Monthly Favorites / May

Hello beauties! How are you, I really hope everything’s well! I am SO excited that June is now here because I have a few really exciting things going on this month and not to mention that hot summer days will hopefully start to kick in. Having said that, I literally have no idea where did May go, I feel like I say this every month but seriously – May just slipped away so quickly! During May I wasn’t feeling like wearing much eye makeup and I was concentering mostly on my face and lips so these are the majority of the products that I was in-love with! Hope you enjoy! :)

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation ($45 /£32)

I’m going to start with the most exciting product for me this month – the oh-so-famous Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation. I used to use this all the time but for some reason when I ran out I didn’t repurchase it and started using the Revlon Colorstay instead. But since it’s getting warmer now I needed something lighter and so I went ahead and got a new bottle of the Chanel. When I applied it I instantly rediscovered it and loved it all over again! It is SO lightweight, it gives a lovely medium coverage and most importantly it makes my skin look so healthy and glowy (def not shiny though). It applies like charm and feels super luxurious and soft on the skin. I am so happy that I started using it again and I highly recommend checking it out! I know that it is on the pricier side but it’s totally worth it in my opinion because it really is a fantastic product. <3

Too Faced Primed & Poreless Powder ($30)

Continuing with the face basics, for the second month in a row I have been obsessed with the Too Faced Pimed & Poreless Translucent Powder. This stuff is just a.m.a.z.i.n.g!! I won’t go into much details cuz I have a full review on it but I love how finely milled and light it is. It adjusts to my skin tone and minimizes the appearance of pores, which is really important for me. It mattifyes the skin without making it look powdery or cakey and sets my makeup for hours! LOVE it and can’t recommend it enough for, especially for the summertime!

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate ($30)

Over the past few months I’ve grown up to be a total bronzer girl. I’ve always used a little bit in the hollows of my cheeks but now I love to sculpture my entire face and to give it a nice healthier look. My best friend in this has been the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate. This little gem it completely matte, which is my first requirement for an everyday bronzer (who likes looking like a disco ball during the day anyway) and it doesn’t look muddy or orang-y at all! It applies really easily and a huge bonus for all of you chocolate lovers out there – it smells like real cocoa nom nom! <3 The only thing I am not too sure about this is the shade. I got the light one because as you know I am super pale and it works fine now but I am afraid that as I start getting tanner for the summer it will not show up anymore cuz it’s really light. So if you have darker skin I definitely think that you should get the darker version and I even consider getting it myself for the warmer months. :)

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Nova (£5,99)


As for the lips, I have been wearing a lot my Rimmel Apocalipsin Nova. It is such a gorgeous shade, which is the perfect pink for my lips. It is a nice cooler toned Barbie pink, which compliments my skin tone beautifully (or at least I hope so haha). I am a massive fan of the whole Apocalips range because their formula is outstanding. Being lip lacquers they are a nice mixture of lipstick and lip gloss and they feel super lovely on the lips. They are not drying and the color pay off is insane! Oh they are also pretty long lasting and stay on for ages! If you’d like to see me wearing Nova click here. (:

Essie – Fiji ($8 / £7,99)

May was a month when I feel like I was changing my nail polish ever other day, which is usually not typical for me. This time though I was going crazy, there were so many fab shades that I wanted to wear but I think the highlight of the month has to be Essie – Fiji. Every time I wore it I got tons of compliments on how classy and sophisticated it looked! And I personally couldn’t agree more - it is such a beautiful and feminine shade that I feel like every woman has to have in her collection. It is a really pretty milky pale pink color with no shimmer of glitter in it and I think it would look gorgeous on any skin tone and will also make you feel super tanned! <3

Overall, May was a really lovely month beauty wise and I hope you enjoyed my favorites. I definitely recommend checking them all out now let the summer days roll in! <3 Have a fab week and I’ll see you soon!

Have you tried any of these products before? What product have you been loving lately? :)

Lots of love,

  32. I love Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation and Essie's Fiji looks like a very pretty color! Can you do a post on how you take such great pictures? (the camera you use, how you get such great natural lightning [what time of the day, where you take your pictures]) I have a great camera but I find that my pictures don't turn out nearly as great as yours do (a lot times I find it's the lighting) so maybe a post like that would help? :)

  34. The bronzer looks great, if you're looking for another matte one, I'd recommend Benefit's Hoola. That was in fact my first bronzer and I was equally blown away by it as you are with yours. It doesn't have a great smell, though, but I love it anyways, it's not an overly dark shade, either.

  37. That foundation has been on my "to investigate and probably buy" list for a while now! It sounds amazing! I am in LURVE with my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, too! I love everything about it. I am typically NW20 but I bought the darker version because it wasn't that much darker than the Milk Chocolate and I figured I'd just use a light hand. It works great - perfectly natural sun-kissed glow! As a fellow pale chick, I definitely think you could rock the darker shade throughout the summer! Great favorites post! :D
