May 2014 Faves

Hi pretties, I know that this post is way late, but I thought I’d still update you of what I have been using this past month. Of course, I have still been using the same old stuff that I have indicated in my previous favorites but if you know me, there’s always something new. Here are the ones that I’ve been loving so far.

HAIR

May 2014 Faves
Bare Naturals The Mane Event Nourishment Hair Mask

I got this from my April 2014 Glamourbox and ever since I got it, I have been loving it! It makes my hair feel really soft yet volumized. Not a lot of hair masks can do that. At least in my case. Moisturize & give your hair that oomph, at the same time? Oh, and this smells so good. I remembered, I compared the scent of this one to those ‘Kisses’ and it does smell like that before you put it on your hair. But once applied, the scent changes to something. I still love the smell no matter what. It leaves my hair soft and smooth, with as I’ve mentioned, a hint of volume.

SKINCARE & BODY

May 2014 Faves
Burt’s Bees Daisy White Moisturizing Cream &
The Body Shop White Musk EDT

I got my Burt’s Bees Daisy White Moisturizing Cream at the beginning of May and when I tested it I had positive results. I loved it right away. It’s very moisturizing. It’s a bit on the heavier side, but it got rid of all my dry spots. Among the entire line, this is my favorite. I’ll be reviewing this line soon.

Lastly, I have been using my The Body Shop White Musk EDT since December last year. I don’t even know why I didn’t update you guys about this, but it’s been my favorite. Whenever I’m about to run errands, this is the EDT I wear. It has a sweet subtle, musky scent, and I love it because the longer I have it on, the more noticeable I find it. I don’t know if it’s just me, lol. I just love it to bits.

FACE

May 2014 Faves
ZA True White Liquid Foundation & Chanel CC Cream

These two are the ones that I have been using alternately this past month. It was really hot last month that wearing a heavier/thicker foundation was not really an option for me so I opted to use these two. They’re one of the most lightweight yet buildable foundations I have ever used.

CHEEKS

May 2014 Faves
Clinique Cheek Pop in ‘Peach Pop’ &
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in ‘Radiant Magenta’

I have been so in love with thee two blushes! They’re amazing. True, you can never go wrong with peachy shades. Now, that I compare them side by side, they’re quite similar but ‘Radiant Magenta’ gives me that beautiful glow perhaps due to the tiny golden specs in it. While, ‘Peach Pop’ gives me that diffused airbrushed finish.

EYES

May 2014 Faves
Essence Gel Eyeliner in ‘Midnight in Paris’
& L’oreal Lash Out Butterfly Mascara

You pretties know that I am not fond of gel liners, I hate them. But Joyce used a gel liner on my niece and she did her eyes beautifully (as always). I thought to myself, I really have to get into that bandwagon. I bought this one because I’ve been hearing so much about it. I loved it instantly. It glides on smoothly, it’s PITCH BLACK, oh and it doesn’t smudge. It’s like Wet & Wild’s minus the drying up and the crappy packaging.

Then this mascara, the L’oreal Lash Out Butterfly Mascara. I love this mascara, but the smell! Ooh! It has a strong chemical scent that whenever I use it, I had to not breathe. Take note, that I’m not exaggerating. I don’t mind cosmetics with a hint of chemically-scent, but this one is a bit overpowering. Other than that, this one gives me great results and I’ve often been asked whether I’m wearing false lashes whenever I use this. So, whatever, I still love it.

LIPS

May 2014 Faves
MAC Matte Lipstick in ‘Please Me’ &
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me in ‘The Morning After’

These two have been my go to lippies for the past month and even to this very day. I don’t know what’s up with me that I don’t like wearing bold statement lippies (except last June 1st where I just decided to wear ‘Kooky’ from MUA) but regardless, these two are definitely my ‘MLBB’ shades and I can’t get enough of these two. I’m definitely sad that ‘The Morning After’ is only a limited edition. I hope I can grab me some backups.

NAILS

May 2014 Faves
China Glaze Nail Polish in ‘Side Saddle’
& Girl Stuff Nail Polish in ‘Orange’

Girl Stuff for my fingernails and China Glaze ‘Side Saddle’ for my toes.


So those are my favorite products for the month of May. Told you there’s nothing much new. Yes, I’ve been using makeup but the ones that I have been using a lot are the ones that I’ve mentioned tons of times already. Aside from those, these are the ones that are what I refer to as “new”. Oh well, how about you? What are your favorite products for the month of May? Let me know.

    Uy, White Musk is also one of my all-time favorite scents from The Body Shop, next to Apple Blossom which they have discontinued a few years back.

    • Aww, I wish I can smell that Apple Blossom. I think TBS scents smell really good, lol. I’ve been thinking about coming back and getting more EDTs pero I don’t want to have a lot of it baka di ko naman magamit, lol.

    I love the hourglass ambient blush, the color looks so flattering and pigmented. Where did you get it and for how much?
    I also got the Happy skin lippie in Crushing on you, but sadly i’m not happy with the color payoff, It’s too pale, i looked liked a zombie when i wear it. Too bad I did not try it on before buying, cause i’m not really comfortable trying out tester lipstick. I might try the Morning after, cause that’s the color that i really want, good thing you swatched it on your previous blogs.

    • I bought it from TheMakeoverShop @ IG. Aww, sayang naman. Me too, I feel kinda iffy using testers. Hanggang swatch lang ako, lol.

  • Wow, Yette, looks like you had a lot of “pinks/peach” faves this month. Hehe. I swatched the ZA foundation and I liked it. I won’t buy it now cause I have a lot to use up. Doh!

    • Yes, I am very much in to pinks & peaches this past couple of months. Haha

  • Ang daming pink, so kyot! BTW, that China Glaze polish looks really nice. I just have to ask, okay ba yung Girl Stuff polish, hindi ba madaling mag-chip?

    • Yes, Girl stuf has nice quality. Hindi naman sha mashadong madali magchip. ok lang

  • Ohh if the Burts Bees Moisturizing Cream is on the heavy side I may try using it at night first. Love the shade of your MAC lipstick!

  • prncessjaq11

    Where did you buy your Hair mask Miss Yette? And also your Shut up and Kiss me Lipstick? ☺️

    • I got it from my previous Glamourbox. The Shut Up & Kiss Me Lipstick is from Happy Skin which are usually available at some Plains & Prints and Beauty Bar boutiques.

      • prncessjaq11

        Yay! Thank you for replying Miss Yette!

  • DearKaaat .

    That hair mask from Bare Naturals seems like a good product to try! I’ve been meaning to add a hair mask to my hair care routine so thank you for sharing this! I’m also looking forward to trying out products from Burt’s Bees Daisy White skin care range. Thank you for sharing your May favs, you photograph amazingly!

    • You’re welcome and thank you, Kat!

  • I’m loving Mac lippies to lately! Tips nga how to take photos like yours haha I like it!

  • Marseille Frances Bañas Talaca

    The Hourglass blush looks so pretty and I bet it’s also expensive. I do love make up but I really don’t wear make up that often.. I’m weird I know coz I tend to hoard for a lot of stuff but ending up not using it or giving it away to my sister which is just fine I’ve been using a lot my Miners Matte Factor Lip Cream in Peach and Hot Pink. Have you tried that? It’s like the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams..

    Sana soon..
