. I love peaches so smelling like peaches is pretty cool. It's really hydrating and soothing.

  1. Yeah, I've basically given up on finding Milani blushes in Walmart--I use use Well.ca now, and it's cheaper on the sit! Luminoso and Elf's small stipple brush have also been my favourites this month, and I should really start watching Orphan Black, just so I can spot the Toronto filming locations!
