Favorites | Top 5 May 2016
To be honest I haven’t been wearing that much make-up this month, but when I have these are the products I’ve been reaching for. And as usual, if I have done a review previously, I will have the link at the end of the post.
So to start with I wanted to talk about my new favorite eyebrow pencil. This is by the brand Studio 10 and I got this in a Glossybox. Now when I first tried this I didn’t really like it, but then I tried it again and I love this. I will say that it is very creamy, and I know that alot of people prefer more of a wax texture, but I don’t really care about the texture as long as it’s easy to apply, stays in place and matches me, and this does all of that. However, I haven’t really tried the highlight side, so I don’t know how that works, and it is a ‘universal’ shade (a midtoned/dark, slightly ashy brown), but I would recommend checking it out.
An other product I got in a Glossybox is the Elisabeth Mott Thank Me Later eyeshadow primer. I’m not really one to reach for eyeshadow primers, just because I don’t really have an issue with my shadows creasing or wearing off, and I haven’t really seen a difference when I’ve used one previously, but with this one I do. This just makes my eyelids look so smooth, it fills in every crease/wrinkle I might have, and I do think it enhances the wear time slightly. Now, this is very thick, and slightly tinted (pale pink/white), but once you blend it out you can’t really see it. However, if you have a deeper skintone it might be more noticable.
On to the faceproducts. I have two of those this month and the first one is the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in the shade ‘Sun-Kissed’. Now I find this to be the perfect bronzer. This is so smooth, easy to blend, long lasting and sheer/buildable, which is perfect since we don’t want to go in with too much bronzer. I don’t really have much more to say about this, but go check it out if you haven’t already!
Now my second ‘face-favorite’ is the Mary-Lou Manizer by TheBalm. I actually just got this 3-4 weeks ago, but this is so beautiful and intense that I can’t stop wearing it! I love using this as a highlighter (obviously), but this is also perfect as an all-over eyeshadow, or in the inner corner just to look a bit more awake. Now, I’m sure everyone’s allready got this in their collection, so I won’t ramble on about it, but this is simply the perfect highlight! Hehe.
My last favorite of the month is the MAC lipstick in the shade ‘Craving’. This is described as a burst of plum, and I do agree with that. It’s kinda like the summer-fall, medium/’dark’, plummy transition type of lipstick, but I think it’s a fun alternative to your typical bright pinks. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the brighter pinks as well, but I just felt like changing it up a bit with my lipcolor this month. Also, this does last for a very long time on the lips, and it is the amplified formula so it doesn’t dry out your lips at all.
So, what are your favorite products of the month? Let me know in the comments, and I’d love to hear from you.
