May Favorites!

Pur Minerals 4-1 Pressed Powder Foundation- I have really been liking this stuff! I am never to crazy about pressed powders, but this is probably my favorite pressed foundation of all time. It has a medium-full coverage, covers blemishes/redness without a problem, and it has skin care ingredients in it, which is supposed to help maintain oilyness through out the day, which I believe it does, since I have really oily skin, and haven't had an issue with this. It feels really light on the skin, which is a plus. The only thing I don't like is the chisel brush you are supposed to use with it from Pur Minerals. It sucks. Do yourself a favor, and just use a kabuki brush it.

Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara- This one, I won't spend forever going on about because I talked about it alot in my last post, it was included in my Ulta Haul. But to sum it up, it's a great mascara. AMAZING for holding a curl, especially in already long/heavy lashes. It has jojoba oil in it to moisturize your lashes, the formula is nice and consistent, doesn't dry or flake, really lifts them and makes them look thicker, and gives a little bit of length as well. Plus I love any mascara brush that has the spiked end. It just makes it way easier to get those lashes in the inner and outer corners.

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Lipgloss in "35MM"- This was also in my Ulta haul from last posts, so I won't talk to much about this one either. Basically, I just love the color. I own nothing like it, I think it's perfect for summer, it's long lasting, and looks good with just about anything. I will post a swatch at the end of this post:)

"Sweet Good Morning Kiss!" by POP beauty- This brand is new to me, and I got sent a couple things to review by them, which is coming up soon! But this one I actually bought, because I loved the other products so much. It's a lip exfoliator, and it has natural sugar grains in it. It has a sponge applicator, and when you twist the bottom of the wand, the product comes out of an opening in the sponge. It feels AMAZING on your lips, and has made a huge difference in mine. It sells for ab out 14.00, but I think you can find it for a little cheaper on amazon. I've really been liking wearing this alone, it leaves a nice shiny gloss looking effect on your lips.

"Girl Meets Pearl" liquid highlighter by Benefit-
I got the mini of this for 8.00 just to try out, and I really do like it. It's a bright pearl color, that I put at the top of my cheeks, and just brightens everything up. Again, i'll swatch it at the end:)

Smashbox Cream Shadow in "Quartz"- This month I discovered Smashbox's Limitless 15 hour Wear Cream Shadows, and the one I bought is called Quartz. They are 19.00 each, and kind of my new best friend. It works great, as a base, and a shadow to wear alone. If I didn't really feel like spending to much time on my eye make up, I would just prime them, put this on alone, and add some eyeliner, voila. Makes for a nice neutral/natural looking eye. This color goes with EVERYTHING. I've used it with both neutrals and brights. It blends easily, and I haven't worn them for 15 hours, but i've worn it for about 10 and I had absolutley no creasing and it stayed vibrant all day, and did not smudge or slide around my eye. These are in NO WAY a dupe for the maybelline color tattoo ones. Yes they are cheaper, and easier to get, but these ones are much better in my opinion, and nothing alike, not even the formulas are similar in any way.

Stila blush in "Seashell" and highlight in "Pacific Coast Highway"- This palette was limited edition last year in Stila's beach collection so i'm not sure if you can still find it. I love the palette, the eyeshadows are gorgeous, but this month I have just been loving the blush and highlighter. I kept telling myself, I would do something with the shadows for a FOTD but I never did. Anyways, the blush is gorgeous! It's been my go-to basically every day this month. It's a pretty, light "peachy pink" with very subtle shimmer in it. Pacific Coast Highway is a light peach, and goes perfectly with Seashell:)

Not the best swatches, sorry! Bad lighting, and not so great camera.
Left-35 MM, Middle- Quartz, Right-Girl Meets Pearl

Thanks for the comment you left on my blog about my new purse. :) Great May favorite choices you have here. I love how they're suitable for everyday wear. I want to try that Girl Meets Pearl highlighter. I can imagine it looks so pretty on the cheeks (or any place that needs highlighting). :)
