May Favourites

It's time for another monthly favourites post! Sorry I've been slacking on posts this week. I started my job at Target and worked 7 out of the past 8 days for 8.5 hours a day so I've been quite exhausted after work every day. But this week I only work 3 shifts so I should be posting more!

Beauty Secrets Acetone Nail Polish Remover // My first favourite is this acetone nail polish remover I got from Sally's. I had run out of the previous nail polish remover I was using so I went to Sally's to get this! It's a moisturizing formula so it doesn't dry out my cuticles too bad and it has a slightly fruity sweet scent!

Bath & Body Works Espresso Bar Candle // My favourite candle this month has been my Espresso Bar candle! It smells like you're in a coffee shop and is so delicious. I don't drink coffee but I love the smell of it!

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation // For summer time I wanted to try a new foundation with SPF in it! I would've continued using Revlon Nearly Naked because of how light it feels, but it doesn't have SPF! This foundation has SPF 20! It also has fantastic coverage and great lasting power. I really like this foundation so far! And I love that it has a pump!

NYX Blushes in Peach and Taupe // I got these blushes this month and I have literally used them every single day since I got them. Peach is such a pretty matte pink blush. I use a small duo-fibre brush to apply it so it doesn't go on too bright and can build up the colour to what I want! And Taupe is a fantastic contouring shade!

NYX Single Eyeshadow in True Taupe // I also got this eyeshadow this month and it has quickly become a staple in my eyeshadow routine. It works amazingly at blending out any deep crease colour and looks lovely smudged along the lower lashline for subtle definition!

Elf Cream Eyeliner & Angled Eyeliner Brush // I've begun using cream eyeliner this month since I got this one from Elf and it really is fantastic. The brush makes application really easy and I can make precise lines and sharp wings! I really, really love this eyeliner.

NYX Slide On Pencil in Azure // I love using this eyeliner to pop some colour along the lower lashline. Especially when I wear gold eyeshadow on my eyelids! It makes for such a pretty, summery look!

Marc by Marc Jacobs iPhone Case // I forgot to include this in the group photo above of everything, but I got this phone case this month and I am so, so in love with it. I don't think it's a real, authentic Marc Jacobs iPhone case, but I don't mind because I got it for only $5 on eBay! It feels like really nice quality and it's so cute!

That about wraps up my monthly favourites for May! What have some of your favourites been this month?


  1. You did not get NYX Taupe -______________- it's been on my list for legitimately MONTHS but I just don't want to order off the site for just that

    1. Ugh it's SO good! I'm already obsessed. I got it a while back when Cherry Culture did a 40% off NYX sale! So worth it!
