May Favorites

Why is it June? Seriously, where is time going? Is this what happens when you get older...time just flies by and you don't know what to do with yourself?

I'm just in awe that it's June. It's been over a year that I've been out of college (I know I keep mentioning that) and it's just like, this is real life now. I'm still going through a quarter life crisis and I think it's going to be like that for a while. The joy of your 20s!!

Whenever I think things are getting better, the universe flips me off and throws me back in my seat, where I started. Did that make sense? Probably not--I'm rambling about nonsense.

The point of this post is my May Favorites!

I have a lot of things I've loved this month--more than any other month I think and I don't know why. Have I had a lot of time on my hands? Maybe.

Most of them are beauty products because what else do I "favorite" all month? No seriously, like what else should I put in my favorites? I'll think of something.

I do have a few random things and I'll be sure to keep better track of "random" favorites (like clothing maybe?) next month!



//PUR Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup: I got this when I went to my Chicago work trip and I've kind of been obsessed. I've been wanting to get into powder foundations for a while because they're easy to apply when you want a light layer of coverage (and are too lazy to get your hands dirty with a BB cream). This gives great coverage and applies on the skin smoothly, for a natural finish. I put a primer underneath, then concealer, and then this foundation and it's been my go to all month. I apply it with my next favorite which is ....

//It Cosmetics Airbrush Smoothing Foundation Brush: I also got this in Chicago and OMG I am OBSESSED. I am actually willingly to spend $50 on this brush set from Ulta because these brushes are giving me life. I don't use brushes for liquid foundation, I'm too addicted to my beautyblender for that nonsense, but for a powder foundation, this buffing brush is perfection. It applies everything evenly and smoothly for a truly airbrush finish. I am beyond in love.

//Porefessional Primer by Benefit Cosmetics: ANOTHER Chicago item (I'm sorry but a beauty conference leads way to lots of products). I had a sample of this product years ago and I was obsessed. It was the first primer I've ever used and I changed the game for me. I've been trying to find primers that live up to this one because I can't bare to spend $30 on a primer, but, after I got this bad boy back in my life, my make-up has not been the same. I notice a severe difference in my skin and how long my make-up lasts when I have this on. I get a lot more compliments on my skin as well. So, naturally, I haven't been wearing any other primer this month. Oh and I will shell out the $30 for this once I run out--it's THAT good. There's a reason it's a cult favorite.

//Covergirl Intensify Me Liquid Liner: When I blogged about the new CoverGirl products a few weeks back, I mentioned that I really loved this eyeliner (and hated the mascara) and the love has stood the test of time. I've been wearing this like crazy and it has reignited my love for liquid liner. It's easy to apply, super black, and stays on all day. The brush is so unique and I think that is also a major reason I love it so much.

//Nivea In Shower Body Lotion: I've gone through three tubes of this lotion in the past 3 months and I'm wondering why I'm just mentioning this now. When I heard about 'in shower' body lotion, I was stunned and curious. It just washes away? I apply it in the shower? How interesting! I got a sample of this in a magazine or something and immediately used it. I went out and bought it the next day. I hate applying lotion when I get out of the shower. I just hate the process of it but I know it's necessary. This makes my life easier. I apply it in the shower, wash it off, and could get out and go about my day. I don't have to wait for it to dry or absorb into the skin--it's fullproof! It also lasts forever on the skin and really makes a difference. My skin is always super soft and smooth after using it. The one downside is that I need to control how much I'm using because like I said, I've repurchased this three times already and usually regular body lotion lasts forever. I will always repurchase though because it's that good!

//Mahogany Teakwood Candle from Bath & Body Works: My little had this in her room up at school and whenever I visited, I would spend a good amount of the day smelling this candle. IT SMELLS LIKE FREAKING ABERCROMBIE!!!!!!!!! I am not kidding you--it smells like Abercrombie cologne, it smells like a hot boy and I almost cried tears of joy when I finally ordered it. I haven't been using any other candle in my room/house the past month and I'm addicted. I will have this candle forever and ever--I will spend any amount of money on it. It is INCREDIBLE! GO OUT AND BUY IT AND MAKE YOUR HOME SMELL LIKE HOT MEN.

(Was that aggressive? I don't even care. I'm obsessed)

//Horoscopes: I've been obsessed with horoscopes and astrology for a while but this month, I became obsessed. Maybe because I'm just looking for answers to a question I don't even know but I was addicted this month. Maybe because Mercury is in retrograde and I just became fascinated with astrology? I don't know but I was googling everything this month having to do with my horoscope. I use the Daily Horoscope app on the iPhone and I have to say, its scary accurate sometimes. (PS I'm a Sagittarius)

So that is it! My favorite for the month of May! What did you love this month? Tell me in the comments!

Also, are you obsessed with astrology? Lets talk about it :)
