My Late May Favorites!

Now I know that a full week of june has come and gone, but I only started my blog two days ago, so I felt the need to make a post on my may favorites. I feel like these have been consistently used by me and are standout products in my opinion. Enjoy!
The first item in the photo is Benefit's creaseless cream shadow/liner in r.s.v.p. This is such a gorgeous champagne color, and I have without a doubt used it almost every single day this month. It's creamy, very opaque, and just makes your face look a little brighter. The second item in the photo is my MAC blacktrack fluidline. I really do love this stuff, it brightens my eyes up and just makes them look very well defined overall. My only complaint is that it tends to make my eyes itch a bit due to my contacts. I would really like to try out the Bobbi Brown gel liner, but for now, I am really loving this.

These are the face items I found myself gravitating twards during the month of may. On the left we have Nars laguna bronzer, which I have made a pretty decent dent in this month. I love sweeping it in the hollows of my cheeks, my temples, jawline, nose, and chest. For my skintone, this really creates the perfect golden glow. The item on the right is the infamous Nars orgasm blush. It's the perfect peachy pink with gold shimmer running through it. I think this looks especially nice with a little color in my skin, and it seems to go with any look I choose to do. The last item on top is my MAC msf in soft & gentle. This creates a beautiful glow without making you look like a little grease ball.

My lips this month have essentially only come in contact with two products. Those are creme cup lipstick by MAC and a Revlon colorburst lip gloss in orchid. Both of these give me a really natural look, almost mlbb, which I have been really into this month. I picked up the naked palette from urban decay this month and am in love with it. I have created so many different looks with this, and I truly believe it might possibly be a HG product.

Here are the swatches for all of the products. Top row- mac blacktrack fluidline, benefit r.s.v.p.,nars laguna bronzer, and mac soft & gentle. Second row- nars orgasm, mac creme cup, revlon orchid. Last two rows- urban decay naked palette- colors: virgin, sin, naked, sidecar, buck, half baked, smog, darkhorse, toasted, creep, and gunmetal.

I hope you all are doing well and have a wonderful day.
