Monthly Faves: May 2013
Before we continue, I just wanna tell you guys that the products that I will be showing you are the things that I have been using all throughout the month of May. You may be seeing some ‘repeat’ products and for that I’m sorry. I don’t want to be redundant, but I don’t want to be dishonest either. I hope you catch my drift.
Anyway, before I continue to babble, here’s my (first) favorites video:

Unfortunately, I only have sample sizes of the first two mentioned products. But they changed my life! Seriously! Cure was able to get rid of the areas where I have really dry/dead skin, and the Banana soap (which I got from my recent Glamourbox was able to eliminate most if not all of the red spots I got all over my face. These products are amazing. The Nivea Baby Smoothy Cream, however, is really great in terms of moisturizing. i use it to moisturize my hands, some parts of my body and sometimes my face (in fact, especially my face).
& Jazzy Cream Foundation in ‘CF-04’
I love this makeup mist. It makes my dry skin luminous and healthy. It doesn’t make it really dewy, because you guys all know that I am not really a fan of that look as well. I’m also loving my Jazzy Cream Foundation. I had this for months but for some reason I stopped using it. Then I saw it again and decided to start using it. I love it because its coverage is very buildable. I no longer need to use a concealer and it lasts all day. It doesn’t cling in my dry patches and I really like it. It doesn’t look cakey on me as well.
I’m not really an eyebrow pencil kind of girl. I prefer eyebrow powders. But this one made the transition easier for me. Now with regard to the Eye of Horus eyeliner, I wasn’t really fan of this eyeliner until recently. When I decided to use it again. I was a fan of my UD Zero eyeliner (the one that came with my Theodora palette. Then I decided to try this one and I loved it.
BDJ included the ‘Hyper Curl’ mascara but before that I wasn’t really paying attention to it. I never thought that it could really hold my curls. Damn!
Obviously, what do you guys expect? This was like my go to eyeshadow palette all throughout the entire month of May. For swatches/details regarding this palette, click here.

I love this blush! Sadly something happened to it. You need to watch the video to find out. But I love it.
I am in love with these three lippies. I can’t stop using CYY, then before I had Chatterbox, I use NYX Antwerp as a more subtle lip color. Then I decide to give in and buy Chatterbox. I LOVE LIPSTICKS! Seriously!
I love that kabuki brush! Seriously, it’s so soft, it’s so dense and it doesn’t shed. Enough said. That VO short shader/eyeshadow brush is just what I needed. I’ll definitely buy a backup. And that Beauty Cosmetics blending brush is very similar to MAC’s 217. Just what I needed as a backup.
I love these three nail colors. They’re vibrant and they’re very ‘summer-y’.
So those are the items that I have been using/loving all through out the previous month. I hope you liked and enjoyed this post and if you’ve been using anything similar to the items that I’ve enumerated above, then let me know! Also, let me know what you’ve been loving this past month. What skin/makeup products have you been using? I would love to discover something new….
Take care y’all! New lipstick review coming right up!
