This week kind of feels like it flew by! Usually when I have a to-do list as long as my arm, that’s the way I feel – like there’s not enough days in the week to finish everything! haha.
It also feels like May flew by! I can’t believe we’re already halfway through the year!
I started doing the new monthly favorites “series” last month with April Favorites, and they were super popular, so I thought I’d bring it back for May favorites!
I am always trying out new foundations, and this month I’ve got two that I’ve really loved! One is from the drugstore and one is higher-end, so we’ve got both price points covered!
1. Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation – I tried this out because I was searching for a good foundation to use on a bride I had at the beginning of June. It’s high coverage, really good consistency, a pretty wide variety of colors and it lasts a long time. I love this for my skin type – it’s definitely not a light foundation, but if you’re looking for something that will give you a flawless finish, this is perfect! I highly recommend!
2. L’Oréal Infallible Total Cover – I love every foundation in the Infallible line – pro matte, pro glow, and now this one. I tried this out, and, to be honest, just from looking at the packaging, I was a little bit skeptical. I thought it was going to be super mousse-y and show every pore and fine line I have. But, I was so glad to be wrong! This full-coverage foundation gives a flawless finish while being light on the skin! Definitely try this one out!
I’ve mentioned before how much I LOVE this sunless tanner. I am working on a full self-tanning routine post, but I’ve used this so much this past month, that I have to mention it in my favorites, too!
Plus, Loving Tan was so nice to offer all of you guys a free tanning mitt with your mousse purchase when you use the code “xochelsea”.
The tanning mitt really makes a huge difference in the application of self-tanner, so be sure to use that when you check out!
I use the Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Ultra Dark. It has a guide color to it, so you know exactly where you’ve applied it, and I always just let it set in over night and wash off the top guide layer in the morning. It gives the best color, and it’s never orange. It has an olive undertone, so it suits a lot of different skin tones – even my pinky/peach undertoned skin.
I honestly can’t say enough good things about this sunless tanner and brand! This isn’t just a May favorite, it’s a holy grail product!
These matte liquid lipsticks have been my go-tos for the month – I’ve loved the nudey pink makeup look. I’ve pretty much done that every single day this past month.
These three from ColourPop Cosmetics have been on repeat! (& they’re only six dollars a piece!)
Caffeine Matcha Makeup Wipes from First Aid Beauty – these have been SO helpful for when I do my makeup in the mornings. They really do help to wake up your skin and give it a little boost helping it to look better with the makeup on it! I will definitely be buying these again!
I’ve been loving black dresses this month. There’s just something about a black dress in the summer time that just gets me – or maybe it’s that I love black all the time, haha. Either way – these two dresses really stood out to me during the month of May.
This dress I did a post on – and I really do love the fit of this dress! The smock detail at the top is super flattering, and at $69, it’s hard to beat. You can easily dress it up or down! It’s a staple piece.
This maxi is an absolute steal at $20! I got it in this black color and yellow! Both will be coming to the blog soon!
THESE SHOES, THESE SHOES, THESE SHOES. I am so obsessed with these shoes. haha. They’re affordable, they go with everything and they’re so comfy. I can’t say anymore than that. You should run to your Target to get them. Or, just order them online, that’s always a safe bet, too!
I’ve got two Bath and Body Works Candles that I’ve been loving this past month – one is floral and one is more of a fruity-deeper scent, if that makes sense!
Go to your local store, and give them a sniff! They’re so good!
1. Fresh Cut Lilacs
2. Endless Weekend
I hope you have the best weekend! Let me know what your favorites from the month of May were! I always love trying out new things!
All my love!
