May Favorites 2016 | Beauty & Lifestyle

It May be a Favorite!

Happy Monday! I wish I could say happy June like always when I start this post but it has been June for almost 2 weeks now so I kind of spoiled it. This month’s favorites post is kind of late due to me taking a semi-hiatus due to a family death. I made it a goal to do all 12 months this year so I am still going to stick to that commitment at least it is only late instead of not posting it at all and end up breaking my record. Since I was all scrambled around last month I unfortunately have to make it short because I didn’t have too many favorites but I knew sooner or later that will happen. My routine was all messed up and I was going places every minute and I had so many family members come to town for the funeral it was a chaos to remembered what I used and what I loved with all the stress. I did have a cold too this month plus my hip injury so that played into my problems as well. In the end May wasn’t my month but we all have those months especially when something major happens. I guess I should get on with my babble and finish my May monthly summary as it seems this paragraph all of a sudden turned into one without me realizing it. Onto chapter 5 of my monthly favorites and what I loved in the month of May.


Wet N Wild Angels in Aubergine Eyeshadow Palette

First up on my favorites was an eyeshadow palette from Wet N Wild called Angels in Aubergine. During the first of the month I was into adding the pink shade and having an all pink makeup look. It was especially perfect for concert makeup so I quite enjoyed playing with the colors in this palette. It is quite pigment and for the price it was so amazing so it made it in my favorites for the month. I have a review on this here if you want to see my thoughts and swatches of the colors.

Suesh C219 Concealer

Since I was loving an eyeshadow, I think a concealer will be next up. My skin has been pretty okay at the moment (knock on wood) so I just need some cream concealer under my eyes to conceal my dark circles and it clearly has worked because my pictures have been quite nice. It is the perfect shade and I think I need to do a review on this as it is amazing. I am loving how it blends in and it looks pretty dark and orange but somehow matches me extremely well.

Happy Skin x Pond’s Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippie

Last makeup item is a lippie. I pretty much have all my makeup I’ve been wearing all month long. A little eyeshadow, a flawless base and a nude pink lip. This was a perfect color and I’ve been loving matte lips and colors just like this. It isn’t drying and goes on smooth. It is probably the perfect summer color for me besides a hot pink lip. Also it is so small I can take it anywhere with me. There is also a review I did here with swatches and what it looks like on my lips.


Orly Nail Polish in Swizzle Stick

The summer nail color has come out. I always have to take out my hot pink nail polish especially since it is the perfect color that is bright and matched my swimsuit perfectly that’s why I took it out in the first place. I think it is my holy grail color because it is always makes it way out.

Petroleum Jelly

I guess this had to be added since I use it quite frequently. I put it on my elbows and ankles since the weather can change from hot to cold and me going in and out of an ir condition room to car and then out into the humidity. I was using lotion but my aunt recommended this stuff and I think I quite like it better so I added it in because it is a nice beauty hack and it does wonders for the cuticles as well.


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt // TV Show

My TV show of the month was Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. During the first of the month when nothing much was going on and I was in bed on bed rest trying to let my hip heal I binged watched the whole second season in one whole evening, in one whole sitting, in just a mere couple of hours. I loved season 1 and it was really funny so when I learned season 2 came out I ran (technically limped) to my laptop to open Netflix to begin my night. It was absolutely amazing and I just loved their is a character named after me. I seem to always love the shows that are so hyped up because I end up loving them. If you haven’t watched it you  should because it is a light comedy and of course some twists and is perfect for a quick binge watch. It made me feel better even though I was suffering from my hip pain but I think it made it worse since every time I laughed I would hurt it and strain it some more. Oh well it was fun and I can’t wait for season 3 because the ending was OMG. (don’t worry I won’t say anything and spoil it for you.)

Little Mix // Music

Since I went to their concert in May all I’ve been doing is listening to their album non-stop the whole month. I featured their album in November saying I love the whole thing and can’t get enough of it. I even played the Get Weird album and I mean the physical CD which I bought in my car’s CD player on the way there. I was able to loop it about 3 times before I even got to the concert venue. Even though the Get Weird album is supposed to be a favorite I choose just to have the artists as a favorite instead. The songs I loved the most in May in no particular order since they are all equally loved by me were Salute, Move, Lightning, Hair (again), Grown, Love Me Like You and Secret Love Song Pt. II.

That was it for the fifth part of my monthly favorites. I hope you are enjoying this series. I love doing it and I hope maybe one of these months I can film it like I used to. It was sort of short as I said but it was nice that I got it done and it made me miss setting up blog pictures again and get back into it. I’ve been doing a lot more outfit pictures so I put the beauty pictures on hold because it is so much easier to do outfits right now I feel like. It has rekindle the spark for other kinds of blog pictures though. I think that’s enough for my monthly update technically and hope all of you have a great week ahead of you.

What has kept you busy in the month of May?

    I loved watching Unbreakable too, I thought it was hilarious. The only problem was that I could get the opening song out of my head for ages!!
