May Favorites!

Can't believe it's already June! It seemed like May just completely flew by! Here's a few favorites I had from last month...

Jack Black Lip Balms: These are my favorite lip balms EVER. Seriously, if you have terribly chapped lips, you NEED to try these! My favorite is the mint, then the lemon chamomile. They are just fantastic lip balms: your lips not only feel moisturized immediately, but once the balm wears off they really stay smooth (unlike some balms I've tried where you have to keep re-applying a million times in an hour). I especially like to put it on right before bed so I wake up with nice soft lips!

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder: This powder is fantastic! I use this to set my tinted moisturizer everyday and it's fantastic at keeping my combo/oily skin under control. I love that it's translucent, blends really well and it's undetectable!

Nars Laguna: It's pretty obvious by the amount of pan showing that i LOVE this bronzer! Clumsy me dropped it a week ago so although the product didn't break, the hinges did. It gives a very natural glow to the skin and the fine sparkles in it are undetectable once you apply. I'm also a fan of the darker one Nars Casino, but I need to apply that one more carefully to avoid looking too fake tanned and dark. Laguna is definitely a favorite...I'm trying to use up some other bronzers I have before repurchasing since it's a bit pricey, but I know I'll come back to it!

Mac Soba: I rediscovered this in my eyeshadow stash in the beginning of the month and found myself reaching for it quite a lot. It's a medium brown/tan/caramel color with gold shimmer. Sort of looks like a boring color in the pan but it really works well in the crease or on the lid smoked out with darker browns. Perfect if you're in a rush or if you want a soft neutral look.

TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer: You can see my post here on this highlighter. I really have no bad things to say about it, I've been wearing it nearly every single day since I got it!

Let me know if you've tried any of these items or what products you loved most last month!


  1. Great set of favorites. I keep hearing nothing but positive remarks of the Jack Black lip balm. Have to get on that too.

  2. very nice set of faves! i love the jackblack balms and Laguna, and have been curious of the LM powder! ur review is pushing me to purchase!

  3. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (, enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.

  4. i'm on my first Jack Black lip balm this month and so far it's been great! Oh wow if u've hit pan on Laguna it must be darn good :D ! i hope i didn't scare you off but I just went over the EOTD posts you did (with NARS Noveau monde and tons others), all i can say is that the EOTDs you did are stunning ^^!!

  5. @this passenger's element: the lip balms are the best i swear you will love them! :)

    @lilladylife: the LM powder is really great! I used to use Make Up For Ever HD powder and this stuff kicks its butt in my opinion! lol

    @Lisa, thanks so much for the link to that treatment! Isn't it the best when your skin looks good without makeup? I wish my skin was at that point!

    @Jennifer, thank you so much, I'm really glad you like the looks I've done so far! Laguna is great, this is the 2nd one i've hit pan on! lol
