May Favorites

Hello Readers : )

This past month, school as finished up and so the following favorite beauty products, I wore during the first three weeks and have been really enjoying them. : )

Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in 003
This is a very affordable setting powder that I use to set my concealer as well as all over the face. Its great, not great to use to have extra coverage, but is a great drugstore powder. 

Milani's Baked Blush in 01 Dolce Pink  
This is an amazing drugstore blush, in a very lovely pink shade. I think this is a great blush for everyday; its not too shimmery but gives a gorgeous glow to the cheeks and has enough pigmentation to add some color as well. This shade is a warm pink with gold shimmer, perfect for summer time. 

Mac Frost Eyeshadow in Humid

This mac eyeshadow is a frost and I have loved it for the past two months. I apply it over the next favorite, which is a cream eyeshadow, which allows for more green to be seen. Its gorgeous and makes my eyes pop from behind my glasses. : )

Covergirl bombshell Eyeshadow in 305 Color Me Money 
I use this as a base for the mac eyeshadow because I love the effect it gives and adds just a bit more green and sparkle. On its on, its not that great, the pigment fading over a couple of hours. 

L'Oreal Colour Caresse in Violet Chiffon 
This is a gorgeous spring color. This product is like a lip butter, very easy to apply and feels nice on the lips. The color is almost identical to the color on the packaging, being a warm purple color. Its fun, affordable, and easy to apply and great for summer! :)

Parlor Moisturizing Sea Salt Spray
I received this product as a sample from birchbox and have finally have found the best sea salt spray. I purchased a full size and am super happy that I did. Its great to use to add texture to my hair and doesn't make my hair feel greasy or look too shiny. The one downside of this product is the smell. Not very appealing but it doesn't last on my hair, so its not a big problem.

Non Beauty Favorites


Across the Universe by Beth Revis 
I finished this book this past month and am now onto the second of the trilogy. I found this book very to be very interesting and the society is unique. The beginning is a bit slow but that is to be expected with the first of a trilogy and can honestly say that once things start happening, it became hard to put the book down. I definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a young adult, sci-fic novel, with little romance. (the romance isn't in your face and is not part of the main plot)


A Single Man
This is a 2009 film directed by Tom Ford and stars Colin Firth, Matthew Goode, and Julianne Moore.
This movie was very different to what I normally watch but I am very glad I watched this movie. You can read the synopsis of the movie here for a better idea of what the movie is about since I don't want to give to much away.
The cinematography for movie alone was absolutely stunning. 

That is it for my monthly favorites. Thank you for reading : )
