May Favorites

halfway

Hello, friends! Today I’m going to share some of my favorite beauty products that I used in the month of May. For me, May marked the end of the spring semester and the beginning of summer. It was filled with a lot of stress and some hard days, but also granted me opportunities to spend time with my friends and family. It was also the month in which I tried out a lot of new beauty products, some of which I am going to share with you today. I hope you enjoy!

This body butter is so luxurious-feeling and does a great job moisturizing my skin. It’s got a relatively strong coconut-lime scent that is noticeable throughout the day, so if you don’t like lingering scents, you may not like this product. However, I like that it has a scent and think it’s perfect for summer! This product also has a bit of shimmer to it, so it gives your skin a nice glow.

Victoria’s Secret “Bombshell” Rollerball 

I love this perfume! It’s got a gorgeous, fruity scent that is (again) perfect for the summertime. Victoria’s Secret is known for this perfume and for good reason!

Benefit “The Porefessional” Primer

I am definitely late to the game for this product–it’s been around for a while and I am happy that I’ve finally trying it. It feels light on the skin and makes my face feel super soft. This primer also does a great job of making my foundation look smooth and keeping it on all day. I just have the travel size for right now, but I’m thinking about upgrading to the full size. We shall see!

Wet n Wild Highlighter in “Precious Petals”

I love this highlighter! It’s got a beautiful, peachy-gold shimmer to it and is really soft and pigmented. I add this to the tops of my cheek bones for an extra glow.

Milani Baked Blush in “Coralina”

This has been my go-to blush this month and for the majority of the spring season! It’s a super pigmented coral shade,  gives a fresh look to the face, and lasts all day! I’m always impressed when I check my makeup and see that this blush is still on my face. While this product looks glittery when swatched, it gives a natural glow when I apply it. You don’t even really need a highlighter with this product!

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Bronzer in “Sunkissed”

I’m pretty new to using bronzer, but this product is perfect for adding just a touch of color to my face. It’s not too orange-y and is the perfect shade for an all-over bronzed look. It makes you look like you just got out of the sun! I also appreciate that the formula is really smooth and creamy–it feels like a high end product.

Tartest Pro to Go Eyeshadow Palette

I just purchased this palette this month and I love it! The shades are creamy and super pigmented. I also love that they have a nice scent to them; it makes the shadows feel ultra luxurious. This palette is great for creating an everyday bronze look, but also includes shades that can be used to create a smokey look for a night out. It’s color payoff and versatility make it a must have for me this summer.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what some of your summer beauty favorites are in the comments! I can’t wait to see what June holds. Happy summer!
